worrying about single bits- that is premature optimisation ejaculation right there.
Someone devine slap him for overarchieving. ;)

Just to make sure, Spring can't be used on Mac, right?

There were some recent advances that made that possible I think. You'd have to check those threads. Spring certainly doesn't have a technological barrier like that, but rather there are no dedicated Mac devs.

wrong. spring can be used on mac. yeah, we have no active dev and no osx buildslave machine, this is why we don't have an up to date downloadable .app package. the code basicly can be compiled and used on osx and was reported to sync to windows/linux some time ago.

spring 95.0 was the last release with an osx package: https://springrts.com/dl/buildbot/defau ... 5.0/osx64/

Oh, interesting. Personally, I've always thought everyone should just ditch Macs and use Windows to make everyone's lives easier but it's good to have options.
