    Hi all,

    I was going through my old CDs and DVDs, and I found some of my favourite PS1 games (I don't have a PS anymore), and I was wondering if there are any emulators that work on PowerPCs? :D

    I really miss playing those games, and it would bring back a lot of good memories if I could play them again. :)

    If there are any, would they work on Tiger? I'm still looking for a Leopard DVD on eBay... :)

    Thanks, Alex

    You're looking for Connectix Virtual Game Station. It was a classic app, but might work well enough under classic mode on a fast Mac.

    Connectix VGS has issues with a few games which use heavy texture compression(late era 2002/2003 PSX games) or certain hardware level FPU, there used to be a emulation site which listed which games to avoid.

    PCSX works on G3/G4/G5 but you need an early PS1 1995-1997 machine to dump the ROM, these models had a data port, RCA analog & S-Video breakout(similar to the unified RCA/S-Video connector later used on the PSOne & PS2/PS2-Slim).
