PlayStation 3 emulator RPCS3 shows off big game fixes

By - | Views: 19,253

RPCS3 continues advancing to truly nail-down the experience of playing classic PlayStation 3 games emulated on modern platforms and a fresh video shows lots of fun.

This new update includes various graphical glitch fixes for Uncharted 2 and 3, The Last of Us and multiple Ratchet & Clank games. Not only that, their team also worked on uncapping the framerates in Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty, and A Crack in Time with other games in the Ratchet & Clank series being able to have no in-game limit as well.

From the video description:

Recently, kd-11 improved RPCS3's immediate mode rendering and linear cubemap decoding which fixed broken lighting in many Insomniac games, and fixed dynamic shadows in Naughty Dog games and a handful of other titles. Along with kd-11's work, patch guru @illusion has been busy creating patches to uncap the framerates in Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty, and A Crack in Time. As for the rest of the Ratchet and Clank games, increasing VBlank will uncap the frame limit on it's own, so you can enjoy the whole series with no in-game frame limit! If you want to learn more about VBlank, check out this video:

Some truly exceptional work being done on RPCS3, especially when you take into account their previous announcement back in October about it now booting every game (not all playable though).

Quoting: Purple Library GuyThis won't happen.
But, wouldn't it be cool if this were installed on the Steam Deck by default, Valve could get some of the developers of these games to put them up for sale on Steam (just ones that work pretty well), and the games kind-of-automatically used this the way Windows games use Proton, or at least it could be picked as an option like Boxtron? Maybe with a game-view option that would let you look through just PS3 games if you wanted?
You have no idea how much I'd love to see something like this. We've gotten emulated games from Sega and a few others, but to have companies acknowledging emulators for modern systems by selling games wrapped in said emulators, that would be epic.
