An emulator is software that simulates the functions of other platforms or devices. For example, when you use the PlayStation emulator on a computer, it copies the functions of the Sony PlayStation console and allows you to play games from the PlayStation in the same way as you would on the console. To emulate the PlayStation system on a computer, you need to download, install and configure the ePSXe emulator correctly.

Installing the ePSXe Emulator

1. Download the latest version of the ePSXe emulator.

2. Unpack the archive with the emulator (you need an archiver). In order to avoid incidents, make sure that the path to the folder with the emulator does not contain Cyrillic. I will unpack the emulator to the ps1 folder in the root of drive D (i.e. the path to the emulator D: / ps1 ).

3. Attention! For the emulator to work, Microsoft Visual C ++ 2010 and DirectX must be installed on the system.

Note. If your Russian version of the emulator doesn’t work well or crashes (for example, this is possible on some versions of Windows 10), then download the English version - it contains a mark on the download page v200 (stable) . The configuration is carried out in exactly the same way.

7. Internal resolution on X - set 2: Very high .

8. Internal resolution on Y - 3: Ultra high (who has a weak video card - set 2: Very high).

9. Scaling. For games that were released on PS1, the native aspect ratio was 3: 4. Therefore, we choose zoom mode 2: Keep aspect ratio, stretch on small heights .

10. Render mode and Threading mode set to maximum (values ​​2 and 3, respectively).

11. Setting the texture.

Texture filtering - for better graphics, select 1: Standart .

Hi-Res Texture - leave 0: None .

Video Memory Capacity - 256 or 512.

Be sure to check Use texture shaders in window mode .

12. Frames per second. Check only Frame Limit / s and put an end to Auto frame limit / skip .

13. Compatibility . All values ​​are set to maximum ( Extended and Full ).

14. Full screen filters.

Tick ​​off Image filtering .

Tick ​​off Shader effects leave the value 1: Fullscreen smoothing and shader power set the value 4: Maximum .

15. Section Other. Check only the opposite MDEC Filtration and Fixes for GF4 .

16. Configuring the graphics plugin is complete. It should be like in the screenshot. Push OK .

17. Once again, we get to the video plugin selection window and click Further .

18. Sound settings. Choose a plugin ePSXe SPU core 2.0.0 . Click on Customization .

Push OK to apply the settings.

24. Click Further . The ePSXe setup is now complete. Push Done .
