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

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.

Delta Force Series added to Porting Kit

Delta Force Series added to Porting Kit

As promised I added the GOG.com source for the Delta Force series in Porting Kit! This means for the following games Porting Kit have the GOG.com source: Delta Force including multi-player possibility, Dellta Force 2 also includes multi-player. Delta Force Land Warrior (multi-player), Delta Force Extreme (Single player only) and Delta Force Taskforce Dagger (Including Multi-player). All those games also have a cross-tie using Crossover (also for Linux!).

If you don’t own the Delta Force games yet, get them quickly on GOG.com! Have fun with those classics!

Emperor – Rise of a Middle Kingdom GOG.com version added to Porting Kit and Crossover!

Great news! GOG.com released the digital version of Emperor – Rise of the middle Kingdom! This game is similar to the very popular Caesar 3 and Zeus & Poseidon and Pharaoh & Cleopatra city builder games. So I added the GOG.com source as soon as I could to Porting Kit and made a Crosstie for Crossover as well. The game works awesome on even low-end Macs as my Macbook Air. Enjoy!

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup files from Emperor when you purchased/owned it.
3. Then for Crossover, simply download the Crosstie… and let Crossover do the work, or in Porting Kit search the game on the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!

Start with a plot of land by the Yang-Tze and end with the Earth’s mightiest empire. Help your people thrive. Discover new technologies. Set taxes, control trade, raise huge armies. Invade other cities and make them yours. Decorate. Do you have what it takes to build the Great Wall? Will you remember to honor your ancestors? Your throne awaits!

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

Red Alert Wrapper update

Red Alert Wrapper update

I heard that Red Alert had some regular crashes, so I looked into it and was able to make it far more stable. Experienced no crashes yet at the moment (played 3 levels) for testing. Also it seemed that CNCnet had an update and needed an update for .net2.0 as well. Those two fixes combined made this update.

I also updated the Cross-tie for Crossover with automatic download and install of Red Alert. So that Crosstie will have exact same features as the Porting Kit has.

Pacific Assault GOG.com version added to Porting Kit/Crossover!

Great news! Medal of Honor – Pacific Assault arrived DRM free on GOG.com! Because of this I added the GOG.com version to Porting Kit and Crossover! The GOG.com version is advised over the Origin version because Origin is a game client where you first need to login to in order to play. So GOG.com version is always recommended above game client version as Uplay/Origin and Steam.

Medal of Honor – Pacific Assault puts you in the boots of a WWII soldier in the Pacific Theater of Operations. As Marine Private Tommy Conlin, you must survive the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor and then join the Allied crusade to defeat Imperial Japan’s bloody conquest of the Pacific. From the attack at Pearl Harbor to the pivotal battle against Japanese Forces at Tarawa Island, Medal of Honor Pacific Assault gives PC gamers a sense of the courage it took to endure and overcome the Japanese threat in WWII and fight for VICTORY in the Pacific.
