The Wrapper section has now been opened to everyone (because of the linksave protection), and the 3+ Post count is gone.

But as we went through the Wrapper links, we noticed that quite a lot of Links are down and these Ports are effectively dead until someone reuploads them or updates the Wrappers and posts them again.
All dead Wrapper Ports have been moved to the Port Graveyard section, and those are quite a few.
Most are from Crowie, jimjimjimbob and paultheall.
jimjimjimbob is sadly not around anymore.

To Porters:
Please reupload the Wrappers again, or update them eventually (CX -> CXZ or Wineskin) then post them again.
Don't use Rapidshare or Sendspace, because those two Hosters give users the most Trouble.
The best alternative would be MediaFire or Megaupload, because these two Hosters keep the files long enough around and aren't so delete-happy with their files.
Speaking of delete-happy, If you upload a file that has for example a name of 'Mass Effect.zip' or 'Modern Warfare 2.dmg', this file will go down faster then you can count to ten.
This is because most File Hosters periodically spider through their database and delete everything that sounds copyrighted. Better to rename it to 'MEffect.zip' and 'MWar2.dmg', these files will stay online a whole lot longer. Guaranteed.

To Users:
It's a shame to see so many good Ports in the Port Graveyards, but it's no use begging in the Topics to reupload them again.
The Porters won't see it.
Instead, please send the original Porter (Topic starter) a Private Message (PM) that their Link is down and needs to be reuploaded.
Sending a PM is the most effective way the file gets reuploaded, period.


Moving on, i've updated the Post Template for the Game sections.
Instead of a mess where everybody posts their Gameports in said sections, lets try to have a little order with this template and make Game Posts look good.

This is the new Game Template:

And this is how a Game Post will look with this template:


If there are any suggestions for improving the Template please post in that topic.

Hello. Sadly, I am not active here on the Porting Team anymore, and therefore I cannot give support or answer questions to any of my posted Ports or posted topics.

i know devil, and it's one of my project to reupload. But some games can be anymore port on a new cxz or wineskin (or without troubles). it's strange but it's so. and reupload an old wrapper not compatible with 10.5 er 10.6 or with the graphic card is not really interressant. I wait the new version of wineskin to reworks on new wrappers and reupload with a most compatible!
if i've have a great ask for some games i can reupload the old wrapper naturely!

and please support the team or the wineskin project with a donation

i'm really confuse. I've don't see that the same day i upgrade my old wrapper a new wineskin engine (RC7) is out.
my wrapper RC6 works fine but if you want up to date you can install the last RC7
place my wrapper in your name/wineskin/
open the wineskin.app and change the engine

the RCs are going fast... and RC7 is supposedly the last before the full release of 1.2... I basically just make an engine of every version of Wine that is released... Wine 1.2 RC7 came out so I built it and stuck it up.

I don't really like having all the RCs out there as engines cuz they are 99.9% the same thing, but people asked for every version.  Wine 1.2 should be out soon... in the next couple of weeks.

It will always be a moving target though.. and there will always be new versions and new engines.... you cant always wait  :-)  After 1.2 is out..t here may be a bug fix and get a 1.2.1 ... but after that they will start with a new Devel with Wine 1.3.0 .. and it'll go up from there... 1.3.1  ... 1.3.2  1.3.3....  etc... and hopefully get better and better.

There is no reason to move to a new version of Wine if the one your using works good for you.  Just like my NWN2 port, the 1.2 RCs had issues, and I have it running on a much older version and its nice and stable.

I realyl suggest to you though to not release Normal Wrappers to people... you really should make all WineskinSC wrappers.  That way once its working it always works.. no need to find an old engine... no need to worry about if Wineskin gets updated.. or a WS4 comes out or anything... WineskinSC sets it in stone to always work the way you had it when you made it.
