Default PSX emulation

For PSX emulation, which is most compatible? ePSXe or pSX. just wondering cause pSX has made some leaps and bounds as of late.

Edit: extend this to all psx emulators.

Hard to say. pSX really had made leaps and bounds, but more accurate than ePSXe?

Well pSX is certainly cleaner and almost certainly has less hacks, but ePSXe probably still edges it in overall compatibility due to its longevity and large user base. But the gap must be very small at the moment.

As for the others, PSXeven is close third in my eyes. Good accuracy and usability. I've also heard good things about Xebra, but never used it myself. SSSPSX is another decent looking emulator, but it just crashes for me. It's also worth considering that a new version of ZiNc (with home console support) will probably be arriving this year. It's not likely to be polished, but anything with a pair of MAMEdevs working on it is going to be accurate.

i tried pSX out, and i was blown away to a large degree, i heard the PSX bootup sound and all of a sudden i was back on my PSX from back in the day. The only thing that bothers me is the lack of video filters, and my laptop runs it better than my desktop. and i find that sad, cause the only thing my laptop has thats better than my desktop is its cpu.

Yeah, the BIOS screens are a nice touch. Most other emulators skip that.

pSX is designed to be very accurate, and that neccesitates software rendering. I've gotten accustomed to it and started to prefer it (I finally see the MAME way!). Hardware rendering has a lot of inherant problems and I'm getting tired of them.

But, if you like them, then look forward to when ZiNc 1.2 is out. The current version supports plugins, and the next version will do the same along with supporting the home console. Should be very nice.

That's weird, pSX doesn't push video hardware much at all, CPU power should be pretty much all that matters. Maybe it's not running properly.

Got a link to pSX? It seems the emulator section here doesn't have it. Or I'm completely missing it.

my laptop is using the same settings, bios files, everything, and if i turn on Vsync on my desktop its starts frame skipping to keep up. it really is weird. but it doesn't really matter, i just run it with Vsync off. The lack of filters isn't bothering me as much though now, its getting better than it was.

What's the refresh rate on your monitor? An LCD's refresh rate is usually 60Hz and if your desktop monitor is higher than that, the computer will have more trouble with VSYNC. If it's slowing you down, try turning your refresh rate down.
