Installed with Fallout 76 and Among Us preset from Crossover. Crash after the luncher download and install Genshin, give error about StartThreadpoolIo, this is a missing feature of Wine (documented), probably the Anti-Cheat system, screenshot. Seems with some patch work on Wine 5.19-staging but probably Crossover use more stable versions. Genshin Launcher
💻 MacBook Air M1 8GB no iOS sideload Metal 60 FPS Default Settings The menu loads but the game crashes once you click through the door (presumably when some form of jailbreak/cheat detection is initialized). Title screen runs at 60 FPS - unable to test further.
