Went through installing Skyrim through Steam using CrossOver on Mac. Installation went okay, steam runs fine, but when trying to run Skyrim, it either boots to a completely grey screen if launching full screen or in windowed mode to a black window, with the intro music playing but no graphics. Tried installing the CrossTie thing, but I saw that AFTER I had done the original installation, so I don't know if that has something to do with it.
Edit: A couple things to add. Using 3.4 Ghz i7 27" iMac, 8GB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB.
Skyrim seems to think I have some ATI 3200 card, whatever that is, rather than my actual card.
Edit 2: Noticed another post mentioning turning shadow to medium. This got the splash screen to work, but no test on the menu screen and trying to start the game by hitting enter twice freezes the entire game.

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.
