[M1] FL studio won't open my FLP anymore because of Arcade Output Plugin

Greetings to whom it may concern,

I have quite the dilemma on my hands. Last night I was working on a project within FL Studio. During the project I was able to open my third party plugin Arcade by Output. I was using the plugin in the piano role and was able to make great headway on the project. I saved the project in hopes to continue working on it today. All that to say, this is what happened. I went to file->open->Selected Project and it appeared as if it was about to load up the project and then I noticed in the top left load out window where it shows my first and last name the files it was uploading. The moment it got to arcade, it froze and the wheel on the mouse went round and round. I'm locked out of my project now after all my hard work.

So, I tried restarting my computer. I went to Output's website and notice they had an updated version of the Arcade plugin. They even had an arcade updater that they recommended downloading if you already had arcade on your compute which I did. I tried the arcade downloader which I believe updated it and to no avail. The project still didn't open.

I tried turning my firewall off. The only other thing I can think of is that my wife and I recently moved overseas and I've been using a VPN and we're in a different country. I tried turning the vpn off but that didn't change anything. But that still doesn't make sense because even now after downloading the arcade update I'm still able to open the plugin during any current projects. I can open the plugin during a current work segment in a project. But once I save a project and try to reopen it I can no longer re-access that project. I have the new M1 chip MacBook Pro and ever since the latest update of FL Studio all my third party plugins have ceased to work and I can no longer access old projects.

Somebody please help me. I'm in dire straights here.
with regards, Isaac
