Two Worlds for Mac!

At the beginning of your epic adventure in Two Worlds, a mercenary mission takes you to the far north - but you’re also following up a mysterious lead at the same time – the first clue you’ve been given since Kyra’s disappearance. You're shocked during a meeting with the delegates of a dark Brotherhood - your sister’s kidnappers are indeed after your family’s relic. Whether there’s any truth in your family being the chosen ones or not, the others obviously believe it - and if you ever want to see Kyra again, you’ll have to act swiftly.  I played the game for about 45 minutes on my Nvidia 640M iMac without problems. For best performance I recommend to put the in-game video settings to medium/low. Enjoy!

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “Two Worlds” 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”!

Steambuilds added to Portingkit!

Because Mixture cloud went off-line (and all my files hosted there which was luckily not much) and because a good free reliable file/cloud hosting service with: larger file size features, with enough bandwidth and durability, is nowhere to found anymore, I added the the Steambuilds to the Portingkit! This way you can still enjoy those Steambuilds on your Mac. So check the Portingkit and find the new Steambuilds on the Library --> Server tab!

Besides those Steambuilds I also added the Submarine simulator Silent Hunter 5 and the remaining two Thief games Thief 2 and Thief 3 into the Portingkit! Enjoy!

Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb for Mac!

As Indiana Jones, you’ll travel to 1935 China to prevent a powerful artifact from falling into evil hands. This globe-spanning adventure pits you against evil Nazis and the Asian underworld. It’ll take more than just a trusty whip and pistol to avoid the perils of the Emperor’s Tomb. At the moment I made only the wrapper available because the Portingkit lacks a specific feature at the moment what is needed for the game. If the feature is implanted next week, then the game will be added to the Portingkit as well. Tested the game both on my Nvidia 640M iMac and my Intel HD 5000 Macbook air and fine.

Simply download the Wrapper --> extract it --> double-click it --> install windows software --> navigate to the Indiana Jones setup file and double-click it. Then run through the install wizard (click install) --> after installation a few error messages will popup but just click "ok" to close them, and click "Exit" (not launch!!). Then set the "indy.exe" as start executable and double-click the wrapper to play the game! Have fun!

Known issues: Intro/credits when starting up seems not to work. The rest works great.

More games added to Portingkit!

UPDATE 25-3-2015: Fixed a bug in the Cossacks - Art of war and Cossacks - Back to War file, those should work fine now.

Here another post with an update of the latest games added to the Portingkit. It seems that GOG.com is re-structuring their game files. There are separating combi games in to multiple downloads. This means that if you purchase Cossacks Anthology, you have now 3 separate downloads instead of one file containing all 3 games in one installation. That's fine of course, but this means the start executable path is changed and also the setup file name. This means for me that I have to adjust those WSI files in the Portingkit. Luckily they are just a few, so I can adjust them quite easily.

I made for Cossacks Anthology, three separate game files because of this: Cossacks Back to War, Art of War and European Wars. So for each game you have to download that specific setup file. It looks like they are forgot or they still have to "part" American Conquest + Fightback because they are still together in one setup file. So for now I added both game in one installer file creating 2 shortcuts to both games. I also made for Tomb Raider IV and Tomb Raider V separate download files.

Then I added Supreme Commander and Supreme Commander - Forged Alliance (On request) which are 2 Steam games . Then 2 other games which are non-steam: Dark Void Zero and SBK 2011.

Then Last but not least 2 free games: Live for Speed and onEscapee! Have fun!
