Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD available as port again.

The games Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD were first available as native port, but now because of people having trouble with the . “Native” version of the game, I made these 2 games back available as port again. These games are still not Catalina compatible, but as mentioned earlier, the winde development team is working hard to make a kind of work around available. Until then, Porting Kit is still not usable in Catalina OS 10.15.

I tested the 2 game ports myself a bit, and they work just great in my tests on my Mac’s.

Go to the updated game pages below, or search the games in the database library in the Porting Kit app:
Stronghold HD
Stronghold Crusader HD

Dark Devotion for Mac

I came past this game on, ported the game and runs great on my AMD Radeon iMac! The only flaw I could found is that you cannot play it full screen (see video below), but you can see the menu bar in the top. But game runs just smooth and nice. Its bin a while as well that I made a game video, so thats nice as well. Just remember to not update to Catalina yet, because of the 32-bit support drop of Mac OS 10.15. 

Game description:
Would you like to play something with tough puzzles and laughing-out-loud humour? What about something full of funny characters, featuring mind-bending plots and brain-teasing puzzles?
Help the King regain his sanity after he got turned into a raving lunatic, save the kidnapped prince and interview Queen Xina and King Bodd who have been fighting for years. You will be confronted by surprise after surprise and will have to face the most unexpected enemies. Enjoy good, old-fashioned fun for everyone.

Install is Simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the setup file from Dark Devotion from GOG (Remember to download the “offline backup setup files” into your download folder.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the game in the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!
