This is the download page for Wagic, the homebrew. Wagic is an internationally acclaimed open source Trading Card Game simulation, made by card games fans and backed up by a large community of players and modders. The project has been active since 2008 and supports a massive amount of cards. Wagic is especially adapted to mobile devices (PSP, iPhone, iPad, Android,…) but also works on Windows and Linux PC. If you’re looking for more info about this project, check the following links:
Wagic FAQMedia (Wagic Screenshots & videos)Wagic forums

Wagic works on Windows, Linux, the nokia N900 (maemo), the Nokia N9 (meego), Android (tablets and phones), OUYA, iOS(iPhone/iPad/iPad2) and the Sony PSP (Wagic does not require you to hack your PSP).

Download the latest version of Wagic

Disclaimer: I have not personally been involved with the development of Wagic since 2012. The latest “official” version released while I was driving the project is version 0.18.6, which can be downloaded in the next section below.

However there is an active community of fans and developers who keep maintaining Wagic. Although I cannot guarantee the quality of the recent releases (not that I don’t believe the people working on it are good, but only – again – because I have not been involved in the project for years), I recommend you give them a try:

Download Wagic 0.18.6 (last version released by Wololo, 2012)

Each release is extensively tested on several machines including my own PSP/Computer/Android phone. However Wagic is a work in progress so please check the buglist.


For some of these builds, you will also need the Core files when they are not included in the archive. Wagic 0.18.6 Core files: all platforms except iOS  – iOS version.

Wagic is 100% free.

Updating Wagic


If you have version 0.16.1 or lower, it is recommended that you erase your current Wagic install and reinstall from scratch. Go to our forums for detailed help on how to keep your progress

If you have version 0.17.0 or higher, follow these steps:

  • IF you have mods: It is recommended that you delete all mods from your current Wagic install
  • Erase all files named core_*.zip in your Res folder (Note: this is not compulsory but strongly recommended for performance reasons)
  • Simply extract the zip into your existing Wagic installation folder, in order to overwrite the current binary (EBOOT.PBP on the PSP, and Wagic.exe on windows). You’re done


  • If you have version 0.17.1 or lower, first uninstall your current installation of Wagic (in “Manage applications”)
  • It is strongly recommended to delete all “core_*.zip” files from your current Wagic installation. This is not done automatically! Keeping these files should not prevent the game from running, but could yield weird results and will be bad for performance
  • Once the two previous steps are done, install the Wagic apk like you would install any other third party application

If your android refuses to install a new version of Wagic, please make sure that you uninstalled the previous version. We had to change out certificates recently (in 0.18.0) which prevents Android from installing wagic 0.18 over a previous 0.17 install.




Windows Version

If you get an error complaining about MSCVP100.dll missing you probably need to install the following Visual++ package from microsoft here. If you still have problems, check the forum thread

Android and iOS versions

The Android and iOS port of Wagic are still very early releases and we are aware that they are not perfect. If you’re a dev and think you can help making this project even better, please contact us!

Linux Version

We don’t officially support the linux version, it is distributed here for convenience. However if you have issues running Wagic on *nix, ask for help on the forums, you might be lucky and a good soul could have an answer for you

    When I attempt to click on the Donate button paypal has an error. It says:

    “Error Detected

    We were unable to decrypt the certificate id.”

    This is not a browser errror. It seems like paypal is sending this error message.

  2. wololo says:

    Thanks. It seems the “encrypted” version of their button is not working for me. I think it’s corrected. Thanks for your support !

  4. denvy says:

    i get an error when I open the game
    The game could not be started (80020148)
    i have a psp slim please respond cause i want to play badly

  5. wololo says:

    hey denvy, I guess your PSP doesn’t have a custom firmware… please go to PSP dedicated forums for that specific problem.
    It is also possible that the game does not work on the slim, although I highly doubt that, since it was programmed from the start to work on firmwares 3.xx

  6. gdspsp says:

    congratulations on the upcoming marriage, i just was married 4 months ago. i am going to check out you rh/b because i have wanted this concept on my psp.

