How to Play PSX Games on OS X with PCSXR : Testing Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4

We wanna show you how to playing PSX games which you played on Sony Playstation console in OSX. There's an emulator app called PCSXR which can be used to open mostly PS one games.
This app require OS X Lion 10.7 or later. It can also support usb joystick that can be set on its preferences. You need PCSXR application, BIOS files, and iso or img file of Playstation game which you want to play.

So you should use the BIOS files.

Go to Applications support and find PCSXR folder, then go to BIOS.

After that, copy all BIOS files that you've download before and paste here.
