Games on a mac…

Yes, I know it’s wrong, and that I should be using Boot Camp to boot into Windows. But, I can’t, because I don’t have Leopard.

I got a free copy of Crossover Games from their giveaway last month, and I’ve only just got around to using it. Or, trying to use it. I’ve successfully installed Steam, and downloaded and installed Counter-Strike. I can’t seem to get it working properly though, it will just show a black screen when I try and join a game. I’ll have another tweak with it, and have a go with some other games. Otherwise, I’ll have to shell out for Leopard and make myself an nLited install of XP.

I’m running short of hard drive space, too. My Macbook Pro is pretty much out of space, and my main PC is running short. Have to get some more drives pretty soon.

While I’m on the subject of games…you have to have been living under a rock if you haven’t heard of Left4Dead. I haven’t got around to buying the full game yet, but the demo had me sold within 10 minutes. The gameplay is so addictive, and it seems to have a really high replay value too.

Just as I was writing this post, I managed to get Audiosurf working under Crossover, so maybe not all hope is lost.

Thanks for the mention, Will--much appreciated. We're working on Left4Dead under CrossOver as well, but it's not all the way there yet.

Best Wishes,
