Installing on macOS
Installing XLink Kai on an Apple computer is a straight forward process with a few requirements:
- A user account with Administrator rights
- ~20MB of HDD space
- An internet connection. A wired network is preferred for stable gameplay. Using a cell phone hotspot is extremely discouraged.
- A Supported Network Setup. Your computer can NOT be fully wireless!
Some of these steps may be specific to macOS 10.15 Catalina but the general process should be the same for previous versions of macOS/Mac OSX
This guide assumes you have already signed up for an XLink account and have completed the registration and consent process.
