    As for the cpu thing, I think it's because of my dependency on pixels/wgpu. This line blocks for 16ms (60Hz) on Mac even though v-sync is disabled in the code, which causes some keyboard events to be missed and the emulator clock cycle to become much slower than 500Hz. I haven't found a related issue on GitHub for this, so it's entirely possible I'm just missing something here. On Windows it runs fine, but I was hoping I could get it working on my Mac also.
