PCSX-R[edit]

We need to do something about PCSXR. The page sings the praise of the emulator too highly. I consider it only moderately better than epsxe, but it is still a plugin and glitchy mess.

Many recent builds are broken too. At the very least we should find the latest one that works right and link to that one. --173.206.82.252 22:26, 13 April 2014 (EDT)

Oh, wow, a very old message from four years ago... Yeah, I think we all kinda agree about PCSX-R being a plugin-based mess and I see that its ongoing development is stuttering a bit. However, good news is RetroArch has got that good Beetle PSX core (still not perfect compatibility for everything); MEDNAFEN is excellent but unfortunately has got no debugging tools for ANY of its core (not good for romhacking or bugfixes). It's very strange that, despite all this time and the burgeoning field, there is not a very large number of recommended PSX emulators for desktop PC's.
To me, Avocado seems very promising and is being well made and relatively easy to use, I imagine. But it's being made solely by a Polish developer so progress will not be very fast. We see on the main page that the PCSX-R fork bundled with the PGXP graphical enhancement plugin is good. ObiKKa (talk) 03:20, 7 December 2018 (EST)

ZXE-D: Legend of Plasmalite[edit]

It should be noted that this game cannot be emulated by any emulator because it uses an external device (assemblable robots with parts) which connects to the memory card slot to show an exact replica of your robot during gameplay. No efforts have ever been made, and nobody is interested or maybe documentation/device availability is lacking.

PSXACT[edit]

Can anyone find evidence to this project still being active? The github page linked 404s and google isn't helping me.

It moved to gitlab.

Miss important historical PSX emulator![edit]

"Connectix VGS" was the first commercial emulator for PS1 and therefore deserves to be included in this list.
