Anyone interested in converting a PC version of TombRaider Revelation or Chronicles to a Mac version? Do the DEMO downloads for Mac still even exist?

Hey thanks for posting these instructions. My Doom 3 and Prey will get some play on the Mac.

Between this and Cider ports, I'll get to revisit all my old PC games.

I'm trying to get Doom 3 to run, but I'm somewhat lost.

I was following these instructions from page 1

Doom 3: Fully working :)

- Create a "Doom 3" folder

- Within "Doom 3" folder create this folders:
"base", "Doom3.app", "pb"

- Copy all pk4 files in "base"
- extract "Doom 3.app" from either NO-CD Patch or from 1.3 patch, if you don't have NO-CD Patch you can create a CD, CDRW, DVD or whatever with "DOOM 3", "Doom3" Label (not sure which one).
- extract *.mac files into your pb folder


I get it okay up to "extract doom 3.app" from patch 1.3 (I not doing no-cd). Also, when I go to "create" a "cd, cdrw, dvd" what am I doing? Burning a new disk? If I'm burning the Doom 3 play cd, do I need two cd drives? Plus, where are the .mac files?

Thanks for any help, I'm a noob at this.

I tested it with 2004 a long time ago, 2003 has a very similar architecture.

Hi! Does BioShock work? I have both the full PC version and the Mac demo here, and I'd like to give it a try.

You no longer have to mess with the Demo of Quake 3, head on over to

IOQuake3

And if you liked StarTrek Voyager - Elite Force, try this

StarTrek Voyager - Elite Force engine release Project

Both still require "cd keys" and the files from ether a working install, or CD/DVD
and the "StarTrek Voyager - Elite Force" is multilayer only, no missions

But they work perfect on my Hackintosh :)

most PC games can be converted straight to mac with out the need of
a demo, just cider the game , i have done many games, all you need
is the mac wrapper and the PC game and it usually runs perfectly.
I can do this and i am in my teens most of you probably can then

Cyder is quite a different thing than a native game…

…and of course is a recent developmment if we consider the age of this thread.

Sorry to bump this but I think it's worth it… Return to Castle Wolfenstein works too.
