  1. I don't care for the rest of the complaining, but this is wholly incorrect. Our most recent release (1.9.5p9) had six unique code contributors, and numerous client testers who provided valuable feedback and bug reports. Client development has never been healthier.
  2. New client update available 1.9.5.p9

    You are right, Revi, the text input behaviour has changed a little since p8. I highlighted this during testing, and it turns out it is an intentional change. The text input area can now expand multiple lines (useful for folks playing with a smaller window/larger font setting).
  3. Those errors seem to be normal for folks running a client with JSON capability for the first time (certain files don't exist yet). The client_state file seems to be created when a JSON capable client is first closed, and testing here without the client_state file isn't causing any crashing (but I do see the same errors as you, as expected).
  4. Login problem after changing password

    I have just put this to the test, and I can confirm that your suspicion appears to be correct. Useful info for those who might stumble across this in future LenSon, as bluap suggested, can you try logging in using ONLY the part of the new pass that was before the space?
  5. login screen Question

    Caladina, sounds like you're looking for the "username" option on line 11 of el.ini. You can find it at the following location: ~/Library/Application Support/Eternal Lands/main/el.ini
  6. A hide and show option alone wouldn't make it possible to re-order those bars, as they'd still display in their pre-determined order when enabled (like elements on the side bar). This is just my view, but I would also suggest that things like health, mana, carry capacity and food level are important base functions of the game and should never have an option to disable them in the UI entirely.

  8. Eternal Lands for macOS - FAQs

    What if I am running a version of macOS older than 10.14 Mojave? If you've been holding out for a version of Eternal Lands which fully supports modern versions of macOS, it is now safe to upgrade. If you can’t (or don’t want to) update to a newer version of macOS, you may have luck with one of Sir_Odie’s older Mac builds which are available here. These builds are not recommended for users with modern versions of macOS due to missing features and incompatibility with newer GateKeeper requirements.

    How do I install custom maps? As of version 1.9.5p8, the macOS client includes the minimal BurnedMaps pack by default, eliminating the need to install it separately. If you'd prefer to use an alternative (such as the full BurnedMaps pack) you may install them at the following path: ~/Library/Application Support/Eternal Lands/updates/1_9_5/maps/<the .dds files go here> Warning: this feature is not officially supported. Mods are not obligated to help if you submit a #help_me request.

    My FPS is lower/My Mac is noisier/How do I disable High Resolution mode? If you’re running an older or lower-end Mac and have noticed reduced performance or increased fan noise, you may want to try disabling High Resolution mode: If you open the game via the Launcher: Untick the Enable High Resolution option. Opening the game via the launcher ignores the "Open in Low Resolution" setting within the Eternal Lands app's get info window (see below). If you open the game via the Eternal Lands app: Navigate to the app in finder and right click on it > Select Get Info > Tick Open in Low Resolution. High Resolution mode will remain permanently disabled when opening the game via the app until you untick Open in Low Resolution again.

    Thank you for the feedback guys, both here and in-game. There'll be a new build (1.9.5p8) likely coming in the next few days with bug fixes from Bluap for some minor HighDPI bugs and the alt+s = ß issue. The next release will also include Burn's minimal map pack by default (thanks, Burn!), and I have been working on a small launcher app to make it easier for Mac users to run multiple clients/access other servers.

    Exactly. Until 10.14 Mojave it was considered best practice to have an app distributed outside the App Store signed and notarised by Apple, and users would receive a dismissible warning when opening the app. As of 10.15 Catalina, the only way to run a non-notarised app is to completely disable various system protections first (bad idea), which makes it necessary for those apps to now be signed and notarised in order to run
  15. Introducing the Eternal Lands client for the Mac! The client is compatible with macOS 10.14 Mojave and onwards, and, as of 1.9.5p9, is built as a universal binary to provide native support for both Intel (x86-64) and Apple Silicon (ARM64) Macs. The client also supports High Resolution mode for Mac users with modern displays. High Resolution mode is automatically detected and enabled for systems which support it, but it does use slightly more resources. If you’d rather forego the beautiful crispness in favour of performance, you can disable High Resolution mode via the method described here. Alongside all of the other modern EL features and functionality, the macOS client also includes the minimal BurnedMaps pack by default, eliminating the need to install it separately. If you'd prefer to use an alternative (such as the full BurnedMaps pack), please follow the instructions here. Moving forwards, updated macOS client builds will be made available with each official client release - keep an eye on the general chat forum or this thread for future updates. Big thank you to Bluap and Grum for all the hard work they do to bring us new features - you guys rock!
