I guess this the most closely related forum to ask about this. Besides, Paratech's $98 laptop is getting old.

pSX Author once said somewhere that a friend of his was working on a Mac port (or wanted to work on one) of pSX.

Is that still happening? I know some of MAMEDev has collaborated with pSX Author in the past so I thought maybe you might know a little something..just to feed the rumor mill.

pSX runs remarkably well on XP via Parallels on my Mac though, which is pretty amazing.

Given there's a working Linux version with very nice OpenGL rendering I would assume OS X is a chip shot. I don't know anything specific about any pSX port though though.

alright then. I guess it takes someone who really wants to do it. They would have to track down pSXAuthor and beat his door down and then get him to trust them with the source code first. Probably not happening!

Wow, that would be awesome. There hasn't been a good PlayStation emulator for the Mac since VGS.

Oh I disagree. PCSX was pretty good...

Yep, because it was the only working emulator for OS X smile
But it was slow and compatibility wasn't that good.

I had no idea pSX author was collaborating with some mamedev, can you give more details about this collaboration? is it for the benefit of pSX, or MAME or both?

Both. And that's all the detail you're getting.

I used to chat a lot with pSXAuthor, but it was a semi decade ago, long before he became an emuceleb, and when he was easily accessible. We were talking about technical stuffs, or psx gaming, or other stuff you don't need to know about... I still remember how he impressed me with his rock solid technical knowledge of the PS1, and even tho I never asked him, I knew who he was working for... *cough*

In all honnesty I'm surprised that his emulator isn't perfect yet and can benefit from mame. I thought it would long be perfect by now, but it's been years I haven't launched a psx emulator nor visited his website, so I did never check confirmation.

Oh! And I think I won't offend pSXAuthor by revealing that one of his most favorites PS1 games was Valkyrie Profile, like me. Tho I will not reveal which ps2 games he could run even at that time. :x

smf's run a lot of low-level tests on real hardware (as has pSXAuthor) so they have plenty to share (most recently on bit-perfect GTE operations).

the real question is why shouldn't they collaborate? I mean, sharing info is positive for both open & close source projects because it can lead to new discoveries and better implementations...

I'm hearing that pSXAuthor has done his own port...

Looks like I'll have to check on http://psxemulator.gazaxian.com/ several times a day now..

Gah. In the forum move I forgot to turn on e-mail verification. I've done so now...
