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!

On request! Today Nira Oni is ported as well. Simply download and extract (use KEKA) and play! I have to warn you guys that the game isn’t easy, so save regularly or you need to start over since the last save ;)

Nira Oni is an English fan game made during Summer 2012. The game features the original four characters from Ao Oni, along with two new girls. Like the original, Nira Oni features random chases, puzzles, exploration through the floors of an abandoned hospital, a branching storyline and multiple endings. Nira Oni is a difficult game, and expected to take two to three hours of gameplay to beat.

Wineskin Tutorial: How to fix Steam login problems in a Steam Wrapper!

Wineskin Tutorial: How to fix Steam login problems in a Steam Wrapper!

In my game port collection there are quite a number of Steam game wrappers which contains the Windows Steam client. I made this video tutorial to show people who encounter Steam login issues, how to fix that. Those Steam client login issues accure most of the time in older wrappers with outdated steam clients pre-installed. In those cases you might run into connection problems error messages from Steam. You may wonder why because you are conencted to the internet. Well, the problem in that case is the pre-installed steam client software. To fix that you need to delete the steam folder in the wrapper and re-install steam into the wrapper. I made a video tutorial about that so you can fix that yourself. It would be nice that if you run into a wrapper with that problem, to inform me about that, so I can make a wrapper update for that Steam wrapper.

I added the video-link to the Wineskin Video Tutorial page as well!
