Welcome to the Gothic 2 Mac game page. This page contains information + tools how to port Gothic 2 so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application using Crossover. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then sign up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial. Or use the Porting Kit alternative.
If you don’t own the game yet, get Gothic 2 from GOG.com which is DRM free there and runs out of the box. Click on the links mentioned here, create an account using the signup in the top bar on the GOG.com website and buy the game. You automatically get when creating an account 14 free GOG games (+ some dlc’s) added to your account so you have nothing to loose, only to receive! Make sure the setup file is downloaded into your download folder before running the Crosstie, so that Crossover recognizes the file and launches the setup automatically.
Important: The files: vdfs32e.exe and vdfs32d.exe are not needed and needs to be deleted after installation of the game into the wrapper. You can find it int the wrapper (Rightclick wrapper –> show package content –> c_drive –> program files –> navigate to gothic game folder –> system –> and delete the 2 files. In the same folder you also have to replace the gothic.ini file with the one brought with the wrapper (iMac or Macbook gothic.ini version). Then you are done and ready to play!
The glorious days of the once productive mines in this small seaside region were long over. Surrounded by the impenetrable magical barrier, the slaves eked out their miserable existence in this apparently natural prison. One brave man managed to burst the bonds of imprisonment. Willing to do whatever was necessary, he went out to banish Evil and destroy the magical barrier forever. No one in Khorinis had been prepared for this.
