no prob. Eight easy steps to fun times.
step1) make sure xcode is installed on your mac (type xcode into spotlight if you don't know and need to check). If it is installed move on to step three (3) otherwise grab an age-appropriate beverage to quaff for the next 20 min.
step2) insert the operating system DVD that came with your mac. open the "optional installs" folder and install xcode, drink beverage while status bar creeps
step3) open the source code folder you downloaded and find the macosx folder, then open it
step4) find the blue icon named "Pcsx.xcodeproj" and double-click it which will open the source code in xcode
step5) click the build and run button which will compile the code and open the application
step6) go to the pcsx drop down menu, open up the preferences, and uncheck the dynarec cpu option. this is enabled by default but will cause pcsx to crash
step7) load an iso or run a disc, freeze a savestate, defrost it, and see if you're still having the problem (you shouldn't)
step8) delete the old executable of pcsx (assuming everything works now) and drag the new pcsx you just compiled from the pcsx/macosx/build/development folder to your applications folder or wherever you had pcsx. if for some reason the filepath is different
on your box just find it with spotlight
step9) (optional) once you move the app where you want it drag and drop it to the dock for easy access. Happy gaming!
