Why does it jerk when I scroll in Rome Remastered?

It doesn’t really matter that much which resolution you have on your Mac M1 system, what you need to do is lower the Quality (detail) level.

Compare settings for Rome on M1

Everything else equal, you will eventually find that the big culprit for bad graphics and jerky and unsmooth scrolling on M1 boils down to the Quality setting. Look at this choppy scrolling with HIGH graphics quality setting:

(Quality: HIGH)

Now look at this with MEDIUM:

(Quality: MEDIUM)


(the only setting altered is the Quality – Medium instead of High)

How do I change the graphics values in Rome Remastered?

Press Esc (Escape key) to open the Rome in-game menu. Click on SETTINGS on the left banner menu. Then click on GRAPHICS SETTINGS. Change the Quality level to Medium; High and Ultra will give severe scrolling problems making you believe that your computer is much slower than it is or that your graphic card sucks. Rome Remastered is not optimized for M1 (yet) but uses Rosetta. It’s still very much playable, but you need to settle for medium quality setting. You can still have full HD resolution 1920×1080, 120 FPS, and resolution scaling on 100%. You just can’t have the highest quality level settings.
