I tried running the steam version of gl quake on my mac, and admittedly it runs perfectly at low resolutions, but it fails completely at high resolutions, or in widescreen. I don't want to sound critical or anything as I love crossover, and fully support everything the project stands for, I just disagree with the medal awarded.

Our(CodeWeaver's) rating is untested, and the Advocate's ratings are their decisions. Different ratings often reflect issues that depend on the system, like different graphics drivers or different MacOS versions. Some issues are driver specific problems unfortunately.
I found that the inability to set resolutions the game supposedly supports using the steam version of glquake is also a problem when playing on windows, so in that sense i guess it now deserves a gold. However, the fact that regular quake doesnt' work still makes it a silver in my personal opinion.
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
