edgbla's gpuBladeSoft

Hello everyone!

I don't know how many of you that are currently using ePSXe 1.8.0 along with edgbla's gpuBladeSoft v1.41 plugin today but it's a damn fine combination if you want to play Sony PlayStation games like you remembered them back in the old days.
It's one of the best GPU plugins to use in my opinion if you want a genuine PSX visual experience.

Lately I have been searching for updates for this plugin but came up short of finding anything relevant, v1.41 seems to be the "latest" according to Google.

However if you think outside the box and search for a higher version number it may return positive surprises.

Apperantly there is a v1.42a release that was released a couple of months after v1.41 but it wasn't totally officially released to the public, hence it didn't showed up here: http://emu-russia.net/en/files/plugins/psx/

I found a post made by edgbla, the creator himself in the emu-russia forums where he posted a download link to the 1.42a plugin: http://forum.emu-russia.net/viewtopic.php?p=16248#p16248

If you read around there you'll find out that apperantly it fixes all sorts of bugs, but most importantly it fixes the fullscreen bug that haunted and plauged v1.41 where the taskbar was visible. I have tested this for myself and it works great.

Here's the download link taken straight from his post: http://www.mediafire.com/?e3416tzabzmijiq

And if you never used the plugin before you're gonna need the GTK+ for Windows Runtime Environment from SourceForge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/gtk-win/

Remember to put the gpuBladeSoftGui.exe in the configs folder in ePSXe's root folder and the gpuBladeSoft.dll in the plugins folder.

If you want shaders and such I recommend to download v1.41 first from http://emu-russia.net/en/dl_files/p...ea3f494397eb/gpuBladeSoft-1.41-Windows-x86.7z and grab the shaders folder from it.


Just wanted to share this with you guys and gals, it's probably not the latest news by any means and some of you might already know about it since long but it may save some poor soul a little trouble.

Where did you got ePSXe 1.8.0 from? As far as I know it was never released, so it surely would be quite nice if you actually had it.

Last time I checked it was pending release... must have been a while back.

Thanks!

You're quite welcome!

For a second there you scared the jeepers out of me and I had to double check it myself even though I have been using it for months.

Anyway I highly recommend edgbla's plugin if you're a loyal user of ePSXe, you won't be dissapointed!

EDIT:

Apperantly there's a future release on the way and in the works judging by this screenshot showing v1.44
Can't wait till that comes out!

Hi.Can I activate this Z-Buffer option in any gpuBladeSoft plugin version other than this GPU soft plugin v1.44?.Thank you in advance.


PS:
I read on Nvidia 3d vision forum that this plugin could be used in stereoscopic 3d(the guy who posted this affirmed not to be sure of this).In fact,I found this option in the gpuBladeSoft.ini marked with 0(false),but after changing to 1(true) It had no effect.I think It`s bacause the Z-Buffer not working and there is no option for activate It in the 1.42a version of the plugin I could found.

windows 7 x64
Asus P8z77 m-pro
Intel i7 2700k
4gb ram
Gtx 660 ti

I know it's been well over past time since this thread saw any form of updates but here is a little something for those of you that still use ePSXe and this plugin even today.

I'm attaching edgbla's gpuBladeSoft v1.46, in the archive, plugin wise at least you will find everything you'll need (hopefully)

edgbla's gpuBladeSoft v1.46 is relying on the GTK 3 runtime for windows 32 & 64 so make sure to install that.

I haven't tested this myself so I can't speak for whether it's working or not as I only use Mednafen PSX these days.

Anyway good luck!
