As I mentioned in other threads, I'm working on a solution involving the use of the 10.13 SDK on 10.14 so that we can continue to build universal, and Codeweavers is working on a solution that will work even after macOS drops 32-bit support entirely, probably through the use of an emulator like qemu.

LOL - So much for the “explanation” — Wine Is Not An Emulator :)
