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.

I wish I did just have a problem finding roms, I been up all night trying to install this. I am on 3.55 waninkokos V2 CFW. I have downloaded like 6 or 7 different versions, 2 have installed and then error when I try to load, the others won't install at all. I only see geohots CFW everywhere I look, did I mess up going from 3.41 OFW straight to 3.55 CFW?

Please add a default path to USB:/FBAROMS or something, it's just one extra line in the .xml and it'll save a lot of people screwing around with ftp's and pc's.

Nope, nothing got changed on that front (depends what previous version you were working with, though).

The only thing I can think of that might have happened is that the XML config file got overwritten when updating. You might need to set up the ROM paths again with a text editor.

BTW - this is a huge pain in the collective you-know-what - I'm going to try hacking a 'Set ROM path feature' into FBA and have FBA save it.

Same here, my CPS3 roms were all working on an earlier version. Now 3rd strike and JoJo are missing files I guess... I guess the roms got updated. Can anyone confirm?

can't seem to find a Street Fighter 3rd Strike rom that works for me. Anybody care to share?

ps: is it normal for the emulator to work without using the dongle (on 3.41)?

FBANext PS3 - Custom build 2v2 - r422 (FW 1.92+/FW 3.15/FW 3.41/Geohot CFW 3.55)

CHANGED since 442:
- 1.92 PKG should work now.
- Turned on triple buffering - led to a helpful speed increase. Especially noticeable in Street Fighter 3rd Strike

I just noticed that the PARAM.SFO was made in such a way that the minimum required firmware was 3.40.

Therefore, here is a short interim release - r422 - all of my patches have become part of the official version (post-417).

FBANext - PS3 - r422 (FW 1.92+/FW 3.15/FW 3.41/CFW 3.55)

I want to implement some more stuff - but that will have to wait until later.
