    Now that's good news!

    I have been waiting since November for a new version of this PlayStation emulator for Wii (and GC) and finally it's out.
    Here it is:

    http://code.google.com/p/pcsxgc/

    I tested it with Castlevania SOTN and it works perfectly.


    The whole engine was updated and Dynarec is now working!

    For what i can see:

    -improved compatibility
    -more gamepad compatibility
    -faster emulation
    -better sound support
    -memcard management

    I think many games are already 'full' playable (except some glitches).

    What else can i say? Many thanks to the team (tehpola, emukidid, sepp256)!!!

    edit:
    A modified version from SLotman with classic controller support (no more gc controller):

    Well I'm about to try FF9 CD1, will update if it runs.....

    Edit - Tried Dynarec and Interpreter modes but both stop loading when the screen says "Execute" - PAL FF9 CD1 Bin/Cue format.

    OK, I forgot PAL FF9 had copy protection - PPF patched it and its running, get a code dump error after selecting region from the ppf patch/trainer front menu though.

    adding wii controllers support is by far the easiest things to do with libogc
    same goes for adding uSB/SDHC support

    why do people always seem to be obsessed whith that kind of features, this is certainly not top priority for them as they probably have much more important and interesting tasks to handled first rather than adding tons of "shiny" features to catch people's attention..

    remember this is BETA, which means it's only released for people motivated enough to test the current progress;
    if you want it so much, why not buying a GC controller, they are damn cheap ?

    Tales of Phantasia translation works pretty well so far. Wish I could get rid of the stats at the top but im sure that will be implemented eventually

    It does.

    Castlevania works perfectly for me as well.
    I'm about to try Vagrant Story in a moment.

    The readme says it only likes .bin and .cue

    I put both of them in there but I wouldn't be surprised if it ran with only the .bin.

    Edit: It seems that I misread what you typed.

    I never used ImgBurn to convert an image but I just opened it and I see that you can make a .bin from a disc or from files.

    Vagrant Story is working.

    Edit: lol at sdhc workout. I only have 8GB and of as course as with everything the amount of space you have is always below what it is listed as.

    use Dynarec control for best response.

    ape escape = not working
    gex 3 deep cover gecko = runs at 50 fps mainly sound is messed up though
    spyro 3 = actually plays pretty good! sound is a bit messed but it runs smoothly, no music though
    spyro= also runs smoothly, no music voice works but not in sync.
    spyro 2 = runs smooth, no music, voice is messed up
    gex2 = almost perfect sound and music works, voice doesn't and runs smooth.
