Mac OSX
 
Hi - I was recently invited to Beta Test LoL. After downloading it, the exe. file will not open. Is this game able to run on Mac OSX? If so, what am I doing wrong? If not, why was I invited to Beta Test when I put that I own a Mac in the Beta signup profile?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you.


Specs:
iMac:
2.66GHz intel core 2 duo
2GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro.
Mac OS X 10.5.7

.exe is a windows format and you can't install it on macintosh.

There are 2 solutions for you:

1) Install windows on a bootcamp partition

2) install http://www.codeweavers.com/products/cxgames/ and you can install it on a virtual windows.

Or like many others including me hope they will launch a macintosh compatible client soon.

It takes a while to download and then install updates, but trust me; it's worth it.
Enjoy!

Could someone repost to multiple DL links, this one has "had too much usage and is currently blocked"

I'm scared of clicking on random links that don't seem to have any real basis for existing. Why hasn't Riot said anything if this exists?

right come on guys we need answers.

There are two separate testing systems.

There's a Test Server (not really beta anymore) that runs on the PC and tests new updates to the game. To get an invite here you would have had to message Shurelia for a PTR invite.

There's also a Mac Beta test which is a beta macintosh client for the live server. To get an invite here you would have had to post in the mac forum and then downloaded the .dmg file given to beta testers.

I know this is a difficult question to answer, but is there any way someone from Riot can give us a reasonable range of dates to expect a fully functional mac client?

I just started playing on my friends PC, and I find myself checking nearly every day for news about a mac client. I've had trouble installing boot camp on my mac because my optical drive is toast. I'm just wondering if I should wait it out or suck it up and really figure out how to get boot camp going.

I don't know, I read somewhere that it was supposed to be released in fall. Now, I'm starting to think that it might not even happen. I don't even see any recent news updates regarding when it would be released, or how the results from the beta testing went. However, I'm hoping that they'll release it soon. I'm at home for winter break, and I'm tired of playing on my crappy house PC.

ugh.
