I had to manually move Steam in place because its initial install extract-and-run borked on M1, and then I go download HWBM, and then Steam just flat out lies to me

I had to install the Epic Games Launcher for the _one_ exclusive I use it for (Magic Arena) and even that terrible thing only had a single hiccup (refusing to draw any content in its window on the very first start until I restarted it.)

if only they could have built a complex, sprawling software delivery platform to deliver the bits I don’t need as they are needed

@millenomi Because Steam is bad, they don’t actually look at the binaries to see if games are 32-bit or 64-bit. They depend on the developer reporting that and, AFAICT, defaulted every app into “32-bit only unless they developer told us it was 64-bit”. It’s a nightmare.
