October 24, 2010 // 9:19 pm - While under development for the last few weeks and not to be confused with the recent Gameboy Color and NES Emulators for PS3, this weekend shinhalsafar has released his FCEU NES Nintendo emulator PS3 port via GameOS for emulation fans along with some updates below.

To quote from the included readme file:

FCEU PS3 v1: Finally FCEU for PS3 is ready for release. The updates will come often now.

Reports bug and feature requests:

Special thanks:

•To the snes9x-ps3 team (TheMaister, Squarepusher64 and myself shinhalsafar).


•Just enough to play a ROM
•4P Support


•Up - Go up
•Down - Go down
•Left - Go back five file entries
•Right - Go forward five file entries
•L1 - Go back one page
•R1 - Go forward one page
•Cross - (If directory selected) enter directory/ (if ROM selected) start ROM
•Triangle - Same as Cross
•Circle - (If not in root directory) Go back to previous directory
•L2 + R2 - (If you previously exited a ROM) return to game
•Select - Go to settings menu (see 'CONTROLS IN SETTINGS MENU' section)


•Up - Go up one setting
•Down - Go down one setting
•Left - Change setting to the left
•Right - Change setting to the right
•Circle - Go back to ROM menu


•Display framerate - This will show the FPS (Frames Per Second) onscreen
• Resolution - Switch between resolutions - 480p mode, 720p mode and 1080p mode (depending on your monitor's supported resolutions)
• Aspect Ratio - Switch between aspect ratios 4:3 and 16:10 (16:9 will come shortly, for now choose 16:10 on widescreen - perhaps small
• cutoff at left and right))
• Hardware Filtering - Switch between Linear interpolation (Bilinear filtering) and Point filtering.


• Nothing worth really explaining here
•R3 + L3 - Press these two buttons together while in-game to go back to the ROM browser menu.

TIP: You can use any USB controller you like and it will map the buttons on the fly - it is even possible to hotswap joysticks - remove one from the USB port, replace it with another one - it should all work fine. even SNES-to-USB converters should work.

To play a game with a USB controller as Player 1, start up your PS3 and rather than using the Sixaxis/DualShock3, plug in an USB port before connecting the controller to the PS3 - your USB pad should then become Controller 1.


This release corresponds with revision = 768cf9df52

Source code repository is here:



1 - Edit the Makefile and remove the following from PPU_CXX_FLAGS and PPU_CFLAGS:


3 - Do 'make clean && make && make pkg'


* Please start reporting them on the google code bug tracker


For people running this on HDTVs complaining about input lag:

•Turn off all post-processing filters you may have running - on Sony Bravia HDTVs, display Motion Flow (this also causes input lags with most games in general, not just this SNES emu. If your HDTV has a 'Game' mode or something of the sort, select that as well.


•100% everywhere, let me know otherwise.


•SRAM save
•State save


•See the entire snes9x-ps3 team.

Not real clear on what you mean exactly. I have my roms on an external USB drive working just fine. I keep them in a "Nes Roms" folder myself, which is found in my "dev_usb002" folder (don't know if this varies for others dependent on what you have attached to your system). Just navigate towards your USB drive and you should be golden.. hope that helps bud

Make sure your roms are unzipped or it'll crash back to the XMB. Zips seem not to be supported yet.. enjoy!

Bud, I quoted lithium210 who asked if .zip files were supported so I responded. I've played both those games unzipped just fine..a fact I stated earlier

I just tested it on my PS3 and works flawlessly. However, after I installed the pkg file, the icon in the installed folder comes up as a controller spinning icon and not the one shown in the screenshot. Any particular reason why this would be?

Also how do I stretch the screen to 16:9?
