Anno 1503 Gold Wrapper update!

I heard from some guys that there was no ingame music in the recent Wrapper of Anno 1503 Gold Edition. I didn’t even know that was missing, so I re-looked into the game today and fixed the ingame music and added the game into the portingkit as well. I also updated the icon and Wineskin version to the recent one. There was also a screenflicker issue in on the Yosemite OSX which I fixed also.  Enjoy this great game in the Portingkit!

Changes:
– Fixed ingame music
– Fixed screen issue in Yosemite
– Updated Wine Engine/Wineskin
– New paulthetall.com branded icon
– Added in the portingkit

Aquanox 2 for the Mac!

This is the second Portingkit only application where I don’t need to host the Wrapper anywhere. The free Portingkit will do all the work for all new game port releases from now on. Aquanox 2 is an action game where you find yourself undersea fighting and surviving. You can buy this game from Gamersgate and download the “Download Aquanox 2- Revelation.exe” file from your Gamersgate library to your downloads folder where the Portingkit will do the rest :) Tested the game on my Nvidia 640M iMac and works native windows. I made another video instruction for this game using the Portingkit including some gameplay! Have fun!

Aquanox 2: Revelation chases the player through high-energy action and sinister underwater cities. A gripping story, striking characters and the overwhelming architecture of the underwater world are framed by an ingenious user interface. Bonus objectives as well as hidden bonus weaponry guarantee each missions’ re-playability. Tactics and patience complement the fast-paced dogfights. The player becomes a member of a group of eight mercenaries crossing the oceans.

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “Aquanox” game 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 to 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”!

Portingkit Frequently asked Questions…

Yes! The Portingkit BETA is a fact now. But what are the plans? What to expect? How fast will the adding of the games go? Well this post will answer some of the questions:

Cool! Portinkit is a fact. What will happen to the game pages and the existing wrappers?
Well, the specific game pages and game posts of the games added to the Portingkit will stay the same, only the link to the Wrapper will change to the portingkit.com website. The wrappers of the games which are added to the Portingkit, will be put offline because there is no need for it anymore because the free Portingkit will create it for you automatically.

I don’t have the GOG.com or Gamersgate version of the game will the Portingkit still work.
Of course will it still work, the Portingkit will popup with a window to choose the setup file manually. however, the Gamersgate/GOG.com games proposed are tested, auto-detected and advised to use. other versions may contain copy protection or download clients not tested and may in that case fail to work.

I cant see the videos on the “News” Tab (paulthetall.com website) it says blocked content.
Update to the latest Flashplayer and restart Portingkit and it will be fixed.

I can’t still “Rank” any games in the Portingkit.
Correct, this functionality will be added soon.

How fast will filling the database go? And what about the Steam games?
Well, I will try to do at least 5 a day. I may get some help from some other people as well. About the Steam game Wrappers. Yes they will be added as well on short term. in the end all the game ports on paulthetall.com will be added into the Portingkit.

Will there come more video tutorials?
Of course, all on short term.

Civilization 2 for Mac!

To make the total series of Civilization for Mac complete: here Civilization 2 for Mac!! As you know Civilization and Civilization 3, Civilization IV and Civilization V were already available for Mac, but today I make the Wrapper for Civilization II available. Check out also one of the other over thousands game ports on paulthetall.com.

Game Description:
Sid Meier’s Civilization II is a turn-based strategy video game developed and published by MicroProse. Civilization II is similar to the first Civilization, with some changes to the various units, civilizations, world wonders, tile “specials” and technologies. The graphics were changed from a top-down view to an isometric representation. Rivers no longer occupy the whole of each tile along their length; instead, they are part of each topography square through which they flow, adding productive value, defensive bonuses and movement ability. The AI was improved as well, including the elimination of most random events by now making the computer player go through the same production requirements as the human player. Enjoy this amazing game on your Mac!

Installation is quite simple:
1. Go to the Civilization 2 Mac page…
2. Download Porting Kit and open it.
3. Click install on the Civilization 2 Mac page and let Porting Kit install the game.
4. Click “Play” in Porting Kit.

Have fun!

Bully – Scholarship Edition for Mac!

On request: Bully: Scholarship Edition! I tested the Gamersgate edition (now a Steam serial), in the Steambuild1 Wrapper and works fine. I played the game about 2 hours without any issues. Make sure you in the ingame options increase the mouse sensitivity to “2.0” or higher for proper mouse movement for camera view. A good video-card is recommend though. I played the game in the highest resolution (1600×900) without issues on my Nvidia 640M iMac with 512MB. Enjoy!

Note: The game won’t work on most Intel graphic cards (Like Intel Graphics HD 4000/5000), but seems to work on Intel Iris. It might be that the Mac driver needs to be turned off for the Intel Iris gfx cards doing: right-click wrapper –> show package content –> wineskin –> screen settings and deselect the mac driver. Game works great on Nvidia Mac’s (512mb advised).

Install Instructions: 
Download the Portingkit using the link below and extract it –> then double-click the Portingkit and go to the server library tab –> search for Bully Scholarship and download the WSI file which will create a Wrapper including Steam. Then when creation is finished, go to the local library tab and launch Bully and login into the Windows steam and activate the Bully: Scholarship Edition (if you don’t own it yet) serial and download and play!
