Tales of Monkey Island for Mac

We have already all Monkey Island games in Porting Kit (except for Monkey Island 3 – Curse of Monkey Island because that one is native for Mac, also for Catalina).

Moments later, you’re sent flying, violently thrown through the air by the force of a massive explosion, right into a sinister, global intrigue. The coveted contents of that briefcase? A fiercely guarded manuscript penned by a clandestine medieval order – the Knights Templar. Reveal the truth behind a secret conspiracy and save the world from the Templars’ evil plan.

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.
