Thank you for releasing this.

Thank you for releasing this. You may need something like this in your launcher.ini so that the ISO directory (and any other path options changed by the user) will be updated if the the ePSXe folder is moved.

[FileWrite1]
Type=Replace
File=%PAL:DataDir%\settings\ePSXe.reg
Find=%PAL:LastPortableAppsBaseDir:DoubleBackslash%\\
Replace=%PAL:PortableAppsBaseDir:DoubleBackslash%\\

Also, the memory card directory is set to ..\..\Data\memcards but the launcher moves the memcards folder out of \Data\ and into \App\sPSXe right before starting the emulator.
Either changing the path to .\memcards in the default configuration or removing memcards=%PAL:AppDir%\ePSXe\memcards from [DirectoriesMove] in the launcher.ini would solve this.

I haven't pursued this, but plugin settings (at least the graphics ones) seem to be lost on each launch or reset.

Not the same

ePSXe is a Playstation (aka PS, PS1, PSX) emulator
ePSXe is an acronym for "enhanced PSX emulator"

PCSX2 is a Playstation 2 (PS2) emulator; it had a predecessor project, PCSX which is a PSX emulator
PCSX is a portmanteau of the acronyms: "PC" (Personal Computer) and "PSX" (Playstation)
PCSX-Reloaded is currently still being developed.

Also ePSXe is not open source, while PCSX and PCSX2 are GNU GPL.

Thanks you for the release. I have a question..

Hi guys.
I'm trying to make an individual portable psx game using this portable, but I have a problem:
How I can use Epsxe commands (nogui, slowboot, etc. ..) and path of iso in this portable version?
Command example: epsxe.exe -nogui isos\Rayman.bin

I'm not sure- the application

I'm not sure- the application is portable, though I've never used its command-line functions. I would imagine it would be fine, just using the ePSXe executable (NOT ePSXePortable.exe) as the application path? It's been a while since I've so much as looked at the project.

Don't do that

Using the program executable instead of the launcher completely bypasses all of the steps that make the program portable. It is the same as running the normal version of the program, meaning that registry changes remain on the computer and files are also likely to be left behind. Settings will not stay with the program if it is moved or run on another computer. The program's launcher takes care of all of that stuff, so you don't have to do it manually (moving and copying files to the right locations, altering paths inside configuration files, backing up registry settings and removing them, restoring registry settings from backup, etc.) If you wish to use the program executable directly without it's launcher, just download and install the normal version of the program.

It is not recommended to run the program executable directly.

Command line usage

To pass command line arguments, you must edit the application's launcher.ini (which is never actually named launcher.ini, but in this case would be named ePSXePortable.ini) The launcher.ini file can be found in: ePSXePortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher\

In the [Launch] section of ePSXePortable.ini, add a line for "CommandLineArguments=" (without the quotation marks) and after the equals (=) sign just put in whatever command line options you want to pass to the executable. You may need quotation marks around command line paths if they contain spaces. Something like this should work for you:


[Launch]
ProgramExecutable=ePSXe\ePSXe.exe
CommandLineArguments=-nogui isos\Rayman.bin
WorkingDirectory=%PAL:AppDir%\ePSXe
DirectoryMoveOK=yes
SinglePortableAppInstance=true
SingleAppInstance=true
SupportsUNC=no

...

Command line usage information can be found here: https://portableapps.com/manuals/PortableApps.comLauncher/ref/launcher.i...

Keep in mind, using certain commands or using command line options incorrectly can break portablility.

The folders move

To be clear, do not run the ePSXe executable directly.

When ePSXePortable is not running, the "games folder" is in: ePSXePortable\Data\isos

While ePSXePortable is running, the "games folder" is in: ePSXePortable\App\ePSXe\isos
(this is after you use the launcher but before you close the emulator.)

Nothing should be getting deleted, unless you are not closing the program properly or you are disconnecting your drive(s) in an unsafe manner. Doing either one of these things is a pretty sure fire way to destroy/corrupt/delete data on any type of writable drive. Don't close the xxxxxPortable.exe from task manager, always disconnect safely and wait for actions to be completed before physically disconnecting. Sometimes moving a bunch of folders (automatically, behind the scenes) takes a minute, so let it have time to complete.

Hello,

Hello,
Thanks for this nice portable app.
I tried it coupled it with another application (front-end) that launches it in command line with some parameters.
So I uses ePSXePortable.exe and did'nt modify "ePSXePortable.ini" as suggested.
It seems to work as it is, so it means that ePSXePortable.exe forward the parameters to ePSXe.exe
is it ok like that ?

Settings to Registry

What settings are being saved?
Are you using third-party plugins?

I need more information before I can help you.

Thank you, I needed a portable version that I did not have to configure every time I formatted the PC or used another, because I use it on a Pen Drive!
