Hi everyone, looking for help on a minor issue - it's completely playable but fixing this would be nice.
I play AoE2 DE on my M1 Macbook pro, and it runs really well, including multiplayer. Only issue is a slight stutter that happens exactly every 8 in game seconds (which is around every 5 real-time seconds).
I've scoured the forums here and Reddit and it seems I'm not alone. I've tried using the updated DXVK, the updated Vulkan, I've put the new DLL files in the c drive and in the crossover app package, but it doesn't make any difference. I'm about 80% sure I've done everything right and I've tried different combos of solutions but just haven't been able to fix it. Has anyone overcome this issue?
(On another note, I have tried to play an old copy of AOM and it stutters MUCH more regularly, every second or so, and for longer. Tried to also fix that but it seems that it might be an issue with 32-bit programs)
