Star Wars Rebellion for Mac!

On request, the return of the game Star Wars Rebellion on Paulthetall.com. The game was removed because of a bug that you cannot do the manual galactic battles (it will crash if you do so), so automatic battles will only work. Despite of this bug a lot of people still want to play this old diamond. So because of this bug I cannot add it into the Portingkit, but have made an exception Wrapper for this one. This way people who want to play the game and don’t care about the manual galactic battles can still enjoy this game. Below the video with some game-play in the Portingkit before it was removed :P.

Before downloading the wrapper, make sure security settings are set correctly when you have Mavericks OSX or higher. Then simply download the Wrapper below and extract the file and double-click the wrapper–> get and download Star Wars Rebellion on GOG –> install windows software –> navigate to the GOG.com installer file and double-click it –> Installing the game into the Wrapper and at the end of installation click “exit”. Now double-click the wrapper and play!  For more info about porting go up here…

Important: Game contains bug that you cannot do the manual galactic battles (it will crash if you do so) so thats why this game is Wrapper only and not added to Portingkit. This Wrapper is available only because on request.

Grim Fandango Remastered released for Mac!

Its there! Grim Fandango is by far the single most wishlisted game by the GOG.com community with an overwhelming 45,000 votes. It’s a unique blend of Mexican folklore with film noir stylings, and has been critically praised for its art direction, writing, and memorable characters. The game will be released on 27 January and the ones pre-ordering get a small token of appreciation which you can see in the video below.

One of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time is now back, better than ever. Grim Fandango’s epic story of four years in the life (or death) of Manny Calavera, travel agent to the dead, has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better than when it won GameSpot’s Game of the Year award upon it’s original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.

Grim Fandango Remastered includes:

  • Repainted, hi-res character textures
  • New, dynamic lighting
  • Classic score re-recorded with a full live orchestra
  • Over 2 hours of exclusive developer commentary
  • Concept art browser

Disciples 3 Renaissance for the Mac!

Disciples III: Renaissance is the next title in the award winning Disciples series and represents a leap forward in the evolution of the turn-based RPG/strategy genre. Building on the successes of the first two games, DIII introduces a host of new features as well as the compelling gameplay that made the previous titles such hits. As a Lord of one of the fantastical races of Nevendaar you must fight to restore your deity’s rule over your world.

The game is available on Gamersgate and works very well on my Nvidia iMac. I played the game for about an hour without any issues. The game Works also on Intel HD, but you have to set the graphical settings on “medium” or there will be graphical glitches in the game and or map. Check out the video below for the visual instructions and some game-play.

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “Disciples 3 Renaissance” game and click download. If you don’t own the game yet the Portingkit can direct you to the game page where to purchase it and download the setup/download file into your download folder. When you clicked “no” and were directed to the game page, you have to click “download” again and then click “yes” so the Portingkit will install the game for you. After installation the Portingkit will say the installation was done successfully. Then go to your “local” tab where you can select the game and click “play”!

Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds Saga Wrapper update + Video!

As you may know Star Wars™ Galactic Battlegrounds Saga has been added to the Portingkit. It still had a music issue (no music at startup) and had not the DLC campaigns added with the executable set. It appeared that the executable needed to be set to “battlegrounds_x1.exe” to fix all this. I tested as well a level in DLC campaign as the normal campaign and even played a multiplayer game using Hamachi.

I made an updated video of the gameport to show how you can play it using the Portingkit including some gameplay. Works great! Enjoy this amazing LucasArt classic!
