PCSX2 will never officially support 246/256 because of legal issues but if this build comes out for play! then somebody can make a fork for pcsx2 adapting the code used here.

 

I was meaning the PCSX2 (better than PLAY! in my opinion) emulator not the PCSX2 team and by the way I mentioned the P2IO fork in this regard which in fact is not their job.

still it takes a lot of work .. jvs emulation and the atapi / ide management issue will not be easy to solve in a short time, but many are joining the work started by Jean-Philip, so we hope to become a beautiful and active community asap

Definitely a performance struggle there. Wonder what sort of specs you need to run this at full speed? PCSX2 would totally nail this!

The problem is in the emulator itself,it's still in early stages,Tekken 4 ps2 or arcade struggles with Play!

 

With PCSX2 it would be flawless.

Hi,

Fantastic progress, I didn't even expect these games to ever be emulated. Fingers crossed for JVS and Lightgun emulation.

I know that the JVS and control elements do not work yet.

 

Can someone explain how to create a launcher (elf) and use a memory card (security) with Emulator (Play)?

I can create a CD from CHD but I can't create Elf?

dont need elf.
you need arcadedefs files for booting games.

create CHD to CD and put in C:\Users\UsersName\Documents\Play Data Files\arcaderoms\(same methoud Mame Roms+CHD)

since last build the automatic insertion of .arcadedefs has been introduced with the installation of the program, but they can still be downloaded from here every time they are updated :

 

https://github.com/jpd002/Play-/tree/namco_system_2x6/arcadedefs

 

.arcadedefs are simple text files in which you can edit the name of the dongle, that one of the .chd and finally enter the exact name of the boot loader (which can be identified by means of a hexeditor in the dongle / rom)

The other games are definitely dumped. The Mame romset is almost complete. Nothing major is missing except the Taikono Tatsujin games. Here is the list of all the games:

Hi,

The emulator can be downloaded here: The current version is 18.10.22
 

https://purei.org/downloads.php

 

Chd and Dongle Key can be downloaded here:

https://mega.nz/#F!B0Rg1aZA!a-rG0ncKrmnXzKbJuyWVnw

chrome-extension://bigefpfhnfcobdlfbedofhhaibnlghod/mega/secure.html#folder/R0BgyQpC#x0dduZpWcn1oTMyvrjdhIw

It also contains a CMD program that will convert your CHD to CD or DVD.
These are not my games, I found them on the net


The dongle key already contains Mame roms: E.g. (rrvac.zip) 8 mb file is a dongle..

It doesn't work for us yet, I'm doing something wrong, either setting the components, so I can't give you more advice yet:

 

I must have set the wrong path to the correct folders, etc.. So I haven't been able to start it yet..

I have already tested all Roms CHD dongles.
sys256 games will not boot yet!
Some sys246 games have black screen. I think time to time it will be updated and fixed by Play!'s Dev.
I also tested JVS JAMMA I/O board unfortunately it is not working with Play. We should support jpd002 as much as possible to improve Play! .

that one is for Pcsx2 not for Play! 2x6 emulator .. you must compile yourself or download the right version from GitHub 2x6 fork action/build release 

 

Build Windows #1289

A lot of people asked me

and what’s the minimum specs needed?

Thanks

This is fantastic, after so many years of waiting, the dongle (memory card) is already emulated and JVS is already emulated (partially yet)

 

Thank you for the info
Great job

does it work on real ps2 hardware?

No, as the dongle tech is different from the PlayStation 2 memory cards and stuff. Since I do own the original arcade hardware myself, the hardware has differences like different BIOS and possibly a different SYSCON. Also they system has more RAM than a standard PS2. 
 

if only there was a way to load home brew to the 2X6, that would be hella cool!
