    Hi,

    I'm Roor, I hope someone remembers me... I made some emulators some time ago: AdriPSX, DuoS DSEmu, and some others that surely no one knows.

    Anyway, since middle 2014 I begun refactoring my old PS2 Emu project; and now it runs games and plays with an acceptable degree of performance.

    I was planning on renaming it, right now it is just generic "ps2emu" (tentatively "Connectix Ps2emu").

    Features so far:

    - Good compatibility, plays most (but not all) commercial games from ISOs.
    - HLE Based. It doesn't require a BIOS.
    - Doesn't use any plugin at all.
    - Small footprint : it's only 1.2Mb in total.
    - Requires CPU with SSE2 support.
    - Requires DirectX 9 with shader 2.0 support.
    - Supports MemoryCard files, but no SaveStates.
    - Has SD (original res) and HD (high res) modes, for enhanced graphics.
    - Runs fairly well on Intel I5, Windows 8, without external GPU which I use for tests.

    I plan to do a limited release (for testers only) by next Monday.

    Please write to kingprofit@hotmail.com, if interested.

    Thanks,
    Roor

    Awesome!! I remember you. I'd be interested in trying the emulator out. Of course my hardware has changed quite a bit over the years. I do have a few questions though:

    1. Are you going to opensource the project? In the future?
    2. What's your development plans for the project?

    Thank you for the times. Cheers.

    Great news, i sure remember AdriPSX after all i have almost just as much fun memories with it as with ePSXe XD.

    As for the emu all i can say is that i can't wait to be able to test it on my AMD PC XD.

    I remember you from DuoOS back when I still had a system that could not run desmume and I was trying to find a DS emulator that worked well since No$GBA was still forced to use No$Zoomer and the audio issues were a like nails on a chalkboard still. Hopefully you can make something good and decent with a PS2 emulator.

    Whoa, nice. ^^

    A new emulator is always a great thing. And the no-plugin thing makes me happy. ;)

    I just e-mailed the "private beta" to all the people who applied for testing the emulator (by email since last week).
    Please email me comments, glitches, compatibility lists, and so.

    Thanks in advance!

    Next Monday (March 9th) I'll send a new Beta to the ones who applied; several GS/GPU issues have been addressed and performance have been slightly improved.

    If I make it in time (I can't make promises) I'll try to get Game-pad/Joystick support available during this weekend.

    Thanks!

    Hi. I ve been a bit busy, and I wanted to include some more improvements before releasing the second beta.
    Sorry for the delay. I'll try to make it in time before this weekend.
    Thanks for your patience.

    Hi Roor, is posting some screencaps of the application allowed? I believe it will even bring more awareness and excitement to the community.

    "connectix ps2emu" ? I hoped you'd call it "bleem! 2" :p

    and sure, I remember AdriPsx and its author :)
    I tried out all the ps1 emulators back then ;)

    No problem publishing screen-captures and so.
    Just make sure to indicate which "beta" was used (release date for the beta, at least).

    Cheers.

    BTW, I'll go with the "Connectix Ps2emu" name.

    In honor to "Connectix Virtual Game Station"... which was (in some ways) the best ps1 emulator at the time of its release... in my humble opinion.
