Wrappers for Red Faction + Red Faction 2!

More Wrappers! I ported those 2 games in the past but after the website migration those Wrappers were lost and I had my hands full with other things at that time. And yes, yesterday I found a spot to look into Red Faction and Red Faction 2 again which had only CrossTies, and now the Wrappers are back! Better and faster! Enjoy those two games!

Virtual Skipper 5 re-release

Someone asked me about the Virtual Skipper 5 page, that it wasn’t updated and had no Wrapper for download. Well, I changed that and even created a CrossTie so it works in Crossover as well! Multiplayer unfortunately isn’t working, but the rest with single-player and races and courses works just fine. Its real fun for skippers and everyone who likes sailing. Enjoy this one!

Post Mortem for the Mac!

On request: Post Mortem! I already had an eye on the game for a while, but display issues prevented me to port the game. Now it finally works and hereby I present you the ported game Post Mortem! If you don’t own the game yet, then the game is DRM free available on GOG.com or on Gamersgate. in this detective adventure game you step into the shoes of Gus MacPherson, a former detective who wanted to retire to a quiet life of painting, as he takes on a grisly double murder mystery. You’ll meet plenty of unique characters on your way to solving the mystery, but beware, not all of them can be trusted and some can lead you down a dangerous path if you’re not careful. Can you crack the case before it kills you? Check the trailer below to get introduced to the game!

Paris, 1920’s. A horrible murder has taken place in a ritzy hotel. There’s nothing worse than retiring from the dirty detective business only to be pulled back in by a silently screaming pair of corpses. Name’s MacPherson, Gus to my friends. I didn’t want to take on this job but the dame was loaded, and I’m not talking cash. Women, the one weakness of a lonely gumshoe, they bat their eyelashes and he’s like putty in their hands. Turns out the stiffs were her sister and brother-in-law. As is usual for the fuzz, they acted like rampaging bulls in a china shop, made a mess of the whole case and that leaves me as life’s own janitor. Sigh, guess I better get cracking before the stiffs get too cold.

Updated Steam Wrappers (already)!

Well, the Engines weren’t even a few hours online and there are already new ones! There were some issues with them, so I had to fix them. Besides that a new new is added: Steambuild1b! This one is added because steambuild1 has (Now with the latest version) a speed/graphic tweak in it which may increase performance massively and fixes some graphical glitches in some games for some video cards like for example in “Ducktales Remastered“. With a normal wrapper this game is unplayable on Nvidia cards, but with the latest Steambuild1, this one works fine. However, with good things comes bad things! This tweak may cause speed and graphical glitches which aren’t on a “non-speed tweaked wrapper”, so when you experience that, move to Steambuild1b.

–    Steambuild1b: Try this one when Steambuild1 is slow and or has graphic glitches

These Steambuild Wrappers might also work with other games not mentioned on this website. If that is the case, please let me know using the contact form. This info is highly appreciated, so I can add the game to the paulthetall.com catalog and other people may benefit of this info as well. Because of the file size the Wrappers are 7ziped, use an un-archiver like the free KEKA to extract the 7zip files. The specific steam games pages will receive/be updated with info and links to the specific Steam Wrappers coming days. Enjoy!!!

New Steam Wrappers and Instructions!

Great news!! As already mentioned earlier I created a few Steam Wrappers which can be used for all the games mentioned on this website and more! This to compensate the people who cannot effort Crossover and still want to play their Steam games. I made a document with the list of Steam games on my website and about which Steambuild Wrapper to use in what occasion/for what game. After a lot fiddling and tweaking and trying to make sure to make the Wrapper as compatible as possible without breaking things, I came up with 4 different Steam Wrappers.  All 4 have their own strength and weaknesses.

–    Steambuild1: This Steam Wrapper is the first one you need to use for all the games.
–    Steambuild2: Try this one for all your games needing .net Frameworks 4.0
–    Steambuild3glsl:  Try this one When you experience graphical glitches with the build1
–    Steambuild4x11: Try this one if you hear the sound of the game but can’t see anything or when Steambuild1 simply doesn’t work for you.

Raise and train a troupe of cuddly virtual life creatures that live on the Capillata space ship and help them reach the level of advancement sufficient to fly it.
