Advice for MAC Users

by various players

The following advice was given by players regarding playing Legends using a MAC. Harlequin Games takes no responsibility for the accuracy of this advice, or the links referred to (especially the google vid!).


I use Virtual Box to emulate a x86 (ie PC) computer. Then you have to actually install a Windows operating system. I used an old copy of Windows XP, that i had lying around

Virtual Box is OPEN SOURCE but developed by Sun Microsystems. So it is pretty good and FREE!!!!

I've never had any problems running LPE or the other user programs developed for Legends, such as ItemLister etc

Hope that helps



I run Win7 in a virtual drive in a program called Parallels ( but it costs $79.00(US) on my MacBook Pro.

There are a few freebie VM's out there you can use as well.

I run the Mono project ( on my Linux desktop (CentOS) which can beat the LPE into submission but it's not as easy.



This might help. Well at least explain the additional problems....


Parallels is an option. You have to provide a Windows operating system, but for LPE it can be an inexpensive one. A cheaper solution is CrossOver, which will run some Windows applications (including LPE) on a Mac. An even-cheaper solution is to run under mono on top of Linux, but if the player had to ask, it's probably a bad idea to try this.

Sorry, I should have provided a link: Crossover ($40 for the stripped-down version, which will do the job) requires an Intel Mac, but that's usually a safe bet.
