I'll like to add if you're running a mac mini, you have a line level input so you need a powered mic or a usb mic.

Boot Camp is a feature of Mac OS X that enables you to boot Windows on your Mac.

It's not difficult to play RO on Mac OS X using CrossOver Games, but the client runs slower (I assume this is due to RO's poor programming because it isn't the case with other games).

It works pretty well for me, I never play RO on Windows ever since I got CrossOver running. I guess it completely differs from computer to computer.

We should do a spec thing

Nvidia 9400m
4gb ram

Tried it again, runs decent. Wouldn't woe with it though.

Runs pretty well, enough for playing daily.

Yesterday, one of CodeWeavers's developers inadvertently discovered a Wine configuration setting that greatly improves RO's graphical performance. I've added instructions for enabling this setting to my guide. :)

I just downloaded the trial version but, once I open Ragnarok it won't finish patching and a pop says a problem has occurred.

It seems to be caused by a bug in CrossOver Games. I don't think it's serious.

Once the crash has occurred, close the updater, complete the installation, upgrade to the new updater by opening the ‘Ragnarok Renewal’ shortcut, then open the ‘Ragnarok’ shortcut to play. :)

Thanks, I got it to work but there isn't any sound. Not a big deal because I never play with sound anyways.
