Images used for the guide, many thanks to SHunter!

Here are some screenshots that I took showing the PCSX2 1.2.1 GUI:

I certainly will. Thank you very much sir. DoctorMuerte (talk) 09:56, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
I've made screenchots for the installer and the configuration wizard, but they doesn't look like the ones you uploaded. What windows decoration did you use? I need to make new ones.

Here's my window color settings:


I recommend using Greenshot to take screens.Using Greenshot you can capture windows and preserve the transparency of the window's border (You have to enable "Preserve Transparency" in the settings).

I've updated all the images, if you need more screens let me know. --SHunter(Talk) 5:00, 11/22/2014 (GMT-6)

Thank you very much. The screen shots look much better now.

Small correction made by Ryudo, thanks!


Made a small correction on one of the folder names for you in the guide. It was the cheats_ws folder that you mentioned and that cheats were being stored there.

/cheats_ws is for widescreen patches.
/cheats is for the cheats.

Thanks! DoctorMuerte (talk) 07:50, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

Things I'm gonna need help with:

  • As English is not my native language, I'm gonna need somebody else to read and/or correct the sections : 1, 2, 3 and 9, to to make sure its written on an appropiate English grammar and syntax.
  • Somebody to tell me the advantages of using the web installer, if any.
  • Is there anything that need to be copied from the old guide?
  • About images I've uploaded:
I can help you with that, use <span> or <div> tags with special styles

this is how you can do that Minilogo.png

I will not help much with the articles though. My English is not that good also. But I'll read them, alright.
You can delete my little invasion when you no longer need it. --Ngng (talk) 16:27, 22 November 2014 (UTC)
Many thanks, I'm gonna study that code. DoctorMuerte (talk) 07:50, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Find something to place on the right side of the Table of contents, that empty space doesn't look good at all.
  • (Done) Decide if the sub-sections should look like this:



or like this:



  • Any other suggestions are very much appreciated.
  • Do you guys like the "Tips" sections? (look the end of 3.1, and at 5.1.1) Do you like it with a bulb icon or something? DoctorMuerte (talk) 11:29, 24 November 2014 (UTC)

I think a lightbulb makes the tip section look a bit better:

Remember that the savestates made with a certain version of PSCX2 won't be compatible with other versions of the emulator.
Save your game's progress on the memory cards before updating PCSX2!.

It look better indeed, thanks for uploading. I've uploaded a new version, with a blue tone, do you think it will look better, or should we keep the old version? DoctorMuerte (talk) 23:37, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
I've made it a bit taller to see if it fits the text. Please tell me your opinion about it. DoctorMuerte (talk) 00:44, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
One more test before going to sleep:

I think the lightbulb version is nicer looking. The pcsx2 logo looks a bit out of place for a tip thingy. Ryudo (talk) 09:34, 25 November 2014 (UTC)
  • I need to find the proper way to enclose the TIPS and WARNINGS sections, the idea is to have that text in a grayed colored box, but the way I do it doest´t respect text alignment, and I'm sure I'm not doing it the proper way. Can someone help me out with how to do it? , Please look at this pagewhere it sais "How does this works?:
