    Just read the readme on github. If you cant extract meaning from written text, look for a youtube tutorial.
    Lazy.
    Prepare USB stick: On Windows use guiformat (google), format as FAT32 32k clustersize (k stands for thousand). Name stick SONY during formating. Thats it.
    Someone help me buy stuff with clicks. :(
    SanDisk Cruzer Fit 64GB (2.0 variant) right now is pretty great.
    SanDisk Ultra Fit 128 GB (3.1 variant) will probably be great, once the thing described in the next answer happens.
    USB 3 or 2 doesnt matter in theory (both are compatible), but in practice, USB 3 draws more power, and the front USB ports are limited in power delivery to "2.0 levels" so USB 3 support currently is hit and miss.
    I use and like this one, which is pretty much perfect:
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B007KYTI34/

    But - you wont need a hub in the near future. People are working on a kernel that allows the rear USB port to pick up data. This has the advantage, that it isnt power limited as the two front ports, which means eventually you will be able to use it with almost any USB stick/drive. Also, the two front ports will then be able to be used for two controllers.
    I make my own, with coverart from mobygames. There are collections out there mainly with stock pal or ntsc covers. they all suck (imho). 512px is a good size, 226px (afair) is the default, and if you get in the multiple hundreds of games you might want to switch more to the lower size art - because its connected to lag at that point. If you need prefab art, look at the ps classic reddit.
    Yes, you can mix, match, play pal in ntsc, play pal in pal - everything goes.
    Not needed, we've got retroarch.

    You can if you get a USB adapter.

    I suspect button remapping is required. Tbh for me I intend to use the included ones for most games then when needed plug in a PS3 controller since i already have them. I think there will be too many special components and latency inducers or whatever if i start relying on rare adapters and shit.

    It doesn't work on the PSC's UI only in-game. I've only gotten the D-Pad and left analog stick to function on the carousel. You have to bind the controllers in the PCSX Menu under "Controls".

    Got banned on /r/PlaystationClassic for listing the actual contributions of the Bleemsync team (write a PC based GUI, elaborate on the work of others, write in some failbacks, fix a readme error), after complaining, that their selfbranding efforts are outrageous (take over the bootscreen with their logo, take over the default skin with their logo) compared to what they have actually delivered so far - in terms of moving the scene along.

    Reason given for the ban was:
    Not anything I said, but actually "the attitude".

    Swingflip (probably responsible for the ban) doubled down in here on "attitude being hurtful":
    https://old.reddit.com/r/PlaystationClassic/comments/af5o18/who_bleemsync_is_and_who_they_are_not/

    The two aspects he mentioned as far as their contribution goes (disabling DRM, "safer backup method"), hasnt been released so far. And basically comes down to enabling ssh and ftp connectability via a USB male to USB male cable - which not many people will ever use.

    They were overzealous in putting out their branding everywhere - and now are responsible for having their critics banned because of "wrong attitude".

    So enjoy their teaser videos and branded themes, and music features, but know - that they are mostly show, and no substance. While taking in other peoples work (not in violation of a licensing agreement - thats fair), and largely being championed for it.

    Previous thread, that was "countered" with an entirely made up statement that subsumized other peoples work and efforts within their project umbrella. That was unfair - but reddit eat it up.
    https://old.reddit.com/r/Playstatio...4/you_dont_deserve_free_and_should_be_banned/

    To summerize: I was banned because my "attitude" would hurt the "feelings" of their "many contributers", who also created "great themes voluntarily". Thats people demanding safe spaces - and not to be looked at to closely, because it would hurt their believes or public images.

    Also - got lovely responses as PMs supporting my position even after the ban - but thats just a nice to have. Still no reaction as to what substantial "fault" I commited, by insisting to tell people twice, what Bleemsync actually did contribute.

    The entire "post history" responsible for the ban is within the two threads I linked. There was nothing more.

    Look bud, I enjoy a bit of Jordan Peterson as much as the next man, but this is console hacking and homebrew. There is a reason so many people are reluctant to tolerate your rants, it's because it feels like you're trying to forcefully inject something that doesn't belong here. Now go tidy your room :)

    All I care about is getting Version 1. I'd rather it not have a theme that detracts from the appearance of a Sony Playstation however.

    Yep, everything "stock looking" but redirecting to RetroArch's emu. That's all I want. I rather leave this classic consoles stock as I use my Wii for roms while connecting the nes/snes classic controllers to the Wii Remote but the Wii doesn't run PSX well.

    Got mine for $60 at Walmart, and soft-modded it with Retroarch. Runs everything flawlessly for a Beta.

    Am I the only one to have to fully format the SD card every day, without even having time to copy the backups before the console is corrupted the SD card?
    I don't know how you do it: I find the hacked console unplayable with this huge writing problem, regardless of the SD card used ...

    Thanks in advance.

    It actually works great for me, but I do use the SLUS code as filenames for everything. I heard it can have issues if you use normal game names for filename.

    The sorting is awesome btw. Especially, as it allows sorting by alpha title, which means you can add an internal name for a game to use for sorting instead. So for example, Final Fantasy VII and Finally Fantasy IX can be sorted properly instead of alphabetically which shows them the wrong way round.
