Title: Tenchu: Stealth Assassins
Region: NTSC
Format: iso
Emulator Version:1.0b2
Status: Works Well
CPU Speed: 700
Comments: Wanted to say it was working perfect but you can occasionally hear the sound drastically changing pitch for a moment or two. It also might run a little fast although I'm not 100% sure. Overall runs VERY well.

Title: Tenchu 2: Birth of The Stealth Assassins
Region: NTSC
Format: iso
Emulator Version:1.0b2
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 700
Comments: Runs pretty slow. Some might consider it playable. Other than that every thing looks nice. I couldn't find a single video glitch or hiccup.

Title: Tomba! 2
Region: NTSC
Format: iso
Emulator Version:1.0b2
Status: playable
CPU Speed: 700
Comments: Just like Tenchu 2, everything looks ok but it runs really slow.

Title: Brave Fencer Musashi
Region: NTSC
Format: iso
Emulator Version:1.0b2
Status: Works Well
CPU Speed: 700
Comments: Runs a little slow at times but it's still very playable.

I've tested the rest of my games, and I have to say that I'm incredibly surprised by the results I got with The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, above all the rest. :p

Title: Mega Man X5
Region: PAL
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Works well
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: The game's FMVs are played in this version, although their audio is slightly too slow, and is juddery. The XA format in-game music is slightly too slow and is juddery, also. The speed of the game seems to be correct now, although it sometimes slows down a little bit if there is a lot on-screen, or sometimes for no discernible reason at all (it does not do this on real hardware). Everything is a bit too dark.

Title: Mega Man X6
Region: NTSC-U
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Works well
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: The game's FMVs are played in this version, although their audio keeps changing in pitch, causing them to sound very weird. The XA format in-game music does this, also. The speed of the game seems to be correct now, although it sometimes slows down a little bit if there is a lot on-screen. If run with "Stretch fullscreen" turned off, it's disproportionately stretched in a "widescreen" sort of style. Everything is a bit too dark.

Title: Namco Museum Vol. 5
Region: PAL
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Works well
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: Some sprites/2D elements have alternating lines that appear to be shifted to the left or right, making them look as if they're underwater. The speed fluctuates a little bit in places, and it is often a tad too slow. The speed of streamed music will match the speed of the game, whilst XA format music is slightly too slow and is juddery.

Title: Rayman
Region: PAL
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Not working
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: After selecting what language you want to use, the game simply freezes at the Ubisoft logo.

Title: Spyro the Dragon
Region: PAL
Format: bin
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: The speed of the game and music is too slow, and the game drops frames like crazy. If run with "Stretch fullscreen" turned off, it's disproportionately stretched in a "widescreen" sort of style. The ground and the sky look strange in places, and there are sometimes gaps between polygons on the ground. The audio is badly out-of-sync during the title screen, and sometimes in cutscenes as well.

Title: Strider 2
Region: NTSC-U
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Works well
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: Some sprites/2D elements have alternating lines that appear to be shifted to the left or right, making them look as if they're underwater. The speed fluctuates in places. It is sometimes too slow.

Title: Tail Concerto
Region: NTSC-J
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: The game's FMVs run perfectly! This is the only game I've tested where the FMVs are not affected by the pitch of the audio changing at random, or by any slowness and judderiness. Some sprites/2D elements have alternating lines that appear to be shifted to the left or right, making them look as if they're underwater. The game runs just a little too slowly. The title screen music is not played, for some reason.

Title: The Adventure of Little Ralph
Region: NTSC-J
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: The in-game speed is far too slow, and so is the speed of the in-game music.

Title: The Misadventures of Tron Bonne
Region: PAL
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Not working
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: The boot-up FMVs get a bit mangled and corrupted, and their audio is slightly too slow and is juddery. The game can now get through the first several instances of dialogue correctly, until the point where Teisel Bonne calls Tron Bonne. After this, the dialogues do not trigger at all, and the sections where they would appear need to be skipped by pressing Start. Pausing the game now works correctly, and all of the pause screen's menus also work. Reaching the spot where a cutscene ensues prior to the first boss causes the game to drop to a black screen and never recover. To my knowledge, this is better than any other emulator on any platform currently runs this game.

Title: Tombi!
Region: PAL
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Not working
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: The audio in the game's FMVs is slightly too slow and is juddery. Whoopee Camp's logo, shown immediately after a short video showing it hopping around, is not displayed - only a white screen is visible. Some sprites/2D elements have alternating lines that appear to be shifted to the left or right, making them look as if they're underwater. When in-game, the speed of the game and the music are far too slow, the text is unreadable because it appears as corrupted red blocks, and when the first conversation in the game is over, the display does not get updated, even though the game can be heard as working in the background.

