Dude, disable the OS X Gatekeeper and will work perfectly. Google for "How to Allow Apps from Anywhere in macOS High Sierra Gatekeeper"

Mounted the image
Double clicked on Quake
Got the following message: “Quake” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should eject the disk image.

Works (almost) flawlessly in El-Capitan, MacMini 4GB ram. But the weapons changed by itself... the update won't work.

no problem. I can live with that! Thanks! Go to and seek for quake music. I found the music there, and then simply set the location of the music there

Awesome game, but the only issue is that it has no music!!!, the music of this game was awesome, what can I do to put the music in this game??, cheers!

I'm running MacOS 10.10.2 (Yosemite), and it works fine for me. What I did was, I opened "QuakeII_1_0.toast" and copied "baseq2" and the game itself into my applications folder.

Then for the update I opened "QII_108_Update.dmg" and took the took the only file inside "into 'baseq2' folder" and put it in there (in the newly created applications baseq2). I don't know though, if that actually updated the game, as I don't know the difference.

I have one problem though. When I relaunch the game, all my options are reset to default. My safe game is there, luckily, but not the keybindings, resolution changes etc. I remember the same problem from when I played it as a child 15 ears ago.

If anyone knows how to fix this, I'd be pleased if you'd tell me on hans (dot) august (at) gmail (dot) com. Trying to avoid spammers, don't know if it works. Never mind. Enjoy the game people :)

Just in case no one can tell from the release date of this title: This will NOT run on MacOS X.
