Pcsx is a PSX emulator. What that really means? It means that it emulates the
way that a PSX works and tries to translate PSX machine language to PC language.
That is very hard to be done and we can\\\\\\\'t speak for 100 success in any time.
The hardware would always be better than the software so if you wanna play games
then better get a real PSX. Pcsx is capable to run most of the games, but a few
others still don\\\\\\\'t. We are working on it :wink:. The members of the team are very
advanced coders and they will continue the work on the Pcsx as far as they have
enough time to work on it. Real life comes first and sometimes it is much more
1) Put a bios on bios directory (recommended: scph1001.bin) (optional)
2) Put plugins in plugin directory
3) Open the emu
4) Configure plugins from configuration menu and Memcards from Mcd Manager
6) Put a cd in your cdrom drive
7) Press Run CD and the game might work ;P

* Disable Xa Decoding:
Disables xa sound, if you don\\\\\\\'t want sound this might
speed up a little movies (mostly) and the game itself.
* Sio Irq Always Enabled:
Enable this only when pads or memcards doesn\\\\\\\'t works,
but usually brokes compatibility with them.
* Spu Irq Always Enabled:
May help your game to work, but usually doesn\\\\\\\'t helps.
* Black & White Movies:
Speed up for slow machines on movies.
* Disable CD-DA:
Will disable CD audio.
* Enable Console Output:
Displays the psx text output.
* Enable Interpreter Cpu:
Enables interpretive emulation (recomiler by default),
it may be more compatible, but it\\\\\\\'s slower.
* Psx System Type:
Autodetect: Try to autodetect the system.
NSTC/PAL: Specify it for yourself.
Internal HLE Bios:
If you select this instead of a regular bios (ie. \\\\\\\"scph1001.bin\\\\\\\")
Pcsx will emulate the bios (this might not work in all cases but it is
quite advanced), you can try it and see which one works better, notice
that the HLE bios might be faster than a regular one and may make some
games work better.
You must select a plugin in the NetPlay Configuration, note that the plugin
must support the v2 of the api. If you don\\\\\\\'t want to use it simply select
the Disabled one, refer to the plugin\\\\\\\'s doc for more info.
