Right, but if it's only to install an app, not running it, it should be enough (I haven't tried GOG installers with Crossover yet). Buy a Windows licence and install it just for that is really time-wasting and expensive
I wouldn't trust CrossOver so far, dude. Admittedly, I needed to run Windows anyway for school, so I got a Windows license for my birthday. The fact I can run my GOG installers WITHOUT having to wonder whether or not CrossOver would actually freaking WORK (isn't that the whole bloody reason we bought Macs in the first place?!) is absolutely the icing on the cake.
I don't understand why you seem so upset about Crossover?... I'm just talking about a way to play GOG games (working on DosBox or ScummVM) without using Windows. You have it, good for you, but it's not the case for every Mac users.
So, I've done Crossover & Boxer test, and it works like a charm:
- Open Crossover -> "Configure" menu / "Install Software"
- When the install is over, quit Crossover
- Find the game folder in :
"*user name*/Application Support/CrossOver/Bottles/*your bottle*/drive_c/Program Files/GOG.com/*your GOG game*"
(or use the "Open C: Drive in Finder" option in Crossover's "Manage Bottles")
- Drag and drop your game folder in Boxer
(It's pretty much the same with a game using ScummVM, you'll just have to configure ScummVM)
Here it's done! and it took only few minutes, without using Windows.
