Wrapper update Civcity Rome and Myst URU Chronicles!

Wrapper update Civcity Rome and Myst URU Chronicles!

We do wrapper updates al the time, but when there are some significant updates we try to post them on the blog as much we can. So here the update for Civcity Rome ! The game needs core fonts, but the Porting Kit somehow failed the fonts trick into the wrapper, which caused you not to see the fonts in-game. With the latest Porting Kit version this is solved! So update Porting Kit (using the top bar menu –> check for updates) to fix the issue.

Myst URU Complete Chronicles had an issue concerning launch probably cause in one of the installer updates of GOG.com. This is fixed to now and doesn’t need an Porting Kit update. Refresh the server tab and make sure the GOG.com setup file is in the download folder and install the game and play

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!
