Darkest Hour for Mac

Also on Request! We added Darkest Hour (A Europa Universalis game) for Mac (GOG.com source) to Porting Kit and Crossover. Game works great on even low-end Macs. Played this game on my Intel HD 5000 Macbook Air, without issues. You do need to turn off/deselect the “intro movies” in the game launcher, or the game will crash on start :P Enjoy!

Developed by a team of experienced modders from the Paradox forum, Darkest Hour is a stand-alone Hearts of Iron game. The game features a mixture of short and in-depth campaigns set across the darkest chapters of the 20th century. Play from the outbreak of the Great War up until the onset of the Cold War.

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

Download the Porting Kit up here… or when you own Crossover, this Crosstie…

Darkest Hour (A Hearts of Iron game) for Mac


  1. I tried downloading Darkest Hour but it crashed when the intro movie started. You said to delete this. How do i delete the file that starts the intro. Thank you.

    1. As already mentioned in the notes, you need to deselect the “intro movie” in the game launcher.

  2. How do you exactly do that. Sorry for all the questions. Its the first time I download a game through Porting Kit.

    1. When you start Darkest Hour, you get a launcher with all kind of options. in those options there is a selectbox “Intro movies” just deselect that box and start playing. ;)

    1. Darkest Hour Launch screen.

      I installed the game from scratch from Porting Kit. After install and click play, I get this launcher above. Then deselect that option and the game launches fine.
