Salvage Youth for the Mac!

Another free game for today! This time a game called Salvage Youth! Salvage youth is a puzzle game with the same ingredients as Gobliiins. You control three characters with each it's capabilities and use them to reach your goal. Graphics are great, and may slow down the game if you put everything on high. My advise is to set the graphics on simple and resolution native to your Mac. Then it should run fine for you. I played one level on my Nvidia 640M iMac and it worked great :) Check out the trailer to get to know the game a bit. Have fun!

Salvage Youth is a beautiful 2.5D Platform game from some Students of the DigiPen University. We take over the role of some kids who got special abilities which in sum, help us to master the level. Jenny can interact, Stu can pickup and throw things and Dustin is good in jumping and sprinting. Our goal is to build up the rocket to fly to our parents which left us behind when they flew from Earth.

Les Miserables the game of the book for the Mac!

Les Miserables the game of the book is a special free game and is one of the "Enter the story" games. The meaning of these stories is to make you part of the story instead of watching/reading the book. You may have thought sometimes when you read a book, "I wished I would be there and talk to these people", well, now you can and see it yourself and see the different sides of it and explore. I think the trailer below can tell you the best where this game/book is about, but that it is special....that is something what is sure.

Les Miserables is an adventure game similar to the novel. You play Jean Valjean, a convicted thief locked to 19 years for stealing a piece of bread to feed his starving sister. Your task is to escape the police inspector Javert, and help Cosette and Marius to liberate lives and rescue your soul.

Wine 1.7.21 released!

A new Wine version is out on WineHQ! The wine version will be build in an engine and will be available in "Winery". Winery is a program where you can build wrappers with, and is available on the Wineskin website. I used Winery to build all my Wrappers for this website. The Wine engine itself is not available yet in Winery, so we have to wait (Doh123 of Wineskin will do this as soon as he can) on that and then you can download and test it with your games when interested! There is an unicode update, support for critical sections in runtime and some more important memory issues fixed.  See more details below and on WineHQ.

You can change the wine engine in existing Wrappers doing: Right-click Wrapper --> show package content --> wineskin --. advanced --> tools --> change engine --> change it to the latest engine you downloaded, in this case 1.7.21.

The Wine development release 1.7.21 is now available.

What's new in this release:

  • Support for critical sections in the C runtime.
  • Unicode data updated to Unicode 7.0.
  • Support for interlaced PNG encoding.
  • Initial stub for the Packager library.
  • Various bug fixes.

It is a full-length game with an atmosphere of magic and intrigue.

Within the castle walls, nobles vie for the old King's favor, and not everybody is happy with the sole heir to the throne, princess Rhiannon. Meanwhile, danger approaches, in the form of an invading army, a hostile giant, and a mercenary troop who are ancient enemies of the Theylann king. And there is mystery yet. For hidden within the borders of Theylinn lies a second kingdom, named Thierna na Oge, where the faeries reign. Little is known about this shrouded, exotic realm.

Amiga Wrapper update!

Amiga isn't dead as many people think. At least not in the Amiga fan's hearts, and not on the Mac! Because we still have the Amiga Wrapper!! This Project took me a couple of weeks to accomplish and for me very important as I grew up with it. It's always nice to hear from people that they were looking for this application everywhere and finally stumbled on it on my site. Check out the project page to see the demonstration video for good old times. This Wrapper is one of the 3 Premium games on my website and can be obtained when becoming a Silver Premium Member and a proof of purchase of Amiga Forever (Because of the licensed ROMS). The valued Edition is already sufficient. Enjoy this amazing Wrapper!

Changes:
- Tested and works even on OSX 10.10 Yosimite!

Paulthetall.com gets it’s own App!!

I have amazing news for you guys and girls. Paulthetall.com will get his own app! I  was thinking of an app for a long while already, especially file-hosting was a pain in the ass, Opendrive and Filefactory have slow downloads and or advertisement screens in it. Mediafire was the only file host reliable and trustworthy through these years but was limited in download size which caused problems with bigger files. Also some bugs  with a couple of wrappers which may have caused by my profile when creating the wrapper (especially the oldest wrappers), are over!

This app, this amazing app, will be a mix of Steam, Crossover and PlayonMac! You open the app, go to your library and can choose for the local Wrappers installed on your Mac or check the Wrappers available on the server. Search your desired game, and click download and it will automatically download the engine, apply the tweaks/tricks needed for the game and when it involves a downloadable file, it will automatically download and install the game in the app including the paulthetall.com branded game specific icon!!  Yes, so easy! You don't even have to set the start executable! It will be all done by the application. This application will make all game pages absolute because all details/description will be visible when selecting the specific game. You even can rank the game on video-card! So give your rank 1-5 stars how the port works on your video-card. This will give insight how the wrapper will work on your video-card. There is even nothing else needed anymore because you can simply download and launch the game from-out the app! There will be a community tab with chat and a kinda forum. There will be a Help tab, to contact us and for guides and tutorials. It's a dream app and no log in account is necessary!

"Paul, development is probably just started and will probably take another year to publish..." Well, the app is already fully function, technically the application is almost ready, we are working on the layout/GUI and when this all is ready I will add the WSI files (those are the scripts which do all the work) to the server so everyone can download them within the app. So the official release of it will be only a few months away! The name of the App and more details will follow coming weeks!
