PCSX2 0.9.2 - The Revenge!

PCSX2 0.9.2 R2 is now available

This fixes an assortment of issues found briefly after 0.9.2's original launch. It is strongly advised that people get this build of 0.9.2 over the initial release.

  • Compatibility regression with Vampire Night resolved.
  • Final Fantasy X now works for most regions.
  • Fixes Crash when using config>patches
  • Frame Limiting is now more accurate.
  • Improved zeroGS, Disgaea 2 menus are now solid.
  • P.E.Op.S SPU2 updated to include threaded mode (useful for video recording).
  • Screen Saver / Power Saving now disabled when running PCSX2.


Just to cure our collective headaches "warnings about default.xml" being blank, or "patches not found", are merely information, they do not in any way effect PCSX2's compatibility or performance.

If the config>patches crash problem persists, grab the updated exe's here.

We are releasing via torrent and http, please seed for as long as possible with the torrents, we recommend uTorrent as a client!

The 81FC0 is Over!

PCSX2 0.9.2 is here!

This release brings several important changes to PCSX2, enhancing compatibility and adding several new aspects to the emulator.

  • ADMA has been added to PCSX2, most (if not all) game videos will playback audio, many games now have their music and speech effects. Unlike some, we think games need sound.
  • Counter fixes stopping games hitting long pause syndrome, or crashing.
  • Enhanced MTGS / DC stability, great for those with Dual Core CPUs.
  • IPU improvements, more game videos will now run.
  • VIF fixes, allowing for many games to run or look better.
  • VUrec fixes, improving ingame graphics when under VU recompilation

Also included with this release is the new Patch Browser and Patch Finder, the patch browser, allows you to search memory with the tools and functions you would be used to with a cheat searcher.

The Patch Browser will allow you to enable and disable parts of the patch during gameplay, e.g. enabling Infinite Lives etc!

HOWEVER!! - These features are not completed yet, enumerator's and other features are not present, and the patch browser lacks functionality! You can still use the patch finder, and an example XML file with notes is included with this release (in the root dir of PCSX2), and the new format XML files can be used by PCSX2!

PCSX2 0.9.2 also comes with a new zeroGS plugin, which increases graphical support for several games and fixes some of the bugs found in the previous version(s).

We're going to save ourselves some hassle next! We're aware many people want to play Final Fantasy X on PCSX2, as you maybe aware the game is now fully playable, however we would like to make two very important notes:

  • PEOPS CDVD plugin must be used!
  • MTGS can cause some crashes, they are rare, but if the game crashes, switch to single core mode for awhile!

We are releasing via torrent initially, please seed for as long as possible, we recommend uTorrent as a client! Direct download from the site will be available once initial flood has hit!

Enjoy this release!

Touche Toupee!

To celebrate the upcoming PCSX2 0.9.2 release we have recorded a 7 minute 38 second long video of Tekken 4's arcade mode being completed with Nina!

Head over to the Downloads>Videos section to grab it or click here!

PCSX2 0.9.2 will add increased compatibility, improved graphics for many games, improved MTGS stability and an abundance of features that you'll get to see in the future.

For now bask in some Tekken 4 action and note the fighting wigs (ahar now you get the title) are no longer present - as zeroGS has also had it's fair share of improvements!

A little Fix Here, Alittle Fix There...Vvvroom!

Refraction has been 'abit' busy! Razz He's been 'in the zone' for the past few nights fixing VIF Unpacks, which decompress then send texture and vector data to the VUs.

Such fixes have a wide impact on games, some initial results below:
Clocktower 3 - SPS (Spikey Polygon Syndrome) fixed!
Grandia III - Random crash fixed!
Sega Rally 2006 - SPS fixed!
Super Monkey Ball - Graphics looking 'significantly' improved!
X-Men Legends - Graphics completely fixed!

Oh and for racing fans, there is one other game showing significant progress Very Happy ...

Sound, everywhere!

In the Good News for 0.9.2! post, made on 16th August, Refraction hinted at progress being made with the audio side of PCSX2, as many of you will of guessed - the clip posted was from Final Fantasy X, more importantly from an FMV, which in all previous versions of PCSX2 had no audio (99% of the time).

To elaborate on this further; GiGaHeRz and Saqib have fixed large portions of ADMA support, allowing for all videos to have audio and many games now have full background music!

A little work has been done by Saqib today which allows for audio and video sync when recording, so I can demonstrate with a small video (xVid) - the results of their hard work.
