Welcome to the “Cossacks – Art of War” for Mac game page. This page contains information + tools how to port Cossacks Art of War (part of the Cossacks Anthology) so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application using Crossover. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then sign up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial. Or use the Porting Kit alternative.
Important stuff: Cd version might not work properly. GOG.com version or GamersGate version supported only! GOG.com version contains the Cossacks Anthology (all 3 Cossacks games)
The F12 key is needed to access the in-game menu and stuff so make sure to set this option (F1-F12) in the system preferences on your Mac. Otherwise when you press F12 you will increase sound. Also when setting the resolution for the game, do not set the same resolution as your Mac, otherwise the F12 will show you the Mac Dashboard instead of the game menu. So set the resolution one fragment lower, for example for iMacs “1600×900” which is high enough. That will keep the F12 function still intact.
