Hey guys, like i luv this listing of urs converting n stuff wouldn't it be better just loading isos or Cso onto PSX. But anyways is it worth no buying the Xperia Play and waiting for either Xperia play 2 or Xperia DUO ??? PLZ tell
hey im trying to do this, have followed instructions over and over, everytime i try and paste either of the files i get a read only error. i downloaded the playstation file instead but the second file you say copy i still cant paste due to the read only and also cant find it floating about online :/ would really appreciate your help, dont know what iv missed. i only bought it today just for this reason.
update 2.3.4 currently has problems running this..stay to 2.3.3 please update if anyone figures this out. cant play my games in 2.3.4 crash bandicoot had an update so i thnk maybe u need to get the apk file again based on the update?pls upload it for me, root explorer doesnt work on my phone dont know why so i cant do the steps in getting the file on my own phone.
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...

ive done all the first bit get to the launching of the converter check tall the boxs and dont get squat, and hey if anyone knows if they have goten Finale Fantasy Tactics to work or not that would be kool, if not ima try and get it to work
i have been doing this for so many games, i can install them and get them to appear on the phone and in the playstation area buy everytime i open them they just close instantly.
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
Final Fantasy VII, Ehrgeiz, Evil Dead Hail to the King, and GT2. I have yet to try my other games as of yet and all work fine. Ehrgeiz has a slight slow down at times but is completely playable.
I had a small problem on Windows 7 but fixed it after doing some research. If it was the java issue saying you did not have it installed you need to press back and then next again and it would recognize it. Kinda dumb but that's where I ran into a problem.
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?
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

hey guys new to the xperia play, i followed the advice here, where im getting lost is the part where you enter the iso, i have no ps1 games i traded them in years ago, where can i get the iso for a few games, sorry for the newb questions
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.
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

How do i play ps games on my xperia play, i brought it used it came with android 4.0 ice cream sandwich but there's no PS store, also i read that i need psx emulator but i don't have the original crash bandicoot as it didn't come with the phone, all help would be greatful, thanks
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)
Ok so let me start off I am very new at this and I know there is detailed steps on how to convert but I do not understand it at all is there anyone willing to helping like with a step by step on how to do this id really like to learn how to do this I am disabled and ps1 games on my phone would helpalot lol if anyone would be willing to email me its firstname.lastname@example.org thanks so much
