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
