Dungeon Keeper 2 Fixed for Apple Silicon Macs

Fixed another classic game for M1 Apple Silicon Macs: Dungeon Keeper 2. Dungeon Keeper 2 is everything its predecessor was, only better and badder! It is probably one of the most addictive and fun games ever created; with tons of dark humor, smooth gameplay, and high replayability value. The game gave an error message when launching, but this has now been fixed.

Unreal Tournament GOY updated for M1 Apple Silicon Macs!

Another game tested and updated for the M1 Apple Silicon: Unreal Tournament! I am still planning for making a gameplay video, but that one will follow within a few days. Christmas time, so I will be a bit more occupied with that :) To make it work for M1 Apple silicon, you do need to do a special action which is now also mentioned in the game description. After install you need to set a specific “device”.

When you press play and get into the launcher, click “change your 3d video device” –> “show all devices” –> click the “open GL support” option.  Then next, next, run. In the game itself you can change your resolution to widescreen. To 1440×900 for example.

Battlefield 1942 (Origin) for Mac

While Origin is working back again in the latest engine, I am testing the Origin games one by one if they all still work, so that’s why I post the games one by one, with an “ok” that I tested them. So today the green light for Battlefield 1942! Yep it’s right, that game isn’t for sale anymore on the EA store, but if you have a legit (unused) battlefield 1942 key then you can add the game in Origin. But also for the people who have battlefield 1942 already in the past, the game can be played again :) I myself love the game and is one of the few games I play once in a while (besides medal of Honor Allied Assault and World of Tanks). Anyhow, have fun!

Origin Client install instructions:

  • Get the serial from a Battlefield 1942 cd game (make sure its not used)
  • Of course make sure you have Porting Kit and search the game in the database and press “install”
  • When the install of the origin client starts it gives a white window for about 20 seconds
    before it starts.
  • After the login window appears (also takes about 10 seconds to appear) close it so install can finish properly
  • When after install complete you log into Origin (takes 10 seconds to see the login window), in the settings turn off “in-game origin” (app settings –> more –> in-game origin) before launching a game.
  • Video tutorial you can find here… (for Red Alert 2 (Origin) but works the same way)

 
Game Description:
Armed with the knowledge and experience from the spiritual predecessor Codename Eagle, the studio set out to create the game of their dreams. Building upon and vastly refining the ideas from Codename Eagle, Battlefield 1942 let players engage in infantry combat and get behind the wheel of a variety of vehicles from submarines to battleships and bombers. The game introduced the signature Battlefield rock-paper-scissors gameplay, as well as the exciting “Battlefield Moments” people refer to when talking about their unique and unscripted experiences within the multiplayer game.

C&C Renegade (Origin) for Mac

Aaand number 3 of the Origin C&C Ultimate Collection series: C&C Renegade for Mac! Tested the game on my Macbook Pro 2019 and works great! You can adjust the resolution of the game to your liking after installation of the game in origin using the wwconfig.exe. This is an action you need to do manually which is described in the port description. With no adjustment of the resolution the game launches in the default 800×600. Enjoy!

Origin Client install instructions:

  • Get the C&C Ultimate collection cheap up here…
  • When the install of the origin client starts it gives a white window for about 20 seconds
    before it starts.
  • After the login window appears (also takes about 10 seconds to appear) close it so install can finish properly
  • When after install complete you log into Origin (takes 10 seconds to see the login window), in the settings turn off “in-game origin” (app settings –> more –> in-game origin) before launching a game.
  • Video tutorial you can find here… (for Red Alert 2 (Origin) but works the same way)

 
Game Description:
Renegade’s story takes place during the final days of the First Tiberius War originally depicted in Command & Conquer. GDI’s top three Tiberius research specialists have been abducted by the Brotherhood of Nod. The player assumes the role of GDI commando Captain Nick “Havoc” Parker, who is assigned to rescue these experts. He conducts missions which take him all over the world in various countries and climates, both indoor and outdoor, and his actions greatly affect the current state of the war. As the game progresses it is revealed that the specialists have been forced into biochemistry research for the Brotherhood’s top secret “Project Re-Genesis”, an attempt to create genetically enhanced super-soldiers with the aid of Tiberius.

Hover! (Win95) for Mac

I am happy to inform you that the free Hover! (Windows 95) for Mac has been added to Porting Kit! Who doesn’t know this this old classic on the Windows 95 machines? I remember when we got out Pentium 100 in the end of the nineties which included this game. Never though I would play this classic again (didn’t remember the name of the game) until I recently saw it again. I thought, this classic should added to Porting Kit just as I did with the classic Pinball game “Space Cadet“, (which is also freely available in Porting Kit) because these games are still very popular.

Basic Portingkit Install Instructions free games:
1. Go to the library server tab and select the game you want to install and click “Install”
2. Portingkit will create the wrapper and download the game and install it into porting Kit.
3. After installation, exit the installer (don’t run launch the game).
4. Porting kit will say it has finished successfully.
5. Go to your local library tab and select the game and click “play”!
6. Enjoy the game!

Game Description:
For each level, Hover! will cycle through each of the three mazes, or randomly select one (if that option is set). The goal of each level is to capture all of the blue flags hidden throughout the level (playing as the red hovercraft), before the opposing (blue) team collects all of the red flags. A game starts with having 3 red flags and 3 blue flags in each level, but will go up to 6 flags of each color in higher levels. Higher levels also have more opposing hovercraft and a more difficult AI.

The opponent hovercraft are split into two groups: One group acts as the capture team, trying to secure all the red flags before the player collects all the blue flags, while the other group serves as the protection for the capture team, trying to defend their flags and prevent the player from interfering with the capture team’s efforts. If one of those hovercraft see the player, a tone will sound, like a sonar ping, indicating they’ve seen him and will move to attack.
