GameTop partnership into Portingkit!

Great news!!! Maybe some people already knew GameTop from their awesome free games Like Sudden Strike 2 what is added to the Portingkit (automatic download and install) from the beginning. But also other games like business simulation games like Pioneer Lands which was already added to Portingkit as well. And now because of the Partnership there will be a big increase of those great free games for which you otherwise would have to pay $6 to $10.

GameTop has its name based on the these basic principles: no trials, no payments, no malware/virus, no toolbars, no in-game ads or what so ever. So with those principles we gladly join hands to bring more (free) games to Mac! Free games in Portingkit are marked blue, so its not orange as other new ports. So you have to check the rankings, to see what new games were added lately.

What to expect? Lot’s of free racing, puzzle, simulation, arcade and action games added to the Portingkit. More then 10 games are already added from which 8 the past few days. Have fun!

OSX 10.11 – El Capitan! DONT DO IT!! (yet)

Yeah, The Mac OSX is falling down from the stairs into a downwards spiral Since Mountain Lion (10.8) which was the best OSX ever. The games thrived into that OSX and the only thing that would need to change and updated would be graphics drivers. However with the latest OSX versions, stuff (games) got functioning worse or even not at all anymore. Now with El Capitan it gets even worse… wrappers won’t function anymore at all!!! It was the same issue with 10.7.5/10.8.2 where luckily quite fast was a fix available, but took me over a year to update all the wrappers again.

Luckily now with the Portingkit we can make changes applying to all the wrappers which are added on the Portingkit server in one time. So if there is a fix available we can implant it in one action. For the games not added to Portingkit, that’s bad news, because they need the fix applied manually. The Wineskin developer is informed about the issue and will try to fix it as soon as he can.

We keep you guys posted. So if you like to play your favorite games, wait with install OSX 10.11 El Capitan!

Important note!

Hi Guys! Here an important note. Maybe it sounds wierd but I have the feeling to do so. As many maybe already know, we live in biblical end times. The world is getting sicker every day, and good people are getting less and less. People are very selfish nowadays and God is more and more forgotten. But this time is foretold in the Bible and we are really living in the end of the days. And some terrible stuff will happen very soon as well. WW3, asteroids, deceptions, financial collapse, massive earthquakes and so on.

In those times it is good to reflect on ourselves. How is our life? Are we still doing good? How is our relation to eachother and with God? And I want to be an example in this and want to ask forgiveness to anyone who played games on paulthetall.com and because of it neglected time with God. So please forgive me, and please don’t let gaming get between you and God or that it suffers from the relation with you and God. Relationship with God is the most important thing, especially now.

Thanks and God bless you all!

Warm regards,

Paul

More game ports added to the Portingkit!

A lot of good old games are added at the moment. Last post about added games to Portingkit were a lot of Nordic games. Here are some more for the GOG.com version. This means that the Gamersgate WSI/download file was already present, but now the GOG.com version is added for the same game as well. I did that for the games Aquanox, Aquanox 2.

Then here some “new” games I added to Portingkit. First to make the Black Mirror series complete: Black Mirror 3 is added. I also added most of the King’s Quest series starting with Kings Quest I Remake (the original Mac version crashes on start-up). In the same post I added links to the 2 other King’s Quest remakes with a working Mac version.

Then I added also Kings Quest IV, King’s Quest V and King’s Quest VI which comes in one package from GOG.com. They all have separate WSI/Download files because they have separate installer files. Enjoy!

I re-added: Neighbours from Hell 1 + 2, and Silver.

Kerbal Space Program released for Mac!

Kerbal Space Program is a multi-genre game where players create their own space program. This game is now released on GOG.com and is the first week 25% off. So If you like this game (as many already do I hear), then get this game discounted now :).  When not convinced, check the trailer below for some visuals.

In KSP, you must build space-worthy craft, capable of flying your crew out into space, without killing them. At your disposal is a collection of parts, which must be assembled to create a functional ship. Each part has its own function and will affect the way a ship flies (or doesn’t). So strap yourself in, and get ready to try some Rocket Science!

Get this amazing game up here…

Steambuilds added to Portingkit!

Because Mixture cloud went off-line (and all my files hosted there which was luckily not much) and because a good free reliable file/cloud hosting service with: larger file size features, with enough bandwidth and durability, is nowhere to found anymore, I added the the Steambuilds to the Portingkit! This way you can still enjoy those Steambuilds on your Mac. So check the Portingkit and find the new Steambuilds on the Library –> Server tab!

Besides those Steambuilds I also added the Submarine simulator Silent Hunter 5 and the remaining two Thief games Thief 2 and Thief 3 into the Portingkit! Enjoy!

More games added to Portingkit!

UPDATE 25-3-2015: Fixed a bug in the Cossacks – Art of war and Cossacks – Back to War file, those should work fine now.

Here another post with an update of the latest games added to the Portingkit. It seems that GOG.com is re-structuring their game files. There are separating combi games in to multiple downloads. This means that if you purchase Cossacks Anthology, you have now 3 separate downloads instead of one file containing all 3 games in one installation. That’s fine of course, but this means the start executable path is changed and also the setup file name. This means for me that I have to adjust those WSI files in the Portingkit. Luckily they are just a few, so I can adjust them quite easily.

I made for Cossacks Anthology, three separate game files because of this: Cossacks Back to War, Art of War and European Wars. So for each game you have to download that specific setup file. It looks like they are forgot or they still have to “part” American Conquest + Fightback because they are still together in one setup file. So for now I added both game in one installer file creating 2 shortcuts to both games. I also made for Tomb Raider IV and Tomb Raider V separate download files.

Then I added Supreme Commander and Supreme Commander – Forged Alliance (On request) which are 2 Steam games . Then 2 other games which are non-steam: Dark Void Zero and SBK 2011.

Then Last but not least 2 free games: Live for Speed and onEscapee! Have fun!
