Apple M1 Chip on MacBook Pro

As everyone probably already expected, Citra doesn’t currently work with Apple’s M1 chip. Ive only tested 1 game so far, I’ll try another but it instantly crashes when trying to play a game. I wasn’t expecting it to work but just incase anyone was curious.

I was indeed curious about it and I was hoping Citra would run faster on M1 since there is a lot of X86 apps that were reportedly running better on M1 than Intel.

Did you run Citra using the “Open with Rosetta” option? (see the screenshot).rosetta

That option doesn’t come up for me for citra, but in the crash report it does say it is running x86 emulated. I can laugh citra just not load the game file.

Alrighty. Thanks for the update. Looking forward to the developer to announce something regarding M1 support.
