    i saw (and commented on) some previous posts that quickly turned into a cesspool of toxicity and so i thought i'd make my own post and hope that this one doesn't go down the drain so quickly...

    anyways,
    I followed all instructions posted on the mac install guide. I have crossover v21, I have the server downloaded, and I have a mac... I'm running osx ventura with m1 chip and when I try to open up the server through crossover it shows that a new application is opening but no new window opens up and the server never actually starts running.
    My battery does drain as if it's running in the background though... I'd be happy to provide more details if someone could please direct me. I hear many mac users are able to open the server so pls lets all stay positive and help your neighborhood friendly Rabbi out eh?

    Peace, Love,
    -Rabbi

    I apologize that you had to witness that, this community isn't normally like that.

    Okay, onwards to trying to assist you.

    According to https://www.macworld.com/article/672681/list-of-all-macos-versions-including-the-latest-macos.html
    your mac should be compatible

    Theres a guide in the macOS installation thread that has a few workarounds
    https://forum.maplelegends.com/index.php?threads/new-macos-installation-guide-faq.38764/

    since the client doesn't seem to open, do you have an antivirus by chance thats blocking the game from opening?

    Theres a link thats provided in the macOS guide on how to get passed the antivirus thats blocking it here
    https://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/mac/mactutorial/bitdefender

    and further issues could be tweaked from the same guide here
    https://forum.maplelegends.com/index.php?threads/new-macos-installation-guide-faq.38764/

    ^
    click this box thingy and it should open up

    Please refer to the spoiler labeled "Crossover" and locate [​IMG]Game Doesn't Launch![​IMG] that you're trying to troubleshoot and the guide should be able to let you successfully open and play MapleLegends.

    Good luck and have fun.

    I didn't download any antivirus software but I am new with mac so maybe there is something by default that I am missing. I also tried changing the disk setting for crossover but still nothing...

    Which version of crossover did you download?
    If you downloaded 20.0.4 then give 21.0.0 a try

    Download & install Crossover 21.0.0 from here

    The application should produce a log file even if it doesn't start, are you able to copy paste what is written? Helps a lot for debugging the problem!

    Another option is to use Parallel Desktop. The Crossover option just simply won't work for me, tried multiple fixes, still not working. Untill I just fed up and just install Parallel Desktop and bammm~ it's working great until now.

    Honestly it might be because you’re on Ventura, I’ve seen countless posters on Ventura asking for help on the MAC installation thread - no reply and no solution. I’m on catalina rn and it works fine, but my mac really needs an update :( too bad I’ve never seen anyone who got it to work on Ventura though

    this is an important info. while im not a mac guy, it is probably beneficial to know certain combination of crossover and OS versions are not known to work

    Yeah this is what I'm gonna try. I've tried a few fixes so far for crossover and no luck so far. I'm way more familiar with windows so lets see how this fake windows will work!

    I think you are right. Ventura probably changed something arbitrary that will just be an extra number of hours for the programers to deal with in order to get the server running easily on new mac os

    alright thanks for continuing to check up on this forum post and all the additional comments... here's where i'm currently holding in this topic

    I downloaded parallels and intalled the server on the fake windows and I get some windows error MSVPC140.dll not found and also VCRUNTIME140.dll

    I tried reinstalling the server and still got the same error. I also tried downloading vcredist from windows but I'm not sure if I installed it correctly on this fake windows. Still no server but I hope no one stole my ign in the meantime...

    i believe this one requires vc2005 run time. try installing this https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26347 and see if it works out

    You're almost there, sadly it didn't work with Crossover.. if you stumble upon a Gr2D error
    ^ click this box to expand

    This would fix that, as for your character name you're able to check with the discord command using $maple "Character_Name", if you don't have or use discord you can forums DM me so that no one takes it if you choose to post it here, I can check for you if the name is taken or not, and if its not I can reserve the name for you for when you've got the game up and running.

    You could try downgrading to Catalina, Big Sur or Monterey below 12.2.1 (a commenter in the mac installation guide said ML worked fine on those versions). Not an ideal option imo since Catalina is obsolete and Big Sur is likely to stop receiving updates soon, and I can only find Monterey 12.6 in the appstore. but still, downgrading would probably work

    Some games block "virtual machines" from playing their games, it depends on which VMware they're downloading and using to play any game.

    This also includes downloading dlls.

    your reply is off-topic, but i'll address this either way. the game here is ML, and afaik, kimmy does not set any restrictions of what so ever to prevent any player from using VM for the sole purpose of playing ML.

    and on another note, we are talking about vcrun2005sp1 right now. this is microsoft's official redistribution, a REQUIREMENT for several apps, and games to even launch. any games that blocks dlls from that redistribution is equivalent of blocking windows itself

    How is that off-topic, MapleLegends is a game. OP is having issues with their VMware (Virtual Machine ware) and is currently having issues with how it is handling the files, including the dll(s). as shown here.

    I don't understand how you're not processing that information.
