Warhammer 40k Dawn of War (Steam) added to Porting Kit.

It seems that the Warhammer 40K Dawn of War game has been deleted from the Gamersgate game catalog. The  users mentioning this showed me that there is still a Steam version of this game. So I purchased the collection, and added The first one: Warhammer 40K Dawn of War game GOTY. The rest will follow very soon, so check the blog regularly. Game works awesome by the way ;).

Prepare yourself for the grim, dark future of the 41st millennium, where alien races battle mankind for galactic domination in a universe of unending war.  Personalize your armies with a revolutionary unit customization tool that gives you the ability to choose your armies insignias, banners, squad colors and names.

Battlefield Vietnam added to Porting Kit!

And here we have the missing Battlefield in the series: Battlefield Vietnam :) If you own the CD version of the game, then you can use it to play it on your Mac! Works great! The install script is added into Porting Kit so enjoy this one!

Battlefield Vietnam has the same point by point objectives of Battlefield 1942; in most maps, the objective is to take Control Points around the map to enable friendly players and controllable vehicles to spawn. Like other Battlefield games, Spawn tickets play a vital role for defeat of a Team. Battlefield Vietnam features a revolutionary form of asymmetrical warfare gameplay. The two teams (American or Vietnamese) are given wildly different kits and vehicles, making the U.S. rely more on heavy vehicles and the Vietnamese rely more on infantry tactics.

Some Porting Kit game fixes!

Maybe you have noticed that sometimes a specific game name gets colored orange again. In that case this game has been re-uploaded with a specific change. Sometimes it may only bee something with the description, but sometimes it may also be an update of the game wrapper. It may be because of game fixes or performance improvements, but also if the the installer of GOG.com changed the path to the start exe file. That last one was the case of Heroes of Might & Magic 2. This has been fixed now.

Second, Live for speed! That game got an update to version S3_6M, which needed the download updated, but even then the game wouldn’t run anymore because of graphical corruption and error messages. Well that is fixed now with this latest update.

Last but not least an update for Grand Theft Auto 2, which had a bug crashing after a very short while of play. That is fixed now with the latest update of the game in Porting Kit.

Also on request: Neverwinter Nights 2 is added to Porting Kit!Updated the wrapper to one of the latest engines for better performance. I played/tested the game on my Nvidia 640M Imac and runs quite smooth when all extra details are turned off. For the fans, have fun with this one!

Bards sing tales of heroes in ages past, but they rarely mention those that are yet to become heroes. One such hero is a farmer in the small village of West Harbor. Raised by the elven ranger, Daeghun, as his own child, our hero will embark on a grandiose quest against the King of Shadows. Neverwinter Nights 2 is the tale of his deeds.

The notes about how to do that are written in the extra notes of the port description in the Portingkit application. Enjoy.

Desperados – Wanted Dead or Alive Wrapper update and adding to Portingkit!

Yesterday I have been hooked to Desperado’s Wanted Dead or Alive. My first objective was to add the old wrapper of the game to the Portingkit, but I read on Winehq that one of the latest Wine versions fixes 2 bugs: An codec error on startup (what needed a workaround) and a shadow bug (what didn’t show the use panel properly). So I tried to update the wrapper with the latest Engine, but now I had a wierd shiffering issue when the screen moved. Fortunatly I managed to fix that as well! The only small bug left (hardly worth mentioning) is when loading a saved game or un-pauze a game the mouse pointer freezes for a few seconds and works just fine after it.

Now the rest was working I could hardly stop playing because I wanted to finish Level 2 (which I managed to do :P). So now we have finally a properly working port of Desperado’s – Wanted Dead or Alive! So if you don’t have it yet, get it on GOG.com and have some fun!
