    Rtype a developer from PSX Scene has compiled Hatari for the PS3, Hatari is an Atari Emulator, here is a quote from the read me:


    A Lame hatari 1.6.1 DBG release for PS3.


    What?: A quick port of hatari 1.6.1 to ps3 using PSL1GHTV2.
    Why? : Because i like old atari computer :)
    Who? : Rtype

    So far ,i ve just compil the lastest hatari src (1.6.1) with psl1ghtv2 (SDL used) and i only make few hacks to done it work (a little) .
    All the credit to the HATARI TEAM ( http://hatari.tuxfamily.org ) and to the PS3DEV team .


    Know Problems:

    - Works only with a keyboard & a mouse cnx to the ps3 !

    - Some pb with SDL1.2 hatari code (ex: code Keysym 1.2 different from 1.3) so i make quick dirty hack , not all the keys are working
    and it’s seem to break a lot keyrepeat .

    - Hatari & sdlgui use partial screen update , and PS3 SDL don’t have hardware cursor code , so i make another quick & very bad hack to
    show something we can call a mouse pointer (hum i know it’s a square) and force the gui redraw , this make the gui very bad and slow,
    and there is a big lag between mouse action and screen update. Apologize for this.

    - In fullscreen mode Gui seem not working correctly so change to desktop mode if needed.

    - XMB seem to freeze PS3 when calling from home button so exit from the gui or AltGr-Q combo.

    - I ve not tested all the option , just few games , so maybe other pb around …

    Sorry for all this problems but i hope you enjoy anyway ( i mean Atari lovers ) somes old good games .


    Quick Install & Start:

    - Create somes dir in /dev_hdd0/ :

    /dev_hdd0/HOMEBREW and /dev_hdd0/HOMEBREW/ST/ and /dev_hdd0/HOMEBREW/ST/TOS/ and /dev_hdd0/HOMEBREW/ST/CONF/

    - Put a valid tos named “rom” in:


    - Put some ST/MSA dsk in :


    - Install the pkg .



    works only with a keyboard & a mouse !
    joystick:LSTICK= JOY MOVE CROSS= Button1 SQUARE= button2

    Coveman has released Open PS2 Loader for Cobra USB, to quote:

    * You don’t need SWAP MAGIC
    * You don’t need any optical disc at all in your PS3
    * Works on PS3 non-BC (tested on my SLIM) (CobraUSB required)

    I created an “Open PS2 Loader” ISO file, so you can just load it from Cobra Manager or multiMAN.

    Just extract the .rar and transfer it to your internal HDD to /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO

    I included the cover so you can either put it in /covers_retro/psx/SLES_806.08_COV.JPG or rename it to “Open PS2 Loader.jpg” and put it along side the ISO in PS2ISO foler.


    Note: This only works with CobraUSB Dongle

    ScummVM has been massivley updated in celebrations of their 10 year anniversary.

    To quote:

    It has been over 10 years. We are here thanks to the work of 131 developers. 49,124 commits were made just to the ScummVM tree and those turned into a massive 1,085,714 lines of code (excluding comments) and of course over 7.6 million downloads from the main site alone. I would say those were a great ten years.

    The outcome is ScummVM 1.4.0 which we are releasing today, 11/11/11 11:11:11.11.

    More games are supported: Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos (based on the same engine as Kyrandia), the kids’ game Blue’s Birthday Adventure, and the science fiction game Ringworld: Revenge of the Patriarch. On top of that, practically all supported Sierra SCI games now have their Amiga versions working. Our musically inclined users will notice PC speaker support in Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge and Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, CMS support in LoomThe Secret of Monkey Island and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, fixed MIDI in the DOS versions of the Elvira series, and even sound in Winnie the Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood!

    It supports up to 7-players and well you can fly and shoot & bumb each other. With sound from hermes’ soundlib and graphics from Jetmen Revival.

    If you would like to see the code or for questions, email me at yvrig3 AT gmail.com.

    With the new “break through’s” this week, one of them being PS1 backups running on the PS3, utilizing multiMAN’s filemanager, deank decided to implement this method into the games column of his application, here is the change log, make a note, the changes are the total from 02.07.00 to 02.08.00.

