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!

New About Page: “About Crossover”

There might be some confusion about the program Crossover. So I made an about page of this program which will explain the basics of the program. There you will find answers about: What it is, what advantages it has, what CrossTies are and how to obtain it.

Hope it will shine a light about the program and gives you insight about what it is. Remember that there will be a lot of  crossties and video tutorials coming up which will make your life very easy about Mac porting using Crossover.
