Default TR2 on macOS

Hi there

Do you know how can I play to Tomb Raider II on macOS?

I've been searching day and night. I don't understand why they have been removed the game from the App Store...

Thank you for your help !

It's something to do with Apples new OS not supporting older software, I think. I still have TR2 and TRU downloaded from the app store. TR2 runs fine, but Underworld now has alot of crashing issues :/.

I do have TR2 on iOS though (before they removed it from the App Store) but whenever I launch the app, the game remains black

Unfortunately TR2 iOS version was different then the TR2 on Mac App Store, so there is no way I can put it there.

Since Mac OS 10.15 Catalina, Apple has gotten rid of 32 bit code support. TR2 was never ported to 64 bit, so it was removed from Mac App Store.

Well I have tried with OpenEmu, but the keyboard doesn’t reply, so I just have access to the main menu. (At least I can enjoy the music )

Go to OpenEmu settings. Open Controls tab. Select Sony Playstation from the list. Map keyboard keys to PS buttons.

Thanks!

Finally the problem was coming from the mac settings not allowing OpenEmu to use the keyboard

Now I am looking for a way to get new textures because the original game looks awful compare to the iOS version

TR II on iOS doesn't work anymore after iOS 13.
