PPSSPP is one of the most functional PSP emulators available, and you can even use it on your Android device. Keep in mind that in order to run most games at acceptable speed, you’ll need a newer Android device. Older devices may be too slow to run games properly. If you have custom firmware installed on your PSP, you can dump your own PSP discs and copy them to your Android device.
Chapter 1….Installing PPSSPP
1. Open the Google Play Store. PPSSPP is a PSP emulator, and can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store. You won’t need any additional files or apps (except for games).
2. Search for “ppsspp” in the Store. You’ll see several options in the search results.
3. Select the “PPSSPP” option. There is a “PPSSPP Gold” app, but it is functionally identical to the standard version. Download the free version first to see if it works on your device, and then you can purchase the Gold version later if you want to support the developer.
4. Tap “Install” to download and install the emulator. This is the only app you’ll need to start playing game files. You don’t need to download a BIOS file like you would with other emulators.
Chapter Two… Getting Game Files
1. Download ISO or CSO game files from various sources online. If you don’t want to dump your own games, which requires installing custom firmware on your PSP, you can download ISO files from various torrent sites online. Downloading games that you don’t own is illegal, so download at your own risk. Simply search your favorite torrent site for the game that you want to download. Games may come in CSO format, which is a compressed ISO file. Both CSO and ISO files will work with PPSSPP.
It will be easier to download these game files using a computer, and then transfer them to your Android device.
See How to Download Torrents for detailed instructions on downloading torrent files on your computer.
Once you’ve downloaded the games you want to play on PPSSPP, skip down to the next section. Read on if you want to learn how to dump your own game files legally.
2. Install custom firmware on your PSP if you want to dump your own game files. By installing custom firmware on your PSP, you’ll be able to create ISO files for any UMD or downloaded game that you own. Installing custom firmware is a fairly complicated process. The process will be described briefly below, but you can see How to Hack a PlayStation Portable for detailed instructions.
3. Update your PSP to version 6.60.
4. Download PRO-C Fix3 on your computer. This is the custom firmware installer for the PSP.
5. Copy the downloaded folders into the GAME folder on your PSP Memory Stick.
6. Run “Pro Update” in the Game menu of your PSP to install the custom firmware.
7. Run “CIPL_Flasher” to make the custom firmware permanent. This will prevent you from having to reload it every time you restart your PSP.
8. Insert the UMD that you want to dump into your PSP. You can convert any UMD disc into an ISO file, which you can then copy to your Android device and play in PPSSPP.
Press the Select button while on the PSP main menu. This will open the special custom firmware PRO VSH menu.
9. Select the “USB DEVICE” option and change it to “UMD Disc.” This will make the disc appear on your computer instead of your Memory Stick when you connect the PSP to your computer.
10. Connect the PSP to your computer.Use the USB cable that came with the PSP to connect them.
11. Open the “Settings” menu on the PSP main menu and select
“Initialize USB Connection.” Your PSP will appear connected to your computer. Usually, the correct folder will open automatically. If it doesn’t, open Computer/This PC and select the drive that is a jumble of letters and numbers.
12. Click and drag the ISO file from your PSP to your computer. It may take a few minutes for the file to copy. You now have a complete copy of the UMD on your computer in the form of an ISO file.
Chapter 3…Playing Games
1. Connect your Android device to your computer. You’ll need to transfer your PSP ISO files onto your Android’s storage in order to load them into PPSSPP.
2. Open your Android on your computer. You’ll find the Android in your Computer/This PC window.
3. Create a folder called “PSP”, then create a subfolder called
“GAME.” This will mimic the same folder structure of your PSP.
Copy your ISO files into the GAME folder on your Android. The copy process will likely take a while to complete.
4. Disconnect your Android from your computer. Once you’ve copied the ISO files to the PSP/GAME/ folder, you can disconnect the Android from your computer.
Launch PPSSPP. You’ll be greeted by the PPSSPP main menu.
5. Tap “PSP” and then “GAME” to see all of your ISO files. All of the game files that you copied from your computer will be listed here.
Tap a game to start it. The game will begin loading, and if your device is powerful enough it will start. You can control the game using the on-screen buttons.
If the game doesn’t load, there are two main possibilities: either the game is not supported by PPSSPP (not all are), or your Android device is not powerful enough to run it.
