    I'm using the emulator pcsx2 0.9.6, when I click Run CD/DVD, this error message pops out "The GS plugin failed to open/initialise. Most forum says I should update my direct, but when I tried it says my directx (whihch is DirectX 9.0c) is the latest 1. (I'm using window XP). Please help me, I really want to play KH Re:Chain of Memory (since it wasn't released in Aus)

    That's the log that I got from the emulator

    try updating your graphics card drivers.

    you aren't going to get far with that processor in emulating ps2 though.

    Your computer is not powerful enough for this PCSX2 but anyway try this:

    You need Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 and 2008 and 2010 Redistributable as well.

    I had the same error before. It works fine for me now using those three. No, you cannot pick one of them. You need three of them.

    Ok I'll try, but where do I download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable? (Sorry if it's illegal to ask this)

    You have to have three of them. Not just 2010 Redistributable. [​IMG]

    Use the google engine to find it. Its in Microsoft site. [​IMG]

    I have no idea about microsoft visual c++ 2010 Redistributable i know it being planned to be released in april 2010 but there is a beta version (currently at beta 2)
    I'm not sure where to download it because i cant find it on the microsoft site i would've use google but there's alot of fakes about so i would advise wait til its released

    Link to wiki page and see at visual c++ 2010 wiki (just showing its being release in sometime march-april)

    My laptop is just as powerful as your pc and it's not powerful enough for PCSX2, and neither is your computer. Sorry to tell you that.

    what do you mean by powerful? Do you mean that it won't run it as fast or is it the reason why the error message keeps popping out.

    If it's a message about you not having a Pixel Shader, then you'll have to shell out over 100$ for a new graphics card.

    It's the problem I have, and that's the only error message i've gotten.

    That's what I thought. The solution is using GSDX Plugin as the graphic plugin or get a new graphic card.
