RPG Maker on Your Mac!

in Tips and Tricks

UPDATE: With RPG Maker MV, this workaround will no longer be needed on a Mac. You can learn more about the OS X Native RPG Maker MV HERE.

Unfortunately this is not an announcement for RPG Maker offering a native Mac OS program.

Instead, it’s a fairly inexpensive way to play RPG Maker on your Mac.

RPG Maker VX on a Mac

Using a free program called Virtual Box (https://www.virtualbox.org/) you can run Windows in a window on your mac.

You’ll still need a copy of Windows but these can be obtained fairly cheaply.
It takes maybe half an hour to get everything set up (including installing windows)

This is a great alternative to a paid program which you may have heard of called Parallels.

Once your set up download a free trial here and get to it!

We’d love to hear how this worked for you. Leave us a comment below!

Until Next Time,
