Running League Organizer on a Mac

Leagues are running League Organizer on Macintosh computers, but they are running it in Windows emulation. Here's how.

Intel-based Macs

Because newer Macs use Intel processors, they can run Windows and Windows applications as quickly as other PCs. Several different methods are available for running Windows on Intel Macs. To dual-boot between OS X and Windows, you can use Apple's Boot Camp which is included in Max OS X Snow Leopard. This approach provides the most compatibility with Windows software and peripherals, but it does not allow you to run Windows and Mac OS X applications at the same time. It requires you to purchase and install a copy of 32 bit Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or later.

A second method is to run Windows in a virtual machine within OS X. Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, and VirtualBox use this method, and although they don't support as much Windows functionality as a dual-boot configuration, they allow you to run Mac and Windows applications concurrently. Again you must also purchase Windows.

PowerPC-based Macs

To run Windows and Windows programs on a Mac with a PowerPC chip, install hardware emulation software. Hardware emulation works by mimicking hardware within an application. When you run a PC program in the emulation environment, the software intercepts commands and translates them into code your computer understands. In this way, you can run many PC applications and, with some programs, even multiple PC operating systems (e.g., Windows XP, Linux). Unfortunately, the speed will be much slower than on a PC or a Mac with an Intel chip. Following are examples of hardware emulation software:
