Windows version on Mac osx

Postby eggplant » 07 Sep 2012, 04:38

I tried playing the windows version in osx with Parallels without success, so i was wondering wich other ways are there? Will Crossover work?

Just tried with Crossover and it works pretty good, but it doesn't recognize my key. I put the key.txt in the same folder as the Tennis Elbow 2011 application.

Hello,

I didn't know it could work with Crossover.
The usual advice is to install Windows with DualBoot Camp.

Check the file name of your Key is "Key.txt" and not "key.txt" or something like that (ie: it may be case sensitive).

I have Windows on bootcamp, but of course i use osx mainly and would prefer if it works there.

I copied the file from windows, so that isn't the problem. Also excluded the game and crossover from firewalls, but no luck.

Do you get an Invalid Key message ?
Or the game just starts in trial mode without warning ? If the later, it could be a uppercase/lowercase issue like I told you in my previous post.

Tried with Playonmac software and it is working with the key but could be running better graphically. If you could test the game on Crossover and Playonmac and figure out how to get it working optimally, or work directly with them to support it officially, a lot of people would use them, since more and more people are using mac.

TE 3D engine is pretty standard DirectX 8 Stuff, so performance should be likely in-line with other 3D games run with Playonmac.
