This is the comprehensive guide to installing and running pcsx2/mac on your mac.
The process is straightforward, let’s first install all necessary packages
- NVidia CG framework
Download the package for Mac OS X here. Mount the disk image and double-click on the installer. Follow the instruction to install the Framework.
- xQuartz – This is not needed for Snow Leopard release
To run Pcsx2, you need X11 but not the one that comes with Leopard/Tiger. You can download the latest release of X11 from the XQuartz Project page. Double-click on the package to install it.
- PCSX2/mac + plugins
The latest package is for Snow Leopard here. This will install all the necessary runtime libs and put the application bundle into your /Applications folder. The rest is as simple as double clicking it.
You can also find the Leopard package here
