I backported the ps2 emulator PCSX2 to give back XP compatibility, maybe also ReactOS?

Post by blueclouds8666 »

Hello reactOS community, i've recently worked on a project that involved making PCSX2, the well known PlayStation 2 emulator, to work again under the Windows XP operating system, as they removed support back in 2016. The version i got working is v1.6.0 from May 2020. It took me quite a lot of time but i think it was worth it.

What i was remembering was, there was one PCSX2 video on the ReacOS channel recently (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qvQtm0OIEw) which was running seemingly fine. However that's a quite old version, v1.2.1 and ii was wondering if the reason behind that was that newer versions didn't work under ReactOS. Well maybe now that my modified version has a broader OS support, maybe it works now with ReactOS.

However i don't know if that was the case or if my version even works under ReactOS. If anyone has any interest, you can download the binaries on both my website and on github:

You may also join my discord server where we can talk about this too: https://discord.gg/KXKXcs4
If my fork version happens to not work under ReactOS, i could help and try to fix it on code, so it can become ReactOS compatible.

If your program works on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, then there are nothing more to "make it work" on ReactOS: it should work there too. If not, this means that it's a bug/missing functionality in ReactOS that needs to be corrected in ReactOS only.
