Since the release of 0.9 the developers have worked hard to improve PCSX2. Looking at the progress zerofrog is making, the future looks very promising.
But there is more! Keith from the emulation64 network invited one of our developers, Refraction, for a spotlight interview.
Q : Could you give us some information regarding the current state of your projects?
A : Well PCSX2 is going well, we have started to focus a bit more on speed as quite a few games are now working in comparison to older versions, but we are still bug finding, slowly trying to get in the bits we have missed and rewriting parts that are completely bugged

With 100,000 unique visitors having visited this site in it's short time online (13 days), both myself and Falcon4ever are happy it's gone so smoothly.
So a video of Makai Kingdom in action has been recorded for you lot to download and enjoy, including audio (speech, music, sound effects).
So you are thinking woopiee a video, wow, that's shocking... , well hold that thought, what if I told you that the video only had to be sped up by about 10 FPS to get to 60 FPS, e.g. what you see is practically what it's emulated at!
What?!! near full speed emulation?!! impossible I hear you cry, well I did tell you that zerofrog was re-writing the eeREC and vuREC There's a lot to do, as in all honesty many games got broken with bugs during the transition from the old rec, to the new, but he's still not blinking, and he is avoiding sleep, so hopefully more news eventually!
Enough of that for now, enjoy the video, which you can grab on this page (click the 'DOWNLOAD' image to the right of the details ).

We're back!! Over the past three weeks you may of noticed that this site was nothing more than some panties with a BBL sign (didn't saqib's body look hawt ) or a daft reference to PCSX3!
Well the old site was horribly broken and had a variety of flaws, so myself and the hardworking Falcon4ever ripped the site down to give you this new one! Voila! We hope you like.
A variety of new features and improvements have been impl4mented, I shall just list a few:
- Compat list is paginated - reducing load, makes browsing faster to!
- Compat list is searchable!
- Greatly reduced load times
- No framesets - We all hated them, now they're no more!
- No Popups - No security warnings, flashier to behold, and neater.
- Clearer navigation, with multi tier menus, plain text navigation for easy translation!
One key feature is the return of the Donate button
The site has full Firefox support, however there are some 'minor' flaws with IE at present (just making IE6 actually comply was fun enough!), which will be sorted very soon.
Be sure you check out Downloads>Videos for two new videos, and check there regularly for new footage!
We now also have a working screenshots system on the sites Backend, we shall be running a mini competition on the forums for everyone to submit their 'sexiest' screenshot, the best shots will go into the sites screenshot section, with your name immortalized More info on that soon.
Finally a massive thanks to the testing team, the devs and poor old Falcon4ever, whom I nagged to death day and night!

Yes folks PCSX2 0.9 is here, by no means gracefully, but it is here!
You can now enjoy PCSX2 0.9 a faster and more compatible PS2 emulator, it's been a year since 0.8.1 was released so you will see many dramatic changes!
Many games are now going ingame, and some are even playable (check out games like Disgaea, or Silent Hill 4!)
On behalf of all the team I would like to say a big HELLO to linuzappz, and a large thank you for everything he's done for us prior to him leaving the team!
Given the site troubles over the past 24 hours, I can assure you that myself and several devs right now are totally bald from ripping our hair out!
Thus the download is being hosted off site, and some aspects of the site may still be broken, we're working on this, but please give us some time!
NOTE: There will be no Linux build for a good few weeks! so apologies to all linux users!
NOTE: PLEASE READ THE HELP FILE BEFORE RUNNING PCSX2!
IF YOU DOWNLOADED BEFORE 03/04/06 13:15 GMT PLEASE REDOWNLOAD
Until the site is working properly again we cannot host it locally, so use either of these 2 mirrors:
