The coding team and staff of PCSX2 wish you a Happy New Year, filled with happiness, health and new hardware! Razz

Due to the holidays and some team members having a life ™ development has slowed down a bit but work towards the next release is already being done Smile We can't promise any dates but let's just say that the team will do their best to bring you the next 0.9.8 release as fast as possible (which means the todo list is done, whenever that is!).

Finally, a big thank you to the people who have donated for the project, we don't say this often and we should Smile


Tomorrow (12/11/2010) we will move the site to another server.
The current server will be taken down in the morning (CET). This means that the portal and forums will be offline.

If no problems occur, the site should be back online at the end of the day (CET). Because we are switching servers, we will also need to update the DNS entries. It might take some time before these resolve correctly.

EDIT: 02:00 PM / CET
We should be back online, in case your DNS server has not been updated yet you can add the following entries to your hosts file:


I finally got around updating the now (huge) configuration guide for the new beta version of PCSX2 v0.9.7!
You can read it here.

As usual, we would love to have as many translations as possible, so if you are up to it, please apply here.

We also revamped our video section with 11 new gameplay videos using 0.9.7 courtesy of yours truly, Shadow Lady, Rudy_X and rama. The downloads are available via torrents (click the download button on the right) which you can grab from our videos section here. As usual please help us seed as much as possible!
We will also consider accepting user created videos to host them on our torrent tracker in the future Smile

That's all for now!


Our server will be under maintenance, so we can reorganize the way it is set up, upgrade our OS and fix stuff here and there Smile
We hope downtime will only be for tomorrow October 18th and the day after, the 19th but these things have a habit of going horribly wrong so no promises!
Note that this includes our forum.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but we hope the changes will make the site and forums faster and more efficient Smile

Falc: Website and forums should be up and running! There might still be minor issues, don't forget to report them in:


Hey people,
today we make the second 0.9.7 beta release available: PCSX2 0.9.7 (r3878)!

The 0.9.7 series is marked as unstable/beta, meaning it still has some known bugs
and unimplemented features but it is fully supported by the PCSX2 team.
We've spent the last months on various aspects of the emulator, adding to the awesome progress seen in beta 1.
This release has been compiled with extensive optimizations, so you can expect a small speedup over r3113 Smile

Here's some of the changes:

  • Gui work: threading, layout and stability have been improved.
  • Some of the reported .ini writing issues should be fixed now.
  • Game database: bug fixes, more entries, compatibility hints for pcsx2.
  • Automated patching enabled now: known fixes/settings for some games can be enabled automatically.
  • Emulation fixes to microVU.
  • VIF/GIF work: Slightly faster and more compatible.
  • Much work on GIFPath ordering issues. many games with previously flickering textures should work better.
  • IPU retooled and optimized: A bit faster, a bit more compatible and much more sane (no more coroutines).
  • Removed hazardous MMX/XMMregister freeze/restore. Speedup and stability is improved.
  • Savestates are now free of memory leaks.
  • Disk swapping works on a few games now (not all yet though).
  • New "fast CDVD" speedhack. Load levels as fast as possible!
  • Console logging is now configurable to be as verbose as in developer builds.
  • Commandline support.
  • A lot of other small tweaks and additions.

We again provide 3 versions. A full installer, a web installer and a binary package.
