I have not heard that, however I am on 2.3.3. Verizon is always last to push out updates, so I figure I'll be on 2.3.3 for a while

Does anyone have any idea how to fix the sound issue with games? I have tried playing a few and the game play is great just the sound is choppy.

Hey all, new here and getting my Xperia play tomorrow.

Thanks to the OP for putting these instructions here, looking forward to trying this out

Did anybody try Speed Freaks? it was one of my fave PS1 games. I would post a link but cause i'm so new the forum won't let me.

I can confirm this does not work if you have 2.3.4.
First I thought it was my phone (that JAVA based conversion tool reported an error), so I tried to find a required apk. file on the web.
Then I converted again, this time no errors but the game still won't work. After that health warning screen, it returns back to the Android home screen. I tried 2 PSX games, none worked. Maybe we need to wait for the author to update that tool...

Just to confirm, I tested Spyro with the files from a 2.3.3 phone but the game doesn't go past the health and safety screen on 2.3.4!!

Does anyone confirm that this is not working? I tried with some 10 different games, did everything exactly as in the tutorial, and not a single one worked. Not even started.

Ok, the man himself comfirmed it: Yifan Lu

too bad, never got to put a single one of my old psx games on my new phone... :/

Edit: good news on xda forums! it seems that if you use the USA apk for crash instead of the euro one, the emu works with your psxperia rips! niiice

Hi aek, welcome to AF!

Whilst it's cool to discuss the process of getting the games to work, due to copyright/legal issues, we can't actually tell you where to obtain the ROMs.

You can download the ROMs if you already own a copy of the game on disc, but otherwise it's classed as piracy and that goes against the site rules and guidelines.

I hope you understand, however my door is open if you need further clarifiction.

There in lies the problem, there is a compaitability page floating around the web for the xperia and psx games that work, etc.

I tried about 40-45 games, approx 15-20 out of the 40-45 tested worked and ran well on the xperia play, for me it was trial and error .

I will say this, ALL 'EA' games that I tried failed, nascar, hockey, madden etc etc, couldn't get one to work.

I managed to get Ace Combat 2, and Wipeout 3, but it took some time. In the end, the novelty of the new phone will wear off, and you'll realise your playing a 15/16 year old game on a mediocre sony playstation phone.

If I do play a game on this thing, which only comes with extreme fits of boredom, it's a MAME game, to each their own, but thats my humble opinion

Also last but not least has anyone tried the games that do not work or crash after changing the (boolean name="SW-render" value="false" /) to true in the preferences file. It made Final Fantasy VII work without any slowdown and Ehrgeiz work with minimal slowdown.
I did this with Final Fantasy VII by copying the Preferences from Crash Bandicoot and pasting it in the UCC folder. I am still experiencing a force close at the "Update" window. Any suggestions?

Default ps2 on xperia play - blasfomy or not>?

omfg guys cant wait to tell you after 2 hours of tinkering i finally got A (just one) ps2 game to work on xperia play. i put an iso into psxperia version 2 (once all steps followed) once it had given me the apk and zpak i put the new zpak back in to the extract part (then followed steps) . with the second apk and zpak put in the correct place on on your memory card. install it then restart your phone, (note the amount of ram it requires is to play on the phone is too much so to make it work put the phone in airplane mode) and ta darrrr ps2 on xperia play this will only work on phones with enough specs to play certain games, each game requires different amounts of different specs

Default Quality?

Something i haven't even actually heard from anyone yet, does converting these actually improve the quality and lag of the games as opposed to standard Emu's like FPSE?

R-Type Delta runs horribly on that.

Question for those who've had success with this: does it only work with .bin files?
Some of mine are .7z and .mdf. The one I tried that was a .bin worked, but the others open and immediately close. Based on the instructions it seems like this should happen the first time but not after that. The games in question are all listed as playable in the compatibility list.
Any suggestions?

Happy Current status on working games

theatremouse, I've only tried .bin files, but I have also only tried FFVII and Xenogears and both seem to work after I apply the "true" value on SW-render in preferences. I also used a freeware program, ImgBurn, that was recommended on another forum for psx4droid. It didn't work well with that but I used the same file using this process and it worked.

I still got more games to try that I own, but most are already on the compatibility list. I haven't attempted to try another other format other than .bin since that is already working.

Not sure if that answered much but good luck to ya. Also thanks to everyone, especially Yifan Lu, who has posted since I was able to get it working with all those "notes".

I've sat here for the last two days, trying every PS1 game I have (yep, kept them all) but none of them work. I can't get past the 'Cannot build APK! Java says: Executable did not return without error.' error.
I went through more than 10 different programs that claim to make iso files from cds (but couldn't) before I read here that you can use bin files (This is the only place that mentions anything but isos).
Am I doing something wrong or does this just not work in Win7? (been trawling the interweb but getting mixed messages on it)
Also, I'm on 2.3.4 so am I just wasting my time anyway?

jtwo - go to a store and buy the cd's again. We dont condone pirating software on this board.

I thought I had this working before I rooted my phone. I must have done it after I rooted (I upgraded before I knew I couldn't root that update, so I flashed it back).

I have one game with an error.. FFVII right after the submarine mission, every dialog box is outlined in yellow. I don't remember if saving after completing the mission and reloading actually fixes it.. running with software emulation. It does fix it.

fero - I did it from win 7, I only got it to work with bins. I believe I used IMGburn.. could be wrong

It does not. I had done it while on 2.3.3 and had some games working. Carrier forced 2.3.4 on me and they no longer work. It opens, seems like it will work, shows the warning about seizures and whatnot, but then quits. (This example is from games that previously were playable)
