I was wondering, will Guildwars 2 be supported too when it comes
And who wants it to be? I do for sure! I bought it to finish some
things in Guildwars 1, but i'm really hoping Crossover Games will be
compatible with GW2 too!
Alright, time for the candid answer for games that are not out but we love the idea of.
Until Guild Wars 2 comes out, we cannot say for certain. There will likely be last minute changes and even a fully working beta cannot guarantee a game will work when it's released.
That said, we have a high interest both at CodeWeavers and among our customer base that we are well aware of. When Guild Wars 2 is released, we will play it tho.... test it thoroughly to determine if it is a game we can offer support for. If we can at that time, we'll make an announcement.
My apologies for not having a more clear cut answer, but that's the best I've got!
Good reply, given the limited info :) I also will be "testing it thoroughly" hehehe, I would imagine however that once it is at beta stage the engine will be pretty much set and game play / map glitches and server loading will be the main focus. (that is if the past betas are anything to go by)
So I'm hoping CodeWeavers can begin testing during the beta stage
that is upcoming? If so, that would be nice.
They just announced a pre-purchase date and there is quite the buzz that some time this month they will open up more beta testing to get as many people to try it as they can. We certainly have high hopes to get our hands on it and test it a bit within CrossOver. Of course, if we do we would then be bound by NDA and could not actually talk about it.
Another point to remember... there have been other games whose gameplay worked exceptionally well in beta but when they were released their security was not compatible with Wine & thus CrossOver. Generally the Wine community comes together when this happens and works hard toward a solution. I just want to keep expectations realistic, we cannot actually add support for a game unless it works with CrossOver after it is released and even that has caveats.
This all from the person who can hardly sit still at the prospect of this game
preordered last week. aparently there is a "stress test" next weekend from what I've read, so I'll see what I can do. my decent machine is "out of service" for the time being, so I will test on my underpowered laptop. I still havn't heard any news direct from arenanet tho :(

Well the beta file is out there but so far I haven't been able to get it to work. Same goes for the earlier versions of the beta file (which I also had). It keeps loading new updates but just doesn't move from this 0% on the bar. Not sure if it is because the weekend hasn't started or just that they block these updating proces for some reason.
Anyone got anymore feed back from the public beta weekend? I know the dev's here are working hard to make it run on crossover but I wondered if anyone had any success getting in and what your views were?
Note: Scratch that I've just searched and found some posts sorry :P

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.
