    Those familiar with the PlayStation 1 and Dreamcast may recall bleem!, a PS1 emulator which has inspired the name of a recently released piece of software called BleemSync. While running backups of PS1 games on the PlayStation Classic has been possible in the past few days, BleemSync looks to simplify the process of adding new games to your PS Classic. To use it, you need a USB stick named SONY, and to make sure it's formatted to FAT32. Next, you'll want to copy the contents of BleemSync to the root of the USB, as well as create a folder called Games. The folder structure is specific and must be done precisely. A test folder is included in the download to give a better look at how things need to be named.

    You'll need an .ini and .cfg for each game, along with a legally dumped .bin and .cue of whichever title you want to play. Each .ini must point toward the correct .bin file, with a title, publisher, player number, and year of release. An example is below.

    The .png (226x226) represents a picture of the boxart. Once that's done, all that's left to do is run BleemSync, and put the USB drive in the PlayStation Classic, where your games should show up and be playable after a reboot.

    Well that's neat.

    Does the console run the backups off the USB stick, or does it copy them to the internal memory first?

    (i.e. how much space do you have available?)

    It seems like they were using this to test games on the system before deciding on a final list, and forgot to remove it before release. Or maybe someone working at Sony "forgot" to remove it so that we could discover it.
    Seems like it runs them from the USB. Not as clean of a solution as having everything integrated like with the SNES and NES Classic, but a lot more useful.

    from the readme

    "On the root of your flash drive, create a Games folder. In this folder, create a folder for each game you would like to add to the system."

    i think that means the games get installed to the PSC's memory. i guess someone will have to install one at a time, then when the console gets bricked, we will know the limit. is this a dsi?

    Still pretty bad emulation that you get with the console.
    The frametime is horrible :>

    Would be great if this would support PBP-Files like the first hack because

    - they are smaller in size
    - they only need one file per game (not .bin + .cue)

    ...but who wants to do that if you can mod your SNES Classic to have better framerate and less lagg as well?

    Since people say the Emulation hardware itself is shit, would be nice to just be able to order just the shell of the PS Classic, that way you can put a raspberry pi in there or something. But, on topic, this is awesome. The game selection was horseshit.

    They don't get installed to the PSC's memory. They run directly from the USB. The PSC is tricked into thinking the USB is it's internal storage. There WAS a limit of 25 games in TOTAL as well.

    Awesome progress, sadly it doesn’t fix the fact that most games won’t run as they should. Gonna give this a miss until the emulation is fixed.
