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)

Super Huey III for Mac

You like nostalgic arcade simulators? Well, Super Huey III for Mac may fit in that category. This game port works great and gives a lot of fun. Tested that game for a while (couple of missions) on my Macbook pro with Big Sur, and had some fun :) This entertaining GOG.com game is only $5,99 and I have to say that the creators of the game did a good job trying to bring back the nostalgie of it.

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. A good (medium/High end) Mac is recommended to have the best experience.

Metal Gear Solid 2 – Substance GOG.com source added to Porting Kit + new video tutorial!

As promised here also Metal Gear 2 Substance + a new updated video tutorial! Metal Gear 2 Substance has also reached the GOG.com database. And yes yes, I will also still look into the MSX version and to the other Konami collection of Contra and Castlevania. The game has been tested on Mac OS Mojave and Big Sur and on Mojave it has a slight sound distortion in codec conversations, but it didn’t had it Big Sur (so also not in Catalina).

Solid Snake returns in Metal Gear Solid 2® Substance, the ultimate edition of Metal Gear Solid ® 2: Sons of Liberty, with all-new game modes, hidden characters, and storylines. Top-secret weapons technology is being mysteriously transported under cover of an oil tanker to an unknown location. Armed with an arsenal of new weapons, supplies and stealth maneuvers, it’s up to Snake to infiltrate the transport and keep this deadly weapon of mass destruction from falling into the wrong hands!

Oh, and again the game will of course also work and install in Porting Kit 3.0. Enjoy the game and enjoy the video and I have to say….get this game instanly on GOG.com and start playing! :)
