Patrician 3 wrapper update

Great news! With the latest Mac OS update and usage of newest engines, Patrician 3 had a bug regarding a black screen after it minimized to the dock and re-opening. In the past after alt+tabbing ia few times the window in some cases it returned good again, but lately with the latest Wine Engines(which is required for Catalina and Big Sur) it didn’t work anymore. This has now been addressed and fixed :)

You can find the updated port in the Porting Kit game library. If you don’t see the “updated” badge in the database, then please restart Porting Kit or refresh the database using the refresh button.

Changes:
– Alt+tab and black screen bug has been fixed.

Phantasmagoria 2 – A Puzzle of Flesh Wrapper update!

It seems that the GOG.com game port Phantasmagoria 2 – A Puzzle of Flesh had an update/switch from the DOSbox version to the ScummVM version. This caused the game installation to fail. So I updated the port to the ScumVM version so all is good again.

Phantasmagoria 2 – A Puzzle of Flesh is an adventure game and the sequel of the first Phantasmagoria which is also available in the Porting Kit database.

Port Changes:
– Main exe update to ScummVM version.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. COP and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky wrapper updates.

Someone mentioned to us that there was an issue with the games: STALKER Call of Pripyat  and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky. The games wouldn’t launch anymore after install. After investigation, it seems that the ports had still the Directx9 Winetrick which has been decommissioned, and needed to be replaced with the “d3dx9” and “directmusic” Winetrick. After this had been done the games now run as attended again. So if you have issues with these games recently in the past with Porting Kit, then please reinstall these games again from the database. You will notice the icons contain an “updated” badge (for coming 2 weeks).

Changes:
– Fixed a Winetrick issue with Directx9 (replaced with d3dx9 and directmusic)

Populous 3 – The beginning wrapper update

I heard that there was an issue with the Populous 3 regarding that main exe path. So I checked it out, and yup, it seems that GOG changed the main exe path from “populous – The beginning” to “Populous 3”, so I needed to adjust that. Now that’s fixed, the port should work again as attended in PK4.  PK3 has already a “safety” build-in which recognizes changes and fixes paths automatically, but that wasn’t build-in into PK4 yet. This is still on the todo list.  So if you own the GOG.com game and you ran into issues in PK4, then please reinstall the game using the new port update in the Porting Kit game library.

Changes:
– Fix main exe path (was changed in the latest update of the GOG.com installer)
