PCSX2 - KOSMOS: ZeroGS Evolves

Posted on PCSX2.net, the official site of PCSX2 a PlayStation 2 emulator:


Final Fantasy X: 35-128 FPS
Grandia 3: 37-60 FPS

...Yes you read that correctly, and no it's not April 1st!

WAIT!!..Okay so you knew there would be a catch :P

MTGS (Multi Threaded GS) has recently become much more stable thanks to zerofrog and his recent improvements to zeroGS (a GS plugin for PCSX2). MTGS allows for people with Dual Core CPU's to run PCSX2 at significantly improved speeds by putting the graphics side of PCSX2 onto a seperate core.

zeroGS itself has also gone through a major overhaul, making it significantly faster, even without the use of MTGS, so the Single Core crowd will also see a speed boost via this plugin!

zeroGS offers more features in the up coming release, with improved AA, wireframe mode, video recording, bilinear filtering and pre-defined resolutions to choose from.

So whats the catch? Well zeroGS requires Pixel Shader 2.0, so you need a graphics card capable of this shader model (I recommend the GeForce 6600GT for budget users).

The other catch is somewhat obvious, you will need a Dual Core CPU to support MTGS mode, eg; AMD X2's, Opterons and of course the new Conroe.

So when does this new zeroGS come out? Well for now no ETA, and please don't be nagging us about it!

Enough of the text, lets move onto my favourite section - eyecandy!

The shots where taken on the following spec machine:

     Opteron 165 1.8Ghz @ 2.5Ghz (9x280)
     1Gb DDR550 Dual Channel @ DDR560
     Gainward BLISS 7900 GTX 512Mb
     SoundBlaster Audigy 4

Note FPS is reduced by ~50% in these shots because they where taken with Bilinear Filtering, and 4xAA enabled:

SnezziDS v0.24b released

Thanks again, Gladius.


Hacked together the new sound sync. mechanism tonight and it appears to work great! SMW now has nearly perfect sound (insofar as I still haven't emulated echo effects on the arm7) and a bunch of other games are sounding much, much better.

As an added benefit, the cores are really tightly synced, so compatibility should go up as well. Yay Smile.

v0.24b is now up.

PCSX2 - WIP

PCSX2 a PlayStation 2 emulator, is as ever getting constant development, recent WIP has been posted on the official site:




Work has never stopped since the release of PCSX2 0.9.1, infact it rarely does :)

Refraction has made significant fixes to counters, making games much more stable, for instance Final Fantasy X-2 is now stable enough to be classed as "playable". Disgaea will play story scenes without freezing, and Resident Evil 4 is much more stable during gameplay!

Saqib, has been bustling away with IPU, more and more games are playing videos, without looping or crashing mid-way through playback, effecting games such as Grand Theft Auto III, Final Fantasy X and WipEout Fusion.

Zerofrog, busy as ever has been fixing vuREC0/1 issues, and making those games that do go 'Ingame' look correct, including Rayman M, Silent Hill 2, and a personal favourite WipEout Fusion.

Saqibs IPU fixes combined with ZeroFrogs work on the graphical issues (I bugged him to death about this game :P ) have made WipEout Fusion playable! So head to the Videos section to watch this game for the first time running brilliantly on PCSX2, also checkout the recent Final Fantasy X-2 Video.

PSPVBA 1.0.6 Released

ZX-81 has released a new version of his GBA Emulator for the PSP, heres whats new:

What's new in version 1.0.6 :

- Add screen resize option (Ymin/Ymax) to reduce the size of the screen and then speed up the emulation.
This can be usefull in car games such as V-rally 3, when we don't care to see the sky or not .
It's simple but we can hope to win up to 5% on CPU speed.

- Press Start+Select to return to the emulator menu (whatever the key mapping you have set).
This feature is to overcome the issue some of you encountered, when they couldn't go back in the emulator
menu because the key they had assigned to the menu didn't respond .

- (re) Add the save battery feature (already available in the original VBA source code), but i haven't tested it so far .

PSPVBA 1.0.5 Released


- New turbo modes (more speed and less graphic artefacts)
- Add SFX enable/disable option (can be used to increase speed)
- Fix in BMP screenshots (no more need to flip the image)
- Improve a bit the sound quality (the "ARM tick" can be changed to prevent sound distorsion)
- The SELECT key is now available for user keyboard mapping (but don't forget to map a psp key to enter in the emulator MENU !)
- File requester use now two directories for keyboard and rom files
- Fix the bug that made games like Pokemon Fire to crash

This should be the last release for 2.x FW (only if major bugs are found) :
- In my option this version is usable for many games, with acceptable performances
- I will downgrade to 1.5FW soon and may be try to use kernel mode to improve the speed a bit more.

PCSX2 0.9.1 Released

PCSX2 a popular PlayStation 2 emulator has just been updated to version 0.9.1, this release of PCSX2 offers a significant speed increase over the previous version and further adds to it's compatibility.




This release brings a significant speed increase to the majority of games, this is due to a complete rewrite of the EE and VU recompilers. Various other improvements have increased compatibility with games, you will be able to check your game against the included compatibility list, which lists nearly 1000 titles (Please note at time of release list is not guaranteed 100% accurate).

Whilst the new recompilers are a major improvement, the recompilers are not 100% accurate at present, this may result in a number of broken games.

A further release will be created in the future enhancing upon the overall compatibility of the new recompilers. This is part of a new release schedule, where we plan to be releasing more frequently; however, do not make requests for releases or ask when such a release will be produced.

As ever we have opened a 'screenshots' thread for you to post in, and the forums are there for you to discuss the project and ask questions.

You will also be aware that the Hot Shots Contest started earlier this month. Given the lack of entries sofar, we are extending the contest deadline until the 15th July 2006, you may enter shots from PCSX2 0.9.1 (recommended) or 0.9, those of you who have already entered are allowed to update your posts with new submissions if you wish.

Hopefully people are more imaginative, and post less Final Fantasy shots ;)
