Seven Cities of Gold released for Mac!

Here another good old Classic released on GOG.com. In Seven Cities of Gold you step into the role of Christopher Columbus and chart a course to an unknown world of discovery, exploration, and conquest! The Commemorative Edition of Seven Cities of Gold is a remake of the 1984 classic, featuring enhanced graphics and sound.

As a fledgling 15th century explorer you have been given a mandate by the Spanish Crown to set sail for the New World and establish new settlements for the fortune and glory of Spain. You will have complete control over every aspect of your expedition – from the initial provisioning of your voyage, to the construction of forts and missions on newly discovered continents.

Battle Isle 4: The Andosia War for the Mac

Battle Isle 4: The Andosia War is a good old strategy game, just as his predecessors in Battle Isle Platinum, where most of the games in that serie works in Crossover (Wrappers are coming soon). Many people know the game Battle Isle from their childhood and love the game-play. Here is the chance to play it on your Mac!

The year is 345 N.A. on the planet Chromos, a civilization that once boasted a flourishing society ruled by the Council of the Wise. Power struggles, corruption, war – that is the reality on Chromos now and, with the Andosia War, the Battle Isle saga continues with new features to the series by bridging the gap between turn based and real time combat.

Download the Wrapper from the link below and when you have OSX Mavericks, you have set these settings first. Then install the GOG.com version of Battle Isle: The Andosia War into the Wrapper and set the start executable to bitaw.exe as the video shows below and launch the game and set your resolution and GFX settings. First time you launch the game resolution aren’t correct, so just quit the game and from that time it will launch in your native resolution normally. Have fun!

Panzer Tactics HD for the Mac!

I ported a game which looks a bit like it a few months back called: Tank Operation: European Campaign and has some aspects of Panzer General 2 also. Well in Panzer Tactics HD you face the same WW2 challenge. Experience history first-hand and join the Soviet Red Army, the German Wehrmacht and the Western Allies. Choose from the three challenging historical campaigns with more than 30 missions and additional scenarios. This game is Steam a game, so you need a Steam Wrapper for it to play. The Steam Wrappers you need to use is: Steambuild1bX11 which can be found in the Steambuild Wrapper folder.

Install instructions:
Get the Wrapper Steambuild1bX11 from the Steam Wrapper Folder mentioned earlier. Extract the Wrapper and do the following extra action: rightclick wrapper show package content –> wineskin –> screen settings –> click “override” and set the resolution to full screen (See screenshot). Then close wineskin and double-click the Wrapper to  login into the Windows Steam. Then get the game from Gamersgate and use the serial to a activate and download the game in Steam. When the game is downloaded, launch it and play! Check out the introduction trailer below to get introduced. Game works awesome!

Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Ceasar for the Mac!

Maybe some of you already know the great strategy game Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greek. It seems that last week a new folloup of the game is released called Hegemony Rome: Rise of Caesar. This game will put you (as the game name describes) in charge of Caesar himself, in a great campaign conquering the lands. This game is Steam a game, so you need a Steam Wrapper for it to play. The Steam Wrappers which are present at the moment, won’t work with the game, so I added a new Steam Wrapper called: Steambuild1bX11 which will and can be found in the Steambuild Wrapper folder.

Install instructions:
Get the Wrapper Steambuild1bX11 from the Steam Wrapper Folder mentioned earlier. Extract the Wrapper and login into the Windows Steam. Then get the game from Gamersgate and use the serial to a activate and download the game in Steam. When the game is downloaded, launch it, and you will notice that the first time it takes about 1 minute to launch the first time (and about 30 seconds the times after that using my Nvidia GT 640M iMac) and will first show the top bar of your Mac osx. To fix that, you have to make the game full screen and change resolution in the game options. When doing so, I suggest to lower the resolution to improve better performance and adjust the advanced graphics as well to “this settings” for even better performance. The game runs fine for me in this settings but this shows that this game will run quite slow on low-end macs with only 256 mb gfx cards. So 512mb GFX card is not luxery here. Check out the introduction trailer below to get introduced.

Demigod for the Mac!

Today another RPG mixed up with strategy game called Demigod! I played the game and works in awesome speed on my Nvidia 640M iMac and tested as well skirmish as tournament games. The game works fine in the Steambuild1 and Steambuild2 Wrapper. So get Demigod from Gamersgate and use the serial to activate in the Steam wrapper and download and play the game! Below I put in the anouncement trailer which show you some gameplay. Have fun!

Demigod is a real-time, tactical strategy game that includes extensive role-playing elements. Choose from several Demigods, each poised for battle with their own unique capabilities and awe-inspiring powers. Vanquish other would-be gods as you gain levels, increase in power, unlock the power of mystic artifacts and slowly battle your way closer to joining the Pantheon.
