Spine PS4 emulator for Linux

Spine PS4 emulator for Linux – PC Desktop

Uploaded byBlowFlies


Spine emulator is repository contains sources of a Flatpak package for spinedemo.

Spinedemo is a demo version of spine which is a Wine-like PS4 emulator for Linux that is being developed in private (see also Windows, MacOS, iOS and Android version).

The experimental version is now aviable on the link button below.


Dump the game on your PS4 and copy the resulting files to your PC.

To run flatpak version:

flatpak run –filesystem={dump directory}:ro org.devofspine.SpineDemo {path to eboot.bin}

To run binary version:

spinedemo {path to eboot.bin}


Default version is packaged using Flatpak (https://flatpak.org).

flatpak –user install flatpak/spinedemo.flatpak

Alternative version was built on Fedora 29 and statically linked. It requires
only OpenGL and SDL2. It is provided in the static directory.

This was done because version built with flatpak runtime doesn’t seem to work
with Nvidia drivers.

Supported games (md5 of executable, other dumps may also work):

  • Mega Man Legacy Collection
    • 6911087c37fde29034c1d9ef2950684a eboot.bin (ELF)
    • 38c82774d44373cf24f84401eec97623 eboot.bin (SELF)
  • We Are Doomed
    • 01fc7a91797a2debda8d0f14b4b0fa55 eboot.bin (ELF)
    • 6cf309f131434bcff7d8737664b45c8e eboot.bin (SELF)

Releases are currently tested on:

  • desktop computer with Nvidia GTX970, Fedora 29
    binary version works, flatpak doesn’t
  • laptop running Fedora 29 under VMware Fusion
    both versions work
