Update PCSX2 to Version 1.6.0-rc
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

The current version in the repo is 1.4.0, which is almost 4 years old. The latest version, 1.6.0-rc, provided many fixes to games and is more stable over all. I have experienced issues in a few games with version 1.4.0, but are not present in 1.6.0-rc. Having the updated version in the repo will be fantastic and benefit us PS2 gamers. I would also like the note that the PCSX2 website still has the outdated release, the github is the best place to find the latest release.

PCSX2 1.6.0-rc

I'm working on an update right now. I am not sure if the team with allow this in the standard repos due to it being a release candidate, but seeing the progress for the PCSX2 team gives me a feeling it will be awhile until a stable release, so the team might allow this. Either way, i'm trying to get it to run right now. Will update you!

They should allow the RC or maybe make a separate package for it.

Probably because this is 32-bit and not 64-bit because the devs refuse to port it.

Regardless, this is a release candidate and not a full release. Given how many years it has been since the last actual release, we should wait until *after* 1.6.0 comes out to upgrade it.

welp, stable 1.6.0 is out, if anyone is interested. (I tried to build it myself but I don't know how to handle dependencies properly. btw, I can submit a new task.
