Star Trek – Hidden Evil for Mac

I was first from opinion to skip this game because of the small glitches which the game has. But When playing it for a while, the glitches aren’t that bad. So here we are Star Trek – Hidden Evil for Mac! And yes, I tested the game both on my intel based Macbook Pro 2019 and my M1 apple silicon Mac mini, and game works nice on both machines (aside of those glitches). To see what I mean, I made a video tutorial + some gameplay using my M1 Apple Silicon Mac.

I mentioned it also in the youtube video description, you won’t see your desktop when playing on the background (sides), you will see black bars instead because of the resolution of the game. That’s a bug of my screenflow version (video capture).

For Apple M1 Apple Silicon it might require the latest Mac OS version of Monterey 12.1! So if it doesn’t work and you or on Big Sur, then upgrade to the latest Mac OS version Monterey!

Need help reporting issues with ports on M1 Apple Silicon.

You saw the past week some wrapper updates regarding the latest CX21.1.o Engine. Which is of course great news for many ports!

You may think, why not updating all ports with that latest engine, well, we thought and even did that for a few days finding out that this engine has for many games regressions as well. So, that did made us cautious to do that and made us switch to manual updating ports again preventing these issues. This work is quite extensive, but we also need your help letting us know if a specific port is not working with the M1 Apple Silicon Mac.

If this is the case let us know asap so we can look into it and fix it and when impossible at least update the port description with that info.

Thanks in advance,
Paul

Unreal Tournament GOY updated for M1 Apple Silicon Macs!

Another game tested and updated for the M1 Apple Silicon: Unreal Tournament! I am still planning for making a gameplay video, but that one will follow within a few days. Christmas time, so I will be a bit more occupied with that :) To make it work for M1 Apple silicon, you do need to do a special action which is now also mentioned in the game description. After install you need to set a specific “device”.

When you press play and get into the launcher, click “change your 3d video device” –> “show all devices” –> click the “open GL support” option.  Then next, next, run. In the game itself you can change your resolution to widescreen. To 1440×900 for example.

Announcing CX21.1.0 in Porting Kit!

Great news! As already hinted in the last post, here the official announcement for the CX21.1.0 engine! The next post will contain some of the already arranged updates of ports! The engine has been made possible with the help and hard work of Gxenx from the Portingkit Team and the unofficial Wineskin. He is doing a tremendous job keeping things up to date and functioning also regarding Wine. So if you wanna give him a token of appreciation you can donate him directly up here…

Changes in the the CX21.1.0 contain better support for M1 apple Silicon. Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 + 2 (for M1 Apple Silicon), SimCity 4 and much more and also much better support for M1 Apple Silicon. See the changelog below:

Our big reveal for this release is much-awaited support for Grand Theft Auto V (including GTA Online) on both macOS and Linux. Starting with CrossOver 21.1, you can now run Grand Theft Auto V via either the standalone Rockstar Games Launcher or Steam.

This release is also the first to offer official support for the newly released macOS Monterey. We also added support for several games that previously did not run on macOS and fixed an issue for certain launchers that were not working on macOS with CrossOver 21 (including MicroTik The Dude)

CrossOver 21.1 includes several other fixes, including ones for the recent updates to Ubisoft Connect and Quicken that caused problems running them in CrossOver. Additionally, this release includes improvements to wined3d and an update to Wine Mono 7.

Coming time, there will be another update period for game ports. For M1 apple silicon Macs will for every game switch to the latest CX21.1.0 engine so it will benefit the best support for the M1 Apple silicon chip. This change will be done within a few days and there will be an official post about that.

Enjoy!!
