Arma Gold for Mac

Yes! it’s back on GOG.com and it’s back in the Porting Kit database: Arma Gold for Mac! The game is one of the 4 games (just as Arma Cold War Assault), which has been back on GOG.com.

It has lots of options and its quite realistic in a way (not graphicly), but it is quite intelligent. Feel free to play it yourself, it’s only 1,59 at the moment on GOG.com you won’t regret it :).

Outlaws + handfull of missions port updated!

Outlaws + handfull of missions port updated!

A quick heads up. Thanks to an email (notifying me about the bug) of a Porting Kit user, I fixed a Outlaws + Handfull of missions because it had a game update of GOG.com. This GOG.com update of the game caused that when you launched the game after install, you only got a menu window with an option to install or exit the game. This bug was only present when you installed the game since the update of the game.

This problem has now been fixed and now you can play this awesome old game in it’s full glory even on Mac OS Catalina 10.15.x.

Game description:
In SimCity 4, you don’t just build your city, you breathe life into it. Create a megalopolis by weaving together a tapestry of cities ranging from a bedroom community to a high tech urban center or a vacation destination to a farming village. You can create a region of interconnected cities sharing and competing for resources that are linked by a fully integrated transportation network. Use “god-like” powers to create mountain ranges, carve valleys, and lay rivers to construct the most realistic metropolis imaginable. The new simulation engine offers immediate feedback so you can react to the needs of an expanding metropolis.

A new, seemingly unstoppable enemy, supported by the zealots of The Order, now seeks to eradicate mankind; UEF, Aeon Loyalist, and Cybran alike. With their backs against the wall and staring into the abyss, the tattered remnants of Humanity’s forces must put aside old hatreds and band together as they prepare to make one last desperate stand. One last chance. An alliance forged in blood, steel and hope, they turn to face the dark.
