Dark Devotion for Mac

I came past this game on GOG.com, ported the game and runs great on my AMD Radeon iMac! The only flaw I could found is that you cannot play it full screen (see video below), but you can see the menu bar in the top. But game runs just smooth and nice. Its bin a while as well that I made a game video, so thats nice as well. Just remember to not update to Catalina yet, because of the 32-bit support drop of Mac OS 10.15. 

Game description:
Would you like to play something with tough puzzles and laughing-out-loud humour? What about something full of funny characters, featuring mind-bending plots and brain-teasing puzzles?
Help the King regain his sanity after he got turned into a raving lunatic, save the kidnapped prince and interview Queen Xina and King Bodd who have been fighting for years. You will be confronted by surprise after surprise and will have to face the most unexpected enemies. Enjoy good, old-fashioned fun for everyone.

Install is Simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup file from Dark Devotion from GOG (Remember to download the “offline backup setup files” into your download folder.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the game in the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!

Gobliiins pack for Mac

Someone mentioned to me that the Gobliiins trilogy of Gamersgate wasn’t for sale anymore and requested the GOG.com Gobliiins pack version which I also own. So I checked it out and I ported the 3 games in 3 separate games because they have separate installers. So if you buy/own the pack, then you have all 3 games in one sale. The games work all great :) Enjoy Gobliiins pack for Mac!

Portingkit 3.0 beta has been released!

Yes finally after some delay the beta of Porting Kit 3.0 has been released! It contains fixes and a total restructure of the Porting Kit graphical interface.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The GUI overhaul was been chosen because of some confusement with the local library tab and the server tab. With this new look we hope to have everything in view. On the right the window where you can find all game ports added on the database. On the left all your installed game ports.

When clicking on the “v” at the end of a game port, you have all the usual options. Besides that you can click on the game port and the usual view of the trailer and the “Play” and “More” options will be there as all times. When you want to see al server/database ports again, click the back “<” button to get the main view in the library.

Besides the Graphical change the update contains also lots of fixes, like: Showing all icons when searching for specific game. (earlier the last row was showing a windmill (loading icon), Winetrick fix (Directx9) which was failing and thus dozens of games were not working properly. And some more. See all changes below. Before the stable 3.0 release we at least want to fix the extra error bugs you regularly get with installing (read not the GOG.com installation errors) which has to do somehow with the “Unofficial wine engines”. But we had to release the update to fix some important bugs.

You can update to the latest beta by updating manually using the Portingkit menu ==> and choose “check for updates”. If it is greyed out, then restart Porting Kit first. Enjoy!!!

Changes:

  • Added: New library that merges the local and the server libraries
  • Fixed: Alerts should have the Dark style in macOS 10.13- if the Dark mode is selected
  • Fixed: Avoiding exception while listing Wineskin available engines
  • Fixed: The directx9 winetrick should be installed with an older version of winetricks
  • Fixed: Engines listing should work properly in the legacy version
  • Added: Support to the Intel Coffee Lake CPU and Intel UHD
  • Improved: Crash Logs send by PK
  • Changed: If your computer is incompatible with the Porting Kit, it should close on startup after giving the warning
  • Fixed: Avoiding error when running Wineskin wrapper through library
  • Fixed: Only one port can be installed at a time

MacOS Catalina is nearing! Don’t do it (Yet)!!

MacOS Catalina is nearing! Don't do it (Yet)!!

Yeah, time is going fast and we are far behind and there is lot’s to do regarding the new Mac OS Catalina. Apple thinks they are gracious enough with the time to get everything ready. But simply said. Mac OS Catalina is 64bit and will kill all your 32bit games…. True story. So if you want to play any old and newer 32-bit games , then don’t do it!

“But if you make Porting Kit 64bit, is it not resolved?” Nope, the games itself are 32-bit and have 32-bit processes, and simply won’t work anymore. Only 64bit games. “Does this mean everything is lost?” No! not yet. We are planing to make a Linux version of Porting Kit. This in combination with a tiny Linux distro with wine, will make it technically possible to still be able to play 32bit games in a kind of VM and not needing Windows or bootcamp. Yes it’s a hell of a job and it takes time and patience and for you guys not to update to Mac OS Catalina to be able to play your games. We will keep you guys in the loop with the process. If you are a Mac/Linux coder/programmer and want to contribute helping us, contact us (Vitor) using the contact form, so stuff can speed up. Thanks for your  tremendous patience and support!

We will make this topic sticky for a while, so for other updates, game releases and news just scroll down. the news page.

Over 25 Steam wrapper updates with Steam Store/Chat fixes.

Good news. I updated over 25 Steam games wrappers which contains fixes for the Steam Store and Steam Chat! I already talked about that 2 weeks back, and made then a few updates, but now over 25 most popular Steam Wrappers have been updated. It is always hard to maintain changes which the Game Client publishers do (Steam/Origin/Uplay/GOG Galaxy). And we always try to keep up, but this is not always possible due to Wine developing (not fixed in Wine yet) or due to lack of time (we not getting to it to fix because of lack of time).

Anyways, I worked down the list from popular games to less popular games. The Wrapper upgrades do not only contain fixes of Steam, but may also improve performance and have bugfixes. If your game(s) is/are in the list I advise to backup the existing wrapper somewhere and delete it in Porting Kit and reinstall the updated port. Enjoy!

List of updated Steam wrappers:
Max Payne
Max Payne 2
Elderscrolls III – Morrowind
Sniper Ghost Warrior 2
Southpark Stick of Truth
Call of Duty – World at War
Mass Effect
Mass Effect 2
Payday the Heist
Payday 2
Pro Evolution Soccer 2016
Pro Evolution Soccer 2017
Final Fantasy III
Final Fantasy VII
Final Fantasy VIII
NBA 2k14
Sid Meier’s Civilization 3
Knights of Honor
Company of Heroes
Hitman IV – Blood Money
ARMA 2
Stronghold Collection
Supreme Commander
Supreme Commander 2
Supreme Commander – Forged Aliance
Dishonored

Have fun with the updated wrappers. The ports will contain an “updated” badge in the Porting Kit.

The game was recently added to the GOG.com catalog, so that was reason to check the game out and with success! Game is fully ported in it’s glory with only one small limitation…the resolution. Normally you can choose from 4 resolutions from which 1 in widescreen. That resolution somehow doesn’t work, and max resolution is 1024×768, which of course is fine as well. A small price to pay for being able to play all the classic glory times again.  is
