Version 10.3

I could be wrong, since I don't use it... but isn't CrossOver Games for, say... games?


They have two diff products, one optimized for games, and then regular Crossover. I believe you are looking for the other one.

Okay. Was able to get some games going--others not. Different versions of a game may or may not run even if that title is supposed to. Got maybe 50% working well, without any glitches. Very simple to use--give it high marks for that.

Definitely good for extracting DOS from the GOG.com games. GIve the Crossover demo a whirl there...

The support is strange and user-unfriendly, the way they time-limit you and put restrictions on your upgrades after a while. And individual game "forums" are all separately boxed in, so there is no sense of community and questions go a long time before being answered.

CrossOver is by no means perfect, but it's an excellent way to get a lot of titles from GoodOldGames (GOG.com) working in perfect order. I've made a GOGmix with games that I've gotten to work on OS X through CrossOver Games here: http://www.gog.com/en/mix/mac_friendly_gog_games_4

(Disclosure: I've been a long-term active member of the GOG community, and I'm also a CodeWeavers beta tester/advocate.)

100% agree! I find that at least some of the GOG games are running in DOSBox under CrossOver, and in those cases, it might make more sense to run the Mac version of DOSBox, but for early - to fairly-recent Windows games that haven't been ported on Steam, CrossOver beats having to fire up VMware or Parallels.


Thank you for that suggestion. It finally brought The Last Express back to my Intel-Mac!!!

Bioshock is available for Mac native...


Bioshock is very much overrated.


I don't know. Just finished it on the Mac native version and I thought it was revolutionary for its time.

”Added StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty as a supported game.”

That's a bit ironic since you can just install the Mac version of the game which you also get when you buy it. I know the Windows version is running a bit better at the moment, but can't imagine it's so much better that it pays oft to run it via CrossOver Games. :P

That is if you use CXG in a Mac but CrossOver has a version also for Linux systems, that's why they add as supported games many games that have Mac version. The thing is, i don't know why they show us the Linux specific fixes and updates, when Macupdate is know by its Mac app database.

As long as this isn't supporting Battlefield Bad Company 2 with Gold Status there's no reason for me to get it.

Please, accept defeat and give up now!

Absolutely none of the games I would like to play without resorting to a BootCamp restart are supported by CrossOver Games.

With Steam for Mac arriving in May 2010 all my Steam purchased PC games that have been re-coded will run directly in OS X.

You did your best. Like Cider, it just wasn't good enough.

Keep the project going if you feel strongly about it, but stop duping hopeful people into thinking they can experience Windows-Free PC coded gaming within Mac OSX. They can't, they really can't.

I think you're wrong here. There are lots of titles available for PC that you just can't get on a Mac. I usually recommend installing PC games on a Boot Camp partition but my internal drive on my iMac went south so, until I can get that replaced (it's not easy or inexpensive) Crossover Games is pretty great. :)

This is intended to be an interim beta release specifically targeted at people using Steam - the new WebKit-based Steam UI does *not* work on CXG 8.1.4 - the 9.0 beta is supposed to fix this. This is an *unsupported release* and was never meant to be posted to MacUpdate.

An excellent port of Wine: a must-have app for intel Macs! I play many unsupported games very well!
