    Hey, I'm on an intel-based Macbook with Tiger.
    I really want to play Maplestory, I've used bootcamp when it was in beta testing, It worked well and I'd do it again but I'm worried about virus'.
    I've also tried VMware Fusion, which took a lot of time and did not end up doing what I wanted it to do.

    So I used Darwine to create a copy of the Maplestory client that I would be able to open, Darwine created a .lnk file which I tried to open with Codeweaver's CrossOver Games. But my free trial has epired and I don't really want to pay for it.

    Are there any alternatives to crossover for a mac?
    Can I get a version of bootcamp without having to buy leopard?

    Or is my only option to buy leopard and use bootcamp.. or simply live without Maplestory xD

    All suggestions appreciated!
    Thank you! xx

    You could try Wine... But CrossOver/BootCamp are the best options for gaming. Fusion can't handle anything graphical.
