Game description:
It is 1930. Due to circumstances he couldn’t possibly have predicted, Tommy’s life as a cabdriver is about to be exchanged for a life in the Mafia. At first he continues his work as a driver and nothing could be better. He soon becomes good friends with his sidekicks Paulie and Sam, and although the work is sometimes risky, he earns more money than he did as a cabdriver. But as time goes on he is ordered to undertake more and more unpleasant jobs – and he starts to become disillusioned with the life he has chosen.

C&C Red Alert 2 Wrapper update!

Great news! Past weekend I did another update for Red Alert 2 with great performance boost and fixes. No more issues with resolutions, great speed, just as it used to be. The extra files mentioned in the description (zip file + moving the files (not folder) into the Red Alert 2 Game folder after installation of the game in Origin, are still required! Game runs awesome now! I am still working adding more multiplayer functionality using CCnet or others, but that’s still on my todo list. Enjoy!

Whats new?:
– Performace Improvements
– Fix for possible freezes in 1024×768 resolutions

You can find the updated wrapper in Porting Kit on the server tab, or go to the game page here…

Blitzkrieg 2 Wrapper update and 2 extra expansion ports!

I updated the Blitzkrieg 2 Anthology port. It was split up by GOG.com in 3 separate installers: Blitzkrieg 2, Blitzkrieg 2 – Liberation and Blitzkrieg 2 – Fall of the Reich. So I had to fix the main game installer plus I had to create 2 separate ports for the 2 expansion games. So here we are :) Have fun with this strategy classic!

Whats new?
– Fix of the main game path + setup file detect
– 2 new game ports for the 2 expansions Liberation + Fall of the Reich

All three games have their own game pages here…, here… and here…

Dungeons 3 released for Mac

Dungeons 3 has been released for Mac on GOG.com. It’s the successor of Dungeons 2, which is also available for Mac. Dungeon’s is a kind of dungeon master where you have to create an army and defeat the other party.

The game is full of content and sports even a co-op mode – which is lovely to have. Between a good (if predictable) campaign, solid skirmish and multiplayer it has a lot to offer. So if you dont want to spend all your time fighting, and enjoy the fun of building a fancy trap filled death dungeon this might be one to pick up.

Banished Wrapper update with “music fix”!

Here another quick heads up! We updated the Banished (32bit) wrapper with a Music Fix. As you may know the recent port of course had sounds, but no music. This has been fixed now as well. Enjoy Banished in it’s full glory now, with sound and music! How to update? Trash or backup/move the old wrapper out of the applications\games folder and download the 32 bit Banished  GOG setup file into your download folder. Then in Porting Kit search the updated game on the server tab and install and play!

What’s new:
– Music fix!

Star Wars – Battlefront 2 Wrapper update!

I got some mails from people who tried to install Star Wars Battlefront 2, into Porting Kit, but it didn’t work anymore because first the setup was not automatically recognized + main exe path was changed + a new dll was required. All of this has to do with a recent update of the game on GOG.com. They released new installers with multiplayer support using GOG Galaxy (which is not available yet in Porting kit) and changed the setup files of the “Battle Front 2 Classic XP/Vista (no multiplayer)” version (which is supported in Porting Kit).

So, to play the game in Porting Kit you need to download the “Battle Front 2 Classic XP/Vista” setup files (not the ones for multiplayer) and let porting Kit install it and start the fun. We are looking to the Multiplayer Galaxy support version, but until then use the one mentioned above.

Changed:
– Fixed auto-detect GOG setup file
– Updated main path .exe
– Fixed startup issue (extra binkw32.dll required)

Cuphead for Mac

On many request Cuphead for Mac! The game port is experimental and should process to at least 90% of the game (7-8 hours of gameplay) before a possible crash may occur. If this happens, we would gladly get a save game file to reproduce the bug so we can fix it to a full working version. The problem is that the game is very hard :P so we need people to get this far into the game to sent us the save game file :) Meanwhile you can enjoy this awesome made game! Have fun!

Game Description:
Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit if you don’t have it yet.
2. Get the Cuphead game from GOG.com when you don’t own it yet.
3. Download the setup file from your GOG.com game library.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the Cuphead game on the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game click “exit” and then in Porting Kit click “Play”!

Porting Kit 2.9.0 released!

We made a new release of Porting Kit which contains 2 dozens of changes and improvements. One of the most important and the one with the most impact is the new installer wizard feature! Yes thats right, with every install of a game there is install wizard which shows clear instructions and information about the installation, so installations will be even more a walk in the park!

Another cool improvements is that the Gecko/Mono windows will be closed automatically in the game installs, and lots of other bug fixes and small improvements for High Sierra as well.
