Guides on emulating older games

A sequel in name only, this follow up to id’s 1996 Quake, is a first-person shooter revolving around the Earth-Strogg war. The Strogg alien race threatens the Earth, but Earth has launched a counter-offensive, Operation Alien Overlord. Overlord takes the battle to the Strogg homeworld with the ultimate objective of securing their capital city and killing their ruler.

As a FPS, Quake II contains a variety of weapons including the fall back Blaster, the Railgun, and the secret BFG10K. Health, armor, and ammunition pick-ups can be found during levels, as can the classic Quake’s Quad Damage power-up. Game play involves mowing down alien opponents as the player progresses through levels, completing in-game objectives. Quake II also comes with multiplayer support for Deathmatches.

upload of the original disk, with cutscenes and all, is desperately needed.

It's up there now (DL #2).

You know restudying this page, I think a upload of the original disk, with cutscenes and all, is desperately needed. Also addons; I don't think i've ever successfully compiled ccd2iso.

Like Quake 1, if Anyone's having difficulty downloading Frutz of Dojo's latest Quake2 Build or a mirror's simply not working, you can download the latest version of his build on wayback here:
Just ignore the pixelated breasts and go straight for the download. And it's universal binary!
Also the Quake2 mission packs/official addons can be found here:
They're in Clone CD format however, so you'll need ccd2iso to convert them into iso images.
Instruction on how to build ccd2iso with MacPorts can be found here:

I made a new archive of Quake II using what was uploaded here originally and adding other stuff I was able to find on the web, and zipped it all into a smaller file for download. The site wouldn't let me upload the archive, but I've made the mirror available.

UPDATE: new archive is now uploaded to the site

I haven't experimented as much as I want with this, but I do know that Toast 5 Titanium can save the two disc partitions separately. Drag the Audio CD onto Toast and click on "Save as image", likewise with the data partition. I've run into weirdness when I tried to do them together before, but then I didn't spend enough time with it. Toast 5.2.3 might be more capable in this regard than 5.0.2. The problem is I haven't found a way to mount an audio CD for gameplay, though it can be burned to a recordable CD.

Hey j_damage•69, do you still have the original Quake II CD?

Don't run it from the disk image.

It runs, but I am unable to save my game, as it crashes when I attempt to do so.

It uses the same data files, but I bet...

  1. the DMG is compressed, which means it can't be mounted on Mac OS 7-9
  2. The classic application is not included, so even if the DMG can be mounted the game can't be run

It's better to upload a virgin copy of the original CD image as a Disk Copy image, because this way both owners of old Macs and Mac OS X users can play the game. The only problem is that Mac OS X users must download the binary for their system separately, but that's peanuts.

Wouldent the original Quake 2 app work with the data files already in there? Or has it been modified in some way but the OS X update?

Can somebody upload the original Quake II for Mac? It's for Mac OS 7.5 and up.

And please don't upload bundles! If there's a Mac OS X binary of a classic game, a link to the developer's page is better.
