Update: (01/06/2012) I've decided to sell my Xperia play and discontinue all my work on the platform. Like SE, I lost interest in the Play because of the lack of games and a general lack of content. Also, I cannot stand Android anymore, especially SE's skin. I was looking forward for ICS, but after seeing SE put their skin on that too, I won't want to deal with it anymore. As for PSXperia, I have always released the source and documents for everything I release. I also have a few writeups on reverse engineering the psx emulator on my site. I will no longer be providing support for PSXperia and won't be managing the bug reports on github. Again, everything is open source and under GPL, so anyone can pick up where I left off (for example, improving the UI, future emulator compability, etc). I hope the project won't die!

Ok, so I decided to create a new thread for two reasons. First, I started that thread before I created PSXPeria to throw around ideas with developers and stuff, but now it's a beta test and I need feedback from regular users, not just developers. Secondly, not everyone can post in the developer section and not all users browse the developer section. So with a new release, I'll make a new thread. Hope the mods are ok with this.

Anyways, if you don't know what PSXPeria is, it's a tool that allows you to convert PSX games to work with Sony's emulator that is included with Crash Bandicoot. That way, you can play any PSX game using Sony's emulator.

How is this better than FPSE/psx4driod?
-PSXPeria is free and open source
-PSXPeria compresses ROMs
-PSXPeria supports the touchpads
-PSXPeria is SOMETIMES more compatible (and sometimes not)
-PSXPeria games show up in the playstation pocket app
-PSXPeria sometimes renders more smooth

What do I need to run PSXPeria Tool?

Something doesn't work? Read "Common Mistakes" on the Wiki. If that didn't solve your problem, you should file a bug report.

Compatibility
Sometimes, a game will work MUCH better (like from unplayable quality to perfect) if you enable software rendering. More details here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1220541
Also, help us fill our compatibility chart when you're testing games: https://github.com/yifanlu/PSXperia/wiki/Compatibility

Tablet S/P
I don't have a Sony Tablet, so I can't test anything tablet related. I'll try to write patches for the tablet's emulator but I have no idea if it works or not. If anyone wants to donate a sony tablet to me, I wouldn't mind developing for it more. (I also have some ideas for unlocking it that I want to try).

"This APK is not supported."
If you get this, I need to manually write a patch for that APK. Currently, I will only do this for Crash Bandicoot 1.0.3 and higher. Send me a copy of the APK and I'll include a patch for it in the next release.

You're in luck, I've just finished writing the patch for that APK. Will upload the update in a few minutes. For future references, if anyone gets that error, send me a copy of the APK or I can't write a patch for it.

does this work on 2.3.4?

Yes, if you use the Crash Bandicoot apk that came with 2.3.4.

Ok, this is weird. 1.0.3 USA works for me, but 1.0.3 EUR crashes. The java files are exactly the same and i've patched the native libraries. Someone needs to test the EUR version for me.

Beta Testing
Right now, PSXPeria 2.0 is BETA. That means everything won't be working properly. That's why I need YOUR help in getting everything working. When using PSXPeria, test for one or more of the following and post here if it worked or if you ran into any problems:
-Running the game on 2.3.3 with crash bandicoot 1.0.3 (extracted from 2.3.4)
-Running the game on 2.3.3 with crash bandicoot 1.0.1 (extracted from 2.3.3)
-Running the game on a tablet S and tablet P
-Using PSXPeria command line tool (nobody ever used this, it may not work at all, lol)
-Running the game on custom roms
-Comparing game quality generated from CB 1.0.3 with one generated with CB 1.0.1 (this can only be done on 2.3.3 systems).

"This APK is not supported."
If you get this, I need to manually write a patch for that APK. Currently, I will only do this for Crash Bandicoot 1.0.3 and higher. Send me a copy of the APK and I'll include a patch for it in the next release.


Good job man! You are the God!

Will help you test right after I finish dealing with my Big Cleaning House caused by the flood here in my country.

I desperately miss PSXPERIA!!!

Thanks to you.

    I won't be proving support, fixing bugs, or managing the github pages anymore. Sorry. If you want to take over the project, just fork the project on github and I'll redirect the page to the best branch.

    So, from the Twisted Metal APK, I got the list of "supported games" from that emulator (which I think should be the latest).

    Compare with the list I've found before: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=16746986&postcount=584

    Code:

    SCES_003.44
    SCUS_949.00
    SCUS_941.54
    SCES_009.67
    SCPS_100.51
    SCUS_944.23
    slus_005.94
    SLUS_014.85
    SCUS_943.06
    SLUS_001.13
    SLUS_001.70
    SLUS_005.51
    SLPS_012.22
    SLUS_000.06
    SLUS_004.10
    SCUS_942.27
    SCES_003.11
    SCES_014.92
    SCES_014.93
    SCES_014.94
    SCES_014.95
    SCPS_100.81
    SCUS_944.67
    SCUS_942.40
    SCES_019.10
    SCES_019.11

    SCUS_941.67
    SLES_011.56
    SCUS_943.08
    SCUS_943.58
    SCES_009.92
    SCES_010.00
    SCES_021.46
    SCPS_100.93
    SCUS_943.01
    SCES_000.10
    SCES_000.08
    SCES_000.03
    SCES_020.09
    SCES_020.10
    SCES_020.11
    SCES_020.12
    SCES_020.13
    SCPS_100.71
    SCPS_101.30
    SCUS_941.08
    SCPS_101.33
    SCPS_100.50

    It seems that support is added for 10 new games. Now, this hopefully means that the emulator has matured more and not that it was tweaked for those ten games.

    Ff7 will work with swapping save files. As before it asks you to switch, it asks you to save, and that save file acts as if it were a save on the next disk.

    if yifan lu has not updated psxperia yet for the uk just add this folder after extracting to the folder with psxperia extracted files these are the files needed from the us crash ban game then miss out extract go to convert.

    to all the issue between uploading apk or zpak both are copyright so both dodgy these files are only parts so hope more legal.

    to all that are still having problems with apks and zpaks just use this unzip place folder in the folder with psxperia tool saves downloading anything at all also would work for people that have no root all i see is the same issues coming up its the files you need to convert from the us crash.
