Playstation psx emulator on mac osx
An emulator is software which simulates the instruction set and behavior of a microprocessor. Simulating the architecture in an environment where that microprocessor isn’t available. (yay! I remembered something from my electronics degree!) That means you can run software designed for one architecture on another.
There are a couple of Playstation emulators available for the mac. pcsx-Reloaded is the one I use.
It’s the best one I’ve tried – it has the most options and seems to be the one that doesn’t crash!
There are a few things you need to run pcsx reloaded on your mac.
Things you need to run psx emulator on mac
- psx bios files [google link, so im not actually linking to them =]
- Playstation games (I still have a few of these in my drawer)
- a game-pad (I have a ps2 pad and a usb adaptor, you could use the bluetooth ps3 pad and a driver for it or even an iphone or an ipod touch as a controller for your psx)
