Everquest: The Newbie Zone FAQ Frequently Asked Questions about Everquest

Will this game run on a Mini Mac ?

Rating: +0

Positive Negative

Any Mac Mini will run Everquest for Macintosh without problems.

There are many different models of Mac Mini, going back to PowerPC chipset versions. This answer mainly applies to a new Mac Mini. If you want to run the standard Everquest (for Windows), then it will run via Boot Camp, where the Mac Mini is running Windows directly. However, older models may struggle with the graphics, as it uses a relatively underpowered graphics chipset. In theory you can run Everquest in a Windows virtual machine under MacOS X, but I guarantee that it will be unplayable in practice.

You can also run Everquest on a Mac under WINE; I use CrossOver, which is a commercially supported build of WINE. I use an iMac for this, but it should run better on a Mac Mini than under a VM.
