    MacOS Catalina (10.15) was released today.

    The Launcher will not run as support for 32 bit applications has been disabled.

    any chance there's another launcher in the actual program folder? the linux version still ships both a 32-bit and a 64-bit of both the main executable and the launcher; may just need to change where your shortcut is linked.

    Also seeing this issue and looking for an update. It seems odd that this wasn't prepped well in advance. :-(

    @Chris can this be addressed before the next release?

    Actually it's "only" the Launcher that won't run with 10.15. If you right klick the Shroud of the Avatar Launcher and select "Show Package Contents" you can run the "Shroud of the Avatar.app".
    I am of course aware that you can not patch to the latest Release with this workaround when the next Patch comes out. But you can play for now at least.

    I don't see any other Shroud*.app files other than the Launcher. Peeking inside the Launcher, there doesn't appear to be any other executables there either. The Launcher looks like a Unity + Mono C# app, so I would imagine the Dev team could recompile with 64-bit as the new target and redistribute...

    Code:
    cd Shroud\ of\ the\ Avatar\ -\ Launcher.app
    ➜  Shroud of the Avatar - Launcher.app tree
    .

    @Chris this really needs to be addressed for the next release. I know the Mac community here is small. But, we still want to be able to play.

    I know, Tas is working on this.
    We're having to build new xdelta and other junk to make it work
