GS plugin failed to open
#1
I am gettting this error:

"GS plugin failed to open. Your computer may have insufficient resources, or incompatible hardware/drivers."

I am using Manjaro (an Arch-based distro), 32-bit system.

I checked with glxinfo, and support for OpenGL 3.3 seems to be in place:

Code:

What can be the problem?

Well your driver only supports up to OpenGL 3.3, IDK if that's enough. Could you update it? (Your graphics card looks old, so be careful!)
Probably try to use another GS-plugin?

Aside from your problems, you probably won't be able to use PCSX2 in a sane manner, because your CPU is too slow, 1600STR is minimum recommended, you have around 1400 See here: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu...re&id=1814 and here the recommendation: https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2#system-requirements
Tired of always changing your PCSX2 Configuration for different games?

It's the latest driver available. And as far as I understand, 3.3 should be enough: after all, the log doesn't say "Check your drivers support openGL > 3.3", it says "Check your drivers support openGL 3.3". It would be nice if one of the developers clarified if I'm right.

> Probably try to use another GS-plugin?

As far as I understand, libGSdx is the only GS-plugin for Linux. Or am I wrong?

Alas, it's true Sad But since I wanted to try and launch only Broken Sword 3, and it's an adventure, I was hoping that it would feel okay even if the game was slowish.

I don't know how and where these messages are created, so can't tell anything reliable about that. It's also possible that your card is just too weak/old (lacking VRAM, for example). There are unfortunately no Graphics card reommendadtions on the Github page, but I saw here that a GTX 1060 was recommended a few times. Compared with yours https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/compa...0/60vs3548 it states clearly that there's a huge gap.

Open PCSX2, Click on Config->Plugin/Bios Selector. Here you should have different GS-Plugins.

Well if you get it to work, you can try it ofc, but don't expect too much.

By the way (This is probably not related to your problem), since you're on manjaro, why is your kernel that old (4.19 as in your log)? Shouldn't you have something more recent like 5.4 or even 5.5?

Well, probably it is the graphics card then.

Yes, that's where I looked, and it's the only one there.

Yes, the kernel 5.4 is available, and I even installed it, but there are no NVidia drivers for it yet Smile Last time I checked they were only in Arch testing or unstable, and Manjaro stable is behind Arch stable. So if I reboot with the 5.4 kernel, I'm in plain console Smile So I stay on 4.19.

You're probably not offered more options because your CPU's missing newer instruction sets. Anyway, seems your system is too weak/old to handle PCSX2, unfortunately.
