Hi Rylee,

We’ve identified an issue with the launcher that sometimes prevents Wizard101 from properly loading on a Mac computer. Fortunately, there is a solution for the problem. Just follow these steps:

• Shutdown Wizard101
• Click on the Finder icon
• From the “Go” menu navigate down to “Go to Folder”
• In the field that opens, type: ~/Library
• Click “Go”
• Inside the Library, navigate to: Application Support/Wizard101/Bottles/wizard101/drive_c/users/crossover/Local Settings/Temporary Internet Files/Content.IE5/
• Delete everything you find inside the "Content.IE5" folder
• Launch Wizard101 and log in to play
