also GT2 and CTR are fixed. you can configure an analog controller to the second controller. it doesnt have that "restart ePSXe for changes" dialog (that hasnt been needed for a long time, you dont have to restart ePSXe even in 1.5.2). there are a lot of small bugfixes, changes, etc.
like i've said many times, keep more than one emulator on hand at all times. if it doesnt work in something, try a different emulator. we've been blessed with so many different types of emulators, something is bound to work
