Step 3: Download RAR archived App

If after downloading the game you notice that it is not compatible with PPSSPP due to the kind of file it is, then you should download an app that can convert it to another file format. This means that If your file is not in the .iso or .ico format and you find it in another format like .rar, .7z, ZIP, then you should change it to the required playable format.

If that is not the case, once you install your game to the phone, it will automatically get saved in the PPSSPP folder of your phone and it means you can install it directly without converting it to another file. However, it is almost impossible to get this.

So all you have to do is to change the game file to that supported by PPSSPP so it can be installed and played using the mobile console emulator. Below are the steps required to do this:

1. Go to google play store, download Rar Archiver.
2. After download, launch the app and you will be given a list of files. Go to where your PSP game files are saved.
3. Identify the game file you wants to convert and click on it. It will display the .iso and the .ico format of the file afterwards.
4. Hold down the game file format of .ico or .cso format until you have seen a drop-down menu. On that menu click on the extract file option.
5. After that, you will have to choose where the extracted files will be saved. Just click on the PPSSPP folder and save the new file format of the game in the folder.

2. You will see a new icon on your dashboard showing which game was installed. If it is not there, it would be better to go back to that step and retry again.
