CrossOver Games 8 ships

CodeWeavers has released v8.0.0 of CrossOver Games, its specialized virtualization software. Users can play Windows games inside of Mac OS X, without needing a license for the former. New in the eighth edition is support for Snow Leopard, and tweaks which enable Shader Model 2.0 and 3.0 rendering by default. A memory management problem has been fixed that should eliminate crashes in Team Fortress 2.

The software has also been given support for several more games, most notably Left 4 Dead, Jade Empire and Tales of Monkey Island, the latter in its Steam version. Miscellaneous problems have been addressed in titles like Half-Life 2, Spore, Guild Wars and Civilization IV. CrossOver Games costs $40, and requires an Intel Mac running Mac OS X Tiger or better.
