Crystal Caves released for Mac!

Crystal Caves has been released for Mac yesterday on GOG.com. It is a colorful game with arcade-style gameplay, puzzles and graphics. As Mylo Steamwitz, you’ll enter cave after cave of adventure, gathering the treasures of each, while evading hazards galore! This retro game is especially for the retrogamers a nice add-on on their retro game collection. Check out the trailer below for some gameplay.

The game begins with Mylo rocketing to the Altairian star system on a simple treasure hunt. But what happens is far more dangerous than even Mylo bargained for. He enters an underground world of chambers full of alien technology and traps. Strange alien creatures and robots inhabit the caves, protecting the priceless crystals from money-greedy explorers.

Bully – Scholarship Edition for Mac!

On request: Bully: Scholarship Edition! I tested the Gamersgate edition (now a Steam serial), in the Steambuild1 Wrapper and works fine. I played the game about 2 hours without any issues. Make sure you in the ingame options increase the mouse sensitivity to “2.0” or higher for proper mouse movement for camera view. A good video-card is recommend though. I played the game in the highest resolution (1600×900) without issues on my Nvidia 640M iMac with 512MB. Enjoy!

Note: The game won’t work on most Intel graphic cards (Like Intel Graphics HD 4000/5000), but seems to work on Intel Iris. It might be that the Mac driver needs to be turned off for the Intel Iris gfx cards doing: right-click wrapper –> show package content –> wineskin –> screen settings and deselect the mac driver. Game works great on Nvidia Mac’s (512mb advised).

Install Instructions: 
Download the Portingkit using the link below and extract it –> then double-click the Portingkit and go to the server library tab –> search for Bully Scholarship and download the WSI file which will create a Wrapper including Steam. Then when creation is finished, go to the local library tab and launch Bully and login into the Windows steam and activate the Bully: Scholarship Edition (if you don’t own it yet) serial and download and play!

Official WOT Wrapper added on game page!

Wargaming.net has released its own Mac port on their site which runs much more stable then mine. Their native alpha build seems not to “hang/crash” while returning to garage and frame-rates are a better as well. So I add the download link  for this version as well on the game page. I will keep my wrapper as an alternative download if the wrapper doesn’t work at all for you, or when using other regions then US. For the other regions then US, use the written guide  instructions on the WOT site which “dstud208” described very good for my wrapper.

The Guild 2 Wrapper update!

Because I received a couple of requests to look into the Guild 2 Wrapper, I managed to fix a couple of things when updating it. First I added directplay support, which normally should give multiplayer functionality in combination with hamachi. When trying, make sure firewall is turned off otherwise you cannot see or join a multiplayer game (multiplayer is not tested by functionality is there now). Second, I fixed a mouse bug, which regularly moved the person somewhere else then you clicked. Last but not least it fixes a couple of graphical glitches + a slight performance improvement. Have fun!

Changes:
– Mouse bug fix
– Slight performance improvement
– Small graphical glitch fixes.
– Directplay support included.
– New Icon
