User's Guide


This package includes the Emulator and the GUI for Steam, NOT the game; you will need to have an ISO copy of the game to be able to play. The installation is simple, unpack it wherever you want, for example, for our convenience, I suggest unpacking it in the Steam game library:

Now put your ISO file into the "game" folder and you are done. The game is launched via the emulator! To do this, open "PPSSPPWindows64" if you have a 64bit PC or "PPSSPPWindows" if you have a 32 bit one.


Before starting the game for the first time, it is highly recommended to install the following libraries in order to avoid crashes and other problems.

GUI for Steam:

Now let's create a beautiful label with cover, background and icon on Steam:
• Steam>Add a Non-Steam Game...>Specify the path to our "PPSSPPWindows64" or "PPSSPPWindows" depending on the bit depth of your system, rename shortcut and add it to the library.
• Open the "steam_gui" folder and apply your cover, background, logo and the icon. It should turn out something like in the screenshots:

Now you can run the game directly from Steam!



Faced with a certain problem, or just want to know as much information as possible before starting the game? Answers to frequently asked questions are published below:

2. If you are experiencing performance issues, you can lower the values of the following parameters in the emulator settings:

3. The controls are adapted to modern gamepads, but if you want to change them, or add a keyboard, you can do it in the emulator settings.
