New video tutorial about: “What is Porting Kit?”.

Because we regularly we get questions about what Porting Kit does and is, we made a video introduction about it. Watch it below. It shows the link between Porting Kit and Wineskin and the opensource code Wine. It’s just over a minute long :)

Metal Gear Solid released on + added in Porting Kit!

Awesome news!!! Yes I couldn’t believe it myself as well. Metal Gear Solid has reached the Shelves on!! Tonight I added the Source to Porting Kit and the day after tomorrow I will focus on Metal Gear 2 :) And yes yes, I will also look into the MSX version and to the other Konami collection of Contra and Castlevania. But first things first! Metal Gear Solid! Oh, I love the game and played it a lot in these days and in a matter of fact recently as well.

Update –> I added an extra exe for the VR missions as well now :) So after installation of the game you will see 2 icons: 1 for the main game and 1 for the VR missions.

And because the version was launched last friday, I added the source today as well + a brand new video tutorial! Yes thats right, and not just a normal video tutorial, no, a video with a a sneakpeak of Porting Kit 4.0 in Mac OS Big Sur 10.16! Yesseree, and you will love as much as I do. The beta is way close for release and only needs some finetuning before the beta will be released for the public!

Oh, and the game will of course work and install in Porting Kit 3.0 as well. Enjoy the game and enjoy the video and I have to say….get this game instanly on and start playing! :)

New Porting Kit 3.x install and usage video tutorial + Sneakpeak Porting Kit 4.0!

Here a new video tutorial with the old in and outro about how to install games ( and Steam) in Porting Kit with Porting Kit 3.x. It also gives a sneakpeak of Porting Kit 4.0 which is coming very soon as Beta. Porting Kit 4.0 does not need SIP disabled and is notorised and signed, so Catalina security ready :). Besides that Porting Kit 4.0 will be more stable and will have way more possibilities.

This video tutorial has been especially created because of the recent extra step of selecting the setup file which is recently required to prevent bugs of Catalina security. Enjoy the tutorial!

2 more video tutorials installing Red Alert 2 and Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds in Porting Kit on Mac OS Catalina.

I made 2 more video tutorials while installing Red Alert 2 (frist Decade DVD version) into Porting kit in Catalina and Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds ( version). The video shows also some basic install info of Porting Kit preventing unnecessary bugs and issues. In Porting Kit 4.0 those issues will not be there because then the app will be signed and noterised and some other stuff. All focus now is on PK 4.0 so we need to “live” with the existing bugs at the moment. If you have issues with Portingkit make sure to check this Porting Kit tutorial page…

The games work great and check them out :)

Red Alert 2 Porting Kit video tutorial + many more!

On request we made past weeks dozens of instruction videos to make people more familiar with Porting Kit. The Porting Kit is out of itself quite easy to use, but to embrace the new comers, we made video tutorials where the game gets installed from scratch into Porting Kit. Because Red Alert 2 is one of the most popular ones, I made a very clear install tutorial (see below) which can of course also be found in the port itself.

Besides Red Alert 2 we created over 25 other video install tutorials for like: Grand Theft Auto 2, Anno 1602 and Commandos 2 and Commandos 3 and many more!

We will add many more videos coming time so if you have any requests, mail it to us so we can prioritize the creation of the videos.

Dishonored for Mac Gameplay video!

Since a long time I made a gameplay video of the Dishonored game! The performance of the game is great on even a medium-end iMac as my Intel Iris. Imagine how it runs on high end Macs! I played the game already for 1.5 hours, so yeah, for RPG lovers this game is a must have. I explain in the video a little bit the installation process, but will be mostly gameplay.
