Something I've never had before

Okay this sounds kind of sad, however, I wanted to say that for the first time playing on my mac, I got a connection to mapserver lost. why does this make me happy. Well previously, any time there would be a connection lost to the mapserver, Crossover Games would lock up, or cause my system to lock up! So this is good news to me! Keep up the good work Codeweavers! Don't let the Wine Swiping Transgaming Mac Client get you down! I would rather pay $40 for a platform for all of my games, instead of one for each of my games!

Thanks for all the encouragement! (In the other threads too)

If you have noticed, the current unsupported release should at least fix the problem with the mouse pointer. I made a few other minor fixes, but I forgot what that was.

Now the less encouraging news is that I have given up on the graphics problems and crashes on the Mac. Since CoH uses OpenGL(generally a good thing), it talks directly to MacOS without involvement from CrossOver. This means that if CoH crashes your Mac, only Apple, and maybe NCSoft can fix it :-/

Thus CoH will most likely not be fully functional in CrossOver anytime soon. As such we maybe won't lift it above Honorably Mention status, but I will keep an eye on it and make sure that the functionality we can provide works and keeps working with future releases
(The potential good news is that the CoH maintainers will have to adapt the game for the TG "port", so when they work around all those bugs it will improve things in CrossOver as well)
