SpeedofMac.com has moved to ConsoleEmu.com, where you can find latest builds of PCSXR and more!



This is the home of SpeedofMac.com's download & installation instructions for popular console emulators:

Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) / Famicom

Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) / Super Famicom

Nintendo 64 (N64)

Gamecube (GC) & Wii

PlayStation (PS1)

PlayStation 2 (PS2)

PlayStation Portable (PSP)



For the best experience, I recommend using a PlayStation3-type gamepad when using these emulators. Why?

  • PS3 controllers are USB or Bluetooth, both of which work on your Mac without any extra adapters
  • PS3 controllers have a similar layout to a SNES controller (but with a few extra buttons and analog sticks), making it feel like a pretty natural SNES experience
  • PS3 controllers can easily be used as an NES gamepad, and it's more comfortalble, to boot
  • With some set-up, a PS3 controller makes a decent substitute for a N64 controller. Here's how I do it (N64 buttons -> PS3 buttons):
    • Analog stick -> left analog stick
    • D-pad -> D-pad
    • A & B -> Cross & Square
    • Start -> Start (no surprises there!)
    • Z -> L2
    • R & L: R1 & L1
    • Left & Right C -> Triangle & Circle
      • This keeps Left & Right C close to their original positions
    • Up & Down C -> right analog up & down
      • I found that if I mapped all four C buttons to the right analog stick, it was too easy to make mistakes
