News about the Porting Kit Legacy version (Support OSX 10.6 and 10.7)

News about the Porting Kit Legacy version (Support OSX 10.6 and 10.7)

We thought about it already for a while, but now we come to a point we really have to make choices. The Porting Kit Legacy version is going to end (support for OSX 10.6 and 10.7) We know this may sound like a shocking decision to some of you, however this is the best for the Porting Kit future.

The number of Porting Kit Legacy users became around 0.9% of the total in the last three months. This is a very small number considering the tremendous amount of time to maintain it. Especially considering that we haven’t used resources introduced in macOS 10.7 and beyond in the main features to keep the Legacy support.

The last version of Porting Kit Legacy will still be available in the Porting Kit website. It will become the new stable version, and it should still be able to work. Although, it will not receive updates anymore.

The good news is, that with that change, we should be able to introduce to you some new cool features. That includes a new library, which combines Local and Server tabs in a single view. The new stuff is planned to happen in the coming weeks, so we keep you guys informed :)

Wrapper update Civcity Rome and Myst URU Chronicles!

Wrapper update Civcity Rome and Myst URU Chronicles!

We do wrapper updates al the time, but when there are some significant updates we try to post them on the blog as much we can. So here the update for Civcity Rome ! The game needs core fonts, but the Porting Kit somehow failed the fonts trick into the wrapper, which caused you not to see the fonts in-game. With the latest Porting Kit version this is solved! So update Porting Kit (using the top bar menu –> check for updates) to fix the issue.

Myst URU Complete Chronicles had an issue concerning launch probably cause in one of the installer updates of GOG.com. This is fixed to now and doesn’t need an Porting Kit update. Refresh the server tab and make sure the GOG.com setup file is in the download folder and install the game and play

BlueMSX (MSX Emulator) for Mac

Yep, it is time to also add Applications to Porting Kit. BlueMSX is the first one of a long row :) Blue MSX is simply the best and most complete emulator for MSX and it took a while to get it finally working properly and the show stopper is now addressed by a workaround having the BlueMSX Application full screen when starting a game/program. It is also mentioned in bold in the application description and video (yep, made a new video after some silence in creating videos). So we are still deciding if for apps there will be a separate tab, but for now we put it between the normal games.

App Description:
The blueMSX MSX emulator is approaching its third anniversary and in this short time it has established itself as the most advanced and feature rich MSX emulator. It supports most common machines and a wide variety of extension hardware. A feature rich debugger is also included in the emulator. During the last two years, the MSX emulation has been extended and support for other systems have been added. blueMSX is now also an SVI emulator, and supports the ColecoVision and Sega SG-1000, SC-3000, SF-7000 consoles.
