  11. dominix says:

    do I need a high end pc to play it on my vita?

  12. Chocogow says:

    Does this work with 1.67

    • ZereoX says:

      No it will not work. You need the most up to date firmware to be able to download the 0.99 software update for PlayStation Mobile Dev Assistant. Unless you don’t have a VBHL-ready game then you should go for it.

    • cscash241 says:

      I am trying this now on 1.67, i redownloaded the ps suite dev assistant and its still verison 0.98.0 s o that may be an issue

  13. GMack523 says:

    Could someone please point some of us to instructions on how to utilize PSM Studio to get this onto our Vitas?

    • GMack523 says:

      Please see instructions from Lion_Amongst_Men that I have copied below:


      1.start up Playstation Mobile Studio (the update is on the site if your running a older model and only the vita is connected it will not communicate to the vita)

      2.turn on the psm app on the vita and let it stay there

      3. on the pc you want to be on the psm press ctrl+o <–(this is not a zer0)
      select the file that is .SLN in the vita remote client folder let this load on to your psm on pc

      4. select run on the psm taskbar menu(this will either say on or off after ps vita u will want to dissconnect and reconnect if it says off to get it transffered )

      5. if you did this right when you run on the vita it should say installing

      viola your finished with installing the app

  14. mcgee says:

    Actually if u have 3.55 cfw and the new mmos, u can use the direct boot function in the game settings menu []. It will allow u to boot from multiman instead of booting back to the xmb. I have recent been playing batman AA in 3d. Analog sticks are a bit touchy though but overall still awesome.

  15. mirko8054 says:

    guys i have error, while i copy the clinet in ps vita, he find and error about texture:
    Error CS1061: ‘Sce.PlayStation.Core.Graphics.Texture2D’ does not contain a definition for ‘ShallowCopy’ and no extension method ‘ShallowCopy’ accepting a first argument of type ‘Sce.PlayStation.Core.Graphics.Texture2D’ could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) (CS1061) (SampleLib)
    LINE 183, help me pls

  16. GaDo says:

    So hard for me i dont know to to use those prog can someone post a step by step thanks!

  17. James Way says:

    There’s no VitaRemoteServer.exe, only a vitaremoteserver.vshost.exe that when I double click nothing happens. I got the app onto my vita, I already remote desktop using RDP that came with my professional suite of win7. I have used the built in remote desktop connection, while on my own network and also while I’m far away at work. I have also used live mesh with success. Do I still need to install the server? Also what port does the vita look for when running the remote desktop? I changed my listening port from 3389 to another, for security reasons, in the registry. When I run the app on the vita I get the ip address and port to enter. While on my network I enter my pcs network IP .100 and the port already there is 8080 which is the normal port for remote router control. I know for RDC I use to connect. When I enter all that for the ip and leave the 8080, it just closes the app, when I only enter the ip and the xxxx for port, it goes to a black screen shows 60fps and nothing else. My pc does not get controlled.

  18. docbattle says:

    i got it to work its just slow and i wanna change controls

  19. My only question @Wololo will i have to update the PSM SDK?

  20. Utterly Utter says:

    Hey, is it using the same gate on all computers since the screen turns plain black when I press connect, I have 0.99 and the right IP adress. (Yes I’m a complete newb when it comes to this sort of stuff.)

  21. UGH…. installing now and going to try and update my psv if this stops all other apps currently installed on the psm ver.0.98.0 it will kill me…

  22. hmmmm… RIP current apps :/

  23. Okay i have just made a confirmation and it is working on windowsXP you will have to wait a few minutes for the connection to complete. :) you will have to update your pss to psm and thats what i did to make it work.

  24. Cerealkiller says:

    Do I install the VitaRemoteClient.psspac?

    • vita remote client .sln u would just install this to the vita as normal and it should say installing on the vita screen

      • GMack523 says:

        How do we install this? Please help.

        • STEP BY STEP

          1.start up Playstation Mobile Studio (the update is on the site if your running a older model and only the vita is connected it will not communicate to the vita)

          2.turn on the psm app on the vita and let it stay there

          3. on the pc you want to be on the psm press ctrl+o <–(this is not a zer0)

          viola your finished with installing the app

  25. Cerealkiller says:

    My screen is blank on my vita.

    • If your screen is blank make sure you have the correct IP address of the vita and when you have it you will have to wait 5 minutes or less and it should appear as your desktop depending on your settings on your screen you will have to adjust some setting so you can see the full screen or you are going to have to shrink your game… but either way you can use to fingers to move the screen (you must adjust for games tho because you will not be able to function the game properly)

    • GMack523 says:

      Please make sure that the server component is running on the PC whose IP you have entered into the Vita.

