PS3 - forgotten?

Postby gamba » Sun May 15, 2011 9:30 pm

Hey there,

I just wanted to ask you if you had any 'roadblock' on your way to the PS3 port?

I know this is just a 'port' and it's essentially made for the wii but I'd love to know if it is still in developement or you guys just dropped the port.


Thank you for your time. And have a great day.

PS: I do not ask for any ETA (so take your time, we are patient) :).

We hit a roadblock after getting pretty far. The dynamic recompiler we've written for Wii is totally incompatible with the PS3 :(

Even though both the consoles share the same CPU instruction sets (mostly), our dynarec is written for a PPC 32bit CPU following the EABI, whereas the PS3 needs PPC 64bit and ABI. We're in the process of rewriting it but it is a major task - this is what's causing the delay.

Wii port is also going to utilize the new dynamic recompiler since it'll be much faster - that's the main hold up.

But there's going to be a another wii64 release before the dynamic recompiler is added, right?

I have another question emu_kidid if it doesnt bother you.


Do you see any BIG difference between the wii port to PS3 (upcoming) port in terms of speed, playability, glitches/bugs? I am really curious to know what pros or cons for both ports.

Thank you again for your time.

Ploggy, we are wrapping up other features too but by the time those are completed it may be around the same time as the recompiler rewrite.

gamba, the PS3 port is a lot easier for us to do since we have so much more memory to play with. In terms of speed, it should be full FPS for all games, as far as playability and compatibility go, it'll be just like Wii64 on the Wii - heck it'll even look the same :)

Fair enough, I just know how much effort goes into writing a dynamic recompiler. ;)

Thank you again for your answer. Well, for more speed you could definitely use the leaked Sony SDK, much more complete than the PSL1GHT. Here what I'll quote from a well known homebrew-emu PS3 developer said about this issue :


They insist on using PSL1GHT though - and because of that insistence, that means losing out on runtime Cg compiler support



I'd just offer them some advice though - performance already isn't great as it is with PS3 - if they aren't going to use the SPUs - better use the right tools for the right job because they're going to need all the breathing room on the PPU that they can get


Tell me what do you think :)

I think whoever said that doesn't know much :P

We have hardware accelerated graphics already using PSL1GHT and although the shaders are static (no compiler support), it is fine, just more work for us.

We don't use the SPUs either, but we shouldn't, after all, we're emulating a 93mhz cpu on a 3ghz or so cpu :P