Title: Wild ARMs
Region: PAL
Format: bin/toc
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Not working
CPU Speed: 750MHz
Comments: Trying to start this game instantly crashes the emulator after the BIOS screens are displayed.

Hi there...I've tested some hockey games for the list:

Title: NHL ’97
Region: NTSC-U
Format: img
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Works well
CPU Speed: 800MHz
Comments: Almost perfect, maybe some slight audio sync issues in the videos.


Title: NHL ’98
Region: NTSC-U
Format: img
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 800MHz
Comments: Everything seems perfect, except if you select Quit from within a match, it freezes. Possible audio/video sync issues (opening movies, etc).


Title: NHL ’99
Region: NTSC-U
Format: img
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Not Working
CPU Speed: 800MHz
Comments: Intro videos play fine. Weird menu glitch: Menu graphics don’t change when advancing to next menu (stays at first menu graphic)...so, you can still hit buttons and choose options from the next menu (keep hitting START to get into a game), but you can’t see what you are choosing. In game hockey plays well though!


Title: NHL 2000
Region: NTSC-U
Format: bin
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 800MHz
Comments: Audio during intro video slightly changes pitch every few seconds. All text in menus is messy and unreadable. Gameplay seems too fast, causing glitches in play-by-play commentary. In-game graphics appear normal.


Title: NHL 2001
Region: NTSC-U
Format: bin
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Not working
CPU Speed: 800MHz
Comments: Audio during intro video slightly changes pitch every few seconds. Graphic glitches on first screen...hitting START starts a game, but first menu image is stuck on screen, so it’s unplayble. Commentary very glitchy and skipping.


Title: NHL Blades of Steel 2000
Region: NTSC-U
Format: img
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Not working
CPU Speed: 800MHz
Comments: Audio during intro video slightly changes pitch every few seconds. Gameplay appears fine, but it’s unplayably slow.


Title: NHL Breakaway ’98
Region: NTSC-U
Format: img
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 800MHz
Comments: Plays fairly good, although it seems like it speeds up when there are fewer players being rendered at one time.

You have good taste, this was one of the PS1's best titles(that very few have ever played).

It runs fairly good at about 800(a tad slow, but very playable). The sound is very glitchy, but the FMV runs well. I have not tried it in awhile, but I'm sure I tried it with the latest build. I have had audio hiccups on my PC in the past, so that is no big suprise.

Edit:
Just tried it again(at 800), and it runs full speed most of the time, but during explosions and a lot of action, the FPS takes a hit. The audio is actual pretty good, it stutters now and then, and has a little static, but is good overall. The imput seems laggy at times also. I would rate this about an 8.5 compared to the original.

Thanks for the great compatibility list. I am currently translating and copying it into the German wiki. :)

I'm sorry, I tried out at least 50 games last week, but didn't bother taking note off enough info for the list. I was pleasantly surprised at the rate of compatibility though, almost all my games at least ran, even though they might have been too slow or whatever.

Anyway, one thing I do remember is that Silent Hill PAL works in Beta 4 at least. There's a weird box around the player, but it does run and is playable I guess.



Also, somebody has messed up the list, from rows 77 to 119!

That's weird, last night it was messed up, like as if somebody had moved 4 columns to the left, but only in the range I mentioned.

Now it's ok again!

Thought I'd a few to the list.

Note: I am running these all at 800mhz, as this was a good setting for Mario in Mupen64 plus and will be used as a benchmark speed, as some folk have found their Pandora crashes with PSX4pandora above this. Beta 4 used for all. Please note these are all run from an ext HDD aswell, so upon an SD card results may differ.

Someone asked for the Rollcage games, faves of mine so.....

Title: Rollcage
Region: U
Format: .bin
Emulator Version:
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: Intro is fine. Loads to the menu screen then quits when a demo race begins :(

Title: Rollcage Stage II
Region: U
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: Beta 4
Status: Very Playable
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: Intro FMV and music is flawless. All in game menus flawless with sound. Mem card saves works. Game itself feels slightly under speed and can slow down at times, so remove the frame limiter and it is practically perfect. Some slight GFX errors on shields. Nubs and d-pad work very well. No in game music when racing :( . Very Nice otherwise!

note:(I am getting weird gfx in this game due to an LCD cable issue. Before that occurred, the GFX were spot on and should be for you.

Title: Pointblank
Region: NTSC-U
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Works
CPU Speed: 800mhz (less would be ample)
Comments: Intro FMV with sound is perfect. Game itself varies in sound speed but crashes during its demos and on trying to play.

Title: Pointblank 3
Region: NTSC-U
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Flawless
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: Flawless. Nubs and D pad work but touchscreen implementation if possible would make for a great time killer.

Title: Time Crisis
Region: U
Format: .img
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Works. Not playable.
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: As priorly reported. Fails at zip line, or at entry to any gameplay moment. Gameplay continues via sound only.

