What's new in 0.9.6
- Large general speed improvements
- "Software Skinning" option which speeds up many games with animated 3D characters
- Various fixes around stencil/alpha, reducing glow problems in Wipeout and Gods Eater Burst
- Timing improvements making more games run at the correct FPS, also fixing some audio issues
- More debugger features
- Option for four-way touch dpad, avoiding diagonal issues
- Individually resizable touch controls
- Add ability to switch UMD in multi-disc games (works for most)
- Support for "Immersive mode" full screen on Android Kitkat on devices that support it (Nexus 4, etc).
- Emulate PSP-2000 rather than the 1000 model by default. Not much different in practice.
- Automatic install of games from ZIP files, like demos and many homebrew.
- VERY basic ad-hoc online play support, to be improved in future versions. See below.
What's new in 0.9.5
- Many, many emulation fixes:
- bezier/spline curve support, fixing LocoRoco and others
- stencil clear emulation, fixing Final Fantasy IV text
- Performance improvements in some games
- Post-processing shaders like FXAA, scanlines, vignette
- More solid save states (we will try to keep them working from now on. Save states only upgrade forward, not backward to older versions though).
- Change render resolution independently of window size
- Massive debugger improvements
- Win32 menu bar is now translatable
- Multiple UI bugs were fixed, and the UI instantly changes when a new language is selected
- Win32: Ability to store PPSSPP's config files and memory stick files in places other than the same directory
- Android-x86 support
- Unofficial port for modified Xbox 360 consoles
- Atrac3+ plugin no longer required. Symbian now supports Atrac3+ audio.
- Symbian audio and ffmpeg is now threaded for more consistent media processing.
- Haptic feedback support for mobile devices.
- Accurate system information for mobile devices.
- Qt audio has been fixed.
- Analog controller support for Blackberry.
ADHOC SUPPORT (by Igor Calabria)
This is based on coldbird's code: http://code.google.com/p/aemu/ All credit goes to him!
Code is a bit of a mess and it's not fully functional yet, I still need to implement some functions and add a upnp lib(really important for people with routers).
I did test it with some games(emulator <-> real psp with the server running locally) and it's looking good:
- Worms Open Warfare: Ran just fine, I was able to play a whole match without problems
- Monster Hunter Freedom Unite: Runs fine too. Gathering Hall and embarking on quests works
- Dissidia Duodecim 012: Doesn't work. It requires some functions that I haven't implemented yet. Also, it uses a port < 1000 and thats reserved for admin apps on linux, running the emu as sudo "solves" it, but it's far from ideal.
- Pacman World Rally: Works too.
Update (Kyhel) :
- Now compiles on both Mac OSX and Windows. For more details on how to play and build go to see there http://forums.ppsspp.org/showthread.php?tid=3595&pid=59241#pid59241
- Got it tested windows <-> mac osx <-> psp, it works
- Monster Hunter 3rd HD works too, as well as God Eater Burst.
