Some more Wrapper updates

Some more Wrapper updates

It’s very busy lately, But I manage some maintenance on a few ports after getting a few e-mails about them. As you know we always try our best in our spare-time to improve porting Kit and the ports of course, which is a continuous progress.

Starting with Zork Grand Inquisitor. That game seemed to be changed from DOS version to SCUMVM version in the GOG.com catalog. So this meaned for me to change the installer file and startup flags for the SCUMVM version. Working lovely now.

Then we have Giants – Citizen Kabuto, which had an issue because GOG change the setup file name, so I changed that for the game, this also counted for Mount and Blade – Fire and Sword. So fixed that issue as well.

Enjoy the games!

Porting Kit Tips: Screen Capture!

I am doing a series of tip posts to learn more about Porting Kit and all it’s features. I already did the first tutorial about themes. If You missed that one, you can read about that tip up here…

 

 

 

 

 

Today we discuss the special feature: Screen capture! You maybe wouldn’t expect that feature in Porting Kit, but we have it implanted indeed. You can find the feature under the Porting Kit menu –> Tools –> Start Screen Capture. It will then ask for a location to save the screen capture. Then Select a nice spot, choose if you want to have the mouse cursor on your capture and in what resolution you want to capture. When you made your mind start a Porting Kit game to capture or anything else you had in mind. Yes this also means “non” Porting Kit stuff ;)

When you are finished. You can stop the screen capture using the “Stop Screen Capture” option in the Porting Kit –> tools menu or a more aggressive method with a combination key of cmd + q (closes Porting Kit as well). Then check the results in your where you saved the screen-capture.

Enjoy this cool feature in Porting Kit! If you have more cool stuff you want in Porting Kit, or you have good Suggestions, then please let us know so we can make Porting Kit even better then it already is! Use the “Contact” feature in Porting Kit to reach us.

Game description:
It’s the year 1400- the late Middle Ages. Europe sees the dawn of the golden age of the new departures and the free spirit. Under the rule of the bourgeoisie and businessmen, more and more towns are emerging from the clutches of the aristocracy and are achieving independence, power and wealth. New businesses are flourishing, bringing financial strength and political influence to a growing economy.

However, life in the narrow, overpopulated alleyways and streets of the towns also has its downsides: epidemics and diseases are spreading, and thieves and highwaymen lie in wait to get their piece of the wealth. Now you can try your hand in these exciting times of change. Will you head down the path of an honest craftsman or a dubious priest? It’s your choice.

Porting Kit Tips: Themes!

We will drop now and then a few “Hidden features” of Porting Kit. Most people use Porting Kit in the “default” way, while Porting Kit is so much more. We try to make an awesome experience in use and in looks.

Did you know that you can change the Porting Kit theme?
When you go to the Porting Kit menu in the top bar. You can go to “Preferences” –> edit/change. There you wil get into a menu where you can choose between: 3 modes, 4 themes (Default, Blue Galaxy, Boxer Dark Shelf and Boxer Light Shelf) and background color. This way you can make Porting Kit look awesome, in the way you like it to be.

Besides that you can still change in the library between Icon view and List view. The most beautiful is of course the Icon view, but if you are more practical and when you want overview, you can switch to list view. It simply doesn’t matter, you can change it fast and easy with just one click of the mouse button. Enjoy Porting Kit! Suggestions and tips can always be sent using the contact form, and maybe we can implant it into Porting Kit. We are open for every idea :)

Caveblazers for Mac

Another hot game is Caveblazers  for Mac! I received that game last week and added it into Porting Kit. Caveblazers for Mac is a platform action game combining roquelike gameplay. Its fast, its pleasing to play. The game port works very well, although to avoid screen-tearing it’s advised to play the game Windowed. You have that option within game in the video settings. Besides that, it works like a charm :) Make sure you download the “offline backup setup files” into your download folder before starting the install. I keep getting emails of people that the install failed, because they downloaded the wrong setup file :P Game is priced $9,99, worth the money, or wishlist it for a future promo actions (which are plenty on GOG.com).

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 Caveblazers 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!

Game description:
Caveblazers is an action focused platformer roguelike set in a fantasy world. Each game is unique with procedurally generated levels to explore and a massive amount of items, weapons and equipment to discover. The game takes place in a recently discovered cave, said to hold “unimaginable power”. You play as an adventurer setting out to explore the cave and find out what riches it holds. However, you are not the only one… As you delve deeper in to the cave, you’ll discover new areas to explore, new weapons and new monsters to try them out on.
