Lost Horizon for Mac

Lost Horizon for Mac

For Lost Horizon was already a old Wrapper available, but now it is added is added to Porting Kit/Crossover! Game works great as well on my low-end Macbook air as on my Intel Iris Mac. Simply install the Windows Steam Client using the install button in Porting Kit/Crossover and after install login into Steam and add the serial (when not owned already), and install the game and play!

1936: Soldiers of the Third Reich roam the world seeking occult weapons for their insane plans of conquest. When Fenton Paddock, a former British soldier and hapless smuggler, is asked to look for his friend Richard, who went missing in Tibet, he has no idea that this search will lead him across three continents to a secret that could turn the whole world upside down. Enough mystery? Not in the mood for another crime story? "Lost Horizon" brings the classic adventure back to its roots: the 1930s, exotic settings all over the world, and the dangerous quest for one of the greatest secrets of mankind makes adventurers' hearts beat faster.

Pacific Assault version added to Porting Kit/Crossover!

Great news! Medal of Honor - Pacific Assault arrived DRM free on! Because of this I added the version to Porting Kit and Crossover! The version is advised over the Origin version because Origin is a game client where you first need to login to in order to play. So version is always recommended above game client version as Uplay/Origin and Steam.

Medal of Honor - Pacific Assault puts you in the boots of a WWII soldier in the Pacific Theater of Operations. As Marine Private Tommy Conlin, you must survive the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor and then join the Allied crusade to defeat Imperial Japan's bloody conquest of the Pacific. From the attack at Pearl Harbor to the pivotal battle against Japanese Forces at Tarawa Island, Medal of Honor Pacific Assault gives PC gamers a sense of the courage it took to endure and overcome the Japanese threat in WWII and fight for VICTORY in the Pacific.

Audiosurf for Mac

Great news! With some help of Brainzyy of the Porting Kit forums, we managed to add Audiosurf for Mac to Porting Kit and Crossover (was already added in there). This very popular game works great! Happy gaming!

Ride your music. Audiosurf is a music-adapting puzzle racer where you use your own music to create your own experience. The shape, the speed, and the mood of each ride is determined by the song you choose. You earn points for clustering together blocks of the same color on the highway, and compete with others on the internet for the high score on your favorite songs.

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

Crossover 15.3.0 released!

Here a quick post for Crossover version 15.3.0. As you may have read this awesome piece of commercial software, which should definitely run next to your  Porting Kit, had a small update. It will be probably the last update before they release version Crossover 16.0 in Autumn this year.

Crossover is partly responsible for the Porting Kit today, because of there efforts in the Wine project. Porting Kit uses the Wine project for the wrappers it creates. So we have a warm relationship with Codeweavers (the company behind Crossover) and try to make a "Cross-tie" ("one click" installation file) for every port which is available in Porting Kit. If a game in Porting Kit somehow doesn't work properly, install in it Crossover instead. Good change it will work there or even better, because of the better graphical support which Crossover brings.

Not familiar with Crossover? Then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial. Really recommended!

Change Log:
15.3.0 CrossOver - September 20, 2016

  • Bug Fixes:
    • Steam crashes when loading certain fonts have been fixed.
    • Fixed some crashes in GOG Galaxy.
    • Fixed a crash in the Microsoft Office 2007 diagnostic tools.

Gabriel Knight – Sins of Our Fathers for Mac

For tonight another great classic adventure game: Gabriel Knight - Sins of our Fathers! Gabriel Knight - Sins of Our Fathers for Mac works great out of the box and works great for as well in porting kit as in Crossover (a indispensable application to run aside Porting Kit!). Enjoy this awesome classic GEM!

The adventure of Gabriel Knight - Sins of our Fathers starts with gathering materials for his new book, and ends up becoming a fight for his very soul. During his investigation he discovers that he is the heir to the title of “Schattenjäger”, or “Shadow Hunter”, which has been passed down in his family from generation to generation since times long forgotten. He must now face countless dangers in New Orleans, Africa and Germany, each bringing him ever closer to unraveling the mystery behind suspicious voodoo murders. Haunted by nightmares, he won't give up until he reveals the truth.

In this "full-talkie" version of one of the best horror adventure games ever created you can listen to over 7,300 lines of recorded dialogue performed by professional actors including Mark Hamill and Tim Curry. Allow yourself to be sucked into this amazing neo-Gothic story full of dark secrets, nightmares and tons of atmosphere!

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

CrossOver's Graphical User Interface has been entirely redone. Windows applications can now be easily launched from within CrossOver itself, and much of the rest of the user interface has been simplified.The CrossOver Software Installer more prominently displays all search results when a user searches for an application to install, making it easier to find the desired application.

Application Support:

Some new Crosstie updates!

It's bin a while that created some Crossties as well. Crossties are little install scripts for Crossover which will automaticly install the game in the Crossover application. These CrossTies are an alternative for the Wrappers. My goal is in the end to have both a Crosstie as a wrapper available to play your Windows game with. For tonight I created some crossties of the latest games I ported. So if you haven’t  Crossover yet, then you can sign up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial. The software is normally $39,99 and then you will get 6 months free updates. the more standard version is $59,99 with a year of free updates. (so the $20 extra is for the 6 months extra updates). However: when you use the promo code “paulthetall” you get 25% off!! So make use of this discount :) Enjoy!

Check out the new Crossties on the blogposts:
- Heroes Chronicles - All Chapters
