July 11, 2011 18 Comments
While checking out SpeedofMac I stumbled on this Playstation 2 Emulator for Mac OSX. This is a port of the Windows Playstation 2 emulator PCSX2. Grab the download from the Box File Widget or head over to the PCSX2 Mac homepage. You will need to set it up before you can start gaming.
Here is the How To Guide from the website. If you still have trouble check out this Forum.
This is the comprehensive guide to installing and running pcsx2/mac on your mac.
The process is straightforward, let’s first install all necessary packages
- NVidia CG framework
Download the package for Mac OS X here. Mount the disk image and double-click on the installer. Follow the instruction to install the Framework.
- xQuartz – This is not needed for Snow Leopard release
To run Pcsx2, you need X11 but not the one that comes with Leopard/Tiger. You can download the latest release of X11 from the XQuartz Project page. Double-click on the package to install it.
- PCSX2/mac + plugins
The latest package is for Snow Leopard here. This will install all the necessary runtime libs and put the application bundle into your /Applications folder. The rest is as simple as double clicking it.
You can also find the Leopard package here
