Dreamfall: Longest journey fixed for latest M1/M2 Models.

As you all may know we have for especially older games a “challenge” regarding the latest M1/M2 Apple Silicon Mac’s. Low Resolution games of 640×480 and 800×600 or even 1024×768 in some will not work on some of the latest M1/M2 Macs/Screens. We are working hard by using all kind of mod’s hacks, patches, to make them compatible with with latest M1/M2 Macs. This regularly takes a lot of research to make it all work properly, so that’s why I am happy introduce more and more fixes for games which are compatible to all new Macs.

Today Dreamfall – The Longest Journey is added to the list. It is patched this way that it launches in 1280×800 resolution fitting to all Macs (also M1/M2 Apple Silicon) capable to run High Sierra 10.13.x and up :) So if you love adventure games, then this one might be something for you.

Return to Mysterious Island 2 for Mac

Another adventure game has been added to Porting Kit: Return to Mysterious Island 2. The game is the successor of Mysterious Island which is also ported in Porting Kit. So if you like number 1, then you will also like the successor.

Intel based Macs:
I tested the game on my intel based Macbook Pro 2019 with AMD Radeon GFX card, and it works just flawless so far as I tested. Smooth graphics, great gameplay, really enjoyable. So for the Intel Based Macs this game is really a “must have” game if you like adventure games.

M1/M2 Apple Silicon Based Macs:
I tested the game also on my M1 Apple silicon Macbook Air on Mac OS Monterey 12.4, and it’s and it really playable, but a a little bit slower comparing to intel based Macs (but still really playable). So if you really love the game, this shouldn’t hold you back to play it on your M1 Apple silicon Mac.

Sinking Island for Mac

Finally a new game port added to Portingkit after a time of holidays :) This time the game: Sinking Island! Benoit Sokal’s Sinking Island is from the creators of Syberia 1 and 2 (which are also ported in Porting Kit). Then you know for sure you will embark in some quality adventure gaming. Really Recommend this game port.

Intel based Macs:
I tested the game on my intel based Macbook Pro 2019 with AMD Radeon GFX card, and it works just flawless so far as I tested. Smooth graphics, great gameplay, really enjoyable. So for the Intel Based Macs this game is really a “must have” game if you like (detective) adventure games.

M1/M2 Apple Silicon Based Macs:
I tested the game also on my M1 Apple silicon Macbook Air on Mac OS Monterey 12.4, and it’s (even in the new CX22 Beta1) choppy in the actual gameplay. The videos and intro’s are al just perfect, but when the game actual starts (with mouse pointer) it’s very choppy. It’s not unplayable (in lowest GFX settings) but at least that unenjoyable in my opinion to say, it’s worth waiting until a new engine/Mac OS update arrives to fix this issue.

Basic Portingkit Install Instructions GOG games:
1. Download the Sinking Island “offline backup setup” file(s) into your download folder.
2. Always read the “notes” of the game description first for additional steps!
