Hitman Absolution for Mac

Yep, we keep them coming…another DXVK game has been ported to Mac: Hitman Absolution for Mac. So If you like the Hitman series, then this one cannot be missed in your collection. I played the first level/tutorial on my Macbook Pro (intel) without issues. You need Porting Kit 4 beta to install and play the Hitman game. Tested the game on Apple Silicon and there it give some sound issues (stutter sound in-game), so for Apple Silicon it needs some improvement.

I also created a video tutorial with some gameplay which you can watch below. Don’t look to much to the sluggishness of the gameplay, that’s because of the screencapturing program and the high settings. When testing the game with some vide adjustment and without screen capture it works quite well.

Game description:
A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. Crippled by a devastating EMP strike, the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic. Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs. This is a police state where high school stadiums have become detention centers, and shopping malls shelter armored attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners… or collaborators… or revolutionaries.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. COP and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky wrapper updates.

Someone mentioned to us that there was an issue with the games: STALKER Call of Pripyat  and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky. The games wouldn’t launch anymore after install. After investigation, it seems that the ports had still the Directx9 Winetrick which has been decommissioned, and needed to be replaced with the “d3dx9” and “directmusic” Winetrick. After this had been done the games now run as attended again. So if you have issues with these games recently in the past with Porting Kit, then please reinstall these games again from the database. You will notice the icons contain an “updated” badge (for coming 2 weeks).

Changes:
– Fixed a Winetrick issue with Directx9 (replaced with d3dx9 and directmusic)

Spec Ops The Line for Mac

Spec Ops The Line for Mac is a must have game if you like action! The game was years back also released for Mac, but since Catalina (or earlier) the game stopped working native for Mac. So yeah, here it is! Playable for Catalina 10.15.x and even Big Sur 11+ OS. The game is tested and works very well. Played for about an hour on quite high settings without issues.
