I've installed Guild Wars with CrossOver and everything works fine except some flashy white things appearing frequently while playing. i suspect it might be some graphic issues but i dont want to do anything because i'm fairly new to "mac world".

Any ideas on how to solve this issue?

LOL no... i play Guild Wars for about 3 years i guess, so i know the game very well. The flashy things are graphic problems in my opinion but i dont know how to solve them.

I wouldn't recommend Crossover, it slows down games and makes games really buggy
I would highly recommend using Boot camp, which makes games play flawlessly

I've not played Guild Wars myself, so I can't be of much help. You could try tweaking various graphics options in the game itself just to narrow down the problem. You'd also be best off looking over the Guild War forum on Codeweaver's website. You'll be more likely to find someone who can help. Guild Wars is a supported game under Crossover, so you could also open up a support ticket about it.

BTW... which version of Crossover are you using? Crossover Games 7.1.1 is the latest and greatest.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

I'm running 7.0.2. I've already tweak the graphics but it's the same. Any chance of directX problem? And if so is there a way to install it?

Crossover already has the components for dx8 and dx9 built-in. Reading over the forums, it seems Guild Wars is a little buggy with dx9 under Crossover. You may want to try forcing it to use dx8. See the Tips and Tricks section of the GW forum on Codeweaver's site for instructions on how to do that, among other things to try.
