Hey eveyone.

I have seen through the dozen of pages in the PCSX2 Screenshots page and its kinda hard to keep track of every game that is showing dramatic improvements. Thanks to the PCSX2 Team and Betatesters for that!

Anyhow, as I was saying its kind of hard to find out which games go in game or shows anyscreens at all... I propose that we post out the name of the game and details to which extent it works, so that it would be both easy for the viewers who wants to know which games they want to try are playable, improving and showing screens and stuff. So why don't we all sit together and write down the name, version and details of the games that work or shows improvement in this thread? It would be beneficial for the PCSX2 Team also, to view the games that are working now, instead of loading all the Screenshot pages.

Thanks

you mean make a compatability list?

this has been discussed before, and its been decided as of yet it isnt worth doing as most of the list will be "shows a couple of screens then crashes" and thatll be it. As the coding goes on, some games break when others are fixed which also causes a problem with making a list, it would mean rewriting it every release.


Its best waiting till PCSX2 is more stable :)

I like this idea.
It would be great to do a compatibility list.

I have an idea to do it, look:
We can do little files with the info on the games like--> Gran Turismo 4 Pal Sces_081.26.txt
And then write into:

GRAN TURISMO 4 PAL (language) SCES_081.26 (I don't know the number, is only a example)
BEST COINFIG(for compatibility):
Recompiler
GSDX9 0.8 Software
peops etc.

INFO: The game shows some graphics in ..........
................(how much does the game work, when it crash, how to fix, etc.)
................
................

NOTES: (Like a config that works much faster etc.)

(nickname of the author and date)

And then with all this little files we can do a large database with all the games.
But is only an idea.......

  • The compatibility will continously change.
  • There is no 'best' setup per-say, as the best is always INT / SPU2null / GSsoft
  • 95% of games will be 'blank screen'.
  • The team keep a 'kind-of' on going compatibility list, which changes per-beta, and compatibility can change for alot of games even within one hour.
  • Public compatibility has never been particulary accurate, especially with so many options. Heck most people can barely cope with the concept of 'AAAA_###.##' codes ;)
  • Compatibility would be useless, unless you have INSANELY powerfull machines, as no game is truly 'playable' at these speeds ;)

OK,I'll post the second.

Final Fantasy X(German SCES-50492)
Using PCSX2 0.8.1 SSE2 + GSDX 0.8 +Vurecs
It crashs in the mittel of Intro, the Terrain ist totally lost, can reach the Menu, but you can not load a new Game.
You can load a saved Game in oder to get into ingame.
Using PCSX2 0.8.1 SSE2 + GSDX 0.8 +Recomplier
There is no problem with Intro, others are same as VuRecs, but much slower.
Using PCSX2 0.9 Beta + GSDX 0.8 +Vurecs
You can see a part of the Terrain but it crashs at the same point as PCSX2 0.8
Using PCSX2 0.9 Beta + GSDX 0.8 + Recomplier
It's the same as 0.8 with Recomplier but with Terrain. Some of the character texture is lost.

Nobody has expected that, Games would playable.
I think Otrivin means, that we show the progresses of PCSX2 to the public.

Guys you all got it all wrong. I was just saying to start a thread and list down the title of the games in that thread> (Not to make the PCSX2 Team write a log of games that work with the readme's and other files).

I was just saying that we write down the title, which shows screens, playable, improving ones HERE on this THREAD. It is really hard for some people getting online with a 56KBPS Modem and line to wait for all the pictures to load in the Screenshots Thread. My notion is to make this thread to post the games shows screens, playable, improving here....

FOR EXAMPLE WE WRITE ON THIS THREAD :

X Game
Works / Shows Screens / Improved
Using specs

Just that... Not a whole compaitability list.. This thread would be the list...

And thinking that it is not worthwhile can be proved wrong by those guys who uses a 56KBPS. I know how hard it is. (I once used a 56K and know how it feels like ok...?)

I think it would be better to see this thread not as a compatibility list but as an update on the development of PCSX2! I'm sure that beta testers don'y have all the games and all the time available like they probably wanted to!

This way the "normal" testers could also give their feedback on using the emulator! Like saying: "I've managed to get ingame on game X!" or "With this configuration I got on the menu screen!". Stuff like that! Of course that the machine specs and PCSX2 configuration is also an important part of it!

I hate making waves, but I have to say it would be interesting if an unofficial compatability database was contructed. Whats the point in following a developping emulator if you can't discuss, compare and contribute to the scene? I would like to see this database made and a happy mob of people following it.

Emulator is not completed yet ; so this is just waste of your times

Hihi you're right.

But in fact for some people it's pleasant to waste of they time with emulation.

:D :dance: :lol:
