Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD available as port again.

The games Stronghold HD and Stronghold Crusader HD were first available as native port, but now because of people having trouble with the . “Native” version of the game, I made these 2 games back available as port again. These games are still not Catalina compatible, but as mentioned earlier, the winde development team is working hard to make a kind of work around available. Until then, Porting Kit is still not usable in Catalina OS 10.15.

I tested the 2 game ports myself a bit, and they work just great in my tests on my Mac’s.

Go to the updated game pages below, or search the games in the database library in the Porting Kit app:

Stronghold Crusader HD

Hearthlands released for Mac

Hearthlands released for Mac

Hearthlands for Mac is a real-time strategy game in which you take a role of a king in your own medieval/fantasy realm. You can not control your subjects directly. Instead you focus on city-building, resource management, diplomacy, heroes, magic and other things a typical king deals with on a daily basis. The world of the game, maps, characters and opponents are procedurally generated.

Hearthlands is very flexible: you can build up a powerful realm and rule the lands with an iron grip, or establish a humble fishermen’s village. Or create a trading empire. Or found a small, bur well-defended outpost or raider’s camp. Or become a host of a wizard’s manor.
