Please login or register to see this link.

Please login or register to see this link.




Installing RPCS3: Download the emulator from the link above, open the rar file with winrar and move all of the content to a desired installation folder example "C:\Emulators\RPCS3" run rpcs3.exe so it can create some user config files

Installing PS3 Firmware: Download the firmware file from the link above, it should be a ".pup" file, open RPCS3 go to File/Install Firmware and go to the location where you downloaded the .pup firmware file, choose it and RPCS3 should now start installing it, after it is done you can delete the pup file if you want

Installing PKG Games: Open RPCS3 go to File/Install .pkg go to the game's pkg file, choose it and RPCS3 should start installing it, after it is done you can delete the pkg file if you want





PPU Decoder :

  • Interpreter (Fast)


  • Recompiler (LLVM) (takes from 1 to 5 minutes to recompile each game when you load it for the first time, but is faster and more precise! So this setting is recommended, it's better to wait five minutes and have a faster game! This only recompiles ONCE PER GAME!)

SPU Decoder: Recompiler (ASMJIT)

Additional Settings: Bind SPU Threads to secondary cores (Tick this if you have an i3 Processor, otherwise leave it unticked), Lower SPU Thread Priority (Tick this if you have an i3 or i5 Processor, otherwise leave it unticked)

Firmware Settings: Automatically Load Required Libraries



Renderer: Vulkan

Graphics Device: Choose your most powerful GPU if you have multiple

Aspect Ratio: 16:9

Framelimit: Auto (don't set to 60 or 30, this might speed up or slow down games that have a fps limiter already set in place)

Additional Settings:

  • Tick Write/Read Depth Buffers if you plan on playing Demon's Souls (If a AAA game is having graphical issues tick this and see if it is fixed)
  • Tick Invalidate Cache Every Frame (This improves shadows on a few games, if you have a slow PC untick it and tick only if you have graphical issues related to shadow)
  • Tick Use GPU Texture Scaling (At the moment it only works with OPENGL and we're using VULKAN in this Config, but might as well tick it already for when this gets updated for VULKAN, if you're getting graphical issues related to textures, untick this)
  • Use Vertical Sync (This is optional, turning it off might give you a FPS boost, but you might have screen tearing)
  • Stretch to Display Area (This is optional, this overrides the aspect ratio and stretches the image to the window size so it's not recommended)

Resolution: 1920x1080 OR 1280x720 (Other resolutions might not be supported by most games so choose between these two depending on your PCs power CPU/GPU)

Debugging Settings: Leave these unticked they're only useful for developers



Audio Out: If you're on Windows use XAudio2, if you're on Linux use ALSA (OpenAL is faster but has worse quality)

Audio Settings:

  • Dump to File: Leave this unticked (This will place all the game's audio files in a folder in a raw wave file)
  • Convert to 16-bit (Tick this if you're having audio issues and see if the issue is fixed)
  • Downmix to Stereo (If you're on Windows tick this if you're only hearing part of the audio, like only voices but no music. If you're on Linux Tick this as it is required with ALSA UNLESS you're using surround speakers)



Controller Handler:

  • If you have a Ps4 controller choose Dualshock 4
  • If you have an Xbox360 or Xbox One controller choose Xinput
  • If you have a Generic USB or PS3 Controller choose MMJoystick

Keyboard Handler: Basic

Mouse Handler: Basic

Camera Input: Leave this unticked as this does nothing yet, but for future reference, this is optional, choose what you want

Camera Settings: Leave it unticked as this does nothing yet



Console Language: Choose whatever you want, but in certain games you need to change the console language to the game's language for them to boot

Console Region: If and when available set to Auto

Homebrew: Leave this unticked unless you plan on running homebrew stuff



Network Status: Leave as Disconected (This only fakes a network status it doesn't actually do anything but that, RPCS3 DOES NOT SUPPORT NETWORK CONNECTIONS YET)



Emulator Settings:

  • Exit RPCS3 when process finishes (Optional, this closes the program if a game is closed or crashes)
  • Automatically start games after boot (Tick this, otherwise when you boot a game the game window won't open)
  • Start games in Fullscreen mode (Optional, pretty self explanatory)
  • Show framerate counter in window title (Optional, tick this if you want to see your framerate (fps) in the window title (in the top bar of the window))

