Bleem was good years ago, and still fast, but ePSXe and PSXeven are superior in terms of compatibility, speed and picture quality. Bleem is nothing but a relic anymore, and impossible to get full version in legal ways. Use ePSXe or PSXeven, whichever you find easier to work with, and use it with Pete's and PEOPS plugins.

basically, the plugin-based emus are slightly more of a hassle to set up, but they return so much more ;)

Kinda like a good love relationship ;)

Bleem when it had come out was probably the best and most compatible of any emulator... If it had stayed a little longer and went freeware it would have really killed epsxe...

I wouldn't say I agree...

Yup, Bleem was an outstanding emulator that time... I would say it is WAY faster then ePSXe in some games (Chrono Cross but glitchy, Tekken 3 sound skips) well atleast on my system :p (Athlon XP 1800+). Too bad they had to comercialized it It really would have kicked PSEMUPRO plugin based emus asses!

yes.
there was a free beta/demo I think, but even at that time it was known to go commercial.

some time ago there were rumours about a XP patch (unofficial of course). I guess that never happened, right?

Well if you have a CD key from a version you purchased i'm sure you could get the updates from the internet still. But IMHO ePSXe is better - more compatible anyways.

well, in a way. nowadays, it's extremely outdated. however, for crappy computers, it offers decent emulation that PSemupro style emus cant beat. but for modern computers (and we're talking like Pentium3 and Geforce 2 modern here :p ) ePSXe, PSXeven, PCSX,etc, are all better choices than Bleem.

i cant see why bleem! has been discontinued even after it was successful and offered good emulation
They were basically sued out of existence. They won every court case, but just ran out of money in the end.

well in a sense the manufacturers in this case sony may have had a right to sue because after all it is a bit like pirated hardware what bleem did.

BTW did bleem require a psx bois?

How the hell can you pirate hardware? Copyright exists for intellectual property protection purposes. Things like works of art, literature, and software are covered under copyright. That's why the BIOS is covered and if you were familiar with copyright law, you'd understand that it's completely legal to write a piece of software that mimics the functionality of another as long as all code used to write said software is original (non copied).

Sony didn't even design the R3000 processor used in the Playstation. It's a slightly modified general purpose CPU produced by SGI. http://sgistuff.g-lenerz.de/hardware/processors.html#r3000

Bleem used an HLE bios similar to PCSX.

no need to get upset flare85, i didn't mean copyright hardware in the literal sense. I meant that by emulating the hardware it was slowly giving people a better alternative to the psx which sony worked on to make, so in that sense they deserve to be upset over what bleem was doing.

THough there tactics where unscrupulous

Game system manufacturers make their money through the sale of games. Usually money is lost on the consoles.
