macOS 13.3 Update really slowed down Crossover

I use Clickteam Fusion regularly with Crossover, opening new windows inside the application takes a few seconds to load now, opposed to before where it was instant. The application otherwise works fine, but using it is pretty frustrating now.

Before I reinstall everything, is there a fix for this? I tried rebooting the computer, and making sure there isn't any other applications open that could be slowing it down.

This is on an M1 Mac mini if that matters at all.

Update: I just saw the other threads about it. Guess it’s a good time to fire up that Parallels trial. Hope there will be a fix soon.

New update since I'm not really seeing anything being addressed with this, maybe something is going on behind the scenes?

The latest update helped a little bit with Clickteam Fusion, but it is still pretty broken. Opening up any kind of extra window inside the application seems to be very slow still, which started after the macOS 13.3 update. And it just seems to get slower over time. It gets to the point where the whole application becomes unusable and I have to force quit. When these pop up windows are trying to load up, the whole Mac seems to slow down. Dragging my mouse cursor down to show the dock for example, the dock is very laggy and the animations stutter.

Edit: I went to start a log file, so I ran with options, had it create the log file. I noticed the program is running at full/regular speed when running with options (whether I’m creating a log file or not). The slow downs only seem to happen if I run the program by double clicking the icon within Crossover, or opening it through Finder.

Hi there,

Please open a ticket. We don't have any reports of other applications slowing down with Ventura 13.3, so we aren't looking into the matter.