Title: Time Crisis II
Region: U
Format: .img
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Playable. Yay :)
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: All intro, menu etc work fine. Game also works but duck is mapped to L shoulder button and D-pad is best used, as L nub is too sensitive. X to fire. Needs touchscreen implementation for accurate shooting but flawless otherwise.

Title: Darkstone: Evil Reigns
Region: U
Format: .img
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Very Playable
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: Very smooth speed. Sound is very quiet but seems to work fine. Not a game I am familiar with but seems a nice Diablo stlye RPG.

Title: Batman Forever : The Arcade Game
Region: US
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Works but not playable
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: All intro and menus work. Demo mode crashes the game once a few hits have been taken. Menus work to configure controllers and remap buttons. Mem cards work in menu. L nub works fine. touching D pad quits to minimenu. ABXY work but after a few hits to you or enemies it crashes to minimenu. kinda like Super Smash Bros on Mupen64 perhaps?


Now the ones you've all been waiting for...

Title: Bob the Builder - Can we fix it
Region: US
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Sadly Playable
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: Its the US version, so the voices suck and the charm is lost. Intro FMV fluctates sound speed, so its more trippy than teletubbies. In game, Wendy's office offers various games for kids that work, if a little slow. Too taxing for me.

Title: Smurf Racer
Region: NTSC U
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: FMV intro cartoon is fine. Menus work fine with sound in sync. Demo mode fine. In game is a little slow. Remove frame limiter for a suprisingly nice Kart game! :)

N.b : For the Muppet fans out-there, please note that ELMO's math and word adventures work but slowly upon Mupen64plus. Sorry ED! :)

Edit : Correct some grammar and possible miss-interpretation.

I cant find PGA golf but Tiger Woods PGA tour golf of 98

Title: Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf
Region: NTSC U
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: All intro and demo mode is fine. Menus work fine. Gameplay has music and is perfectly in sync. Plays beautifully but I cant, so I spoiled the walk.


Title: Virtual Pool 3
Region: NTSC U
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Works but not playable.
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: Intro screens fine. Loads to menus with music. Locks up when you try to enter a game but the audio continues.

OFF TOPIC: That's a very big baguette but painted red white and blue it could represent some daily abuse we are all subject to. According to your interests this maybe equally fitting http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/894932/ (WARNING: LINKED VIDEO IS HIGHLY OFFENSIVE AND NOT FOR MINORS OR SYMBOL MINDED)

:)

Edit: @Gibberish. Sorry for the Status faults, possibly again on VP3. Re-Edit : Video warning.

For any footy fans out there, the best PS1 football game has been tested, and I'm glad to say it works pretty well!

Title: Pro Evolution Soccer 2
Region: PAL
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Works well
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: My version got stuck on the intro video a couple of times, just hit the start button to skip the intro and its fine.
For best results use 800mhz and scale fullscreen 'on' otherwise it looks scretched, also turn off 'frame limit' as it slows it down too much it seems.

Even after playing Pro Evo 2009 on my PS3 you can get straight into the action as all the controls seem the same place! Another top reason to own a Pandora now!

Edit: after a bit more playing i noticed changing camera to 'wide' slows it down quite a bit due to the amount of players on screen at once, so either change to frameskip 1/2 or just use one of the other camera angles as they run at the correct speeds.

A couple more. One works very well.

Title: Space Hulk : Vengeance of the Blood Angels
Region: U - NTSC
Format: .img
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Not working
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: Good FMV sequences with only slight audio speed changes lead to SEVERE sound issues once you get control of the menus. Hit circle and mute the music sharpish. In game, a strip on the right side of the screen tears away and the PSX Logo Bios Screen is beneath. This mars potential gameplay, as the speed is good and only audio glitches remain. Not playable.

Title: Soul of the Samurai
Region: U-NTSC
Format: .img
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Works Well
CPU Speed: 800mhz
Comments: FMV is all great bar slight audio speed changes. Menus fine. In game is practically perfect. Kind of Resident Tenchu,or PS1 Onimusha for any that don't know it.

Edit: Add full Space Hulk title.

Just noticed that Syphon Filter is not on the list. I tried all PAL Syphon Filter games(1,2 and 3) and none of them work :(

Also, Final fantasy 9(PAL) crashes when you get to the cutscene where you first board the airship (disk 1). Had to get past this in epsxe on windows, then transfer the save to my pandora. Now I'm on disk 2 and so far so good.

Title: Medal of Honor
Region: PAL
Format: .bin
Emulator Version: beta 4
Status: Playable
CPU Speed: 750
Comments: I cannot confirm that it works well. I tried to play the first map. It was way too dark (so I increased gamma of the LCD) and the map was torn off at some point. Like if it was supposed to load the next bit but did not. There were textured triangle faces leading into black void. When I returned to the spawnpoint the same thing was visible there.
