Yes it does work, I have played halfway through Ape Escape 3, with occasional slowdowns on a 2.93GHz Core i3. If it doesn't work on PSCX2, it will not work on a soft-modded PS2 hardware. Sad

Dolphin also works, possibly better, for GameCube/Wii emulation as well. You can see YouTube videos of Super Mario Galaxy running in 720p (which is impossible on the Wii), and apart from a few white textures very occasionally, it is as good as the console experience.

I have tried the previous version (PCSX test 3) in 2 PPC G4s (350Mhz & Quicksilver 2002ED).
It was great for some old PS1 games with low graphics reqs...

The sad thing about the latest version is that s not Universal Binary! (baaaadd....)

Sorry MadMac, I think he means the Playstation 2 emulator -- PCSX2.

Don't know why he would put this in the Mac Garden, as I believe it is Win/Linux only.

No it isn't, it is available for Mac OS X too: http://pcsx2mac.net/

edit: uh I wanted to quote themacmeister, but that didn't work out as planned. Wink

PCSX2 is - indeed - a Playstation 2 emulator. Apparently, you can pop a PS2-CD/DVD into your Mac, and it works!! if this is true, I will buy quite some PS2 games off of ebay!! Laughing out loud

Performance and compatibility is gonna be the issue. As with any emulator.

You'd be better off just buying a PS2 as they're dirt cheap nowadays.

I like to play (when I have spare time) Dino Crisis and Parasite eve on the ePSXe emulator...
and fatalframe on PCSX2
hey!
I think this question is out of MacGarden context.

Yes, there probably is an outdated beta that 'barely' works on Mac.

I remember struggling for a long time to get one game working in PCSX-Mac. Besides getting just the program, the great majority of plugins are not available on the Mac.

PS. I was thrilled to see Mupen64 Plus 1.5 ported to the Mac -- it ROCKS, and can play Super Mario 64 PERFECTLY (the only emulator to do so - and I have tried them all).

Nope, PCSX2 Mac is not outdated, it is updated regulary, and so is PCSX Mac
you should visit macscene.net more often if you are interested in emulation on mac. Wink

I have the softmod for real PS2, and I am prepared to softmod a memory card if you need it done... better to find someone local tho... I am launching all my games via ethernet off shared folder. It works surprisingly well, and is way faster than USB 1.1.

I only have Slim PAL models, so no HDD adaptor for me Sad

I can't get Mupen64Plus to work on my 64-bit Mac. I tried using the readme to get to it, but alas, it says it's just a directory from the Terminal's POV...
