Following functions are included:

Add header: adds an empty header
Remove header: removes an existing header
Edit ROM information like title, country/region and version
Fix checksum: fixes a broken checksum. You always should do this before saving, if possible. Please note that some beta or demo ROMs have an odd checksum anyway …
Fix ROM size: fixes wrong internal ROM size information (useful for some ROM hacks)
Expand ROM: expands ROM to a specific size up to 64 Mbit (BS-X up to 32 Mbit). Mirror option should only be used, when there are problems with standard expanding. Always check if your ROM still works after doing this!

Kyty v0.2.0 released!

  • 121
  • 0
Kyty PS4/PS5 Emulator
Unlike Spine, this one works on Windows and is specifically designed for Windows 10 64-bit. But, as I have already said, it is in the very early stage of development, as mentioned in the GitHub page. Infact, the very first version of the emulator was only released 2 days ago.

As for the games that work, the developer himself says that for now, only a few simple PS4 games will work. Coming to the PS5 emulation part, he says graphics hasn’t been implemented properly. So, PS5 emulation with Kyty has a long journey ahead.

Changelog:

It is possible to run some simple games for PS4 and homebrews for PS5
There maybe graphics glitches, crashes, freezes and low FPS. It's OK for now.
