FPse for Android is a program designed to run PlayStation One games on devices running Android Operating System 2.1 to 4.x and up. FPse for arm is a project which started in 2001, ported from the PC version, FPSE made by LDchen. FPse For Android contains many features included : 7         Real-time save/load state 7         Force Feedback emulation (vibration) 7         True overlay pad widgets that emulate Digital Pads as well as Analog Pads 7         An many more, just read below REQUIREMENTS a) Any Android device running Android 2.1 to 4.x and up. b) A bios files named scph1001.bin is recommended the get the best experience.   (Not distributed with FPse For Android for copyright reasons). c) Game disks into files format. Supported image file formats: .iso, .bin, .nrg, .img,.mdf,.pbp,.bz, .Z. To create an image disk file, you must own the original PSX disc. Using the free program IMGBURN on your PC, rip the contents of the disk to generate a compatible image file in .bin and .cue file. There is a program called PocketISO, available in download section of the FPse For Android site. This program can be used to compress the image file for optimum support on FPse For Android, as well as ripping some media files  (not recommended to keep high level of compatibility). START, HOW TO Simply run FPse for Android. Use Menu shortcut. A menu will propose you many actions. You can start first with loading bios file, the recommended file is named 'scph1001.bin'. It's recommended to load bios file to get high compatibility and to be able to use internal savestates. Once bios is loaded you can Load your PSone disk image file, just select "Load Game" and browse to find and select your disk image file. The game will start. Depending on which device you have but if you aren't sure where are CD image files, just go to root then enter into /mnt to locate your storage path, some devices have external storage in /mnt/extSDcard. From the First menu you can enter into SETTINGS menu to select default options that will be applied to all games loaded after changes. Just keep in mind that once a game is loaded , many options are specific for this games, and if you want to apply default configuration later you'll need to go to MISC menu and load default config. When a Game is loaded the Menu can be accessed by pressing Menu button on Android 2.3 and older devices, and on Back button on Android 3.0 and newer.

Contact author at schtruck@gmail.com if all above steps doesent help and FPse stays in limited mode. Frequently asked questions: Here is the frequently asked questions regarding differents situations: - FPse is slow on my device how can i make FPse faster? Enable Frameskipping from VIDEO menu, Switch to Old Drawing mode from MISC menu, Disable SPUSYNC from audio menu. - FPse is suddendly slow while it was very fast previously? Restart your device to Free fragmented memory, check if your device is not in ECO mode, to be sure get a tool like CPU Master from market to check in which mode is your processor. Check if Dynamic interpreter is no set. And last go to MISC menu then reset settings - FPse goes to Orange logo then memcards manager, no game start? If you used archived disk Image files, be sure to uncompress them using the tool Zarchiver from your device, DO NOT USE ANDROZIP, it brake big files while uncompressing them. Check the size of your file, if not 0 bytes, or > 650mbytes - How to access memcards manager? If you have well loaded Bios file from main menu, just press the new button called Boot Bios - I cannot see my game from FPse? If your game was compressed, just uncompress it using Zarchiver. Browse from the root directory of your device, then enter into /mnt and look for sdcard directory or extSDcard This documentation is for information purposes only and does not reflect all the possibilities of FPSE for Android. 2014 Schtruck & LDchen.
