Thrillville: Off the Rails GOG port!

As you may know, GOG.com added recently Thrillville: Off the Rails to their game catalog. This was a good opportunity to add the GOG.com source of the game into Porting Kit as well. So here we are! If you purchased Thrillville: Off the Rails on GOG.com you will now be able to install and play the game DRM free out of the box :) Have fun!

You can find the GOG.com source in the game port when you search the game in Porting Kit on the library tab or check out the game page on the Porting Kit website up here…

Some game port fixes!

Once in a while through time, some game ports may run into some issues when games are updated by GOG or Steam or because of an OS update by Apple or other situations. In that case an update of a port is required. Important in that case is, that the people notify us when something like that happens, so we can fix them. Past days we pushed through a fix for Victoria Complete and Lost Horizon. check the fixes below.

Victoria Complete:
– Music fix
– Fix stuck black screen on startup.

Lost Horizon:
– Fix a crash in-game in chapter 2 (sound codec)

If you have these games and ran into the same issues, then re-install the updated game ports again in Porting Kit. Or use the install now buttons on the game pages at the portingkit.com website: here… and here…

Syberia and Syberia 2 port updates and new videos (works also on M1 Apple Silicon Macs)

Great news! Now you have obtained Syberia (or when you are quick to get it now freely!) and Syberia 2, you can play this game on Big Sur and if you have an Apple Silicon Mac, play Syberia and Syberia 2 on that as well! You can find the 2 ports in the Porting Kit game library.

I even made 2 videos about that (Syberia and Syberia 2) playing the games on my M1 Apple Silicon Mac Mini. I like the second video the best myself :) Check them out below:

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.

You can find all those updated games in your Porting Kit game library and will contain an “updated” badge. If you don’t see it, restart the Porting Kit app.

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.
– Updated the game description with updated info.
