    I'm going to request someone try Age of Empires 1 and 2, and the Starfleet Command series.

    It's not really a game, but if someone has a copy of 3D Studio Max on hand, please try it...I use it to mod a lot of my games.

    I'm waiting for HL2 to update right now.

    Edit: It played music for about 1 second then crashed and needed a Cmd-Opt-Esc.

    Had some trouble with my Half Life 2 install discs, so I downloaded it. It's taking forever to start, the menu text is readable but messed up, and changing the resolution made it go all kinds of crazy. I'm going to tweak it and see if I can actually get into the game, and maybe get some screenshots.

    I tried Counter strike source and surprisingly got into a game. It crashed each time though after playing less than 2 rounds. It also ran noticeably slower than it does it boot camp. I would guess about 10-15 fps. That 10-15 fps was at full resolution(1440x900) but that is the the same resolution I play in boot camp.

    Now you know how linux users have been feeling for all these years ;)

    anything to do with wine means a drop in resolution (i'd go for 1024x768)

    Also, transgaming are doing a wine port for mac - which will be much better for games . I'd wait for that

    Rollercoaster Tycoon 3
    The Movies
    Black & White 2
    Trackmania : Sunrise

    All do not work. A couple installed but when starting up looked for the cd, that was already in the drive :rolleyes: and came back with protection errors. I assume after the game has installed in Crossover - it can no longer access the drive - so it's a bit pants at the moment...

    It's not so much that it can't access the drive, but that it can't access it to the level required by copy-protection systems.

    oh I see. Then maybe it's fixable. a ray of hope, because in principal it's a great program.

    Well maybe it can't access the drive at all, I'm just guessing here :) but I'm assuming that it mounts the drive as a folder, rather than as a drive.

    When I used to muck around with Wine on Linux I had the same problem with copy protection for my legally bought games - I always installed a no-cd patch, that usually solved the problem...

    Mind you, I only installed a few games like that.

    It's not because you bought the game that can't save wear and tear (plus disc juggling) by installing a no-cd patch.

    a new solution for running pc applications on your mac, without hacing to have windows actually installed.

    So far its very unsucessful as far as games go.
