    Problems with pcsx2

    Hello everyone. I just downloaded pcsx2 (Seemed like only hope to play good game on Linux (( ). And I think plugins and bios is ok. But I tried to play Dark cloud 1, but nothing. A window showed up, and was hearing the start sound of ps2. But unfortunately, the window wasn't showing anything, just fps( and it was around 40-50). So I want to know if the problem in game or something. And i'd really appreciate if someone could post here which games he.she played with this emu. And if possible user who have experience with this emu, post help maybe I configured plugins bad or something.

    P.S>Well my video card isn't "brilliant" I am using Toshiba satellite L300 with it's standard videocard. It's Vram should be around 368 (Checked when I used Windows, don't know if it is same in Linux)
    Sorry for this long long post

    at least it's the only hope to play good ps2 games under linux.
    pcsx2 is very hardware demanding.
    I've got a GeForce GTX 460 and a Q9550 and sucessfully played through FFX and FFXII under ~x86 gentoo with pcsx2 svn. pcsx2 settings have been more or less default afair. no chance to play f.e. wipeout fusion in full speed with this machine though, at least not with those settings.

    Well, I found what the problem is. My plugins (video, usb and cd/dvd) are null, which I've figured out is just for testing, that's why I heard the music but not the video. I tried to find something from other forums, but I am totally noob, there was something about compiling, and svn I don't understand anything. Isn't there any plugins just to download and apply?

    Thumbs down Re: Problems with pcsx2

    I got it running on 11.10 by following the install routine found in the Arch PKGBUILD in their AUR which will give you a good list of dependencies

    Unfortunately my current machine is not really powerful enough in the gfx department to make best use of it
    cd /fridge/beer | drink && fallover

    You may want to try the following.

    First, remove your copy of pcsx2.

    Second, install the micove console gaming ppa by opening a terminal and typing the following:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:micove/console
    You'll be prompted for your password, and then asked to confirm adding the ppa to your repositories.

    After the ppa has been added, type the following in your terminal:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install pcsx2
    The benefit of doing it this way is that all necessary plugins should be installed, along with all dependencies.

    Re: Problems with pcsx2


    i'm having trouble with this too. at first i was using the GSnull plugin and it was just showing a grey window while playing the PS2 bootup sound. i realised it was a "null" plugin, so i changed it to ZZ Ogl. it wouldn't do anything. when i booted it, it just threw up an error with an invisible window which i have to xkill to get past to clicking anything behind it. i've installed it using the PPA method now, and it's still doing the same thing.


    here's my bios log:
