Performance Reports

device playable environment api fps resolution settings notes
💻 M1: MacBook Air 8GB yes Rosetta 2 1440 × 900 Seems to run great.... even "playable" on ultra. Didn't measure FPS. Steam
💻 MacBook Air M1 16GB no Rosetta 2 1440 × 900 Crashes when starting the game Steam
💻 M1: MacBook Pro 13" 16GB no Rosetta 2 1440 × 900 default crashes on start Steam
💻 M1: MacBook Air 16GB no Rosetta 2 1440 × 900 I've tried several settings, none worked Crashed at start every time , Steam
💻 M1: MacBook Pro 13" 16GB yes Rosetta 2 1440 × 900 very low (graphics) , Game crashes if graphics set higher than "very low" preset on map load. Can increase graphics settings after the map loaded without crashing. Using beta channel on steam. Steam
🖥 M1: Mac mini 16GB yes Rosetta 2 2560 x 1440 Default High Gets choppy here and there. Runs normal otherwise. Steam
💻 M1: MacBook Pro 13" 8GB yes Rosetta 2 1440 × 900 Very Low Graphics Preset - Windowed Fullscreen Steam FPS counter wouldn't display. I would estimate 20-30 FPS. A bit jittery in late game. Playable, however it does tax the GPU at 99% consistently. Steam
