    On emulator or anything. Not including bootcamp, lol. Yea well I pretty much found nothing on fighting for mac. I wonder if they can get that cps3 emulator on mac so I can run street fighter III. Btw i got a mbp SR.

    I dont really like Fightings, but Oni is a really great game. In addition to awesome moves it has an incredible storyline. I highly recommend it :)

    That's the closest thing that I could think of to a 'fighting game' made for OS X.

    My personal favorite fighting game ever is Soul Calibur, either the first or the second, but mentioning emulators there opens yourself up to pretty much any fighting games but SC and Tekken...

    The emulators are limited arent they? like the best i can think of is street fighter II turbo on SNES. But im looking for a game like street fighter III. is there a dreamcast emulator? or PSX emulator? or any arcade fighter emulators?

    There's MAME, which I think emulates arcade machines. And there is indeed a PSX emulator. It goes by PCSX, and you have to find the ROM file yourself (because being in possession of one is apparently illegal, or something.)

    Because it crosses copyright law. Copyright law says the creator of a work can say how it is distributed/copied for X years (currently a large number). Software is something that falls under copyrights. It isn't that possession of a copyrighted work is illegal... distribution without permission of the creator is (in US law, anyways). However, while I haven't seen it tested, posting a link to copyrighted work could be considered akin to distribution.

    Well, that would at least break the forum rules. :)

    If you want fighting games, you're gonna have to use emulation. Dreamcast emulation requires Windows.

    I second Oni for the closest thing you can get to a fighting on the Mac.

    I agree with the vote for Oni, but it won't run on Intel systems. :(

    Really? Even in Rosetta?

    I only played it on PPC Macs: iMac G3 (OS9), eMac and my current iMac G5 (both OSX)...

    There is no Intel native version, so Rosetta is the only option. Crashes before loading.

    PCSX works very well, and Flarestorm 2 does almost as well (Flarestorm doesn't require BIOS either). Of course, you shouldn't pirate, etc, etc. I wasn't a huge fan of my PS1 as a fighting game platform anyway, especially compared to my Dreamcast (Soul Calibur was just incredible).

    There is a patch called OniOSXfix available on oni.bungie.org. It might be somewhere in the forums. They'll help you out. I have been using it run Oni on my MacBook Pro. (Runs well in Rosetta)

    Oni Intel Mac Help

    Yeah I'm having trouble with loading Oni too. It says I need to select an installation directory for Oni. What is that? I'm puzzled, where would it even be?

    It means to select the folder you installed it to. Probably /Applications/Oni/
