Space Quest 1 + 2 + 3 for Mac

Great news, as you may know I already ported Space Quest 4 + 5 + 6, but I am happy to announce the first 3 games as well! Thats’s right: Space Quest 1 + 2 + 3 is added to Porting Kit as on Crossover and works great (all 3 DOS games) as almost all DOS games do in Portingkit and Crossover.  Ow and Linux users can play those games as well using Crossover! Happy gaming with these old GEMS!

A long time ago in a galaxy just around the corner you are the janitor in space. Your mission is to scrub dirty floors, to replace burned-out light bulbs, to clean out latrines… To boldly go where no man has swept the floor. See what happens yourself as Roger Wilco, intergalactic garbage-man, comes to the rescue. Packed with comedy, tragedy, suspense, horror and many other nouns. The Package ncludes Space Quest: The Sarien Encounter, Space Quest II: Vohaul’s Revenge and Space Quest III: The Pirates of Pestulon

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.

Anno 1701 for Mac

Great news and some less good news. Anno 1701 has been ported to Mac! The less good news is, it only works in Crossover for now… Reason is the Hardware check/diagnose, which get passed without issues on Crossover, but causes a black screen freeze in Porting Kit using Wineskin. Vitor is looking for a way to bypass this “check” because this is the only show stopper. Meanwhile the game will be only playable using Crossover at the moment. Maybe a good reason to get Crossover next to Porting Kit.

Anno 1701 is the most elaborate and expensive game production in the German speaking region and the sequel to the most successful, multi-million selling game series of all times. The third part of the unique combination of different genres creates a real-time building game and is also set in 16th and 17th century, the era of discoveries and maritime trade.

Tip: Anno 1701 is now 75% off ($2,89) on GOG.com because of the Back to School sale!!

Porting Kit Legacy 2.4.31 released

You must be wondering why is the Porting Kit Legacy 2.4.31 release being focused instead of the regular version. Well, that’s because that version has lots of bug fixes for the Legacy version :)

Remember the crash when you closed Porting Kit Legacy? It’s over. Snow Leopard user, remember how the sizing slider of the grid view looked terrible for you? No more. Also, RAR files and the FnToggle feature now are Legacy compatible.

That, and many other things, were fixed in that release. There are still somethings that need to be fixed in the Legacy version, however that should cover most of them for a while ;)

And in case you use macOS 10.6 or 10.7, get the Legacy version instead, right here…

Fallout 3 for Mac

Fallout 3 GOTY is added to Porting Kit! Thanks to Vitor who found a way to fix a known issue for Intel Cards in the wrapper, we all can play this great game now.

Porting Kit 2.4.0 release

That’s it. Porting Kit 2.4.0 was released today. There were many updates since PK 2.2.76, and as usual I will five you a brief resume of it, to show the importance of keeping PK updated and that we are always improving :)

That also leads to the fact that our forum is going to have a major change, which should be concluded still in September and will improve the Forum experience. We hope you will enjoy it.

  • PK created wrappers shall not have problems with Wine unaccepted characters in the wrapper name
  • Wine System Tray dialog removed, since that can be done throw the Properties window
  • El Capitan update system for old wrappers improved
  • Now PK Custom Ports can be created using any engine from Wineskin’s Engine folder, and can be created offline
  • Added “Show in Finder” right click option
  • Added option to increase font size of WebViews
  • French translation by Samuel Gauthier
  • corefonts winetrick now is silent too
  • Apps Folders now are saved after each action
  • Wrapper creation speed increased a bit
  • All Direct3D overrides are working again (makes Fallout 3 work)
  • Added Requirements List to the wrapper creation process
  • Local apps now can be reordered if the user wants (list view only)
  • Local apps can be ordered by name or by size with a right click (list view only)
  • If the main EXE of a port is missing, PK will warn the user instead of opening Wineskin

Many bug fixes were also done. Most of these changes are already available in the latest Porting Kit Legacy version too.
