Want additional hardware support in PSXGameEdit?

Below is a list of the hardware which is directly supported in PSXGameEdit and which is not yet supported (left column). Direct support means that you can use PSXGameEdit to do the reading and writing of memory cards, so you don't have to use the official software to write a game save to your memory card after you've edited or converted it with PSXGameEdit. There are three categories in the list. The first (currently supported) is the hardware which is already supported, the second (working on support) is the hardware which I have and I am working on implementing direct hardware support for. The third is the hardware which I don't have, which makes it impossible for me to do direct support for. So, if you want support for some hardware which is in the third category or which is not listed here, you are very welcome to send it to me and I'll do support for it (if possible). As always the contributors (right column) will be named and acknowledged for their help in making PSXGE better! Contact me on psxge@mail.dk

Currently supported:

DexDrive (serial version) Al Amaloo
Action Replay carts. (Caetla or E.M.S./Clone roms) Bernard Ferguson

And the cool new HexEditor:

Supported formats:

Required hardware:

To utilize the PSXGameEdit program fully, you must have some hardware to do the actual communication with the memory cards. Currently the program supports the following hardware:

Please note that PSXGameEdit can read and write memory cards directly using the DexDrive, Caetla/EMS/Action Replay flashed cartridges & PlaySaver, but for other hardware, PSXGameEdit depends on the hardware to do the read/write operations between the PC and memory card.

If you don't have any of the above, I highly recommend building the PlaySaver which is very cool! The version that I have built looks like this, for building questions and schematics, please see the official PlaySaver site:
