OpenGL problem

I’ve tried to install SpaceEngine on my M1 Max but it immediately ran into an error when starting it up.


In the space engine community on reddit someone mentioned: “Nothing to do with Space Engine, I'm afraid and everything to do with your Crossover OpenGL support. There doesn't seem to be a readily available fix for this, I'm afraid.”

Will there be OpenGL support or is this impossible?

OpenGL support on macOS is capped at 2.1 compat profile. Anything running through Wine that needs OpenGL above that will not work

Maybe try mesaforwindows?

You may want to put the dll file in the game folder or crossover bottle replace the old one in C:/windows/system32/

I'd expect software rendering on a relatively modern game to be downright unusable.

The only other option I could think of would be to integrate Zink into Crossover, but I wouldn't expect to see that for quite a while.
