    About time you made it 64-bit. My Windows 10 has been 64-bit since it was Windows 7

    • Jeffrey / Oct 8 2019 10:14 am

      The Windows version of the game always had 32 and 64 bit support, it’s just MacOS X was 32 bit for the longest time.

    plz make new death spells in this game plz

    This shouldn’t have been a surprise. Did Apple do this without any warning? Usually apple is friendlier with its developers than to drop a change like this on them without any notice. I certainly hope it doesn’t take you too long to make the upgrade.

  10. Pirates101 / Oct 12 2019 12:06 pm

    How much longer pwz?

    • KingsIsle Community / Oct 15 2019 10:06 am

      It may be some time yet, we are waiting for our software partners to update to 64-bit.

  11. Firstkind / Oct 12 2019 6:15 pm

    the thing is, wizard101 is a game for anyone, it does not need the extra processing power for 64 bits, and some people play that still use a 32 bit operating system, as you can have windows 10 64, some could have windows 7 32 bit

    • jeffrey774 / Feb 14 2020 5:49 pm

      With the 32-bit insecurities showing more and more, and getting more expensive to make nowadays, it makes sense to move to 64 bit, this also allows better graphics and more complex scenes. If you want to see the difference between 32bit and 64bit, go take a look at Second Life on the last 32bit processor, and a 64bit processor more current (Core 2 Duo E6600 for example, to match for 2007.

    any update on when this will be done?

    • KingsIsle Community / Oct 15 2019 10:06 am

      We are having to wait for other external software to support 64-bit. Many game companies are in this same situation.

  16. Luke SkyWalker / Oct 16 2019 12:10 pm

    Yes more Death spells sounds nice, since they took anyway the most important thing that makes death untouchable (bad juju). I wanna see Duncan SoulBreakers storyline he’s always on top of the game yet never heard him and his house are Extremely interesting. i alwasy know he’s A GREEK MYTHOLOGIE HEAD! But behind all the madness he’s a nice fella.

    instead of waiting for other 32 bit players to update to 64 bit, why dont you just make 2 different download versions of the game. the 32 bit version and 64 bit version. so it could save time?
    i just hope it doesnt take too long :/

  18. Anonymous / Oct 18 2019 5:28 am

    Has the game been updated to 64-bit for MacOS yet? I checked the Ravenwood News for the warning message and I see that its no longer up. If it is up to 64-bit it would be nice for you to put another message on the Ravenwood News saying that its been updated.

    • KingsIsle Community / Oct 21 2019 3:50 pm

      No, not yet. It may be a few weeks yet.

  19. Dan Leatherwood / Oct 18 2019 7:00 pm

    not trying to be rude, just helpful… 1-off Windows is hardly the best OS, and i say this as a windows 10 user. 2-this post is about the issues with Mac users and their ability to play the game, all other issues and requests would be more appropriate if addressed to Wizard101/KI directly. 3-Thank you KI for your hard work and dedicated team of developers. This game is absolutely amazing, and I know your whole team is working hard to get it back online for updated Mac users.

  20. Austin Tilford / Oct 29 2019 12:44 pm

    When will it be released? Any date? I dd not see this post unfortunately before downloading Catalina. I hope to play again soon.

    • KingsIsle Community / Oct 30 2019 9:21 am

      Hi Austin! We don’t have a date yet from our partners. As soon as that occurs, we’ll be sure to blast it out on all our channels. Thanks for your patience during this time!

  21. Kinsley Kendrick / Nov 2 2019 3:48 pm

    It won’t take months will it? Just weeks?

    • Olivia Icecloud / Mar 9 2020 11:34 am

      yep, months.. its march 2020 and still no update, still cant pay and play. from a business standpoint, you have to subscribe, to play. there’s SO many macOS users out there which means they’re losing all that money from people who could be paying to play. instead those people are just waiting around for this update that i really hope comes before the next version of macOS is released again… in october…
      im only so salty because i played this game for years. when it first came out to when i left for college 7 years later. so its nostalgic for me and i miss it. and it being 2020 and no solution yet for a simple conflict of a “bit-change”, please, for the long time users, please!

  22. karla / Nov 24 2019 10:46 pm

    I hope the update will come soon

    any update on when the 64-bit version will be released for macOS Catalina users??

  24. KingsIsle Community / Jan 22 2020 9:15 am

    Our apologies about the continued delay! We are working with our partners to get macOS Catalina support implemented as soon as possible. This month has seen some great progress behind the scenes, so we hope to have another update for you soon.

    • Barbara Sandoval / Jan 25 2020 10:55 am

      Pleaseeeeee hurry up !!! I hope to be able to play by February !!!

    • Anonymous / Jan 26 2020 2:55 pm

      Is there a date to when we could expect the update? Even a month would be nice to know. Thank you in advance.

      • KingsIsle Community / Jan 29 2020 8:48 am

        Our apologies, we don’t have a date from our software partners yet. Progress is being made quickly now though, so we expect to be able to provide you with an update finally soon.

      • Talon Silverstaff / Jan 29 2020 9:23 am

        Yes I cannot say the eta date of the project to allow windows apps to run on macOS Catalina. However, I’m part of the team from the company that is testing the software. They are very close of a release. There is a few details that needs addressed to make Kingsisle software to run smoothly.

    • jeffrey774 / Feb 14 2020 5:51 pm

      You may have to roll back to Mojave to play W101.

  26. I’m a returning player from 10 years ago. I just bought my first iMac and remembered
    Wizard101 and wanted download it but got the error and ever since then I’ve been checking for an update everyday. So excited to start playing again!!

  27. GRICOOOOO / Mar 6 2020 11:09 pm

    Can we please have another update soon?

  29. KingsIsle Community / Mar 10 2020 11:56 am

    Our apologies for taking so long to implement a resolution. Our software partner tells us they are close to wrapping up compatibility, so we hope to have a good-news update for you soon.

    • Charles Wion / Mar 12 2020 11:05 am

      Can this update also include some new content…?
      I feel like it’s almost pointless to play when I have finished the storyline, and this game gets way less attention than Wizard101 does. It’s kind of depressing, and it feels like this game has been abandoned.

    • Anonymous / Mar 13 2020 9:38 am

      soon? I had to update to Catalina due to work issues, so I had to cancel my wizard subscription. I am crushed not having been able to play for so many months now

    wizard 101 will still not work on my MacBook Air…..I have restarted it and still doesn’t work. Is anyone else having issues? If so and you figured it out, could you please leave a comment. Thank you!

    • KingsIsle Community / Apr 20 2020 9:30 am

      Does it give you a specific error code? Please try reinstalling the game fresh. If that doesn’t work, you can contact our support team that will be happy to help:
