[PS2] [Emulator] PCSX2 v1.3.1 Updated! (Complete w/ BIOS, Plugins, Tools & Patches) + BIOS Collection

Hi Emu Fans ^^

I just packed an up to date package of PCSX2 with everything you might ever need. And it's not 1.1.0, not 1.2.0 or 1.3.0, BUT 1.3.1 !!
Included are all latest plugins, bios, widescreen hacks, patches and tools. As a bonus, I also added some pretty helpful guides.
I will try to update this thread after some revisions. Hopefully it helps some to get a more complete version of PCSX2!


1.) Download my package and extract the "PCSX2-1.3.1" folder to wherever you like (for Example: "C:\Program Files\PCSX2-1.3.1").
2.) If you want, create a desktop shortcut for "pcsx2.exe" as well.
3.) Start PCSX2 and go through the 1st start wizard. Just import the settings on update.

If it's not already installed on your system (either x86 or x64 OS!), since this was
build with Visual C++ 2013, you need to have Visual C++ 2013 Redist (x86) installed.

WiDESCREEN HACKS (1800+ Hacks)
Last update: 2015-05-03 (devina40)

Start PCSX2, go to "System" and make sure "Enable Widescreen Patches" is checked. You can enable the
console to ensure that PCSX2 has found the patch. Now open "PCSX2 > Config > Emulation Settings".
Go to "GS Window > Aspect Ratio", and ensure "Widescreen (16:9)" is selected.

When toggling widescreen hacks using "Enable Cheats", it's recommend to do it with a fresh boot each time.

If you save your game with widescreen hacks on and reload the save without them enabled, they won't be applied anymore.
If you load a "widescreen hack save state" from a "cheats disabled" config, you'll likely still have it enabled.

If PCSX2 doesn't seem to be locating the widescreen cheats, it may be because PCSX2 is searching the wrong folder.
This is common if there are multiple installations of PCSX2, or if you're using a shortcut to it.

Read "PCSX2 Widescreen FAQ" for a list of supported games, an FAQ and more!

FX SHADER (40 Shader)
Last update: 2015-05-06 (m3Zz)

All shaders are located in the "shaders" folder. They work with the GSdx plugins and within this folder only.

GSdx FX shader by Asmodean ("GSdx.fx" + "GSdx_FX_Settings.ini") is activated ("shaderfx=1") by default. Any
other shader also need to be named "GSdx.fx" and would replace GSdx FX. But GSdx FX provides a wide range of
features and can be fully customized. Some settings are pre-activated: UHQ FXAA, HQ Bloom, Tone & Vibrance

To edit GSdx FX's settings, open "GSdx_FX_Settings.ini" and customize any options. GSdx has fixed shortcuts,
so make sure your shortcuts don't conflict. They will affect GSdx also when alt/ctrl/shift are pressed. It's
best to completely avoid them.


  HOME = toggles FX shader on/off
PAGEUP = toggles FXAA on/off
INSERT = toggles Software mipmapping
  DEL = toggles Software Edge Anti-Aliasing (AA1)
  F9 = switches from the Hardware rendering into Software rendering
  F5 = cycles through deinterlacing modes
  F6 = cycles through different aspect ratios (4:3, 16:9 and "stretch to screen")
  F7 = tries to alter the "pixel geometry" by applying some "TV-like" shaders
  F8 = takes the screenshot of the current screen
  F12 = will start to record a video, finish the capture simply press F12 again

GAME PATCHES (16 Patches)
Last update: 2015-05-03 (devina40)

Each patch is located inside the "cheats" folder.

The "DE37E046.pnach" is just the default PCSX2 cheat file example.

To activate a patch/cheat, they have to be moved into the "cheats" folder, no sub folder. Now load up your
game with PCSX2. Take a close look at the PCSX2 log and check the so called "Game CRC" (without the "0x").
Your Game MUST! have the same Game CRC as the patch filename, if not > try to rename the *.pnach file.
If the Game CRC is the same, you just have to "Activate Cheats" (@ System) before you load up the Game.
Or you stop the Game with ESC, activate cheats and resume it. Always check the log if the patch gets loaded.

You can open *.pnach files with Notepad. There you find infos about the actually function of each patch. So
before you use any of them, on certain patches you have to activate or deactivate some values inside the patch
file itself. To do so, go to your "cheats" folder and open up the right patch (remember the Game CRC)
with Notepad. You might have to add or delete the "//" in front of a value to activate/deactivate them.

Especially for pnach patches/cheats, read the following:
- How pnach files work (HTML)
- Guide to pnach files (HTML)
- How to convert pnach files (HTML)
- Cheat Engine Guide (HTML)

TOOLS (47 Tools)
Last update: 2015-05-06 (m3Zz)

Always read the "Readme.txt" or any other help file in each folder!
