The old system was great and this one is so bad, I hope they take the person who made this decision out back and flog him with canes until he hits a tiny x that's half the size of his finger. just truly “pathetic” design. Hopefully a senior designer makes refinements in an update.

Catalina and all MacOS going forward do not support 32 bit apps, don't hold your breath for this to work. You would be better off using Parallels or any other virtual machine and install an earlier version of the OS for Everquest.

Would one be better off just installing a windows OS in parallels rather than a 32bit Mac OS? As far as compatibility goes I mean. Running Mac requires wineskin and all that, correct?

Glad I found this thread. My MacOS install of EQ/P99 used to work fine but lately WineSkin won't launch, can't download new "engines", etc. Time to boot up a Windows 7 machine I guess. #WCGW

Once my macbook upgraded to Big Sur (I was trying to keep it Mojave, but had to upgrade for work [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.] ), I have to use Parallels to run P99. It works fine now, but is a little janky on launch, I have to swap between windows and fullscreen mode to fix the resolution, otherwise it's very pixelated. But! It is possible to run P99 on a Big Sur macbook.

Hi guya...
Apple used the M1 chip in lower-end Macs, and when it comes to CPU performance, the M1 beats out even the highest-end chips used in Intel Apple's notebook lineup. The M1 chip has the fastest single-core performance of any Mac, and the multi-core performance isn't too far off from many of Apple's desktop machines

The M1 is Apple’s first custom silicon system on a chip for use in its Mac computer lineup. Since 2006, all Macs have shipped with Intel chips. These utilized the x86 (and later, x86_64) architecture that’s also used on Windows PCs.

M1 chip is the most powerful chip that Apple has created till now and it is almost similar to the A14 chip in the latest *iPhone* and iPad Air models have.
