Quake2 Done Quick2 Ported to Mac
12:52 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

While many Mac gamers have enjoyed playing the Mac port of id Software's classic shooter Quake 2, there has always been one obstacle in the path of true enjoyment -- the fact that the PC mods for this game are not compatible with the Mac version, without some degree of "porting." This limitation has kept many Mac Q2 players from enjoying the wide range of mods and bots available for this game on the PC side, but a dedicated fan community with a foot in each platform has worked to bring some of these over the fence, so to speak.

One of the most popular mods for the Quake series were actually "movies" -- the Quake Done Quick demos are legendary among hardcore players, and show Quake players with almost inhuman skill blasting their way through the solo levels of the game with incredible accuracy and speed. Using moves and techniques refined through years of practice, these FPS artists can plow through dozens of levels in mere minutes, certainly giving the designers of those levels a thing or two to think about. More importantly the QDQ series is a critical teaching tool for those who aspire to achieve perfection in the fine art of blowing hideous cyborg monsters to bits.

Brandon Rich has ported the Quake2 Done Quick2 package to the Mac OS version of Quake 2, for your viewing enjoyment. He has also packed all the files needed into one 3.5 MB download, or you can grab just the Mac-specific files and then grab the PC version from the official web site.
