    Quake II for Mac is a PowerPC application, which are no longer supported (i.e. they won't install or run) under OS X Lion or Mountain Lion. The last version of OS X that included PowerPC support (i.e. Rosetta) was Snow Leopard.

    Third party..

    Yes i know that i need to use a third party application that can run the game. But i don't understand how to do it..? When i follow the online guides i can find around google.com i can get as far as the game opens, and then i get a video card error.. So i am looking for a working solution and i really hope that someone in here, maby a ultra Mac G33k can help me, because it's a problem you cant get help to other places on the internet and deffenetly not in the retail stores.
