Under the patches section, download PPF-O-MATIC.
Verified to be working on Windows 10 as of 05/15/2019.

----Mac users----
You will need to download to patch an ISO located here:
This is a utility verified to be working on macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) as of 05/15/2019.

----Java PPF ----
On and as of 01/09/2019, I haven't been able to get the Java
version of PPF-o-matic to work properly; it keeps giving me errors regardless of how I generate
the PPF or what ISO I use. Tested and failed to patch on Windows and Linux. Don't use it.
Getting java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException.

Download the PPF file located below.

You must have an original FFT (vanilla) ISO. (ALWAYS keep a backup of the original!)
An original ISO cannot be provided due to copyright issues.
Formats verified to work: .img and .bin
Others should still work though as the data is the same.

* WARNING: THIS WILL PATCH THE ISO IN PLACE! Make a backup of the original ISO before you patch it!

Using PPF-O-MATIC/PPFApplier, apply the STSC.ppf to the original ISO to update the ISO in place.
Run the newly patched ISO with your favorite PS1 emulator!
