DOS games works great in Crossover!

DOS games works great in Crossover!

Another cool thing about Crossover I found out in  Crossover is DOS games! Where I coulnd’t figure out in Winesskin to make those games work and used Boxer Instead, you can run the games simple as that in Crossover. I haven’t tested all DOS games of course, but the ones I tested from GOG.com are working great! The cool thing is, after installation Crossover will nicely add the shortcuts to the Crossover menu and you can simply launch the game from the menu or make an “alias’ and move it to your game folder to launch it from there! So I will add some more DOS games coming time as well! As a start I added 2 new DOS port tonight: Jagged Alliance Deadly Games and Torins Passage!

The links below are links to the Game pages which include the direct-links to the CrossTies on Crossover. Crossover needs to be pre-installed in order for those CrossTies to work. Check out this video how simple CrossTies work! Enjoy!

Shadowrun Returns released for the Mac!

I promised yesterday a new port, but I am a bit behind because all the crosstie making stuff. changing pages, cunsulting with codeweavers, doing bug reports, arranging stuff on the  Crossover website, and so on. So tonight I am planning to do the port + adding some new created Ties as well. Thanks for the heads up!

The year is 2054. Magic has returned to the world, awakening powerful creatures of myth and legend. Technology merges with flesh and consciousness. Elves, trolls, orks and dwarves walk among us, while ruthless corporations bleed the world dry. You are a shadowrunner – a mercenary living on the fringes of society, in the shadows of massive corporate arcologies, surviving day-by-day on skill and instinct alone. When the powerful or the desperate need a job done, you get it done… by any means necessary. This game  is now available for Mac on GOG.com. Simply buy the Mac game from GOG.com and download and play. Check out the trailer below for the gameplay.

In the urban sprawl of the Seattle metroplex, the search for a mysterious killer sets you on a trail that leads from the darkest slums to the city’s most powerful megacorps. You will need to tread carefully, enlist the aid of other runners, and master powerful forces of technology and magic in order to emerge from the shadows of Seattle unscathed. The unique cyberpunk-meets-fantasy world of Shadowrun has gained a huge cult following since its creation nearly 25 years ago. Now, creator Jordan Weisman returns to the world of Shadowrun, modernizing this classic game setting as a single player, turn-based tactical RPG.

Standard video tutorial about: How to install GOG.com games into Crossover using CrossTies.

This video will become the standard video for installing GOG.com games into Crossover using the CrossTie files. This, because all GOG.com installations are basicly the same and will save me a lot of time making videos. This video will be put into the sliders on all the game pages with GOG.com games, if of course there is a CrossTie available for that specific game. Through time this will grow fast in number. I used in the video the CrossTie I created for Rollercoaster Tycoon 2. The tutorial also includes some tips about Crossover itself. Like how to make shortcuts of the games on the desktop or your game folder. Enjoy the video below!
