* Stub cellOsk

Returns the word "rpcs3" as OSK input for now. Tested and working in
Terraria, Nier, and some homebrew. The next step would be to hook it up
to the GUI so the user can enter any text.

An open-source PlayStation 3 emulator/debugger written in C++.

You can find some basic information in the FAQ. For discussion about this emulator and PS3 emulation please visit the official forums.


If you want to contribute please take a look at the Coding Style, Roadmap and Developer Information pages. You should as well contact any of the developers in the forum in order to know about the current situation of the emulator.




  • GCC 5.1+ or Clang 3.5.0+ (not GCC 6.1)
  • Debian & Ubuntu: sudo apt-get install cmake build-essential libopenal-dev libwxgtk3.0-dev libglew-dev zlib1g-dev libedit-dev libvulkan-dev
  • Arch: sudo pacman -S glew openal wxgtk cmake llvm


  • Xcode 6+ (tested with Xcode 6.4)
  • Install with Homebrew: brew install glew wxwidgets
  • Remove '-framework QuickTime' from '_ldflags' in /usr/local/bin/wx-config


To initialize the repository don't forget to execute git submodule update --init to pull the submodules.

  • Windows: 1) Open the .SLN file. 2) Build the projects in __BUILD_BEFORE folder: right-click on every project > Build. 3) Press BUILD > Build Solution or Rebuild Solution.
  • Linux & Mac OSX: If you want to build with LLVM, then LLVM 3.8 is required. cd rpcs3 && cmake CMakeLists.txt && make && cd ../ then run with cd bin && ./rpcs3. If you are on OSX and want to build with llvm don't forget to add -DLLVM_DIR=... (or wherever llvm brew was installed) to cmake invocation. When using GDB, configure it to ignore SIGSEGV signal (handle SIGSEGV nostop noprint).
CMake Build Options (Linux & Mac OSX)
    Build against the shared libpng instead of using the builtin one. libpng 1.6+ highly recommended. Try this option if you get version conflict errors or only see black game icons.

    Build against the shared ffmpeg libraries instead of using the builtin patched version. Try this if the builtin version breaks the OpenGL renderer for you.
