Descent Freespace 2 Mac Install Instructions
8:37 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Gamers interested in getting Freespace 2 to run on their Macs can do so by following instructions at the Freespace 2: The Mac OS X Port site. Based out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the work offered by the site is the result of dedicated volunteer labor.

During the past several months a determined group of programmers have been working to bring Freespace 2 to the Macintosh. These programmers have worked on the OS X port of Freespace 2 in their free time with no compensation whatsoever (save satisfaction for a job well done). That the port is as stable, if not more so, than most commercial game releases is a remarkable achievement.
A copy of the PC version of Freespace 2 is required for the port to work, as well as a few other freeware files. An ongoing forum thread on the topic can also be found in IMG's forums.
