PPSSPP - a fast and portable PSP emulator

Created by Henrik Rydgård

Additional code by many contributors, see the Credits screen

Originally released under the GPL 2.0 (and later) in November 2012

Official website:

No BIOS file required to play, PPSSPP is in many ways a "HLE" emulator.

To contribute, see the development page.

For the latest source code, see our github page.

For build instructions and other development tutorials, see the wiki.

What's new in 1.0.1

  • Bugfixes like the save state scroll issue, cosmetic issues like overscroll
  • Some cheat code bugfixes
  • Adler32 and Mersenne Twister modules added (fixes some obscure games)
  • Fix for Jak & Daxter slowdown
  • Graphics hack for Phantasy Star Portable 2 for Direct3D9
  • Fix compatibility with some PowerVR devices broken since v0.9.5-959-g4998044

What's new in 1.0

  • Many, many bug fixes in JIT and elsewhere, improving compatibility
  • Proper fix for Zenfone and related devices
  • Direct3D 9 supported as a rendering backend on Windows, helps on old GPUs and can be faster than OpenGL in many cases
  • You can now create specific configs per game
  • FPU rounding modes much better supported, fixes the Peace Walker boss that was undefeatable. NOTE: This breaks saves in Gods Eater - you must turn off the better rounding, load your save game, turn it on and save.
  • The JIT now uses SSE on x86, improving speed considerably. This does not affect ARM devices, that's for the next version or two.
  • Improved audio output code on both Windows and Android, reducing audio latency on Windows and on some Android systems
  • FFMPEG upgraded, fixed some music hangs ("GHA phase shifts")
  • Some Ad Hoc improvements, is now default adhoc server. Ad Hoc still unfinished and hard to use.
  • Graphics fixes: Bezier/spline drawing fixes, vertex position fixes, DanganRonpa on Adreno fixed, flat shading fixed, vertex cache improved, some PowerVR blockiness issues fixed, screen scaling filter added, Google Cardboard support
  • Simulate UMD speed better, fixing hangs in several games
  • More Atrac3 fixes, fixing hangs
  • Somewhat better disk full handling
  • Fixes to dynamic unloading of code, fixing problems in GEB and TRM 2/3
  • Updated to SDL2 where applicable (Linux, Mac)
  • Some new features, like analog/dpad-swap hotkey, graphics hack for Phantasy Star, show last bit of debug log in dev tools, etc

What's new in

A few issues have been discovered in the release that need fixing, the Star Ocean fix had a bug and there are some unexpected slowdowns.

Improved sceMpegRingbufferAvailableSize - UFC© Undisputed​™ 2010 now playable

Improved ISO File System - Bleach Soul Carnival 2 now in-game (but freeze when in menu)

What's new in 0.9.9

  • CLUT (paletted) texturing from framebuffers supported, fixing many graphical issues like the shadows in Final Fantasy: Type-0
  • More types of framebuffer copies are now handled correctly, fixing a variety of graphical issues, like the sun in Burnout and many more
  • Better savedata compatibility with the real PSP
  • Support for more codecs used by "Custom BGM" and sometimes regular music in games: MP3, AAC
  • PMP video format support
  • Implemented some strange blending modes like ABSDIFF as shaders, fixing the outlines in DBZ Tag Team and more.
  • Emulation of the vrot CPU instruction improved - it caused cracks in FF3 graphics before
  • Many bugfixes around the UI, touch D-pad now works better when scaled large
  • Workaround implemented to support Star Ocean's stencil trickery as efficiently as possible on all platforms
  • Major corrections to module loading and memory management, fixing further games
  • Bulgarian and Thai language translations were contributed
  • Many, many more game fixes and bug fixes

What's new in 0.9.8

  • OpenGL ES 3 detection bug on Xperia devices fixed, graphics work again.
  • More accurate audio mixing and emulation
  • Software rendering and display list performance improvements
  • Workaround for timing issue hanging Crash Tag Team Racing
  • Galician language
  • Built-in ARM disassembler improvements (dev feature)
  • Fix for immersive mode volume key issue on Android Kitkat
  • And more minor tweaks and fixes as always.

What's new in

  • Some critical bugfixes (rotation, haptic feedback on Android, etc)

What's new in 0.9.7

  • Several scheduling and audio fixes, fixing black screens in Yu Gi Oh games among other things.
  • Screen rotation and immersive mode support on Android
  • Large improvements to the software renderer (still not really playable, but looks right more often than not)
  • New VPL allocator and bugfixes, fixing Pangya Golf performance problems.
  • Some mpeg/video playback fixes, fixing Parappa The Rapper and others. Some issues remain.
  • Fix save state bugs causing incompatibility between 32 and 64-bit platforms.
  • Symbol map/debugger improvements
  • Depth buffer copy, fixing Jeanne D'arc. May cause minor slowdowns though, this will be worked around in the future.
  • MsgDialog fixes. Saving fixed in numerous games.
  • Initial multitouch support on Windows 8 for on-screen controls.

What's new in 0.9.6

  • Large general speed improvements and assorted bug fixes
  • "Software Skinning" option which speeds up many games with animated 3D characters (but may slow down a few, like Monster Hunter games - experiment with turning it off)
  • 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 dpad issues
  • Better looking and individually resizable touch controls
  • Add ability to switch UMD in multi-disc games (works for most)

  • 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: 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) :

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
