Mission Pack add-on to the Quake II game by id Software and created by Rogue Entertainment:
Quake II Mission Pack - Ground Zero, requires the full version of Quake II to run.

In the expansion's story, the Gravity Well has trapped the Earth Fleet in orbit above the planet Stroggos. One of the marines who managed to land, Stepchild, must now make his way to the Gravity Well to destroy it and free the fleet above and disable the entire defenses of the planet.

Excerpt: Wikipedia entry.

This copy has been extracted from the PC version of the game. It does not play in the official classic Mac version of Quake II as it lacks required native Mac .lib's to enable play.

However: It will play just fine if using the "Fruitz of Dojo" port of the Quake II game player, made for Mac OS X.

If you have, know of, or even if there was an original classic Mac release of Ground Zero, please consider adding a copy of that CD release to this page. Thank you.
Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

Currently, Mac OS X only.

To start the Ground Zero mission pack, drag the "rouge" folder onto the Fruitz of Dojo's Quake II player's icon to launch the game.

The original soundtrack has been saved to .mp3 format. When the game first launches, you are given a choice to play either CD, MP3 or MP4 files. Choose MP3 and select the included "audio" folder to have the soundtrack playing during the game.

Thanks, Scott. It's good to hear that it runs on your MDD 2003. Sorry to hear about the bugs. I haven't gotten through the game as far as the Research Hangar as yet. Still to finish Unit 1, but I will keep my eyes open for it to see if it can't be resolved.

This game works on power mac g4 1.25 Ghz mirror door 2003 running mac os x 10.5.8 with Radeon 9800 pro 128MB card but there some bugs in games. The lot of lift don't work and bug in one of levels called Research hangar. One objective put airstrike marker near the anti gun then reprogram the anti gun but when I did this. You can't continue in game. I did the objective. The game did not tell me objective is complete. I have walkthrough of game. After you complete the objective the game will tell you waste processing plant in broken pipe. That walkthrough of game said.
