[GAME] Playstation 1 emulator for POWER platform?
« on: March 26, 2020, 04:45:51 am »
Been wondering if anyone has experimented with any working PSX emulator? I've tried PCSXR which crashed because the Pete's OpenGL plugin got segmentation fault. I also have tried the mednafen emulator with no success (only the bios pops up).

UPDATE:

I managed to get PCSXR and mednafen (compiled from sources) run PSX games

Wow congratulations tle, you're always very active on the games front and various emulators, good. But it would take something newer don't you think? Like a PS2 emulator for example.

I haven't tried any PS2 yet. Going to give GC a go first because I really want to finish the Zelda: Wind Walker this time.

I got it. But do you feel something newer that runs with the Unreal Engine 4 graphics engine like I know, Tekken 7 or similar?

Do you have any suggestion? I am not aware of any UE4-base game that offers ppc64le binary atm.

Unfortunately, no, that's why I asked you. I the only one that I know you know him too or Unrial tournament, only that as you told me, you are currently missing parts because of which you cannot continue. Other I don't know.

E. g. EtherealLegends is UE4-based.

Another emulator that does the job very well is RetroArch with Beetle PSX HW core. Highly recommended!
