I just tried 3 Playstation games. The first was Coolboarders 2. It took four minutes for the game to load (blue bar). The second was Grand Theft Auto, which took a little over one minute. Then I tried Crash Bandicoot, which took five minutes to load. All three of them were sluggish and the sound was very choppy. I could sort of hear music and sound effects -- by "sort of hear", I mean they sounded like they were playing with a train passing closely between them and me.
They're technically playable now, so I guess that's progress.
McNamara I am glad to hear my fix at least allowed the games to LOAD.
Yes, they are too slow, with choppy sound. I am aware of that and I need to make deep changes to the way the website and emulator work in order to potentially make them fullspeed.
Cool boarders takes 147 Megabytes, so by a easy calculation rule, biggest games (one full CD of 600 megabytes) would take 20 minutes to load on a xDSL line like yours (I assume you are using xDSL for Internet).
Agreed, it's a lot, and putting 600 Megabytes games is probably not a so-good idea, but many games once compressed are below 400 Megs.
It's just occurred to me that I didn't test whether I could save or load, but I guess that can wait until the games are running more smoothly. Besides, given the long load times, any attempt at quicksaving and loading would likely crash my browser (that has happened a few times with other games, though it was during periods where everything else was slowed down).
I'm still skeptical as to whether they will ever work as smoothly as the other consoles hosted here do, but you've already pleasantly surprised me with your responsiveness and speed in fixing problems in just the few days I've been here. I'll check back here again. Let me know when you make any other changes and I'll test them some more.
so I tried playing a game called ape escape but the controls would not match up with the keyboard. I tried to move with the arrow keys but it would just move the camera the only thing I could really do is jump and switch weapons.
Komega can you explain better please the controls issue ?
when i turn on the game it asks for a dualshock controller. it still allows you to play but you cant move at all. the arrow keys only let you move the camera around. any other button just makes you crouch or switch weapons
Could u add megaman x4 and x5 plse?
Im stuck on start emulation on some games
5dtendw thanks for reporting, can you tell me which games please ?
Komega good finding, I'm not sure I have implemented Dual Shock properly. And some PSX games do require Dual Shock. My bad.
Szostak16 yes I have added Mega Man 8, Mega Man Legends 2, Mega Man X4, Mega Man X5, Mega Man X6, give a search for them. Beware X4/X5/X6 are big. Feel free to report any issue, I have not tested them (yet).
digimon world 1 catlsvania SOTN and final fantasy tacics
5dtendw which browser are you using ?
I have been able to reproduce the issue only in Internet Explorer. If so, please use Firefox or Chrome.
For some reason Microsoft decided to limit IE Flash memory limit to something really low, so big PSX games can't work on it.
ok. I wrote that message at a hotel off of my 3ds, so i couldn't check the games at the time, in case u had already added them when i asked. I will try either x4 or megaman 8 once I beat Xtreme 2. I just like the choices being there when i move on to the next game.
anyone who was requesting Jersey Devil, I added this one too.
Are u going 2 add the playstation spyro games?
could u also add beast wars: transmetals
Will look in Spyro, probably around 300 MB each, and will look into Beast Wars tonight, sure.
when i ever try to play a ps game it lags a lot is there any errors ( reply quickly
All games will work for me exept Castlevania Symphony of the Night.
admin i am still suffering lag whenever i press a button and release it on snes
NateTheGreat4H are you using IE by any chance ? If so, please try Firefox and Chrome. IE cannot run big PSX games.
supersonicwarriors I know sorry for the delay I will investigate this for sure ASAP.
tysone PSX is in beta we are all aware it's way too slow and I will put a better version online when it's ready.
In case u did not know, beast wars is a transformers series, so if u don't find it, try looking under transformers games.
does anyone else have a freezing problem when you press a button and the game lags? i am using a windows vista, and i am using chrome. i want it fixed, no spec stuff.
Coolmanlogical16 I want fixed it too but it's not easy as I am not able to reproduce, I need to figure out a way of reproducing.
Does it happen only on PSX ?
it happens on every system i've tried.
Ok thanks coolman, that does help me for debugging. Did you already gave me your PC specs (CPU, memory, OS, browser) ?
Hello, I've just recently found this website and am greatly enjoying playing classic games. Everything I've played runs great except ps1 games. I realize it is in the beta stages as of yet, but was just wondering what are the biggest bottlenecks that cause the seemingly slow frame rate when in game? I'm able to load the games fine, they just run too slow to be enjoyed is all.
My pc specs: cpu - amd fx 8350, ram - 8 GB ddr3 1600 MHz, OS - Windows 7 Ult. 64 bit and using Chrome. Also I have 75 mbps down 5 mbps up internet speeds.
Can you add persona 1 if you can?
LaCloud amazing computer, great internet, and welcome aboard !
There's no bottleneck on such a computer, it just shows this is the way I wrote it which is not efficient enough for Flash, I need to multithread it.

Tried playing Legend of Mana on the PS with Firefox. It took a while to load, very sluggish once I was in and froze a couple minutes into the game. I got past the point of selecting my character and naming it when it stopped.
Very sluggish here too, but it does go ingame for me.
Can you share your computer specs (CPU, memory) ? Use Speccy (google for it) to retrieve if you don't know.
admin, you forgot to look at my computers specs.
thanks for the games admin but wwf smackdown 2 and wwf war zone stuck on starting emulation
