Smooth FPS on Mac M1?

How to get the game running smoothly using Crossover 22? I tried with and without DXVK and all graphical settings, nothing seems to make much of a difference. Lots of stuttering in open areas and during combat. Indoors (especially on my ship) is very smooth.

That is going to be very hard to accomplish with an M1 Mac. The problem is that any game written for Intel needs to get converted to commands for Arm 64 bit that M1 mac's are running.

The game behaves great on Intel based mac's (low graphics on Intel GPU / High Graphics with Dual Graphics Cards (Intel / AMD)

It's not only the M1. The Intel emulation itself should be pretty fast and more than sufficient to run a game from 2011. The problem is that SW:TOR is a 32Bit game (like so many others unfortunately) and these ALL run like crap, since they have to emulate 32Bit programs in a 64Bit code page, and the conversion somehow is extremely inefficient

Games from the early 2000's are even worse off. Frames are below 10fps.

If you want to play old Intel games... get a PC. That's just what it is right now.
