    Indeed thanks for sharing @SecondSky@SecondSky ! Really glad to hear your setup is performing well, and also its caveats.

    This is a wonderful guide, but unfortunately I'm running into the exact same problem that @peachr@peachr is having. I'm able to log on but as soon as I select my character, the game freezes. I've run through the steps and redownloaded MapleSaga.exe many times, so I'm fairly certain that I'm following the directions correctly. Saga works fine on my Windows running on Parallels. I'm running Big Sur 11.1.

    I've tried:
    • running Saga with logs turned on in Crossover, but the logs don't seem to have anything meaningful in it around the freeze
    • enabling full disk access for Crossover
    • turning Firewall off
    There are numerous other "Game Freezes During Character Selection" issues on past Saga posts, but none of those talk about the actual causes and the only solution prescribed was to "redownload the game".

    Anything I can do to debug this? I'm puzzled at why I'm able to log on but not select my character. I would assume I'm not dealing with network / firewall issues since I'm at least able to log on.

    Hey @DavidNL@DavidNL ,

    I'm equally perplexed as well. My options to debug these issues are as limited as yours, but it's good to know that there are multiple occurrences of the same issue.

    Curious, does your MapleSaga application status still show "running" even during the freeze?

    We can open up the task manager to inspect that:

    It says "Not Responding".

    Hmm, I would try to "Simulate Reboot" on the bottle, but no guarantee that this would resolve the issue. It's the icon right next to the task manager.

    Hey guys, I had the character selection freeze issue.
    Got it fixed by re-enabling Performance Enhanced Graphics.
    Try it out!

    Great pointer @jtuff@jtuff !

    Tips to disable "disable performance enhanced graphics" :eek:

    I'll insert a disclaimer under that section.
