Announcing the 7.0.080415 CrossOver Games build

Hello everyone,

I am pleased to announce the availability of our first unsupported CrossOver Games snapshot. We provide it for customers who want to test the latest and greatest things with their games.

This build has seen very little testing only, so be prepared for issues when using it. We do not promise any support for these builds. If you are seeing any issues, please test with the latest stable and supported release before filing a support ticket. However, you are welcome to post issues in the unsupported builds forum. We will keep an eye on it and try to help when we can, but no guarantees given.

What we are mainly interested in is if a game that used to work with an earlier build breaks in newer builds, or if any of the explicitly mentioned fixes does not work for you. Please report any regression you find in the unsupported build forum.

What is new or fixed in this build:

-> Workaround for the driver bug causing Portal, TF2 and HL2:EP2 to crash on Macs with ATI cards running Leopard

-> A small performance improvement on Macs

-> Better texturing support on ATI radeon 8500-9200 cards

-> Pixel format selection improvements which can improve performance and rendering correctness(Thanks to Roderick Colenbrander)

-> Work on better support for floating point textures for Shader Model 3.0(thanks to Roderick again)

-> Improved support for palettized textures in old games(courtesy of Alexander Dorofeyev)

Cheers, and have fun playing,
