PS3SX - PSX Emulator PCSX Port for PS3 is Now Available!


Sponsored Links
222w ago - Today Hermes has relased a port of the classic PC games Heretic & Hexen for PS3 JailBreak homebrew users. The included .pkg file is the front end of both the games, but due to copyrights the game files are not included.

Download: PS3 Heretic and Hexen Homebrew Ports

The quote from Hermes post on Spanish Web site Elotrolado (linked above), roughly transleted by me with help from babelfish:

Hello,

In order to celebrate that PSL1GHT already beginning to have a good foundation and with the addition of the PS3 Soundlib that allows it to reproduce up to 16 voices of sound, I have ported two classic games from the PC to PS3 that make use of multiple effects: The games Heretic and Hexen.

In order for them, to work they require wads HERETIC.WAD and HEXEN.WAD respectively (shareware or full retail will work, in capital letters and with that name) that must be copied in the directory of the EBOOT.BIN, within the folder " heretic" and " hexen" respectively, on a USB device. When starting the game, if it has been installed in hard disk (by means of PKG) the option to press CIRCLE to copy the content of the folders " heretic" or " hexen" from device USB to the installation folder of the game.

Also, I have added vibration to the controller: when you receive damage, vibration activates strong, but when it is an enemy who receives the damage you will notice, it in the form of smaller vibration. Perhaps this last one is not very realistic since it is well if we are what we are inflicting the damage short-distance, but long-distance not as much and that to say that the controler vibrates when is currando the tiny beasts among them. Nevertheless I have left, it in so that sometimes it serves to let you know that you have a few fierce ones around and so that it turns out useful to know that truly, your ammunition is doing damage. (everything is not pure and hard realism)

I have verified over HDMI which I test (that excludes 1080P) to deal with to look for the visible area of screen and use a routine that re scales a screen " virtual" to the final format. The problem is that the drawn area of the screen in PS3, is placed outside the visible area of your monitor/screen and that requires adjustments that I have done on the basis of my screen and not if in some other, can give problems or not, or if with some other resolution it requires new adjustments (a thing is that a slight edge is seen the right for example and another one is that directly, things are not seen that would have to appear). One distinguishes between 4:3 and 16:9

The install instructions translated from the included readme.txt

Installation

There are two ways for install:

1) By PKG. On this occasion, copy the folder content "pkg" on the root's directory of the USB device and "Install Package Files" on the PS3

2) By SELF. On this occasion, copy "homebrew" on the root's directory of the USB device and load the applications with the "Open Manager" or another homebrew loader.

Heretic requires the file HERETIC.WAD that can be copied to the same folder as the EBOOT.BIN (/dev_hdd0/game/HERETIC01/USRDIR or /dev_usbX/homebrew/Heretic) or on a USB device after making the folder called "heretic" and copying HERETIC.WAD (/dev_usb/heretic/HERETIC.WAD)

The filename MUST be ONLY uppercase letters.

For quick copying of the files, there is an utility when starting the game: on the license's screen you can press Circle button if you want to copy the content from dev_usb/heretic to the location of the game in the hard disk (/dev_hdd0/game/HERETIC01/USRDIR)

You can use a FTP program for copy HERETIC.WAD too.

For the HEXEN files its similar to the previous method, but this time, its required HEXEN.WAD that must be copied to /dev_usb/hexen (for all the installations) or /dev_usb/homebrew/Hexen (Open Manager) or to /dev_hdd0/game/HEXEN0001/USRDIR (HDD).

And you can copy on the license's screen the content of /dev_usb/hexen to /dev_hdd0/game/HEXEN0001/USRDIR pressing CIRCLE button

HELP SCREEN / CONTROLS

At any time you can press START button for open the help screen (the game is paused at this time). The help screen show the game controls and pause the game.

With SELECT button you can enter on the Main menu. The another buttons are these:

Hermes v4b here (psfreedom port) on a HTC Dream tried it like a dozen times in different slots and with HDD plugged in, HDMI vs. AV cables and all it does is black screen and hang. only way out is flipping the power switch. anyone having any luck i was all set to play some FF VII before work today and nada. are there anymore specifics that we should know about from those who have it working?

Just to add guys, I have now tried this with a Basic 8GB USB Stick with the directory structure in place. Verified that the PS3 was picking it up as DEVUSB000 which the is mentioned in the Emulator Rar file. No joy still, black screens and just hangs.

Hermes V4b with Spoofing for PSN is the HEX im using on my PICF18XX Board. Id imagine we may need to use a more basic Payload and try again but everything else I use works so I guess ill just wait it out until this works conclusively.

I click on the icon to load the emu, screen goes back for a few secs, then returns back to the dash.

Any ideas?

Must be the payload we are using. Tried this on my 60GB PS3 running 3.41 and using my PIC18XXF USB Board. Using Hermes v4b with PSN (doesn't work) and it black screens even when taking the PIC Board out and putting the USB HDD in. I have the correct directory Structure and BIOS file but it black screens and doesnt look like its even trying to read from my USB HDD. Nice idea though...

I'm using the same payload and board as you and this works for me


Thank You very much that way it worked for me, even though Castlevania crashed after the New Game sequence. +Rep

Great news! Who needs GT5? Let's play GT1 and GT2, if you get a little drunk they will look almost the same!

Nothing else plugged in, ended up even trying the CE-X version for psfMod, and it still booted me to the xmb..
