  1. True, there is a possibility that the app might still work if all the 64-bit library dependencies are somehow avoided. Could we actually be so lucky? And for how long? Has anyone actually tried the 10.15 beta? I'm on a 10-year-old "vintage" MacPro5,1 that won't be supported by 10.15 and will have to consider my options in the Fall. I'm certainly curious as to whether, or not, the app runs under the 10.15 beta.
  2. It is more than a rumor. MacOS 10.15 (Catalina) will end 32-bit app support.
  3. macOS 10.15 is coming.
  4. Good luck, Doc! A lot of us that don't post often will still be thinking of you. Push on through to the other side...
  5. I have a similar configuration mid-2010 cMP5,1 with X5690@3.4GHz and RX580 card at 2560x1440. I also get down into the low 20s fps in city battles but normally in the 40s or better. All I can suggest is to turn down the graphics settings in "preferences'. I have never heard any definitive explanation for the poor performance other than the suggestion that the lack of polygon culling in the display list wastes a lot of work. I've been told that the physics engine and the rendering engine are "intimately" coupled so I think any real change in performance will require a complete redesign.
  6. I didn't respond to the poll because I couldn't overcome my vacillation while trying to make a decision.
  7. Ok, game now loads. I don't know what has changed in the interim.
  8. Game won't load for me either.
  9. Rank would be assigned by SYSTEM and not be a burden on the mission leader.
  10. I believe that the Versailles Treaty may have had a major influence on tank design and manufacturing by forcing the Germans to obfuscate their military rearmament and training.
  11. Maybe it's time to revive that discussion.
  12. On a per-mission basis suppose rank indicators could be provided independently of "game" rank. The intent is to separate accumulated game-rank from the in-game situation and provide a more immersive environment. A mission leader would be given a "Sgt" prefix that would be shown with their handle in-game irrespective of their actual accumulated game rank. Subsequent players would be given a "pvt" prefix to their handle. These rank prefixes would be completely independent of their accumulated game-rank although the "HC" indicator would also be shown if the player was a member of HC. For example, if a HC member spawned into a pre-existing mission their tag might be shown as "Pvt Bigwheel (HC)". A mission leader would always be shown with a prefix of "Sgt". The current game-rank icons would not be shown. New player tags would still be shown in "green". Accumulated game-rank would still be used to determine access to equipment. The purpose of this change would be to make "visible" rank indicators more closely related to game-play roles rather than accumulated experience and equipment access.
