Dark screen freezing - edited
#1
Hello,

I have encountered some serious problems trying to run PCSX-2 on my mac.

My computer specifications :

Ver. 10.6.7
2,4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4GB RAM

I'm using PCSX-2 ver 0.9.6 with Bios SCPH-70004 which is being recognised by PCSX-2 as EUROPE v02.00.

The problem is, when I'm starting, the window where the game should appear, I can see only black screen, and FPS counter freezes. This is what I can read in PCSX-2 console:

F1 - save state
(Shift +) F2 - cycle states
F3 - load state
PCSX2 beta (r2620254) - compiled on Jan 27 2011

And here I have this blank screen and emulation freezes.

I have also done everything what is written here:

I'm not an experienced OSX user, so I'm not sure if every step I made gave a positive result. For example, I'm not sure if I succeeded with enabling the root account ?

The BIOS I'm using is the only one I have got and can check. I can't get another one ! Can enyone can tell if this particular bios works correctly ?
What causes PCSX2 to feeze ?

Best regards, Pawel.

The mac port can't run bios only.
You'll have to use fast boot.
Second, it's possible your game isnt compatible yet with the mac port.
And finally, if you can upgrade your os to lion, you'll be able to use the latest 0.9.7 beta, which is better
