Hi everybody,

Is there a way to run games that only runs on windows x64-bit systems? When I look at the wine versions, it only gives x86 versions.

64-bit installs are not really supported, as they can be unstable, and a lot of dependencies are not scripted or just do not work with 64 bit wine, hence the 32 bit support. Is there a specific reason that you need 64 bit, besides being able to use more RAM (if that is possible) in Wine? Or is there a particular app that is only 64 bit? A good place to check for stuff like this is http://appdb.winehq.org and clicking "browse" to search for a specific app. Most don't work, some work well, and even fewer work perfect. It really depends on the application in question. 

PS, you can do manual installs, if you want. If you go to PlayOnLinux -> Tools -> Manage Wine Versions, you will be able to download wine versions that mirror the others, but in 64 bit.

The reason I wanna use a 64 bit version, is because I want to try to work fifa 15 which only support 64 bit. I use PlayOnMac (because I am a Mac user) and when I go to tools -> Manage Wine Versions, only 32 bit versions appears. Is it possible to get 64 bit on PlayOnMac?

Nope

Longer answer: I think there's some difficulty to get cross-compilation going to target Darwin 64bit platform, so it is currently disabled; Only Tinou or MulX can confirm this.

Wine64 is not supported on OSX yet. It's even not a cross-compilation problem

I would also like to know how to do this. WineHQ says World of Warcraft works fine with 64 bit. I have 64-bit Ubuntu installed. I have 64-bit wine installed. I have 64-bit WoW installed. Yet, Playonlinux absolutely refuses to allow me to run 64-bit wine at all. I have gone to the "PlayOnLinux -> Tools -> Manage Wine Versions," and that does absolutely nothing. You can go to the window, all it does it show wine versions nothing else. It shows that I have both x86 and x64 versions installed but no way at all to choose which I want to launch. I searched through the config files and could not find any way either. I have spent a couple hours now searching online and no one seems to now how. Everyone wants to run 32 bit games on a 64-bit system and that is all the information there is that I could find. I want to run a 64-bit game on a 64-bit system. How do I do this when I have 64-bt wine, game, and os installed?

Hi, I have been using PlayOnMac for several years and recently require to use a molecular graphics program that runs in 32-bit (for education) and 64-bit for real computation. It looks as though heavy graphics, as in games may be requiring the same OS and that there is presently no work-around. Is it on your "To Do" list or must I try and use another programme eg Vitual Box?

It seems 64bit Wine is not possible on OS X ("incompatible ABIs" - the way the two OS use CPU registers is not compatible).

The short version is that it's not happening anytime soon.

Hi
I read something about new version of 64bit wine in this website " https://repos.wine-staging.com/macosx/beta/ ". After complete installation i have new wine on my application list, but i cant find it in  "Tools>manage wine" list.
Is there any chance of running 64bit games with "PlayonMac" through this new wine or not?

And how i can use this wine in my "PlayOnMac" application.

thanks :)

the latest version of the MacOS (Catalina) will only run 64 bit apps. Is it possible to convert PlayOnMac to 64 bit?

64bits wine will work on 64bits OS, however it will only runs 64bits programs.

Wine and codeweavers are looking for a solution to run 32bits programs on 64bits OS, which is a bit trickier
