I use a MacBook 14" M1 Max and I installed CrossOver 23.5 (18.104.22.168528). Then I installed aoe2de from crossovers list of installable apps. I enabled d3dmetal and the game runs great even in high resolution mode. I haven't experienced any stutters so far.
The only issue I have is that the buttons in the main menu have no visible text. how it looks. It only happens when I enable d3dmetal. The issue goes away when you disable d3dmetal and enable DXVK instead (but then the game stutters every 5 seconds)
Does anyone has the same issue? Do we have a solution for this?
I even tried to run it with winetricks with the same result. I guess it's an issue with d3dmetal. Any suggestions how this issue can be solved?
I believe you have to install DirectX for Modern Games in order for it to work. The first time I tried I had that exact same issue but when I watched a youtube tutorial I realized I had forgotten to install DirectX, once that's installed it should be all good
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
