The latest version of Zoo Tycoon Complete Collection is 1.0 on Mac Informer. It is a perfect match for the Games category. The app is developed by Aspyr Media. I have a macbook pro running on Lion operating system version 10.7.2. I have a pc version of zoo tycoon 2 that I would like to play on my mac because i can't find a mac version anywhere. I've read many articles about download zoo tycoon 2 without a disk but most reference that their download (version 1.0 or 1.0.1 or 1.1.0) will work with mac version 10.2.8 or higher.which leads me to.

download does not work for me. nothing launches and it appears nothing is installed

Kelsey Smith2020-11-020 point

Got the download to work fine but the game keeps opening on a enhancement of the game window a quarter of the size of the window. are there any ways to shrink the size of the game to properly fit my computer screen or is this a 'cheating bug'? Thank you in advance.

Hello, So all goes well except when I try to remove a fence from a paddock the Beug games and leave all

Line2020-10-25-4 points

How do I get the marina and dino animals? I know you have to do reseach and progress in the game to get certain animals but I don't have anyone from the marinal mania and dinosaur digs DLCs

Noc2020-10-190 point

For those having a problem with all the animals not appearing, you have to research them to unlock them.

Chabra2020-10-010 point

I have the same problem as AQUADRAGNELL, i remember that there were a lot more animals from all dlcs, like panthers, siberian tigres, etc. What happened?

AquaDragnell2020-09-102 points

When I installed the game I didn't have all the dinos or marine animals what happened?

Cheddar2020-09-091 point

Download works perfect!!! Thank you so much!

Theepieguy2020-08-301 point

For those having problems with 'Insert CD' errors and the like. Windows likes to do something silly whenever it updates- it un-mounts all CD's. So if you still have the MARINA.iso (Which there shouldn't be a reason you do not.) That's the ISO you need to mount once again with a right click. I just created a shortcut to it on my desktop next to the complete collection icon and re-mount the file with a right-click on the shortcut. That should fix anyone's Insert CD problems.

APenguin2020-08-261 point

So I worked out why KC's fix works, and can recommend a shorter route for anyone. In the ini file, just change fullscreen = 1 to fullscreen = 0 and it should boot fine. Seems to be an issue where a lot of older games crash on startup on windows 10 if they are fullscreen.

LaBg2020-08-200 point

Dear ZSO, hire a zookeeper. Maintenance workers are there to clean up garbage and fix fences, not feed the animals. I'd recommend playing the tutorial :)

zso2020-08-17-3 points

my maintanance worker doesnt wanna give food to the animals :o what do i do??!

Sophie2020-08-131 point


RE Previous comment, sometimes I can get past the 'No CD' message, in which case it appears for a second, disappears, and leaves me unable to use my mouse for a minute until it presumably crashes. I am not at all computer savvy, but I do really want to play zoo tycoon i-i

Sophie2020-08-13-1 point

Downloaded OK, but when I try to open it says 'please insert CD ROM'. I tried the 'NOCD' file thinking maybe that is meant for that, but it doesn't open anything. Is there anything I can do?

ren2020-08-110 point

I got it to download, works fine. Thanks (-:

Anon2020-07-161 point

Works fine, I haven't got any problems (win 10)
You have to mount the zoo iso file and then the marina file which contain both expansions. If you have the no CD error just use the NOCD exe.

Aristocat2020-07-141 point

My game starts fine. However, crashes after 5 min of gameplay.
If anyone knows a fix please let me know.

kc2020-06-142 points

For anyone having trouble running the game, here is what I did to make it work on my windows 10 laptop:
1. I started by doing what everyone else in the comments said to do: mount the game via daemon tools and install it. The problem was that clicking on the game did not result in anything.
2. I watched a youtube video which told me to run the game in Windows XP compatibility mode. Same result.
3. I saw a suggestion somewhere to rename the zoo.exe file to zoodemo.exe. This caused the loading screen to pop up and then disappear.
4. In a last ditch effort, I tried copy-and-pasting the contents of zoo.ini into zoodemo.ini (which was automatically created when I renamed the exe file). THIS WORKED. I don't know why, but it did. Not that these files are found inside the Zoo Tycoon folder of your program files.
I don't know why this worked, but I decided to post it in case it helps anyone else.

