PS4 New Emulators (NES/GBA/Sega) Setup Tutorial
what is going on guys this model worker here welcome back to another ps4 tutorial so in this tutorial I'm gonna be showing you guys how to get SAP with the new emulators that have been released we have an NES emulator a Sega Genesis / Mega Drive emulator and a game boy advanced emulator that have all been released in the past few days and the gameboy advanced emulator has no or has all the roms on it so it's just a simple case of installing it running it no problems there the other ones are a bit more complicated because they come with no roms pre-installed for legal reasons and for those same legal reasons I can't show you where to go to download the roms but I can show you if you already have roms I can show you how to install them to get to you know actually use these package files to run your roms so that's what we're gonna be covering in this video so the nes emulator and the mega drive emulator don't have any roms on them so basically what we have to do is extract the contents of these package files and put the roms on there and recompile them back into a package file again and that's pretty much it the Sega Genesis / mega drive emulators that's all you have to do with that one the nes comes in two package files there's an installer package file that you have to put the roms on and then you basically overwrite that package file with the emulator package file once you have installed the roms okay so let's go ahead and get on with it so first thing we're gonna do is create a blank folder somewhere on your desktop where you're going to extract the package file – so go ahead and open up the fake package tools and run Orbis pub check all the links you'll need will be in the description you're going to want to go ahead and grab the nes installer package file and drag that into the image list or click Add image and browse for it then we're going to go ahead and click extract files enter all zeros as the passcode and then click extract select all files and directories and then select the output folder so for me that's the extracted package file folder I made and then I'm going to go ahead and click start and that will extract the entire contents of the package file to that directory so we've got image zero and sc0 you want to go into SC zero copy everything that's in there and then go into image 0 SC e system and paste all of that into this folder and from there you can basically delete the SC zero folder ok so now we're going to go into the image folder now this is where the PlayStation 2 ISO is located if you have WinRAR you can just right click and extract the files here with WinRAR if you don't have WinRAR set to default leave open iso files you can right-click on it and select either open with winrar or open with and select WinRAR or choose another app and select WinRAR to open it so I'm just going to right click and extract all the contents into this directory you get rid of the original ISO and from here you can see we've got our roms folder which is currently blank there's nothing in there so what we're going to do is get your roms so I've got the some NES roms to test right here and I'm going to just copy them into the roms folder just like that and then we need to recompile this back into a Playstation 2 ISO and to do that we're going to use CD gen ps2 version 3 make sure it is version 3 again it'll be linked in the description so we're going to open this up drag all of these items into here into this window and then click on image select the image 0 image folder and go ahead and save the ISO so you want to rename it first to disc 0 1 which is the same name as the original ISO and then change the save as type to is so instead of bin and then click Save should say the boat arrived at the port of everything went successfully in close out of that so we now have our disc 0 1 2 iso with all of those files in there all of our roms are in there so we're all good so then we can just delete all the other extracted files that we just have our disc 0 1 2 iso in the image folder so now we're basically ready to recompile into a package file so we're gonna open gen GP for brows for this image zero folder so browse for the image zero folder then generate the GP for file and save it on just save it in the same directory so there is we've got our GP for file and then we can basically turn this back into a package file with the fake package tools and because we're building a package file for the ps2 emulation in the ps4 you want to rename Orbis – pub CMD – Orbis – pub – CMD – original or something like that just call it a different name and then rename the ps2 one to Orbis – pub cmd.exe from there we can open Orbis pub gen so file open and then select the GP for file and then we need to go to command project settings package change storage type from digital or leave max 50 to digital and BD max 50 and then you can change the application type to freemium app and then click OK and then build the package file so we're gonna build this and there we go so the sit done I should also mention that there can be an issue with the fake package tools if you're using a newer version where it renames the Keystone file so that when you build the package file and you try and run it it just black screens and crashes so make sure you're using the one I put in the description which is an older version of the fake package tools which doesn't have that issue so if you are having that issue then download the one I have in the description and use that to build your package files we now have our package file and get rid of that so we now have this package file right here which is our nes installer package file ok so now we're gonna go ahead and do the same thing with the sega megadrive emulator so again i'm going to open up the fake package tools i'm going to do Orbis pub check we're going to drag in our mega drive package file we're going to extract it enter all zeroes click extract select all files and directories I'm going to grab the path of our folder and we're going to extract it there we go extracted we're gonna grab all the files inside SC 0 and put them inside SC system get rid of the SC zero folder gonna extract our disk zero one dot ISO open the roms folder grab my Sega Genesis roms copy them in and there we go and then get rid of this disk zero one dot ISO recompile all these files back into an ISO again so image calling this disk zero one dot higher so and that should be it get rid of these files now we just have disc zero one left in here and we rebuild the package file using gem GP 4 just grab the path and generate the GP 4 file save the GP 4 file and finally we go ahead and build our package file with Orbis pub gen open the GP 4 file go to command project settings package change this to digital and BD change this to freemium app and build our package file it takes a bit longer because I've got quite a few more roms on there and there we go that's just the one kilobyte file we can delete ok so now we have both of our package files with roms installed so now all we have to do is go ahead and install these on our ps4 basically I'm going to use the remote package installer to install these just because it's gonna be faster than installing via that with a u.s. be especially because the Gameboy advanced emulator with the roms or ID on it is about five gigs or four gigs so it's just going to be easier but obviously what you're gonna want to do is open up the web kxy run hand version 1.8 and then install the package files you can either use the remote package installer