Blitzkrieg 2 Wrapper update and 2 extra expansion ports!

I updated the Blitzkrieg 2 Anthology port. It was split up by GOG.com in 3 separate installers: Blitzkrieg 2, Blitzkrieg 2 – Liberation and Blitzkrieg 2 – Fall of the Reich. So I had to fix the main game installer plus I had to create 2 separate ports for the 2 expansion games. So here we are :) Have fun with this strategy classic!

Whats new?
– Fix of the main game path + setup file detect
– 2 new game ports for the 2 expansions Liberation + Fall of the Reich

All three games have their own game pages here…, here… and here…

Star Wars – Battlefront 2 Wrapper update!

I got some mails from people who tried to install Star Wars Battlefront 2, into Porting Kit, but it didn’t work anymore because first the setup was not automatically recognized + main exe path was changed + a new dll was required. All of this has to do with a recent update of the game on GOG.com. They released new installers with multiplayer support using GOG Galaxy (which is not available yet in Porting kit) and changed the setup files of the “Battle Front 2 Classic XP/Vista (no multiplayer)” version (which is supported in Porting Kit).

So, to play the game in Porting Kit you need to download the “Battle Front 2 Classic XP/Vista” setup files (not the ones for multiplayer) and let porting Kit install it and start the fun. We are looking to the Multiplayer Galaxy support version, but until then use the one mentioned above.

Changed:
– Fixed auto-detect GOG setup file
– Updated main path .exe
– Fixed startup issue (extra binkw32.dll required)

Cuphead for Mac

On many request Cuphead for Mac! The game port is experimental and should process to at least 90% of the game (7-8 hours of gameplay) before a possible crash may occur. If this happens, we would gladly get a save game file to reproduce the bug so we can fix it to a full working version. The problem is that the game is very hard :P so we need people to get this far into the game to sent us the save game file :) Meanwhile you can enjoy this awesome made game! Have fun!

Game Description:
Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit if you don’t have it yet.
2. Get the Cuphead game from GOG.com when you don’t own it yet.
3. Download the setup file from your GOG.com game library.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the Cuphead game on the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game click “exit” and then in Porting Kit click “Play”!

Porting Kit 2.9.0 released!

We made a new release of Porting Kit which contains 2 dozens of changes and improvements. One of the most important and the one with the most impact is the new installer wizard feature! Yes thats right, with every install of a game there is install wizard which shows clear instructions and information about the installation, so installations will be even more a walk in the park!

Another cool improvements is that the Gecko/Mono windows will be closed automatically in the game installs, and lots of other bug fixes and small improvements for High Sierra as well.

Check out all the changes in the release notes here…

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky Wrapper update.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky seemed to have an issue with the launcher with the latest version of the game (asks for serial). This has been addressed and now contains 2 shortcuts. One for the Launcher and one for the main game. In the Launcher you can set language and a few more settings, while you can launch the game itself in the main game shortcut. Have fun!

Changes:
– Extra shortcut for the main game exe + fix

On request! Netstorm – Island at War, was ported to Mac on Paulthetall.com a few years back, but wasn’t added to Porting Kit yet.

The people now live on small floating islands, each with its own high priest; their only link to their patron Fury. The islands battle each other in order to capture and sacrifice the priests of their enemies to their own Fury so they may gain knowledge and power.

YS Seven for Mac

Another YS game has been added to Porting Kit: YS Seven for Mac! The YS game has been released a few weeks ago and we are happy to add it to the rest of the series, which are also ported to Mac in Porting Kit. I checked the game out for a bit and all smooth and good in high settings. Advised to play it or in 30hz full screen. Or in 60hz in windowed mode (you can change that in the launcher), to avoid screen-tearing. Enjoy!

Game description:

Uncover the secret of the Five Great Dragons, and help Adol Christin save the day in YS Seven once again!

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit if you don’t have it yet.
2. Get the Star Wars – Rogue Squadron 3D game from GOG.com when you don’t own it yet.
3. Download the setup file from your GOG.com game library.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the YS Seven game on the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game click “exit” and then in Porting Kit click “Play”!

High Sierra…. yes or No?

High Sierra is available in the app store!! Many people are updating their OSX now to the latest High Sierra one. Is the new OS good news for Porting Kit?

A clear answer for now: Please wait until we tested it completely. At least if you still want to play your games. Why? It seems that it works fine with a SSD Mac with High Sierra, but brought massive issues on a normal SATA HDD drive for Wineskin, and thus also for Porting Kit. Winetricks were failing and port creation. It may be the specific beta build of High Sierra I used, but we aren’t sure until we check the final version.

In short, don’t upgrade until you hear a green light from here! We keep you guys posted….
