C&C Red Alert 2 Wrapper update!

Great news! Past weekend I did another update for Red Alert 2 with great performance boost and fixes. No more issues with resolutions, great speed, just as it used to be. The extra files mentioned in the description (zip file + moving the files (not folder) into the Red Alert 2 Game folder after installation of the game in Origin, are still required! Game runs awesome now! I am still working adding more multiplayer functionality using CCnet or others, but that’s still on my todo list. Enjoy!

Whats new?:
– Performace Improvements
– Fix for possible freezes in 1024×768 resolutions

You can find the updated wrapper in Porting Kit on the server tab, or go to the game page here…

Blitzkrieg 2 Wrapper update and 2 extra expansion ports!

I updated the Blitzkrieg 2 Anthology port. It was split up by GOG.com in 3 separate installers: Blitzkrieg 2, Blitzkrieg 2 – Liberation and Blitzkrieg 2 – Fall of the Reich. So I had to fix the main game installer plus I had to create 2 separate ports for the 2 expansion games. So here we are :) Have fun with this strategy classic!

Whats new?
– Fix of the main game path + setup file detect
– 2 new game ports for the 2 expansions Liberation + Fall of the Reich

All three games have their own game pages here…, here… and here…

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.
