Indeed we did. We got things working in both 32 & 64 bits.
AFAIA the major thing not working right now is the MIDI plugin on MacOS because the current version uses the Carbon API no longer supported in 64 bits. I’d love to see someone shoe the MIDI plug-ins some love.

That plugin contains the non-h/w accelerated primitives. I don't think it works without those primitives (even though with today's JIT VM it might even be usable).
>> I believe that Squeak3D is included in all Sur/trunk VM builds. As Stephane said, he's written a game using it. Soe time last year a few of us collaborated im getting rid of the bugs, due mainly to Stephane having written the game which then forced us to debug the plugin code.
