Crossover games 8.1.2. Better support for Lord of the Rings Online on Mac

A while ago I wrote a post about running Lord of the Rings Online on the mac platform using Crossover Games. This post was much visited from people that wanted to find out how to play lotro on the mac which shows that the mac crowd cannot be satisfied by the native WoW boredom.

I still do my Orc-bashing using a mac and I am very happy to say that the performance with the new version is even better. Some glitches like the floating names or the sound in videos belong to the past.

The Shire is more beautiful using a Mac...ok who threw that at me?

The new version of crossover games brings better support for other games as well, such as, the very popular Left 4 Dead (1 and 2). Since, lately I 've been playing a lot of Fallout 3 I decided to give DEFCON a spin just to get in the nuclear-war spirit. Crossover Games performed perfectly and you just could not tell that this was a windows game. Kudos to the codeweavers team...
