Gabriel Knight – Sins of Our Fathers for Mac

For tonight another great classic adventure game: Gabriel Knight – Sins of our Fathers! Gabriel Knight – Sins of Our Fathers for Mac works great out of the box and works great for as well in porting kit as in Crossover (a indispensable application to run aside Porting Kit!). Enjoy this awesome classic GEM!

The adventure of Gabriel Knight – Sins of our Fathers starts with gathering materials for his new book, and ends up becoming a fight for his very soul. During his investigation he discovers that he is the heir to the title of “Schattenjäger”, or “Shadow Hunter”, which has been passed down in his family from generation to generation since times long forgotten. He must now face countless dangers in New Orleans, Africa and Germany, each bringing him ever closer to unraveling the mystery behind suspicious voodoo murders. Haunted by nightmares, he won’t give up until he reveals the truth.

In this “full-talkie” version of one of the best horror adventure games ever created you can listen to over 7,300 lines of recorded dialogue performed by professional actors including Mark Hamill and Tim Curry. Allow yourself to be sucked into this amazing neo-Gothic story full of dark secrets, nightmares and tons of atmosphere!

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

Download the Portingkit up here… or when you own Crossover the Crosstie here…

Crossover 14 released!

Crossover had a mayor update a few days back to version 14 already! If you don’t know the product Crossover, check the about page on my site to see what the program is and does. It is commercial software, but they made Wine as it is today, so supporting them by buying the software will increase development of the opensource software Wine. You can update crossover when own it already when the message popups to update the software (if your license didn’t expired already). If you want to update it you can buy it up here… and with the promo code paulthetall you get 25% off as a bonus :)  I will make a video tutorial soon with the changes of the new GUI, because a lot of changed in Crossover 14. See all improvements and changes below

Mac OSX:
CrossOver’s Graphical User Interface has been entirely redone. Windows applications can now be easily launched from within CrossOver itself, and much of the rest of the user interface has been simplified.The CrossOver Software Installer more prominently displays all search results when a user searches for an application to install, making it easier to find the desired application.

Application Support:
New Supported Applications:
CrossOver now supports Quicken 2015 on both OS X and Linux.
CrossOver now supports Cube World on both OS X and Linux.
CrossOver now supports Path of Exile on both OS X and Linux.

Bug fixes:

Formatting of message timestamps in Outlook 2010 has been improved.
Many games – Deus Ex: Human Revolution – no longer require the Legacy X Window System to run on OS X. CrossOver’s built-in web browser has improved and now loads more sites, including the U-Haul website and the website for the United States Copyright Office. Steam can now be hidden reliably on OS X. Legacy Family Tree 7 will now run under CrossOver on OS X. Printing will now work when MathType is installed alongside Word 2007.

Other Improvements:
CrossOver 14.0.0 is based on Wine 1.7.25 which includes over 5,000 patches that fix bugs and add greater Windows compatibility.

Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion for the Mac!

Guess what? Yes, here is; Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, that’s the successor of  Sins of a Solar Empire which I posted a few moments ago. Yup there are some nice games in the pipeline. While I am testing and creating CrossTies of existing game ports, I am testing some new games as well which of course results in some new port  as well :) Watch the original video trailer below to get an impression of the game-play! Enjoy!

While many were hopeful that diplomacy would finally end the war, differing opinions on what should be done, along with the depleted power of the controlling factions, has led to a splintering of the groups involved. The loyalist members of the Trader Emergency Coalition adopt a policy of isolation, focusing on enhanced defenses to ride out the rest of the war. Those who rebel against the coalition take on a purely militant view, coming to the opinion that the only way to bring peace is by ultimately crushing all who oppose them – especially xenos.

Sins of a Solar Empire for the Mac

Space strategy is the focus for today!  We start with Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity . This game is available on Gamersgate and this new bundle pack includes the original Sins of a Solar Empire, plus the Entrenchment and Diplomacy expansions. The game works nicely using Crossover in my tests. If you don’t know the game then the trailer below will introduce you with it.

Sins of a Solar Empire is an innovative real-time strategy game featuring seamless transition between epic strategy and tactical combat modes, initiating what is already becoming known as the RT4X sub-genre. A galaxy of intriguing aliens, powerful starships, and colossal planets comes to life with stunning 3D graphics, unparalleled sense of scale, and a cinematic musical score. Explore and conquer nearby planets and distant solar systems by applying brute force, cunning strategy, elegant diplomacy, economic mastery, and researched technology.

Crossover Advocates Wave!

Crossover Advocates Wave!

I got a IM and email from Crossover that they are totally overwelmed with requests to become and advocate. Those are hundreds a week! They cannot manage the demand. Most of them are just becoming an advocate to use the program freely and do nothing for Crossover. This is not entirely the meaning of becoming an advocate. Because I “Advertise” to become an advocate when you have no money, so you can use the program free of charge, they asked me to delete that sentence (what I did now) to avoid the overwhelming wave of  voluntering “advocates” which do nothing. Does this mean that there is no way to become an advocate anymore? No, there is, but only for the people who are really attending to dedicate time for Crossover. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

New Project Feature: JogoBox for the Mac! (Update)

Update: Problem is resolved now, and the updated Crosstie is up as well! A video tutorial of the usage of this great program will be up in a few hours!

[Edit] 14:00 – I put the crosstie offline for a change I made (fix keyboard input issue), needs to be approved again, so Crosstie will be up again in a few hours [edit]

Great news! I already told you that I was working on somthing this weekend and here is the announcement: Jogobox hits the paulthetall.com surface! What the heck is JogoBox? Well, they advertise this: Choose from a selection of thousands of free games and play for as long as you like! Whether you prefer racing games, fighting games, puzzle games or girl games, in JogoBox you can quickly find something to your tastes from the different categories. Jogobox not only features the newest browser games, but also fully installable PC games. Whether you are looking for the newest Flash games or want to return to the golden age of classic PC gaming, in Jogobox you’ll find the perfect games and install them in no time.

All the DOS games will work great as well for most Windows games mentioned there. However, a few games might need a proper setup, for those games will be a seperate CrossTie in the future. Because this only counts for a couple of the games and the rest just runs awesome, you can use the main program for almost all games!

I created for this program a special page: “JogoBox Games” which you can find under the top bar menu named: “Projects”. You can get this Jogobox running using Crossover. I made a CrossTie for it which is online now as well. Have fun with this awesome program as I have now!

Oh no! More CrossTies!

This weekend I created and tested about 16 more CrossTies which now needs to be approved by the Crossover “Ninja’s”. I expect that  they will be approved today so I can put them up on the website here tomorrow. I have here a couple of CrossTies I did last week and which got approved last Friday. There are 2 nice automatic download and install CrossTies (Demos which can be unlocked to full version using a legal serial) included which will make it a walk through the park to play it in Crossover. When I count the 16 of tomorrow and the ones I have already done together, then I have done a 100 CrossTies! So thats about a sixth of all game ports on my website! And this in nearly 2 weeks time. So if I advance this trend I hope to have the whole database trasnformed in 2 months :) Of course new games will be added as well and the first new one will follow tomorrow.
