Eternal Lands for macOS - Download here!

Recommended Posts

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!

Since the new MacOS its like jumping through a lot of hoops to get an unsigned Program running. People get several times Warnings that its unsafe to do so, and the buttons for continued running are hidden. To discourage people without deeper knowledge of an Operating System to not start it.

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 :)

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.
