Wrapper update Civcity Rome and Myst URU Chronicles!

Wrapper update Civcity Rome and Myst URU Chronicles!

We do wrapper updates al the time, but when there are some significant updates we try to post them on the blog as much we can. So here the update for Civcity Rome ! The game needs core fonts, but the Porting Kit somehow failed the fonts trick into the wrapper, which caused you not to see the fonts in-game. With the latest Porting Kit version this is solved! So update Porting Kit (using the top bar menu –> check for updates) to fix the issue.

Myst URU Complete Chronicles had an issue concerning launch probably cause in one of the installer updates of GOG.com. This is fixed to now and doesn’t need an Porting Kit update. Refresh the server tab and make sure the GOG.com setup file is in the download folder and install the game and play

Tighter ties with Gamersgate again.

Gamersgate has been lost out of the picture for some years because the ties were lost for quite a while. But with their new Sales manager they are back and ties are back in good shape. So I will be adding more Gamersgate source games and updating Gamersgate ports in coming time. I already updated 25 ports past weekend and adding a few old ones, which I had not added yet to Porting Kit. I will put on a post + video tonight for the first new Gamersgate port.

Gamersgate is one of the biggest online digital games store on the net and with over 3500 games in the game catalog, it even exceeds the number of GOG.com which is growing more and more as well! So if you search a Windows or Mac game, certainly check out the Gamersgate sales as well for the best price!
