Play Your Own PS1 Games On The PlayStation Classic Via USB

Recommended Posts

I am sure you have read by now how the PlayStation Classic has been hacked and has been running games not officially designed for the system, at the start of the week it seemed the process to get your own personal PS1 games to run on the Classic would be difficult, but thanks to a script by 





A user on Reddit suggests that you add this code to line 8 of the script to back up your original game database:

cp /gaadata/databases/regional.db /media/games/original.db

You can read how to install games here at the source:




You can also bypass the 25 game limit by doing this:

(1) Copy out the sonyapp-copylink file to USB by adding this line to lolhack.sh:

cp /usr/sony/bin/sonyapp-copylink /media/games

(2) Boot up the PSC with the USB drive in it until it gets to the game selection screen, turn it off, put USB back in PC

(3) Edit the COUNT_MAX number from 25 to 50 (or whatever) in sonyapp-copylink and save it.

(4) Edit lolhack.sh script to REMOVE the line from step 1.

(5) Edit the lolhack.sh script to run that script from the USB drive at /media/games/sonyapp-copylink AFTER the killall ui_menu but BEFORE it restarts ui_menu:

kill the ui process

killall ui_menu

sleep 5s
cd /data/AppData/sony/pcsx

Call edited copy file so more than 25 games be used


restart ui

/usr/sony/bin/ui_menu --power-off-enable

(6) Put USB drive back in PSC and boot it up and now more than 25 games can be used.




And you can even add your own cheats by doing this:


  • get a copy of the latest cheatpops.db from somewhere and save it on the USB drive in the games folder.
  • Edit lolhack.sh to add the following line right under the line that copies the SQL DB:
cp /media/games/cheatpops.db /data/AppData/sony/pcsx

(this will copy the cheatpops.db to the pcsx directory and when pcsx runs it will detect it and the cheats can be turned ON/OFF in the emulator menu after starting a game)
