Welcome to Paulthetall.com's porting Website!


Critical note! To make all Wrappers OSX "El Capitan" compatible you need to add the game to the Porting Kit first! Most games are already added to the Porting kit anyways, in that case install the game using the Porting Kit in the Library —> Server Tab. So always check if the specific game is added to the Porting Kit first! The video below shows you the simple process of adding wrappers which are not added to the Porting Kit yet to make them El Capitan Compatible: https://youtu.be/1ZtLWhaaIOs

S.W.I.N.E. for Mac added to Porting Kit

We keep on going adding free games at the moment! On request: S.W.I.N.E. is added to the Porting Kit! Although the game works just great even on my low-end Mac-book air, the in-game video’s/cut-scenes won’t show up in the game. So if you want to see them after all, you can watch this video with all cut-scenes in a row.

S.W.I.N.E is a humorous strategy game with two races fighting against each other. On one hand, we have the national army of pigs who have challenged the grounds for war, and on the other hand we have rabbits, who have been surprisingly over taken by the pigs maliciously. So you can choose one of the two sides and gain access to the campaigns and arms. In the game, you can win wars by recruiting new units.

Chess vs Axis of Evil for Mac

For people who like Chess and some fun, then Chess vs the Axis of Evil might be a good choice. In this game you can play Chess against a friend or again the computer with some nice animation with it. It really reminds you to the similar game port Combat Chess, or the native Mac game Battle Chess Special Edition.

The fully animated chess pieces on the World Police team include six-shooter Dubya, Ninja Condi, Half-man/half-tank Rumsfeld and the quail-hunting VP (watch out!) and the British poodle. The Axis of Evil is headed by terrorist number one (who throws a mean sandal at enemy pieces), and is backed up by Saddam (back from the dead), the chap from North Korea with the funky taste in suits and a man in an eye-patch with a cat on his lap, who is particularly evil.
