This remake features the original version of the game released for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, accessible from the title screen. This version of the remake does not include a French version of that. The Japanese ROM has been replaced with the English ROM.
The next version will feature the French version of the original game. For news about the release of version 2, please like our Facebook page!
We recommend using PCSX2 for emulation. This Playstation 2 emulator is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
PlayStation 3 version
To use the PS3 version, you need to have a CFW (Custom Firmware) installed on your PS3 in order to be able to install packages (.pkg). You will also need "ReactPSN" to activate the game license.
How to install the game:
- Install the "JP0000-SLPM62553_00-PS2CLASSICS00000.pkg" file on your PS3 with a package installation software.
- Copy the "exdata" directory to the root of a USB storage device (an USB key for example), then connect it to the right USB port (front ports).
- Activate the game with "ReactPSN".
Note: If you never used "ReactPSN", it's pretty easy to use. Briefly, download the last version and install the package (.pkg file) on your PS3. Create an user named "aa" on your PS3 and connect to this "aa" session. Hold the "L1" button on your controller and launch "ReactPSN" with the "X" button (keep holding the "L1" button until the PS3 is rebooted). The "aa" user should now be renamed "ReactPSN" and your game should now be activated. You can now use the game with any user profile available on your PS3 (like any PSN game).
