How to Play NES Games on Your PS2 with a USB Flash Drive




If you are a fan of retro gaming and have a PlayStation 2 console, you might be interested in playing some classic Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games on it. Fortunately, there is a way to do that without any hardware modifications or soldering. All you need is a USB flash drive, some NES roms, and a modded PS2 or a PS2 with a swap magic disc. ULaunchELF is a file manager and launcher for the PS2 that can run various homebrew applications from different media sources. FCEUltra is an NES emulator that can play most NES games with good compatibility and speed.

In this article, we will show you how to set up ULaunchELF and FCEUltra on your USB flash drive and how to play NES games on your PS2 with ease.


What You Need





  • A PlayStation 2 console (any model)



  • A USB flash drive (at least 256 MB)



  • A modded PS2 or a PS2 with a swap magic disc



  • ULaunchELF ([download here])



  • FCEUltra ([download here])



  • NES roms (you can find them online using your favorite search engine)




Step 1: Copy the Files to Your USB Flash Drive




Extract the FCEUltra zip file and copy the packed_fceu.ELF file to the root of your USB flash drive. This is the main executable file of the emulator. Then, create a folder named "ROMS" on your USB flash drive and copy your NES roms into it. Make sure the rom files have the .nes extension.


Extract the ULaunchELF zip file and copy the BOOT folder and the SYSTEM.CNF file to the root of your USB flash drive. These files are needed to run ULaunchELF from your USB flash drive.


Your USB flash drive should look something like this:


USB:/ BOOT/ BOOT.ELF ... ROMS/ Ice Climber.nes Super Mario Bros.nes ... SYSTEM.CNF packed_fceu.ELF


Step 2: Run ULaunchELF on Your PS2




Boot up your PS2 and run ULaunchELF using your preferred method. If you have a modded PS2, you can use any method that allows you to run homebrew applications from your USB flash drive. If you have a PS2 with a swap magic disc, you can use the following steps:



  • Insert the swap magic disc into your PS2 and turn it on.



  • Wait for the swap magic menu to appear and press X to select "Normal Boot".



  • Eject the swap magic disc and insert any original PS1 game disc.



  • Press X again to start loading the game.



  • When you see the PlayStation logo, quickly eject the PS1 game disc and insert the USB flash drive into any USB port of your PS2.



  • Wait for ULaunchELF to load from your USB flash drive.




You should see a screen like this:



Step 3: Play NES Games on Your PS2




Once ULaunchELF is running, you can use it to browse your USB flash drive and launch FCEUltra. To do that, follow these steps:

  • Select "mass:/" and press O to open it. This is where your USB flash drive is mounted.



  • Select "packed_fceu.ELF" and press O to run it.



  • You should see the FCEUltra menu with a list of your NES roms.



  • Select the NES game you want to play and press X to start it.
