Hellu :)

I am currently on a MacBook Pro. I play MapleStory using Windows 10 via bootcamp. It's all good, no problem, but I would like MapleStory to be 100% compatible with XOS like some big games, as LeagueOfLegend for example. So I could do stuffs I usually do in my Mac's partition and open MapleStory at the same time.

I am sure you guys already think about it since all this time. So if you guys deffinitely chose to abort the idea, whatever the raison is, like the trouble of getting people who knows how to code in XOS, or to change the huge game's code, could you please let me know in this forum please ? Also, if you guys didn't abort the idea, could I get informed about what's up actually please ?


Thx chu




P.S.: sry for my english, french peeps here.

EDIT: Parallels* and not ''Paraelle''

    You could always run it with Wine. Makes things a whole lot easier then whatever you are doing.

    Hello. What's ''Wine'' ? Is it some programme to run Windows' apps on Mac or something ?

    They're not going to make an OSX-native client. There isn't a large enough portion of players running it to make it worth the time.

    Here are some threads on the matter from the old forums:
    1
    2
    3
    4

    There might be more, but honestly it's after 2 in the morning for me, and I don't really care enough to dig deeply into the mess that is the old forums.

    yes, that's exactly what it is.

    Maplestory uses Windows only resources to run the client, and I dont think they will rebuild/ recode the client and game just to make it compatible with mac.

    The last time I used WIne (years ago) it suffered from visual lag and input lag with whatever game I was using it for on a friends mac laptop, so you might be better off with your current setup, but I havnt used WIne in years (cause I haven't needed to)

    Hello

    This isn't a priority, I understand why you would want this to happen though.
