Cossacks European Wars for Mac OSX

Game Details:

Welcome to the “Cossacks – European Wars” for Mac game page. This page contains information + tools how to port Cossacks European Wars 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)

Use this CrossTie… to install the GOG game into Crossover
Make sure Crossover is installed before downloading/running the CrossTie. Or use Porting Kit.

Important Note: The F12 key is needed to access the 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.

Game Description:
To stand alone in war is extremely unpleasant. Extremely pleasant, on the other hand, is the stand-alone version Cossacks: Back to War. Containing all of the gameplay features of Cossacks: European Wars and Cossacks: The Art of War, this is a complete care package for all current and future Cossacks fans. This add-on contains 100 captivating missions taking place between the 16th and 18th centuries. In addition, two new nations, Switzerland and Hungary, are included. These countries waged war in the late Middle Ages and essentially influenced the development of European military strategies. This addition causes the second add-on of Cossacks to pass the threshold of allowed gaming fun.
