World of Tanks Wrapper update!

Finally after a long while of failure and issues I have here finally a properly working World of Tanks Wrapper! It works quite well on my AMD radeon 512mb GFX card and have about 40-60 fps. So I was quite happy with it. The catch however is that it still works quite crappy on Intel Graphics and Nvidia cards. So it is only good playable for AMD Radeon cards only. But I hope to have an Intel and Nvidia wrapper soon as well. So check the blog regularly if there is an update for the Nvidia/Intel graphics Wrapper. Enjoy!

Changes:
– Fix crash after a battle for AMD Radeon Macs

Download the AMD Radeon Wrapper from the game page up here…

Three years back I wouldn’t have dreamed this would be happening. But after about three years, finally we reached over a 1000 game pages! About a 150-200 are native Mac game pages, the rest are game ports pages. I am happy we reached this new milestone and I want to thank you guys/girls for helping making this true! Browse through the many games using the game ports section and select your favorite game genre. There are games for everyone! From the hardcore action gamers, until the little kids, they all get served on Paulthetall.com. Choose out the many commercial game ports, or even the many free games which are just available for download for you, to give you the gaming pleasure you deserve on your Mac. Thanks again guys!

A special thanks go’s to out game sponsors GOG.com and Gamersgate, who are so sweet to donate me games to port to the Mac. Without their help this site would contain far less game ports. You can thank them them by buying your games on GOG.com or Gamersgate.com using the links on the site.

Website up again!

The Website has been down the whole day because of another outage on Bluehost. I am really disappointed in this hosting server which “should be” the best around. Now I already experienced since I have bin there 2 months, twice a mayor incident. The first caused the site to be offline for 2 days. The second (this one) for over 12 hours. I am really thinking to switch again, this is just unprofessional. I am not the only one complaining about it. Their twitter account is raining complaints.

Anyway meanwhile the site is up again, so sorry for the inconvenience.

Problem checking older posts on the BLOG fixed (Now for real)!

Everyone may have noticed it…. You check the blog and see all the wonderful news and when checked the last post on the bottom of the page, you want to move to some older posts and you click on “page 2” and guess what? You get back on page one again!! This prevented everyone of watching older posts then the latest 10. This problem seemed to be there for many weeks! Manesh Sonah checked it out and it seemed to be something in the theme what even the theme developer himself couldn’t fix! After some very hard investigation he finally solved the issue today!

So, feel free now to browse through all the older posts of the website! A big hand for Manesh Sonah!

Happy Eastern to All!

For a lot of people (like me) these days are very special because the remembrance of the passion of Christ. For some people this is a free day of from work, or to be together with family and searching for easter eggs. Either way I want to sent my best wishes to you all this day and a happy and healthy life!

To celebrate it a little bit on the site a did a freeware port of a puzzle game called:  Easter Journey. In this game you control an easter bunny and have to collect the easter eggs in the level. But it isn’t easy, there are barricades and one wrong move make you get stuck. Luckily there is a refers key (backspace) to undo your wrong action. There are 47 levels and I tested myself until level 4 and it is quite fun and challenging. A nice game to spent your time with until family arrives or something like that.

I won’t make a separate game page for this one, so download the (full game = extract and play) wrapper up here…. The file is over 200mb, so this is hosted on Filefactory, so remember to click on slow download and deselect the filefactory download manager select box. Have fun!

Happy-Easter-10
