Hi,

I am considering to get a M1 mac. I have read some inconclusive reports in the forums over the net about how they run ( or not at all ) the CM games. Any first hand experiences with this ?

Someone had already asked before but there were no conclusive answers. Being the victim of change from PowerPC cpus to Intel 20 years ago, again for combat mission ( CM1 on then newer macs were never supported so bought a pc ) , this is of importance to me.

thanks but probably if anyone with a m1 mac shares his/her experience with some referenced runs of small to large scenarios , it can give us an idea. I suspect, at some point battlefront must do native conversions of the games but that time point is not visible to a mere mortal like me.

There was a post on the BFC forums that it runs terribly/unusably.

ARM support is probably part of the Engine 5 work.

I have a basic Mac Book Pro with integrated graphics and the games run fin on it. No idea about M1s though.
