Well I can give you good news about Crossover Mac for you DVD Shrink fans...

It's a little buggy and you need to select the DVD drive as a folder... but it works!

I just ripped a dvd using it.

edit: ok it's super buggy at the moment. I just tested the ripped files and they are full of artifacts... so strike earlier comment.

:whistle: I noticed that as well. For me it froze during the analysis, but you could see artifacts galore and plenty of green frames. But maybe Alpha 3 will work better. At least I hope so, cause this is the best DVD ripper/encoder out there, and it's free! Who knows, maybe they'll even get the nero plugin working...

I've heard it doesn't feature a list of open processes/applications (such as WineHelper in Darwine), is this true?

Alpha 3 is a big improvement over Alpha 2. I will say that.

In this new one, I've been able to install and run HL2 with about 20FPS. Not too bad, but the fonts ingame are like corrupted..any tips?

I have alpha 3 but I haven't had a chance to play around with it as much as I'd like to.

I used alpha 2 quite a lot and I wrote a mini-review of it, feel free to take a look - http://www.davejeffe...l/crossover-mac

I'm going to test ou a few games with alpha 3 and maybe I'll write another review.

Is there a specific link somewhere to download the beta? I'm on the list (private2), but I can't find a download link anywhere.

Nevermind, found it! Apparently the beta page isn't linked from anywhere on the public site?

I wonder if Cedega will also jump on to the MacOS X ship.

Cedega has already been discussed here somewhere I think, Mac OSX port is called Cider (Apple... Cider... bad joke...)

Aye.. Transgaming is working on something. Sadly it will not be end user and will be licensed to Game Companies instead for porting. Disappointed me, as I've been a paying member of Transgaming since the very beginning.

am using crossover alpha 3 here. works a treat!

very very impressed. previously using parallels and also tried q. this makes those obsolete for me to run winslows stuff.

running office 2003 in crossover is so much quicker than running office 2004 mac through rosetta.

Playing with Alpha 3 of Crossover Mac now. Can't seem to get Quickbooks to run -- it finally installed okay (under Win98 bottle) but won't actually launch.

The good news -- so far -- is that I got steam installed and running, and it at least launches Half-Life (I haven't tried HL2 yet).

!!!!!!!

Can't get HL to run full screen yet, need to figure out how. It runs in a window, looks like 600x800.