  7. brooks says:

    every time i attempt to copy or extract it, it ends up corrupted

  8. wololo says:

    Do you mean that the zip file is corrupted, or the game appears as “corrupted” on your psp ?
    In the first case, try to download the game from another site, either qj.net or pspgen.com
    In the second case, I suspect this is because the game was put in an incorrect folder ? This is a 3.xx game, so that may be the reason ?

  9. john says:

    what folder are you supposed to download it in?

  10. john says:

    nvm i found it, but do you need a custom firmware?

  11. lainlives says:

    i love this homebrew, but one option that id like to see implemented into the options menu some time down the line is an ability to disable teh nub

  12. Paul says:

    how do i download it into my pc?

  13. archie says:

    how do i install =)

  14. wololo says:

    @archie: there’s a readme file in the zip archive that explains how to install the game, it should be pretty straightforward. If you have problems, please tell me specifically what you did and what happened.
    Oh, and that’s obvious, but you need a custom firmware to run this game.

  15. Blackthorn says:

    I am getting a lot of lockups using the deck builder when cycling through the cards. It just locks up at random, not sure why as there’s nothing specific I’m doing when it locks up, although it seems to happen a bit when I add a card to my deck.

    Looking superb otherwise!

  16. wololo says:

    Hey Blackthorn. The reason for the crashes in the Deck Editor is unknown from me yet, but I confirm it happens to me too from time to time. Fixing that is one of my priorities for the next release.

  17. biohazard says:

    Hi, i see in your PDF file your homebrew running in a emulator.
    What emulator you is using to run homebrews?

  18. wololo says:

    Hi biohazard, I am not running the homebrew in an emulator, this is the windows version of the homebrew that I use for developing and screen captures.

  19. DangerMouse says:

    I love the whole idea, and am definitely looking forward to a more stable release, and of course more cards from all the other sets, ie, Arabian Nights, Antiquities, Legends, The Dark, Fallen Empires, Homelands, Ice Age, Alliances, Coldsnap, Mirage, Visions, Weatherlight, Tempest, Stronghold, Exodus, Urza’s Saga, Urza’s Legacy, Urza’s Destiny, Mercadian Masques, Nemesis, Prophecy, Invasion, Planeshift, Apocalypse, Odyssey, Torment, Judgment, Onslaught, Legions, Scourge, Mirrodin, Darksteel, Fifth Dawn, Champions of Kamigawa, Betrayers of Kamigawa, Saviors of Kamigawa, Ravnica: City of Guilds, Guildpact, Dissension, Time Spiral, Planar Chaos, Future Sight, Lorwyn, Morningtide, Shadowmoor, Eventide, Shards of Alara, Conflux, and etc for the future coming sets. That would definitely be an amazing amount of card support for complete sets, but I think you started off in the right place, but it would be nice to see the store have sorted sets to make purchases from as the version progress. Of course bug free releases would be great too, but I still love the whole idea.

  20. Elfo says:

    Greetings from Brazil =)

    I’m still downloading this and the other MTG homebrew for psp, but want to say thanks for the effort on the advance.

    Hope that in the future we have a perfecty functional mtg game on psp, with all sets (it would be huge with all the card images =P) and maybe even a online server (dream…).

    Well, i will give a look and see if I can help with something…

  21. Blixt says:

    Good job really.

    Hope the further rules will be implemented like the creature protection avoid to be blocked by the indicate colors, the persist abilities and some creatures complicated skill like Dwarven warriors…

    BUT beware of the freeze on psp slim 3.90 (for me) that once completly blocked the boot until I decided to plug in to test the recharge light. NO criticals problems on 3.40 Fat however.

    I will search the creation card section to help you cause you deserved it ;).
    PS: I recommand the Hyptnotic specter from 3rd edition cause the 10th hasn’t flying °_°.

