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.

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
