RetroArch PS3 v1.0.0.1 Released, Multi-System Emulator Updated


13w ago - Following up on the previous update, today RetroArch PS3 v1.0.0.1 is officially released from PlayStation 3 developers Squarepusher (aka Twinaphex) and piaf with details below.

Download: retroarch-ps3_v1_0_0_1-cex.zip (50.87 MB) / UP0001-SSNE10000_00-0000000000000001.pkg (Mirror) / retroarch-ps3-v1.0.0.1-dex.zip (176 MB) / RetroArch-v1.0.0.1-COBRA_ODE.zip (49.5 MB) by Mogwai / RetroArch 1.0.0.1 ghettobuild.iso by Argon (This is the version 1.0.0.1 GhettoBuild that I am currently running and unable to save/detect cores. I used aldostools to edit the param.sfo and disk.sfb)

Changes: PlayStation 3 - v1.0.0.1 - RetroArch.PS3.v1.0.0.1.FOR.DEX.PS3 Changelog

  • Added core info files - forgot to add them in v1.0.0.0 which made the Detect Core functionality not show up
  • Overlays should work now - these will play a big role in future versions
  • Menu controls now honor the 'O Button Behavior' from your PS3'S System Settings
  • (CURRENTLY BROKEN) - Analog to D-pad mapping





Note: If you installed v1.0.0.0 and received a disc required error or had to boot multiMAN first this new CEX resigned by piaf has remedied that issue.

This is a port of RetroArch to jailbroken / debug PlayStation 3. Cores currently supported:

  • Genesis Plus GX
  • SNES9x Next
  • VBA Next
  • NEStopia
  • FCEUmm
  • Mednafen PCE Fast
  • Mednafen NGP
  • Mednafen VB
  • Mednafen Wonderswan
  • MAME 2003 NEW!
  • Prboom
  • QuickNES
  • NX Engine (Cave Story)
  • Tyrquake
  • Final Burn Alpha
  • Gambatte

Finally, from Mogwai: Here's (linked above) a RetroArch v1.0.0.1 ISO that works for me on my super slim:

  • Put the retroarch folder including subfolders on USB stick/HD.
  • Put your ROMs in retroarch/roms folder.
  • Insert stick in USB slot 000 (the right most port closest to the optical drive)
  • Start RetroArch ISO

Things that should work:

  • Save game / save states
  • Core auto-detection
  • Going directly to roms folder in browser
  • Game history

Let me know if it works!

From FizzyBubblech: I tried it and it launched the first time, after exiting and relaunching it would return to the XMB. Also, why is the filesize smaller than the one aaa801 uploaded?

If you actually meant that you have this version, you seem to be mistaken. 6.60 Pro is a PSP firmware version. This emulator package is only for PS3, for which you need to be on 3.55 or lower firmware.
