Installing on a Mac M1 Mini

Just got an Mac M1 Mini. Went to Eve Online’s download page, and it knew I was on a Mac. However, when launching the Eve Launcher, it said it needed to install Rosetta. I know that Eve Online runs natively on Macs since late last year, so why is it asking me to install Rosetta? I thought that was only needed for Intel chips.

Sorta answer: just have to click through it.

There’s some fellow Mac users: Mac OS - EVE Online Forums

The launcher needs rosetta, but eve itself runs natively. Just install rosette (you’ll need it for other apps swell) it runs like a charm.

I am returning the Mac Mini. It is the 8CPU/8GB (default) version, and the game stutters half the time when coming out of warp. Docking also seems to take a long time. So I’m going back to something I know works well: a ninth gen I7 with a graphics card. I would get a Mac Studio, but at $2k that’s not in the cards right now. Maybe in the future.

Have you tried to install linux on it before selling??
It might work better on Linux since Eve is not M1 native…

Eve is M1 native, just the launcher isn’t for some weird reason.