UI Configurations: Choose Current Settings

UI Settings: You might want to save current settings if you made changes to the UI

      What is NoPayStation and everything about it is already explained at main NPS thread Please login or register to see this link. . This tutorial will cover:
      -Bringing back downloading from PlayStation store AND/OR Activating your 3.60 VITA,
      -Creating zRIF (converting nonpdrm/nopsmdrm licenses to NoPayStation format),
      -Obtaining PKG links from your PlayStation account.
      Bringing back downloading from PlayStation Store and/or Activating your console on 3.60:
      1. Download both ReNpDRM plugins: Please login or register to see this link. Please login or register to see this link. Please login or register to see this link.      Please login or register to see this link. Please login or register to see this link. Please login or register to see this link.   
      2. Transfer both plugins to your vita ( ur0:/tai or ux0:/tai, depending where you store your plugins and config.txt )
      3. Edit config.txt in tai directory, add renpdrm.skprx under *KERNEL and restore.suprx under *ALL. Like this:
      Please login or register to see this code. 4. Now reboot your console (in order to load new config.txt and plugins)
      a) Open Settings app -> PlayStation Network -> System Activation -> Game . You should see "Activating complete".
      b) Open renpdrm log. It should say if act.dat was created and everything spoofed. This log file can be found at:  ur0:data/renpdrm_log.txt
      6. Now you should be able to download from PSS again. 
      IMPORTANT NOTE: NoNpDRM MIGHT cause some issues with ReNpDRM. If that happens, each time you want to download something from PSS, you need to disable NoNpDRM and reboot your console first.
      You can disable NoNpDRM plugin by adding # in front of its line in config.txt like this: #ux0:tai/nonpdrm.skprx
      Remember to re-enable the NoNpDRM plugin after you're done downloading your stuff! 
      Creating zRIF keys:
      IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to generate proper zRIF you need to use NoNpDRM/NoPSMdrm generated licenses ! ORIGINAL WORK.BIN / *.RIF FILES WONT WORK!
      Easy method / for single files:
      Go to this website: Please login or register to see this link.                        
      Simply upload work.bin or 6488b73b912a753a492e2714e9b38bc7.rif and press convert. 
      Harder method / for batch zRIF making:                               
      1. Download make_key from here: Please login or register to see this link.
      2. Go to the directory where your nonpdrm/nopsmdrm licenses (or nonpdrm games with work.bin files) are located.
      3. Transfer make_key.exe there. Now hold shift and press right mouse button while being inside the directory, select "Open command prompt here"
      4. Now you have two options:
      - if you want to generate key for only one file type - `make_key file.rif/.bin > keys.txt` - for example `make_key work.bin > keys.txt` or `make_key somefile . rif > keys.txt`
      - if you want to generate zRIF keys for all found . rif files in directory and its subdirectories paste this command there:
      for /f "tokens=*" %B in ('dir /S /B *.rif') do make_key "%B" >> keys.txt
      - same goes for all work.bin files found in directory and subdirectories:
      for /f "tokens=*" %B in ('dir /S /B work.bin') do make_key "%B" >> keys.txt
      5. Open key.txt file. It'll contain zRIF key/keys and their productID and file location.

      Obtaining PKG links:
      For this step you don't need a 3.60 vita, all actions are done on PC. All you need to have is purchased/added to account games.
      1. Download and install PSDLE browser extension. It can be found here: Please login or register to see this link.
      2. Go to the Playstation Store page (  Please login or register to see this link.  ) and log in (if you are not yet logged)
      3. With PSDLE installed you'll get the Icon on the bottom left corner. Click it.
      Please login or register to see this spoiler. 8. Press IMPORT on the bottom of the window that just popped up and paste this: 
      Please login or register to see this code. 9. Press OK and then CSV button to export the file to your PC. 
      10. Open saved file with notepad or excel. Now search for gameid of the game you want to share, make sure its proper link by either triggering download (just to check filesize) or by looking at the name/productid.

      Disclaimer: neither PKG link or zRIF contain any of your personal information. PKG links ARE THE SAME FOR EVERYBODY, and zRIF is nothing else than work.bin in text, easy to share form.

      For existing PKG links and zRIFs please check NoPayStation Database itself (linked below). Also do consider adding your own contributions to the "Public" page.  I'll be merged with locked, organized page later. First page, README 2.0 contains information how to use NoPayStation.
