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...


  • 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.


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.

Ok, well it's not only me apparently that has this problem others have the exact same problem.

To quote: "I tried to load my FBAnext up and it freezes on a black screen the whole ps3 freezes not even the txt will show of cp1, cp2, neogeo etc.. I still have the roms for it so I'm not worried about deleting it and starting fresh but when I did the samething? Should I just delete the fbznext from my ps3 menu or connect with ftp and delete it all, Any help would be greatful thank you."

A possible fix: "The blank screen happens because it cannot find the rom path, you need to go onto multiman, go to /dev_hdd0/game/FBAN00000/USRDIR/

and copy the xml or (as of 2012) the cfg file. And edit the rom paths. Once the paths are correct, you won't have any more problems."

Thanks for trying to help. Hmm wonder what extra features your firmware has... might it just be a Kmeaw with mfw builder on top...

Well I don't know what's going on , maybe someone else can help you. I would just stay on r478 for now until there is a way to get newer version to work. I'm on PS3ultimate CFW (3.55 Kmeaw with some extra features).

Try installing the "r486" version before you install the "r490" version.

Here ( is the "r486" version.

r490 and r486 Does not work under REBUG 3.55 on my PS3 60 gb FAT. Gives me a black screen a freez the hole PS3 , I have to hold in power on button to shout it down. Anyone else on Rebug 3.55 that have the same problem with the new versions of this emulator??

If you are on REBUG 3.55 and r490 works for you, can you please zip the folder FBAN00000 and upload it to so I may get it.


Versions r470 and r478 works just fine on REBUG, but i want the new ones to work too

Thanks to Twinaphex for his work on this emulator.

Here are a few more updates from pete_uk:

FBA-NEXT-SLIM - Commit 682f9ce1bdbf9514ab5ab451508e7251acd6a0b4

Lots of improvements made since the last version I posted.

FBO mode is not currently hooked up. Although you can select 2 shaders in the settings, only the first is enabled.

Please Note: Twinaphex has now configured FBA to use a plaintext CFG file instead of XML in the old versions.

If your roms are stored anywhere other than the default of "/dev_hdd0/game/FBAN00000/USRDIR/roms", You will need to edit /dev_hdd0/game/FBAN00000/USRDIR/fbanext-ps3.cfg.

This version should also fix the black screen crash / issue some people have been having.

This version should work fine as I installed it on my PS3 last night.

is there any way to set FBAnext to not show every revision or country version of a game? I have the full rom set and I know I could just delete the unwanted sets but with the naming scheme and the amount of them it would take forever.
