    Glad I could help, if you get some games to work that are not mentioned in this thread, please share, I've tried about 40 titles so far, and only got 10-11 to work, a lot of time spent, and not much pay off. If Gran Turismo 2 didn't work i'd be shattered lol :p

    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.

    It is in android/data/(game file that is created)/files/ucc/randomly named folder/preferences If it is not there copy it from the same location in the crash bandicoot folder. Hope this helps you. Oh and after starting the game the file is usually created so either way will work in getting the file.

    I noticed that the 'preferences' is only accessible if you create a save point in that particular game. So I tried this modification, and sadly my wipeout 3 still crashes, it infact made no difference at all, crashes after i make the first turn in the game, at every track, its weird.

    It also did not help with Colin McRae rally 2, however...

    it did fix the graphic artifacts, blockiness issues in Marvel vs capcom and bubble bobble.

    Got some time, and tried a few more games...

    Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes works fine
    40 Winks works fine

    Anyone have any luck with the James Bond games? I get parse errors with Tomorrow Never Dies and The World is not Enough. Too bad...I wanted some 007 on my phone :mad:

    you don't have to connect to a pc, but you do need a pc to do the 'conversion' of the crash game from the phone to a converted ps1 game.

    If they ever release FF7 or MSG2, I bet the compatibility will sky rocket.

    This is amazing! I have just got Gran Turismo 2 working perfectly.

    My only question is though, what would you guys recommend, this or FPSE?
    There will only be a few games i will convert, pretty much the top 10 list you would find on any website so as long as the main games work i am fine.

    The noticable difference of this over FPSE so far is the saving ability, my GT2 wouldnt save on FPSE bebause it said there was no BIOS set but every time i selected the BIOS it still wouldnt save. This version saves perfectly!

    Gran Turismo 2 - works perfectly
    Tekken 3 - works perfectly
    Street Fighter Alpha 3 - flickers a lot during play
    Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 - Skater is a stretched out mess of polygons
