Dishonored for Mac Gameplay video!

Since a long time I made a gameplay video of the Dishonored game! The performance of the game is great on even a medium-end iMac as my Intel Iris. Imagine how it runs on high end Macs! I played the game already for 1.5 hours, so yeah, for RPG lovers this game is a must have. I explain in the video a little bit the installation process, but will be mostly gameplay.

Red Alert 2 + C&C Renegade Wrapper update!

As promised! The Red Alert 2 and C&C Renegade update with Activation.dll fix! As mentioned in the previous post about the Origin Activation.dll fix which included the fix for the rest of the Origin games in the Porting Kit, now those last 2 games which are included in the C&C Ultimate edition (only about $8), which also includes C&C 3 + Kanes Wrath, Red Alert 3 + Uprising and C&C Generals!

Red Alert 2 I have added some extra notes (to add a couple of files for best performance) and played 3 levels without issues in 800×600 resolution. Also Renegade works just awesome (native Windows). Enjoy!

Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 for Mac

Hooah! We keep it coming! We added Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 for Mac to Porting Kit and Crossover! I played the game for about 30 minutes without issues on my Medium end Intel Iris iMac (although the video card is even not supported by the game). High-end Macs are really recommended. Don’t expect miracles on low-end Macs like my Intel HD Macbook Air which did tun the game, although barely in low settings. I even tested a multi-player game which ran just fine :). Enjoy!

Game Description:
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is the only multi-platform, first-person, modern shooter exclusively designed around the sniper experience. It takes the bulls-eye precision of its predecessor to new and exciting heights, offering more diverse sniper challenges; a rebuilt AI system and the thrilling “one shot, one kill” precision that made the original a huge hit, selling 3 million copies worldwide. Taking advantage of the advanced capabilities of the CryENGINE3, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 also delivers striking graphic environments.

Dishonored for Mac

And BAM! Another awesome title has been ported to the Mac! The well known Bethesda title Dishonored (only $4,22 at the moment)! The game is added in as well Porting Kit as in Crossover. The game works perfectly on Medium/High-end Macs like my Intel Iris iMac. Played for about 45 minutes without issues. Really recommended! If you like Falout – New Vegas or Elder Scrolls III – Morrowind, then this one is a must have!

Game Description:
Dishonored is an immersive first-person action game that casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. With Dishonored’s flexible combat system, creatively eliminate your targets as you combine the supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.

Binary Domain for Mac

And another cool title has been ported: Binary Domain! The game is both added to Porting Kit and Crossover. I played/tested the games for about an hour without issues on as well my intel Iris iMac as on my Macbook air. The only thing you have to do as “extra” is to cancel the .net 3.5 install when asked on launch of the game. The speak commands are fun as well! Calling “regroup[” or “fire” or other commands to your companions, is quite fun!

Game Description:
The Machine age has begun in this immersive and atmospheric squad-based shooter in which you need to regain control of a futuristic Tokyo from an emerging robotic threat. In Binary Domain you are set in 2080, the story starts when Dan Marshall and his squad are sent to bring the robotic community under control as they begin to infiltrate society and slowly take over undetected, leaving humans redundant in their wake. Thrilling encounters with highly intelligent robotic enemies require you to think tactically, make challenging, real-time moral decisions and build up trust with your team mates in order to guide your squad to safety and success.

Origin Activation.dll final fix!!

Ladies and Gentlemen attention please! Finally, yes finally we implanted a decent fix for the Origin activation DLL issues. In the past we needed to use specific patches to workaround that issue and even then there were some people where it still caused problems. However!! There is finally an official fix for this problem (a pre-loader) which fixes this issue once and for all! I nice extra with the new engine, is that the crash after install is fixed as well! I will test and update all Origin games this weekend and coming week. I already did the update for the games:

The rest will follow shortly. Red Alert 2 and C&C renegade have a regression in the latest Wine versions, so that still needs to be fixed before I will update these Engines. This means the games still work using the old fashioned patches, but the engine with pre-loader will follow shortly as well!

 

War of the Overworld released for Mac

War for the Overworld is the unofficial sequel/re-brand/tribute to Bullfrogs Dungeon Keeper series; Bullfrog released DK 1 & 2 then called it quits. Now some of the devs brought an unofficial sequel packed with the original voice narrator to bring a fresh new outlook on the dungeon lord game style. This game is just as fun as the original counterpart, with added game experiences. From an old school gamer; you will love this if you are into rpg and real time strategy type games.

Crysis for Mac

Awesome news! It was already on the todo list, but finally I manage to look into the Crysis game port. And with success we offer you now Crysis on Porting Kit and in Crossover! I played the game on my Medium end Intel Iris iMac for about 1.5 hours without any issues. I played at medium GFX settings and 1600 x 900 resolution. Settings may be even put to high with a 2GB Nvidia or AMD Radeon Card Mac! I tested the GOG.com Crysis source, which is normally priced DRM free for $19,99, but with the summer sale on GOG.com its -80% discounted so only $4.09! Get it cheap now and start the fun!

Game Description:
What begins as a simple rescue mission becomes the battleground of a new war, as alien invaders swarm over a North Korean island chain. Armed with a powerful Nanosuit, you must achieve your objectives by any means necessary. Become invisible to stalk enemy patrols, or boost your strength to lay waste to vehicles. An advanced AI controls your enemies, so play smart. One wrong move out here could be your last.
