Our BetterTester program is now open!

Welcome to 2024! We are excited to announce some changes to the BetterTester program that will benefit both current and potential testers.

First up, the BetterTester program has reopened! We closed the program down several months ago because we had the very good problem of being overwhelmed with an influx of people eager to test CrossOver. Since CrossOver 24 is right around the corner, we are now eager to accept new BetterTesters that will help ensure this release is absolutely perfect.

Second, we have changed eligibility for the BetterTester program: the program is now open to anyone with an active CrossOver license. We will no longer be culling people who do not earn sufficient XP every 6 months; instead, we will be removing people with lapsed licenses who have not reached BetterTester level 6 or higher.

Our team has found that we’re getting the most valuable information from BetterTesters who actually use our product enough to justify purchasing it, and that frequency of testing is a less helpful metric. We appreciate all of the feedback we have received on our eligibility requirements, and we appreciate your patience as we have worked through trial and error to find a balance that ensures we have the most engaged and empowered band of testers possible.

Third, more XP! We thought that the XP for submitting rankings and CrossTie updates was too low, and we want to make sure that our BetterTesters are awarded for their efforts! Leaving a rank and rank comment now earn you 15 XP each, and updating a CrossTie now earns you 50 XP.

Thank you for all your support and testing. Looking forward to CrossOver 24 and beyond!

Happy New Year, and thank you for the wonderful news!

How should I proceed with the application request for CrossOver?

Best regards.


Hi folks! You can sign up here:

Brava! Thank you for updating the policy. Go Codeweavers! I'm psyched for v.24!

what is supposed to come in crossover 24 ?
if we knew a bit more about it, we could keep an eye for specific functionalities being added, the way they'd behave and the quirks they might have while codeweaver is working through the various beta until the final build.
that might help orientating our reports.


Just signed up! Any info on when the beta 24 will start?

Hello, Friends!
I 'm looking foward to CrossOver 24 with new improvements soon. I'll love this!
