Battlefield 2 added to Portingkit!

On request Battlefield 2 Complete (Gamersgate version) is added to the Portingkit. I checked the game and Singleplayer works like a charm in my tests (with a couple of gfx settings changes in video settings of the game which is mentioned in the game description of the game in the Portingkit). The online play option doesn’t work, but you should be still able to play multiplayer via LAN or the internet in combination with Hamachi.

I made the port available as Crosstie and for the Portingkit. So for the basic instructions for the Portingkit installation go here… and to learn more about Crossover go here…

Mass Effect added into Portingkit + Crosstie!

Mass Effect has 2 versions. One: The not working Origin version (because of the malfunctional Origin in Wine) and the Working Steam version for which this port is created. So make sure you have the good version when try to run it in Crossover and the Portingkit. I tested the game for a while and works quite well on my Nvidia 640M 512mb GFX  iMac.

Thrillville: Off the Rails for the Mac!

Some great news! As you may know Thrillville: Off the Rails is been re-released a little while back, and I finally got my fingers on the Gamersgate (=steam version) of the game and managed to get it working quite easily.  Thrillville: Off the Rails lives up to its name with 20 death-defying rides so outrageous, they inspire the same word from every park visitor who sees them: “WHOA!” But the new fun doesn’t stop there. Off the Rails features 34 playable multiplayer minigames, 15 all-new theme areas, over 40 thrill rides, a new story that ties together more than 100 missions, and social interaction with park guests that’s better than ever.

Technobabylon for the Mac!

The year 2087 is upon us — a future where genetic engineering is the norm, the addictive Trance has replaced almost any need for human interaction, and an omnipresent AI named Central powers the city. Its all-seeing CEL police force keeps tabs on everyone, including three people who are about to meet their maker. I tested Technobabylon and it works even on my Intel HD 5000 and played a while without any issues. Below a trailer with some visuals of the game.

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “Technobabylon” and click download. If you don’t own the game yet the Portingkit can direct you to the game page where to purchase it and download the setup/download file into your download folder. When you clicked “no” and were directed to the game page, you have to click “download” again and then click “yes” so the Portingkit will install the game for you. After installation the Portingkit will say the installation was done successfully. Then go to your “local” tab where you can select the game and click “play”!

Ultimate General: Gettysburg for the Mac!

Ultimate General: Gettysburg is a Tactical Battle Simulator that allows you to lead thousands of soldiers in the famous Battle of Gettysburg as commander of either the Union or Confederate army.  The game features the most accurately created map, complex morale, innovative control mechanics and smart AI. You have the freedom to use different strategies while the battle progresses. Your decisions and military performance play a crucial role in the result. Lead your army and win the Battle of Gettysburg!

Simple and great. Ultimate General Gettysburg succeeds in what others (PC-) wargames often fail greatly : Being fairly easy to grasp but on the other hand accurately simulating the matter. Due to the impressive and scalable AI and you have a game that is playable by beginners and old grognards as well. The graphics are a mix of a fairly beautiful 2d map plus sprites for the soldiers. Don’t let this description fool you : The game looks gorgeous and I never missed the fancy Total War graphics. UG: Gettysburg doesn’t offer a strategic campaign like TW though, but slices the three Days of Gettysburg in several scenarios.

Not a Hero for the Mac!

Finally another game port :) after a busy period in my private life here another game port of one of the latest indie games.

Professional assassin turned amateur campaign manager Steve is charged with cleaning up the city by an anthropomorphic rabbit and mayoral candidate from the future named BunnyLord. Now Steve and his expanding roster of dubious heroes must wield their unique skills to shoot, slide, dive, and take cover behind a political platform built on ethics, accountability, and an inordinate amount of gunfire. I tested Not a Hero and works even on my Intel HD 5000 and played 2 levels without any issues. Below some visuals of the game.

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “Not a Hero” and click download. If you don’t own the game yet the Portingkit can direct you to the game page where to purchase it and download the setup/download file into your download folder. When you clicked “no” and were directed to the game page, you have to click “download” again and then click “yes” so the Portingkit will install the game for you. After installation the Portingkit will say the installation was done successfully. Then go to your “local” tab where you can select the game and click “play”!

Stealth Bastards Deluxe Complete for the Mac!

Stay out of the light to avoid the attention of deadly security robots! Leap like a lusty salmon to avoid those zap-happy lasers! Think fast as the walls close in around you! Only the fastest and sneakiest will make it to the exit without being mangled by the facility’s security systems. Will you be among them? I tested Stealth Bastards Deluxe and works even on my Intel HD 5000 and played about 5 levels without any issues. Below some visuals of the game.

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “Stealth Bastards Deluxe” and click download. If you don’t own the game yet the Portingkit can direct you to the game page where to purchase it and download the setup/download file into your download folder.

More game ports added to the Portingkit!

A lot of good old games are added at the moment. Last post about added games to Portingkit were a lot of Nordic games. Here are some more for the GOG.com version. This means that the Gamersgate WSI/download file was already present, but now the GOG.com version is added for the same game as well. I did that for the games Aquanox, Aquanox 2.

Then here some “new” games I added to Portingkit. First to make the Black Mirror series complete: Black Mirror 3 is added. I also added most of the King’s Quest series starting with Kings Quest I Remake (the original Mac version crashes on start-up). In the same post I added links to the 2 other King’s Quest remakes with a working Mac version.

Then I added also Kings Quest IV, King’s Quest V and King’s Quest VI which comes in one package from GOG.com. They all have separate WSI/Download files because they have separate installer files. Enjoy!

Police Quest Collection for the Mac!

Walk the thin blue line in four of the most realistic crime games ever created, packed with complex storylines and real-life mysteries that only a handful of real police officers ever face – or solve. You don’t just watch the action – you’re in the thick of it. Yes, the Police Quest collection is added in the Portingkit! This means you will find Police Quest, Police Quest 2, Police Quest 3 and Police Quest 4 in the game list. All 4 games have their own download (WSI) in the Portingkit because those games have their own installer file on GOG.com. I added a game-play video below of Police Quest 4. Enjoy this nice adventure collection!

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select on of the Police Quest games of the “Police Quest collection” and click download. If you don’t own the game yet the Portingkit can direct you to the game page where to purchase it and download the setup/download file into your download folder. When you clicked “no” and were directed to the game page, you have to click “download” again and then click “yes” so the Portingkit will install the game for you. After installation the Portingkit will say the installation was done successfully. Then go to your “local” tab where you can select the game and click “play”!
