Because I had to run through all the wrappers again to re-upload them, I came across by a few posts I did which weren’t on the site anymore because of the Website migration. So here a re-post of the free game Battleships Forever! Installation is simple, download the dmg file (yeah the old format) and open it –> move the wrapper to the desktop and double-click the wrapper to play! That’s it! have fun, its free!
Battleships Forever is a freeware tactical Real Time Strategy game that put’s you in command of a small fleet of warships in space. Combat and damage mechanics are extremely detailed. Everything is simulated in game if possible. There are no abitrary “to hit chance” values in Battleships Forever. The game also features many innovative mechanics that you’ve never seen before. For example, the Cronus Battleship sports a Flux Shield generator that allows you to draw a defensive force shield around your ships in any shape you want. Position is paramount! Players will command picked fleets made up of Battleships, Destroyers and Patrol Craft. The completed game will include ten campaign missions and multiple skirmish modes.

As I mentioned earlier there is and almost “was” an issue with Open-Drive hosting. All wrapper download files seems to be gone up there….this means about 200 downloads weren’t working anymore. Status is that I re-uploaded and link 80% of the files again. It was a hell of a job and tomorrow I will run through the last ones. The problem was that Opendrive got a copyright claim of Theesa about 2 wrappers of mine, which was of course a false claim, because the Wrapper only contains the Wine Wrapper and not the game itself. But instead of notifying me about it, so I could explain their stupid ungrounded claim, they already closed my account including all my wrappers host there!!!
So I went in contact with Theesa, and explained the situation, but don’t respond at all. They don’t seem to care if they do false claims. They didn’t even checked the wrapper, but just made a claim because of the name. It is so lame… And Opendrive? I am so pissed on them and won’t recommend them for your file-hosting in any way because of their policy! Anyway I re-uploaded most of the files now somewhere else and do the last hand of it tomorrow. Luckily this kind of issues won’t be there when the paulthetall.com app got released very soon….
Here another great RPG port of Aarklash: Legacy for Mac! Aarklash: Legacy is a tactical adventure game. The player will find himself at the heart of the intrigue, controlling a group of 4 characters and leading them into battle across the lands of Alahan, Acheron, and the Behemoth. Final victory for the mercenaries is gained by the use of a wide range of powers which are enhanced through looting items and managed via skills trees which can be reset at will. Interaction between the heroes is also important and real bonds will be created between them as the game progress. Both fun and action await you in Aarklash: Legacy! The game is tested on my Nvidia 640m iMac where it runs very good. Below the written instructions to make it work on your Mac. Video instructions including some game-play will follow in the bottom below as well. Have fun!
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 Aarklash Legacy on GOG.com –> 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! One note: somehow I can’t play the game in native resolution without seeing the top bar, so set a resolution lower and it will be full screen. Setting both settings might freeze the game once, but after restart all settings are good and you can play the game perfectly!

After more then 2 years no AMD Radeon iMacs in the iMac line, finally, yes finally the GFX card is back in business with the new Retina 5k 27″ iMac!! I was so sad when every gfx card was almost replaced by an Intel Graphics gfx replacement. And now when I just sold my AMD Radeon 6770M to buy an Intel Iris iMac so I can test games on that machine as well, this pleasant surprise arises! AMD Radeon is the best video-card at the moment for gaming experience since OSX 10.8.2, and now it’s back! Good chance this video-card will be put into the coming Retina 21″ iMac as well. That would be great news, because then the the AMD Radeon graphics card is wider spread in the iMac model line.
For the one who own the new iMac I can imagine it has some “child diseases” in the start, but within a few updates this might be the ruling GFX card on the Mac! Let me know your experiences on this blog post with this GFX card.
Some good news! CodeWeavers, with support from Wargaming, have developed a software solution that allows Mac OS X users to join the army of World of Tanks fans. I tested the Wrapper and played 4 battles and had results with up to 40-50 fps EXTRA performance (so around 80-100 FPS in total) on minimum graphical settings on my Nvidia 640M. So I updated the game page with the Crossover Wrapper version. My wrapper will still be available for the ones who experience troubles with the Crossover version.
In order to use the Codeweaver Wrapper this you need to:
- Download Codeweavers Mac Wrapper.
- Launch the downloaded file.
- Move World of Tanks icons to the ‘Applications’ folder
- After installation please start launcher to download and install World of Tanks client.

To make the total series of Civilization for Mac complete: here Civilization 2 for Mac!! As you know Civilization and Civilization 3, Civilization IV and Civilization V were already available for Mac, but today I make the Wrapper for Civilization II available. Sid Meier’s Civilization II is a turn-based strategy video game developed and published by MicroProse. Civilization II is similar to the first Civilization, with some changes to the various units, civilizations, world wonders, tile “specials” and technologies. The graphics were changed from a top-down view to an isometric representation. Rivers no longer occupy the whole of each tile along their length; instead, they are part of each topography square through which they flow, adding productive value, defensive bonuses and movement ability. The AI was improved as well, including the elimination of most random events by now making the computer player go through the same production requirements as the human player. Enjoy this amazing game on your Mac!
Installation is quite simple. Download the Wrapper below and Civilization 2 from GamesWin and extract the files, which leaves a Civ2 folder and the Wrapper. Then rightclick the Wrapper –> show package content –> c_drive –> program files –> and drop the civ2 folder in there –> Then close the window and doubleclick the wrapper to play! Enjoy!

Here Team 17’s Alien Breed 2 and Alien Breed 3 for the Mac! From the Creators of the Worms Series like Worms Mayhem and Worms Clan Wars, Team 17 created a whole different genre action game called Alien Breed. There is a trilogy of this game and Alien Breed: Impact I ported a few days ago and now the 2 successors are done. The game is tested on my Nvidia 640m iMac where it runs very good, and on a Intel HD 4000 Macbook Air, where it works quite well as well, although the fans of my Macbook air had quite a job to cool the Macbook :P. Have fun!
Before downloading the wrapper, make sure security settings are set correctly when you have Mavericks OSX or higher. Then simply download the Steambuild1b Wrapper below and extract the file and launch the Steam Wrapper –> login into Steam –> activate the serial you got from Gamersgate and download the game –> Installing of the .net frameworks 3.0 can take easily about 5 minutes so be patient, then click play!
Take control of the hero, Conrad, the ship’s Chief Engineer, and continue your fight for survival across the fatally damaged space vessel, against a ruthless assault by an alien horde. Your only hope relies on reigniting the alien space craft’s monstrous engines to rescue you from impending annihilation. Deep inside the bowels of the unfamiliar craft, and with time rapidly running out, ready your weapons and begin to claw your way through the darkness in a fight for survival. But you are not alone. The ship is home to the carnivorous alien horde and something else
