PCSX2 1.7.3581 on Windows 7 and 8

Unread post by K4sum1 »

If you have Windows 8.1, this is also the last version for you, you just don't need to do anything.

If you use Windows 7 or 8.0, there are two methods. I'll be using the wxWidgets release for this, but if you're insane, you can use the QT6 release with the modded 6.3.1 dlls.

Get the wxWidgets release of PCSX2 1.7.3581 from here https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2/releases/tag/v1.7.3581

Method 1:
Download ReShade from https://reshade.me/#download
Install ReShade for PCSX2 for DirectX 10/11/12

Method 2:
Extract the .7z
Open pcsx2x64.exe with CFF Explorer or a hex editor, the next few steps can be done with either CFF Explorer or a hex editor

For CFF Explorer, go to import directory, dxgi.dll, and double click CreateDXGIFactory2, and remove the 2 from the end


For a hex editor, search for the hex 43 72 65 61 74 65 44 58 47 49 46 61 63 74 6F 72 79 32
Change 32 to 00

For method 2, you can't use DX11, if you want to use DX11, you'll need to use method 1.
