Additional Comments

It's really more gold (almost platinum), but because you need to do just a tiny bit of futzig I guess it's Silver? Be sure to install dotnet20 and d3dx9 using winetricks before playing! Also, it has issues with reading relative directories. I put it in /Applications/pSX, but it wanted to save things, by default, in my home directory. To remedy this: edit psx.ini and change all the paths to absolute. Example: SaveStatePath=saves gets changed to SaveStatePath=Z:\Applications\pSX\saves. MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE THE BIOS, PATHS, and CARDS ENTRIES TO ABSOLUTE PATHS! Another option is to use the pSX Frontend (available on the pSX forums), which properly sets all the paths when you open it up. At first, it ran at super speed (fast forward). To make this NOT happen, disable vertical sync in both full screen and windowed mode.
