*Update* future plans Porting Kit!

*Update* future plans Porting Kit!

Hey Guys, here a quick heads up for the plans with Porting Kit coming time (coming 12 months). This also because their might be many questions regarding the 64Bit only transition of Apple of the coming Mac OS and the effect on it on Porting Kit and how further.

Well I can say we are working hard on the future of Porting Kit, to make the past 6/7 years not be in vain with our over a 1000 game ports. Mojave in combination of Porting Kit has some challenges itself as well and requires in many cases to turn on the “unofficial Wineskin” option (using the Porting Kit Preferences –> unofficial Wineskin selectbox). For example Dragon Age Ultimate has some massive performance issues when not using latest Wineskin version (TCCD process is taking lots of  CPU usage).

New updated GUI:
First change will be very soon (timespan weeks), that we change the GUI to a better overview one. The Local library will dissapear as an tab and your ports will be visible on the side, a little bit in the way of GOG Galaxy (picture link) has that implemented. So this saves confusion when you are in local tab or server tab. Now it will be more clear that your installed ports are now on the side bar and the server ports are in the middle/other side.

Linux version of Porting Kit:
Yes, it was whispered in the past, but after the new GUI, this will consume our most attention. A Linux version of Porting Kit. Reason 1, to expand the Porting Kit reach, but even more important, with the future in mind, we need a Linux version to be able to run a Mini Linux version in a Virtual Machine for the smaller 32-bit games. What that means I will explain below. For the Linux version we would gladly receive some help. Are you a Linux programmer? You love Porting Kit? You volunteer to help us out? please contact us (in this case Vitor) using the contact form and help us to make the Linux version ASAP. This would be a great help making the next step possible: Porting Kit Classic (32-bit Virtual Machine)

Porting Kit Classic and Porting Kit Future:
As the subject above already mentions, we gonna split up Porting Kit in 2 versions as it looks like so far. A Porting Kit Classic version which is a very small Virtual Machine with a 32-bit Linux/Porting Kit environment to play the more smaller 32 bit games. Think about titles like: Rollercoaster Tycoon, Heroes 3, Caesar 3, Pharaoh, and tons of other classics. The other Porting Kit will be 64-bit and run the 64bit games and Directx11 in combination with Vulcan (needs some more Wine love for Mac but when 64bit Mac OS will be a fact, this will ready or almost ready). More details on all of this will follow when time will pass.

Other implementations:
Other stuff which is also in the planning, and will be worked out between the projects, is Chat and Network support, so users of Porting Kit can play games with each-other using LAN/WAN support.

So again, if you have Linux programming skills and want to help out, let us know.

New Steam ports working again (PK 2.9.444)

Hello everyone! In case you have tried to install a Steam port recently, you probably received the infamous error “Content servers unreachable”. Well, don’t worry. That bug was just fixed :)

Update the Porting Kit for the latest version (2.9.444), and newly created Steam ports should work like a charm. The fix is made by PK during the port installation. In case you have any port with the bug, reinstall it with the latest version, or, if you prefer, you can fix it manually.

You can update PK by pressing Porting Kit -> Check for Updates….

Vampire the Masquerade Las Vegas vs Popular Slots

Vampire: The Masquerade-Las Vegas is a browser slot game, using the setting of the popular video game, Vampire: The Masquerade. The developer company White Wolf and Foxium had struck a deal to license the Vampire game for a slot machine game, in 27 January, 2016. In November 2017, they released Las Vegas, a 5×3 slot game themed around Vampire, featuring a vampire and his prey in a modern Las Vegas setting.

The Basics
Vampire: The Masquerade-Las Vegas takes its theme from the RPG computer game, Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines. The computer game was highly acclaimed as one of the best RPGs and it’s titles being continued seems a good idea for it’s fans. The Las Vegas slot game has an advantage than other games, because of it’s well knows developer White Wolf. The theme is dark and gothic and it creates a fantastic playing atmosphere. The graphic details are phenomenal and occasionally rain drops hit your screen. As always, the video game has shown to its fans a well written story and all of its characters give an impact to the player. The same happens to the slot game Las Vegas. It begins with a story and you have to keep playing in order for the story to progress.

The game is played on a 5×3 grid with various possible matching sequences that can help the story progress. Just like in-game, there is a Blood bar and a Disciple bar, disciple is a vampire power in-game, that helps interact with the people more easily and by using vampire powers. Discipline, in Las Vegas, is listed as Pick Me bonus title. When the Disciple bar or Blood is full, based on how you played the slot game, a new sequence appears that can trigger a free spin.

The Cons
The Vampire: Masquerade-Las vegas has a real good rating for it’s originality unlike the other online slot games. Unfortunately is only a very few online casino websites including its developer. The popular slots games, like Lucky Lady Charm, Book of Ra and so on are even more well known than Vampire, because they are found not only online, but also outside of the screen, in slot bars and physical casinos. But not everyone is a fan of vampires, most people don’t even want to hear about fantastic creatures, and most of the gamblers like to play the popular ones, because they are easy to play, unlike Las Vegas that requires different type of spins in order to achieve a story progression. The Admiral Casino has the most popular slot games in its reserve. And has a higher popularity because it’s everywhere, outside in the world and also inside, on the screens of its users.

He needs your help

Hello, I’m VitorMM, the Porting Kit developer. If you talked with us by mail you may have talked with me already. I’m not used to post here in (most of the time I only post about the Porting Kit updates), but these are times of need; I’m here to ask for your help.


That one is my cousin, Vinícius. He’s 10 years old, is a young writer, love playing drums, but has contracted leukemia, and his life might be in the very end. The chemotherapy wasn’t capable of curing him, so his only hope is a bone marrow donation.

The bone marrow can be donated multiple times, since your body regenerates it. When you register a sample of your blood for bone marrow stem cells donation, it may match with anyone in the world. You may save his life, another person’s life; maybe you can save many people.

So, please, research about bone marrow donation in your country. Donate. Vinícius, and other children around the world, may don’t have much time.
