Installation Instructions

  1. Download the AppImage file.
  2. Grant it executable permissions: chmod +x AetherSX2-*.AppImage
  3. Launch the AppImage: ./AetherSX2-*.AppImage
  4. Either add your BIOS files to '[home directory]/.config/aethersx2/bios', or change the BIOS path in settings.
  5. Add a directory from the settings menu to scan for games. Don't select your home directory or the root of any external volumes, it'll take forever. Pick the directory with your game dumps.

Known Issues

  • UPDATE NOTE: Version v1.0-2455 and beyond switched from storing data in $HOME/aethersx2 to $HOME/.config/aethersx2. You will need to move your data files accordingly (e.g. mv $HOME/aethersx2 $HOME/.config).
  • If you're using a Raspberry Pi 4, you must select the Vulkan renderer. Our OpenGL renderer requires GLES 3.2, which the Pi4 does not support.
