    Well, I guess it's a bit overdue here, but the next version is actually being worked on. I was going to have a 1.2 about a year ago, but I decided to just skip over that now and jump into 2.0. It will allow unlimited accounts (theoretically, but you don't want that many!). Hopefully some other additions as well. The whole save thing works, but I'm rebuilding the whole file. It's a mess, and done rather poorly in my own opinion. Anyways, maybe check back every couple of weeks to see if a new version pops out.

    Yes, if you dualboot, or run a virtual machine with Windows, it should run fine. I think anything after Windows XP will run it no problem, possibly even XP, but I don't know if the functions called in the file existed on XP or not.

    I ran it on a really old laptop that had a sticker that said "Made for windows XP" on it, though it had been upgraded to windows 7. It actually lagged, surprisingly. Anyway, I've been trying to get windows 10 on my mac, pretty much just to play this game.

    or not l0l. It doesn't exist apparently.

    I watched a video on how to get the equivelant of .bat files to run on mac, but it wasn't helpful. I got stuck when the guy said "Now, here you put your spigot number into the terminal", without explaining how I get that.

    To summarize the article, you need to have Mac operating system 10.10 or higher (I think it's called Yosemite, the newest called Mojave). You need to set the permissions on the file to executable. I think you need an administrator account to do this, but I could be wrong.

    Right click the file, and click "Show Info"
    Under "Permissions" set it to 755

    NOTE: If you are good in you Mac's terminal, you could navigate to the directory containing the file instead, and use the command "chmod 755 Legend.bat" to set permissions.

    To run the file, you NEED to use your terminal as far as I can tell.

    Open terminal
    Navigate to the directory containing Legend.bat (If it is on your desktop, use command "cd ~/Desktop". If it doesn't work, look up how to navigate in the terminal.)
    Type in the command "./Legend.bat" (Note that it is a period, forward slash, and then the name of the file.) This command runs the file.

    I can open it, though. It just opens in textedit. I'm using mac OS x, which I upgraded to from mojave.

    I also have no show info, but I'll try terminal.

    Neither of the files work. It might not even be possible, which is a shame, since I've played a bit of this game on my workplace computer, and I'd like to play more at home, but at home I have a mac.

    It's telling you the file doesn't exist, because you are in the wrong directory in the terminal. chmod will never fail with "No such file or directory" if you are in the right place. It might fail with other things (such as not having permission, or an invalid argument), but not that particular error.

    If you don't see the Legend.bat listed when you enter the command "ls" you need to change your directory to the correct one with "cd"


    UPDATE: It will not run on Mac computers. I went through the steps myself, and it fails on the first line, failing to recognize : as a comment. Because of this, it cannot be used.

    Naturally. It's too bad, I love this game. Just my luck my home computer is a mac. I suppose you could try to make a mac version, but I can't ask you to do all that. If I ever get a new computer, though, I'll make sure I can play this on it!

    I suppose the best I can do now is read it.

    So far progress isn't exported anywhere, and only ONE user can save data. To have multiple users (and keep your data saved):

    Turn on your computer's setting to show hidden files and folders. It's a different process for Mac, Linux, and Windows, but accomplishes the same thing.
    You will see a file named "settings.meow"
    Rename to "settings2.meow" or some other memorable name (such as your user's name). Do not modify the contents or extension, otherwise you might damage the game's functionality.
    Every time a new player is made, a NEW settings.meow file is created. If one already exists, it is simply overwritten. This is why you need to rename any file you want to keep.

    To switch back to an older user:

    Change the name of the current settings.meow as explained above, if you want to keep it
    Rename your old file back to settings.meow, and log in

    This is a pretty cool game, I played it a decent amount. Started in 0.8 and my save game carried over to 1.0, pretty happy about that. Also I really like how each different area has a color scheme, helps it feel like a world
