Ok so after several hours of searching and reading i have been able to answer what i believe should be a relatively simple question.

How does one install Media Vp's on a Macintosh. I am constantly seeing to just put it the Freespace 2 directory but exactly where does one put this on the mac. I have found a FS_2 Folder in my user library but have been unable to yield any results at this time by putting the Media Vp files into a user created Media Vp folder in the afore mentioned folder.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

create a new folder "mediavps" in your Freespace2 folder (where your FS2_open application is).

Download the mediavps 3.6.10beta and extract them info your  "mediavps" folder,51229.0.html

Download the latest build for MacOSX here,50959.msg1030014.html#msg1030014

but use the "window" mode option if you are on a intel Mac and or 10.5.x,50959.msg1043911.html#msg1043911

you have the recent xt-build you need the shader.vp?


then add -mod mediavps to your cmdline_fso.cfg in (your home folder)/Library/FS2_Open/data  if you play FS2

or -mod fsport,mediavps if you play fsport or change it for other campaigns

You probably should check out SoulStorm's Mac version of the launcher as it should make setting things up much easier.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

it isn't Leopard - it is the graphics driver for the ATI card(s)

the X1600 is ok in windowed mode with XT12-08 in X 10.5.1 (but the normal maps are not working)
my G5 7800GT works without any problems, in 10.4.11

i do not know how other ATI cards or Nvidia cards work in intel macs..

imho is Apple losing sight of MacOS X, in favor of the iphone/ipod stuff and games are "ported" with this "cider emulation"  :(
