Homebrew Playstation 1 Emulator for PSP Released

This is the day that Sony had been fearing for a while, an alpha version of a Playstation 1 homebrew emulator has been released. So does this mean what you think it means? Yes, it does. You can now play Final Fantasy 7 wherever you wish!

This release was to be a Single Game release but AC contacted me today and changed his mind so thats great for you all, heres what he emailed me:

The wait is worth it. I’m releasing a version that will run anything. ISO, BIN, Z and ZNX.

The rest you know. scph1001.bin and images in the __SCE__ps1p directory.

This version has some compatibility problems which I plan to fix soon, for example the FF7 intro movie doesn’t run. You can play the game though, just get past the intro using a standard PC emulator (PCSX, ePSXe, …) and copy over the memory card file ( mcd001.mcr or mcd002.mcr).

Use L+R+ up/down to tweak the CPU timing.

I think L2 and R2 aren’t working at the moment too.

P.S.: to make things clear. This emulator has nothing to do with PCSX, psx4all or any other emulator already released. The only thing I did was use for the game selection screen, the same font code that psx4all uses–it’s from some GP2X demo/app.

It’s time to start ripping all those old Playstation 1 games and start enjoying them on the go!
