Star Wars – Battlefront 2 Wrapper update!

I got some mails from people who tried to install Star Wars Battlefront 2, into Porting Kit, but it didn’t work anymore because first the setup was not automatically recognized + main exe path was changed + a new dll was required. All of this has to do with a recent update of the game on GOG.com. They released new installers with multiplayer support using GOG Galaxy (which is not available yet in Porting kit) and changed the setup files of the “Battle Front 2 Classic XP/Vista (no multiplayer)” version (which is supported in Porting Kit).

So, to play the game in Porting Kit you need to download the “Battle Front 2 Classic XP/Vista” setup files (not the ones for multiplayer) and let porting Kit install it and start the fun. We are looking to the Multiplayer Galaxy support version, but until then use the one mentioned above.

Changed:
– Fixed auto-detect GOG setup file
– Updated main path .exe
– Fixed startup issue (extra binkw32.dll required)

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky Wrapper update.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky seemed to have an issue with the launcher with the latest version of the game (asks for serial). This has been addressed and now contains 2 shortcuts. One for the Launcher and one for the main game. In the Launcher you can set language and a few more settings, while you can launch the game itself in the main game shortcut. Have fun!

Changes:
– Extra shortcut for the main game exe + fix
