    Hi,
    I have a 2.4 GHz Macbook with 4 GB RAM (GMA X3100) and I succesfully installed all the orange box games + CS:S and DOD:S through crossover mac.
    They all run very good in very acceptable video settings but there's still one problem: most of the time CS:S and DOD:S run perfectly but sometimes the games just stops and CrossOver shuts down, or tries to (I usually have to force quit it) an every time I launch those games it tells me to update my drivers but I just get directed to the NVIDIA site

    Is there anyone who can help me with this? Where can I update these drivers... (I only get this update message with CS:S and DOD:S not with Half-Life, Portal of Team Fortress which are newer games)

    I've also set the launch options for CS:S and DOD:S to -dxlevel 70 (could tis be the problem?)

    (I also run CS:S and DOD:S in full screen and the rest in a window... but I don't think this matters really)
