The Interstate ’76 Arsenal for the Mac!

Great news! I managed to port The Interstate ’76 Arsenal to the Mac! It’s a very known old action racing game. The game has over 800 ratings on GOG.com, so this means that the game is quite popular. Simply get the game from GOG.com and install it into the wrapper  and follow the video instructions. A cool coincidence is that the game is on sale now with 60% off!! So get the game cheap now you can!

It’s 1976… a different ’76. Stretched out before you are thousands of miles of desert – the American Southwest. The massive engine roars as you slam down the throttle. It’s time to get funked up…You are Groove Champion, auto-vigilante. Your agenda: payback for your dead sister. Your weapon: A 425-horsepower ’72 Picard Piranha with two 50-caliber machine guns on the roof and a flamethrower on the side. You’re one mean dude in an even meaner ride.

Gamersgate download file problem solved!

Great news! Problem that there was no way to download the Windows installers on your Mac on your Gamersgate shelf is solved!! After an urgent call to them they replied as follow:

I totally understand why you need this and what you are doing. I have made some changes now so you will also get smaller links to the downloader for the system you are not on. So when you are on a Mac you will also get a link to the Windows downloader and the other way around. Thanks for the notifying us about this!

This means the blue download button is still gone and a text link is there instead (see screenshot). So a big horay for Gamersgate for fixing it! Now we can all download our favorite game download files again!

Download button gone on Gamersgate! (reported!)

Download button gone on Gamersgate! (reported!)

Here a quick some quick news. Gamersgate did today a change on their site which causes you only to see the download buttons of the game of the specific platform (in our case Mac). So this means if you bought or want to buy a Windows game there to install in one of my wrappers, you won’t see the download link of your puchased game on your account-shelf on Gamersgate!!! This means you need to download the downloader file (256kb) from a PC and put it on a usb stick and then put it on your Mac in order to download the game after all. This is unnecessary, so I already reported this to Gamersgate so I hope they have fixed it back again tomorrow or so. So be aware that this issue is there only for Windows download files. Remember that Mac games and Steam games (yes also Windows Steam games which only contains a serial) are NOT effected. So again, I reported this issue to Gamersgate and expect the fix this very soon. Bare with me guys!
