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!

Submarine Titans for Mac

Today I announce Submarine Titans for Mac! Porting Kit is for most part Compatible with Catalina now. So I can keep myself occupied with game porting again :)  Submarine Titans (GOG.com version) is now added in Porting Kit app and I also tested it with Catalina (with SIP disabled for now) and works great! The game run very smooth on my end. So really recommend this game when you like strategy games. The game has lots of similarities with games like Red Alert 2 and C&C but then pinpointed to an underwater world.

Game description Submarine Titans for Mac:
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.
