PCSX-ReARMed - yet another PCSX fork

Build Status

see readme.txt for more complete documentation

PCSX ReARMed is yet another PCSX fork based on the PCSX-Reloaded project, which itself contains code from PCSX, PCSX-df and PCSX-Revolution. This version is ARM architecture oriented and features MIPS->ARM recompiler by Ari64, NEON GTE code and more performance improvements. It was created for Pandora handheld, but should be usable on other devices after some code adjustments (N900, GPH Wiz/Caanoo, PlayBook versions are also available).

PCSX ReARMed features ARM NEON GPU by Exophase, that in many cases produces pixel perfect graphics at very high performance. There is also Una-i's GPU plugin from PCSX4ALL project, and traditional P.E.Op.S. one.


PCSX-Reloaded is a forked version of the dead PCSX emulator, with a nicer interface and several improvements to stability and functionality.

PCSX-Reloaded uses the PSEMU plugin interface to provide most functionality; without them, you will not be able to use it to play games. PCSX-Reloaded provides a number of plugins to provide basic functionality out of the box.

PCSX-Reloaded has a very capable Internal HLE BIOS that can run many games without problems. It is recommended that you use it. However, if you own a real PlayStation, you may be able to use your own BIOS image. PCSX-Reloaded will find it in ~/.pcsx/bios/ or /usr/share/psemu/bios/ if you place it there. This can improve compatibility, especially with certain games and with the use of memory cards.

See the doc/ folder in the source, or /usr/share/doc/pcsx/ on Debian systems, for more detailed information on PCSX-Reloaded. A UNIX manpage is also available.
