No, not exactly. I want to know what set of applications the devs test against and officially support. The Compatibility Center is just a compilation of community user's experiences. It's helpful, but not what I'm looking for.
Right now the only way I can tell is when I try to install software from within Crossover, if the app happens to be officially supported it will say so on the right hand side of the crossover installation window. But I don't want to have to search; I'm looking for a list of all the supported apps in one place.
This change in thinking came about when we redesigned our website. We took a look at all of our "Supported" applications and all of the applications that our customers and volunteers have ranked "Gold". In many cases we decided that our community was doing a more than adequate job of providing top notch support to the applications they rank and love... and it was not limited to the "Gold" applications.
On top of that, we have long debated whether medal rankings really did the job of relaying the information we wanted to give to our users.
We spent months deliberating. We spent time heatedly debating. And then, we settled into a design that everyone agreed gave more information. It was put into place on October 13, 2015.
With this, there is no "Supported" distinction. No programs are "more blessed" because we run them. They are ranked well because our community (including CodeWeavers) believes in their functionality. That said, your question is unanswered. You want to know what we, CodeWeavers, are testing CrossOver against.
So, how about a list from the Quality Assurance department?
** And we are looking at Access 2013
** We do not yet claim functionality, this is a work in progress
We still look at bugs within Office 2003 but without a strong customer base requesting work, we do not prioritize these bugs.
** Noting that 2016 has new features we need to do work on to gain more functionality
* this application has a Mac native version but still has a large following on both Mac and Linux through CrossOver
* Usually the latest version but sometimes triaging bugs in older versions
World of Warcraft - Linux
Starcraft II - Linux
Guild Wars 2
Hearthstone - Linux
Star Trek Online - Linux
Baseball Mogul 2015
Path of Exile
Euro Truck Simulator 2 (with comparison to native versions)
World of Tanks
World of Warships
Plants vs Zombies (with comparison to native versions)
South Park: Stick of Truth
Planetside 2 (needs more work)
Magic 2015 (needs more work)
We are also testing Steam, Origin, Arc, GOG Galaxy, Big Fish Games Manager, and other game delivery systems (UPlay is starting to work).
Beyond that, we have a library of thousands of games to test with so that if an issue arises we can triage it.
The above is subject to change at any time and if a particular title is getting a lot of attention from the community, we are very likely to add it into our normal round of testing and development. This has happened in the past with games like Star Wars: The Old Republic, SIMS 4, Need for Speed World, and many more. Further, we test against the functionality of development on DirectX 11 and all the components getting implementation work for Office 2013 (like dwrite, direct2d, etc).
When DirectX 11 becomes more functional, we expect our list of games that get tested to change drastically.
The core group of applications like Office programs or Quicken or popular games like World of Warcraft, EVE, Rift will always get our attention if they have trouble but we want it to be clear that we would work on applications outside of that circle.
