|Everything maxed out is fine (works slightly better with lower settings, though)
|Excellent performance. Better than running via Crossover / Rosetta as it avoids the heavy stuttering/lag whenever other players are on screen. Not perfect, as frame rate varies quite a bit, roughly between 40 and 80fps, but still the best I've seen TF2 run on M1 yet., Mouse behaved very strangely until I did the following: run macOS at 1080p (low resolution) by holding the Option key to selected "Scaled" in Display preferences, then also set Windows to be at 1080p. I needed to set "sensitivity" in Team Fortress 2 to around 12. I also had no sound from the Windows VM until I toggled the Mic access on and off in Parallels.
