If I tried to install all that on my mac (seems max ports makes that possible) would there be anyway to get that working with CrossOver? I kind of fear that answer is going to be no as Quartz is going to lock me down to a lower version, which is why I am asking before I sink any more time into this.
Theoretically, it is possible to compile xQuartz with the newest version of Mesa and get this to work, but I've been unable to get it compiled unfortunately. And then, I'm not sure how to integrate that into Crossover, given that they don't use the X windowing system on macOS.
Interesting. CorssOver installs its own copy of Quartz, so maybe all that would need to be done is install it over the top of that. Would really like to know if anyone has had success doing that before I go down that road though.

Yes and no. It might help with a native Mac app, but I don't know how it could be integrated with CrossOver. Where as if I follow what I was looking at doing above, it might be that replacing quartz with a custom compiled version it might be enough. I was hoping to find someone that had tried with success before I sink time into it.

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.
