Alright, so I succesfully installed Crossover for Mac. Then I sucessfully installed Steam on Crossover. But, whenever I open one of my games in my account, the screen goes black. I can still hear the Counter Strike menu clicking when I move my mouse, so it's probably a graphics issue. Here are some screenshots:


Steam!

BLACKNESS!!

I don't know that crossover is that powerful a program to run CS on a mac.
Try it on bootcamp.

Is it supported officially on Crossover. For unsupported products it acts weirdly since the OS functions used by it might not be emulated by crossover. So check that out....

Even if Steam is supported on Crossover, the actual games might not be. Personally I don't think Crossover is made with games in mind, and afaik it doesn't support DirectX.

Counter Strike 1.6 IS on their supported games list, and many of my friends who use Macintosh have been able to get it to work. I would rather not purchase Windows XP for Boot Camp, seeing as it costs $100+.

You may get lucky enough that someone here is using Crossover to run this particular game, but you'll more than likely get much better support in their forums.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
