PCSX4ALL (15-06-2016) (PSX emu for GWCZ)

PCSX4ALL is a port of the Playstation emulator PCSX by dmitry_smagin for the GWC Zero. A PSX bios is required, but it does not come with the pack and we don’t know either where to get. Please read the instructions very careful.


– Fixed root counters code (taken from pcsx_rearmed), this improved timings and made the whole emulation more accurate. As a result, input is no more getting stuck occasionally in Cotton and Metal Slug X. (senquack)

ScummVM v1.8.1 (misc)

ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

Some of the adventures ScummVM supports include Adventure Soft’s Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2; Revolution’s Beneath A Steel Sky, Broken Sword 1 and Broken Sword 2; Flight of the Amazon Queen; Wyrmkeep’s Inherit the Earth; Coktel Vision’s Gobliiins; Westwood Studios’ The Legend of Kyrandia and games based on LucasArts’ SCUMM (Script Creation Utility for Maniac Mansion) system such as Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, Sam and Max and more. You can find a thorough list with details on which games are supported and how well on the compatibility page. ScummVM is continually improving, so check back often.
