yo guys, lately I've really had the urge to play FFVII and was wondering if anyone knew if there's any way to play it on my mac?

not as far as I know. There's emulators of course but FF games seem to have issues with them.
Been in Japan since August, no fucking money left!

If you have a PS3 you can download it from the PSN store at a fair price.

Install a copy of Boot Camp on your Mac and then buy the PC version of FFVII.


This. There are currently no functioning PS1 emulators for Macs, unless you're running with OS9, or something to that effect. This was at least the case about 6 months ago, when I tried figuring out the same thing during the summer vacation.

Of course, there's the whole 'buying a 1$ PS1 at a yard sale and hunting down a copy of FFVII' option, but that can be a somewhat long shot

MushroomEDIT: Hold on, after some searching I think I might've found an emulator. Let's hope it supports Snow Leopard...

The cheapest I've found VII for is $70 at a used bookstore

Or buy a $1 PS1 at a yard sale and mod it and just play the "backup"

$70 WTF, it's like $10-$20 here, it's not particularly rare (it was one of the killer apps for the PS1 and damn near everyone that owned a playstation had a copy) and the digital download is $10.

I just found an emulator that *might* work. Of course, downloading the FFVII ROMs take freaking ages

Repeated for clarity.

This is honestly the best thing you can do with a Mac. It also stops people from laughing at you because you have one.

I can tell you pretty much flat out that an there isn't an emulator that runs FFVII without glitching, and no one really bothers to fix it since theres a PC version of FFVII available anyway.

That's what every single internet forum tells me, I'm just really stubborn

I'd use the family computer, but it doesn't have any sound

thanks guys going to give bootcamp a try. I still have my ps1 and copy of ffvii but at my mum's place which is quite a while away. I didn't think there was a stable ps1 emulator for osx but if anyone knows one let me know.

If you get bootcamp to work don't bother with emulators, just find the PC version of FFVII it will work much better.

Yes there are. I've used one, oddly enough, to play FFVII on a Mac. Controller didn't work worth a shit, though.
