To quote: Currently Mednafen only supports zipped roms, as there was a bug with unzipped roms (fix coming soon). Future versions should have PC Engine and PC Engine CD, as well as Atari Lynx, Neo-Geo Pocket and WonderSwan.

This is a port of the Mednafen Multi-System emulator to the Sony PlayStation 3.

Mednafen PS3 Features:
• Emulates NES GB GBC GBA SMS GG
• Load uncompressed or zipped images
• Save and load save ram and save states
• File browser, place your games on a USB drive, or FTP them to the internal drive
• Fast forward

The first time you load a game for a system, you will be asked to configure the controls, you can reconfigure them later by pressing L3 + R3.








Future:
• PCE and PCE CD support
• Neo-Geo pocket, Atari Lynx and Wonder Swan support
• Better user interface
• Other features

Use:
• File Menu
• Up and Down to Scroll the list by 1
• Left and Right to scroll the list by a page
• Cross: Select File or directory
• Circle: Go to previous directory

In Game:
• Tilt the right stick to the right for fast forward
• R3 to open settings menu
• Hold L3 + L2 to save state
• Hold L3 + R2 to load state
• Hold L3 + R3 to redefine controls

Settings Menu:
• Up and down to choose setting
• Left and right to change the current settings value

We do already for all the PS3 emulator files here: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/downloads.php?do=cat&id=12

For discussion we could make a subforum for emulators, but so far each PS3 emulator thread (except for the first SNES one) has only a few pages of replies/interest and they are located in the main PS3 hacks section... moving them to a subforum, even fewer people would ever see/use them I think.

It has a newer date on it but that is about it, the changelog is from the SVN so it likely includes some of the changes from the 26th but you would have to try it out to know which for sure.

With all of these emulator versions coming out, at the end of each day (as time permits) I usually upload what files I can with the day's changelogs.

Not a great system I know, but unless those who use these emulators and follow their updates closely jump in and attach all the separate file revisions and changelogs this is the best it will get (once a day) for emulator file updates.

Hey guys, just downloaded the 3.40+3.41 Debug Firmware Update but it's only two text files in each folder?

How do I update my PS3 Debug to 3.40 or 3.41?

Please help! I'm baffled! :S

Here is another update... SVN changes from mike_k:

r7 Add new font.
r6 Make File list larger and take up whole screen on wide screen displays. XMB no longer sluggish with list open. Add a quick note about building.
r5 Add load new game item on R3 menu. Press Triangle in the browser to change your mind. Doesn't like to load more than one SMS or GG game in a session.
r4 Hopefully fixes loading non-zipped files.
r3 A few too many files.
r2 [No log message]
r1 Initial directory structure.

Well like i said i have a 60GB PS3 Test DECHA00A model, i simply got my SanDisk HC videoHD 8GB SD card and inserted it into my Samsung camera, unzipped the files to the formatted card, then plugged the cam into my PS3 via USB, then selected install packages on my Game section on the XMB and it worked!

well despite the fact i need the 3.41 update lol

Thanks everyone!

You got this emulator to run on a non-jailbroken ps3.. I'm guessing you have a special debug unit then?

Has revision 0.5 been compiled yet? I want the ROM browser badly.
