Yes, actually it should.
I just have updated Open Croquet integration with support of SmallFloat64
class, which is used by default on 64 bit Squeak.
I have tested this on Windows'10 with
and Croquet works.
Don't forget to enable B3DXUsesOpenGL=1 in Squeak.ini for OpenGL.

Here is the preloaded 64 bit image:
or do (Installer fromUrl: '
http://sdk.krestianstvo.org/sdk/croquet/croquet-sn.4.mcm') install.

As for macOS, there is seems to be a problem with the B3DAcceleratorPlugin
for 64 bit, which constantly craches the VM.
May be somebody had a success of running B3DAcceleratorPlugin with OpenGL
on 64 bit Squeak for macOS?

Best regards,

> Thanks!
