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!

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!

Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga Wrapper update + Video!

As you may know Star Wars™ Galactic Battlegrounds Saga has been added to the Portingkit. It still had a music issue (no music at startup) and had not the DLC campaigns added with the executable set. It appeared that the executable needed to be set to “battlegrounds_x1.exe” to fix all this. I tested as well a level in DLC campaign as the normal campaign and even played a multiplayer game using Hamachi.

I made an updated video of the gameport to show how you can play it using the Portingkit including some gameplay. Works great! Enjoy this amazing LucasArt classic!
