Random Linux

Linux, video games and web hosting

Linux up until the past few years has been left out of the emulators market as far as availability luckily this has change and now there are ports of almost every major system emulator including some emulators that are written strictly for the linux operating system, the following site has a nearly complete list of all emulators that are available through the Ubuntu package manager and what repository they are in, The site is also slowly adding source files that can be compiled on any other linux distribution.

One of the operators of pspslimhacks.com has built an installer for the just released PSP MAME4ALL v4.9r2 Hires . This installer will easily install the files needed to get playing your favorite MAME arcade games. This is for the PSP Slim cfw 3.xx+ All that’s required your end is to point the installer to your PSP memory stick and then copy roms to the rom folder of this installation on your Playstation Portable. Easy as Pie!

A large number of machines including CPS1 CPS2 and Neogeo most notably.

*Credit to TTYMan for making this PSP emulator.

NOTE: This emulator will not function properly on 6.60 PRO 10 CFW, firmwares I know it has functioned on properly are
CFW 6.20 PRO-B9
CFW 6.39 PRO-B7
CFW 6.38ME
If you have run the emulator successfully with out crashes on other firmwares please leave a comment below including the CFW version.

The Atari Lynx was Atari’s entrance and exit from the hand held market. While this system was largely overlooked and underdeveloped it did have some fun games in it’s limited line up. You can give a few of these gems a go now through emulation using HandyPSP Lynx emulator.

You will need a lynxboot.img placed in the emulators directory for this emulator to work.

Davex has released his unofficial edited version of NJ’s Neo Geo MVS (SNK) arcade emulator. The emulator runs smoothly and with out issue allowing for full enjoyment of your favorite neogeo games with out lag or skipping.


Usage notes:

To successfully use this emulator you will need to extract the mvspsp directory to your psp’s game directory and extract romcnv to your desktop this contains a tool you will need to  generate cache files of your MVS roms. Once you have generated  a cache file from the zipped rom you will need to copy the generated cache game directory into the cache directory with in the emulators directory and then copy the rom into the rom directory. You must have a cache and rom file in almost all cases. The BIOS files have been included for this emulator as well, I would however recommend using MAME4ALL over this emulator if you can get it working properly on your CFW(Custom Firm Ware) as it does not require these steps.
