Sorry, Mir is only available for Windows

Although, you could run it in a virtual machine on your mac...

Forum user “ shadow “ has been using Mac for ever since to play MIR as far as I know. Maybe he can write some guide.

Download application called Wine
https://wiki.winehq.org/MacOS
> install it (when installing try to make the prefix directory or folder in desktop for easy access, This will be your C:// drive or Windows folder that deals with windows applications)

Download Mir installer
https://www.thelegendofmir.com/Legend_of_Mir2_Install.exe

> install it, This will install the mir game and its patcher in program files in your prefix folder
> wait for the the game to download. if it doesnt happen then go to the mir directory and run Mir.exe with wine.. this will install all files and patches
> Enjoy the game
> in the future when there is an update then you need to go to your mir folder and click on mir.exe, which is the patcher.. once recent updates are downloaded then you can click on Mir2.exe to play... or you can always just use Mir.exe which is also fine.

Goood luck

You can also use another application called Playonmac or install Virtual machine like VMware.. but for me atm Wine is the best option.

Hi redrival,

As shadow stated, Wine is the best way to play on a Mac or Macbook, although i seem to use a different Wine programme to shadow, i use Winebottler -https://winebottler.kronenberg.org/ and download the Stable version - 1.8.6.

Then download Mir, once the installer has downloaded run that using Wine.

Once completed you can open Wine using Applications and clicking the Wine glass, a smaller Wine glass will appear at the top of your Mac near the Wi-Fi indicator. Click on this and open "File Manager", this will open a C drive, click on Program File > Legend of Mir 2 > Run MirPatch.exe, this will update the game to the latest version (use this for future updates). Once the updates completed you can just use Mir2.exe to run the game each time instead of running the patcher.

I had to give special permission to run Wine on the Mac, to do this Open Finder > Applications > Scroll to Wine > Ctrl + Right click > Right Click Open.

Hope this helps, at least you have a couple of Options.


couple of Screenies for visual representation.

Re: [Guide] Mir on Mac

I am currently playing Mir on a Mac using Parallels 16. It allows you to install Windows on macOS. It's easy to install and performance is decent. It is a paid software but has a 14-day trial.

For anyone who purchased an M1 based Mac in late 2020 and onward, Parallels 16 has a technical preview available that allows you to run an ARM based version of Window 10, which can run x86 based software e.g Mir.
