Hexplore for Mac

I have ported this weekend 3 more games which are also of course tested in Catalina OS 10.15.x, lets start with Hexplore for Mac! Although the GOG.com game was also available for Linux, it was not for Mac. So with this game added into Porting Kit the game is now also playable for Mac! The game works just fine when I tested it on Catalina, so that’s good news for Mac OS Catalina users. Enjoy!

Game description:
Immerse yourself in a medieval world. A world where Garkham, Grand Master of the Black Magicians, has sworn to take possession of the Book of Hexplore. From this moment, the whole world is in great peril. For this manuscript will most certainly lead those who find it to the Garden of Eden, resting place of the Divine Power.

For Catalina users: Make sure SIP is disabled and that the Porting Kit app is located in your Apps/Application folder. If you want SIP to be enabled, I strongly recommend Crossover for now for the time being

Basic Portingkit Install Instructions GOG games:
1. Make sure you have downloaded the Portingkit app or use Crossover.
2. Always read the “notes” of the game description first for additional steps!
3. Download the Hexplore “offline backup setup” file into your (root) download folder.
4. Go to the library server tab and select the game you want to install and click “Install”
5. Porting Kit will create the wrapper and locate your setup file in your download folder
6. The installation of the game will start, run through the install wizard.
7. After installation, exit the installer (don’t run launch the game).
8. Porting kit will say it has finished successfully.
9. Go to your local library tab and select the game and click “play”!
10. Enjoy the game!

Jagged Alliance 2 and Jagged Alliance Wildfire for Mac (Catalina OS)

After a time of testing of existing ports and handling with issues with Porting Kit within Catalina 10.15.x OS. I can finally focus on some new game ports. So yesterday I added Jagged Alliance 2 and Jagged Alliance 2 – Wildfire to the Porting Kit which is Catalina Compatible. The old GOG.com version is not compatible anymore and was malfunctioning. That’s why I made these ports available again in Porting Kit. I tested both games for a bit and works brilliantly :)

Game description:
Jagged Alliance 2 features: perfect blend of strategy, roleplaying and tactical combat; dozen of new weapons; 150+ individual in-game characters; realistic combat physics; and more than 10,000 lines of digitalized speech. The only thing missing is YOU. 

For Catalina users: Make sure SIP is disabled and that the Porting Kit app is located in your Apps/Application folder. If you want SIP to be enabled, I strongly recommend Crossover for now for the time being

Basic Portingkit Install Instructions GOG games:
1. Make sure you have downloaded the Portingkit app or use Crossover.
2. Always read the “notes” of the game description first for additional steps!
3. Download the Jagged Alliance 2 or Jagged Alliance 2 – Wildfire “offline backup setup” file into your (root) download folder.
4. Go to the library server tab and select the game you want to install and click “Install”

6. The installation of the game will start, run through the install wizard.

Heroes Might & Magic1 + 2 Gold Massive speed improvement (fix).

Good news. We had complaints of people mentioning that Heroes Might and Magic and Heroes Might and Magic 2 Gold was quite slow (low performance). Well this fix brings light and day difference in the game. So if you own the game already, reinstall and enjoy the game and if you wanna try the games out get the games on GOG.com here… and here… Have fun!

Changes:
– Massive speed/performance improvements.

Tested the games on both Catalina (SIP disabled) and Mojave and High Sierra. All work great.

Might of Magic 8 game port fixed.

It seemed that Might of Magic 8 had a bug crashing Porting Kit while installation of the game. The cause of the issue was the custom Wineskin not supporting X11 anmore. We addressed the problem by making the game Macdriver compatible using “Software 3D” rendering of the game. This in combination with “GDI” Directdraw rendering, the game now is fully install-able and playable again :) An important setting is now required to do in the game “configuration utility”. You need to select “Software 3D” and keeping the “full screen” option in tact before launching the game in order to play the game properly.

When you search the game now in the Porting Kit database, you will find that the game has the usual “updated” badge visible in the game icon.  Have fun!

In the year 2047.  A massive comet ravages Earth’s surface and the remnants of mankind descend to the bottom of the ocean in order to survive. A century passes, and humans, resilient and enduring, slowly create new life in their cool blue underwater universe. But even in the still of the deep, one truth remains… where man goes, war soon follows. The craddle of civilization has spawned the seeds of man’s destruction and now all the oceans of the world are not big enough for the embattled civilizations of the power-hungry White Sharks, the technologically savvy Black Octopi and the alien Silicons. Deploy armies, research technologies, mine for resources and set in motion a plan to gain control of this spellbinding abyss or find the fate of civilization and mankind dead in the water.
