Picture of PSP Joystick Emulation Station for PC
Ever wanted to revisit the good old days of gaming systems? SNES, NES, And N64. Got a home brew enabled PSP? I've found a really cool way to relive some of these classics in style. Now since we will be dealing with emulators, there is a concern for rom piracy. I do not endorse piracy, and I do not encourage the download of commercial games. If you are caught downloading or stealing games, etc, etc, I will not be at fault. With the little disclaimer out of the way lets get started! =]

The concept of what I am trying to do, except in this case I'm controlling the mouse.

Step 1: The Files

Ok, now what you will need is:

-computer thats fairly decent
-home brew enabled PSP, a great site to get you started on home brew PSP Hacking
-wireless router
-the included files

Download this: Wifi Controller
And this: NES Emulator

1.) In the Wifi Controller archive take the "PC" folder and drag it to your deasktop, then take the "SCEWiFiController" folder and "%SCEWiFiController" folder under "1.50\PSP\GAME\" and drag them to "X\PSP\GAME150\" X being the drive letter of your PSP.

2.) Next go to the "SCEWiFiController" folder and find the file "wifi.cfg" open it with word pad.

3.) Now go to Run... under the Start Menu and type "cmd" a black box will appear, and type "ipconfig" without the quotations.

4.) Find the text "IP Address. . . . . . . . .:" or something similar, what you need to copy are the last four numbers separated by periods.

5.) Copy these numbers and type them where the similar numbers appear in the "wifi.cfg" file.

6.) Close and save the "wifi.cfg" file.

7.) Download and install: PPJoy

8.) After it is installed open up your "Control Panel" and click on "Parallel Port Joysticks".

9.) When the window comes up click "Add..." at the bottom. On the next screen change "Parallel port" to "Virtual joysticks" and then click "Add."

10.) It will want to install some drivers so either have it scan automatically or point it to the directory you installed PPJoy to.

11.) After it is done installing, click the "PPJoy Virtual joystick 1" in the menu and click "Mapping..."

12.) Choose "Set a custom mapping for this controller" and click "Next."

13.)Set the options to the following:
Axes = 2 (X Axis and Y Axis)
Buttons = 9
POV hats = 1

X Axis = Analog 0
Y Axis = Analog 1

Button 1 = nothing
Button 2 = Digital 0
Button 3 = Digital 1
Button 4 = Digital 2
Button 5 = Digital 3
Button 6 = Digital 4
Button 7 = Digital 5
Button 8 = Digital 11
Button 9 = Digital 10

Directional button POV
North = Digital 6
East = Digital 7
West = Digital 9
South = Digital 8

14.) Inside the "PC" folder on your Desktop open the program "WiFiServer.exe".

its kind of funny because you can have a NES emulator on the psp, with no need for this. but i do like the fact that is can be used for other things

Legal Status of ROMs
ac1D krusty7 years ago
24 hours claimSome ROM websites claim it is legal to download and keep a ROM of a game one doesn't own for as long as 24 hours, after which it is one's responsibility to delete it. Even though it is widespread (most likely due to copycat reactions), this claim is completely false, as there has never been such a law.
sorry, this is not totally true.
this apply to some country, and not all.
for exemple, Nintendo europe who released a emulator for the news-paper writer/game tester, clairly say on their site That you can use a ROM for 24hours, after this, you are in the illegality.
this is how all these romur started, as far as i know.
correct me if i am wrong!

You may wish to read this:
Nintendo's Legal Information

It's the US site, but I feel it would stand for Europe as well.

Important note this is from Nintendo's legal department and is their "interpretation" of US copyright law as it pertains to their media. There have been no cases that I know of in which US courts have ruled on the legality of ROMs being used by individuals who own the actual cartridge of the same game. Consequently, it is still a legal gray area. Their wording is important too they say that "whether you have an authentic game or not, or whether you have possession of a Nintendo ROM for a limited amount of time, i.e. 24 hours, it is illegal to download and play a Nintendo ROM from the Internet." This suggests that if you had the capacity to copy the rom from the cartridge yourself you may not be violating copyright as you then would simply be backing up your own copy. Downloading from the internet necessarily involves other individuals and other aspects of copyright law.

Actually most games aren't illegal to ROM. I was reading a file that stated something about the fact that ROMs spread the game as advertising, something, something, something.
