Red Alert and Red Alert 2 Wrapper update!

Red Alert and Red Alert 2 Wrapper update!

Update 6-June-2018:
We fixed an Engine extract failure which some people experienced. That should work properly now with latest update yesterday. So if you experienced the issue. Try again and it should work fine now.

====

I have done lots of stuff for Porting Kit this weekend. Lets start with Red Alert and Red Alert 2 :)

Red Alert:
Red Alert was working quite well already but had after longer game-play a habit to crash or loose the mouse capture in especially multiplayer or skirmish games. That problem is addressed in the latest Wrapper update of Red Alert and works stable as never before! If you have Red Alert installed then it is is required to trash the wrapper in Porting Kit on your local tab, and reinstall it on your server tab.

Red Alert 2:
Red Alert 2 has a long history as well with all kind of changes from stability also due to Origin’s updates. You may have read the news I fixed the Origin Client issue earlier last week. Now this past weekend I took the time to test the latest Winestaging engine and it seems to run remarkably good. I earlier used a specific mod and extra files to get some better performance, but still it would crash regularly. I tested with the latest Wrapper update and I played 1.5 hours in a row without a single crash. It even doesn’t require any manual actions (adding files or using mods). So finnally we have a stable build of this game. Eager to check it out? Get the C&C Ultimate collection cheap here… and start play this game again!

Uplay update and Wrapper update Valiant Hearts!

We have working hard this weekend fixing issues/bugs in the game clients Origin and Uplay. There has been some issues with Uplay and with the some games itself. I applied a general fix for the Uplay client by using the latest Winestaging engine 3.9, which fixes a bug  in the Uplay client. Besides that I am checking/updating the Uplay games in Porting Kit.

The first game (more coming up this week) I updated is Valiant Hearts. It seemed that Valiant Hearts was not working anymore and besides that had a sound bug. Both Issues are adressed now, and this means you can play this awesome game again on your Mac! Really a recommended game!

Porting Kit news.

Porting Kit news.

As you may know there has been a lot going on in Porting Land. We have lots of things we need to think about and working on, especially concerning future 32-bit support drop by Apple in later OS updates. As you also may know we had a Linux version of Porting Kit planned for the future, but because of the Mac OS advancement, we decided to make this a priority. So Vitor is working hard to create a Linux version of Porting Kit, which should work with the existing “game port scripts” (WSI2 files) we have for Mac (just like in Crossover the cross-ties work for bot Linux and Mac). There is only 1 difference in Linux, which is that there is no such thing as “Macdriver”. So this will be X11 instead. Hower, the pro thing in Linux is, that there is much better support for Directx11. So games like Witcher 3 and others are possible in there. So that’s something to look forward too.

Besides that we are working on something new as well in Porting Kit called: PKE “Porting Kit Environment” which will be a complete “environment” and more cool stuff, but more info follows, when things progress. In short, we never sit still although it may be that there is some silence for a while.
