Quake II for Mac1.1

09 October 2020

Port of the popular first-person shooter game.

What is Quake II for Mac

This is the source code for the MacOS X port of Quake 2. The port was originally released on MacOS X 10.0. The goal was to create a carbon-less native port that would not rely on any legacy APIs.

Note: This is not a game itself, but a way of playing Quake 2 on modern machines. You still need to have an original version in order to play.

What's new in Quake II

Version 1.1:
  • Recompiled as Universal Binary.
  • Redesigned startup dialog.
  • Optimized the software renderer for windowed modes.
  • Windowed modes (software renderer) are now resizeable.
  • The game will renderer inside the Dock document icon (instead of the application icon) if minimized.
  • Screenshots are now saved in PNG format.
  • Minor bug fixes.

Twice now in the last month (most recently about an hour ago) launching Quake II has caused my MacBook to spontaneously restart. Has anyone else encountered this issue? I've got an original MacBook, 1.83ghz, 2gb RAM and I'm running 10.5.4. Knowing my luck it's my hardware. :)

So I've got a few QII add-ons (Reckoning, Ground Zero and Juggernaut). Does anyone know how to use them with this application, or do I need to boot into Windows to use them? I can't find any information at all on how to use them.

Same person as the last comment... Updated to 10.4.2 w/ Quicktime 7.0.1 and still no music. Can I at least get some info as to how I would fix it myself by maybe modifying the sourcecode to use QT7's MP3/MP4 driver and compile it with Xcode? :-(

Music is broken in 10.4 and when Quicktime 7 is installed. Wondering if anyone still cares enough about this old game to fix the problem ;-( ...

It's great, except that it slows down the key repetition rate after quitting the game. I''ve set it to maximum in System Preferences and after running Quake II I have to go and move the slider back and forth to get back the speed of key repeat.

Same issue here with M-Audio sound card. Must be a driver bug or something. I hope it can be fixed, I love Q2.

I agree, Anonymous, it DOES seem faster, and the graphics just plain look more colorful and sharp. Quite possibly the most complete and compatible patch I've ever used. Well done, Fruitz of Dojo.

Good old Quake 2 is back for OSX! The old fav with great gameplay is finally ported to OSX. Installation is easy and well documented. Performance is just like Q2 under OS9. Fire up the LAN party!
