Over the holiday we saw a True Crime: Streets of LA PS2 FPKG for PS4, and following his PS4 Mednafen 2-Players Config Mod PlayStation 4 scene developer @Markus95 (aka @Kus00095) shared on Twitter a Nintendo 64 (N64) PS2 on PS4 Emulator Port demonstration video with details below. :bananaman14:

Based on the DaedalusX64 Nintendo 64 Emulator Github fork, belek666 also shared a daedalusps2.zip (34.2 MB) Daedalus PS2 binary stating: Put files/folders on root directory of mass, looks for roms in 'Roms' directory.

According to the Tweets from Markus00095 below, N64 PS2 on PS4 works but has issues since the only solution is to use mc0: (8 MB max) for games as mass: (USB) isn't enabled just cdfs: or mc0/mc1.

As a result of his tests he currently has no plans to release a N64 PS2 on PS4 PKG... however, those interested may want to experiment with the Daedalus.elf PS2 binary using the previously released PS2 ELF Loader for PS4 in the meantime.

So if one has a workin PS2 console, this Emu should work just fine right. I think I have one lying somewhere. Wouldnt mind trying out some hacked/modded N64 roms 🤔

Correct, the .elf binary was initially compiled for use on a PS2... so if you still have a PlayStation 2 laying around you should be able to load it using a PS2 ELF launcher such as Open PS2 Loader, uLaunchELF or perhaps the new PS2 Fortuna Homebrew Launcher by krat0s is worth a peek.

If there is an option to load PlayStation 2 ELF's directly with Rebug PS3 CFW (or multiMAN, webMAN, etc) then it should, otherwise you can try making the ELF into a PS2 ISO via CDGenPS2, putting it in dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/PS2ELFNAME.ISO, mounting the PS2 ISO then running the Rebug PS2 Launcher which works for non-backward compatible PS3 models.

Also for backwards-compatible consoles PS2 ELF's can be loaded on a PS3 using the Swap Magic DVD disc. Below is an example video... basically you'd make a folder called SWAPMAGIC in the root of your USB stick, rename the PS2 ELF file you want to launch to SWAPMAGIC.ELF (in caps) and put it inside the SWAPMAGIC folder to run it.
