Is CrossFire still alive?


The software won't open on the Mac, and email to contact address is being rejected. Anyone had recent dealings?

You may have an issue with Java. The Java runtime is not installed by default anymore. I am running Mac OS X 10.9.1 and just downloaded and installed the Crossfire demo without problems.

Latest version of Java installed to no avail. Message I'm getting is:
" can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer."

As I mentioned, email to developer is also bouncing. Has anyone bought it recently?

I realize this is an ancient thread, but just in case anyone else runs across this when searching for information about CrossFire on the Mac:

CrossFire does continue to work on the Mac. I am currently using it on OS X 10.11.1 (El Capitan). The most recent CrossFire release is based on Java 6, which requires installing a legacy Java runtime from Apple, but it still works.

The warning " can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer" is the result of Apple allowing by default only apps from registered Apple developers to run. It is easy to work around: when the dialog comes up, you may click the "Open" button to open the app anyway.

Thanks for the update on CrossFire, qwrrty.

I'm still using it on Yosemite so it's good to know it works on the latest OS version.
