New stuff in Life

Hi all


Still no new news from Ambrosia. While browsing the thread where the aquaria beta testers hang out until the beta is released, it was mentioned that CodeWeavers have released CrossOver. With it, they made CrossOver Games. CrossOver Games is design specifically for games and for the ones they support, it works perfectly. Now, there is a linux and mac version, so I can test the app. For a long time, some friends of mine have played Guild Wars for some time. Now me, not having the required PC, couldn’t play with them. I went through a tenuous time during last summer because I was trying to duel boot my mac using Boot Camp, so I could play Guild Wars with them. This failed, and the only reason I didn’t blog about this is because I had a back up, so I didn’t lose anything really important. So, when I heard that I might be able to play with them, I immediately downloaded and installed the app. I had an old Guild Wars installer lying around from some experiments with my other, out dated, PC (these didn’t work.) I gave the app the installer, and after hanging around for a bit, it spit out a working version of Guild Wars. I could see the login screen, read the news, even look longingly at the place where I might put in my access code. But no, I didn’t have any access code, so I quit the app. Then I remembered that my friends might have had some demo keys for Guild Wars lying about, so I asked them if they did. They said that they didn’t have any keys, and that they were amazed that I had gotten GW working on my mac. I tried some other apps, but they didn’t work, so, I tried installing Half Life 2. Well, I needed an installer for that, and I didn’t want to go hunting for one, so I gave up that. I also tried the PC version of Aquaria, but that wouldn’t install, so I am back to square two, because I have a way, to play a game, just I don’t have a game. Well, thats all for now, bye!
