Hello there.
I'm having a problem with all other PGE applications apart from the engine where whenever I launch it, it would instantly close and show me an error message that says "PGE Editor cannot be opened because of a problem".
My mac's version is 10.12 (Sierra) and my graphics are Intel HD Graphics 6000 1536 MB. I also use the lab version as the stable version didn't work.
May you please work on a fix for this, or at least suggest a fix for this problem?
I can provide error details if asked.

Hm... Last time I had to make sure all apps should work on at least El Capitan, however, that depends on the Qt toolchain which makes the limit... I see, the minimal supported version by Qt 5.14 toolchain (that got used to building the thing) requires the macOS 10.13 High Sierra minimum. There are two ways on how to get it to work for you:
- Update your macOS version
- I will need to produce the second build variant using an older Qt toolchain for old macs target especially

Anyway, soon I do plan to update the Qt toolchain to make the universal build of all things that will work on both x86_64 and arm64 with no Rosetta usage. At least, Qt 5.15 does also require macOS 10.13 minimum. However, Qt 6 requires macOS 10.14.
