Star Trek, LOTR bugs repaired in 10.1.10 update
Codeweavers has announced an update to its Windows game emulator for the Mac, CrossOver Games 10.1.10. The software, built on the Wine compatibility layer, allows a Mac -- also Linux -- to install and run Windows game titles in a compatibility mode, without having to run windows or a virtual machine. The update adds Rift support, fixes bugs with Star Trek Online and World of Warcraft and improves the installation for Lord of the Rings Online.
CrossOver Games fixes a bug that was causing launching problems on Steam. CrossTie support is onboard for .rar files and there are improvements for menu and association handling.
The software requires Mac OS X 10.5 and an Intel processor. It costs $40.
