PS2Launcher Build 883 - a tool for PCSX2 settings management.

Author: Mutronics (???????? ??????? Mutronics)

Basic actions:
Entries creation:
Just run PCSX2 and set it up for your favorite game. After that run PS2 launcher and create a new entry for your game. All current PCSX2 settings will be copied for that entry and saved in the DB. Pressing START will restore current settings from selected profile and run PCSX2.

Profile editing:
Choose profile and press "Edit". You can change profile name and replace profile settings with current PCSX2 settings. Uncheck "Replace profile config. by current PCSX2 configuration" if you do not want to change profile configuration.

Extract all files into your PCSX2 root dir (where is PCSX2.exe located)

Lite version of PS2 Launcher r883 (without CF):
-> <N/A>
Full version of PS2 Launcher r883 (with CF):
-> <Download>
"Fixed" english language file:
-> <Download> (included into latest rev package)

Custom features (hacks):
Special custom features available only in latest revs (710-76x) and currently there is only one feature. It allows you to specify "skip" value for modified GSdx version. This value can be used for GoW2/tri-Ace games to remove some annoying bugs, like WallofFog/ghosting in GoW2 or ghosting in Radiata Stories. Note that it works only with modified GSdx plugins (included in Full version), I will separate links for clean PS2 Launcehr and for pack with modified GSdx plugins.
Also, see P.P.P.S.

Sorry to revive this old thread but ....

I tried connecting my ps2 slim to the component connection on my monitor but the image quality is too bad. (pity cos i bought the monitor hoping i could use it that way, its an HP LP2475W)

So i ripped all my games to ISO's to play them in PCSX2 but i got a problem with the PS2 launcher program.

When i configure the title i want to play i then select ISO file , bios etc ... got everything configured but when i launcht the gae through the PS2 Launcher it sais : Unknown option "Bootmode". It then proceeds to give me a list of "switches" but i can't see bootmode in it.

What did i do wrong or isnt it compatible with version 0.9.7 ?

I've got about 30 games and its too hard to continually switch configurations :(

That launcher most likely wont work because on the official beta of pcsx2(r3119) the command line options are still not added(they are already added on the newest beta but not on the official one).

Initially that launcher was maded for the old gui of pcxs2 and there are TONS of changes between the old gui and the new one,so problems like those are not something strange.
