For everyone with issues starting PCSX2 Mac
(05-02-2012, 11:04 AM)Kaze Wrote: There is a FAQ section below, please check it before asking Smile

I have made 2 guides that revolves around starting up PCSX2 and some issues around that. The screenshots are for the first guide only. And some are cropped because of file size restrictions. There is also a FAQ section now at the bottom of this post.

MAJOR NOTE 01:
Confirmed working for Mountain Lion and PCSX2 0.9.7 (With some "Dafuq just happened"-issues as some of the issues seemed to solve themselves completely randomly...)

MAJOR NOTE 02:
I know many people make disclaimers, so I am gonna do it too (Just in case of the off-chance of something messing something completely up...)

MAJOR NOTE 03:

Disclaimer:
I am not responsible for anything that happens to your computer, be it PCSX2 working or it blowing itself up.

NOTE:
The guides are confirmed to be working for PCSX2 0.9.6 for Snow Leopard and Leopard.
If someone has similiar issues with 0.9.7 for Lion, it would be appreciated if you could test these guides and then post your results, conclusions or whatchamacallit ^_^

Another NOTE:
The second guide is made primarily for fixing the following error in Terminal:
Code:
No Info.plist file in application bundle or no NSPrincipalClass in the Info.plist file, exiting
But it can also be used just to make it so that you can launch it right from dock/.app/alias or w/e ^_^

Yet another NOTE:
It shouldn't be necessary to write this, but as I have seen some less "educated" members post here...
Please read the forum rules... ALL OF THEM!

SMALL NOTE:
This should be the right procedure to use for ripping your PS2 DVD's ^_^


Step One:
First make sure you have downloaded XQuartz

Step Two:
The PCSX2

Step Three:
And also the NVidia GC Frameworks (The GC Frameworks is down, but you can TRY, I make no promises about anything, to install the CG Toolkit...)

Step Four:
Install all wich you have downloaded. I wont be posting screenshots for that since I wont take the risk of destroying my PCSX 2 since I used so long time to get it up and running.

Step Five:
Then when all is downloaded and installed, you search for an application named XQuartz, open it.

Step Six:
You need to enable root user, here is a guide for that.

Step Seven:
Then type the following:
cd /Applications/pcsx2.app/contents/macos/ (press enter)
sudo tcsh (you will be asked to provide a password, provide the password for your root user)
(if you dont see anything while you type the password, dont worry, you are not supposed too see anything, it has with security to do)
./pcsx2 (this will after all your work, open ut the ever glorious PCSX2 MAC!!!!!!)

- Kaze



If the above guide do not work quite well for you, try this one IN ADDITION to the above one. Also this guide makes you able to open up PCSX2 with just double clicking on the app or an alias for the app. And I am quite aware that there probably is a better way to do this, but this is how I made this guide because I don't feel like delve too deep into something I finally got working properly.



First you open x11 (NOT xQuartz) then press Command+N or click "Applications" on the menubar and select "Terminal" thereafter you type the following:
(please make sure your PCSX2.app is in your applications forlder)
sudo tcsh (you will be asked for password as usual)
chmod +x /applications/pcsx2.app
chmod +x /applications/pcsx2.app/*
chmod +x /applications/pcsx2.app/contents/macos/pcsx2
logout(or)exit

Then close x11, quit it totally.
Download Batchmod and open it, then change "Owner" too your username and "Group" to "nogroup". Then check all the  "R W X"s, the "Change ownership and privileges" and the "Apply to enclosed folders and files" then uncheck "Unlock", "Clear ACL's (10.5+)" and click Apply (there is likely you also will be asked for a password here too).

Then open up Terminal and type
sudo open /applications/pcsx2.app

Then everything should work alright ^_^

Have fun
- Kaze



FAQ section:
(far from finished ofc, just ask anything)

Q:
I get this code
Code:
***A crapload of text above this point***
* PCSX2 *: ExecuteBios
Offset 0xea000000 invalid. Legit SIGSEGV. Aborting.
pcsx2.sh: line 2: 46030 Bus error               ./pcsx2

A:
Okay, you need to go and rip the BIOS from YOUR OWN Playstation 2

---

Q:

A:
Follow the first guide

---

Q:

A:
I forgot to mention that the second guide is primarily to fix this particular issue, but it also makes you able to open it regulary. Editing post now.

---

Q:

A:
Yes, that happens whenever you already have logged in with sudo in the same session and then logged out of the console or not closed Terminal/X11 completely.

In other words, if it says #root, just continue on to the next step ^_^

---

Q:

A:
BPT trap errors are usually caused by you missing some of the requirements, CG Toolkit, PortAudio(where applicable), etc etc...

---

Q:

A:
Segmentation fault is caused by bad rips, you will need to re rip your ISO.

I am having the exact same problem. PCSX2 was working fine for me, then I tried to play Gran Turismo 4 and then it just crashed and refuses to reopen. I have followed all the steps correctly, and I am unsure why this is happening.

I am using a mid-2011 13' MacBook Pro running Yosemite.

Maybe one of your requirements broke or you changed some settings? Tried renaming the ini folder?

Hi, I downloaded all the programs and followed all steps the program begins to load then I input any iso that I own and it acts like it's going to load when it says executing in the terminal and then says initialize room successful then it says segmentation fault: 11 logout and closes on me can you help me?

most of the time, it's because your iso is faulty.
what did you use ? command line or discutil ?

Command line why? But the iso works on my Windows computer

maybe the game isn't compatible with pcsx2 for mac then.
give the wine wrapper version a try : http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-PCSX2-CE-...2015-Guide

Hi, i followed the steps, and can play the game without checking "EERec - EE/IOP recompiled (Need MMX/SSE/SSE2)", however the game will be extremely slow.

There are some people said I can check it back once the game started. However, no matter how long the game started, whenever I checked the box, the error below shown and the game closed.

THE MESSAGE:
"Offset 0xea0fccf0 invalid. Legit SIGSEGV. Aborting.
pcsx2.sh: line 2: 3569 Segmentation fault: 11 ./pcsx2"

I am using MacBook Air with OS X EI Captian. Any reply will be most appreciated.

Can someone direct me to a guide for El Capitan? CURRENTLY, i'm using a version PCSX2 0.9.8 that was wrapped by Wineskin & this was provided to me by a YouTuber named SkaazyTV. He is Spanish, or so I believe he speaks that, because of one his folders is written in Spanish. I'm afraid if I change the title of the folder it might screw up something. Anyway, will someone PM me or reply about troubleshooting this thing? & maybe just trashing it, & starting over with a different PCSX2 setup that may be better?

All Mac users just use this. One download. Simple. It works for me and I'm currently on Sierra.
