Steam Chat en Store Fix getting implemented on Steam ports!

Great news! As you all may know now Windows XP is not supported anymore by Steam. Because of that the Windows version needed to be set to Windows 7 which came with a bug that the store and chat functionality, didn’t work with the Windows 7 version of Steam. This has luckily been addressed in the latest W10 engines Gcex has created for Porting Kit and Wineskin. I managed to update some popular Steam Wrappers already, but it may take a bit to update all Steam wrappers. I hope to have them all done within about 2 months.

Steam Wrapper updates + Fixes:
– Age of Empires 2 HD
– Age of Empires 3 Complete
– Steambuild 1
– Steambuild 2
Bully (Works now also on Intel HD/Iris)
– Company of Heroes
– Warhammer 40K – Dawn of War
– Warhammer 40K – Dawn of War Master Collection
– Warhammer 40K – Dawn of War Soul Storm
– Alien Breed 3D Trilogy

If you have one of these games already installed and want the steam store and Steam chat fixed, then consider a new install of the port. The fixes will be automatically implemented when you  trash the old port and reinstall. Enjoy! A new list of Steam Wrapper updates will follow weekly.
