November 13, 2011 // 8:04 pm - Since the release of DOStoPS3 many PS3 homebrew enthusiasts have been porting DOS games to the PlayStation 3, and this weekend French user sephirothff has done so with The Elder Scrolls Arena and The Elder Scrolls II Daggerfall for fans of the series.

Download: The Elder Scrolls Arena DOS PS3 Port (English) / The Elder Scrolls Arena DOS PS3 Port (French) / The Elder Scrolls II Daggerfall DOS PS3 Port (English)

To quote, roughly translated: We have a little fun and discover or rediscover titles only known the Elder Scroll, the imminent release of Skyrim put me in mind to run the first two games of the series on PS3 via DOSBox.

This small project aims to run the game The Elder Scrolls correctly on PS3.

The first two games of the series is free on the official website of the series (elderscrolls.com) so we can enable us to distribute and adapt. About The Elder Scrolls 3 I think we can forget a port on the job saw this crazy ask, the game is commercially available PC.

Here is The Elder Scrolls Arena and Daggerfall The Elder Scrolls, but both games work but row for the moment, so feel free to experiment with different configurations in the file-0.74.conf dosbox and you can also map the keyboard buttons on your controller (a keyboard and mouse works too) with the file-mapping 0.74.map both are in the folder.

Dosbox in / dev_hdd0/game/TESA00001 and TESD00001 (you can also map the buttons directly involved with the L3 button, however, must be repeated each time the game for this solution). If you have a better config to provide, post them here, it will change the proposed version.

Although there appears to be little interest, here is another update: mateogodlike.com/2011/06/ps3-zork-dos-game-port-pkg.html

Download: Zork PS3 DOS Game Port PKG

BEST PLAYED WITH USB KEYBOARD. This is for CFW 3.55. Zork was one of the first interactive fiction computer games and an early descendant of Colossal Cave Adventure. The first version of Zork was written in 1977–1979 on a DEC PDP-10 computer by Tim Anderson, Marc Blank, Bruce Daniels, and Dave Lebling, and implemented in the MDL programming language.

All four were members of the MIT Dynamic Modelling Group. "Zork" was originally MIT hacker slang for an unfinished program. The implementors briefly named the completed game Dungeon, but changed it back to Zork after receiving a trademark violation notice from the publisher of Dungeons & Dragons. Zork has also been adapted to a book series.

I am leaving it so users can map their own controller settings.

V1.0

  • A Completed Request
  • Initial Release
  • Runs Very Smooth
  • ICON0.PNG

PS3 Maniac Mansion DOS Game Port PKG by Mateo Godlike: mateogodlike.com/2011/06/ps3-maniac-mansion-dos-game-port-pkg.html

Download: Maniac Mansion PS3 DOS Game Port PKG

This is for CFW 3.55. Maniac Mansion is a 1987 graphic adventure game developed and published by Lucasfilm Games. A comedy horror parody of B movies, the game's plot follows teenager Dave Miller as he attempts to rescue his girlfriend from the mansion of an evil mad scientist. The player uses a point-and-click control system to guide Dave and two of his friends through the mansion while avoiding its dangerous inhabitants while solving puzzles.

CONTROLS (Joystick):

Δ Triangle = Start
[] Square = Enter
DPad = Arrow Keys

Basically all you need is those simple controls.

How to play: Maneuver the arrows to choose the action at the botton of the screen. When you first start you pick two characters and you get to play as them. You can switch between characters throughout the game at any time by clicking the action at the bottom.

Objective of the game: Help Rescue Sandy from a mansion of an evil mad scientist.