    * Added: “Create ISO” option in SIDE menu when BD/DVD is selected in VIDEO column or PLAYSTATION/PLAYSTATION2 is selected in Game column
    * Added: “Create ISO” option in File Manager’s context menu when /dev_bdvd is selected
    * Added: Creating ISO files bigger than 4GB to USB HDD will result in splitting in segments .iso.0, .iso.1 … .iso.31
    * Added: Advanced option in XMMB Settings: “Expand Contents of XMMB media columns”
    * Added: SD/SDHC, CF and MS/MSPRO devices to Photo/Music/Video columns
    * Added: Standalone Web-Browser application with FTP (BROWSER.SELF) to avoid all memory issues
    * Added: Support for launching PSX games from CD-R discs (XMMB Game Column and other display modes)
    * Added: Launching directly ps1_emu.self or ps1_netemu.self from file manager will make multiMAN assign your Memory Cards properly, too
    * Added: Options to set preferred Video Mode for PAL and NTSC PSX titles (default/480/576/720/1080)
    * Added: peeklv1 and pokelv1 commands to control console
    * Added: String printout for peekl and peeklv1 control console commands
    * Added: Prompt to dump Hypervisor/LV1 after creating GameOS/LV1 memory dump
    * Changed: Improved the looks of the old debug font, used in some dialogs and file manager
    * Changed: multiMAN starts faster now
    * Fixed: Unnecessary auto-refresh/scan for content on each startup
    * Fixed: Browsing for ROMS in ZIP format

    All features related to PSX discs require firmware 3.55 (kmeaw/rebug).


    At the moment, the update is online via PS3 only, the full version will be uploaded here.

    To play PS1 discs you must be on 3.55CFW and use PS1 backup burned to CD-R disc (using bin+cue as source in IMAGE BURNING mode). It doesn’t work for PS2 games. It doesn’t work for PSP games. You can’t mount an ISO from the HDD.

    UPDATE 1:

    Another quick update to multiMAN:

    * Improved detection of PSX discs (reading one sector to verify region/type)
    * Detection of possible user-errors when editing options.ini
    * Removed copying options.ini/options_default.ini from connected usb drives during startup

    One of our dedicated developers samson, has released a dos port of Tempest 2000 for the PS3, here is a quote from his thread:

    A member ps3hax mappy123 requested a port of the classic Tempest 2000, i figured yeah what the hell.. started working on the dos version last night and was very pleased with how well it runs on the ps3 using dosbox, so i decided as it was a retro gem to give it some nice xmb wallpaper and music..

    press r3 at start up for joystick, exit via ps button.

    credit go’s to the atari game dev’s and robo hobo for porting dosbox, and gliitch for helping me with the xmb music. and last but not least mappy123 for the idea

    enjoy and be kind with your comments , its my first game port and its also been made in a day.

    Download Tempest 2000 3.41.pkg
    Download Tempest 2000 3.55.pkg

    Another project samson has been working on, which i completely forgot about(sorry samson), is “webcuts” , which is a bunch of webtools on your XMB, you can find that here.

    Team Emulatemii has given us an update to their N64 emulator. They’ve recently stated that the N64 emulator is nearing completion, and after fixing a couple of minor errors, it will be released. However they do say that they’re also busy with other things, so it is progressing at a low pace.

    The Wii64 port to PS3 now has a near-complete hardware renderer since our last post. However, the dynarec needs some work to run on a 64bit PPC architecture. The Pure Interpreter core has little (if any) performance increase over the Wii running the same core, so PS364 really needs the dynarec.

    Great news indeed. Stay tuned for more exciting updates with us @PS3hax :)

    PCE Emu, now here is an emulator we haven’t heard anything about in a good while.  Well, it is now at V1.40. Here’s some info of what this emulator is about for those who may have forgot or those who haven’t heard of this great emulator yet.

    PCE.emu is a PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 emulator written in C++ for Android, iOS, WebOS and PS3. It uses the emulation backend from Mednafen and is built on top of the Imagine engine. The source is released under the GPLv3 license.

