There are now programs that allow you to play your favorite Nintendo 64, Sega, gb, gbc and other console games on your PSP. Even though you can’t insert a Nintendo 64 cartridge on your PSP, there is a software that emulates it which are called emulators. Let us first discuss emulators. An emulator duplicates (provides an emulation of) the functions of one system with a different system, so that the second system behaves like (and appears to be) the first system. This focus on exact reproduction of external behavior is in contrast to simulation, which concerns an abstract model of the system being simulated, often considering internal state. Most emulators just emulate a hardware architecture - if operating system firmware or software is required for the desired software, it must be provided as well (and may itself be emulated). Both the OS and the software will then be interpreted by the emulator, rather than being run by native hardware. Emulators are specialized for a given system to emulate, meaning there are emulators specified for playing Nintendo 64 games on your PSP and another emulator for playing Sega games.
Now that you know what an emulator is, let us now go to the second step, which is the actual installation of the emulator on your PSP. Before we can start the installation process, you’ll first need an emulator. There are many different kind of emulators out there in the internet and most are free for download but before you download, make sure to read the specification of the emulator to make sure that your system is compatible with it. (These emulators are home brewed and will mostly run on systems using a 1.5 firmware and may or may not support newer versions.)
Installing an emulator is easy but installation process may vary according to the emulator used. These following steps are based for the Daedalus emulator:
* Name: Daedalus
* Speed: Slow, most games run around 10-15 FPS
Basic Install Instructions
1. Open the .zip and extract it.
2. If on 1.5 copy the contents of the 1.5 .zip to PSP/GAME.
3. If on 1.0 of custom firmware copy the contents of the 1.0 .zip to the
Finally Copy ROMs to the ROMS folder in the Daedalus folder, The installation process is most likely the same on other emulators.
