PS4/PS5 Emulator KyTy adds “work in progress” PS5 graphics code
KyTy is a “work-in progress” PS4/PS5 emulator, which already runs a handful of PS4 games. Until now, PS5 support only seemed theoretical, but this might have changed this week. A recent update to the repository indicates that developer InoriRus has started working on PS5 graphics.
What is Kyty
Kyty is a PS4/PS5 emulator (running on Windows x64) in early stages of development
From the Readme:
Graphics for PS5 is not yet implemented
It is possible to run some simple games for PS4
There maybe graphics glitches, crashes, freezes and low FPS. It’s OK for now.
Features that are not implemented:
What’s new in KyTy PS4/PS5 Emulator
This latest commit doesn’t come with a binary release, probably for good reasons. It looks like this latest update is only the very beginning of PS5 graphics supports, although the diff seems pretty significant. It would be interesting to see some level of PS5 emulation in action!
Additionally, since the May release of Kyty, InoriRus has apparently committed bug fixes, better texture support, AMD GPU fixes, and more. It might be worthwhile for someone to compile the latest and greatest to see if this improves PS4 Emulation.
In the meantime, you can still download the latest release to give a try to the PS4 emulation side of KyTy.
Download and run Kyty PS4 Emulator
You can download the Kyty emulator on the project’s github here.
To run the emulator:
- unzip the package in your folder of choice
- Have you executable (elf) PS4 files in a specific folder
- Run the launcher and create a configuration. Select the folder where your elf files are, and check “run elf” for the specified binary.
Keep in mind that this is in very early stage, do not expect miracles yet 🙂
You can check other PS4 emulators, some of which already run commercial games to some extent, on our PS4 emulator page.
