Video tutorial: How to make your old Wineskin wrappers compatible with OSX 10.11 El Capitan.

I made a video about how to make your old Wineskin wrappers compatible with OSX 10.11 El Capitan. Hope this will help a lot of guys with their Wrapper problems. This video also promotes the use of the Portingkit and shows a bit how the porgram works. Enjoy!

When you have any questions or issues post it on the forum. We love to help you out with any issues.

Portingkit now compatible with OSX 10.11 – El Capitan!

Great news! Thanks to the Wineskin Developer and Vitor (our Portingkit developer) the Portingkit is compatible with El Capitan! But wait, that’s not all, all existing ports in the Portingkit will be automatically updated when you click “play” in the local library tab!

Portingkit will go even further then that! Every Wineskin port you will manually add into Portingkit will automatically updated and compatible with EL Capitan! Is that awesome or what?!

When you haven’t updated the Portingkit yet, then close the application and restart it so it will be updated. If you haven’t the Portingkit yet, you can get it up here…

More game ports added to the Portingkit!

A lot of good old games are added at the moment. Last post about added games to Portingkit were a lot of Nordic games. Here are some more for the version. This means that the Gamersgate WSI/download file was already present, but now the version is added for the same game as well. I did that for the games Aquanox, Aquanox 2.

Then here some “new” games I added to Portingkit. First to make the Black Mirror series complete: Black Mirror 3 is added. I also added most of the King’s Quest series starting with Kings Quest I Remake (the original Mac version crashes on start-up). In the same post I added links to the 2 other King’s Quest remakes with a working Mac version.

Then I added also Kings Quest IV, King’s Quest V and King’s Quest VI which comes in one package from They all have separate WSI/Download files because they have separate installer files. Enjoy!

Lots of “new” games added to Portingkit!

It has been busy the past few days, but in the little time I had, I added a dozen or so games to the Portingkit. Observant people may have seen a lot of orange colored games the past few days, which were basically re-adding versions of Nordic games which returned after almost a year. I re-added: Neighbours from Hell 1 + 2, and Silver.

New Adventure games I added in the Portingkit are: Black Mirror 1 and Black Mirror 2. Then some action games: Chaser, Raiden III Digital and Judge Dredd – dredd vs death . Strategy games: Patrician 3,  Desperados 2, The Guild 2 and Imperial Glory. Enjoy the games and lot are following :)

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 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!

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.

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!
