How can I play natively Quake 2 on OS X 10.7 or above?

  • Wasn't the source code to Q2 released ages ago? – Shadur Mar 12 '13 at 19:57
  • Yes but without art, and I think that is not just compile the code and run...IF compiles in current systems. – LuisEspinoza Mar 12 '13 at 20:04
  • You're going to have to legally acquire the data files one way or another -- I think the game's on steam, come to think of it. gaming.stackexchange.com will not help you pirate games. – Shadur Mar 12 '13 at 20:06
  • Of course, i'm talking about running the game, not pirate the game. – LuisEspinoza Mar 12 '13 at 20:09
  • Install yamagi quake, then copy the .pak files to the directory as per the installation instructions. Done. – Shadur Mar 12 '13 at 20:17

NOTE: I don't actually have OS X myself, but...

Yamagi Quake seems to be the most popular port of the quake 2 source code -- and the most recent release includes OSX support. You'll need the data files from the original CD to actually play, of course, but that's beyond the scope of this site.
