  1. Ok, I give.  I can't figure out how to level up my caster's spell level ability.  I found one artifact that increases spell skill by 1, but I can't for the life of me figure out what I need to do in order to get the spell skill to go up.  I'm including copies of my mage as she's built in the hopes that someone can tell me how to increase spell skill somehow other than starting over (or using character editor).

    What does run Catalina?
    Long live Mac OS Cataclysm.


    Ouch, but not wrong lol. :D

    If you must run Catalina (some app or your mac needs it or you have no backup) and you have a lot of 32-bit GOG apps you could consider something like Crossover to run the 32-bit Windows versions in a bottle. It's an expensive solution, and often tricky (or for some apps impossible) to get running, but depending on how many old apps you have it could be worth it.


    Good recommendation, but I found something that I consider even better:  Dual boot Mojave/Catalina from one APFS disk!  I was a chicken and used a bootable USB stick that I put Mojave on, rather than going straight in with the native Recovery Mode.  I now have a second boot option when I restart my computer, and have successfully run Avernum.  


    Sadly, it seems that Spiderweb pulled the Mac version of the Geneforge Saga off of Steam, so I can't reinstall it.  Grrr....

    Edit - Did you mean Original Avernum or Remake Avernum (which work on Catalina)?




    Welcome to Spiderweb Software. Please leave your remaining sanity at the door. You may want it back someday.  :)


    That's Avernum version downloaded from GOG.com.  Also, tried downloading the Geneforge demo from the Spiderweb site and that also looks like it's only 32 bit.


    The Avernum demo from the Spiderweb site works on Catalina.


    Also, sanity is over-rated. ;)

  4. I have purchased several Spiderweb games through both Steam and GOG.  The Geneforge Games no longer run due to them being 32 bit and I am not able to get Avernum to run.  I am able to play Avadon, though.


    I have tried to control-click to open Avernum, but it crashes on start.  I have also manually allowed full disk access to Avernum. 


    Any suggestions?
