September 28, 2011 // 1:44 pm - It's been awhile since the previous release, and today I have compiled the latest FBANext MC68000/Z80 Arcade PS3 emulator port revision 490 for PS3 CFW 3.41 and 3.55 users.

To quote, roughly translated: Under a user request I decided to make a change in the emulator FBANext PlayStation 3. The emulator was initially made by the coder Squarepusher, this emulator has been amended several times by various users and Developers the PS3 scene, and under the version 1.0.0 we decided to make our changes.

When this emulator was released, I noticed in the various forums of the difficulty many people are able to use it, according to the criticism that at the time they were allocated, I decided to make the process much simpler and easy to use. Let's see in detail the changes...

Features

  • Made from version 1.0.0.
  • Added support for the start of the ROM.
  • Place different directory to start the ROM.
  • Added directory for compatibility with multiMAN from the column back.
  • Replaced ICON0.PNG and PIC1.PNG.
  • Several changes and additions in fbanext-ps3.XML.
  • Compatible with MAME ROM and NEO GEO.




Emulated Arcade Types

  • Capcom CPS-1
  • Capcom CPS-2
  • Capcom CPS-3
  • Cave
  • Neo Geo
  • Sega System 1, System 16 (and similar), System 18, X-Board and Y-Board
  • Toaplan
  • Taito F2, X, Z and others
  • Psikyo 68EC020
  • Data East DEC-0, DEC-8 and DECO IC16 based games
  • Galaxian based hardware
  • Irem M62, M63, M72, M90 and M92 hardware
  • Kaneko 16
  • PGM
  • Toaplan 1
  • Toaplan 2
  • Miscellaneous drivers for lots of other hardware

Changes and use:

  • Fixed black screen before the first time: The first time you start the emulator gave black screen forcing the user to restart the console, if at least one ROM was not included in a directory the problem could not be resolved and therefore we have solved this problem. This generated an XML file (options) that serves to launch the ROM and the configuration menu. We solved this problem by making sure that the file of the setup menu is already there, ready to take you into the emulator menu where you can start your ROM.
  • Changed the icons on display in XMB.
  • Place different directory for placement of ROM.

How to Load the ROM From Internal HDD

"/ Dev_hdd0 / roms" This directory can be exploited to the start of the ROM menu FBANext.

You have to create the folder "roms" in lower case, and upload the folder "/ dev_hdd0 /". You can do this from Filezilla or other FTP server by creating it directly.

"/ Dev_hdd0 / ROMS / fba" This directory can be exploited for the boot ROM of the column back to multiMAN, you must position the ROM folder "fba".

You have to create the folder "ROMS" in uppercase and the folder "fba" in tiny inside "ROMS" folder "fba" you can load your ROM .zip.

From external HDD or USB

Create a folder "roms" in an external HDD or USB, you are going to charge your ROM .zip. This will launch the ROM menu FBANEXT.
We tried to create the directory to start the ROM from multiMAN through external devices but these were not seen we will try to better understand why and if we do another version.

WARNING !!

All ROM MAME and NEO GEO must be loaded in .zip format, it is to be noted that the best compatibility we found for the ROM MAME, in any case many ROM could prove not compatible or even some are not even views from ' emulator. This is not a problem but the emulator itself well by the manufacturer of the ROM, we found greater compatibility from manufacturers such as: Taito corporation, Tecnos Japan, Capcom, Sega, SNK, Namco, Konami and Tad, other manufacturers do not seem to be compatible emulator FBANext.

Enabling Neo-Geo Universe Bios (Uni-Bios)

Enabling the option will load Neo-Geo games with these BIOS instead of the standard ones. You must make sure to have the proper "neogeo.zip" from MAME v0.149 romset.

What's the difference you might ask? Everything!, Uni-Bios allow you to do so many things, for example:

  • Choose System Region (USA, JAPAN, EURO)
  • Choose Console type (ARCADE / CONSOLE)
  • Enable game cheats for every game! on the fly!
  • SFX / BGM Jukebox
  • More!

Neo-Geo Universe Bios (Uni-Bios) as described at the official Web site:

The UNIVERSE BIOS is for owners of MVS or AES hardware that want an easy way to change country region or between Arcade or Console mode on boot. Also included are other features that are not possible using the standard MVS bios.

The UNIVERSE BIOS is also designed to give easy access to things like inserting coins, test mode and memory card management when using the joystick ports only. Of course the BIOS still allows standard operation too.

F.A.Q - Frequently Asked Questions

Please, before asking any question or reporting a problem, take a moment to read these.

Thank you.

Q - What Custom Firmware (CFW) do I need to have to use FB Alpha RL?
A - Latest release has been signed to work on most CFWs, it has been tested on Rebug REX 4.46 (CEX) and MiraLaTijera CFW 4.46 (Core 3.2.0).

Q - Can I just install the "UPD", or I really need the "BASE" and why?
A - The "BASE" installation is mandatory, it contains all the files, resources and data required by FB Alpha RL to work, the "UPD" package only contains the program or SELF / BIN files (and maybe other extra update data / resources). If you don't do this, don't come asking me why some feature is not working or if you get any other error.

Q - When I try to launch FB Alpha RL from XMB, it kicks me back, why?
A - This is a common problem with homebrews, if this happens to you, post back with detailed information of your PS3 Model and CFW, including if its a CEX or DEX CFW.

Q - When launching a game RetroArch comes up with an error, what happened?
A - Probably you have an incorrect romset or in case of Neo-Geo or PGM, you must make sure to have the BIOS placed in the same directory where the ROMs are located.

Q - Where can I find the proper ROMs / romsets?
A - I cannot help you directly, but Google can.

Q - Some games have bad graphics or eventually lock up my console, why?
A - This happens because not all game drivers have been ported or updated to work on the PS3 system processor architecture. If you find such games, PM me the specific name and romset, I will be working on a compatibility list sooner or later.
