POPStarter is a launcher which lets you play your PS1 games in combination with $ony’s PS1 emulator for PS2 (known as “POPS” or “SLBB-00001”).
Unlike the previous POPStarter versions and the proofs of concept, POPStarter r13 does NOT contain the emulator itself or libraries that belong to $ony.
It is safe to publish in forums/sites that don’t tolerate warez stuff, as long as it’s not repacked with the decrypted emulator files or things like a PS BIOS.
POPStarter is available for free download.
If you spent an outrageous amount of money in ordering a HDD that contains preinstalled games and POPStarter,
YOU HAVE BEEN ROBBED.
Never purchase a physical copy of POPStarter when the “seller” wants more $$$ than the media price and the shipping fees.
The official POPStarter 13 package doesn't contain anything that belong to $ony.
It's 100% free of $ony code and can be reposted anywere.
Please do not post direct links to the POPS binaries (POPS.ELF, POPS.PAK, POPS_IOX.PAK and IOPRP252.IMG)
in this thread.
