Pacific Assault GOG.com version added to Porting Kit/Crossover!

Great news! Medal of Honor – Pacific Assault arrived DRM free on GOG.com! Because of this I added the GOG.com version to Porting Kit and Crossover! The GOG.com version is advised over the Origin version because Origin is a game client where you first need to login to in order to play. So GOG.com version is always recommended above game client version as Uplay/Origin and Steam.

Medal of Honor – Pacific Assault puts you in the boots of a WWII soldier in the Pacific Theater of Operations. As Marine Private Tommy Conlin, you must survive the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor and then join the Allied crusade to defeat Imperial Japan’s bloody conquest of the Pacific. From the attack at Pearl Harbor to the pivotal battle against Japanese Forces at Tarawa Island, Medal of Honor Pacific Assault gives PC gamers a sense of the courage it took to endure and overcome the Japanese threat in WWII and fight for VICTORY in the Pacific.

New Porting Kit! Native games and Origin is back!

VitorMM here, and Porting Kit have support to native games now! What that means? That means that now you will find links to buy native games in our database, so now you can manage ALL your games with the Porting Kit, and not only the ported ones. That will be specially useful when we rally a new feature in Porting Kit, which should be coming soon…

Now about Origin ports: they are back! All Origin port were updated to Paul’s newest Origin engine, and now we won’t have problems with the latest Origin version. No more update error in the end of the installation, and no errors related to game installations.

With Porting Kit 1.9.115, we also have some bug fixes since 1.9.95, which includes a bug which made Porting Kit incapable of being used by computers with more than one active user. Also, the Ranking tab is now multi-threaded, which means that it won’t froze Porting Kit until its content has been loaded.

Many surprises are coming in the next Porting Kit releases (my TODO list already has 12 items), so keep yourself updated. If you want to keep yourself in touch with the latest features, make sure you always update to the latest version. If you only want to access new features when they are completely tested, update only when the latest version is marked as stable, which will be the same version for download here.

GOG.com Galaxy (Windows) for Mac!

Great news! I managed to port GOG Galaxy (Windows version) to the Porting Kit. You may ask why to Port the Windows version while there is a Mac version? Well, very simple, this port will run (almost) all Windows only DOS games on GOG.com! And those are a lot! Secondly, a lot of other Windows only games will run this app as well, but thats experimental. We already implanted the GOG.com Galaxy option into the GOG.com ports which are compatible with the program.

For the GOG.com games which doesn’t support the GOG Galaxy app, we will have an expirimental option for it soon. Let us know what games run flawless with this port so we can add the galaxy support to those games as well!

New Game Search and game pages in place on Portingkit.com!

A new Milestone is reached! Because of a hard working friend and co-worker on Porting Kit, our one and only main developer Vitor Marques de Miranda has put the search Engine and the game page feature on portingkit.com! What does this all mean? I know, I know, it contains a lot and some explanation :) Lets start with the Search engine:

The Search engine is totally changed now to this page…. It looks gorgeous with icons and ratings and shows when its a free game or not. You can simply tick on the search terms which will show you the results of the search. Because there has been some bugs in the Porting Center, not all games has gotten a “genre” selection and that makes the game invisible in the search. Thats why we are updating coming days all game ports and adding the specific game genre and thus visible in the search. So expect a lot of orange collard games coming days ;)

But wait, there is more! every game as its own awesome game page now and App ID! For Example: Incredible Machine: More Contraptions has ID 739 and has its own page with rankings, trailer, game description etc. which is also mentioned in the port description in the Portingkit. Is that cool or is that cool?
