Post em here guys
Here's some playing Final Fantasy Origins(FF1). Works great, opening fmv little slow, but works perfect!
Sorry for the big white space in the screenshots, pasted the screenshots to ms paint and tried to stretch the image through paintshop pro afterwards, but didn't work right.
#1 - The crystal shown in the opening FMV
#2 - New game!
#3 - Out on the overworld map
#4 - In battle
Try to make them a little bit smaller..maybe 400X400 resolution or something like that.
Treasures of the Deep, not bad
Nice, At first I thought mdecs sound were missing but they are there.
Some Castlevania: SOTN screens! This emu is alread great!!
I got full speed on this game, and the graphics are not bad!! Also, it supports that screen flipping thingy when you kill Dracula on the prologue! Not even on EPSXE I was able to see this effect!!
I had the same problem in SOTN with the snapshot effect...until I switched to the Peops Soft GPU.
Breath of Fire 3 and Harvest Moon! They seem perfect with this emu! I got full speed in both, and I'm NOT using frameskip!!!
Man, I'm really impressed with this emulator! The first version already plays sooo many games just like the original PSX!! Even Chrono Cross works great, at full speed! Even the MDECs are full speed and with a great quality!
Oh, and unlike VGS, the item menu works!!!!!
Some screenies of Chrono Cross and Darkstalkers! I've seen a VERY minor bug on Darkstalkers, at the select character screen, but it doesn't bothered me!
Its no suprise that Chrono Cross runs well... its one of my favourite games ever ever!
Oh Kid... how I love you... even though I know that movie of you at the end of the game is probably an ugly chick in a wig (maybe even a man)....
Some more tested games:
Final Fantasy 7: Well, I tested it before, but forgot to add some screenshots! Other than the sounds, the game seems perfect! Also, the 2d backgrounds are REALLY great looking, but without any kind of glitches! BTW, its workinf at full speed!
Rival Schools: Seems perfect! Full speed and the graphics are the same as the real PSX (I HAVE a real PSX!). The 2d artworks are looking great!
Something that made me a bit sad...
I tested my favorite game of all times, "Valkyrie Profile". At first, I was impressed! This emu can show great graphics in 2d images! Look at the first image! Impressive! It looks better than EPSXE with the PEoPS plugin! Then, I heard the voices. They are noisy, making them anoying to hear! But thats not a HUGE problem!
But after a while... The game froze... On the same place it used to freeze on VGS... Its after the last pic, it supposed to show the 3d map, but the screen just go blank! I can hear the ambient sounds, but I can see nothing...
-Revelations: Persona and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment = Both are working great, I haven't seen any kind of problems! The sound is also perfect for both games, even the voices!
-Parasite Eve = Perfect too! And the MDECs really look great here!
Alright, I'm new so be nice. Is there an emulator better than EPSXE overall?
Now??? NO!! Maybe in the future...
Epsxe is being made for many years now, and is always getting better! Also, since it uses plugins, you can get enhancements on the graphics and sounds (there's a sound plugin that make the games sounds better than the real PSX, for example).
PSXeven is also good, but it still has many bugs, and MANY timing problems!
Make sure you keep an eye on pSX though!! This one runs most games just like the real PSX, its easy to use and has a better timing than EPSXE in most games!! If you are like me who don't care for enhanced graphics, I'm sure you'll love pSX!!
To change the subject, I tried Final Fantasy 9 today, but it crashes on the oppening (right before it shows Zidane inside that ship!). I don't know if its my iso, and my CD is in my causin's house, so I can't test it now. Can someone test it?
Anyway, I tried Grandia and it works perfect! Haven't seen any kind of problems, the sound is perfect (including the voices) and the game is fast! I haven't seen slowdowns when using magic like EPSXE and VGS!
Now that the new version is out, and can read some games from the CD, I tested Megaman X4 (wich I can't make a iso 'cause my HD is full), and it was almost perfect! Both the graphics and sounds are perfect, IMHO, the graphs are better than the real PSX (less blurry). The only problem I've encountered was a 20-30 seconds pause when the level ends, but I have a feeling that it was just 'cause I was playing from the CD instead of an iso!
Well, I tried using PSX emulator v1.2 so far into period 6 of Valkyrie Profile it's fine...except it sometimes has these mini pauses nothing big though. Here's a few screenshots.
Doesn't work here either (NTSC/US version).
playing through Final Fantasy 9 for the first time and it's working great (US version). I ripped the disc images with CloneCD, mounted with Daemon Tools, and just used the virtual drive to play.
Here's a few shots from the first few hours of play:
There's a black bar along the bottom, so I simply cropped it out and resized to 1024x768 (I play in 1280x960) to make the screenshots look a bit better. I'm currently on Disc 3 and have a few hundred screencaps (grabbing with fraps), but i didn't want to post anything too spoilerific
I also recently played through Warhawk with it:
Yea, I love this emulator.
Sorry i didnt have alot of screenshots there are 2 bugs i found. It froze after the save screen twice and after playing for 30 mins a wierd thing on the side happend it was in this pic but in the ss it didnt show i was probably my computer. But this emulator is good it played at full speed.
screens taken with Fraps
- Army Men: Air Attack
- Crash Bandicoot 2
- Cyber Tiger
- Need for Speed III
- Nuclear Strike
All games ran at excellent speeds with only minor sound difficulties. With the exception of Nuclear Strike which burst into strobe lights as soon as gameplay started - I dunno.
