Game description:
King of Dragon Pass is a game like no other. It combines strategy, adventure, RPG, and civilization sim, but it focuses mostly on storytelling. Each turn the game offers you with a choice to make and the progress of the story depends solely on your decisions. The difference between right and wrong is seldom obvious, but whatever action you take, be ready to face its consequences later. There are virtually limitless ways the story can unfold, so each play-through—whether it’s a quick game or an extended campaign—promises new adventures and plot twists!

DXVK Support is there for Porting Kit 4 Beta!

Great news! I made a separate post for this, but it’s important to explain, because DXVK support (Directx 10+11) is there!!! Yes that’s right, so this means big Directx11 titles will come to Porting Kit!!!!! And tonight we will make a massive introduction of the feature by releasing the port for Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition!! I will make a video of the tutorial and that the game even works great on Silicon Macs!!

Important to note is that DXVK/Vulkan support works only in Porting Kit 4 Beta and not in Porting Kit 3! Porting Kit 4 will be the main Porting Kit app and Porting Kit 3 will eventually be fased out when all the functions (which PK4 is missing) from PK3 are migrated.

New version of DXVK released – OnePerDay
