Diablo for Mac

On many request! We finally can bring you Diablo for Mac! Diablo 2 was already available in Porting Kit and Crossover, and Diablo 3 is already native for Mac. But now the series is complete! The Game CD/Image is required to be in the drive/mounted in order to play. Diablo works unfortunatly only in Porting Kit for now, but this may change in the next release of Crossover. There are a few side-notes for the game, see below:

– Choose install play (not the other one or the start exe won’t be correct)
– Install the game in “c:” when asked. (or also the start exe won’t be correctly)
– Game menu has some major glitches, but just start the game, and in-game it will be fine.
– Have fun!

Monkey Island 4 Mac

Great news for the Monkey Island fans! We added  Monkey Island 4 Mac just now! The cool thing about this port, is the use of the “Quick and Easy” software for Monkey Island 4. Porting Kit will download the special quick and easy software installer which will install the game into the wrapper. The install contains a special launcher which as well makes it possible to play it without CD and to play it in higher resolutions.

Game description:
Escape from Monkey Island continues in the hilarious tradition of its critically hailed and award-winning predecessors, The Secret of Monkey Island, Monkey Island 2: Le Chuck’s Revenge, and The Curse of Monkey Island. Developed by the team who created LucasArts’s irreverent classic Sam and Max Hit the Road, Escape features an original cinematic story full of drama, intrigue, and of course, sidesplitting humor. The game is highlighted by hundreds of challenging puzzles, set amidst dozens of rich and brilliantly rendered backgrounds.

Monkey Island 4 Mac

Age of Mythology added to Porting Kit!

On many request! Age of Mythology is added to Porting Kit. I don’t own the expansion of the game, so for now the main game only. Game works great! Enjoy this old gem. Oh, multiplayer works fine as well using LAN and thus should also work online using Hamachi.

The classic real time strategy game that transports players to a time when heroes did battle with monsters of legend and the gods intervened in the affairs of mortals.  Use mythological creatures like Minotaurs and Cyclopes to bolster your armies’ strength. Call upon the gods for assistance in flattening enemy towns with meteors or scatter opposing troops with lightning storms.

Battlefield 2142 for Mac!

Awesome news for the Battlefield fans! Battlefield 2142 (DVD version) has been added to Porting Kit and works awesome using the profile offered by battlefieldsingleplayer.com! This way you can play offline single player! Tested the game for 30 minutes without issues! Enjoy!

The year is 2142 and the dawn of a new Ice age has thrown the world into a panic. The soil not covered by ice can only feed a fraction of the Earth’s population. The math is simple and brutal: some will live, most will die.  In Battlefield 2142™, players choose to fight for one of two military superpowers – the European Union or the newly formed Pan Asian Coalition -in an epic battle for survival.  Armed with a devastating arsenal of hi-tech weaponry, including assault rifles, cloaking devices and sentry guns, players will also take control of the most lethal vehicles known to man.

Because online services are down, in order to play the game you need to add a profile to your documents folder. Download the profile offered by battlefieldsingleplayer.com, up here… and move the Battlefield 2142 profile folder to your documents folder. Now when you launch the game you will have the option for offline play and can play single player games and normally also multiplayer using LAN or Hamachi (not tested).

Army Men – Air Attack for Mac!

Armin Rosu was so kind to sent some WSI files for the CD games of Army Men. I ran into the CD game Army Men Air Attack last Saturday, so I could test and Port the game using his sent in WSI file, and it works great! It works even without the CD after a full install of the game. So get the Army Men game out of the closet and enjoy the nostalgia again on your Mac! Have fun! The new Porting Kit page for the game can be found here…

In Army Men: Air Attack, the evil Tan army is making a move into Green territory. Take command of Blade and his ragtag crew of chopper pilots as they fly one of four choppers Huey, Chinook, Super Stallion, or Apache through 16 missions of plastic carnage. Help them maneuver through perilous settings like the “Backyard” and the “Picnic.” When you get tired of seeing your buddies melted on the barbecue, call a friend to help you in the Cooperative Play mode. If sharing is not your thing, knock your friend’s chopper out of the sky in a head-to-head match up. Either way, with Army Men: Air Attack, it is real combat with plastic men.

As promised a re-release of the Wrapper of the game Pirates of the Caribbean for Mac. Go on adventure as Captain Nathaniel Hawk and fulfill your quests! This tutorial is for the CD version of the game and works fine. The video tutorial I put below is a very old one from the old days :) So don’t look at the graphics of the site, but use it purely for the installation process which is still the same. It is written down below as well. Have fun!

Before downloading the Wrapper, make sure security settings are set correctly when you have Mavericks OSX or higher. Then download and extract Wrapper below –> put CD 1 of the Windows game in the drive or use an external CD drive –> double-click wrapper –> install windows software –> navigate to the setup file of the CD and double-click on it –> then the install wizard will appear –> install the game –> at the end select Config.exe (when asked) and click “Exit”. Now double-click the wrapper to open the config window of the game and play! Have fun!

Pirates of the Caribbean is an action role-playing game in which the player, as Captain Nathaniel Hawk, goes on a series of quests for any one of the countries that control the islands of the Caribbean in the 17th Century. The player can buy new ships, recruit a crew and hire officers who will follow Hawk on his quest and help him in battle.
