Running MXL on bootcamp

Post by DarthKim on Mon Mar 17, 2014 7:01 am

Apologies if this isn't the right section, but I'm wondering if anyone else here runs MXL on a Mac using Bootcamp (for plugY purposes, obviously). I've been using Parrallels forever and it works fine, but I'm going to be getting a new Mac soon and would prefer to use Bootcamp if possible. I can't think of any reasons off the top of my head as to why it wouldn't work, but I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with this.

it works just fine. but I recommend you running D2 right from Mac OS X using WineSkin (plugy will work too). http://www.medianxl.com/t2629-howto-diablo-2-on-mac-os-x-107

Thanks man. I'll definitely give both methods a shot. Is there a reason why WineSkin is preferred, such as performance issues?

I chose bootcamp over the mac emulator. It just seemed to respond faster.

no need to waste space on windows installation Smile but if you really need windows (e.g. for some specific applications), then probably it'll be better to run from it (also: d2se)
