Arma Gold for Mac

Yes! it’s back on GOG.com and it’s back in the Porting Kit database: Arma Gold for Mac! The game is one of the 4 games (just as Arma Cold War Assault), which has been back on GOG.com. I tested the game for an hour or so (first campaign mission) without any issues on my Catalina Macbook pro. It’s quite fun for an action game. It has lots of options and its quite realistic in a way (not graphicly), but it is quite intelligent. Feel free to play it yourself, it’s only 1,59 at the moment on GOG.com you won’t regret it :).

Still For Catalina users (not long anymore): Make sure SIP is disabled and that the Porting Kit app is located in your Apps/Application folder. If you want SIP to be enabled, I strongly recommend Crossover for now for the time being.
