Question for those who emulate, are the programs compatible with legit PS2 saves? i would probably do it if I could carry over  my existing PS2 saves that I have.

I haven't investigated that but I think there is no way to connect PS2 memory cards to PC. But if your PS2 has a hard drive then it could be possible but I'm not sure.

I already have the saves on my PC. I have a memory card adapter on my launch PS3. I just want to know if the files will work on an emulator.

In that case, it seems like it is possible according to the PCSX2 wiki. I'm unsure whether you'll need the progam "myMC" or not, according to the description it is vague about that. 

http://wiki.pcsx2.net/index.php/Memcard

The PCSX2 emulator stores memory card information in the memcards subfolder of your PCSX2 configuration folder. Following the PS2's 2-card format the emulator names both memcards Mcd001.ps2 and Mcd002.ps2, which use the emulator's native .ps2 file format. Similarly these files are also around 8 MB in size just like the physical Sony PS2 memory cards.

Currently most PS2 memcard functions are emulated and considered usable.

Thanks for the help. I'm going to try it out some when I get home.

why play the PS2 version of Deus Ex, ZOMG

Because it's the better version - better interface and controls. I play it with my wireless Dualshock 3, know what I mean? Controller > kboard+mouse.

you're in the minority but okay. 

the areas are chopped into, and lighting was pretty much taken away.

But if for some reason you like controllers then yeah.

Gonna have to check this out. PS2 was RPG heaven. Would like to see how they look with better graphics.

But the graphics would be the same. I think you meant resolution.

I'm pretty sure there are filters involved  here that make better graphics

I really wonder if I could run that emulator on my laptop...

And I can use original discs, right? Or do I need ISOs?


What are your specs? Emulation speed (in general) relies a lot in CPU speed (not clockspeed).

I know you probably already know this, but I wanted to clarify a part of your post for others. Clockspeed is still important. There isn't much multi-threading in emulation, at most two cores/threads are used so that makes it a very clock-speed dependent application when talking about intel vs. intel or amd vs. amd (Instructions per cycle on each core are also important so Intel vs. AMD doesn't work.) People always say go for IPC and clock-speed over anything else if you want to emualate games at the best settings. An i3 or Pentium at 3.2 GHZ + is going to be better than an i7 at 2.4ghz, for example, despite having a fourth to half of the threads, because these applications just don't use multi-threading or more than two cores (there are some instances where they can, but it shows minimal difference.)

Having said that, his CPU should run most games at full speed (don't know which resolution with his GPU, guessing 720p.) 

Thanks for clarifying.

I don't know much about PC gaming and emulation requirements and such, so it's very helpful.

If I could run PS2 games at 720p, that'd be awesome and I'd be content with it.

(I bought this laptop not for games, but for multitasking with office software (e.g. really huge Excel files) and PDFs. So far it's doing a great job.)

All these RPG games I've never seen before in my childhood... Kingdom Hearts is the only one.. What was I doing with my PS2?...

A lot of them were released in 2005/2006, near the launch of the 7th gen. You probably were distracted with the new consoles.



PSP looks great too on emulation. I tried out Birth by sleep on my 750ti and looked awesome :)



I got everything working and was playing Yakuza 2 start out of my disc drive. Controller working nice as well. Only issues I ran into was the sound. FPS is fine but audio would have occasional glitches or errors. It was odd.