Any ideas for Mac?

help2020-06-051 point

Hannah2020-06-014 points

Snacko2020-05-208 points

Got the base game to work. How do you add marine and Dino digs?

mike12020-05-19-1 point

chibarger2020-05-130 point

I have the original disk. but windows 10 stops it from installing it

Admiral Moo2020-05-072 points

For anyone having trouble with the game not starting, heres a video tutorial on how to solve the problem in the grand majority of cases: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhBez_vKxNY

Light2020-04-29-1 point

Game doesn't open. Been following some of the guides in the comments but nothing works. Also the patch won't work either.

Friendlyneighbourhoodzookeeper2020-04-264 points

For those having trouble with the 'insert disc' problem. Replace the zoo.exe in the game's directory (always know where you install your games!) with this file.

lain2020-04-191 point

in response to tia, having the same issues :(

Tia2020-04-187 points

Was playing just fine for a couple days, now I get an error message that pops up upon startup saying Please insert your Zoo Tycoon CD-ROM.
Anyone else encounter this?

FΞNRIR2020-04-173 points


- Download and mounting both images with DaemonTools goes without a problem. - - - Installing both of them as well.
- Bonus Animals have no instructions on how to install, will post if/after I figure it out...
- Patch doesn't work (saying 'Your computer does not have an appropiate version of the game installed. Setup can patch only the original Zoo Tycoon: Dinosaur Digs Version.')

Elwinra2020-04-121 point

Tried to install it with wine on my mac but the game crashes when its is charging.

Hambone2020-04-091 point

I just downloaded this and ran it using Wine HQ on my Mac. It worked perfectly!
- download the file
- open it, type wine then open the downloaded folder and drag the 'setup.exe' file into wine. this will set up the game. When you click play the game it will give you an error. Just open wine again, type wine, then drag in the setup.exe file one more time. Click play and you should be good to go!

tryingoverhere2020-04-080 point

I find I'm unable to rename any of the guests or staff. Anyone else having this issue?

Cali2020-04-040 point

Hopefully this works!

Samuel2020-04-042 points

can i play this game without CD ?

SnarkyHufflepuff2020-03-30-3 points

Hopefully someone here can help because this game is outrageously priced on Amazon...
So I've got it on Daemon, and I can get into the installer. But when I try to install the game, it says 'Zoo Tycoon encountered a disk error while writing to the file. Make sure your hard disk is not full, and that the file is not in use.'
Any tips on how to fix this? My hard disk is certainly not full. I feel life I'm so close but so far!

GG2020-03-291 point

Is anyone having trouble with the zip file? I've tried using WinRAR, 7Zip and JZip and they all act like the file is corrupted. :( Is there another download link?

gforce man2020-03-27-4 points

its good but man its missing alot of animals like the T Rex and the Dolphin

ashack192020-03-25-6 points

I have downloaded this. I am eager to play!
Could someone kindly give me a simple step by step on how to make it work? I tried with another game and failed so I gave up.

Becxter2020-03-244 points

This is what worked for me:
To run the base game in Daemon, use 'quick mount' and select the ZOO_TYCN file. You will do this to launch the game each time.
To utilize the expansion packs, do the process listed above, but choose the file, 'MARINA'. Install, and then open a saved zoo file from the base game (unsure if this part is even necessary, but I was already playing the base game). A pop-up should say that new animals and such are available.

Brooke2020-03-240 point

For the people who are getting the error message about 'please insert CD', go to your File Explorer and open up the CD Drive. In there you should find the game! There will be several folders, to start the game select the folder labeled 'Setup'

KingLich2020-03-231 point

A blast from the past

TheKree2020-03-212 points

I downloaded this, but only the base game runs. Are there special steps I missed to get the expansions working? I'm not super tech-savvy

Hello, I've download the game, but when i open it, it says 'Please insert your Zoo Tycoon: Complete Collection CD-ROM'. I don't have the CD. I read that I needed to download Daemon to solve this problem, so I did. But now I don't know what to do.. I can't choose a Zoo Tycoon file which opens in Daemon. Hope someone can help me. Thanks!

Zoo Tycoon is, as the title implies, a simulation game that allows the player to build and manage a zoo. The new manager starts from nothing, being given just a grass field and an entrance sign for the future zoo. He will then have to purchase animals, place them in exhibits, care for their health, and not forget about the other kind of animals - the visitors. To keep them happy, the manager should make the zoo comfortable, open restaurants, gift stands, and pet houses for children. The game features over forty animal species. It also provides background information about the animals - their classes, origins, habits, etc. (MobyGames)

Zoo Tycoon: Marine Mania is an expansion pack which requires Zoo Tycoon.
