    [How to Install the Mac Client for MapleLegends]

    1. Download the MapleLegends NEW Mac Client, click here to download. Click here if you face problems with the first link. (mirror not up yet)
    2. In your downloads folder, double click "MapleLegends.dmg" (your Mac should say verifying and mount "MapleLegends Installer")
    NOTE 1: If it gets stuck on verifying, re-download because you're file was probably interrupted mid-way​
    3. Open the folder, and you should two files

    [​IMG]

    4. Double click "xQuartz-ML.pkg"
    NOTE 1: This is MapleLegends specific, so even if you've installed xQuartz before, please do it again.
    NOTE 2: You only have to do this ONCE, for all future installations/patching of MapleLegends, you can skip xQuartz (MAKE SURE YOU DON'T UPDATE IT THOUGH!)​
    4. Now double click "MapleLegends.pkg" and follow the steps to install
    5. Go to your applications folder and right-click MapleLegends to open! (if you double click to open, wineskin might open instead)
    6. Your game should start running smoothly~

    IF for some reason, your application icon doesn't show up:
    1. Open the MapleLegends.dmg you downloaded
    2. Press "Command + I" on the "Wineskins.icns"

    [​IMG]

    3. Go to your installed MapleLegends application, press "Command + I"
    4. Click on the top left icon and then press "Command + V"
    5. That should copy and paste the icon from the .dmg to your application file!

    [How to Enter Full Screen]

    MapleLegends will now be launched in Windows mode by default. But don't worry! If you love being full screened, there's still a way! It's wayyy easier than before ^^

    1. Find your MapleLegends application
    2. Right-click "Show Package Contents"
    3. Open Wineskin > Advanced > Configuration
    4. Under Windows EXE, change it from "C:\Nexon\MapleStory\MapleLegendsWindowed.exe" to "C:\Nexon\MapleStory\MapleLegends.exe"

    [​IMG]

    5. Relaunch your client, and now you can play full screened!

    [How to Multiclient]

    Some non Mac users might have told you to just double click on your client again but that is not how it works for us, but its really easy to do.

    1. Find your MapleLegends client (in your applications folder)
    2. Select it, press "Command + C" and then "Command + V" (this will make a copy of your client)
    3. Launch it and now you have two windows open :)
    You can do this however many times until your mac explodes OnionNinja
    [MapleLegends Doesn't Run OR Bounces on Doc and Disappears]

    If you get this upon downloading, make sure you used right-click to open. If not:

    1. Redownload & reinstall the file
    2. IF that doesn't work, right-click to "Show Package Contents"
    3. Afterwards go to "set screen options" and put in the following settings:

    [​IMG]

    5. IF you still have issues, try the solution suggested for "IF You're on Mac OS 10.7 or Older"
    [IF You're on Mac OS 10.7 or Older]

    1. If you're on a Mac OS 10.7 or older and your client isn't launching, you'll have to revert to our old settings (which sadly means it's not GFX proof)
    2. Download the unofficial wineskin winery which you can download here (this should automatically start downloading when you click the link)
    3. After it finished downloading, launch the application and click the "+" sign located in the middle left of the window.

    [​IMG]

    4. You can choose 2.22 for full screen mode, or 1.4.1 for windowed mode, and then click download and install
    5. Find your MapleLegends application
    6. Right-click "Show Package Contents"
    7. Open Wineskin > Advanced > Tools > Change Engine Used (located on the right hand side)
    8. Now you're going to see a window that should look like this

    [​IMG]

    Change the engine to the one you downloaded hit okay. IF the engine didn't change, copy and paste the MapleLegends application, delete the original one. Try the steps again on the duplicated MapleLegends. You should now be able to run MapleLegends on your very outdated OS! SeemsGood

    I just want to add some notes here regarding fullscreen mode. If you are a big fan of it, and ONLY prefer playing in fullscreen (like me), checking "Full Screen" in override settings and unchecking "Use Mac driver instead of X11 driver" in other options resolves the issue of screen tearing in fullscreen mode, allowing for a seemingly pleasant experience while walking/teleporting around certain maps like the Free Market and Henesys. The final thing I want to add is that you also aren't to allow for custom resolutions within full screen mode. It seems, however, that Wine is able to force to your custom resolution while booting up the client, but when the Wizet white screen appears, the Maplestory client forces the resolution back down to 800x600.

    Really glad to see MAC users getting some love. One question tho, did the testers try windowed/fullscreen or both at HT/Zak? If so was there any noticable difference in performance?

    I'm afraid I didn't ask about that :( but both should be fine (in theory) since toggling those settings don't affect the solution I found for preventing GFX screen freezes.

    Check your desktop or your finder and look for "MapleLegends Installer" it isn't an actual installer, but rather a folder (or a virtual disk rather)

    A small follow up -- not really an "issue" but just sort of a weird thing I encountered?? I have my bahamut keyed on 9 and for some reason when I hit the "option" key, it activates the bahamut?????? Like I said, not really an ~issue~ but it never happened to me with previous clients so I just thought I'd throw it out there. <3

    Huge thank you for this. I was having so much trouble every time I had to install Legends previously (taking forever to unzip and forever again to install) but this installer was super fast! c:

    Doesn't seem to work for everyone... for the new MacBook Pros, unchecking 'Mac Driver' results in the whole screen flickering.

    I have a small issue as well. I play in both full screen and windowed (when multiclienting) and have my settings as shown by Nise. However, when I use the Cmd+Enter combo to toggle windowed mode, my client gets smaller but the black bars filling up the full screen resolution remains. Any idea how I should fix that?

    Update: This is what my fullscreen and windowed mode looks like respectively.

    Did you apply the fix mentioned in the original post? With downloading the fixed version of the client?

    What version of mac are you on? If it's an older version of Mac, try the last solution. If not, try redownloading & reinstalling and letting me know if that fixes it! ^^
