And the day has come – I’m releasing a very early alpha version of 0.9.7 – it does play some games but you are advised to do a lot of save states.
I’m going to continue working on this so hopefully will get better as the time goes on.
You can grab it here: pcsx2 0.9.7.dmg
The installer includes another mandatory package – WXWidgets.pkg which should be installed after Libraries.pkg. Note that Uninstaller.pkg is going to delete the whole install but otherwise 0.9.6 and 0.9.7 coexist well.
Here’s how FFX looks on 0.9.7 vs 0.9.6:
June 30th, 2012
I’m releasing a slightly updated version of pcsx2 0.9.6 – it should crash less because of the audio plugin. 0.9.7 is proving very difficult so no update for now.
From this version onwards this becomes a regular .dmg bundle with pcsx2.app separated from the required libraries package – which is still included in the dmg by default.
You can get it from Downloads or direct link – pcsx2.dmg
The package has been cleaned so that all libraries reside in /usr/local/pcsx2 and can be removed easily. The Uninstaller.pkg included in the dmg will do that for you.
Latest version of XQuartz and CG framework still required

Unfortunately, for the last couple of months I didn’t have much time to work on pcsx2/mac and that’s why the release is getting delayed. So current timeline is it’s done when it’s done.
I’ve fixed one of the issues though and releasing the new PAD plugin which will be used for 0.9.7, should offer better compatibility as that’s the official linux PAD plugin now.
Grab it here: OnePAD

So, for 0.9.7 release I’m planning end april as a release window. Mostly because I have a week off and finally can do some final bug chasing. Just wanted to let you know
January 30th, 2011
And another release to close off my holiday week :p The zzogl plugin has been updated to svn r3536 which should fix quite a few compatibility issues and is closer to what will be used for 0.9.7 release. You can download the regular plugin dmg here. Just to remind about the installation process here’s the link for the old youtube plugin installation video
There was a problem with zzogl not showing some elements of the gui, e.g. arrow in ffx menu so that’s one of the things resolved VS

So, just to update, 0.9.7 compiles fine, most of the bugs have been rooted out, so it’s progressing nicely. Just a small preview, here’re first several minutes of ffx. Doesn’t crash after the first fmv anymore
ZZOgl has also been updated to match the more recent svn, so the video is running pcsx2 0.9.7 beta 2 equivalent pretty much.
A 13 minute ffx playthrough on the latest release can you watch here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVVCrHvjdYA

I’m releasing the latest 0.9.6 into the wild, the new link for the package is here. The package only works on Snow Leopard 10.6.3 and higher, you’ve been warned.
The new package includes the zerospu2/portaudio by default and the version of zzogl included is the latest r213 so no more downloads required.
The package should install fine on top of the previous release but I’ll also try to release an uninstaller at some point.
January 24th, 2011
I’m still having problems setting up a SL in vm so got caught up in some 0.9.7 development. So, 0.9.7 is compiled and I have the gui showing up, lots more debugging still to do but it seems possible that 0.9.6 SL and 0.9.7 will go live the same week
January 23rd, 2011
The package has been just built and ready for delivery. The only thing left is to set up the SL virtual machine in vmware to test that the package works properly on empty SL machine and this should be released.
In other news, porting work has just started on 0.9.7 current svn. You can follow some progress if impatient here: Activity
