@dzm06 I'm 64 bit but it's non-metal. It think the metal requirement is what's really gonna screw people. It's not gonna happen for me but I appreciate you trying. Standard smile

@Aoqi888 macOS has been 64-bit for a while, and The Sims 4 has been too. The difficulty is the Metal graphics change from Apple. Are you certain you can't update to a version of macOS that supports metal? Or is the problem that your GPU doesn't support Metal? What GPU/hardware do you have?

@Pr1nc3ssam13You don't necessarily need to upgrade all the way to Catalina, but you DO need to be on at least El Capitan (10.11), the first version of macOS that supports Metal AND you need to be on a computer that has a GPU that supports Metal.

What Mac model/year are you on?

 

Note: Mojave and Catalina won't install on Mac hardware that doesn't support Metal, so if the App Store is willing to let you proceed with the installation then you be OK.

@dzm06 Yeah, I'm on Sierra but the problem is that my computer is not Metal compatible. I checked yesterday.
