Maybe some of you already know the great strategy game Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greek. It seems that last week a new follow-up of the game is released called Hegemony Rome: Rise of Caesar. This game will put you (as the game name describes) in charge of Caesar himself, in a great campaign conquering the lands. This game is Steam a game, so you need a Steam Wrapper for it to play. The Steam Wrappers which are present at the moment, won’t work with the game, so I added a new Steam Wrapper called: Steambuild1 which will and can be found in Porting Kit.
Get the Wrapper Steambuild1 from the Steam Wrapper Folder mentioned earlier. Extract the Wrapper and login into the Windows Steam. Then get the game from Kinguin and use the serial to a activate and download the game in Steam. When the game is downloaded, launch it, and you will notice that the first time it takes about 1 minute to launch the first time (and about 30 seconds the times after that using my Nvidia GT 640M iMac) and will first show the top bar of your Mac osx. To fix that, you have to make the game full screen and change resolution in the game options. When doing so, I suggest to lower the resolution to improve better performance and adjust the advanced graphics as well to “this settings” for even better performance. The game runs fine for me in this settings but this shows that this game will run quite slow on low-end macs with only 256 mb gfx cards. So 512mb GFX card is not luxery here. Check out the introduction trailer below to get introduced.
