I received 2 emails about the game Age of Empires 2 HD, where it seems a recent update broke the game in Porting Kit (Thanks for letting me know) the game worked still fine in Crossover. I could reproduce the issue on my machine as well, so I updated the Wrapper and fixed the problem. Now everyone can enjoy this amazing game again! Make sure you trash the old wrapper and re-install the game using the Server tab database after refresh in Porting Kit. Have fun!

Bad news...Digital PC game storefront Games Republic has announced that they will be shutting down. Unfortunately, it seems that Games Republic was not able to draw in the crowd it wished. According to an e-mail we received today from 11 Bit Studios, the decision to shut down Games Republic happened on December 8th:

If you purchased any games from Game Republic and want to hang onto them, now would be the time to make some room and download them. I will replace the GamesRepublic links as well in Porting Kit coming months.
