PS2 emulator nsx2   nSX2 - the first working (still in beta) PS2 Emulator for PC


click to see large version...the beginning

In the beginning of August, I read the DVD of ISO with my PC ( I really love this game ) and I found a file - don't remember exactly the name - wich contain the source in assembler of the game. I started to study this file. I cleaned some comment. I started to write a interpreter in REBOL - a great very easy language but very slow - .
To go faster, I rewrite the interperter in C.
This program read each line and interprete the opcode already dissambler.
After some succes , I decide to rewrite the entire interprter with a dissambler.
I restart from scratch 2 or 3 times because of bad initial solutions. I chose QNX because the help is VERY well done.
Finally I made an interprter wich seems to run. nSX2 was born.

PS3 Chips

The new generation of PlayStation 3 USB Jailbreak Mod-Chips for playing copied PS3 isos from the internal hdd or an external USB Hard Drive. PS3 Backup Manager tool. PS3HUB with built in USB-hub for connecting external Hard Drives and not taling up extra ports on the PS3. No need to unplug.

PS3 Backup Manager Jailbreak chip

...the emu

I decide to release this emu under the GNU license.
I try to make a portable emulator.
I want to create a community of people who can help me in developing this emu.
If you see the source, I use only standard C for better compatibility with other OS.
I chose gcc and the SDL lib for the same reasons.

I'm trying to make a clean code ( and sometimes commented ) so if you make change try to comment your changes.
If you are very interested in developing this emu and if you don't understand what I did, mail me I'll try to explain.

For info, French is my natural language.
I have a work so I can't spend all my time on this emu but all my free time is for this project.

NEW ! NeutrinoSX 0.07 Release  Shadowpri 16/03/2003 @ 23:00


  A lot of things have been added to this release ( for a complete list , see the Readme.txt ),
  the most important , nsx2 begin to emulate the micromode and the macromode of the VU.
  Ah yes , if you want to try ISO , you have to extract ( manually ) the .elf before Loading
  the ISO.
  If you don't understand nothing up to this sentence, don't even try to mail us :)
  We promise do better things in the Future.

  Want to talk about the Future ?
  We decided to take some time for the next release .
  We decided to focus on unimplemented opcodes, and missing parts of the emulator  and
prolly use the Win32 API for the GUI.

  Thanks to my team.
  Thanks to all other people who contact us and help us.


 Important: for running 0.07 you need to download gtk runtime on this link

PS3 emulators

The PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 iSO filescan be copied and transferred to computer discs to allow practical storage. The iso discs are useful in case the original game disc has been damaged. Using the disc with the iso image, the game can be played in the actual Xbox console. People can download the Xbox games posted in the internet and convert them as iso files. This would allow people to enjoy the Xbox games on a Xbox360 emulator without spending too much money to buy original discs. 


NEW ! neutrinoSX2 v0.02 by muad le 09/09/2002 @ 09:00
