New Steam Wrapper!

After receiving an email about some sound issues for some users with some games, I updated the Steam Wrapper with a fix for that. Besides that I changed all Steam game pages with an option for downloading the  Steam Wrapper including the info which Steam Wrapper to use. The updated Wrappers are: Steambuild1, SteambuildGLSL and Steambuildx11. So if you experienced sound issues or crashes on startup while the game page mentioned that Steambuild1 should work, then try the new Steam Wrappers. Enjoy! Remember that Crossover may have also 1-click installers (crossties) for the specific games of your choice.

Changes:
– Fixed sound (or crashes) which may have appeared for some games.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes for the Mac!

Who doesn’t like LEGO games? Well, I have some good news, LEGO MARVEL Super Heroes runs great as far I could see in the Steambuild1 Wrapper and in Crossover. Played a level without any issues on my Nvidia 640m iMac. A 512mb GFX card is recmmended though. Because this games runs awesome I expect that it won’t be very long that Aspyr or Feral Interactive comes with a native of the game as well.

LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes features an original story crossing the entire Marvel Universe. Players take control of Iron Man, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Captain America, Wolverine and many more Marvel characters as they unite to stop Loki and a host of other Marvel villains from assembling a super-weapon capable of destroying the world. Players will chase down Cosmic Bricks as they travel across LEGO Manhattan and visit key locations from the Marvel Universe, such as Stark Tower, Asteroid M, a Hydra base and the X-Mansion.

List of changes

  • Wineskin.m background daemon has been merged into WineskinLauncher.  Please test thoroughly, including file assocations, and opening the wrapper from Finder, as well as all other functionality and screen options.  Wineskin.m used to be the main brains of the wrapper, so a lot had to change to get it working inside of WineskinLauncher.
  • A D3DBoost checkbox has been added in Screen Options in Wineskin.app.  This will quickly let you enable/disable the CSMT option for Command Stream in Wine.  This is currently only in Wineskin engines maked D3DBoost, and in the WS9WineCX13.1.0 engine.  It will be in future Wine versions when CSMT becomes standard in Wine.
  • Killall Wineskin button in Wineskin.app should work again.
  • Killall Wineskin button will also attempt to clear stuck launchd process to clear up 10810 errors.
  • Fixed a parsing bug in Winetricks update that caused some entries to have the wrong command names and fail to work, such as corefonts and allfonts.
  • Stuck launchd processes will try to be removed at wrapper shut down, if any.  This is to attempt to prevent 10810 errors.
  • In the git repo, Wineskin.app projoect folder has been renamed from Wineskin to WineskinApp.
  • In the git repo, WineskinLauncherAS (the Applescript version of the old Launcher) has been removed.
  • In the git repo, Wineskin.m has been removed.

Tryst for the Mac!

Today we have Tryst for you!  Tryst is a competitive Real Time Strategy Game that aims to provide a unique, fast paced spin to the established strategy model that combines player choice with unit customization.

When using the Steam Wrapper download the Steambuild1 version and extract the Wrapper with an un-archive program like the free KEKA. Then launch Steam and download the game into Steam and play! For Crossover users, simply download the CrossTie and let Crossover do the rest. Check the game play trailer below.

War has erupted on the lonely planet of Ishtonia IV. Humans and a sentient, mechanical alien race known as the Zali – former collaborators in the mining and processing of the rare compound, Lohum – now see each other as threats to their continued existence on the planet both had so tenuously shared.

Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death for the Mac!

A nice golden oldie action game. There’s a lot to like about Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death. Just one look at the screenies should convince you that we’re talking ancient tech here, but the dated visuals hide a smooth and capable engine. The environments are suitably Dredd-y, and the level design is varied enough to keep attention levels high for the duration of the campaign. The gameplay’s pretty good, too; Dredd’s regenerating shield means that you can always soak up a few bullets no matter how precarious your health gets. As old-school shooters go, it’s a solid, entertaining title. If you don’t own the game yet, I strongly advise you to buy Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death (only $5,99) on GOG.com

Welcome to Mega-City One, a city of over four hundred million people and everyone of them a potential criminal. Stretching the length of the 22nd century American eastern seaboard, Mega-City One is the most dangerous city on Earth, for it is calculated that one serious crime takes place every second of every day. So dangerous, it demands a special breed of law enforcer.
