PCSX-Reloaded is, plugin-based PlayStation emulator.



PCSX-R is the best choice if you want to play 3D games at higher resolutions. If you encounter glitches or you're emulating a 2D game, use Mednafen instead. Check Recommended PSX Plugins for plugin configurations.However Windows version is currently unmaintained[1][2][3][4] and has inferior feature set so if you are on Windows ePSXe may be better.

PCSX-Reloaded features :

  • Native multitrack Cue sheet support
  • Disk tray opening and closing for games that require it
  • A widescreen hack in the CPU options (3D games only)
  • Controller plugin support
  • Compatibility with anti-jitter options in graphics plugins, such as GTE accuracy in the default Peops OpenGL plugin, or Improved coordinate accuracy in Edgbla gpuBladeSoft and it also supports Pete OpenGL2 plugin.
  • OS X support
  • Suppport for ECM files (curently only OSX and Linux version)
  • Support for Libarchive (currently only OSX and Linux version)
  • Save Rewind feature (currently only OSX and Linux version)

Changing discs with PCSX-REdit

Some games (like Final Fantasy) allow you to save in the "Disc Change screen". For games that don't allow that (like Metal Gear Solid), disc switching can be a bit tricky:

  1. Press F9 to open Disc tray
  2. Press Esc to go to PCSX-R menu
  3. Emulator → Switch ISO...
  4. Emulator → Run
  5. Press F10 to close Disc tray

OS X disc switchingEdit

The process for switching discs on OS X is slightly different:

  1. Go to File → Eject…
  2. For physical CDs:
    1. The physical CD will eject.
    2. Replace the CD that was ejected.
    3. Close the drive: PCSX-R will wait for a new CD to be inserted and resume when a new one is available. NOTE: The current release version does not wait for a new CD. An svn build will work better.
  3. ​For ISOs:
    1. ​A file selection window will come up.
    2. Select your new ISO.
    3. Click the "Open" button.
