    Hi Patrick,

    We have spent the last year changing from OpenGL to FMX in Rad Studio. We’re using it internally at the moment and the new Graphic library is running well albeit a little sluggish. Our goal is for that to be included in Optuma 2.2 around the end of this year. Once it is fully running on FMX, a native Mac version is a possibility. We would dearly love to make that happen but can only do so as the tasks align with our other projects. eg OpenGL has caused us a lot of support issues and we are concerned about ongoing support by card manufacturers. So we had to replace the graphics library and we chose one that would give us the flexibility to compile directly to mac.

    There are more items to deal with in that project, but we are working towards it.

    All the best

    Mathew

    Hi All,

    Does anyone have Optuma running on the Mac M1/M2 with VMware fusion?

    And if so, how is it?

    Cheers

    Or, to add on to Simon’s query, using Parallels?  There is a lot of conflicting info out there that seems to be theoretical for the most part, so any real-world experience would be very helpful.  I’m considering a move to a Mac Studio from my aging Intel Mac Pro, but Optuma is a big part of that equation for me.

    Thanks!

    Hey Raaj,

    So I update to a new m1 mac mini, from a mid 2014 Mac Book Pro.  Couple of thoughts.
    It works fine but no noticeable performance difference, which is disappointing.
    The initial setup wasn’t difficult if you follow the instructions available on the Fusion forum.  Quite long winded but it works.

    regards

    Simon
