    I frequently have issues with FGU crashing on launch on my M1 Mac mini. Usually running the updater fixes the problem. Last week I did have to remove the FantasyGrounds application file from the applications/smiteworks/Fantasy Grounds folder and re-run the updater (which downloaded the app again) which fixed the issue. I guess Rosetta doesn't like something about the FGU update process.

    I'm also pleased to report that the previous crashing the wi-fi issues I was having appear to have been resolved when I replaced my router and was able to Ethernet cable up. Ran a session last Friday without any issues at all and MUCH quicker than my old Mac mini. Really looking forward to native support 'cause it should really fly!

    No, but I did figure it out. New M1 and, of course the first thing I did was try to get FG installed and it didn't work. But then I updated the OS. After that it opened the Fantasy Grounds .pkg file, asked to install Rosetta, then installed FG. Now FG runs fine. Blazingly in fact. I haven't migrated my campaign data yet or host a game, but seems good so far.

    Hey there, do you have any experience with older MacBooks? I have a 2015 MacBook Pro i7, and it runs FGU fine except that the fans go crazy when I run it, and the thing really heats up. Iím afraid that if I run it for long periods of time Iíll ruin my MacBook. I checked the CPU in Activity Monitor and itís running between 60 and 110%. Do you have that issue with the new M1 Chip?

    I have player with old MacBook and Unity is such power hog there -- the battery is over in less than half an hour, fans cause lift off and the only way to lessen the pressure on the machine is to use the /vsync command to reduce the frames, but this makes the whole experience shoddy
    The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.

    I ran FG and FGU on a 2012 mac mini for years. The fans ran constantly and increased/decreased when maps were opened. The 2012 mini had a bog standard intel integrated graphics chip and only a i3 two-core processor. The M1 Apple silicon blazes in comparison without a fan and it doesn't produce any noticeable heat. Other graphic intensive applications, like using DungeonFog, InDesign, LogicPro and other heavy applications, has no lag and super performance. I have yet to encounter an incompatibility issue with any applications. So far this has been incredible. They must have their hands on a crashed UFO and revere engineered it into the M1 silicon.

    I have the Air and output FGU to a 31" screen at highest resolution as I am running google Meet on the laptop screen. The laptop isn't even getting warm. Crazy
