Porting Kit 2.9.420 update released!

Porting Kit 2.9.420 update released!

Normally we only do updates of Porting Kit, but for this update I make an exception because it contains a fix for a major bug (user.reg override) which affected many game ports in Porting Kit. If you ran into an issue running a game-port in Porting Kit, then this bug might be the cause of it. In order to fix the problem for those games, you need to update porting Kit  to latest version (Porting Kit menu in upper bar –> “check for updates”, and after update reinstall the game.

Whats new in this update:
 Improved: Video card device ID detection
– Improved: Video card memory size can be detect automatically in case the computer has a single video card using OpenGL
– Improved: Video card memory size can be detect manually in some cases (Intel Iris, Intel HD, NVIDIA GeForce 320M and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M)
– Improved: Video card type detection for Intel GMA
– Improved: Google Analytics report in case no video card data can be detected
– Improved: Google Analytics report in case no video card memory size can be detected
– Added: Google Analytics use message
Fixed: user.reg override should work properly again

Enjoy the update!

Simcity 3000 Wrapper update!

Good news, some people reported some mouse issues in the Simcity 3000 game port.  This has been addressed in the latest Wrapper update. Simcity 3000 is a very popular good old City Builder game, which is still played a lot and is available on GOG.com. So if you want to try it out then now is your chance!

If you have the game installed, trash the old wrapper in your local tab. Then go to server tab refresh the server list and reinstall the game. Have fun!

Changes:
– Fixed Mouse issue (disappeared  regularly)

Gwent Directx11 only, drops support Directx9.

Some sad news for the Gwent fans. It seems that Gwent dropped support for Directx9 in their recent version of Gwent. It’s now full Directx11. I tried to find a workaround, and thought I found one by switching back with an older version of the game (v22). Unfortunatly after getting hope when I saw it boot up, I got a message ingame from gwent that “this” (older version) is not supported…

In other words, the fairy tale that Gwent Works for Mac using Wine has ended for now. I tried to do some tweaks, which unfortunately has no use to revive the game. We need some more Wine development supporting Direct11, this may take quite some more months until it is that far. So the Gwent fans unfortunatly have to wait again…

Keep an eye on the blog coming time for updates

The Curse of Monkey Island released for Mac

Released on Mac on GOG.com: Monkey Island 3 or called otherwise: Curse of Monkey Island!

I’ve sailed the seas from Trinidad to Tortuga and I’ve never seen anything like it! The engagement ring I gave Elaine has a terrible pirate curse on it. LeChuck is behind it, I’m sure. I should have known that nothing good could come out of that evil zombie’s treaures. And if that’s not bad enough, the clairvoyant I met in the mangrove swamp told me that if I am to break the curse and save Elaine, I will have to die!

Excerpted from “The Memoirs of Guybrush Threepwood: The Monkey Island Years”

  • Third in the legendary Monkey Island series of graphic adventures
  • Film quality animation, voice, sound and music – the undead come to life before your very eyes!
  • A barrel of gameplay – estimated 30-plus hours!
  • Two difficulty settings: regular and Mega-Monkey (now with more puzzley goodness)!
  • New and improved insults suitable for swordfights and other fun occasions!

News about the Porting Kit Legacy version (Support OSX 10.6 and 10.7)

News about the Porting Kit Legacy version (Support OSX 10.6 and 10.7)

We thought about it already for a while, but now we come to a point we really have to make choices. The Porting Kit Legacy version is going to end (support for OSX 10.6 and 10.7) We know this may sound like a shocking decision to some of you, however this is the best for the Porting Kit future.

The number of Porting Kit Legacy users became around 0.9% of the total in the last three months. This is a very small number considering the tremendous amount of time to maintain it. Especially considering that we haven’t used resources introduced in macOS 10.7 and beyond in the main features to keep the Legacy support.

The last version of Porting Kit Legacy will still be available in the Porting Kit website. It will become the new stable version, and it should still be able to work. Although, it will not receive updates anymore.

The good news is, that with that change, we should be able to introduce to you some new cool features. That includes a new library, which combines Local and Server tabs in a single view. The new stuff is planned to happen in the coming weeks, so we keep you guys informed :)
