Thief 2: Metal Age for the Mac!

As promised as well: another game port. This time a very nice golden oldie: Thief 2: Metal age! It works great in Crossover! I created a CrossTie for you guys for the easy installation of the game which you can find on the gamepage. Check out the trailer below for the gameplay of this great game.

Thief™ II: The Metal Age gives you a chance to revisit the dark streets of the City, now changed by the Order of Mechanists, a new cult which has embraced many of the followers of the fallen religion of the Hammerites. In a world of steam robots and cameras Garrett will have to face a new opponent - Sheriff Gorman Truart, a lawman determined to rid the City of all criminals, starting with master-thief Garrett. Equipped with a new set of tools, including flash mines and scouting orbs, Garrett has to keep himself alive and unveil the secret behind Truart's actions. Starts out looking as a simple case of corruption will eventually become much more, and Garrett again finds himself a reluctant savior--but that doesn’t mean he’s not going to rob the City blind while he saves it!

New Years Resolutions…

New Years Resolutions...

As in every year a post about my New Years Resolutions. It has been a turbulent year with it ups and downs. A way cool development was especially the new website! With great looking game pages and cool options, and a new look which took me about 8 months to create including migrating all the many game pages to the new site. With that, a new Paulthetall.com branded icon serie arrived special crafted by Stuart Ludwig.  We also had some set backs with spammers on the forums and things not completely working properly but which we will fix the coming year. With that Steam was messing up wine with their client updates. Because of that and after some looking to the future, I changed vision to go back to the roots: Crossover! Which is robust, stable, its own wine developer team, amazing concept and graphic interface and above all CrossTies! This will be also the focus on next year.

Next year plans are to transform all game pages to Crossover game pages with its CrossTies and where available an alternative Wineskin wrapper i created in the past. I already created at the moment 100 Crossties in 2 weeks, which is about a sixth of all game ports I created. So I expect to finish up the first quarter of coming year. With that many new games will be introduced/ported as well of course with new website features and new developments. I am now closely involved with Crossover and all they do with there game focus on the Macdriver and the Performance Enhanced Graphics option where is worked on daily.  And I can say to you all, it will be all in all, a really promising year for us all!

Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year to you guys and girls! That we may enter a new wonderful year and the best wishes for the new year 2014 to you all!

Oh no! More CrossTies!

This weekend I created and tested about 16 more CrossTies which now needs to be approved by the Crossover "Ninja's". I expect that  they will be approved today so I can put them up on the website here tomorrow. I have here a couple of CrossTies I did last week and which got approved last Friday. There are 2 nice automatic download and install CrossTies (Demos which can be unlocked to full version using a legal serial) included which will make it a walk through the park to play it in Crossover. When I count the 16 of tomorrow and the ones I have already done together, then I have done a 100 CrossTies! So thats about a sixth of all game ports on my website! And this in nearly 2 weeks time. So if I advance this trend I hope to have the whole database trasnformed in 2 months :) Of course new games will be added as well and the first new one will follow tomorrow.

So check the Crossties out below and play these amazing games on your Mac! You need Crossover pre-installed in order for the CrossTie to work. Check out this video or on the game pages how simple CrossTies work! Enjoy!

Gabriel Knight 2 for the Mac!

As already mentioned earlier, I will do some more GOG.com DOS games which aren't for the Mac yet as well. Here Gabriel Knights 2 - The Beast Within, which I couldn't port to Wineskin and couldn't run in Boxer, but ran fine out of the box in Crossover... Crossover really has some nice features. I will come up with some nice video tutorials about Crossover very soon. Enjoy the game!

The Beast Within is the second installment of the trilogy presenting the dark adventures of Gabriel “Schattenjäger” Knight. This time the protagonist is on the trail of a strange wolf, murderer of a little girl. Gabriel was asked to take care of this evil and suspects that this case is paranormal in nature. Together with his assistant, Grace Nakimura, he discovers the dark truth behind the history of Bavaria.
