    Hi, I just bought a mac book pro yesterday and want to play BFME2 on it, so far i've installed in via crossover, but when i run it i cant get past the start flash page, so it never actually starts up the game. From looking around the web, im sure it is possible to get it to work without using bootcamp
    (which i dont want to use because I have no copy of windows 7, and dont wan't to buy one or risk downloading a dodgy one)

    I read that maybe you have to download a no dvd/cd crack or something?

    anyway i would really appreciate help

    People here will not discuss cracking games etc

    Only thing I cans say that I went the Crossover route sometime back and never ever managed to get anything to run under it, infact I have to say it was the biggest waste of money I have ever spent on a program.

    I soon learn't after also playing around with Parallels that Bootcamp was the way to go with some Windows games.

    I suggest using VMWare or Parallels. I can run BFME2 at full settings in vmware, and then you don't need to reboot. As for Windows 7, I'm sure with the help of tpb you could find a copy.
