CodeWeavers launches CrossOver 9.1, CrossOver Games 9.1

updated 03:00 am EDT, Thu July 29, 2010

New support for StarCraft II, Call of Duty

CodeWeavers has launched CrossOver and CrossOver Games 9.1, new versions of its Mac virtualization software. CrossOver allows users to run Windows programs inside Mac OS X, while CrossOver Games specializes in running a range of Windows based Games on an Intel Mac. One of the main new features for both programs is the incorporation of changes made in Wine 1.2, which include support for 62-bit applications, over 3,000 bug fixes, and more than 23,000 changes.

New features in CrossOver 9.1 include improved installation of Office 2007 service packs, as well as greater print to PDF capabilities, and new minor enhancements to both Internet Explorer 6 and 7. Additional improvements have also been made to proxy handling on the Gnome desktop, and for connection issues with Quicken 2010. A wide range of bug fixes have also been included, which deal with full-screen support for Macs and document saving in Publisher 2003.

Aside from the improvements and fixes the upgrade extends its localization support to now include Dutch and French languages.

CrossOver Games 9.1 delivers additional support for several new games including Star Trek Online, StarCraft II, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and Alien Swarm. It also provides several application profile tune-ups, and a series of bug fixes that range from installation issues with EVE online and to problems in FlatOut 2, Stranded 2, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Finally, support has been added for the Microsoft HTML Rendering Engine 7 package.

CrossOver and CrossOver Games require Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and are priced at $40 each. A Pro edition of CrossOver is also available for $70, and includes a copy of CrossOver Games.

    "...which include support for 62-bit applications". You mean 64-bit, right?

    Meh.

    1. Why bother with EVE Online it's already Mac native.

    2. Why bother with EVE Online? Snoozefest.

    3. Steam is now Mac native. Take the $70 bucks and go buy games on Steam.

    Better yet. Get an XBOX 360 and get a ton of games on a great system (And this coming froma die-hard Mac user.)

    Correction

    CrossOver is not virtualization software. It's Windows emulation software.

    Re: Meh

    Except all games on Steam are not available for the Mac.

    And if you've already spent $1500 on a computer, why should you need to go out and spend another $500 on a game device?
