basically my hard drive is preventing me from running it. ive since then uninstalled it. i cant remember the exact message the system reported to me but it said something about hard drive compression i believe. i was wonderin if this was a compatibility issue with windows7 or is it that i didnt install the upgrade on a new partition?

O.K...right off the gate I must say that I am a COMPLETE noob when it comes to PSX2.
It seems that no matter what I do I'm get the same type of error...GS plugin failed to load. No matter what I do...completely dead. Here's the REAL sad part...I have like the latest and greatest (not to bragg or anything) laptop out there. It's a Genuine AMD x2 running with an ATI Radeon, 3GB RAM, and like about 200GB HD Space!!! It's sad to see everyone reporting that Windows 7 is getting along great with the PSX2 emu and I can't even get ONE gameplay in?!?! Sorry, but like WT*!!!

Oh...almost forgot to mention that I've even tried all know permission workarounds out there right now. I even went as far as putting the whole PSX2 directory right in my own games folder for my user profile!!! I must be missing something BIG and/or PSX2 is a bit rougher to handle than the average emu.
O.K...maybe I wasn't specifying my system enough for everyone.
Here's a more technical and specific approach. PLS let me know if I could provide anything else to anyone that's not included herein. Thnx :innocent: conclusing as it stands right now I'm still crashing and burning with that same fatal error at the end saying that the GS failed to initialize/load.
I attached all the jpeg files with this message that hopefully will help out.
I had that issue, needed to run directx runtime that will update the graphics card up to dx11
Been there, did this...thanks for the help though.:thumb:

Re-ran directx setup and then uninstalled all of PCSX2.
Installed, configured, and I now have NO problems.
BTW for all who doesn't think AMD CPUs are good, my lowest score on the Windows Experience Index is a 4. :lol: I knew my system had what it takes!
But you all were very helpful and I still would be suffering if it wasn't for all the help I got from thx alot! :thumb:
My favorite one I love playing is ROCKY LEGENDS (AKA ROCKY2)
For the ones who are in's some proof for ya.
I think my main issue was to configure the GS Plugin for SSE2 DirectX10 Hardware and do a x2 speed hack option. Running GREAT and beating the highest scores! :D (I thought maybe I was dream'n at first...ya know from all that sleep deprivation that I've undergone for about a week now):heh:
If anyone has any ?'s or if I could be of some help...feel free to let me know as I am the type who likes to give back when I get.
