A young PS2 emulator with plans for an optimized Android port, as well as a fast, accurate, and easy-to-use PC port.
A large portion of the PS2's library can boot or get to menus. Some titles can even go in-game, including high-profile ones such as Final Fantasy X and Shadow of the Colossus. Not intended for general use.
DobieStation uses Qt 5 and supports qmake and CMake.
Building with qmake
cd DobieStation/DobieStation qmake DobieStation.pro make
Building with CMake
# Linux mkdir build && cd build cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo make # MacOS (using Homebrew Qt5) mkdir build && cd build cmake .. -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=RelWithDebInfo -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr/local/opt/qt5 make # Windows (MSVC) # - change 'CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH' to point to your Qt installation. # - replace 'Visual Studio 16 2017' with your desired VS version (eg: "Visual Studio 16 2019") mkdir build && cd build cmake -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH="C:/Qt/5.13.1/msvc2017_64" \ -G "Visual Studio 15 2017" -A x64 .. start DobieStation.sln
Note for Ubuntu Xenial
While 16.04 is still officially supported they don't provide a recent enough version of Qt. As such if you wish to build Dobie on Xenial you will need to update Qt through a PPA
add-apt-repository ppa:beineri/opt-qt-5.11.1-xenial apt-get update apt-get install qt511-meta-minimal qt511multimedia libglu1-mesa-dev source /opt/qt511/bin/qt511-env.sh
Alternatively, you may upgrade to the most recent Ubuntu LTS, 18.04.
Building with Visual Studio
DobieStation is known to compile on 2017 and 2019.
Before opening Visual Studio, you must set the
QTDIR environment variable to your 64 bit QT install.
For example on Visual Studio 2017:
Once the variable is set open
DobieStation\DobieStation.sln in Visual Studio.
Using the Emulator
DobieStation requires a copy of the PS2 BIOS, which must be dumped from your PS2.
The various command line options are as follows:
-b [BIOS file] - Takes the form of /path/to/bios.bin. Required for booting DobieStation. -f [file] (optional) - The ELF or ISO that DobieStation loads. Takes the form of /path/to/game.iso or /path/to/homebrew.elf. -s (optional) - Skip the BIOS boot animation when starting DobieStation with an ISO/ELF loaded.
The key bindings are as follows:
|I||Left Analog up|
|K||Left Analog down|
|J||Left Analog left|
|L||Left Analog right|
|F1||Dump current frame from GS|
|F8||Take a screenshot|
|.||Advance a single frame|
