Important Porting Kit update!

Important Porting Kit update!

Because of a website problem with Portingkit.com , there was an update necessary which caused the Porting Kit to disfunction. WSI file didn’t install anymore. So we were forced to update the porting kit as well with a fix. So this results into a message in your Porting Kit that you need to update PK in order to use the app properly.

The exact message is: “Your Porting Kit version is too outdated for downloading ports from the Porting Kit database. In order to install apps from the server tab properly, update the Porting Kit.”

Update the app by “check for updates” using the porting kit menu in top bar menu. Sorry for the inconvenience!

News about High Sierra Compatible Wineskin ports GOG.com.

News about High Sierra Compatible Wineskin ports GOG.com.

As promised, more news about the High Sierra non-compatible Wineskin ports on GOG.com. I received the good news from GOG, that they will update their game ports (about 25+ games) which are at the moment not compatible for High Sierra. The “initial-tentative-don’t-hold-us-to-it ETA” could be before end of the month :) I added before the news was out already 9 High Sierra+ compatible game ports into Porting Kit, so you can play those games in High Sierra. The games are: Nox, Mob Rule Classic, Space Colony HD, Shell Shock 2Icewind Dale 2 Complete, Planescape Torment Enhanced Edition, The Temple of Elemental Evil, and Lords of Realms 1 + 2. The Porting Kit ports will still be available if you want to use it instead of the Mac ports of GOG.com and ready for the near future.

Yes near future, because the GOG.com update will hold the dam for Wineskin only for a while, because when 10.14 arrives all apps needs to be 64bit and wineskin will be most likely at its end because development stopped ages ago. However! There is good news from us. We are building a new Wineskin like app which we will call “Prism” which will have a total new framework and 64bit and adapted to Porting Kit, loads of new and cool features and of course free for personal use :)

Game description:
It is 1930. Due to circumstances he couldn’t possibly have predicted, Tommy’s life as a cabdriver is about to be exchanged for a life in the Mafia. At first he continues his work as a driver and nothing could be better. He soon becomes good friends with his sidekicks Paulie and Sam, and although the work is sometimes risky, he earns more money than he did as a cabdriver. But as time goes on he is ordered to undertake more and more unpleasant jobs – and he starts to become disillusioned with the life he has chosen.

Blitzkrieg 2 Wrapper update and 2 extra expansion ports!

I updated the Blitzkrieg 2 Anthology port. It was split up by GOG.com in 3 separate installers: Blitzkrieg 2, Blitzkrieg 2 – Liberation and Blitzkrieg 2 – Fall of the Reich.

Whats new?
– Fix of the main game path + setup file detect
– 2 new game ports for the 2 expansions Liberation + Fall of the Reich