or you can put them on a USB stick on the root of a USB stick making sure it's fat32 format or exFAT format and then you can install them that way through the debug settings but just for quickness I'm going to use the remote package installer at least to do the Gameboy one so you actually do have to use the USB to install the nes package files because you have to overwrite the package file which which you can't do with the remote package installer so what we're gonna do is run our little package sender again i've already done a video on the remote package installer so if you're confused check that video so I'm going to go ahead and install this one which is the nes installer first so there we go that starts installing I'm just gonna wait until that's done there you go ready to use so that's the installer right there for NES so I'm going to close it reopen the remote package installer again and then I'm gonna grab this package file which is the Sega Genesis one I'm gonna drag that onto the install package and there we go that adds two downloads it's just installing right there as you can see still going again this one shouldn't take long there you go done so I can close this now we now have our Sega Megadrive or Sega Genesis emulator and finally I'm going to run it one more time for the gameboy advanced emulator which I have where is it that's it right here this one here that already has the roms on it install package starts installing we've minimized this you can see that we're downloading four gigs in about 30 seconds so it should be a lot slower if I was using the USB method okay well that's downloading so basically while we're waiting for that we'll go ahead and put the nes emulator on our USB drive and the root of the USB the reason we have to install this one using USB stick is simply because it does it needs to overwrite the installer package file so once we install the roms we have to to overwrite it with the actual emulator package file and the remote package installer just by default it won't overwrite so we're gonna have to install it using the USB so we put that on a USB plug it into the ps4 okay so we're on the ps4 here we've got our emulators installed so let's go ahead and setup the NES one because that's the most awkward one to install the other ones you can just run and basically run your ROM straight off the bat now but this one's a bit more complicated so we have to run the nes installer first we actually have to copy all the Robins to another directory before we're able to actually overwrite this with the emulator itself so it launches us into the file browser here we press circle to see DFS press circle on that and then we've got our roms folder we press circle on that press X on all the roms until you've selected them all and then press r1 I believe yeah or one and then press circle on coffee and then press triangle to go up directory triangle again go to the sc0 folder press circle on that and then basically you want to press r1 again and press circle on paste and that will pace all of your NES games into this directory as you can see I've already got them copied so you know if I do this I don't know hopefully okay I thought I would say you've already got them installed do you want to overwrite but guess it doesn't do that it just installs them anyway but yeah basically you just want to paste them all into this directory because I already have installed them before they're already in there so yeah I think it just skipped them all because they're already installed so give that time to copy all your roms over once they're all in that directory can basically exit out and close the ROM NES installer and now you can overwrite that so by going on to the debug settings game package installer and installing the retroarch nes package file from the USB and then you'll get this message saying that the contents already installed do you want to overwrite say yes which is why we couldn't use the remote package installer for that and that will go ahead and overwrite the package file and install the actual emulator package instead and that's it we now have that all set up and installed as well so now we have retroarch we've got our gameboy advanced emulator and our Mega Drive / Genesis emulator so let's go ahead and run the NES one we'll actually be able to run a game here so PlayStation 2 so for this one scroll up and down using d-pad you want to press circle on content circle a on mc0 which is where we installed our roms and then all the roms basically show up in here so let's try run mario bros quick nes circle and there you go the game runs perfectly fine by the looks of it yep there we go jump I can use the d-pad to scroll along and the game works alright so that is the NES emulator let's go ahead and have a look at some of the other ones go ahead and close this we can run the gameboy advanced emulator remember this one already has roms pre-loaded to pre-loaded on there I'm still not gonna put a direct download link to it though just in case but I will put a link to the forum post I found it on so C DFS we go in there actually do we yeah we do yeah so you go into C DFS and then the roms folders in here then all the pre-installed roms are right here so let's just do a scumbag advanced I never had a gameboy advanced so I have literally no idea like I'm not familiar with any of the games that are on here 2005 didn't think the Gameboy advanced was thought it was older than that okay start new game novice definitely nervous skip this trying to get it to actually get into the game here oh hey there we go still can't control it yeah oh there is alright there we go so you can hold down X to fire circle to fire missiles game works pretty well it's pretty smooth so that's the Gameboy advanced emulator so let's go ahead and try the Sega Genesis emulator you need to make sure this works because this is another one we actually added the roms to and recompiled the package file so hopefully this will run as well PlayStation 2 and it runs so you've got to get through this disclaimer but after that we should be able to load our roms all right there we go x2 continue we go to roms list and all the roms we installed now show up here so let's install a good old classic like Sonic the Hedgehog or something like that let's try and get the original one Sonic the Hedgehog 2 no where's the first one okay here we go Sonic the Hedgehog loading rom and there we go it runs 1991 all right there we go so the game runs there's a little actual framerate counter in the bottom left-hand corner as well just showing that it's running pretty much at 60fps with slight drop slight drops down to sort of 56 57 54 pretty unnoticeable though you're not going really going to notice any of the drops it's running running very smoothly so yeah remember these are all emulators that were made for you know exploited PlayStation twos I believe and now they have been ported to run on ps4 through the ps2 emulation and they run pretty damn fine and this is the like even the retroarch emulator for the NES one that's the ps2 retroarch it's not related I don't think to the the new retroarch that's been developed for natively for the ps4 which is you know probably gonna be more like the one that's on the switch which will hopefully have more cores than just n yes so yeah anyway guys that is how you go ahead and get your roms installed and get those emulators installed hope you guys enjoyed the video or found the information useful if you did go ahead and leave a like and subscribe and I'll hopefully see you guys in the next video
