June 10, 2012 // 11:11 pm - While it hasn't been long since his previous release, today PlayStation 3 developer KDSBest has updated the PS3 SPU Emulation Module to version 0.8.1, which allows x86 PCs to emulate the SPU.

Below are some related Tweets on the update via Twitter (linked above), as follows:

New spu emu soon dump function calls and channel access and so on.. btw no spu stuff just optimised code

Crypto function instructions implemented, aim_spu_module runs fine (v0.8).

Thanks to my tester we found a heavy bug which made the aim not run correctly. Fixing it.

I still got a problem with one instruction, the problem is idk what instruction, but aim decrypts the eid0 section fine with spu emu (v0.8.1).

Andrew it says in the title, it is for SPUs to be emulated on PCs. So yes, PS3 code on PCs so to say.

could you please explain in layman terms what's this emulator for: it is for PC to emulate PS3 code (I rather doubt) or is for PS3 to emulate PC code?

thanks in advance

Just an "SPU" emulator ??

Well for better understanding... all the isolated modules of the ps3 ARE just SPU ELF's

What does this mean ? You can emulate the PS3's module's like metldr, isoldr, aim_spu_module, fdm_spu_module, aacsmodule.spu, cprmodule.spu, and so on.

Additional it can decrypt the header of the elf and show the commands and system calls used without the need to first reverse them.

Hope that make some things clear.

SenteX does anyone really need to answer that for you, i don't think this is intended to be an actual ps3 emulator, just an "spu" emulator as stated.

This beast is insane. Will take more work and time than pcsx2 does to get pcsx3. Since 2002, it's been more than 10 years to get pcsx2 run as it is today. Still not that perfect. For pcsx3? 20-30 years maybe... crazy!
