Running Orange Box on my Mac using CrossOver

by ,

I managed to get Team Fortress 2 to run under CrossOver, but only in a 1920×1799 window (which was basically full-screen, so not too bad, actually).

I was less successful with Portal. It always seemed to start in the bottom-right corner of the monitor.
I could see the starting menu, but the last item (quit) was always offscreen.
I did manage to click on “Options” and then cursor-down to get to “quit” though.

    Wow. This all looks like Twitter talk to me. Pick every second phrase and every capitalized noun, noun phrase, copyrighted or proprietary term and explain it to me…

    “Orange Box”: collection of games from Valve, the makers of Half-Life 2.
    “Portal”: one of the games
    “Team Fortress 2”: another one of the games
    “CrossOver”: runs Windows apps in Mac OS via Wine libraries.

    How’s that?
