Hello ,
Have you done any tests on the new Mac mini M1. Is Clarisse optimized or works with Rosetta 2.
Thank's

Hi
Clarisse does not currently support the latest mac architecture due to various limitations and terminations of required libraries.

Sam said on discord they may look into but it's a lot of extra work just for a single OS ..so don't expect it to show up soon.


I'm bitchy about M1 because we will have to choose if we will decide to invest in developing for another CPU/GPU/API
that's not something that makes me happy
cross platform dev is already a pain, adding new CPU architectures + their forced API is the icing on the cake

I don't know anything about programming, but it looks like this type of prossessor architecture "is" the future

I guess the question is - does it work under rosetta at least? Anyone tried?

Cheers!

No it doesn't even start (tried the new PLE 5.0 release on a MacBook Air M1). Would be nice to hear if there are plans to make this work in the near future or if it is rather far away if at all?

It's most likely the OS version causing problems, not the M1. Someone in the Isotropix Discord server managed to run 4.0 on M1 through Rosetta. We don't know about 5.0 though.

What macOS version are you using?
