EDuke32 supports macOS.


Install the Xcode command line utilities and Homebrew.

Run the following in a terminal window:

brew install make sdl2 flac libvpx


Type gmake -j4 and hope for the best! For debug builds, run gmake RELEASE=0.

Game Data

If you own a digital copy of the game with native support for macOS, EDuke32 will automatically detect its default install location and use any game data it finds! Otherwise, to play the game, the files you need are DUKE3D.GRP and DUKE.RTS. They, as well as any other data you have, such as music packs and mods, can be placed in ~/Library/Application Support/EDuke32/.


Once everything is in place, you should be able to run the .app bundle. Enjoy!
