CodeWeavers claims upcoming version of its CrossOver Games application will enable DirectX 10 support on Unix-based operating systems, including Linux and Mac OS X. Besides games, the company is also working hard on getting other major Windows applications to work on Unix based operating systems, including Microsoft Office, using a proprietary version of WINE.
The software developer’s founder and CEO, Jeremy White, revealed some details about CodeWeavers’ roadmap on a blog yesterday, in which he touched on game support. As well as recently shipping “a lot of those 'under the hood' improvements for games out in CrossOver Games 7.2,” White also said that “we're really pushing DirectX 9 support pretty far along, and getting ready to move on DirectX 10.”
CrossOver games 7.0 had a very long list of supported Windows games, that included Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3, Civilization IV and World of Warcraft. However, very few of the games were described as fully working, with most of the titles getting an “Honorable Mention” badge, meaning that they were known to install and run, but weren’t fully tested and supported by CodeWeavers.
