Very glad to be here. Rediscovering the OG Xbox after many years. Used to have a couple, one modchipped and the other softmodded. I forgot how great they were.
Picked up a very nice condition 1.2 Xbox and recently and have now softmodded, TSOPed and flashed the bios so converted to a hardmod. Currently waiting on an IDE cable so that I can replace the tiny hard drive so I'll take the opportunity to explorethe forum and see what the latest developments are.
So I stumbled across the PS1 emulator for the original Xbox and I thought great. So I load it on a bunch of games and to my disappointment a lot of them did not run great. Game such a Silent Hill and Resident Evil some of the consoles best. The original Xbox could not handle some of the graphical demands the PS1 could deliver.
So I took it upon myself to see what is available to run good on pcsxbox v22b22
I loaded on an FTP over over a hundred original PS1 games. And I tested every single one over the course of a couple days. The results are in.
Now I know emulation is not perfected for the PS1 but I wanted to know what kind of a game list I could put together with what is available now
Surprisingly to see frames per second in some games did not matter. I am including frames per second in the list. But please look past it. This does not mean the game is not running good.. a game could be running as little as 10 or 12 frames per second and still be totally playable if you did not see the frames per second in the top left corner of the emulator..
Every game in this list below is totally playable on this emulator running 1.5 core version I did not change anything and I booted the cue file.
Here is the list of what has passed play ability test so far (dec 26 2017)
Batman Forever the arcade game - 20 FPS
Bomberman world - 30fps
Bust-a-move 99 -17fps
Bubble Bobble featuring rainbow Islands -45fps
Bust A Move 4 -17fps
Capcom vs SNK Millennium fight - 22fps
Castlevania Symphony of the Night -25fps
Doom - 13-15 fps
Evil Dead Hail to the King -30+ fps
Grand Theft Auto 1 -20+ fps
Guilty Gear - 12fps
King of Fighters 99 - 20fps
Megaman X3 -25 fps
Megaman X4 - 25 fps
Megaman X5 - 25fps
Megaman X6 - 25 fps
Mega Man 8 - 25 fps
Parappa the rapper - 12 fps
Marvel superheroes - 18 fps
Marvel vs. Capcom - 18 fps
R types - 25 fps
Strider - 20fps
Strider 2 - 20fps
Street Fighter Alpha 2 - 20 fps
Street Fighter Alpha 3 - 15 fps
Street Fighter collection -17 fps
Street Fighter collection 2 - 17fps
Super puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo - 25fps
Wild Arms - 15 fps
X-Men vs. Street Fighter - 20 fps
Tekken - 12 fps
I physically played and tested over 60 to 70 PS1 games. These are the games that made the cut. Please keep in mind even though the frames per second maybe low for some reason these games can pull it off. It seems to me like it can easily run side-scrolling type games. Or 2D Fighters very well. Eventually I will be adding more to this list as time goes by. If anyone wants to add any other games feel free below.
PS I know that there are lists that's a what this emulator can emulate. But I have actually tested these myself.
Thanks for reading and have a good day
