    So you just got a brand new Apple Silicon MacBook and want to play MapleLegends with your friends, but you've run into issues with Crossover/Wineskin. Parallels works, but isn't free. Luckily for you though, VMware Fusion is!

    Installation time: ~ 30 minutes
    • Installing a Windows 11 VM
      • Screen Shot 2023-12-31 at 11.44.17 AM.png
      • This is probably going to take like 15-20 minutes depending on your internet connection
      • Screen Shot 2023-12-31 at 1.14.14 PM.png Screen Shot 2023-12-31 at 11.54.27 AM.png
      • This is necessary to prevent lag and reduce latency and input delay. Make sure you don't allocate more cores/storage than you have on your Mac
    • Install Windows
      • When it asks for your product key, just select "I don't have one"
      • You will need a Microsoft account to log in
      • Complete these steps like you would normally
    • Install MapleLegends on VM
    • Screen Shot 2023-12-31 at 12.22.30 PM.png
      • Install Visual Studio C++ 2015
        • Download Here MAKE SURE IT IS x86
        • You will need this on your VM or else it won't run
      • Here are some tips and tricks to have the best experience
        • TURN OFF/DISABLE Windows Defender!
          • As Mac users, we're not used to our OS deleting files from our computer for fun
        • Legends.ini can have issues running HDClient=2
          • This is because even though you're on a windows VM, your hardware is still a Mac.
          • Sometimes this works for others, but it's safer to not.
        • Control + Command - Move mouse outside of the Virtual Machine
        • Option + Enter - Full screen Maple, without this you might not see your HP/MP bar
      • Issues FAQ
        • - Make sure "Item Pouch" is unequipped
          - [option + enter] to full screen for bosses
      Enjoy Playing MapleLegends ~

    This works! I was able to run MapleLegends on my 14" M1 Pro. Took some time to download and setup windows, but the setup process is fairly straight forward! Thank you so much for the instructions!

    Now that some time has passed, is anyone using this solution on a regular basis? It was very easy to get this solution set up, however it doesn't appear to be a stable solution (at least for me). It's a hit or a miss day by day whether or not the application will open in VMWare. I've also had some extreme lag spikes (such as the frame freezing for 1 to 5 seconds) every few minutes while trying to sell leech.

    However, I can't quite seem to consistently replicate any of the above issues.

    Anyone here has a problem with the Windows installation saying some ESD ISO couldn't be found?

    I use it on a daily basis actually, so there are some quirks for sure:
    1. Item pouch WILL cause you to lag/dc if there are a lot of items on the map. It’s probably better to just keep it unequipped
    2. If you’re bossing and the screen freezes, hit “alt enter” to go into fullscreen, and that should fix your issue. I’ve run a few zak’s and a HT on mac M1 using vmware

    it is a bit janky for sure, but i find that it works pretty well and is fairly lagless

    I’ve also heard crossover 24 works on M1. I haven’t gotten around to testing that yet, but hopefully soon!

    Hi, it appears that the IMGs no longer show up. Can they be fixed? Thank you!
