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!

Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga update + added to Portingkit!

As you may know Star Wars™ Galactic Battlegrounds Saga  and 5 other Star Wars games are re-released (digital) on! So I managed to get all six of them and made my first update for one of them: Star Wars™ Galactic Battlegrounds Saga! Works great! Multiplayer should work as well in combination with Hamachi. More Star War Wrappers will follow very soon!

I also added another Uplay game to the Portingkit: The Adventures of Tintin:The game and Dungeon Keeper 2.

NFS Hot pursuit Wrapper update!

Here a Wrapper update for the Non-Origin version (origin client doesn’t work yet in Wine) and of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. I still own the digital version of Gamersgate from a few years back which contains a a activation key including the game download and works very nice in the wrapper on my Nviia 640M iMac including login to EA games online services. I fixed an activation bug and and a Gamersgate installer issue (“failed to sign in Error 12056 in network connection”) which prevented you to download the game from Gamersgate using their installer file. Enjoy!
