Frequently Asked Question
What is RPCSX?
RPCSX is an experimental emulator designed for playing PS4 games, and there are plans to expand its compatibility to include PS5 games in the future. Keep in mind that it’s an ongoing development project.
Can I use RPCSX to play Bloodborne?
Unfortunately, Bloodborne is not currently supported by RPCSX.
Can I run RPCSX on a Windows operating system?
No, RPCSX is currently exclusive to the Linux platform. However, there may be potential changes in the future to accommodate Windows users since the majority of users are on Windows.
How does the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) come into play?
There have been no confirmed cases of RPCSX successfully running on WSL. Additionally, the official Vulkan build for WSL lacks the necessary features. Moreover, the lack of essential graphics drivers for WSL means that rendering capabilities are limited to CPU usage. It’s worth mentioning that there’s an experimental shared-memory CUDA driver for WSL, primarily intended for TensorFlow/PyTorch applications. Advanced users might explore integrating this with Vulkan, but it’s not a standardized solution.
Where can I connect with developers and the community?
For discussions with developers and fellow community members, head over to the project’s Discord server.
How can I contribute?
If you’re interested in contributing, you can find the project roadmap on the Discord server mentioned earlier, and the project’s repository is hosted on GitHub, where you can actively participate in its development.
