    Man I would kill for a copy of that program. Might I ask where you got a hold of a copy? Also would this software run on an IBook G4? Everything I read about it always says you need a ATi Rage (pro) model GPU and a G3 mac. Does anyone know if this program works with modern day GPUs (i.e 9550 to 9700 radeon cards) and more modern day macs?

    Are you looking for Connectix VGS? Because I have a copy I'm looking to get rid of. PM me if that is the case.

    For OSX, Flarestorm or PCSX. Both can be downloaded from www.emuscene.com. Just use the cookie-crumble navigation near the top of the page to find them [Consoles->Sony Playstation->].

    I got my PS1 down from the attic and have been playing it like mad recently. not as good as what I remember. but I do have the fabled Demo1 CD, a very rare and sought after demo CD released in the UK. First one.
    Though too much Tomb Raider and my hand started to ache. damn that silly controller.

    I had several of those. They were all different :rolleyes:

    I'm pretty sure that the iBook G4 can't run OS 9, which is required.

    The Playstation BIOS is illegal to own unless you actually own the console itself. But Google is your friend in this situation, and so am I. If you need be, I can send you a copy of it via email, but by doing so you must OWN a Playstation console.

    If I had didn't get my PS1 down from the attic I would have agreed on this. I had this rose tinted vision of a super machine. But playing yesterday, I felt let down. Where Nintendo and Sega's console age so well the same can't be said about the PS1. I find the rush to 3D degraded the system somewhat, very choppy frame-rates, very bad graphics glitches really take away from the fun. The frame-rates in FF7 actually give me a migraine if I play for more than 15 minutes.

    Plus the Cube had remakes of the 2 best PS1 games - MGS and Resident Evil. I never played Resident Evil before the Cube one and bloody hell! watching my mate play the PS1 version last year I fell apart laughing at the terrible cutscenes. I always saw the RE series as serious, yet the first game just isn't. Then again I have only played RE1 and RE4 (Cube). gamecube? the PS1 but without the plethora of RPG's (but with my fave current gen RPG - Tales of Symphony).

    Unfortunately pcsx is abandoned and there is no Intel Mac version, so I'm without PSX emulation :(

    My question is this...Does anyone know where I can get a playstation BIOS ripper for OSX? I'd like to rip a few of my games on to my HD to play with one of these emulators (some of my games can't boot off the disk). EDIT I figured it out.

    Yeah, currently the only way I've found to run PSX games is through Boot Camp :(

    Do you own a Playstation? If not, you'll need to use a BIOS-less emulator such as Bleem or the Windows version of VGS.
