PCSX2 now 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 instructionsgiven (type your account user name, log off/on and restart). If the program still fails to allocate the memory,simply use the TLB version and dont worry the speed difference is not that great. The VM version is said tonot work properly with systems not having Service Pack 2 installed, or XP Home but it is not limited to those,so if you want to save yourself from the trouble just use the TLB one.This is the main GUI (Graphical User Interface) of PCSX2. From here you can change the settings or pluginsused by PCSX2 as you see fit. Go to Config=>Configure to start configuring PCSX2. You'll see a screen likethis (click to enlarge):First off you can use the Set Plugins Directory and Set Bios Directory to change the directory from whichPCSX2 loads its plugins and bios respectively. So if you are not using the default directories (/plugins and/bios) you should use these buttons to change them. The Configuration,Test and About buttons that you seeunder each plugin section are for Configuring the selected plugin,testing if a selected plugin works (kind of obsolete since if it shows up in the list it will work) and for checking out some info about the selected plugin. Now let's continue onto the actual plugin configuring.
What version of pixel shaders does your graphics card support?
Check this link GPU Databaseto check. (thanks to Nachbrenner)For the time being you will be able to use the ZeroGS v0.97.0 plugin (from pcsx2 pluginssection), which is anew DirectX 9 graphics plugin
that requires a graphics card that supports pixel shaders 2 to work.
GSdx9 at v0.10.8 (at the time of writing this), another DirectX 9 based plugin by Gabest which recently gotgreatly improved in both speed and image quality
requires pixel shaders 2 to work as well now.
Both of these plugins are included in all PCSX2 v0.9.4 packs so you won't have to download them separately and anyupdates will be available in our plugin download section. Other plugins like GStaris, GSmax or GSsoft will NOT appear in the graphics plugin list since their specifications are outdated and you should not expect anupdate to them soon.
Select GSdx9 v0.10.8 and press the Configure button.
First of all GSdx9 comes in 2 versions,a normal one and an SSE2 one.
your processor supportsSSE2 (Pentium 4/Core Duo or Athlon64/FX) use the SSE2 version since it will be faster for you.Otherwise you must use the normal version or the plugin will NOT show up in the drop down list. Both
