Yes, you can run them in an emulator such as ePSXe. Typically emulators require rather powerful machines to run at the kind of FPS you'd expect from the console, however you're unlikely to experience issues with a Playstation emulator and a half-decent PC. For more information on Playstation emulation, plus a list of emulators, check out the Emulation ...
Yes, all models of the PS3 are backwards compatible with the PS1. Only some models are backwards compatible with the PS2. You can save your games to the PS3 HDD, or (if you need to import old saved games) you can buy an adapter. The adapter costs about $30 and is available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-3-Memory-Card-Adaptor/dp/B000K1GZIU
The pocketstation is simply a special Playstation One memory card with a screen and a few buttons. A few select Playstation titles could send special data to the Pocketstation where you could play a game on the Pocketstation itself, independent of the Playstation, and sometimes send data back to the game for in-game rewards. A notable user of this system was ...
All PS3s are capable of playing PS1 games, whether they are on disc or downloaded from the PSN. Only some earlier fat PS3 models can play PS2 disc-based games. Recently though, Sony have begun adding "PS2 classics" to the PSN store, which are playable on all PS3s. They appear to be using a full software emulation to play these games. Presumably they have ...
No, it isn't. The PSX emulator's save is one of two things: A savestate - a dump of the emulated PS1's RAM. A virtual memory card - A file representing a PS1 memory card. Understandably, neither of these are readable by a PC game. On top of that, even if it was possible to extract the game's save from a virtual memory card, there is absolutely no ...
AFAIK it's the same with better graphics, picture gallery and the ability to share fishing minigames with friends. EDIT: Someone made a list of the differences: The title screen is different Some slowdown before attacks until you've had the game on for a bit. The electric room with the machine soldier in the "Factory" has permanent slowdown which actually ...
This guide explains how to convert .MCR PSX memcard images to PS3 format. PSXGE can handle conversion between most popular PSX memcard image formats, including .GME to .MCR (the format you're looking for in PSXGE is .MC, just rename it to .MCR).
PS1 games are region locked, so you won't be able to play them on your PAL PS3. Sources: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090515104048AA4nkOp http://www.eurogamer.net/forum_thread_posts.php?thread_id=140751
Picking between PS1 and PS2 will ultimately come down to whatever it costs you to buy either, while the PS2 has some filters to make PS1 look smoother and load a bit faster, it won't make too much of a difference, in my opinion. PS1 Compatibility with PS2 is almost flawless, with the exception of some games. Looking over this compatibility list it looks like ...
Yes, but you need to check the CD drive part number first. Take out the CD drive assembly and flip it over. There is a square label on the underside with text in the format "KSM-440xxx". If the "xxx" is the same on both drives you can exchange them directly. For example if both are KSM-440ACM you can exchange them. If they are different, then I can tell ...
If I remember correctly; The Slim version supports only the PS/X(1995-1999)version memory cards, not the PSOne(2000-2500) version ones. This could be your problem. (I used to have 2 memory cards, the "hard edged" PS/X one and "round edged" PSOne card, and only the older blocky card worked on my slim.)
I may be wrong in assuming this, or your disc may be scratched to all holy hell, but... Have you tried running this game from your disc? I could just be underthinking the problem but some emulators can do this, I was able to play my old scratched Tekken 3 from disc. I also cleaned mine and did the peanut butter trick to do so.
As kotekzot stated, you might have a faulty ROM. If the games doesn't work for you on both these very fine emulators, and it does work for other people, my first guess is a bad ROM as well. That said, here are some things to try out: Obviously, you can try downloading a new ROM from somewhere (sorry, I can't post any links) Try running the emulator ...
As far as I know (coming from a guy that has probably 50+ PSN PS1 games downloaded on my PS3), there is no default way to change the controller setup like so. I always adjust my graphics (smoothing and full screen) every time I launch a game. I know it's annoying... but hey, I'm glad we can still play some of our favorite games.
Here's a video that shows a strategy for level 12 players: The basic strategy appears to be to focus on defense when Zeto uses Call Wave, as that indicates he'll be doing a powerful ...
