    Hi SlippuryPete,

    I don't own a Mac so I'm not able to test this, but as Wine does support DX9 I don't see why not... why not give it a try and let me know? ;)

    Unworthy
    I've tried to install it through Wineskin in the Mac app that's downloadable via the main site, but it needs the 4.5.2 .NET Framework and I encounter problems when trying to install it. According to the WinHQ website I need to install the Framework on a clean copy of Wine or Wineskin in order for it to work. I've done this, but after installing MapleLegends and Legends+ on that fresh wrapper I encounter issues where neither will open. Is there someone who I could chat with who constructed the MapleLegends app that would know all the supporting drivers/installations required to run MapleLegends?

    You're probably best starting a new thread concerning it; Mac setup's a bit out of my scope! :(

    Random little thing that drove me a tad crazy and a fix for it;
    I couldn't launch it I kept getting this error message:
    [​IMG]

    I was so confused since I just reformatted this pc, I knew my antivirus did not touch with anything, and I was trying it with a fresh install of Legends. Well after scratching my head for longer than I care to admit I saw that its looking for MapleLegendsWindow.exe obviously well I'm sure when you first released this that was the client name however now the client is named:
    [​IMG]

    I feel stupid for not catching it right away haha but for anyone attempting to using this going forward rename the client to "MapleLegendsWindow.exe".

    Thanks for the report, I'll get that fixed for next update - the client seems to have alternated between 'window' and 'windowed' a couple of times now!

    Does this client have any benefits at Zakum/HT GFXing?

    Hi Popeye,

    It's not specifically engineered to adjust 'GFX-ing', but as it generally improves performance on W7/W8/W10 it might help otherwise!

    New version available!

    Public v0.9.3


    Code:
    [ DLL version:         0.7.2.5 ]
    [ Config Tool version: 0.5.3.0 ]
    UPDATE NOTES
    +Windowed mode now attempts to find both 'MapleLegendsWindow.exe' and 'MapleLegendsWindowed.exe', due to the client being renamed again
    +A new icon for both the installer and application!

    KNOWN ISSUES
    With 'Borderless Window' enabled, switching to fullscreen (ALT+ENTER) and back to windowed mode results in a normal bordered window​

    v1.0.0 FINAL TEASER

    Most likely this update will be available pre-Christmas, though it will be the final update to the tool and no further support to issues with Legends+ will be provided due to financial and time constraints.

    + True widescreen, both 16:9 and 16:10

    NICE!!! I was sad when I realized I can't play in 1600x1200 because I'm only using 1080p and not 1440p but this is great!

    Minor update to the tool only, not the aforementioned update. OP download link has been updated.

    Public v0.9.3.1

    Code:
    [ Config Tool version: 0.5.3.1 ]
    UPDATE NOTES
    + Fixed a typo on one of the tool error messages (...yes this is seriously the reason for this update)
    + Fixed a bug causing the installer to use the old icon on Windows 10
    + Updated the donation account so I actually receive notification E-mails now (not that I've received any, but it's nice to have!)​

    This is awesome. Footage recorded in game could mean when it's uploaded to Youtube, it won't have those irritating black bars. Can't wait!

    Hi Ting,

    Most likely the only new native aspect ratios will be 16:9 and 16:10. I'd considered native 21:9 support but the additional work required means it's unlikely to make it in to the final tool update.

    Sorry about that!

    Will this require a re-download because we have no client updater ?

    Update downloads to this tool are available in the original post; you'd need to download this tool for these features.

    The tool is entirely optional and isn't part of a normal MapleLegends install.

    Somehow missed this comment, sorry! I no longer have plans to open-source the tool, but may provide a more generic tool for other servers in the future.

    I was looking into see if it's possible (and maybe I can try) making custom resolution with different aspect ratios other than 800x600 but now I know that its more than possible to do so!
    Also, what is the max native resolution for 16 by 9 aspect ratio? lower than 720p I'm assuming?

    Great work!

    The internal resolutions I've implemented are 1067x600 (16:9) and 960x600 (16:10), which will only function if the user's monitor/GPU support at least 1280x720. (If your system doesn't support 720, widescreen support is disabled in the tool.)

    After they're drawn to this it's fit to the resolution the user selected.
