Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands re-release!

On request! I ported Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands again. Somehow the game page wasn’t migrated to the new website last year. Earlier it needed a no CD patch, because it had TAGES DRM, and the game was not (DRM free) available on in comparison with the others Prince of Persia games. But now this game went over to the Ubisoft Uplay game client, and Launches fine from there. So I had to make a Uplay Wrapper for this one. It took some testing because not all went that smooth, but the result is great! Check the trailer below for the trailer of the game and when convinced, download the Wrapper from the game page and extract the Uplay pre-configured Wrapper and login to Uplay and activate the game with a serial from Gamersgate and download and play!

Prince of Persia The Forgotten Sands is the next chapter in the fan-favorite Sands of Time universe. Visiting his brother’s kingdom following his adventure in Azad, the Prince finds the royal palace under siege from a mighty army bent on its destruction. When the decision is made to use the ancient power of the Sand in a desperate gamble to save the kingdom from total annihilation, the Prince will embark on an epic adventure in which he will learn to bear the mantle of true leadership, and discover that great power often comes with a great cost.

Battle Realms for the Mac!

Anther good old game is added to the carlog! Battle Realms is a masterfully crafted real-time strategy game. Cosmetically it is very similar to Warcraft III. It’s not quite as complex as Blizzard’s offering, but it’s got charm and it’s got heart. Everything about Battle Realms is stylish, sleek, and cool. If you enjoy games with high production values and snazzy looks, this game delivers. Check out the trailer below to get an impression of the game.

Kenji, exiled heir to the Dragon throne, must stake his claim in a chaotic world wracked by the subversive intrigues of the Serpent, Wolf, and Lotus clans. Shall he vanquish the land under a campaign of malevolence and terror or restore the war-torn realm to its former glory? Enter Battle Realms and choose your destiny. Explore the history that led up to the events in Battle Realms in Battle Realms: Winter of the White Wolf. Scattered and unorganized, your enslaved Wolf brethren hunger for revolt against their corrupt Lotus Clan masters. You must unite them. You must lead them. You must free them.

List of changes

  • Wineskin.m background daemon has been merged into WineskinLauncher.  Please test thoroughly, including file assocations, and opening the wrapper from Finder, as well as all other functionality and screen options.  Wineskin.m used to be the main brains of the wrapper, so a lot had to change to get it working inside of WineskinLauncher.
  • A D3DBoost checkbox has been added in Screen Options in  This will quickly let you enable/disable the CSMT option for Command Stream in Wine.  This is currently only in Wineskin engines maked D3DBoost, and in the WS9WineCX13.1.0 engine.  It will be in future Wine versions when CSMT becomes standard in Wine.
  • Killall Wineskin button in should work again.
  • Killall Wineskin button will also attempt to clear stuck launchd process to clear up 10810 errors.
  • Fixed a parsing bug in Winetricks update that caused some entries to have the wrong command names and fail to work, such as corefonts and allfonts.
  • Stuck launchd processes will try to be removed at wrapper shut down, if any.  This is to attempt to prevent 10810 errors.
  • In the git repo, projoect folder has been renamed from Wineskin to WineskinApp.
  • In the git repo, WineskinLauncherAS (the Applescript version of the old Launcher) has been removed.
  • In the git repo, Wineskin.m has been removed.

Tryst for the Mac!

Today we have Tryst for you!  Tryst is a competitive Real Time Strategy Game that aims to provide a unique, fast paced spin to the established strategy model that combines player choice with unit customization. If you don’t own the game yet, I strongly advise you to buy Tryst on Gamersgate and use the serial to activate in Steam. When using the Steam Wrapper download the Steambuild1 version and extract the Wrapper with an un-archive program like the free KEKA. Then launch Steam and download the game into Steam and play! For Crossover users, simply download the CrossTie and let Crossover do the rest. Check the game play trailer below.

War has erupted on the lonely planet of Ishtonia IV. Humans and a sentient, mechanical alien race known as the Zali – former collaborators in the mining and processing of the rare compound, Lohum – now see each other as threats to their continued existence on the planet both had so tenuously shared.

Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death for the Mac!

A nice golden oldie action game. There’s a lot to like about Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death. Just one look at the screenies should convince you that we’re talking ancient tech here, but the dated visuals hide a smooth and capable engine. The environments are suitably Dredd-y, and the level design is varied enough to keep attention levels high for the duration of the campaign. The gameplay’s pretty good, too; Dredd’s regenerating shield means that you can always soak up a few bullets no matter how precarious your health gets. As old-school shooters go, it’s a solid, entertaining title. If you don’t own the game yet, I strongly advise you to buy Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death (only $5,99) on

Welcome to Mega-City One, a city of over four hundred million people and everyone of them a potential criminal. Stretching the length of the 22nd century American eastern seaboard, Mega-City One is the most dangerous city on Earth, for it is calculated that one serious crime takes place every second of every day. So dangerous, it demands a special breed of law enforcer.
