Delta force Titles added to GOG.com catalog!

I hoped it, and felt it, that it would be added very soon and I was right! yesterday was the day! The Delta force series were added to the GOG.com catalog! This is great news! I already received the series from GOG.com and will add all the GOG versions for which I already had a steam version (all accept Delta Force Blackhawk Down). Blackhawk down will be added new to Porting Kit (is already added in Crossover) coming week! The Delta Force series is 75% off this weekend so get the series now you can dirt cheap! Enjoy!

To further enhance your Delta Force experience, GOG.com included some minor fixes, courtesy of the great people over at the NovaHQ community. These do not alter the games in any way -graphically or otherwise- but they do iron out some bugs and offer a fully-functional multiplayer solution via the community servers. This applies to all games except Delta Force: Xtreme.

Website recovered from D-DOS Attack

Website recovered from D-DOS Attack

The past 16 hours Paulthetall.com was under a constant D-Dos attack which ended in a total block of traffic to paulthetall.com by the hosting party. Luckily with the help of greengeeks support team we have cloudflare fully functional for the site so that paulthetall.com gets more protected against these evil attacks.

We hope we can put a period of attacks behind us now and get into more calmer waters. Thanks for all the patience past day while we were working on fixing the issue.

Dark Fall – The Journal for Mac & Linux

Dark Fall - The Journal for Mac & Linux

Adventure lovers may love this one: Dark Fall – The Journal for Mac & Linux (Linux using Crossover)! This adventure is rated quite high on GOG.com and especially the ones who like creepy games, this one may satisfy their needs. I myself am not really fan of those :P. I only played it for a few minutes. A nice thing though is that Dark Fall – The Journal is part of the weekly sale and is 75% off! So if you are interested in the game, you can get it cheap now ($1,49).

You come back from work hoping to get a good night’s sleep but then you notice light blinking on your answering machine. It was your brother – an architect redeveloping an old train station and hotel. He called to ask for your help. Alarmed by his frightened voice, cryptic information about some disappearance and strange whispers in the background you board a train without hesitation. From now on your adventure has just begun and soon you will realize that although no one is there, you are not alone…

Age of Empires 2 HD Wrapper Update!

It seemed not long ago that Age of Empires 2 HD had a steam update which made it require vcruntime 2015 and that made the game not work anymore. Practically that meaned, that the game wouldn’t launch anymore (no error or something). I managed to fix that problem yesterday. The problem seems to occur since a few days or perhaps even a week, I am not sure. Where I am sure of, is that it is fixed now :).

So if you have the same issue, do the following: Trash the wrapper in the local library (right-click and delete) in porting Kit. And on the server tab install Age of Empires 2 HD again. Have fun!

Firestarter for Mac & Linux

Firestarter for Mac & Linux

If you like action games in the way of Unreal and Unreal Tournament, then FireStarter might be a nice one for you too. FireStarter is now ported to Mac and I added it to Porting Kit as in Crossover (Linux + Mac). The game is tested on my Macbook air so it should thus work on any Mac with OSX 10.8.+. Have fun!

In the year 2010, a malicious virus has infected a virtual reality machine, the FireStarter. The intruding program has caused the computer to malfunction. The rules of the simulation have been altered in a potentially deadly manner, with the player’s consciousness trapped inside. There is only one possible way to escape, by completing the game with a period of 48 virtual hours.
