Hearts of Iron 2 Complete for Mac

We already had the first Hearts of Iron game we already added to Porting Kit and now we added Hearts of Iron 2 complete as well. The Complete version contains both the main game and the two expansions, Doomsday and Armageddon. Those are separated in two installers, so I made 2 ports for the game: Hears of iron 2 and Hearts of Iron 2 – Doomsday.  Simply install it into porting Kit with the simple steps and Enjoy!

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup files from Hearts of Iron 2 Complete from GOG into your download folder.
3. Then in when you own Crossover use this CrossTie or when you use  Porting Kit search the games (both) on the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!

Game Description:
Hearts of Iron 2 is the sequel to the most appreciated World War II PC game of true Grand Strategic scope ever made. As in its forbear, the map spans the entire world and allows you to play one of over 175 countries during the course of World War II. The game is completely revised with an updated combat system, a new map, revised and easy-to-use interface, new technology tree and hundreds of other updates and improvements.

Hearts of Iron 2 Complete for Mac

Still Life for Mac

Also here counts that the Mac version of Still Life on GOG.com is not Compatible with 10.3x High Sierra. So I created a Mac port for the game in Porting Kit as well. Now you can still play the game using Porting Kit using the GOG.com Windows setup files in 10.13 High Sierra. Remember that you need to download the WINDOWS setup files and NOT the “Mac” dmg file, because that Mac version won’t work in High Sierra. So you love the game and want to play it in High Sierra? Then download the Windows setup files into your download folder and install the game into Porting Kit. Enjoy!

Game description:
The producers of Syberia I and Syberia II are proud to present Still Life. Victoria McPherson, is a brilliant young FBI agent who’s investigating a serial murder case. The body count is now at five and with the lack of real leads and a moutain of circumstantial evidence, Victoria is beginning to show signs of fatigue and stress. She decides to take a break and go rest at her father’s home in suburban Chicago; after all, it is close to the Christmas holidays. However, Victoria does not find rest.

Evil Genius added to Porting Kit

The GOG.com Mac version of Evil Genius  doesn’t work in 10.13x High Sierra. So I created a Mac port for the game in Porting Kit . Now you can still play the game using Porting Kit using the GOG.com Windows setup files in 10.13 High Sierra. Remember that you need to download the WINDOWS setup files and NOT the “Mac” dmg file, because that Mac version won’t work in High Sierra. So you love the game and want to play it in High Sierra? Then download the Windows setup files into your download folder and install the game into Porting Kit. Enjoy!

Dungeons 3 released for Mac

Dungeons 3 has been released for Mac on GOG.com. It’s the successor of Dungeons 2, which is also available for Mac. Dungeon’s is a kind of dungeon master where you have to create an army and defeat the other party.

The game is full of content and sports even a co-op mode – which is lovely to have. Between a good (if predictable) campaign, solid skirmish and multiplayer it has a lot to offer. So if you dont want to spend all your time fighting, and enjoy the fun of building a fancy trap filled death dungeon this might be one to pick up.

Get this Mac game on GOG.com up here…

Trash or backup/move the old wrapper out of the applications\games folder and download the 32 bit Banished  GOG setup file into your download folder.
