Thread: Tutorial: Run SEGA/SNES Emulators on any PS3 FW, any region via XMB!

    Yeah. It is ps2 emulation. So 40gb ps3 can't run elfs. You can try other emulators, the most will work as any normal ps2 game. Only a 1% doesn't work. I tried pgen and super nes emulator, and both are working fine.

    Anything that is REGION LOCKED can be bypassed with a same MEDIA HIGHER TOC game/dvd/bdvd and maybe also backup PS3 games (can't test since i haven't got a blu-ray burner) with a SINGLE SWAP. CDs with cds, dvds with dvds and so on!

    BTW, tomorrow, i am going 2 army... in my country i must go 2 years to army.. of course in some months i'll be in a higher position, and also in 10-14 days i'll be out for 24hours i think, so i can answer all yours questions!

    I am a little confused, So if i don't have an original SM disc and a unmodded PS3 can I use this as described above.

    Or will the file package above do it all. So i dont have to crack open my ps3?

    Thanks guys sorry to be a bit dumb

    Also look you swapmagic manual about your SMBOOT buttons, coz a different version may have different key mappings. Also i just use the SM coder coz it has better usb regognition, and also doesn't have key mappings that suck, instead it has a nicely done menu.
    Thanks for your reply. It seems I need SM 3 at least in order to use SMBOOT. I don't think my old SM 2 will boot an ELF.

    I was wondering though, does it allow you to load the USB Extreme ELF (PS2 ISO loader for USB HDD)? Anyone try it?

    I have a 60gb ntsc ps3 and swap magic 3.6. I got the BEDATA-SYSTEM in the mc0:/ with the USBD.irx and when I quit, and when I reboot swap magic and hold up and push L1 it just locks up in a black screen.

    what did i do wrong?

    I have the old SM 2.0 DVD as well. So, if anybody finds out a way to do this with the 2.0 let us know. I will try some more things, but if not I probably will buy the new 3.6 or 3.8 version.

    small precision, the file usbd.irx must be a specific version to work. we need a version 0.13, 0.14, 0.15, 0.16 or 0.17 usb driver if it does not, as I have already explained when I discovered (

    I haven't checked (not into running EMU's on PS3 right now) but another version may be in this pack, which was added a few days before this guide when the initial video tutorial first came online:

    Swap Magic 3.8 Coder Edition

    Hi, I ended up buying the swap magic 3.8 coder edition and having trouble understanding what to do with this. The mapped hotkey's don't work (r1+up ect..) and I read the manual for booting a usb device and asks to go to the SMBOOT menu and boot SMBOOT0 (im assuming).

    This brings to a blank screen and doesnt do anything. I think my problem is that i need to access your disc to backup things to the memory card (am i right)? So I tried simply swapping the disc with the burnt disc with no success (using the normal boot), and also tried swapping with a ps2 disc (GTA3, GT3) then swapping to the burnt disc and nothing.

    Is there something im missing as i really would like to play mega-drive / SNES on the ps3 (without linux). Thanks.
