Actually PSX version doesn't have hot air effects on lava levels so they are also 256x192

What about in Mednafen?
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
386DX vs SX isn't about a missing FPU
DOS gaming isn't a bilinear 320x200 16:10
DOS PCs aren't better than the Macintosh
Old PCs aren't 'aesthetic'

Should be interesting to see in action, I've always heard that the PS1 version had a higher color depth but it's quite hard to tell in stills :(.

look at:
- whole left part of the waterfall under the bridge
- wall of the destroyed building
- grass over the boy's head

Nice observational skills, these all do tend to showcase the dithered PC palette. However, it seems like the PC version features somewhat higher quality backgrounds? For example, the destroyed hut beneath Andy seems far more compressed in the PS1 version. Could this just be ePSXe messing with the output?

Just zoom both pictures in separate tabs (turn off filtering) and ctrl-tab between them.
You will notice the difference almost everywhere.
