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.

Video Tutorial: How to use CrossTies in Crossover

Video Tutorial: How to use CrossTies in Crossover

Here the first video Tutorial about Crossover. In this video I gonna demonstrate how to use CrossTie’s in Crossover and how simple this works (matter of opening the Crosstiefile and watch the automater do its work). I used in this video the “Crossover ready” game page of Worms Mayhem which will be the example page of what all pages in the end will look like (only the video in the slider be different of course). The Wineskin Wrapper will still be available though when it’s created already in the past. New game ports will be Crossover tested only.

Steam Wrapper fix

Steam Wrapper fix

I wanted to make a seperate post for a work around for the Steam client issue with the latest update.  Thanks John for the config file tip!

It is possible to stop Steam updating to the latest version. To do this create a text file containing the following text: BootStrapperInhibitAll=Enable
Save the file as ‘Steam.cfg’ and put it in the steam folder of your wrapper doing: rightclick the specific Steam wrapper –> show package content –> c_drive –> navigate to the Steam folder and (re)place the file into the Steam wrapper and then launch Steam.. This needs to be done before you run Steam for the first time. If Steam had already updated itself then use a backup wrapper if you have one. So again this fix will only work if the Steam client isn’t updated yet.

Don’t want to redownload the whole game again? Rightclick wrapper –> show package content –> c_drive –> program files –> Steam –> drag the “SteamApps” folder to the desktop and trash the old wrapper. Then Rightclick the “new” wrapper –> show package content –> c_drive –> program files –> Steam –> drag the “SteamApps” folder into the Steam folder + the steam.cfg file and then launch the wrapper and you should be able to play without re-downloading anything again. We will meanwhile update the Steam wrappers where possible.

Fixed some links…

Fixed some links...

Someone mentiond that the link of Castle of Illusions didn’t work. So I checked, and he was right. I saw zero downloads in the statistics, so I fixed the link I then ran with a quick eye to some of the pages of the links and saw some more links which needed a fix (zero downloads). Below some more of them. So if you run in any link which doesn’t work, simply use the contact form (use the alternate emailadres for now), and sent me an email with the question to fix the link so I can do so.
