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.
Advantages over ePSXe (in progress):
- 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 plugin, or Improved coordinate accuracy in gpuBladeSoft.
- OS X support
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:
- Press F9 to open Disc tray
- Press Esc to go to PCSX-R menu
- Emulator → Switch ISO...
- Emulator → Run
- Press F10 to close Disc tray
OS X disc switchingEdit
The process for switching discs on OS X is slightly different:
- Go to File → Eject…
- For physical CDs:
- The physical CD will eject.
- Replace the CD that was ejected.
- 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.
- For ISOs:
- A file selection window will come up.
- Select your new ISO.
- Click the "Open" button.
