Porting Kit 2.6 released!

Hey, hey, hey! Here is VitorMM! I’m here to talk with you about the new Porting Kit version: Porting Kit 2.6!! That may seem too soon since the last version was PK 2.5.61, however that’s a very special release. There were some small changes since 2.5.45, but PK 2.6 brings many changes!

1- As one of the most important changes, PK now has a requirements list, which check if your PK version is updated enough to use a certain feature. In that way, we are going to avoid problems with outdated PK versions, and created ports will always have the minimum needed to work.

2- Another improvement is that the DRM scripts now come from our server instead of being hardcoded in PK. In that way, we are capable of updating them in real time, and keeping ports that depend of DRMs always working. That should give an end to PK updates focused in making Origin or Uplay ports work again.

3- Also, PK 2.6 and its next versions have the intention of replacing Porting Center, so the Porting Kit now can also be used by WSI Developers to upload ports, now in the new extension, the WSI2. Eventually, Porting Center will be dropped, and the Porting Kit will be our only application. Only PK 2.6+ is capable of downloading and installing WSI2 files, but they will give us much more possibilities to improve PK ports.

4- And at last, PK 2.5.61 and PK 2.6 are the first PK versions to use our fourth server API, giving us more possibilities when showing the server list, so as soon as we can release Porting Kit Legacy 2.6, the oldest server API still active (our second) will be dropped, so every Porting Kit version before 2.4.205 will stop working. That also applies to our third server API, but that one should be kept for a longer time, giving everybody time to update.

Great news! Blade Runner (DVD version) is added to Porting Kit! The DVD version works out of the box, and works great! Played for a while and tested also saving and loading games.

If you love detective games like Blade runner, then you may also like: Tex Murphy – Under a Killing Moon or Tex Murphy Mean Streets + Martian Memorandum (both native Mac). Have fun with this one!!

This is an incredible game that submerses you into the storyline like no other. It is based on the 1980 movie and has a lot of the characters from it but follows an original storyline. The controls are intuitive and are very easy to learn. The story has several endings depending on the decisions that you make.

Donkey Kong Remake for Mac

Everyone knows the Classic Donkey Kong games from the (S)NES. Now it I added the remake Donkey Kong in Porting Kit. Enjoy this free remake!

Game Description:
Donkey Kong Remake preserves untouched all the playability of the original Nintendo game, but it powers up the graphic side considerably. The new ‘sprites’ are really well designed, specially the one of Peach princess, inspired by the design of Paper Mario. If we put appart the graphics, we find that Donkey Kong Remake is the same game we used to play two decades ago. Very addictive. Four different levels, each one representing 25 meters, and your goal is to reach the top, defeat Donkey Kong and rescue the girl.

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit if you don’t have it yet.
2. The in Porting Kit search the game on the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!
