    Device: MacBook Air M1 2020 8 GB RAM
    OS: MacOS 12.0.1
    Method: CrossOver
    Store: Origin
    Resolution: 1920x1080
    Settings: Low
    Framerate: 5~15 FPS
    Comment: no counter, unplayable after you load into the world due to low FPS (5-15 frames). Was running from a hard drive, this could affect the performance.

    OS: macOS Monterey 12.0.1
    Method: Crossover 21
    Store: Steam
    Resolution: Lowest Possible
    Settings: Lowest Possible
    Framerate: Ranging from 20-30 FPS when driving in the game
    Comment: This only applies to Solo Mode, I haven't tested online performance. The game can run at its highest settings and highest resolution but is unplayable (about 5-15 FPS and probably best for just for taking photos)

    Comment: Terrible performance, even in the lowest settings available. Music and sound effects are choppy from time to time. However, the menu loads with maximum FPS.
