Stronghold Crusader 2 + DLC’S for Mac!

Stronghold Crusader 2  + 4 DLC’s are added to the Porting Kit!  The DLC’s are:  The Templar and the Duke, DLC The Emperor and the Hermit, DLC The Princess and the Pig and DLC The Jackal & the Khan. All of them are tested and works for me :) The Portingkit WSI file is even improved that it will automaticly install the DLC’s as well when you have the installers in your download folder (you do have to select the setup file manually when asked). This feature needs the latest Portingkit version to work (1.8.13), so make sure you check for updates before installing the game. The game works awesome on my Nvidia 640M iMac including DLC’s! Enjoy!

I added the game into the Portingkit and you can play the game on your Mac. For the basic instructions for the Portingkit installation go here…

On request! Heroes V + Expansions are added to the Porting Kit!  This means Heroes 5 + Hamer of Fate, and with a seperate installation for Heroes 5 – Tribes of the East. The games works awesome now with the latest Wine engines! Graphical corruptions are gone at least on Nvidia iMacs, haven’t tested it yet on Intel HD GFX but I have good hopes for that as well.

Desperados – Wanted Dead or Alive Wrapper update and adding to Portingkit!

Yesterday I have been hooked to Desperado’s Wanted Dead or Alive. My first objective was to add the old wrapper of the game to the Portingkit, but I read on Winehq that one of the latest Wine versions fixes 2 bugs: An codec error on startup (what needed a workaround) and a shadow bug (what didn’t show the use panel properly). So I tried to update the wrapper with the latest Engine, but now I had a wierd shiffering issue when the screen moved. Fortunatly I managed to fix that as well! The only small bug left (hardly worth mentioning) is when loading a saved game or un-pauze a game the mouse pointer freezes for a few seconds and works just fine after it.

Now the rest was working I could hardly stop playing because I wanted to finish Level 2 (which I managed to do :P). So now we have finally a properly working port of Desperado’s – Wanted Dead or Alive! So if you don’t have it yet, get it on GOG.com and have some fun!
