Wineskin Winery 1.5 + Wineskin 2.5.5 Released!

Apr 22 2012 10:06 PM | doh123 in News

Wineskin Winery 1.5 update & Wineskin 2.5.5 is out!  There should be noticeable performance improvements in many games!
Minor changes really except whats noted below.
Also as a warning,  Wineskin 2.5.5 will be 10.6+ only... 10.5 support is being dropped.
This version of Wineskin Winery will still run on 10.5 and if you use manually installed items to get WS8 engines and wrappers 2.5.4, then it should still work.  The built in downloading will eventually move over to only 10.6 compatible stuff.  WS9 engines which will eventually start showing up will also be 10.6+ only.

The Weekly Dose #5

Posted Image

Hi Gamers, welcome to the fifth installment of the weekly dose. Wow, those 5 weeks went fast for me. This week is a bit small in news, but thats okay, because its awesome, fun news, Yay! More sales, more deals, more bundles and more.

If you guys noticed there wasn’t an article last week, this was mainly because of me rushing in school work for the end of the term and then being lazy as there was nothing much to write on...but it won’t happen again (hopefully). Now lets get into this weeks news

The Weekly Dose #3

June 12 2013

Hello world, Skylarzz here. This week has been crazy mad so far, everyone is going nuts (or at least everyone I know, including me). In this article we’re going to go into an extensive detail of me. Why you ask? You’ll see. Also on the agenda is coverage of E3, even if its all consoles at the moment. After that we’ll talk about the very interesting (and possibly exciting) Apple’s WWDC that just took place and finally go into some small, slightly more relaxing news. Get ready for the biggest article yet.... Enjoy :)

Hi all, Skylarzz here.

I'd love to here what you guys think about the first article in the line of many more (hopefully). Anyways, I'll stop talking about this now and get straight into it. Enjoy!

So recently the gaming side of macs has sprung up again, with heaps of new games coming out this month new ports are sure to follow. Doh123’s wineskin has stepped up a notch and has been noticed more in the gaming community, especially the OS X side of games.

Hi...people of gaming (well this is kinda awkward). I’m back, well, I’ve been back for a while except I’ve actually written something up for once now. Anyways, I’ve been away for a while due to school and friends and parents and holidays and everything else inbetween but I’ve actually finally got some spare time to write stuff (Did I mention I haven’t played a single game within the past 5-6 weeks?). Anyways, without further adieu, lets get geeky!

A collection of incredible, best-selling Indie Games? check. Cross-platform? check. Helping charity with the purchase? check. It lets you even pay what you want? check.
The Humble Indie Bundle is a collection of Games by independent developers who team up every now and then to ring up some support for charity, and to sell these games on a pay-what-you-want basis. This usually results in sales by the truckload when the Humble Bundle goes live.

In the fifth humble bundle the following games are included: Bastion, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Psychonauts, LIMBO and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
The Humble Indie Bundle V is now live until the 15th of June on the humblebundle website.

Port Database Nexus & My Nexus Pages

May 20 2012 04:46 PM | devilhunter in News

Ideas are the start of everything. And once in a while, a good one also pops up here. :)

If you are visiting us here, all bets are on that you are going to check out our Port Database.
Mac OSX Wrappers for PC Games, Ported Applications, or Freeware & Classic Ports, the Port Database has got them all.

The Port Database is easily searchable for anything, Ports can be easily posted & downloaded. But every system has a little downside.
Due to the overwhelming amount of Ports we got in it, submitted by various members, porters and users, it's becoming a little pita adventure to navigate through it.
Categories aren't helping much when you've got nearly 1200 working Ports in it, so keeping up with the latest Ports or searching are most likely the best options a system like the Port Database can give it's users.

But there can always be something better, or at least an alternative.
And a few days ago, we made a little something called the Port Database Nexus & the My Nexus Pages.
