Might & Magic V – Tribes of the East wrapper update!

On many many request I finally found time to look into this port, and fixed the massive performance issue. The port is running in good speed now. So if you own the Heroes V bundle game already (contains Heroes V and Hammers of Fate + Tribes of East DLC), then you can download the Tribes of the East DLC  “Offline backup setup” file and bin files from your GOG.com game library into your download folder and start the install on the server library or click install on the porting Kit game page… . If you don’t own the game yet, you can buy this game DRM free from the GOG.com game shop.

Wrapper changes:
– Latest Wine engine.
Slow performance (fixed)
– Small bug fixes

Check out the Porting Kit game page up here…

Stronghold Crusader 2
– Updated to latest Wine engine
– Fix of launching the game.

Trails in the Sky SC and Trails in the Sky the 3rd:

Lots of Wrapper updates!

Lots of Wrapper updates!

And some many more Wrapper updates! GOG.com updated a lot of setup file names which caused some setup mismatches. Also there was a game which has been changed from DOS version to SCUMVM version. Besides that some other games needing and update to work proper again. If that is enough we updated all the Steambuild wrappers to the unofficial WS10 engine which fixes the Steam Store and Steam Chat with friends. This unofficial WS10 is not applied yet on all Steam games because not all games work properly in the WS10 Engine, so through time we hope to update all Steam wrappers with the fix, but until now we first need to meet up some challenges/bugs to resolve. Stay tuned!

So here a bunch of games received an update:

Setup mismatch fix updates:
Settlers IV
Settlers V
Caesar II
Heroes of Might & Magic 2
Star Wars Rebellion

DOS => ScumVM Fix update:
– Phantasmagoria

Other Wrapper Fixes:
– Commandos Beyond the Call of Duty
Rune Classic
Might & Magic 8

Enjoy the wrapper updates! And oh, get the games cheap up to 90% off while you can on the still running Spring Sale on GOG.com!

Some port updates and news and coming soon games!

Here some news from our side. It’s bin for all of us a busy period, and Apple doesn’t makes it easy on us to come along with all of their changes, which causes issues we needed to resolve. So here a couple of things going on.

We managed to do some wrapper updates yesterday:
Age of Empires 3 (fixed an expansian of The Asian Dynasties).
Gothic 2 (fixed the setup recognition in the download folder)

New games coming to Porting Kit very soon:
– About 4 more strategic command games

Game port removed:
– Production line (64bit only now, not supported/ported yet, hope in not to long to re-add the game)

If you run into issues with a specific installation, or if the setup file names seems to be changed, please let us know in the contact form. We will try to adjust/fix this as soon as possible. We rely on you guys because we cannot test all 1000+ games regularly, so we need to know it from you guys if you run into it. Thanks in advance!

Brother in Arms Earned in Blood and Hell’s Highway also added to Porting Kit!

A bit late, because they were already added the same week as Road to Hill 30, but Brothers in Arms – earned in Blood and Hell’s  Highway are now available in Porting Kit as well :) Brothers in Arms brings you back to WWII in a true story. Especially the Hell’s Highway episode has the best graphics and makes this game a must have for any WW2 shooter fans. The games are available on GOG.com and one of the limited games I really played from start to end. Especially for Hell’s Highway, a medium to High-end Mac is recommended. The other 2 runs very smooth on even low-end Macs :)

Get the new added games on the specific game pages here… and here… ow and while I am busy anyways, Road to Hill 30 here…

Age of Empires 3 Wrapper update!

Here a quick heads-up. With Steam dropping support for WinXP and Porting Kit auto-updating the steam ports, the game didn’t work properly anymore in the Windows 7 Environment port. So I fixed that for Age of Empires 3. So everyone experiencing the issue, trash the old wrapper and reinstall the new one and start the fun! I also checked Age of Empires 2 HD and that one seems still to run fine. Besides that the launcher has some more colors then before :P, it launches fine for me after a clean install.

Get the Age of Empires 3 port up here… or find it on the server tab on Porting Kit.

Lot’s of wrapper updates past 2 weeks!

More then 20 Wrapper updates with fixes, extras and adjustments. There is happening a lot at GOG.com lately where they update games and changed DOS versions of the game to SCUMMVM version, which means almost a total new port to get it working again. Besides that they have the habit to change the setup file name often as well which I need to change as well. In short, they keep me busy quite a bit. Below more detailed the changes I’ve done.

Specific fixes:

DeusEx (Text adjustment in description)
Heroes of Hamerswatch (Macdriver switch)
Tombraider II (setup file adjustment)
Tombraider III (setup file adjustment)
Super Power 2 (setup file adjustment)
Blood and Gold – Caribbean (Video fix in description + some adjusted info)
Atlantis 3 (setup file adjustment)

GOG.com Games where the Installer setup changed and went from DOS version to SCUMMVM version.
Space Quest I
Space Quest II
Space Quest III
Kings Quest IV
Kings Quest V
Kings Quest VI

Engine update + Mac driver switch
Anno 1701
Anno 1602
Anno 1503
Anno 1404

If you experienced issues with some of these games (Like the DOS update to SCUMVM games I mentioned, then please retry installing them again. Enjoy the games!

Lots of wrapper updates!

Lots of wrapper updates!

There have been lots of game updates on GOG.com lately which in some cases also involves of updated installer files. This may cause some unexpected porting kit messages in the install process which you not may expect normally that it asks to choose your own setup file. So those changes are covered, but hinders the automatic process that Porting Kit automatically opens the setup file for you. So for some of those cases I made an update of these games so Porting Kit will automatically recognize the offline backup setup installer files again. Because of this, I could also look into the ports itself to see if newer engines improve the performances or bug fixes. Below the results.

Enjoy the updates of the game! If you run into installation problems with any game, let us know using the contact form! Then we can fix it. We need you guys for this :) Thanks!