  22. seth says:

    I dont know how to get the jge on the psp. I need some help i have psp 3.80 and I need the files for it because im getting the error (80020148) I can prolly help get the game fully working and help get some bugs fixed if i can just get the jge files that would just be lovely.

  23. wololo says:

    @Blixt : yes, if the psp crashes while you have low battery, then you’ll have to plug it in to the AC adaptor. You’re not the first one noticing it, and the first time it happened it freaked me out :p

    @seth : I sent you an email. As far as I know nobody except me have ever compiled the source, so I’m not even sure the zip package available here contains all the files.

  24. Erik says:

    hi :
    congratulations for the game, look interesting! but…
    i get an error when I open the game
    The game could not be started (80020148)
    the version of the system is 4.0.1 , do you think is for that?

  25. wololo says:

    Hi Erik. You need a custom Firmware to run the game.
    If you have a CFW, then be sure to put the game in the GAME Folder, not in the Game150 folder

  26. Marco says:

    I love this homebrew. I’ve been waiting for a single player “W”agic game ever since I used to play it on the PC. I had a couple thoughts.

    (1) I realize that you’re probably busy trying to stabilize the basic program, but would you consider adding a adventure style map where you obtain new cards by fighting enemies or a story type mode? I don’t know why I liked this on the PC, and it isn’t true to the game, but it was fun for me.

    (2) I can’t seem to use spellblast. When I cast it, how do I target the spell in question? If I interrupt, it dissapears from the screen. Am I missing something in the instructions?

    Thanks and please keep up the great work.

  27. wololo says:

    Hello Marco.
    counterspells (including spellBlast) are completely bugged and simply do not work in the current version.

    Lots of people have asked for a “campaign” mode, and I’d like to this this happening too. I haven’t worked on it currently, but this is in the list of thing I want 🙂

  28. kithwin says:

    Can I download this for free?
    *hides in shame*

  29. wololo says:

    Well, you’re on the download page, and there’s a link, so, yes, why not ?

  30. Paulos says:

    Greetings from Greece! I’m Obliged to say that is a fine piece of homebrew you have here! Brilliant looking, even though is an early beta version! please keep the project up and we shall support you

  31. Marco says:

    I just thought of something else last night. I’m sure that this has been suggested before as well, but another option instead of a campaign mode would be “tournaments” against AI. I know NOTHING about programming (shame) but it seems like setting up a bracket wouldn’t be as difficult as setting up a campaign mode.

    Well anyway, please don’t take anything I say as a knock on your great homebrew. I look forward to another release with more stability and more cards.

    (My vote for the new cards would be counter spells)

  32. DingDong says:

    im trying to install the game, but it still doesn’t want to work. it doesnt show up on the game selections… i tried putting it in the main area, ISO, PSP folder, game folder… i extracted the file though… i only transferred the PSP folder from the zip file which includes the game folder, then in it is the BOOT and res.

  33. DingDong says:

    it ses game is corrupted..

  34. wololo says:

    Make sure that your Game folder is set to Kernel 3xx (I think it is the default on new CFWs…)
    What CFW are you running on ? I know that it runs correctly on 3.71 , 4.01, and 5.00 (M33, obviously), so there shouldn’t be any huge issue with any CFW, really…

  35. Jeremy says:

    I have system version 5.01 and everything thing downloads fine, but when i got to play it says : This game cannot be started. The data is corrupted.

  36. wololo says:

    Hi Jeremy, do you have any problem with other homebrews ?
    This game is set to run on the 3.xx kernel. I haven’t tried myself on a 5.01 M33, but got report it works fine.

  37. Jeremy says:

    everything downloads great. i even added additional card packs such as ice age and dark. i was really excited about magic on psps. i even tried downloading alpha and 1.0 after 0.2.1 didnt work first and no successful results. vasically, all the card sets are downloaded, but playing the actual game has not been possible yet
