Hello! I'm new to Crossover. I have a 2021 Macbook Pro - so it has a M1 processor - and currently I am trying to get Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars to run.
I have actually been going back and forth on the Youtube comments of a nice guy who made a video about getting this game to run with Crossover on MacOS (though not specifically M1, I don't think). You can see what he suggested and what I tried there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPqfao_DLiY
In short, I tried installing Direct X for Modern Games in my Steam bottle, then installed and ran the game. But it gives me the error: "Please make sure you have DirectX 9.0 or higher installed. Also verify that your video card meets the minimum requirements, and that you do not have hardware acceleration disabled in the Display control panel." It gave me that same error before I tried installing Direct X for Modern Game, by the way.
I can't access the link you provide, but I think I know what's going on. We've seen this error with other Command and Conquer games on the new M1 MacBook Pros, and the issue is that the builtin display of the new MBPs does not support the default resolution of the game. Others have reported that using an external monitor worked for them to get around this issue.
We are investigating a solution on our end, but it would be quite involved, so I can't offer a timeline for when we might be able to offer a fix.
Thanks so much to both of you for the reply! I will try your suggestion, Israel, sometime today.
Regarding the nice guy's Youtube video on the subject, I'm surprised that's not working but apparently his account just got terminated sometime since my initial post. "This video is no longer available because the YouTube account associated with this video has been terminated." Huh!
Hello, I just wanted to chime in that I did get it to work with an external display, so thank you for the suggestion, Meredith! It was not extremely straightforward and a little bit finicky though. I can explain in more detail later.
I tried a few different resolutions using "launch options" as Israel suggested ("-xres 2560 -yres 1600" etc.), but no luck. Behavior was the same as without them.
Thanks to all who chimed in.

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
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.
