New CrossTies Week 6!

To start with, I created 6 more CrossTies, but they still need to be approved, so they follow coming week. Raoul Koomen and Ian Pickert were again a great help with testing and submitting screenshots and such. If you want to help as well, just install your games you own in Crossover and let me know if it works, when there isn't a CrossTie yet, or if there is, Rank it on the Crossover game page so people know that it works with the latest Crossover version. This is something we all can do and this way we can help each-other :)

So check the Crossties out below and play these amazing games on your Mac! You need Crossover pre-installed in order for the CrossTie to work. Check out Crossover video page or on the game pages how simple CrossTies work! Enjoy!

The Last Express for the Mac!

Today we have a special adventure game for you. An adventure game which is rated 7th in the top 100 best adventure games of all times! And this game is called: The Last Express! For some of you this may sound "Awesome"! For others, it is: "Never heard of this game". Either case it might be worthwhile checking this one out. This because it is one of only a few adventure games played in real-time, among AI-controlled characters with their own goals and means with which to achieve them. Besides that it has an incredible playability with many endings thanks to a complex, adaptive storyline. So if you are up for an adventure challenge, then this one will keep you busy for a while. Get it from GOG.com and install it in Crossover and play! Check out the trailer below to catch a glimpse of the game.

Paris, 1914. The world is on the brink of war and this train could push it over the edge. You are Robert Cath, a young American urgently summoned by your old friend Tyler Whitney to join him aboard the Paris-Constantinople express, departing from the Gare de l'Est on July 24th. Arriving late, you discover something has gone terribly wrong. Now you must untangle a complex web of political intrigue, suspense, romance, and betrayal. Every move you make could bring you closer to the truth or your own demise. Bon voyage!

Patrician 2 for the Mac!

Patrician 3 was already ported for a long while! Now the predesessor Patrician 2 Quest for Power is ported as well. The package is still available on GOG.com and includes: Patrician 1 as well, but that one isn't working properly yet, so for that one we have to wait out some more Wine development. This Strategy game is really cool for the ones who love trade simulators! Some nice features are: A realistic simulation of a complex world comprised of production, transport, trade and consumption, detailed and historically accurate graphics and a mix of genres including trade, economics, sea battles and diplomacy. The game works great using Crossover!

Predecessor to Patrician 3, in the price of just one! Set against the historical backdrop of maritime trade at the time of the Hanseatic League, the Patrician series sees the player take the role of a citizen of a medieval hanseatic town in Northern Europe, between London and Novgorod, with the aim being to rise from the status of an ordinary, unimportant trader to that of a major business tycoon and governor of your hometown. To achieve this goal, the player must gain the respect and recognition of other inhabitants and try to make a profit through maritime trade, the production of goods and the completion of missions. The player can raise his profile by both improving the city and through diplomacy, or by raising money for his treasury by means of piracy and smuggling - but watch out, others want easy money too, so you would do wise to arm your ships!

Space Quest 4+5+6 for the Mac!

For today 3 games in one! About 2 weeks ago we already had King's Quest 4+5+6 and now we have Space Quest 4+5+6! The package is still available on GOG.com and includes: Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers, Space Quest V: The Next Mutation, Space Quest 6: Roger Wilco in The Spinal Frontier. These adventure games were very popular in these days and still very enjoyable to play! I tested all three games and those work great using Crossover! Checkout the exclusive GOG.com trailer of this game pack below!

Experience a blast from the past with three games from the Space Quest series. As Roger Wilco, a heroic janitor, you're up against screwy space aliens with the fate of the universe in your dishpan hands.

Fleet Command for the Mac!

If you love naval simulators, then I have some good news. Fleet Command is now ported and can be played on your Mac using Crossover. The game is available on Gamersgate and tested by Raoul Koomen who is a great help in testing games in Crossover. Fleet Command has some cool features like: Exclusive real-time strategy with cuttingedge, real-world weapons, Complete 3D environment rotates and zooms for intense combat action and Effects modeled in stunning detail- time of day, clouds, rain, differing sea states, ship's wake and pyrotechnics. Enjoy the game!

International waterways become theaters of war when the world's most formidable maritime powers exchange their fatal blows. With entire fleets at your command, you must strategically deploy vessels from every class - frigate to aircraft to nuclear submarine - to maintain the precarious balance of naval power and gain position for the deadly endgame.

Lord Ironfist is dead and the Kingdom is plunged into a vicious civil war by his feuding sons. At stake is the ultimate prize: control of the land and succession of the royal throne.

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion for the Mac!

Guess what? Yes, here is; Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, that's the successor of  Sins of a Solar Empire which I posted a few moments ago. Yup there are some nice games in the pipeline. While I am testing and creating CrossTies of existing game ports, I am testing some new games as well which of course results in some new port  as well :) Watch the original video trailer below to get an impression of the game-play! Enjoy!

While many were hopeful that diplomacy would finally end the war, differing opinions on what should be done, along with the depleted power of the controlling factions, has led to a splintering of the groups involved. The loyalist members of the Trader Emergency Coalition adopt a policy of isolation, focusing on enhanced defenses to ride out the rest of the war. Those who rebel against the coalition take on a purely militant view, coming to the opinion that the only way to bring peace is by ultimately crushing all who oppose them - especially xenos.

Sins of a Solar Empire for the Mac

Space strategy is the focus for today!  We start with Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity .

The game works nicely using Crossover in my tests. If you don't know the game then the trailer below will introduce you with it.

Sins of a Solar Empire is an innovative real-time strategy game featuring seamless transition between epic strategy and tactical combat modes, initiating what is already becoming known as the RT4X sub-genre. A galaxy of intriguing aliens, powerful starships, and colossal planets comes to life with stunning 3D graphics, unparalleled sense of scale, and a cinematic musical score.
