    No, thanks.
    Just for sake of curiosity, check any production oriented CAD or CAM software...

      The only proper games supported by CodeWeaver are Diablo3 and WoW.

      For the 500 other titles in the list is a forum, where users can help users...

          OK some more. Funny enough, DDO is listed as TOP 25 applications and not supported
          The current installation script will install the game and thankfully all the .NET and other winetricks stuff. The pylotro client (whereever that went) doesn't work. Do I installed it manually then had to rename the prefix/bottle folder to something without spaces in the file name in order to patch the client. After that everything is as if I would have used normal wine?

          Does crossover actual use the OS version of wine or its own?
          I mean I start the game with the normal pyloro client, which uses the system Python interpreter. That client would use the wine binary installed on the system I assume and not some Crossover patched version.

          So the only advantage is to have all the winetricks dependencies installed by the installation script in Crossover.

          //edit:
          and what are these files for in the prefix:
          cxassoc.conf cxbottle.conf cxmenu.conf cxnsplugin.conf
          Maybe I just start the application the wrong way?

            If you installed the pylotro client in the same bottle then that would use codeweaver's version of wine.

            The advantage is that by buying Crossover you get to fund further development of wine, you get an easy way to install quite a hefty bunch of windows programs and you get access to support from the devs if something breaks the functionality of a supported application.

            Fun fact: Since you mentioned Diablo 3 as one of the worthwhile games that have official support, do you know how it came to be that wine and Crossover got the ability to run it? It's because Blizzard gave early beta access to Codeweavers so that they could work on that. Of course, you can choose to believe me or not. It's fine either way.

              The installation script installed a Windows version of pylotro: into the prefix (pylotro.exe)
              So how would I start that without using the system wine version?

              I could run it like :
              /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine /bla/bla/pylotro.exe
              To use the codeweaver wine version...

              Or create a simlink /usr/bin/wine to /opt/cxoffice/bin/wine
              So I would know how to work around it, but that shouldn't be default?

                Pylotro should have been installed in the same bottle where lotro was installed. You have the ability to change that just before installing.

                If PyLotro was installed in it's own bottle (or prefix) then it would still use codeweaver's version of wine. Want to check it? Uninstall wine. If you are right, PyLotro should not be able to run

                  Jupp, you are right.

                  I went back to wine now. Crossover turns off the external monitor (I want to play on) and starts the game on the laptop screen. Changes both resolutions and then when you come out of the game, it leaves it at the game resolution.
                  With stock wine-1.5.13 on the radeon driver I get ~20 fps more, tested in the exact same area (~30-40 instead of 10-20) with the same settings folder for graphic in the game.

                  And the game isn't supported anyway.
