  1. changes made in game don't stay when logged out

    Hi Caladina, Did you copy any of your old EL config files when you moved over to your new Mac? A lot has changed in the years since the last Odie client, and I always recommend Mac folks work from the client-generated config file when switching to my newer build. Aside from that, the behaviour you mention also commonly occurs with folks who use multiple clients (on any platform). If you fall into that group I suggest making (and saving) the config changes when you only have a single client open, or ensuring that the client you make the config changes in is the last client to be closed when you're done playing - that'll prevent your new settings from being overwritten by your old ones
  2. Very sad news, regarding Learner

    I heard the news this morning and I still can't believe it. EL won't be the same without you. RIP my friend.

    Unfortunately 10.14 is the earliest macOS version my builds support. I chose 10.14 as it is the earliest we can target without causing annoying compromises for those running newer versions. 10.14 was also the final macOS to support 32-bit apps, and it seemed like a happy medium between "old" and "new" whereby those used to their older apps would not be left in a position where they had to choose between modern EL and access to those older apps. For a bit of context, 10.14 was released in 2018 and is compatible with nearly any Mac released from 2012 onwards (including a 2015 MBP!). If you drop me a forum PM I'll be happy to discuss the barriers which are preventing you from upgrading. It seems a shame to be stuck on 10.11 (which Apple considers EOL) when you have the ability to run the latest and greatest
  4. 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.
  5. 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).
  6. 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).
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. 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.

  11. 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.
