So I recently installed El Capitan on my mac and updated legacy to 2.74 or whatever the latest version is. After I upgraded to Capitan, the old legacy kept crashing intermittently while I played so i figured that might be the cause of my problems, so I installed legacy 2.74. However, I keep crashing still, and usually after only a few minutes of being online. 

anyone know how to fix? 

Also, I don't really get an actual crash/error report from my mac, legacy just seems to close out.

Should allow an etconsole.log to be created in the mod directory so you can see if there are any errors in your log.

ET Legacy is borked on Mac. Only legacy mod servers, i.e. none. I play using Parallels Windows 7. Not ideal. I get smoked on the Hardcore server...probably would happen anyway were I on a PC. I think the  ET Legacy folks are working on a fix, but no go. Can't play regular ET either. Stuck in silly, laggy emulation for me.

I recently purchased a MBA and I am facing the same problems.


The native ET client crashes as soon as it is run. 


The ET: Legacy 2.74 client crashes, or displays 'Unpure client detected. Invalid .pk3 files referenced'


I have resorted to running the Windows client using Play on Mac but gameplay is very choppy despite it showing me consistently running at 90FPS. 


Any ideas?

Hi there :-)


Not much of a solution but I just wanted to say.. I'm having(like many) the same issues while connecting to some F|A ET silent mod servers(for example silent1.clan-fa.com)! Funnily enough if I connect to another F|A ET silent mod server(for example hc.clan-fa.com) I can play without any issues using ET Legacy v2.71rc4 OSX. So I think other than the OSX mod client incompatibility problem maybe the silent server has to be updated too.


There seem to be a few issues with the stable ET Legacy v2.74 OSX version at the moment.


Mac OS X, ET:L crashes when killed on other mods


Crashes after about a of game play.


So I guess we will just have to be patient until version 2.75(or later) is released for OSX :D

I created this reddit post. This will get Wolf ET running on your mac with no noticeable lag, no virtual machine and no bootcamp
