More games added to Portingkit!

UPDATE 25-3-2015: Fixed a bug in the Cossacks – Art of war and Cossacks – Back to War file, those should work fine now.

Here another post with an update of the latest games added to the Portingkit. It seems that GOG.com is re-structuring their game files. There are separating combi games in to multiple downloads. This means that if you purchase Cossacks Anthology, you have now 3 separate downloads instead of one file containing all 3 games in one installation. That’s fine of course, but this means the start executable path is changed and also the setup file name. This means for me that I have to adjust those WSI files in the Portingkit. Luckily they are just a few, so I can adjust them quite easily.

I made for Cossacks Anthology, three separate game files because of this: Cossacks Back to War, Art of War and European Wars. So for each game you have to download that specific setup file. It looks like they are forgot or they still have to “part” American Conquest + Fightback because they are still together in one setup file. So for now I added both game in one installer file creating 2 shortcuts to both games. I also made for Tomb Raider IV and Tomb Raider V separate download files.

Then I added Supreme Commander and Supreme Commander – Forged Alliance (On request) which are 2 Steam games . Then 2 other games which are non-steam: Dark Void Zero and SBK 2011.

Then Last but not least 2 free games: Live for Speed and onEscapee! Have fun!

New LucasArts/Disney Wave released on GOG.com!

Finally another LucasArts Wave has been released yesterday. 6 new games from which 3 also for Mac! I will make separate posts of those Mac games. I also ported 2 of those Windows only games which I added to the Portingkit already (Monkey Island 2 SE) and another cool one which I will reveal later today.

Monkey Island 2 Special Edition was ported already but now the Wrapper is updated and has a new Icon and is added to the Portingkit. I also created a Crosstie for the game for the Crossover owners.

Latest games added to Portingkit!

Besides the new game releases in the Portingkit, here also a hand full of free games added the past few days to the Portingkit. To begin with a popular free survival/adventure game called Stranded 2! If you like adventure then this funny adventure game Eye of The Kraken may be interesting for you too! Or if you like strategy, then Toy Defense is a very cool free game as well!

You like action more? What about Soldier of Fortune Community Edition which contains the main game + multiplayer. Or perhaps some flight action in Wings of Fury 2 the remake? They are all available in the Portingkit now, free of charge! Have fun!

Changes:

More games added to Portingkit!

Although I would like to see that the process of adding games to the Portingkit would be faster, games are added day by day.  And with the Latest Portingkit (1.4.12) version there is also added opengl registry support, so I could add the awesome Medal of Honor Warchest game! This WSI file will add the 3 shortcuts with its own cool icon of Medal of Honor Allied Assault and its expansion packs “Spearhead” and “Breakthrough”. This means you can launch all three games within the Portingkit with one click!

The same kind of thing I created for Interstate 76 Arsenal which creates an extra shortcut for the Nitroriders expansion and with Cultures 1+ 2, which adds the 2 shortcuts for those games as well.Then I also added the two Imperialism games: Imperialism and Imperialism 2: The age of Exploration, which also contain new icons and an updated wine engine. This also counts for Settlers 2 – 10th Anniversary and Etherlords 2. And last but not least I added the free game Battleships Forever! Have fun with the Portingkit!

Gatling Gears for Mac!

A re-release for Gattling Gears! Gatling Gears is a nice action game and it works great in the Portingkit (Origin version of the game). Simply download the Portingkit below and download the “Gatling Gears” game download button in the Library server tab. This will automatically create the port and including installation of the Windows Origin into that port. Then It will be a matter of login –> download and install the game. I used the Gamersgate version which contains an Origin serial you can add/activate in Origin. If the Gamersgate link says “not priced” (non-US) use this link… Enjoy!

Note:
There are 2 bugs in Origin where you have to to some manual actions.
1. Turn off the “Ingame Origin” in the Origin preferences (select box).
2. Installation won’t end, so if you see “installing” for a few minutes. Quit Origin and Start the game again and the game will launch.

Game description:
When the Empire begins its reign of destruction in a thirst for natural resources, it’s up to Max Brawley, a retired Gatling Gear pilot, to stop them. Together with his niece and his trusty Gatling Gear unit he must fight his way to the heart of the Empire and eliminate the destruction at its source.

Battlefield 1942 (Origin) for Mac!

On many request including mine :P I present the Origin version of  Battlefield 1942!! This game was until may last your for quite a while a free to play game, but now gone in the database! I was so disappointed because I finally have this working as I wanted and now the game is gone. Luckily I had it already added to my account, but what about multi-player? Because I can only login once in Origin with one account?! Well, luckily I found a solution. First I created another Origin account (the easy part). Then second I tried adding a CD serial of a legal copy I bought in the past, and guess what? It worked! So you can add your old CD serial of Battlefield 1942 in Origin and it will add the game in your account!

So I downloaded the Battlefield 1942 game but it kept installing (One of the only annoying bugs), but you can easily fix this by quiting Origin (after a few minutes to be sure), and then login again and then you are able to launch the game without problems. BUT, before you launch you have to do one more thing…Go to your preferences of Origin and turn off  “ingame Origin”. If you don’t do that, the game will freeze at launch. So make sure this is turned off , also when playing any other game in Origin. Then click play to start the fun!!!

Multi-player: Yes, this is possible. Hook up with a couple of friends in Hamachi and create a LAN game and join each-others multi-player games. The Video below will show you that as well! Enjoy!
