Codeweavers posted a blog post and video tonight showing CrossOver running on an Apple M1 MacBook Air. This video shows Team Fortress 2 running on a new ‌M1‌ ‌MacBook Air‌:

CrossOver is software (based on Wine Project) that runs Microsoft Windows applications on Mac by translating Windows APIs to their Mac equivalents. The Codeweavers team was able to run the current version of CrossOver on the new Apple ‌M1‌ ‌MacBook Air‌ running Rosetta 2 to achieve this feat.

That’s amazing considering we’re literally on the cheapest Apple Silicon device you can buy – a device that’s thermally throttled and lacks a GPU core.

I can’t tell you how cool it is; there is so much emulation under the covers. Imagine – a 32-bit Windows Intel binary, running in a 32 to 64 bridge in Wine / CrossOver on top of macOS, on an ARM processor that emulates x86 – and it works! It’s just so cool.

Codeweavers maintains a compatibility database so you can see what might work under CrossOver. They were also able to run Quicken, Among Us, and Witcher 3.
