Apparently, there is a newer version available somewhere other than the official website. I have it, and as long as you have the BIOS for the PS2, it runs perfectly!

When ever I got a save point none of the memory cards are showing up so that I am abel to. Even when getting into a battel senairo the graphics freeze. Do I really need to find bios now to properly use the emulator. Game is FF8 off of CD, works fine on consol as well on a windows emulator.

I also can't get my controller to work. In my case, none of the buttons work during the emulation, though I was able to configure them in the preferences (indicating the software sees the controller.)

I can't get it to find my bios (scph1001.bin) and I swear to spaghetti that I've got it in the right folder... macintosh HD/library/application support/Pcsx/Bios/scph1001.bin, but it still doesn't work. Any help or comments would be appreciated. And I have a 1.8 G5 with OS X 10.3.

Has anyone had a problem with HID controllers? The D-Pad and Analog controls NEVER work for me, yet all other buttons do just fine. Weird. Any suggestions?

Wow. Very good. It runs FFVII Beautifully at a constant 60 fps, which, I believe, is what a regular PSX runs at. At first it would become choppy during battles, but to fix that, turn Dynarec CPU core off. I am using a PSX bios, so I don't know what effect not having one will have on stability. I'm running it on a 1.8 ghz Imac G5 1 gig ram. It is much more stable and constant than flarestorm which would at some points run too fast, while at other points run super slowly.

Great start! It actually ran all the games I tried (I barely got Flarestorm to run anything). Speed was (predictably) slow on my G3 800, but it is an early version. Running the games from disc images also improved performance greatly as disc access is pretty slow. Hopefully there is a hardware OpenGL renderer planned? That should improve the graphics and maybe the speed too.

Works great! Good work, whoever created this! Now I don't have to boot into OS 9 to use Virtual Game Station (which doesn't have as good graphics as this emulator). I'm having some trouble saving and using memory cards with Chrono Cross but I understand that this is still in development. Keep up the good work!

This Emulator actually works out of the box. I'm having decent results running Final Fantasy VII. There is always room for improvement but this is definitely a great first version. Congrats to the developer, please keep up the good work, we need good developers in the emulator community, let us know how we can help.

Can you simply put a PSone game in the Mac drive and start playing? I'd love to hear people's experience with Wipout 2097.

(To those who are having stability problems, try using a real BIOS instead of the emulated one) Tried it with Final Fantasy 7, and it worked great on a G3/800 iBook. FMV was nearly smooth (a hiccup every 30 seconds or so - looks like a caching algorithm needs some optimization), but in battles it slowed down tremendously to about quarter speed, if that. Here's hoping this can be optimized, as the old CVGS ran perfectly on a G3/233 back in the day. Final Fantasy 9, always a troublesome game for emulators, did not work. Garbled screen, one note of music, and it crashed. Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo ran perfectly, except for the lack of game music (according to the read me, CD sound isn't ready just yet). Need for Speed 3 ran just under half-speed. Very strange experience. Interface looks great for a first release (Flarestorm is nice, but by and large Japanese programs have horrible, horrible interfaces). Here's hoping the performance improves, because so far it looks great!

Great idea...in fact fantastic idea, but I keep getting a crash whenever I try to startup (Powerbook G4 10.3.7). Man this would be great....I would love to play Syphion Filter. Hopefully Gil can get some of these bugs fixed. Keep trying Gil.

On OS X 10.2.8, the program does an unexpected quit immediately after it was launched. Anyone else experienced this?

Really good start for this program. I had two titles for playstation I would like to play again. This is Abes Oddysee Abes Exoddus In my pint of view the best Jump and Run Games made in the last 10 years. First there are a lot of sound distortions in both games. The film sequences work fine, but the are a lot of grafic glitches. Looks like unpainted areas. If you setup a gamepad in part 1 of the game this is working during start of the game, but in the game there is a message the the wrong controller is selected or there is no controller. Anyway the contol with gamepad (Gravis Eliminator Pro) is glitchy when selecting menus. In part 2 of the game the gamepad is working in the game, but the other problems are stil existent. Tested with Bios SCPH1001.BIN. Anyway a good start and hopefully this 2 games will work later to review this software with 5 stars :-)

This is remarkable and excellent! I have tested it with 10 games and all load and run perfectly! It even runs one of my games that VGS didn't... The only thing I would love is configurable keyboard controls... but since this is a beta, I cannot really complain about that. Thank you, and excellent work!
