Hi, it is sick that I can even run playstation games on my mac, but there are some problems in the beginning of FM3 on the Wanzer Testing Site part of the game.  The crash only happens in the attack sequence, (after you choose the attack command) during battles.


This is what I'm on:

Model: MacBook3,1, BootROM MB31.008E.B02, 2 processors, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.2 GHz, 2 GBGraphics: kHW_IntelGMA965Item, GMA X3100, spdisplays_builtin, 144 MB

... And I didn't really know what I was looking at but I do have some info from the crash report:



Process:         PCSX [23751]
Path:            /Applications/
Identifier:      com.codeplex.pcsxr
Version:         PCSX-Reloaded (1.9.92)
Code Type:       X86 (Native)
Parent Process:  launchd [174]

Exception Type:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGBUS)
Exception Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x0000000000000034
Crashed Thread:  7


So I went down to Thread 7 and got this:


Thread 7 Crashed:
0   com.codeplex.pcsxr            	0x0002f4d9 hleExecRet + 41
1          	0x9289b9a4 __NSThread__main__ + 308
2   libSystem.B.dylib             	0x90cc9155 _pthread_start + 321
3   libSystem.B.dylib             	0x90cc9012 thread_start + 34


I have more info if needed(crash report)  but thought this might help. Help would be greatly appreciated.

When I used that one, I got those video screen lines and a other little distortion on the screen, so I switched back to the old version.

(I've since found the Freeze and Defrost options.)

I tried duplicating some plugins and resources from the old one into the new but still the same.  

Thanx for the heads up, though. I would love to learn how to fix this stuff myself, instead of throwing shots in the dark. Any suggestions on how I could learn?
