[MacOS] DONE! I am able to play Wakfu again after the process to upgrade to Catalina (MacOS 10.15.0) messed it up!

Shhhess! At last!

After researching past solutions to similar problems with Java and Wakfu, at the end I had to start from zero!

I looked for all the references (files/directories) of Wakfu (especially the directory "zaap") and Java and got rid of them, including Steam to remove all reference in it. 

Then I check in the Terminal that no reference to Java would be available to run.

After that I moved to download and install:

(1) https://download.ankama.com/launcher/full/mac/
Such that it would install Wakfu when I open the Ankama Launcher.
That way I was sure there were no weird cache still affecting it.
After that when I pressed play, it show a message that there was no JDK available, that also was good, meaning it was not getting any Java reference after I removed it.

(2) jdk-8u231-macosx-x64.dmg from https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html and installed it.

FOR THE FIRST TIME since I upgraded to Catalina (MacOS 10.15.0) I was able to play Wakfu again!

So it was about the java version. I had installed the latest version of java, which doesn't work. It wasn't easy to install java 8(it asks you to login) but it worked with java 8. On Linux, I would choose to install game with java that Ankama provides (you can choose in launcher settings, doesn't exist on Ankama Launcher I guess but steam version) and that would make the game playable. That option does not exist on macOS. I guess it should though, getting java 8 not so easy.

However it works without any issue on Windows (not so surprisingly)

So thank you for the solution!
