Crossover 21 released!

Yes, great news! Crossover 21 has been released! Crossover is an application similar as Porting Kit but then commercial (Paid application) and has a big team of developers and offer paid support for their product. Crossover is a product of Codeweavers which contributes a lot to the Wine project. In short, a great product and ran by very cool guys! :) Crossover is priced 59,- and comes with 12 months of support of updates and phone support. With Promocode “Portingover” you will get 30% off! So take advantage of that code :)

Crossover 21 makes now use of  Wine 6.0 and has loads of improvements and fixes for games and better support for M1 Apple Silicon. It also includes fixes for Ubisoft games like Anno 2070, Rayman Origin/Legends, Assassin Creed series and more! When we created a CX21 Engine for Porting Kit these ports will be fixed and new ones will be added as well!

Check out the full change log below.

21.0.0 CrossOver – August 3, 2021

  • Core Technology Improvements:
    • CrossOver 21 includes Wine 6.0, with 8,300 improvements, and selected patches from recent Wine with benefits to many popular applications.
    • Update to DXVK v 1.7.
    • CrossOver now ships Wine Mono.
  • macOS:
    • Added support for Dark Mode.
    • Vulkan WineD3D backend now on by default for D3D10/11 games.
    • Skyrim SE now runs on m1 with WineD3D.

We are using the opensource code of Crossover to make Wineskin engines to use in Porting Kit. We are working hard to get a working patched engine to Porting Kit to make use of the the new engine as well to use for new specific games and upgrade old ones for fixes and improvements. When we have it finished this will be announced again on the blog. Meanwhile if you want to play with Crossover already, then you can get Crossover 21 from their website.
