Tropico 4 for Mac Catalina OS 10.15.x

Great news, as you may know Kalypso dropped support for Tropico 4. Luckily I was able to port the game so it is still playable in Catalina OS 10.15.x+! I tested the game a bit and I played a bit the version of the game without real issues. So if you own the game download it from your account and install and play it on Catalina!

We are always trying to bring as much games to the Mac and on the latest Mac OS Catalina 10.15.x and above. If you want to have a sneak peak of the latest games added to Porting Kit check the ratings tab in Porting Kit and check the “latest” column. or on the website and check “sort –> latest” to see the latest added or updated ports.

For Catalina users: 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.

Basic Portingkit Install Instructions GOG games:
1. Make sure you have downloaded the Portingkit App

  1. How can I install the DLC packs?

  2. The game installation fails for me. I get error message “No match was found for expected path: C:\GOG Games\*\Tropico4.exe.

    In the console log I get errors after the installer is starting action: setMainApplication ->

    020-12-11 10:42:15.27800 – INFO: Starting action: setMainApplication

  3. Also asking: how to install the DLC pack? I purchased Tropico 4 + DLC pack from Gog. Installing T4 is as easy as always, but not DLC.
