A trip down homebrew lane: Basilisk II on PSP


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    Ah Basilisk II, the emu everyone forgot about.
    I remember using it back in ye olden PSP days but I can’t remember why…. probably the usual “cause I can” 😐

    Anywhoo a nicely written little article, well done!

    I would absolutely love SheepShaver on the Vita. I fire up SheepShaver at least once a week to play my old Mac games that I’ve saved for all of these years (Master of Orion 1 and 2, Civilization 1 and 2, Colonization, and Castles: Siege and Conquest being the favorites).

    If I can play correctly Spin doctor and Super Maze Wars, I’m the happiest guy on earth.

  5. I luv Mac

    Escape Velocity! That game would wonderfully translate to the Vita controls.

    Another awesome game: Harry the handsome Executive

    Dark Castle/Beyond DC would probably work really well aiming with the right stick. Beyond that, I I can’t think of what I’d want to play in a Mac emulator that wasn’t done much better on some other platform.

  7. go

    No valid disks are available. (when i try to install Mac OS)

  8. I used it for the “I can do it” thing.

    I’ve mirrored that homebrew on my server, too.

  9. There is certainly a great deal to find out about this topic.
    I really like all the points you have made.

    I remember when i had my psp 3000 with 6.20 and when the hen came i used this emulator, but maybe i overload the ram or the gpu cause after that my psp screen shutdown every 5 minutes. I deleted everithing but that remains and i need to use my warranty. At least i could say i have another os in my psp haha

  12. This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want?HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!
