    Default Question about the fixes for CrossOver/Wine

    I saw the patch change and was excited that I could finally play Rift on my Mac, however when I patched it I still got the same error that I used to after logging in ("Could not connect to server. Press OK to try again or Cancel to exit.").


    * Resolved incompatibility with CrossOver / Wine.

    What exactly was fixed and why am I not able to play using CrossOver now?

    I'm playing RIFT on my Mac using WINE, and the update this morning fixed it for me. It's working fine other than the mouselook error (which isn't indigenous to WINE users).

    Have you tried using Recover yet?

    I'm on Crossover on my Mac and things are working for me, just make sure you install the updates. (stupid tip I know, but I don't know what else to say)

    Thanks Trion for fixing it for us.

    I've tried reinstalling twice; once with crossover and the other with WINE but neither work. The only time I was able to get Rift playing in the past was when I installed it via the CrossTie on CodeWeavers through CrossoverGames. I suppose I can try reinstalling it again with the CrossTie this time, but I'm going to be so sad if another full day of downloading the patches doesn't work out.

    Does anyone have any tips for installing Rift on a Mac that doesn't involve dualbooting Windows? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Do you have WINEtools installed.

    Nope. Will that help? I haven't heard anything about WINEtools.

    Did 10.6 introduce a full compiler for the average Joe? It's really kick arse if Apple did!

    Default Crossover on Sale till the end of May

    If you're wanting to play without bootcamp and purchasing a copy of windows, Crossover is the way to go.

    the current deal (bundle) gets you crossover standard and crossover games.

    http://www.codeweavers.com/products/bundle/

    The price you pay is the day of the month in May, so today it's $16, and at the end of the month it will be $31. (Regular price for Crossover Games is $40.)

    I have Crossover Games on my Mac Pro,and I'd wait a while. Right now,you have to use the low quality renderer in order to get decent FPS. I'm a little disappointed in the performance. Wait for the developers to make the product better.
