PCSX2 0.9.6 Description:
PCSX2 0.9.6, from initially just being able to run a few public domain demos, PCSX2 0.9.6 current state enables many games to boot and actually go in game, such as the 'famous' Final Fantasy X or Devil May Cry 3. PS2 Emulation is a complex task, far worse than emulating a console from the previous generation (PlayStation1, N64, Saturn), simply due to the CPU power required to get 'playable' speeds from a PS2 game under emulation.
PCSX2 0.9.6 does the job remarkably well although don't throw your Playstation 2 away quite yet. It struggles with high speed action and is prone to freezing or crashing at the most annoying moments. PCSX2 0.9.6 comes in 2 versions, the TLB and the VM (virtual memory) one. The TLB version is the pcsx2t.exe while the VM version is the pcsx2.exe. First try running the VM version, following the instructions given (type your account user name, log off/on and restart). If PCSX2 0.9.6 still fails to allocate the memory, simply use the TLB version and don't worry the speed difference is not that great. After that, the PCSX2 0.9.6 setup procedure is quite lengthy although if you're Playstation 2 is broken, you'll find this a more than adequate replacement.
