Full Version: PCSX2Bonus - A PCSX2 launcher / frontend
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
First of all, great user interface, but that's probably all there is to it.
Secondly, i have a few complaint so pardon the shortcomings, I'm not trying to rant.

- What's the point of create .exe and noGUI options, it's gonna hang the process in the task manager either way when you exit the game, does anyone actually use those?
- Why so many extra steps needed to exit the program?
*Esc to close the game.
*Exit the pcsx2 app.
*Esc to exit tv mode.
*And finally close the program.

If the point of this application is to make pcsx2 usage easier, it's not doing a very good job is it.
Again, i don't mean to disrespect (criticism is good sometimes) the creator or the program, but why these awkward design choices...
in windows 8.1 doesn't work i can drag and drop games and if i drag and drop iso files of my backup dvd's the pcsx2bonus crash why┬┐?
I love what you have done, this program is a godsend and i love it.

@Canes the biggest advantage of this, at least to me and in my own opinion, is each game can have their own settings, with little to no effort, and then launching them game by game you don't need to go in and change it manually yourself. Very useful.
Thank Dexbonus for the grat app!

Maybe I did repeat, but...
I strongly ask you - PLEASE, add joypad and/or keyboard reassignable hotkey combination which will able to send command to PCSX2 to fully EXIT emulator (or even kill process) and get back to the Frontend window! Also, very handy will be hotkey that closes frontend fully.
Not having these options makes such great TV Mode almost inuseable!

The next wish:
Please, get rid off error that prevents to add modified ISOs (e.g. with custom or modified loaders without serial numbers) when scanning games directory. I have many localized game versions, and I need to add them manually via "mygames.xml" since the program can't recognize its serials or something else. You may add warning messages or red "Unknown" opposite cutom game's serial, but NOT prevent adding them!

Thanks, Psycho-A.
The latest SVN use .gzipped isos. Will you modify PCSX2 Bonus to also accept these?

I don't know if this has been asked yet. I only read(or is it red) back a few pages.

Is anyone else unable to run this with radeonpro active? everytime I try to run pcsx2bonus with radeonpro it doesn't do anything. occasionally it opens for a second and closes. when I shutdown radeonpro it opens and runs like normal.
i think i found a glitch in the game reconising of this
the game is [Playboy the Mansion SLUS-20988]

the mygames.xml shows this and keeps reverting back to it:

<Game>
<Serial>SLUS-20988</Serial>
<Name>NTSC-U</Name>
<Region>Compat = 5</Region>
<Compatibility>5</Compatibility>
<Location>D:\# Temp -DO NOT MESS WITH to be sorted-\(PS2 Stuff)\#PS2 Game iso#\Playboy Mansion\Playboy Mansion.iso</Location>

<ImagePath>C:\Users\my name\Desktop\PCSX2Bonus_v2\PCSX2Bonus\Images\NTSC-U.jpg</ImagePath>
</Game>

but it is soposed to be this:

<Game>
<Serial>SLUS-20988</Serial>
<Name>Playboy The Mansion</Name>
<Region>NTSC-U</Region>
<Compatibility>5</Compatibility>
<Location>D:\# Temp -DO NOT MESS WITH to be sorted-\(PS2 Stuff)\#PS2 Game iso#\Playboy Mansion\Playboy Mansion.iso</Location>

</Game>

[Update]
Found a work around for this issue
1. disable the download game info
2. make sure the program is closed
3. edit the mygames.xml file to have the correct info an save it overwriting the original file
4. open the program an manually set the cover art then close the program to save the changes
5. open the program and re-enable download game info
6. enjoy a corrected list with auto update of newly added games

I'm trying to add Gran Turismo 3 to the frontend, I've tried dragging and dropping the .iso of the game as well as adding it from the image file option on the menu. Neither is working. I know there's at least two distinct versions of the game, but the front end doesn't seem to recognize the 1.10 version i'm trying to add.

@JaredKFan

have you tried to add it to the mygames.xml manually?
you can use notepad++ to edit it or even the windows notepad
but notepad++ makes it easier to read an edit the file

example:

<Game>
<Serial>SLUS of the game</Serial>
<Name>name of game</Name>
<Region>game region</Region>
<Compatibility>5</Compatibility>
<Location>drive and folder an file of game iso</Location>

<ImagePath>drive and folder an file of game cover image</ImagePath>
</Game>
