Star Wars: Empire at War Gold for Mac

Another Awesome Star Wars Game added to the Paulthetall.com Website and Portingkit! This time it is Star Wars: Empire at War Gold.  This GOG.com version contains as well the Standard Star Wars: Empire game including the Forces of Corruption expansion. Tested both games on my Nvidia 640M iMac and it works great! Played, planet battles and Galactic battles without any issues! Hope you will have just at much fun as I have with this game! The game is added into the Portingkit with 2 shortcuts to both games. Check out the video below for the instructions and some game-play!

Notes:
– Good video-card recommended.
– Keep all graphics except Detail level (medium).

From the lives of soldiers to the deaths of planets, you are the supreme galactic commander. It is a time of galactic civil war. Take up the reins of the Rebellion or assume control for the Empire. Whichever you choose, it will be up to YOU to steer your side to ultimate victory. Command everything from individual troops to starships and even the mighty Death Star as you execute campaigns on the ground, in space and across the galaxy. Forget tedious resource gathering – just jump straight into the heart of the action. You can even change Star Wars history! Every decision affects your next battle and every battle helps shape the fate of the galaxy.

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “Star Wars: Empire Gold” game and click download. If you don’t own the game yet the Portingkit can direct you to the game page where to purchase it and download the setup/download file into your download folder. When you clicked “no” and were directed to the game page, you have to click “download” again and then click “yes” so the Portingkit will install the game for you. After installation the Portingkit will say the installation was done successfully. Then go to your “local” tab where you can select the game and click “play”!

Star Wars Rebellion for Mac!

On request, the return of the game Star Wars Rebellion on Paulthetall.com. The game was removed because of a bug that you cannot do the manual galactic battles (it will crash if you do so), so automatic battles will only work. Despite of this bug a lot of people still want to play this old diamond. So because of this bug I cannot add it into the Portingkit, but have made an exception Wrapper for this one. This way people who want to play the game and don’t care about the manual galactic battles can still enjoy this game. Below the video with some game-play in the Portingkit before it was removed :P.

Before downloading the wrapper, make sure security settings are set correctly when you have Mavericks OSX or higher. Then simply download the Wrapper below and extract the file and double-click the wrapper–> get and download Star Wars Rebellion on GOG –> install windows software –> navigate to the GOG.com installer file and double-click it –> Installing the game into the Wrapper and at the end of installation click “exit”. Now double-click the wrapper and play!  For more info about porting go up here…

Important: Game contains bug that you cannot do the manual galactic battles (it will crash if you do so) so thats why this game is Wrapper only and not added to Portingkit. This Wrapper is available only because on request.

Disciples 3 Renaissance for the Mac!

Disciples III: Renaissance is the next title in the award winning Disciples series and represents a leap forward in the evolution of the turn-based RPG/strategy genre. Building on the successes of the first two games, DIII introduces a host of new features as well as the compelling gameplay that made the previous titles such hits. As a Lord of one of the fantastical races of Nevendaar you must fight to restore your deity’s rule over your world.

The game is available on Gamersgate and works very well on my Nvidia iMac. I played the game for about an hour without any issues. The game Works also on Intel HD, but you have to set the graphical settings on “medium” or there will be graphical glitches in the game and or map. Check out the video below for the visual instructions and some game-play.
