[SOLVED] garbled console output and low fps

On Mac, I was experiencing garbled console output and lower than expected fps. More signs of trouble: starting the profiler would error with some "could not read firmware version error" etc.

Console output looked like a bunch of ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ ÿÿ characters

So I thought: ":thinking: let's update the sdk and restart my mac. THAT will fix it.". So, while I was closing all open apps, at some point I ran into Mirror. :man_facepalming:

After closing Mirror, it was all systems go :slight_smile:

Easiest and most effective optimisation session ever.

So yeah, make sure you are not running Mirror lol.

If it's any consolation the next release of the SDK won't connect to the device if Mirror is running for this exact reason. :slight_smile:
