I just bought the Macbook Pro. My OS is OS X 10.8.2. It has been about 10 years since I've owned a Mac and I'm having trouble finding my EL folder and it's contents.

When I log onto the game, this is where it says my files are:

Your personal settings and logs will be saved in /Users/purplehaze/Library/Application Support/Eternal Lands/main/

This doesn't exist!

Mine is: Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Eternal Lands

But the EL folder is empty...

Did I do something wrong when I downloaded or unzipped the game?

Thank you for any help,
PurpleHaze

The 'Eternal Lands' structure in your personal 'Library/Application Support' should be created at the first start of the client, no matter where you download/unzip the client to, so I doubt that you did anything wrong there.
Maybe the client has problems with 10.8 (unfortunately I can't test that).
You could try to manually create '/Users/purplehaze/Library/Application Support/Eternal Lands/main/', so the client finds the expected structure to save it's files...

In Mac OS 10.7 and above the users Library folder is hidden. But it is easy to access!

In the Finder go to the GO menu
select "Go to Folder ... "
type in "~/library" without the quotes obviously
BOOM, in your Library folder :)

EL settings are in "Application Support" then "Eternal Lands"

Hit me up in game for help

Oh, wow! Sulla, thank you for the advice. I found my logs and the "main" folder I was looking for and, yes, I was running into issues with the "Library" being invisible for some reason. Thank you kindly :)

Anytime. It's just Apple making it harder for folks who don't know what they are doing with the system to muck things up. I don't personally agree with it but I see what they are going for. Happy to help.
