GPCS4 v0.2.0 released!

  • 704
  • 0
A PlayStation 4 emulator which was just started.

Nevertheless, GPCS4 could prove an interesting project to keep an eye on and Inori has also shared a planned roadmap on the project's GitHub page. You can also head there to find more details about GPCS4 or even try it out. For the latter, according to the GitHub page, you'll need "a CPU supporting AVX instruction set as well as a graphics card supporting Vulkan 1.3".

Changelog:
  1. Support simple compute shader, compute ring.
  2. Support cube map texture.
  3. Improve GCN compiler.

    • Supports multiple titles in a single file (e.g. a game combined with it's update and DLC)
    • Cemu can play them directly and display them in the game list
    • Uses compression, resulting in a smaller size than WUX or extracted folder format
    • Lossless, can be converted back to the original files
    • You can easily convert any of your games into .wua format via the Title...
