Gun Metal for mac

Released not long ago on GOG.com, and new added to Porting Kit: Gun Metal for Mac! The game runs very neat and is a very nice game in the way of kinda mech commander/transformers game style. You can change as mech commander to an airplane to do air battles or transform back in the middle of the fight. You are in charge! Tested the game on my Intel Macbook pro and works quite neat.

Battlefield 1942 (Origin) for Mac

While Origin is working back again in the latest engine, I am testing the Origin games one by one if they all still work, so that’s why I post the games one by one, with an “ok” that I tested them. So today the green light for Battlefield 1942! Yep it’s right, that game isn’t for sale anymore on the EA store, but if you have a legit (unused) battlefield 1942 key then you can add the game in Origin. But also for the people who have battlefield 1942 already in the past, the game can be played again :) I myself love the game and is one of the few games I play once in a while (besides medal of Honor Allied Assault and World of Tanks). Anyhow, have fun!

Origin Client install instructions:

  • Get the serial from a Battlefield 1942 cd game (make sure its not used)
  • Of course make sure you have Porting Kit and search the game in the database and press “install”
  • When the install of the origin client starts it gives a white window for about 20 seconds
    before it starts.
  • After the login window appears (also takes about 10 seconds to appear) close it so install can finish properly
  • When after install complete you log into Origin (takes 10 seconds to see the login window), in the settings turn off “in-game origin” (app settings –> more –> in-game origin) before launching a game.
  • Video tutorial you can find here… (for Red Alert 2 (Origin) but works the same way)

 
Game Description:
Armed with the knowledge and experience from the spiritual predecessor Codename Eagle, the studio set out to create the game of their dreams. Building upon and vastly refining the ideas from Codename Eagle, Battlefield 1942 let players engage in infantry combat and get behind the wheel of a variety of vehicles from submarines to battleships and bombers. The game introduced the signature Battlefield rock-paper-scissors gameplay, as well as the exciting “Battlefield Moments” people refer to when talking about their unique and unscripted experiences within the multiplayer game.

Battlefield 1942 (Origin) for Mac

Red Alert 2 + Yuri’s Revenge (Origin) for Mac are back!!!

Awesome news! As promised, I would bring back the Origin games and Ubisoft games and more with the new CX21 engine. And tonight past weekend I did a lot of preparations, and today I re-introduce the Origin version of Red Alert 2 and Yuri’s Revenge. Yes, the rest of the series are worked on as well, but I will introduce every Origin game separately day by day because I want it to be tested properly first.

So here we are :) I made a new video about the installation process and the settings you need to do in Origin itself. I tested and played Red Alert 2 Yuri’s revenge on my intel Mac 2019 on Mac OS Monterey 12.0.1 :) C&Cnet multiplayer support/integration will follow soon. I first want to add the rest of the series first. Enjoy the video and the game.

Rayman Origins for Mac

We had a small setback that the new engine has a small bug regarding installing Winetricks, but we made a workaround for that by changing the engine to the the new CX21 one AFTER the specific wintricks are done. When the fixed CX21 arrives we can simply remove that step again. So past weekend I could get some stuff done (yes all Origin games are tested and working again…release this week :)) But we start with Rayman Origins! Yes, that one was native for Mac up till Catalina, but we made a port for the GOG.com version of the game which makes it compatible for Mac OS 10.15.x and higher. So yes, also for Monterey 12.x.
