GS Error? Help Needed!
So I've been playing with the PCSX2t but it's pretty slow and now I've decided to try using PCSX2 which is supposedly slightly faster. My computer specs are:
AMD Athlon XP 3200+
1 GB RAM
ATI Radeon 9800
I know my computer doesn't support SSE2/3 so I am trying to use the non SSE2 version of the ZeroGS plugin. I get as far as loading up the emulator, that's all good but then I'll try starting up the game using Run CD/DVD and the Ps2 Output window will come up along with the game window itself. In about 5 seconds after it will crash quit but I've managed to save the error it displays in the Ps2 Output window. It goes something like this:
GS WARNING: Need independent write masks! Some z buffer effects might look bad
GS ERROR: Device doesn't support alpha blending for 16bit floating point targets
Quality will reduce.
Creating extra effects
GS Using pixel shaders ps_2_0
Using Frame Skipping: Normal

CPUID=2e20, BoardID=0, ROMGEN=2002-0207m 32m
Anyways I think that's as far as I get before it crashes it, all in 5 seconds or so. Like I said though I'm using the ZeroGS KOSMOS (non sse2) 0.96.0 plugin and I get this error almost immediately after starting up the game. If it makes any difference when I load up the emulator, the Ps2 Output will say somewhere plugins\GSdx9 sse2.dll: -1073741795. Gotta wonder if it's still referencing the SSE2 version of the plugin? I haven't checked for the latest updates on my ATI graphics card though so maybe that's it. Someone please help me out here, I really wanna know if I can run the VM build though I'm pretty confident my rig can handle it.

I think the VM version of PCSX2 doesn't work is you don't have SSE2, I mean, if your processor doesn't have SSE2, the VM version of PCSX2 will not work.