    Main Features:

    Accurate emulation and high compatibility rate (Note: Data swapped TG16 roms are not supported, see known issues below for a fix if you’re getting a black screen on load)
    Backup memory and save state support, auto-save and ten manual slots for save states
    Supports ROM-based games in .pce and .sgx formats, optionally in .zip files
    CD emulation via loading CUE or TOC+BIN files (select a system card rom in the options, for versions <= 1.3.0: place syscard.pce in same directory as CUE file)

    About Save Games:

    A standard .sav file is created for games using internal battery backup memory
    Save states are named .ncq for the auto-save slot, and .ncX where X is the slot number for manual saves.

    Performance Notes (as of version 1.3.0):

    PS3: 60fps with hucards & CDs.

    PS3 Controls

    D-pad : navigate menus (Up & Down), Left to go up a directory in file picker, Right to select *highlighted entry
    Cross : confirm/select menu entry, Button I
    Circle : cancel menu entry/go back, Button II
    Select : Select
    Start: Run
    L2 : open/dismiss menu
    R2 : Fast-forward

    Currently known issues/bugs:

    No international character support in gui
    Not really a bug, but when running on a case-sensitive file system make sure your CUE file *specifies references in the same case as on the file system.
    PS3: sound is not synced properly, causes slight distortion in the audio

    PCE Emu Version 1.4.0 Changelog:

    Note: The config file format has changed and all options should reset automatically, in case of issues delete the config file manually
    Recent Games list added to the main menu, stores the last 10 games played.
    On-screen fast forward hot-spot now acts as an on/off toggle
    MD: Master System support
    MD: SVP support for Virtua Racing (Note: you need a very fast device for this)
    PCE: Updated PS3 port with multi-controller support and fixes for external audio tracks on CD games

    Download PCEemu for 3.41
    Download PCEemu for 3.55 CFW

    We all know deank is probably the most dedicated PS3 Developer there is on the PS3 Scene, whether it be big updates, or minor updates, he is always working on multiMAN, today he releases version 02.07.00 which is a huge update, here is a quote from the change log:

    * Added: LV2 access rights to use LV1 Storage Manager (syscall 864)
    * Added: LV1 patch for user access to sys_storage functions (syscalls 600 to 623)

    * The above two for regular users mean:

    * Thanks to graf_chokolo and the SACD-Ripper guys!

    * -> Access to all types of optical discs inside multiMAN (file/folder mode):
    * -> Copy/Backup of Blu-ray Movie Discs (decryption may be required on PC) (previously possible only via OtherOS)
    * -> Copy/Backup of DVD-Video discs (decryption may be required on PC)
    * -> Copy/Backup of PSX and Playstation 2 Discs
    * -> Access to AACSMKB_RO.inf on a Blu-ray movie disc to restore lost DRL1/DRL2
    * -> Direct playback of movies/music (avi, mkv, etc) from BD-R/BD-RE/DVD-R/DVD-RW via Showtime for multiMAN

    That’s about it. In short it means that you can now access and copy files/folders from any optical disc (be it to rip a blu-ray movie or transfer a backup of PS3 game from DVD or BDR to your ps3, watch videos in Showtime, etc)

    The download is yet not available, but will be released later today.

    UPDATE 1:

    Please update to 02.07.01 if you installed 02.07.00.

    The link below will take you to the updated with links to 02.07.01 UPD/BASE/FULL.

    There was an issue, which caused some games to error out with weird messages (because of the storage manager intervention). Sorry about that.

    You can also update online to 02.07.01.

    Deank as always, is working hard on bringing improvements to his awesome piece of Homebrew, this minor update, removes the old FTP sever and implements jjolano’s OpenPS3FTP, here is a quote from the source:

    * Changed: Implemented OpenPS3FTP by jjolano and removed the old buggy FTP server (faster transfer speeds and no path/file length limitations)

    This should clear most of the FTP problems multiMAN had. Transfer speed is now faster, you can use 8-16 simultaneous file transfers, and the problem with long path and file names is gone now.

    The implementation of openps3ftp is based on older version from jjolano, but still is much much better than what multiMAN had until now, so big thanks to him!
