Besides that some other games needing and update to work proper again.

Stay tuned!

Some port updates and news and coming soon games!

Here some news from our side. It’s bin for all of us a busy period, and Apple doesn’t makes it easy on us to come along with all of their changes, which causes issues we needed to resolve. So here a couple of things going on.

We managed to do some wrapper updates yesterday:
Age of Empires 3 (fixed an expansian of The Asian Dynasties).
Gothic 2 (fixed the setup recognition in the download folder)

New games coming to Porting Kit very soon:
– About 4 more strategic command games

– Europa Universalis 2

Game port removed:
– Production line (64bit only now, not supported/ported yet, hope in not to long to re-add the game)

If you run into issues with a specific installation, or if the setup file names seems to be changed, please let us know in the contact form. We will try to adjust/fix this as soon as possible. We rely on you guys because we cannot test all 1000+ games regularly, so we need to know it from you guys if you run into it. Thanks in advance!

Important Porting Kit update!

Important Porting Kit update!

It seemed that one of the latest PK versions breaks the Winetricks installations. This causes for lots of ports which needs the Winetricks, to not function properly. So this also means for Origin! Besides that, Porting Kit had all kind of weird issues in Mojave because of simply that Mac OS is full of bugs :P. Luckily Gcex which is still maintaining the Wineskin source,  adjust Wineskin to handle these bugs of slowness to launch, lots of processor usage, and more. That’s why for Mojave users, we forced the Unofficial Wineskin version by default. This will fix a lot of issues Mojave users have lately. There are some more updates as mentioned below:

  • Fixed: VMWare virtual machines with invalid video memory shouldn’t prompt has invalid
  • Fixed: If the user try to create a custom port with no engine selected, PK shouldn’t crash
  • Changed: If the video card memory size can’t be detected, but the video card has no kext, it should not be reported to GA
  • Improved: If you are using macOS Mojave, the unofficial wrapper should be mandatory
  • Fixed: Winetricks should work in the unofficial Wineskin

So, everyone please, make sure to update to the latest version of PK by checking for updates, using the Porting Kit top bar menu –> and then check for updates. Enjoy!

Diablo GOG.com source added to Porting Kit + Video Tutorial!

As you may have noticed past week, is that Diablo has been re-released on GOG.com in cooperation with Blizzard! So this means you can play the GOG.com version :) So I added the the GOG.com source version of the port in Porting Kit as quick as I could. Now it’s added I also make a video Tutorial of it. The game menu is with GOG.com version still glitchy, but as long the game itself works, then no worries right? :) Enjoy this one!
