Mac nightlies?

Post by Gannet »

Hi
I've been watching the nightly builds for Residual but it seems the Mac nightly hasn't been updated for about a month now. I have no idea how the nightlies work so just thought I'd ask here to see if anyone knows what happened to them? There's been a lot of commits in the last month so I'm keen to try the latest build (not so keen to try building it myself though...)

I've been told that there is an issue with the compiler used for mac builds. Hopefully we can get it sorted out soon.

Just to bump this again, looks like the builds for both mac and linux have been stuck since July.

Just checking in on this. The last Mac nightly was from August 12, 2018. The only nightly from 2019 is the Windows version.

Also, any chance of a 64-bit build? macOS is expected to drop 32-bit support in the next major release.

Just checking in again. I hope Mac support going forward hasn't been dropped entirely.

Just seeing if the situation has changed at all. I really hope Mac support hasn't been dropped.

It seems that the latest nightly build is still 32bit, so it can't be opened in macOS Catalina

Any chance the nightly builds from Mac will include the Stark engine for testing The Longest Journey? It's present in the Windows nightly build but the Mac build doesn't seem to recognise the game at all - according to the console it just searches using the Grim, Myst or Monkey Island 4 engines.

Thanks :)
