Wineskin Tutorial: How to fix Steam login problems in a Steam Wrapper!

Wineskin Tutorial: How to fix Steam login problems in a Steam Wrapper!

In my game port collection there are quite a number of Steam game wrappers which contains the Windows Steam client. I made this video tutorial to show people who encounter Steam login issues, how to fix that. Those Steam client login issues accure most of the time in older wrappers with outdated steam clients pre-installed. In those cases you might run into connection problems error messages from Steam. You may wonder why because you are conencted to the internet. Well, the problem in that case is the pre-installed steam client software. To fix that you need to delete the steam folder in the wrapper and re-install steam into the wrapper. I made a video tutorial about that so you can fix that yourself. It would be nice that if you run into a wrapper with that problem, to inform me about that, so I can make a wrapper update for that Steam wrapper.

I added the video-link to the Wineskin Video Tutorial page as well!

Planetside 2 for the Mac!

Great news, Ian Pickert already had a close watch on the progress of the game and now we have a quite stable wrapper with descent performance. A lot of people requested this game and I am happy this one is finally available here. One little note: The video volume is very low, so you need to put it on high and still it will be not very loud. Ian is making a new video so, I will put it online at once when the video is done. Meanwhile you can still follow-up the visual instructions ;).

Planetside 2 is a Massive online first person shooter. Battles take place not between dozens of troops, but thousands; with air and ground vehicles slugging it out alongside squads of troops. Whether in open fields, tightly packed urban centers or enormous structures, planning, teamwork and communication are essential. PlanetSide 2 features incredible continent maps with dozens of square kilometers of seamless gameplay space; every inch of which is hand-crafted, contestable space. With the territorial control meta-game, landmass has intrinsic value.

Rome Total War 2 for the Mac!

On many requests, here finally is Rome Total War 2.  Total War Rome II is one of the best strategy games around. Its the follow-up of Rome Total War, which is already released for Mac. For Rome Total War good system specs are required, a 256 GFX card will simply not do. Minimum requirements are a 512MB GFX card and at least 4 GB internal memory (8GB highly recommended). I played with my Nvidia GT 640m 512MB graphicscard and 8 GB ram and with those specs its running quite good on medium settings and in 1920×1080 resolution. I played a historical battle and a campaign for an hour where I fought 4 battles without any problems.

The award-winning Total War series returns to Rome, setting a brand new quality benchmark for Strategy gaming. Become the world’s first superpower and command the Ancient world’s most incredible war machine. Dominate your enemies by military, economic and political means. Your ascension will bring both admiration and jealousy, even from your closet allies.

While I am stuck in a holiday house without my other iMacs still in my house and with a crappy Internet connection, because of the new tiled floor I am getting, I am doing what I can to at least as much as I can to fix all stuff what still needed to be done.
