A very important announcement made at E3, Los Angeles this year is that Sony is collaborating with HTC so that the team could bring PlayStation Mobile on Android. Some of the PlayStation Games must be replayed on the Androids as it will get the official seal from this Japanese Tech Giant. There is a guide given here to have the emulator installed to try out the various classic contents of Sony such as Resident Evil, WipeOut, and Final Fantasy VII. Once you follow the steps given here, you will be able to try out the various classic gaming consoles in your Android.
- Tap the Google Play Icon on the phone and search FPse.
- Buy a copy of it no the phone
- Create an icon on the home screen and you are ready with the emulator now
- To get any FPse or any PlayStation emulator running on the Android, a BIOS file is needed to run the console.
- It is better to download the files on the PC then run a virus check and put these files in a new folder called FPse BIOS.
- The phone has to be connected to the PC with the USB cable and then the “Mass Storage Mode” has to be selected when the system prompts for it.
- The user can now access the SD card on the phone and copy the FPse BIOS folder from the PC to the phone safely.
- After the files get copied safely the user must turn off the Mass Storage Mode and the device has to be unplugged temporarily otherwise these files could not be accessed from the phone
- The FPse has to be loaded and the instructions have to be followed so that the user could search for the BIOS file from the FPse BIOS folder. The common file is the SCPH1001 but other files may also be needed.
- The user needs to do some preparation by going through the emulation settings and downloading the Open GL Plugin.
- This will clean up the source game artwork and other tricks but can affect the frame rate if too many features are selected.
The last part is the trickiest one
- Once the user gets the PS Games in hand, they can search for the instructions on how to rip the discs in the best suitable way. The best one is the .iso but one can also follow PSOne ROMs.
- After downloading them, they need to be moved to a second new folder named FPse ROMs.
- The step 3 has to be repeated and unplug the phone and start FPse. Then once it asks you for the ROM to be open, select the game that needs to be started and the starting screen will come.
Once it is done successfully, there are various tweaks for the graphics, audio and virtual pad settings. Further help could be available on FPSE Forum for the first-time players.
