Over 25 Steam wrapper updates with Steam Store/Chat fixes.

Good news. I updated over 25 Steam games wrappers which contains fixes for the Steam Store and Steam Chat! I already talked about that 2 weeks back, and made then a few updates, but now over 25 most popular Steam Wrappers have been updated. It is always hard to maintain changes which the Game Client publishers do (Steam/Origin/Uplay/GOG Galaxy). And we always try to keep up, but this is not always possible due to Wine developing (not fixed in Wine yet) or due to lack of time (we not getting to it to fix because of lack of time).

Anyways, I worked down the list from popular games to less popular games. The Wrapper upgrades do not only contain fixes of Steam, but may also improve performance and have bugfixes. If your game(s) is/are in the list I advise to backup the existing wrapper somewhere and delete it in Porting Kit and reinstall the updated port. Enjoy!

List of updated Steam wrappers:
Max Payne
Max Payne 2
Elderscrolls III – Morrowind
Sniper Ghost Warrior 2
Southpark Stick of Truth
Call of Duty – World at War
Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2
Payday the Heist
Payday 2
Pro Evolution Soccer 2016
Pro Evolution Soccer 2017
Final Fantasy III
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
NBA 2k14
Sid Meier’s Civilization 3
Knights of Honor
Company of Heroes
Hitman IV – Blood Money
ARMA 2
Stronghold Collection
Supreme Commander
Supreme Commander 2
Supreme Commander – Forged Aliance
Dishonored

Have fun with the updated wrappers. The ports will contain an “updated” badge in the Porting Kit.

Hard Truck 2 King of the Road for Mac

Simulator lovers I have good news. Hard Truck 2 King of the Road for Mac, has been added to Porting Kit. The game was recently added to the GOG.com catalog, so that was reason to check the game out and with success! Game is fully ported in it’s glory with only one small limitation…the resolution. Normally you can choose from 4 resolutions from which 1 in widescreen. That resolution somehow doesn’t work, and max resolution is 1024×768, which of course is fine as well. A small price to pay for being able to play all the classic glory times again.  is

Game description:
Go head to head with the competition and try to be the first to deliver your cargo. It’s all in a days work when you’re driving the big rigs. From small trucks to 18 wheelers, you’ll pilot the cabs that keep this country truckin’. Bid on jobs, manage your money, and keep on the right side of John Q. Law if you want to succeed in this racket.

  • 12 Different Trucks including 18 wheel big rigs.
  • Speed traps with police car chases and helicopter pursuits.
  • Special effects like exhaust, tire marks, fog and blinding sun.
