Defold crash on Air Monterey

I have just upgraded my Mac to Monterey and now Defold crashes almost every time . Up to the upgrade everything was fine. Does anyone have the idea whats going on?

I’d guess it’s a problem with the bundled JDK version (but I actually have no idea / don’t have a Mac with Monterey to even test with). You could try manually updating the bundled JDK to a newer version and then updating the config file inside of the .app too. You could try using Zulu instead too.

It looks like other apps which use Java have issues on Monterey too. You could try their Java specific workarounds and see if any of them work.

Similar issue on macOS Monterey

I have a same issue on my Mac Mini after upgrade Monterey. :cry:

Could you pls share you hardware specs. It’s important in this case

I got the same error after updating macOS :frowning:

I have the M1 air if anyone would like me to do any testing. I won’t be upgrading the OS probably ever in my whole life.

Got the InvokeLaterDispatcher crash as well on a Mac mini M1, Monterey.
Crash log: (15.5 KB)

Defold 1.2.187 is unstable on a new MacBook with M1 Pro crashing every dozen minutes.
On Defold 1.2.188 and Defold 1.2.189 is unusable, crashing every few seconds (probably after adding Rive asset it gets worse, but I’m not sure).
I didn’t want to create a new topic as this is probably the same issue.
