C&C Tiberian Dawn update + video tutorial!

Awesome news!! We finally made the free C&C Tiberian Dawn stable! Earlier the port was crashing regularly which was made it quite annoying in longplay. but now those horrors are over! With the latest update, the game is steady and stable! Yes that’s right, play this awesome classic again on your Mac including multiplayer options and all extra goodies! Considering that this free game port was part of the “Premium/VIP” games set, please consider donating to the paulthetall.com project (thanks in advance!).

To make it even more complete, the game got a clear video tutorial including some gameplay to show every step from scratch to end how to play it in a few simple steps on your Mac! Enjoy!

Steam sources added for 18 Wheels Of Steel Long Haul and Extreme Trucker!

Kinguin is supporting Porting Kit/Paulthetall.com with a small amount of “Bonus EurBalance” per month so I can purchase a couple of games per month in order to port them. This month I purchased 5 Steam games to make new game ports and extra Steam sources for existing game ports. Two of them are 18 Wheels of Steel Long Haul and Extreme Trucker. Both games have besides a Gamersgate Source, now also a Steam source (=Windows Steam Client install where you can add the game serial, and then download and play the game).

Yes, this means the bug loading a saved game ending in corrupt graphics is now in the past! Also the game plays in widescreen now!!! Yes, in short, the game is as good as native Windows! So grab the Rollercoaster Tycoon Deluxe from gog.com and download the setup file into your download folder and let Porting Kit do the rest!

Lords of Magic for Mac

Lords of Magic was a game which was on the border to be ported or not. It had some nasty bugs, but I am happy to inform it works great now :D Nice speed and a fix in the install wizard of GOG, which made some text invisible including the install/exit/launch buttons. In short a full fix of the game! If you don’t have it, yet  get it now!

Changes:
–  Speed fix to perfect :)
– Fix GOG install wizard

Medal of Honor Warchest Wrapper update With Multiplayer fix + Widescreen Utility!

And here another extensive video tutorial about Medal of Honor Warchest, which has been updated in Porting Kit. In this video I explain the total install process from scratch to end using Porting Kit including the Widescreen Utility (to adjust resolution to widescreen resolution like 1920×1080) and the long awaited Multiplayer fix!! As you all may know, Gamespy stopped supplying support for game servers, so mohreborn took over that job, and now there are over 300 game servers available again! So where are you waiting for? Get the game from GOG, install it in Porting Kit and play! And maybe we will meet (Paulthetall) some time in one of the multiplayer rooms! Enjoy!

Red Alert 2 + C&C Renegade Wrapper update!

As promised! The Red Alert 2 and C&C Renegade update with Activation.dll fix! As mentioned in the previous post about the Origin Activation.dll fix which included the fix for the rest of the Origin games in the Porting Kit, now those last 2 games which are included in the C&C Ultimate edition (only about $8), which also includes C&C 3 + Kanes Wrath, Red Alert 3 + Uprising and C&C Generals!

Red Alert 2 I have added some extra notes (to add a couple of files for best performance) and played 3 levels without issues in 800×600 resolution. Also Renegade works just awesome (native Windows). Enjoy!

Origin Activation.dll final fix!!

Ladies and Gentlemen attention please! Finally, yes finally we implanted a decent fix for the Origin activation DLL issues. In the past we needed to use specific patches to workaround that issue and even then there were some people where it still caused problems. However!! There is finally an official fix for this problem (a pre-loader) which fixes this issue once and for all! I nice extra with the new engine, is that the crash after install is fixed as well! I will test and update all Origin games this weekend and coming week. I already did the update for the games:

The rest will follow shortly. Red Alert 2 and C&C renegade have a regression in the latest Wine versions, so that still needs to be fixed before I will update these Engines. This means the games still work using the old fashioned patches, but the engine with pre-loader will follow shortly as well!

 

Mass Effect Wrapper update!

Great news! The Mass Effect port got an update this weekend. I managed to fix the cut off conversations in the game :). Besides that I managed to get Mass Effect 2 working as well, so you can expect a release of that port as well! The WSI in Porting Kit is updated now, so if you install (or re-install when you already have the game installed) then the fix will be implanted!

Changes:
– Fixed in-game cut-off conversations

Heroes of Might & Magic 3 Porting kit update

Heroes of Might & Magic 3 Porting kit update

GOG.com released an updated setup/installer for Heroes of Might & Magic  3, this had as consequence that the map and level editor didn’t work anymore  in Porting Kit. After I got notified about that, I fixed the setup.exe name and the path’s to the specific exe files. So with a new install, this should all work properly again. Thanks for notifying! If you run into installation issues, like this with a game let us know! Then we can fix it.

Changes:
– Fixed setup detection GOG.com
– Fixed exe path for main game and Editors.
