This weekend (31 May) we will be performing maintenance to our dedicated server. The server will be taken down at 01:00 CET.

Scheduled tasks:
- Fixing stability issues with the http deamon
- Upgrading the operating system to Ubuntu 8.04

If no problems occur the server should be back online at 12:00 CET.

- Falc.

[11:00] Upgrade completed


I'm (ab)using the's news system to let everyone know I (finally) got my lazy ass to make some improvements in my sound plugin.

The result is spu2ghz 1.8, which you can find in the official thread in our forums.

I will keep working on the SPDIF decoding, and hopefully someday I will manage to get working AC3/DTS playback.

EDIT: I uploaded the file also to's file release system for anyone who can't access the forums, or doesn't want to register in them.


Hey everyone,this isn't anything exciting but I just wanted to let you know.
Our download section has finally been brought up to date with all the updated versions of the GS and Pad plugins which are under development.
Also,some outdated and useless files have been removed to prevent confusion.
I've also updated our sourceforge page ( with the current info (it was last updated about 3 years ago!),added some screenshots and both FAQ - readme docs in the documentation section.

In other (more interesting for you) news,development is going good as you're able to see from the frequent SVN updates,with Refraction making the usual core changes,with a recent one giving a huge speed boost in some games (albeit breaking some,still trying to figure out what to do with that).
Saqib is also working on something behind the scenes,wait and see when it's done Wink


I tried to think of a flashy title for this, but i couldn't, so I thought I'd just blurt it out!

Yes the IPU (video side of PCSX2) has been updated by none other than Saqib! You might be asking what this will bring to the table? Well im sure as many of you know, videos in PCSX2 suffered from Macroblocking (Corrupt squares appearing all over the place) or videos freezing randomly. Well thanks to Saqib for his marvelous work, many games no longer suffer from these symptoms. Here is a quick rundown of some of the games fixed.

Atelier Iris - Grand Phantasm
Ayumi Hamasaki - A Visual Mix
Graffiti Kingdom
Many Growlanser games
Monster Hunter
Resident Evil 4
Simple Series Videos
Soul Calibur 3
The Simpsons
Many more!

In light of these changes a lot of games have been improved to a playable status or had their stability increased!

The code is in SVN, do NOT ask for help on the forums. If you guys are lucky, i might be nice enough to compile a new beta very soon Wink

Discussion of whats fixed can be found on the Official forums



Im sure most of you have noticed recently the site has been slow, full of SQL errors and lord knows what.

Well we noticed too! So we have now moved on to a nice new dedicated server, which should have less trouble handling the load (and give some breathing space). You might notice a couple of small problems for a few days as we iron things out but most things should be fully functional. Its not cheap (about $160 USD per month) so any help via the donation button at the bottom of the page would be appreciated!

Sorry for the inconvenience caused and i hope everything is much better for you all from here on in! A big thank you to Falcon4ever for working so hard to get everything across. You've done a marvelous job.
