  1. 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
  2. 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.

  4. 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
  11. Introducing the brand new 64-bit Eternal Lands client for the Mac! The client is compatible with macOS 10.14 Mojave and onwards (yes, we finally have a client for 10.15 Catalina!), and for the first time ever has been both signed and notarised by Apple to ensure it’ll run without any compromises. This client also introduces a beautiful new High Resolution mode for Mac users with modern displays. High Resolution mode is automatically detected and enabled for systems which support it, but 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. As of 1.9.5p8, 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 Mac builds will be made available regularly alongside those for other platforms where possible - keep an eye on the download link below or the general chat forum for new releases. Big thank you to Bluap for all the hard work he does to bring us new features, and to VinoVeritas for assisting with bugs and testing - you guys rock!

  13. Client not working with Catalina (MacOS 10.15)

    Hello pk_hitman, It won't be long now that 1.9.5p4 has been released for Windows and Linux users. There have been a few issues with code signing (this is now required by Apple for an app to run cleanly without user intervention) as I do not have a developer account, but I'll be looking to get this resolved in the coming week.
  14. Client not working with Catalina (MacOS 10.15)

    Hello Maxine, As of macOS 10.15 (Catalina) Apple has ended support for 32-bit apps, which is why the game has stopped working for you. The good news is that this is an issue we saw coming, and for the last few weeks I have been successfully testing a working 64-bit build of the macOS client. I am currently on the move, but I’d be happy to share the current test client with you when I am next available.
  15. macOS - 64-bit client - help needed

    Resolution issue is fixed, thanks to some genius-level thinking from Revi. It turns out there was a slight change in the way 10.15 handles lower resolution apps and this needed to be specified explicitly in the info.plist file: NSHighResolutionCapable = NO Pending more testing, we provisionally have a working 64-bit client compatible with the upcoming version of macOS
