Well, this time it didn't took long since the last Progress Report. And since the last month showed us that more and more PS3 Game Titles getting supported for this Emulator (which is very good as well), this month the Great Team behind RPCS3 anoounces in their newest Progress Report for June 2018, that they gained the ability to run PS1 Classics via RPCS3! Yes you read it right, PlayStation 1 Game Titles running via RPCS3. Althought that they already previewed this achievement a few weeks before and the fact that only those named "PS1 Classics" from the PlayStation Store will be able to run on RPCS3 due to software limitations from the original PS1 Emulator on PS3, it is still great to see what's actually possible throught Emulation by "Emulating a PS1 Game on a emulated PS3". Now after you read this last sentence, imagine the Inception Horn is ringing in your mind.
Progress Report: June 2018
Over the course of June RPCS3 saw a great deal of improvements to rendering and compatibility. By rewriting RPCS3's MSAA implementation kd-11 managed to fix outstanding issues with games which suffered from scaling issues or displayed garbage.
This month RPCS3 gained the ability to run PS1 Classic titles!
The PlayStation 3 has various types of software and hardware emulators for the most of Sony’s previous generation consoles. For the PS1, 3 software emulators were present within the firmware, namely ps1_emu (runs PS1 discs), ps1_netemu (runs PS1 classics available on the PS Store in .pkg format) and ps1_newemu (supposedly an enhanced version of ps1_netemu). However, similar to VSH, these emulators call sys_storage directly instead of using the file access library. Since RPCS3 currently has no implementation of sys_storage, support for these emulators wasn’t possible.
However, while researching VSH functionality for RPCS3, clienthax discovered that ps1_newemu did not require sys_storage implementation which allowed PS1 classics to boot when the firmware libraries loading was set to ‘none’. However, games would still crash shortly after booting as they called on an unimplemented function, sys_io_3733EA3C, to get input data. Further debugging revealed this function to be cellPadGetDataExtra with a few additional checks. Simply returning the same function fixed the crash and allowed the PS1 Classic titles to progress ingame!
Soon after clienthax’s PR was merged into master, Nekotekina made various improvements surrounding PS1 emulation such as allowing these titles to boot from the recents list, fix PPU and SPU cache from generating multiple times when ps1_newemu only requires it to be done once and allow custom per-game settings for these titles.
Thanks to above contributions, RPCS3 gained the ability to run PS1 Classic titles! While RPCS3 only supports PSN versions of them, most (if not all) are playable and run well.

4.85 Flash Writer Released (CFW PS3 Models Only) - Now go from 4.85 OFW to 4.85 HFW to a 4.85 CFWIt looks like the 4.85 landscape is starting to take shape now as developer's around the scene have been updated the homebrew, utilities and tools that require updates (not all things require updates) and now the PS3Xploit Team released one of the missing pieces. The Flash Writer for 4.85 HFW has now arose and now you can make the jump from 4.85 OFW >> 4.85 HFW >> Execute Flash Writer >>> Install a 4.85 CFW. This release (utility) is ONLY for PlayStation 3 models that can install a Custom FirmWare, if your model can not install a CFW then look at PS3HEN as the next best alternative to cfw, which the team has an update around the corner as well (stay tuned for that soon), but back to the Flash Writer, If your are new to the tool that is executed from the PS3 Internet Browser, it simply provides those cfw capable models with the ability to install a Custom Firmware after the tool has done its magic to your console's internal flash. However, you must follow all instructions for a clean installation to avoid any issues during the process on the fully softmod exploit..Continue reading

IRISMAN + webMAN MOD - Updated with 4.85 CEX SupportDeveloper @aldostools recently updated two great projects of his with 4.85 firmware (cex) support. When the releases appeared over at brewology.com they were added to the 4.85 Update/CFW thread > here < but i wanted to get something up on the mainpage for the two apps as there are staples in the PS3 library of homebrew fame. For those whom may be new to PS3 homebrew, IRISMAN is a Game Manager (aka Backup Manager) that provides many features, While multiMAN / IRISMAN & ManaGunZ are all excellent Game Manager's they are all unique from each other, while all sharing the essentials. So no choice of the three is a bad one, but all 3 are different, IRISMAN is a fork from an earlier PS3 Homebrew Manager called IRIS Manager by Estwald & D_Skywalk but aldostools has taken the foundation of that project to new levels by adding a TON of functionality,.. Which bring us to Aldostools other project of webMAN MOD which is a fork of deank's original webMAN plugin. deank made a spectacular foundation and down right great plugin, but as the scene advanced developer aldostools stepped in with other devs and formed webMAN MOD fork and since that forked spawned developer aldostools has created one hell of a plugin with tons of functionality and great features. This plugin allow offers more features then all Sony Firmware updates combined and that is even close to being a discussion. These are to great projects to explore if you have not.Continue reading
