While you might be tempted to check the upcoming features do not upgrade to macOS Catalina as it does not allow the wrappers for Game Center, World of Tanks, World of Warships to run as they still 32-bit.

 

Why is this important?

 

The native MS Windows app - World of Tanks - is a 32-bit app.  In order to run in a 64-bit OS you need to have a compatibility layer that provides a 32-bit environment.

 

Not sure how the Wine Team will accomplish this - especially if Apple excludes the ability to install 32-bit code.

 

Running MS Windows on your Apple-branded hardware is fairly easy to do - so we may need to do this if a solution is not found when macOS Catalina is released.

Hopefully there's a fix soon, because I don't have any copies of Windows lying around my house. I've been using Macs at home since 1994.

You do not need a Retail copy of MS Windows. 

 

Microsoft allows you to download an ISO of MS Windows which the Boot Camp Assistant will use to install MS Windows on your Apple-branded hardware.  Just remember to click on - No serial number - in the MS Windows setup when prompted after the restart.

 

You can then run MS Windows natively for, IIRC 30 days, without the prompts for activation appear.  If you like MS Windows then you can purchase an Activation Code [can be as low as USD 30 - look online for more information.

 

Just remember that MS Windows will not be the default boot OS after Boot Camp Assistant.  You can change that in [System Preferences ...][Startup Disk] permanently - OR - hold down [option] when booting and you will be presented with a list of available OSes to boot into.

macOS Catalina is NOT pre-installed on any currently shipping macOS hardware.  The latest shipping version of macOS is macOS Mojave [macOS 10.14.6].  Wargaming Game Center runs on macOS Mojave.

 

You would have consciously chosen to install macOS Catalina through either the Apple Developer or Apple Public Beta programs.  Both programs tell you that the OS is for testing only and is subject to change.

Not sure this Forum is the best place for updates as Wargaming has not communicated the gravity of the situation.  CodeWeavers, who produced the various wrappers - WoT Mac Wrapper, WoW Mac Wrapper, WoWp Mac Wrapper for Wargaming, is not anticipating an ALPHA version of the WoT Mac Wrapper for several weeks.

The update is only for the Wargaming Game Center.  It is unlikely that the WoT Mac Wrapper will be ready on that date - but one can dream ...

I ran a few games last night and it is working all fine.

The lack of being able to update World of Warships is beyond the scope of the WoT Mac Wrapper Support Forum - please go to the World of Warships forum for that issue.

I am running Catalina and having this issue as well. I was able to quickly launch WGC and hit the play button to launch WOT. I then force quit WGC before WOT gets to the login screen. It then doesn't pull the account from WGC and asks me to input my creds. Once I do and hit login, I get a message that it cannot connect to server and I need to update my app.

 

TLDR...even tho i bypassed WGC, I am unable to play as WOT cannot update now.

I contacted Codeweaver support and this is what they recommended. I've ran the uninstall scripts and installed Game Center. WOT is installing now so I dunno if it'll work in the end.

 

-------------------------------------------

 

Thank you for writing us. Please try a clean slate by completely removing WGC and WOT using our uninstall scripts, then reinstall through the Wargaming.net Game Center client again.

You can download the scripts from -
https://www.codeweavers.com/xfer/uninstaller-oem/WOT-uninstaller.zip
https://www.codeweavers.com/xfer/uninstaller-oem/Wargaming-Center-delete-script.zip
using the access code 'oem'.

Unzip it if that doesn’t happen automatically. Your computer will most likely block the scripts from running the first time you try to open it. If this does happen, you can get around that by opening System Preferences > Security and Privacy and clicking on the Open Anyway button near the bottom of the window.

After the script runs, you will see a notification in the top right corner of the screen. At this point you can empty the trash, reboot the computer, then reinstall the game through the Game Center at the following links:

http://redirect.wargaming.net/WGC/Wargaming_Game_Center_Install_NA.dmg
http://redirect.wargaming.net/WGC/Wargaming_Game_Center_Install_EU.dmg
http://redirect.wargaming.net/WGC/Wargaming_Game_Center_Install_RU.dmg

I also suggest creating a World Of Tanks Folder in another location ( i.e external drive) other than using the default C:drive, direct the new install there. This pending that you have the enough required space. Let me know how this goes.
