Outrun works.

Anyone know the limitations of this build? The readme is pretty general, System16 games seem playable, but what of Konami and Taito hardware?

The topics of emulation and piracy, including the technical nature of emulators and ROM images, hardware modification technology, as well as their effect on the industry as a political topic are deemed to be generally acceptable.

Linking to pirate download sites, directions on how to get pirated software to work, reviews or impressions of pirated software will all result in the banning of the user in question.

Space Harrier boots but it`s 3 fps hell and obviously music all to cock, which ruins the foot tapping awesomeness of the game.

Switch off the music and it`s pretty much nailed perfect.

is the PSP just Jesus in a box or what?

I'm not even installing this. Take out all the CPS and Neo-Geo games (which I don't need to run on this) and there's barely anything left worth playing. Plus it sounds like it still can't run anything well.

What Snes 9x?
Some Snes Games Won't Even Boot.... (Such As Fire Pro Wrestling X Premium.)

Thanks Everyone Who Dropped Knowledge, PsP Is Christmas Day In A Neo-Geo Cartridged Sized Object.... It Is A Shard Of Heaven In Your Hands....

Verboten was posting, and verboten is German for forbidden (Wolfenstein 3D = educational), so it was what I thought a clever joke :(

In other news, there's a new version of DOSBox for PSP out. Works flawlessly and the game compatibility is amazing. Been playing some Dune 2 lately.



P.S.: There really should be a thread dedicated to PSP homebrew news.

It's not actually trolling if you don't admit it

Holy crap. And I thought the PSP Apple II emulator was awesome...

...if I can get Star Control II to work on this, I will be very, very, very happy. :D

Do you have to type all those commands in dosbox whenever you want to play a game? Sounds like a chore on the PSP...

Can you confirm that Dune 2 works well with good sound? It uses the analog stick?

Ghouls and Ghosts works like a charm - great news indeed. :D

that's sweet because, the version of Ghouls 'n Ghosts on Capcom Classics Collection and Capcom Classic's Collection Reloaded is directly ported from PS1's Capcom Generation vol 2 which was not an emulation or carbon-copy port of the CPS arcade, even though it was arcade-quality and a very close port. the worst thing about it was, the parallax backgrounds in the distance were extremely dim. the other thing was, you couldn't listen to the fantasic ending music in the sound test, it wasn't there!

no, man. that emulator is not outstanding. it's mediocre.

look at how backwards the development has been. this is from the readme file:

snes9xTYL is based on :

Little John for PalmOS - SNES module
--> http://yoyofr92.free.fr

which is based on Snes9x 1.39
--> http://www.snes9x.com
as i said, someone needs to write an emu from the ground-up for psp, instead of reverse engineering two other platforms and porting to a 3rd.

If these dumb and shanty PSP emulation 'news' sites would stop hosting shit themselves, it would actually be feasible to use google to find these things yourself... the same way how cheat database sites ruined googling for obscure videogames.
