Converting ps1 Games To Eboots PSX To PSP

Here is our tutorial on how to play your Playstation 1 (PSX/PSOne) games on your PSP. There are two steps to the process.

1. Making a PSX ISO which we will later convert to an eboot (Skip this is you already have a PSX.iso)
2. Converting the ISO to an eboot. And making it look nice

Firstly if you haven’t already made an ISO image of your PSOne Game lets do that. For this example I’m using Resident Evil 2.

Top 25 Nintendo (NES) Games

Every one has a favorites list of games from their childhood and I’m no different. Being a child of the 80s I played a lot of Nintendo, a whole lot. The following is my top 25 games some are compulsory and some are little gems that just kept me entertained for hours.

25. Bad Dudes.
Bad Dudes

“Are you a bad enough dude to save the president?” Yes, yes I am. This game is on list only because I find the writing humorous. The 80s and 90s were filled with jems just like this, we lived in a world where games didn’t need to be good they just needed to exist and they were made by the boat load.

 
24. Hogans Ally

Hogans Ally   Hogans Ally was one of the very few games which made use of the light gun, Nintendo was great about coming up with accessories and new play methods but not very good at the time about prov...

Nintendo (NES) Emulator for PSP (NesterJ FCEU)

The need to download emulators dedicated to the NES is nearly compulsory; if you have lost the golden age of gaming you can rediscover a real milestone of console history on your PSP. I said emulators because there are many of them as such there is more than one for the psp as well. NesterJ and FCEU.

Nester J has a number of interesting features such as mirror mode and rewind mode which flips the play screen and allows you to “do over” on hard jumps or actions should you fail the first time around respectively, FCEU is very good and it was even recompiled to increase compatibility with games that use MMC Chip (such as FFVII hack, which doesn’t work on NESTERJ).

Nintendo 64 N64 Emulator for PSP (Daedalusx64)

What is Daedalusx64? It’s an , and with it’s 790th revision, this release brings about much more speed and compatibility then ever before. The N64 was a powerful system in it’s day competing with the Playstation 1.  It was originally believed that the PSP wouldn’t be able to handle emulating the N64 but with a lot of hard work from a number of programmers the project grew legs and really surprised people with it’s functionality and support. While the list of working games is fairly large the project is not yet complete and there are a number of games which don’t work on it. This should not detour you from giving this emulator a go on your PSP when you would like to play your N64 games on the go.

Daedalusx64 is still actively developed at the time of this posting, you can f...
