    MapleLegends for MacOS comes in two forms: Crossover & Wineskin. Please check the relevant section. To know which MacOS you're on, please click the Apple icon on the top left of your screen. Click "about this mac".

    [​IMG] CROSSOVER
    WORKS on MacOS 10.13 and higher (includes Catalina & Big Sur)
    WORKS on M1/ARM products (Macbook 2020+)
    DOES NOT work on Sierra or lower (MacOS 10.12 or lower)

    [​IMG] How to Install [​IMG]
    1. Download the latest MapleLegends Client (Crossover) here.

    2. Download & install Crossover 20.0.4 from here.
    If you are prompted with a "Files have to be downloaded to support this version", click okay and proceed with the installation. Thanks to FlorisFloris for figuring this out.
    (Don't need to put in your real details)
    We recommend buying this product here https://www.codeweavers.com/store, as it's cheaper than buying a Windows OS for Parallels/Bootcamp.
    However, if you don't want to, there is a way to extend the trial period below.


    3. Go to your application folder, find Crossover and right click and press 'open'.
    DO NOT double click.

    4. Press Command + O and open MapleLegends.

    5. You should be able to launch MapleLegends now!

    [OPTIONAL] Apparently disabling "Performance Enhanced Graphics"
    in Crossover allows for smoother frame rates & less lag.
    Additionally, playing fullscreen helps too with CPU usage.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] EXTENDING the Trial Period [​IMG]
    Code:
    1. Launch Crossover at least once, then close it.
    
    2. Download PlistEdit Pro from https://www.fatcatsoftware.com/plisteditpro/
    
    3. Open your Home folder: Macintosh HD⁩ ▸ ⁨Users⁩ ▸ ⁨[insert user]
    
    4. Press Command + Shift + G and type:
    library/preferences
    
    4. Open "com.codeweavers.CrossOver.plist" with PlistEdit.
    
    5. Change "FirstRunDate" to sometime in the wayyy future, then save it.
    
    6. Your trial period is extended!

    [​IMG]Game Doesn't Launch![​IMG]
    If you've followed all the steps above, make sure you're on CROSSOVER 20, and if the game still doesn't launch please try:

    [SOLUTION 1] If you crash right after the logo/animations, install the following:
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KsJ7dQ-wcAJ_VD6fF-QHM-op3bf9KH89/view?usp=sharing

    [SOLUTION 2] Open "System Preferences" > "Security & Privacy" > "Privacy" >
    "Full Disk Access" > Add Crossover using the + icon:

    [​IMG]

    [SOLUTION 3] If it does not launch, you have an anti-virus.
    Please follow the instructions here:
    https://www.codeweavers.com/support/wiki/mac/mactutorial/bitdefender

    [SOLUTION 4] Please delete Crossover. Then disable your anti-virus.
    Reinstall Crossover & MapleLegends. Then repeat Solution 1 & 2.

    5. Save the file.

    You can also find a new Install/Nagtime, by installing a program via Crossover (like Notepad++) and then opening up the system.reg for that bottle and finding the newly generated Install/Nagtime. Copy from that file, and paste it into the MapleLegends system.reg! ^^

    Just realised this is already marked as 'unstable on mac', whoops ~
    This is awesome Nise!
    One issue I am running into is the classic 'Failed in finding proper screen mode for Gr2D' error when trying to play the client on the 1366x768 setting. Otherwise 1024x768 works lovely, thank you so much <3

    upload_2021-3-16_11-43-8.png

    That one f3

    EDIT: btw this is running a M1 macbook air, might be the new screens that have unmatching resolutions or w/e.

    This error occurs when your graphic card doesn't support resolution you've set.
    Unfortunately, seems virtual graphic card which set in mac ML client (yes, mac ML client is based on virtual machine, which uses virtual graphic card) doesn't support resolution beside option 1.

    This can be solved when VM graphic card supports 800x600 or 1366x768 in future but this is out of hands of ML staff team. it's on hands of mac developers. let's just hope this issue gets solved asap. :)

    Wish this shines a light for your understanding about issue.

    Thanks a lot for the solution - it seems to work perfectly!

    I was wondering if you know if it is possible to limit the CPU power used on a Mac? Similar to the power plan/settings you can change in Windows where you set a maximum processor state. Or if you can delegate less CPU power to Crossover? My 2020 Macbook Pro gets hot as hell when running Maple

    You could try to disable the following (uncheck it):

    [​IMG]

    It lowers the CPU usage, and should apparently result in smoother frame rate too :eek:

    Hello! I've been trying to install the game on Mac with Crossover, and all went well until I tried to install the game and got an error saying "Runtime Error (at -1:0): Cannot import dll:C:\users\crossover\Temp\isMHK2R.tmp\isskin.dll."

    Does anyone know what this means and how I can fix it? Thanks!

    I'm interested in this, for running more than 4 clients.

    My late 2013 struggles with 4 (sounds like a jet engine and chugs when opening discord)
    So if the M1 actually works with more than 4... I'm all in.

    This drastically lowered the CPU usage for me, to the point where I was smoothly able to run 11 separate MapleLegends clients on my M1 macbook air with 7c GPU and watch a youtube video at the same time. The clients are all 1024x768 and graphics settings on highest.

    upload_2021-3-17_18-6-0.png

    I let the clients sit for longer than it would take for my macbook air (without a fan) to thermal throttle (over 20 mins).
    Just imagine how many 800x600 clients on low graphics settings u could run LOL.

    So; Thank you so so much Nise and ML staff for making this happen, you guys are the best <3

    Also MottoMotto made me post this so blame him
