Close Combat 3 – The Russian Front for Mac

Great news! Close Combat 3 – The Russian Front for Mac is added to Porting Kit! The game series have been released yesterday, so I pushed other stuff away, and started to port these series. I tested the first three (Normandy, Russian front and Battle of the Bulge), from which I managed to port the last two (the others I still need to look at). So here is the first post for Close Combat 3 – The Russian Front. Both games works great although in 800×600 resolution only and you have to disable in-game videos to prevent trouble. So make sure to de-select that in the game launcher and start the fun!

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup file from Close Combat 3 from GOG into your download folder.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the game in the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!

Game Description:
Command a fire brigade of soldiers on the Russian Front in this real-time strategy game set in World War II featuring unequaled detail, realism and scope. Player as either the Soviets or Germans as you orchestrate your squads’ attack, defense, and survival over four grueling years of the grandest and bloodiest war the world has ever seen. To succeed, you must guide your man through the moral dangers of war while physically an psychologically defeating your enemies. Your soldiers are counting on you.

Dungeons 3 released for Mac

Released for Mac on GOG.com: Dungeon 3! Dungeons 3 is a very enjoyable game and a refreshing take on dungeon management and RTS games. The graphics are beautiful, the voice acting is great and the music is so good. The narrator’s familiar voice and narrating style fits well with the humour and all the references make me smile and shake my head at the same time. It’s an easy to understand game but hard to master. The overworld has all the same controls as an RTS with all the base building happening underground in the twisted DK style.

If you liked the Dungeon Keeper and the Warcraft RTS series… and maybe The Stanley Parable… you’ll love this game!

Some GOG.com game port fixes.

Some GOG.com game port fixes.

Maintaining so many game ports is quite intensive, especially when changes seems to appear regularly in the game installer, or Winetricks, game clients (Uplay/Steam/Origin/GOG Galaxy). The problem is not only fixing them, but also discover them when they are there. That’s why your help is so important, to notify us when things stops functioning in the Porting Kit forum or contact form.

There seems to be a couple of problems active:
Origin:
Asks for internet connection, (while its already there), which has a solution now and is being implanted at the moment, most Origin games will work now, but a final check still needs to be done. (matter of 2 days at the most to fix all Origin games)

GOG Galaxy (Gwent):
Well, we only have 1 GOG Galaxy game (Gwent), but yeah if the game client is messing around, then there is no use for it… We are working on the problem, but solution is not there yet. CHeck blog regularly for updates.

GDIplus issue:
Some GOG.com games had a graphical glitch with the GOG installer. You couldn’t click “install” (Install button gone) so installing the game would not be possible. Most games are now fixed from that bug, but if you see/run into one, let us know asap, so we can fix those specific game(s). Check for fixed games in the ratings tab (latest games) list.

Some game port fixes past days:
Settlers 2 Special Edition
Star Wars Battlefront 2
Heroes 3

Death Gate for Mac

Death Gate for Mac has been released on GOG.com! Long ago after centuries of war, the sartan race smashed the world seal and sundered the earth into separate magical realms, each sealed from the other by the powerful Death Gate.

In isolation, magic was corrupted, knowledge lost and the common humanity that once bound the world was forgotten. The defeated Patryns, trapped in the nightmarish prison realm of the labyrinth, became twisted with hatred and plotted their revenge.
