    Metal Gear Solid on Mac OS X

    ok... so i FINALLY Managed to get it working. I had the PC version but due to difficulties with Bootcamp, Crossover, Crossover Games AND Cider... i was forced to emulate it. I downloaded a PSX torrent (Disc 1 and Disc 2) and the PCSX emulator for Mac OS X Now originally the game was crashing on me and when i figured out how to run it it was slow but still very playable now i managed to get the speed up to about what it would normally be here are my settings for anybody else with what options are checked (access the settengs under Preferences) Emulation Tab: Check Parasite Eve 2, Vandal Hearts 1/2 Check SIO IRQ Always Enabled Uncheck all other options (especially "Dynarec CPU Core" this will cause EVERY SINGLE GAME to crash) Plugins Tab: Under Graphics Click Configure Check Use Frame Skipping Change "Dither Graphics" to "Never" Check Enable Hacks (this enables hack selection) Check Use PC FPS Calculation Check Lazy Screen Updates Check Use Old Frame Skipping Uncheck all other options Now MGS will be running much faster making it easier and more enjoyable to play! Also, if you wish to boot ISO's (assuming you already own the original game OF COURSE! otherwise thats pirating... but who am i to stop you... lol!) you must download a plugin called Mooby CD Disk Image Drive, then when you go to Run CD it will bring up a browsing menu where you can select your ROM NOTE: I have not gotten to the disk swap point so i have no idea how well that works I assume you go to Edit > Eject CD then go to File > Run CD and load the ROM

    Metal Gear Solid on Mac OS X

    hey i just realized something... i read on another forum that Cider will crash whenever it tries to load an app. well MGS always loads a License Agreement before the game loads... could this be what is crashing the game? if so how could i remove the agreement? any program codes i could edit?

    Cider for Mac OS X 10.4

    ok, i didn't really think emulating would work... oh well, I figured it was worth asking. I have the PCSX Emulator for Mac but it only runs at about 30 FPS so it is about 2x as slow OK so i was able to find a newer version of Cider that worked with OS X 10.4 anyways, somebody had already modified it for GTA 3 so i thought if i just changed the directory names i would be fine. Heres what i did: Right Click on GTA 3 (file name) > Show Package Contents Pasted Metal Gear Solid (that I took out of Program Files after installing in Windows XP) in Contents\Resources\transgaming\c_drive\Program Files\ Made the following changes in Info.plist: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleExecutable</key> <string>cider</string> <key>CFBundleGetInfoString</key> <string>GameTap 3.0.2</string> <key>CFBundleIconFile</key> <string>Icon.icns</string> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.transgaming.gametap</string> <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key> <string>1.0</string> <key>CFBundleName</key> <string>GTA III</string> <key>CFBundlePackageType</key> <string>APPL</string> <key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key> <string>0.0 Mac</string> <key>CFBundleSignature</key> <string>APPL</string> <key>CFBundleURLTypes</key> <array> <dict> <key>CFBundleTypeRole</key> <string>Viewer</string> <key>CFBundleURLName</key> <string>GameTap protocol</string> <key>CFBundleURLSchemes</key> <array> <string>gametap</string> </array> </dict> </array> <key>CFBundleVersion</key> <string>1</string> <key>CedegaGameDir</key> <string>C:\Program Files\Metal Gear Solid\</string> <key>CedegaGameName</key> <string>C:\Program Files\Metal Gear Solid\mgsi.exe</string> <key>LSEnvironment</key> <dict> <key>InsufficientRenderers</key> <dict/> <key>MinimumSystemVersion</key> <string>10.4.8</string> </dict> <key>LSMinimumSystemVersion</key> <string>10.4.8</string> <key>NSMainNibFile</key> <string>MainMenu</string> <key>NSPrincipalClass</key> <string>NSApplication</string> <key>PrefsFolderName</key> <string>GTA 3</string> </dict> </plist> And it didnt work, the icon appeared on the dock and bounced once and just stayed there. You had to go to force quit to get it to go away. Also please note that i have ran the game in Windows before because i have heard of some directories not being created if you have not run the game yet. Also here is an error log i get from running "Contents\MacOS\cider" in terminal: Last login: Thu Aug 3 22:40:26 on ttyp1 /Users/nmycon/Desktop/GTA\ 3.app/Contents/MacOS/cider; exit Welcome to Darwin! nicholas-cooks-computer:~ nmycon$ /Users/nmycon/Desktop/GTA\ 3.app/Contents/MacOS/cider; exit 2006-08-03 22:49:11.054 cider[1452] Mac OS X 10.4.9 Intel err:font:ReadFontDir Can't open directory "/Users/nmycon/Desktop/GTA 3.app/Contents/Resources/transgaming/c_drive/WINDOWS/F"... err:module:BUILTIN32_dlopen failed to load .so lib for builtin swift.dll: dlopen(libswift.dylib, 2): image not found err:ddraw:SWIFT_VP_InitSWShader swift.dll not found

    Cider for Mac OS X 10.4

    Hey I am new to the forums but have heard of Cider before. I recently completed Metal Gear Solid 4 on PS3 and am going to a wedding in Cape Cod in less than a week. I would like to take Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty with me to play (especially during the car ride). I was unable to install Windows XP on my MacBook due to the Boot Camp Assistant expiring and when I changed my clock back I still got partition errors... ...ANYWAYS... ...I decided to try to port them both to Mac OS X using Cider(MGS wouldn't work with Darwine or Crossover and I figured if you guys are porting 2006 and 2007 games I should at least be able to port 2000 and 2003 games)! But I downloaded the newest version of Cider that somebody uploaded (that came with the Spore game) but unfortunately it can only be used with Leopard. I haven't upgraded yet and am still using Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.11. Can anybody point me in the direction of the most recent Cider that can still be used with Tiger? Also, has anybody successfully ported either Metal Gear Solid or Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty to Mac? Thanks in Advance! Nick PS. This may sound a little strange but could Cider be used to port PS2 emulators to Mac (such as ePS2e) so that I would also be able to play MGS3, which was not ported to PC?
