Europa Universalis for Mac!

Europa Universalis has been released on GOG.com. A nice chance to check the game out to get it working for Mac as well. With quite some success, I got the game running in the Portingkit although the ingame music is missing. The rest of the sounds works just fine!  I tested the game on my Nvidia 640M iMac and it works great! Played about 1 hour without issues (accept the sound and no intro). The game is added to the Portingkit now. Check out the video below for the instructions and some game-play!

Notes:
– No intro
– Seems that ingame music isn’t working. All other sounds works just fine.

Europa Universalis is a historical strategy game that simulates all aspects of world history from 1492 to 1792. Each player takes on the role of one of the major nations of the era, controlling diplomacy, economy, warfare, exploration, and colonization. The game takes place on a map divided into approximately 1,500 provinces, and proceeds in a pausable real time format.

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “Europa Universalis” game and click download. If you don’t own the game yet the Portingkit can direct you to the game page where to purchase it and download the setup/download file into your download folder. When you clicked “no” and were directed to the game page, you have to click “download” again and then click “yes” so the Portingkit will install the game for you. After installation the Portingkit will say the installation was done successfully. Then go to your “local” tab where you can select the game and click “play”!

More games added to Portingkit!

Although I would like to see that the process of adding games to the Portingkit would be faster, games are added day by day.  And with the Latest Portingkit (1.4.12) version there is also added opengl registry support, so I could add the awesome Medal of Honor Warchest game! This WSI file will add the 3 shortcuts with its own cool icon of Medal of Honor Allied Assault and its expansion packs “Spearhead” and “Breakthrough”. This means you can launch all three games within the Portingkit with one click!

The same kind of thing I created for Interstate 76 Arsenal which creates an extra shortcut for the Nitroriders expansion and with Cultures 1+ 2, which adds the 2 shortcuts for those games as well.Then I also added the two Imperialism games: Imperialism and Imperialism 2: The age of Exploration, which also contain new icons and an updated wine engine. This also counts for Settlers 2 – 10th Anniversary and Etherlords 2. And last but not least I added the free game Battleships Forever! Have fun with the Portingkit!

Need for Speed Shift (Origin) for Mac!

Also Need for speed Shift works awesome in Origin! I can play this game in the highest resolution (1920×1080) with all shadows and environment settings on High if I want (motion blur/bloom excluded), on my AMD Radeon 6770M 512mb and Nvidia 640M. I used the Gamersgate (Origin) version which works out of the box. Simply get the Need for Speed Ultimate Digital Collection which contains 4 NFS games: NFS prostreet, and Need for Speed Undercover and Need for speed Shift + Need for Speed Shift 2! A must have collection for only $29! When not living in the US then get the Gamersgate UK version. Then install NFS Shift into the Portingkit as the video shows and play the game! Have fun!

Install instructions:
Open the Portingkit and download the “Need for Speed Shift” file and let the Portingkit install Origin. The open Origin and activate the Gamersgate version serial mentioned above. After downloading the game this one stucks at installing (one of the only annoying bugs), but you can easily fix this by quitting Origin (after a few minutes to be sure), and then login again and then you are able to launch the game without problems. BUT, before you launch you have to do one more thing…Go to your preferences of Origin and turn off  “ingame Origin” and “Automatically update the game” (select-box). If you don’t do that, the game will freeze at launch. So make sure this is turned off , also when playing any other game in Origin. Then click play to start (will ask to update, don’t do that). Have fun!

Need for Speed™ SHIFT is an award-winning authentic racing game that combines the true driver’s experience with real-world physics, pixel-perfect car models, and a wide range of authentic race tracks.
