A good thing of the testing the game ports on Big Sur, is that I find out some unreported bugs. We are always busy to improve and fix ports when this get’s reported, but not always things get reported, and then these cases are present untill I find these problems myself. in this case I found this weekend 4 ports which I tested in Big Sur and fixed as well. All the issues mentioned below were issues which were happening in all Mac OS versions (so not Catalina/Big Sur related).
Anno 1602 exe fixed:
The path of the game exe has been changed in one of the updates of the game by GOG.com. This caused installation failures. This has now been fixed.
Settlers IV exe fixed:
The path of the game exe has been changed in one of the updates of the game by GOG.com. This caused installation failures. This has now been fixed
Commandos Beyond Call of Duty (sound sturrer fix)
It seems that the last port update a dsound dll was forgotten to be removed which caused stuterring in the sound. This has now been fixed.
Grand Theft Auto 2 (GTA 2) auto install fix.
This port has been updated to a fully automated game install without requiring to manually download the game.
If you own the game and ran into issues with one of these games, then please search the specific game(s) in the Porting Kit database and install the game again (after downloading the offline backup setup file(s) from your GOG.com game library into your download folder). Enjoy the games!
