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?

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?

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.

So far:

 

Half-life will only run in a window, it doesnt detect any video driver so it's small and jerky and performance is generally lousy.

 

Installed Office 2003 -- Word, Excel, Powerpoint all launch and run MUCH FASTER than Office 2004 for Mac (which is running under Rosetta). Can't seem to get them to print though -- if I can get that going, I'll probably dispence with office mac entirely. Outlook isn't supported yet, hopefully will be soon.

I'd like to run latest Office 2007 Beta2 but Windows XP bottle is still a missing feature.

I tried running Trackmania Nations, but i keep getting an error about illegal disc mounting or something like that. Very funny to get that message on a free game.

    • Yup that's fine! Oddly, when rebooting several times it is suddenly gone! Only thing I need to fix is getting 'Headphone' output to work, after sleep. Internal Speakers are working after sleep. I assume to fix this in CodecCommander.kext/ EAPDFix.kext? Anyway thanks for your help!   Yup I have a combo output, so there was something wrong I guess.
    • Nice @yapan4 then we can join forces to make this as good as possible.
    • I had a weird situation, after running great for a while: yesterday I did a reboot and got a KP. Turns out the AstekFusion2Adapter kexts were causing the KP, strange thing is I didn't recall applying any update or a like.  I had to boot with the USB installer, mount the EFI partition to delete the old AstekFusion2Adapter kexts and replaced with the patched version contributed by despeinao. I'm glad the system is working again, not having to reinstall OSX.
    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
      Grazie   Ho creato un configplist , se vuoi provare , dovrebbe essere pulito da ogni impurità , se funziona dovrai adattarli tutte le tue personalizzazioni x il boot ..... config.plist.zip
