CrossOver Games for Mac10.3

Play Windows games on your Intel Mac.

What is CrossOver Games for Mac

CrossOver Games has been discontinued & rolled into CrossOver 11

CrossOver Games ... Now gamers can play the games they want, on whatever platform they want! With CrossOver Games, you can run many popular Windows games on your Intel OS X Mac or Linux PC. Whatever your tastes... first-person shooters, fantasy, strategy, MMORPGs... CrossOver Games provides the capability to run many popular games titles. CrossOver comes with an easy to use, single click interface, which makes installing your games simple and fast. Once installed, your game integrates seamlessly into your Desktop. Just click and run! Best of all, you do it all easily and affordably, without needing a Microsoft operating system license.

CrossOver Games is built on the latest versions of Wine, based on contributions from both CodeWeavers and the open-source Wine community, and then lovingly hand-crafted by Stefan Dösinger, our very own Wine/Games connoisseur. Unlike other CrossOver products, which are aimed primarily at office productivity applications (and hence maximum stability), CrossOver Games aims to bring you the latest, greatest, bleeding edge improvements in Wine technology. This means that the newest games run faster and better under CrossOver than under other versions of CrossOver, or other version of free Wine, for that matter. You want to run your Mom's knitting software? Maybe you should look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you need better framerates on Linux or Mac so you can frag your buddies: check out CrossOver Games!

What's new in CrossOver Games

Version 10.3:
  • Fixes for Skyrim on Linux.
  • Patch fixes for World of Warcraft.

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.)

”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

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.

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.

My late 2008 MBP has never had a kernel panic until today, attempting to run Darwinia through Steam on the CrossOver Games demo. Shan't be using it again. Had better luck with wine on Macports.

It is overall pretty impressive when things works. However the it is too pricy because it is a subscription based structure. 40 dollars per year is very expensive compared to even buying a copy of Window XP or 7. They should allow 40 dollars to last at least two years or free updates between major upgrades.

I like the ability to play Windows based gamed through CrossOver Games. Guild Wars works great! There are a lot of options to configure (and to make a game work). However there is a downside, if you want updates at first it isn't a problem but you have a problem after a year. No matter what version you have (8.0.0) you won't be able to get 8.1.0 because you have to pay the 32 euro (more in dollar) to get updates for 12 months again. That way it's becoming pretty expensive to play a couple of games (Boot Camp is way cheaper and way more stable). They should allow free updates until a major update comes. Overall the program is fair and pretty stable for the supported games.

Its an awesome program wich makes (in every newer version) more and more pcgames work on Linux and Mac. If the game you like is not on the compatibility page, it doenst mean it doenst run. Just test it, and if it doenst work somehow, submit the game in the database and put a thread in the forum wich problem you encouter and maybe advocates (like me) or staff members can help to get the game work after all. Just visit the site and have a look.

I'd basically wanted the orange box since it came out. After humming and haaing about this for months I decided to give it a whirl thinking nah it won't work like it says, there will be a catch. We'll I played the HL2 demo on steam and was fully blown away, everything looked beautifully rendered, I then purchased the orange box off steam and everything worked perfectly and doesn't mean I have to reboot into vista. Sure there is the odd glitch on occasion but it really is amazing how well this works, it's not a gimmick, it's for real. A great way to get fantastic games that us mac users miss out on.

I have been using CrossOver Mac 6.2.1 on my C2D Blackbook and had mixed results playing Steam games. After installing Crossover Games and creating a symlink to my old CrossOver Mac bottle, I fired up Steam and was really pleased. All of the graphical glitches I experienced in Team Fortress 2 are gone and the frame rate and load times are both noticably improved. I wish this had been out back when I bought CrossOver Mac because I got it for gaming back then! Thankfully this is FREE if you are already a CrossOver Mac owner. Thanks, Codeweavers!
