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.

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!
Thanks

I downloaded the free version of crossover. Do I need to purchase the full version to be able to play my game?

But if you got it during the celebration "Crossover is free for a day" promotional, then no, you've got the full version (but probably only a year of updates for free).

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!
