Skyrim a bit too frozen...
Posted 2015-05-01 10:38
I managed to get Skyrim running to some extent with a demo of Crossover 13.2. My Mac looks like this:

V 10.6.8
2.93 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4GB 1067 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce 120
VRAM: 256 MB

I didn't have the highest expectations, but I managed to get through the whole "Unbounded" quest on Low settings without trouble, and it didn't look too bad considering the low settings. Now out in the open world however, it only takes a few minutes of running, particularly to a river, for it to irreparably freeze. (I've tried it many times) The music and sound go on as normal, but video is completely frozen. The only way out is to force quit, no error report follows. Is it silly to hope for better results considering my computer specs, or is there a way to fix this and get the game to work better? I got my hopes up after the success of the first quest, now I'm not sure...

P.S. I would have posted this via the "support ticket system" but as I am only trying out crossover with a demo right now I don't seem to have access to that.
