CX Engine 22.0.1 arrived in Porting Kit!
The long awaiting new CX22.0.1 engine arrived for Porting Kit! Although I haven’t been able to test many games yet, a few points are already clear. It hasn’t fixed the biggest M1 Apple Silicon issues yet, including slowness and graphical glitches in some known issue games with Apple Silicon. But it does fix some games and improves performance/experience of the game clients like Steam, Origin and Ubisoft Connect. Especially Ubisoft Connect is now working amazingly well with the new Engine, and as we speak I am testing the Ubisoft Connect games in the database and more. More news about that very soon.
Whats new in the CX22 Engine?

M1 Air user here, Skyrim runs pretty well on a mix of Medium-Ultra settings, but Fallout 3/NV still runs bad. I do feel like there an extra +2 FPS compared to the last time I tested it, and when talking in-game, the framerate jumps up. Hope this can get fixed in another update.
Yep, you are absolutely right. Some ports have performance issues with the Apple Silicon Macs. We are working on Improvements. In some cases MODS can fix stuff as well, although I haven’t find any solutions for Fallout 3/New Vegas. Lets hope improvements by Engine or Apple (Rosetta using the OS update) will fix the issues.
