FlareStorm is a PlayStation emulator for MacOS X, works only with Cocoa environment. It is still under development, and there is no copied codes from its OS 9 version. And, needs PlayStation BIOS ROM to run.

What's New

Version 1.2a2 adds the following:
  • Fixed CPU bugs.
  • Fixed some GTE bugs.
  • Fixed the handler for 'Flat shading textured quadrangle'.
  • Fixed some full-screen mode bugs.
  • Changed the CD Utility's interface.
  • Fixed the CD-ROM image creator's bugs.
  • Fixed the plug-in manager to use default one when selected plug-in is not valid.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.1 or later

Apparently the newer version 2.0 is not as compatible, and has some CD-ROm issues, that's prob why MacUpdate have kept the latest version at 1.2a2.

I haven't actually used this piece of software, but after a quick Google search found a page that lists all of the Mac PS emulators and includes links to the main files and any plugins available, including the latest version of Flarestorm.

When I go to the site http://www.cronos.ne.jp/~y2510/software/flarestorm2-en.ahtml, it says that it can't be found on the server. Does anyone know of an alternate link to the new version?

Flarestorm HAS been updated!! It's currently at version 2.0!!! I guess they must have just forgotten about this place. Anyway, the developer site is outdated, instead visit here:

After you click on what you want, the download link is in the middle of the page. I'm on my way to test it out! Huzzah!

I am 50 years old but interested in using this Flarestorm. I downloaded the app. What else do I do/need? I installed it and borrowed my nieghbors Playstation CD but my computer didn't recognize the CD. How do I do this stuff? I have a G3/Panther OS.

Thanks

I finally found all four discs to FF9, and the A/V plug for the playstation. It only took 4 months to find... it's a damn shame I don't have a memory card. It's also a shame that this app seems to be forgotten.

Flarestorm has potential but is way limited. I have six burnt disks and none work
at this point you would be better off jus buying PS-2 and getting original games in a pawn shop. Plus it has no compatibility with Emulator Enhancer and three of the five plug-ins wont work on G5 models says there corrupted or something Panther is ok attempting to load however Jaguar seems to be where I'm getting the most luck. I am optimistic about future releases but until then this is one emulator that wont be in my dock.

This program needs to go opensource, with only like 2 Japanese people working on it, its really slow.
