Minecraft compiled natively for Apple Silicon.
A tool which lets you run Minecraft natively on Apple Silicon chips. At its current state, it is able to add a profile to the official Minecraft launcher which would allow it to launch the native version of Minecraft. The whole process is automatic and is done with a click of a button.
It is written in Swift and is available as an app for macOS.
To install M1necraft, open the Terminal app (hit command+space to search for it), then paste the following into the terminal:
curl -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/raphtlw/m1necraft/main/installer/install.sh | bash
hit enter after pasting it.
Once the installation is complete, all you need to do is just open M1necraft from the launchpad (or command+space and type "M1necraft"), and then press the "install" button on the corresponding version that you want to install.
Done! 🎉 Enjoy Minecraft on your M1 mac.
Using the Azul Zulu JRE built for arm64, I was able to launch Minecraft, achieving higher performance than using the JRE binaries for Intel's x86_64. It started out as a command line program written in Rust but is currently written in Swift using the SwiftUI framework.
