Wine 1.7.26 released!

A new Wine version is out (Wine 1.7.30) on WineHQ since last Friday! The wine version is now build in an engine and is available in “Winery“. Winery is a program where you can build wrappers with, and is available on the Wineskin website. I used Winery to build all my Wrappers for this website. The engine itself isn’t available in winery yet, but doh123 will add it as soon as he can. There are some C runtime improvements and some extra DirectWrite functions. See more details below and on WineHQ.

You can change the wine engine in existing Wrappers doing: Right-click Wrapper –> show package content –> wineskin –. advanced –> tools –> change engine –> change it to the latest engine you downloaded, in this case 1.7.30.

The Wine development release 1.7.30 is now available.

What’s new in this release:

  • More support for fonts in DirectWrite.
  • Improved ATL thunk support.

Robocraft released for Mac!

Well, it is finally there ;) The native Steam version of Robocraft! This makes my Wrapper for Robocraft not necessary anymore. This means the instructions are changed to simply downloading the Mac Steam –> login and download and play! I also changed the game page to the native version of the game. For the people who never heard of the game, check out the trailer below of this “free to play” action game! Have fun!

Adjusted game page you can find here…

Some more CrossTies!

As you guys know I try to make for every Wrapper I make for a game, a Crosstie as well. This process takes normally a few days longer because the CrossTie needs to be approved first by Crossover. So if you own Crossover, always check a few days later on  a game-port release if there is a CrossTie available for that specific game. Or simply check for this kind of posts where I mention the latest new CrossTies. OF course it might happen that there won’t be a CrossTie for the specific game simply because it won’t work in Crossover yet (they use an older stable Wine Engine).

Anyway here a small list of CrosstTies done past week:
Alpha Prime
Crimsonland
Airline Tycoon 2
Gothic 3
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI
Mass Effect

Hatoful Boyfriend released for the Mac

Hatoful Boyfriend has been released for Mac. People were at first very skeptical and had low expectations, but that changed when they played actually the game. It’s really more interactive novel than game, and the premise IS odd and just slightly silly, but the game is deliberately tongue in cheek and playfully makes fun of it’s own insanity at times. That said don’t play this expecting complete lightheartedness , humor and pure parody, if you follow certain routes and get into the back-story of the world and characters the story is deeper than you’d think at first glance. The game is available on GOG.com with the price tag of $9,99. When you think that’s too much, then just wish-list it, so you can get it on a promo action.

Congratulations! You’ve been accepted as the only human student at the prestigious St. PigeoNation’s Institute, a school for talented birds! Roam the halls and find love in between classes as a sophomore student at the world’s greatest pigeon high school. Finding happiness won’t be easy, but it’s not all academic – there’s always time for a little romance in this delightful remake of Hato Moa’s popular visual novel / avian dating sim Hatoful Boyfriend!

Alpha Prime for the Mac!

Here a re-port of Alpha Prime for the Mac on paulthetall.com! I did this one in the past already, but with migration of the game pages this one went lost, so I made a better new one. Alpha Prime is a futuristic action game with loads of action like Deus Ex. I played the game a bit and seems to work native Windows! I made a visual video tutorial with some gameplay below. Have fun!

Somewhere, on a lifeless asteroid in deep space…Something has gone terribly wrong. The miners on Alpha Prime were warned that the hubbardium they were mining was too dangerous, but the lure of unimaginable wealth was too strong. Now, something has happened to them and it’s up to you to save them and face an unknown threat. Armed with an assortment of hi-tech weapons and the ability to hack into the station’s own automated defenses, this terrifying mission will test the limits of your psyche as well as your physical prowess. Are you prepared?

Download the Portingkit and select the Aura game on the library –> server tab and download and install the game using the basic video tutorial of the Portingkit. Have fun!

Cosmo’s Cosmic Adventure released for Mac!

GOG.com released another old gem for Mac today called Cosmo’s Cosmic Adventure. His name is Cosmo and he is a young alien on his way to visit a world-famous amusement park with his parents. That is, until their ship is struck by a blazing comet, forcing them to land on an uncharted planet. While his Dad repairs the ship, Cosmo heads off to explore the strange planet. Upon returning, both his Mom and Dad are gone, and big, scary alien footprints are all around his ship! Oh no! Have Cosmo’s parents been captured? Possibly to be eaten? Well, Cosmo is off to the rescue.

Cosmo’s Cosmic Adventure is an exciting journey across a forbidden planet full of dangers and surprises. Cosmo is a lovable extra-terrestrial with a special ability: he has hands that work like suction cups! He can cling to walls, ledges, and all sorts of things. Using his suction hands, Cosmo is able to avoid dangers, scale cliffs and get to places other aliens can’t reach. Can he save his parents before they’re lightly seasoned and devoured?

  • Cosmo has many tricks, such as scaling walls with his suction hands.
  • Over 20 unique and surprising creatures.
  • Massive levels, yet easy to explore.

You can get the game for $5,99 on GOG.com up here…

– some bug fixes
– New paulthetall.com branded icon

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI for Mac

Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI is now ported to the Mac on paulthetall.com! Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI is an turnbased strategy game in the old chinese dynasty period. I played the tutorial a bit and seems to work just fine except that the graphical little video’s get skipped. So it is pure gameplay ;) Game is tested on Intel Graphics and on my Nvidia 640M iMac. I will make a video tutorial with some gameplay later today, but made the wrapper available already. Have fun!

Before downloading the Wrapper, make sure security settings are set correctly when you have Mavericks OSX or higher. Then download and extract Wrapper below –> Get and download Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI from Gamersgate.com  –> double-click wrapper –> install windows software –> navigate to the Gamersgate setup file and double-click on it –> then the install wizard will appear –> install the game –> at the end of the installation click “Exit”. Now double-click the Wrapper and play! Have fun!

Rediscover an ancient civilization with an explosive history in the most stunning edition of Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Set during the end of China’s Han Dynasty and the 2nd and 3rd centuries A.D., RTKXI presents the most visually-captivating evolution in the history of the series. Blurring the line between video games and art, RTKXI features visuals evocative of classical Chinese ink-paintings along with debates and duels rendered in real-time 3D animation.
