COD4 & macOS 10.15

MacOS Mojave is unfortunately the last version of macOS to support 32-bit applications:

Why is this important? While CSGO is unaffected, Call of Duty 4 is still built as a 32-bit application and may not function in the next release of macOS, expected summer 2019.

It seems the Aspyr is aware of this and working to release 32-bit versions of some of the favourites, though timelines are unclear for COD4 (if that will even be re-released as a 64-bit application):–GAME-is-not-optimized-for-your-Mac-alert-

  • Currently testing for stability, with aim to release by the end of this week.
  • Results so far indicate the COD4 issues are resolved.
  • Awaiting further results with CSGO.

  • All solutions have been confirmed as successful.
  • Updates are live and ready to download. If you’re having issues with either the CSGO or COD4 tool, especially on Mojave, please download the latest version from the download pages.


[CSGO] Essential Update 2.2.40 – Panorama Time

The latest CSGO update dropped older functionality that was needed by the calibration process of the CSGO Advantage Tool. A fix has already been identified and tested, but will require an update to the tool for all CSGO users.

Active members can update directly from the tool’s Help menu:

The latest version is also published directly on the download form of the CSGO Website:


[CSGO] Update 2.2.32 – Minor Fixes & Enhancements

Version 2.2.32 of the CSGO Advantage Tool just went live. Active members can update directly from the tool’s Help menu:

The changes are largely internal improvements and fixes, including improved crash reporting (so we can better act on the crash reports sent in, with less user input required). The only noticeable change will be that turning off the reduced flash feature should work better now.

2.2.32 Update Summary

  • Minor fixes under the hood.
  • Minor enhancements under the hood.
  • Reduced CPU usage from bhop execution loop.
  • Detangled correlation between bhop and reduced flash.


CSGO Panorama Update Issues Resolved

The CSGO Advantage Tool is once again fully functional & compatible with the latest CSGO update. The root cause of these issues have been identified and have since been resolved.

Edit: This includes the tiny CSGO update that was just pushed a few minutes ago.

After relaunching the CSGO Advantage Tool it should once again be fully functional.

The crashes seen in the tool were a consequence of an overly aggressive deadlock, designed to prevent the tool from making any changes in the game after a potential mis-calibration was detected.

These deadlocks prevent the tool from unintentionally changing something that should never have changed, protecting the user from one of the few things that can get caught by VAC on macOS.

Thank you for the patience!


I'm investigating issues reported in compatibility with the recently released CSGO update.

The tool may face occasional crashes or only partially function due to core changes in the latest update for Counter Strike Global Offensive.

The nature of the cause is not yet clear, making an ETA for a fix difficult to provide at this time. I'll keep this post updated as I'm able to progress the investigation.

Your patience is highly appreciated.
