Mac review feedback: Game doesn't start, only gray screen?!

My games were in review and I got now the feedback, that they not run. After the start nothing happens than a gray screen appear.

I've tested the game on my old mac (Intel) and it worked without problems.

Maybe, thats because I made them with an old Mac Mini (2012) and they were not 64Bit only?

I am not sure. In a few weeks I can test with a new MacMini M1, but for now I didn't have an answer.

    What is the name of your game? I'll try it on my machine.

    currently it was not approved by Apple.

    I have had the chance to test it on an M1 Mac Mini and I see after the start a gray screen, and nothing seems to happen. But I can click around and it seems that the game runs, but behind a gray screen. I can't get out of this screen. This seems to be only on new Macs, because when I test it on the old Mac Mini (Intel from 2012), it runs without problems.

    I thought it might be happen because of the building with the old Intel-Mac, but building process will be done by GameSalad online if I am right. But I can test building with the new Mac Mini M1 in a few weeks and check again, if there are no other possible mistakes I've done...

    Thanks for checking this out. We haven't tested on an M1 yet, so I guess I'll be breaking an M1 laptop out to test with.

    Oh, ok. Please test Mac apps, which were finalized and uploaded with Intel Macs.

    I think it has nothing to to with the build in general, because it will be online on your servers, right? But any problim might be there with the Mac Apps...

    Any news on that?

    I would like to update the apps for Mac soon.

    Also what about the 64Bit-Only for Macs? I think since a few years apps are only allowed as 64Bit-Only apps. This will be done when build with GameSalad, right?

    The last time I updated the app, I think it was 32- and 64Bit and that's why they throw it out of the App Store...

    Happy new Year!

    Are there any news regarding that? The current state is, that I can't provide an update, because of the gray screen...
