Uplay games fixed!

Another awesome news! Because of an update of Uplay, all the Uplay games didn’t work anymore because of the Uplay client had massive font and GUI issues. Luckily we have not much Uplay Client games, but still there are a few very popular ones. Although that problem itself is not fixed, we found out a workaround with an older Uplay client version which made the Uplay Client work again and won’t update to a later version automatically :D

This fix have been applied now on al Uplay games! So now you can play the awesome games like: Anno 2070, Silent Hunter IV, Assassin’s Creed Revelation and Rayman Legends and others again!! I tested Anno 2070 and Rayman Legends, and they all work as attended again. Enjoy!

Also now I am writing anyways, make sure you update to latest version of Porting Kit (new update since yesterday), because it has another bunch of nice updates (not required for the Uplay fix but recommended).

Anno 2070 is back + other Uplay games!

Great news! In the latest Wine Staging, the games who earlier didn’t start anymore (Rayman Legends, Flashback, Anno 2070 and Rainbow Six Vegas 2, are now working again! I updated these ports with the Wine staging 2.8 engine and now things finally are starting getting back to normal for Uplay. Of course there are still some client bugs like: Images of game covers or loading for ages and when starting an install it may take up to 5 minutes before the install/download starts, but hey, it’s a one time action (downloading/install) only ;) We hope to get those Uplay client bugs soon fixed as well.

Go quickly to the game page of Anno 2070 up here…

Flashback for Mac

Flashback for Mac

Another Uplay game added to the Paulthetall.com catalog! Flashback for Mac is added to Porting Kit/Crossover. Game works great as well on my low-end Macbook air as on my Intel Iris Mac. The cool part of this Flashback game is that it also contains the old fashion Flashback game from the nineties! I was thrilled to play it again on my Mac.

20 years after the original game’s launch, Conrad is enlisted back to active service for the triumphant return of one of the most acclaimed franchises in gaming history. It is Flashback re-imagined. The original Core-Team revamped their own creation, leveraging the best of today’s technology while remaining true to the classic side-scroller that set the standards of the genre in the 90’s.
