Proceeding his Beats of Rage PS2 Homebrew Game Mods for PS4 & PS5, today developer @Markus95 (aka @Kus00095) released via Twitter a RetroArch PS2 Emulators Pack including GameBoy Color, Master System, Mega Drive, Neo-Geo Pocket, NES and SNES Emulators for PS4 9.00+ and PS5 6.50 consoles to use with the Mast1c0re PS2 Exploit for reliving classic games in the PS4Scene and PS5Scene. šŸ•¹ļø

:arrow: New RetroArch Cores, More Emulator Features for PS4 & PS5 Scene

This comes following the previously released RetroArch PS2 on PS4 (2048 and QuickNES Cores) PKGs, RetroArch QuickNES & Picodrive PS2 on PS4 Emulator Ports, RetroArch mGBA Gameboy / Gameboy Color PS2 on PS4 Emulator Port and PS4 RetroArch Native Emulator Port (Unofficial) PKG as many are awaiting a RetroArch PS4 Official Version to arrive.

Here's further details on the RetroArch PS2 Emulators Pack for PS4 & PS5 from alongside a demonstration video below from Markus95^^'s YouTube Channel, roughly translated: A Shower of Emulators for PlayStation 5

We continue on its momentum, as promised in the news on Beats of Rage for PS5, I announced you preparing other 'things' to come... Here they are at their destination ^^, a pack of functional emulators on PS4 9.00+ and PS5 6.50 thanks to the Mast1c0re hack once again.

This emulator pack includes several CORES of Retroarch, which we no longer present, which are:
  • Picodrive (Megadrive)
  • SMSPlus (Master System and Game Gear)
  • SNES9x2002 (Super Nintendo)
  • QuickNES (Nintendo Nes)
  • Gambatte (Game Boy and Game Boy Color)
  • Race (Neo Geo Pocket and Neo Geo Pocket Color)
You will therefore be able to launch your ROMs on your console, as usual the emus are delivered without ROMs, you will have to add them yourself in the ROMS folder present in the .iso.

To do this you must extract all the files and folders from the .iso in CDgen V3, then add your ROMs in the ROMS folder and to finish always with CDgen create an .iso.

Small precision, some emulators include 2 more folders: CORES and INFO you will then have to configure the paths in retroarch to these 2 folders. This is very important without this redirection the emulator will display an error and return to the Menu of your consoles.

The exact manipulation is in the video below:

Retroarch on PS5

You will therefore find in this pack 5 iSOs, one iSO per emulator, it would have been possible to group all the emulators into a single iSO but, given the loading time of the iSOs by Mast1c0re I let you imagine the time it would have taken to load more than +2 or 3 go of ROMs (yes, yes we know that put all the fullsets ^^)

Thanks a lot!

It's impressive what the devs can do with the hacked PS2 emulation layer of PS4 and PS5.
I hope they will break the HV and XOM on PS5 in the near future for a full jailbreak.
