Don’t update to Mojave (yet)!

Don't update to Mojave (yet)!

As you guys may all be aware of is the 64bit only change Apple want’s to push forward in not all to long. We hope Mojave will be the break before the real push to 64bit only. However, although Wineskin (that’s the wrapper part) stopped working properly in the latest update of Mojave. Luckily there is already a fix, but that part is not implemented yet in Porting Kit. This all will be done shortly, but to be on the safe side, wait until we are fully ready to prevent all kind of misery.

We are always working hard to make the best of Porting Kit so you can enjoy your Windows games on your Mac :) We have to stick together and endure the things to come and try to keep standing as long as we can and try to find a workaround/solution before the next OS After Mojave (10.15). Support us, help us, and we will get through! Thanks guys!

Some more Wrapper updates

Some more Wrapper updates

It’s very busy lately, But I manage some maintenance on a few ports after getting a few e-mails about them. As you know we always try our best in our spare-time to improve porting Kit and the ports of course, which is a continuous progress.

Starting with Zork Grand Inquisitor. That game seemed to be changed from DOS version to SCUMVM version in the GOG.com catalog. So this meaned for me to change the installer file and startup flags for the SCUMVM version. Working lovely now.

Then we have Giants – Citizen Kabuto, which had an issue because GOG change the setup file name, so I changed that for the game, this also counted for Mount and Blade – Fire and Sword. So fixed that issue as well.

Enjoy the games!

Porting Kit Tips: Screen Capture!

I am doing a series of tip posts to learn more about Porting Kit and all it’s features. I already did the first tutorial about themes. If You missed that one, you can read about that tip up here…

 

 

 

 

 

Today we discuss the special feature: Screen capture! You maybe wouldn’t expect that feature in Porting Kit, but we have it implanted indeed. You can find the feature under the Porting Kit menu –> Tools –> Start Screen Capture. It will then ask for a location to save the screen capture. Then Select a nice spot, choose if you want to have the mouse cursor on your capture and in what resolution you want to capture. When you made your mind start a Porting Kit game to capture or anything else you had in mind. Yes this also means “non” Porting Kit stuff ;)

When you are finished. You can stop the screen capture using the “Stop Screen Capture” option in the Porting Kit –> tools menu or a more aggressive method with a combination key of cmd + q (closes Porting Kit as well). Then check the results in your where you saved the screen-capture.

Enjoy this cool feature in Porting Kit! If you have more cool stuff you want in Porting Kit, or you have good Suggestions, then please let us know so we can make Porting Kit even better then it already is! Use the “Contact” feature in Porting Kit to reach us.
