separately and any updates will be available in our plugin download section. Other plugins like GStaris,GSmax or GSsoft will NOT appear in the graphics plugin list since their specifications are outdated andyou should not expect an update to them soon.
Select GSdx9 v0.10.8 and press the Configure button.
First of all GSdx9 comes in 2 versions,a normal one and an SSE2 one.
your processorsupports SSE2 (Pentium 4/Core Duo or Athlon64/FX) use the SSE2 version since it will be fasterfor you. Otherwise you must use the normal version or the plugin will NOT show up in the dropdown list. Both flavors, the SSE1 and the SSE2 are included in all PCSX2 v0.9.4 packs.
Attention (only for the old v9!):
GSdx9 v0.9.0 has a bug in both Fixed Pipeline and PixelShaders 1.1 which will cause
color corruption.These options are removed from v0.10 and onsince they are not supported anymore.
If your card does not support higher pixel shaders unforunately you will have color corruption inyour games.Resolution: In this drop-down menu you will be able to select "Windowed" if you want GSdx9 torun in a window, or choose the resolution/refresh rate you want for a full-screen displayRenderer: Here you can choose how the graphics will be rendered.By selecting "Direct3D",GSdx9 will use the Direct3D capabilities of your graphics card,boosting theemulation speed significantly. Also the compatibility of this mode is quite good,so it is higlyrecommended to use.By selecting "Software(float)" GSdx9 will use it's built-in sofware renderer,which will not use yourgraphics card at all, but your processor instead. This way the emulation speed is greatly reducedbut you get maximum compatibility. Recommended if you encounter graphics bugs with theDirect3D renderer.By selecting "Do not render" the plugin will simply not render anything, thus not giving any output onscreen. Use it only if you want to eg. Hear some music since with this mode you get a dramaticspeed increase.Shader: Here you will be able to choose between 2 options:If your graphics card doesnt support some of the modes,
they will not show up in the drop-downlist.
Pixel Shader 2.0: Will use Pixel Shaders v2.0, improving the graphics.Pixel Shader 3.0: Will use Pixel Shaders v3.0, improving the graphics. Highly recommened forgraphics card owners that have pixel shaders 3. Fast and compatible.Interlancing (F5): Here you are able to choose between None and 6 other interlancingtechniques,which are used to remove the "shaking" of the display.In parentheses you can see what kind of effect and maybe disadvantage (e.g. like the half FPS notein blend) each one of these modes have.You can cicle through them when running a game by pressing the F5 keyAspect Ratio (F6): Self explanatory, you can select stretch to stretch the display to get rid of the
