GOG install instructions:
Make sure before clicking "INSTALL NOW" that you have downloaded the setup files from your GOG library after purchase, into your download folder, so Porting Kit can start the installation automatically. You will be prompted to install the game like if you were in Windows.
This WSI file will create a Wrapper and install Firestarter into that Wrapper. The GOG.com version is tested and DRM free. So this version is advised to use (not the Steam version). When you don’t own the Windows game yet, then the WSI file will supply you the link to the game page where you can purchase this Windows game. Click “Install” to create the game Wrapper. For questions and help check the Help/FAQ tab in the Porting Kit.
In the year 2010, a malicious virus has infected a virtual reality machine, the Firestarter. The intruding program has caused the computer to malfunction. The rules of the simulation have been altered in a potentially deadly manner, with the player's consciousness trapped inside. There is only one possible way to escape, by completing the game with a period of 48 virtual hours. The penalty for failing to do so is the ultimate one – real death.
- The free Porting Kit app
- A two Button USB mouse with scroll-wheel (recommended)
- The GOG.com version of Firestarter
With the recent installers of GOG.com, the installation will end in a few errors. If they occur, then just click them away. It won’t effect the game in any way.
