I feel your pain. The new download page is just pending a push to the webserver. There's a new installer being worked on that's fully automated. Help is coming at a glacial pace sometimes.

Sorry folks, tried all morning to install through Crossover, and all I ever get when trying to run it is an error saying there isn't a windows app to run this program, I'm not sure I want to spend my whole time to never get it to run.

I tried this over a year ago, maybe more, but It won't run on my mac with crossover, the wine bottles and all that. When it starts, the icon shows up in the tray for about 10 seconds, then drops away.

Sorry rant.... This is almost a cruel joke.. download XQuartz, download crossover, run this, run that, download RoR.... install this run this run that.... doesn't work, and as far as I'm concerned, this was one of the best games online to play EVER!! And with all this teasing going on of all the other ppl playing,.... I'm a bit upset I can't get it running..

Hey,

and you've checked the Mac install guide and wrote your issue there? viewtopic.php?f=4&t=43040 (it's right the link at the begining of this thread)

Got to say that with Crossover21 + MacOs Monterey on a M1 MacbookAir the installation went smooth and everything works just fine. I did posted on the forum thread stated above the steps I followed.

OK, so, yeah, I read the install page, tried twice more yesterday, something about this really doesn't make sense. but I will say I (Didn't want to load it on my laptop, but ....) loaded it on my PC laptop last night, and was rewarded with a few hours of game play that I remember from the 'days of old', and enjoyed it very much. So, that being said, still upset I can't run it on my more powerful iMac with the much bigger screen and deeper colors, but! I'll be playing at the least, and I will keep trying the Mac.
thanks all.
