Porting Kit 2.7 released!

Hello everyone! Here is VitorMM! I’m here to talk about the last Porting Kit release, which is filled with news. The last time I posted about an update was almost three months ago, with PK 2.6, so there are plenty of things to talk about.

FROM PORTING CENTER TO THE PORTING KIT
One of the main news is that we are moving all the Porting Center features to the Porting Kit slowly. Eventually, the Porting Center is going to be fully replaced by the Porting Kit. With that, features that belonged to PC will keep evolving in the same rate as PK features.

DRM CLIENTS (STEAM, ORIGIN, UPLAY AND GOG GALAXY)
We also had some problems with Steam, Origin and Uplay during that meanwhile. In case you missed that, you must have the Porting Kit 2.6.84 or superior to install a port with any of these guys. From that version on, PK should check the method to install them on our website, so DRM clients should not need any PK updates to work (for now, at least). Also, we finally managed to have out first 64Bit GOG Galaxy port, which was a great achievement :)

STABILITY
Due to lots of hard work, one of the focus during that transition was to keep PK stable as stable as possible, and so we did. Most of the changes in 2.6 were improvements and fixes, so the Porting Kit can give the best experience as possible.

LEGACY VERSION RELEASE
That’s what you heard! Porting Kit 2.7 have a legacy version release as well! And it comes with a great new for legacy users: with a new method developed by me, delivering the legacy version releases should be much faster now! So Porting Kit Legacy won’t be as outdated as it was before!

Now, be aware: the last Legacy release was almost one year ago. I’ve made a few tests in the Legacy version. It’s functional, however I can’t say if it’s completely stable yet. So if you see any error, or anything abnormal in Porting Kit Legacy, let we know in the forum or by mail ;)

That’s it! Thanks for reading and until next time!

For the basic instructions for the Portingkit installation go here…

And in case you use macOS 10.6 or 10.7, get the Legacy version instead, right here…

Uplay games fixed!

Another awesome news! Because of an update of Uplay, all the Uplay games didn’t work anymore because of the Uplay client had massive font and GUI issues. Luckily we have not much Uplay Client games, but still there are a few very popular ones. Although that problem itself is not fixed, we found out a workaround with an older Uplay client version which made the Uplay Client work again and won’t update to a later version automatically :D

This fix have been applied now on al Uplay games! So now you can play the awesome games like: Anno 2070, Silent Hunter IV, Assassin’s Creed Revelation and Rayman Legends and others again!! I tested Anno 2070 and Rayman Legends, and they all work as attended again. Enjoy!

Also now I am writing anyways, make sure you update to latest version of Porting Kit (new update since yesterday), because it has another bunch of nice updates (not required for the Uplay fix but recommended).

Panzer General 3D Assault for Mac

Another nice strategy game has been added to Porting Kit: Panzer General 3D Assault for Mac!

The past few days we have ported Sudden Strike Gold and Sudden Strike 2 Gold, and now Sudden Strike 3 as well!

I tested both games and while Arms for Victory works perfectly on my low-end Macbook air, I found in The last Stand a small bug which causes no “voice sound”  in the briefing. Sounds in-game works just fine. Have fun!
