Performance Reports

device playable environment api fps resolution settings notes
🖥 M1: Mac mini 8GB yes Native 60 FPS We support all the above, at 60fps nominal with no slowdown. the screenshot was taken at 1920x1200 in a 2560x1600 screen default, up to high, setting lowest will give extreme fps rates with vsync off. Runs faster than my i7 mac pro, on the intel binary, it's pretty impressive. fullscreen mode is faster, which is how most folks play. we are solid on vysnc at 60fps with no drops, and without sync, it can push up to 1000+. compared to the Intel build, the M1 version is a lot more stable, and runs way smoother for a rhythm game which is important. We are not taxing on the M1, so i do not expect the Air version of the mac to run too differently. Github or App Store