    • maxmeecehgan says:

      Turn off your Firewall

  26. Currently I am having trouble with getting – (Vita connector to connect my PSV so i can transfer .psspac files) anyone know what i can do to resolve this problem?

  27. Okay so i can safely confirm that the ps vita connector that allowed the leaf progam aka. nes emulator and other apps such with the .psspac file format will not allow a connection to the ps vita anymore the vita connector will have to be updated.

    if anyone has a confirmation on getting this to work please let me know thank you :)

  28. Okay i just randomly stumbled upon this but
    as you know with the new update from the SDK
    you can no longer use the Vita Connector!

    Well when you run the vita connector on the pc just like you would if you were going to connect and put a .psspac file into the Vita

    it will not refresh the device and it will not have your device in the selection box… but if you press the power button on your ps vita while still running the Vita connector your device will show up when refreshed in the list?

    we just need to find the exploit for this if the vita connector is not updated to accustom the new update haha

  29. GMack523 says:

    Does anyone know how I can make this work with Steam? When I launch a game it stays on the Steam application and doesn’t show the game that I have started.

  30. well i started to run minecraft and i had to resize the whole game screen to be small enough so i can capture the whole thing when it transferred and no sound cannot be sent to vita as of yet

    • GMack523 says:

      I’m trying to play Braid and I had hoped that one of the Vita buttons would already have been mapped to the spacebar . . . no such luck. Does this mean that I need to go into the PSM everytime I play a new game? Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate this new development, I’m just trying to figure out how to do things.

  31. emnunl says:

    done but is really laaaaagin!

    • this app is a remarkable breakthrough for remote play but unfortunately here’s a equation you aren’t going to like

      computer + ability to run games like steam flawlessly = a great psv remote pc experience

      computer + no ability to run games w/o it being incredibly slow = horrible remote play pc experience

      so you will need a gaming pc or pc that’s capable of handling games to run this app at its full potential…

  32. GMack523 says:

    For an application that is “only” 30% complete, this is amazing! Great job digitalarts001!

    • I agree with @GMack523 this is amazing for a 30% app completion thank you for sharing @DigitalArts01!

      • Nyaa says:

        i ported vncsharp project to psvita, work nicely with UltraVNC (ultravnc support scaling on serverside = low bandwidth = faster response) :)

        *playing online game with hackshield removed as we speak*

  33. lll says:

    horrible slow, compare to the video…it’s incredible
    the fps is very low as 10 or below…..

  34. maxmeecehgan says:

    It’s not working for me!! It’s blank!! I followed the I.P in the ballon. Tried using my pc’s ip 192.168.******. What’s wrong?

  35. Aye Guy says:

    Got it working. All I had to do was change one line in the code. 😀

  36. maxmeecehgan says:

    Can Someone answer me?
    I got the IP part right but it’s still black!! I’ve waited 20 minutes but it’s still blank!! What do I have to do!! Is the problem in my laptop settings?!? Can Port forwarding help me?! If it can, how?!

  37. natsu says:

    it says vita is disconnected whenever i open the app on the vita

  38. maxmeecehgan says:

    Finally!! It worked!!! Try turning off your firewall!!
    Some bugs for me, I tried Crysis!! The Mouse doesn’t work?!?! And how can I change the buttons?

  39. Antichrist84 says:


    Your antivirus/firewall may be blocking the server.

    Disable them and try again 😀

  40. Mr. Awsome says:

    Okay, so i finally found it all out.

    Full tutorial:

    -Install the vita dev update and the pc software from sony’s site. (Latest PLEASE!)

    -Download the rar and extract it anywhere.

    -Run psm and go to File-open. Navigate it to where you extracted the rar.

    -Once it opens, go to Build-Rebuild All. Once it says “Rebuild successful”, Open the PSM Dev app on the vita and connect the vita to the pc.

    -Go to Run-Run on-PS Vita (xxxxxxx) ON.

    -It will install the program to the vita automatically, wait. Once the client itself opens, close out of the app and close PSM on pc.

    -Now open to the extracted folder, and go to VitaRemoteServer and open VitaRemoteServer.exe

    Now you have it working, we need to get the ip of your pc. websites or the pop up bubble in the corner do not work on all pc’s, so this is the best way to go.

    -Go to start-search cmd, open the command line. Once it opens, type in ipconfig.

    -Once it pops up on the window, go to “Wireless LAN adapter …” and look where it says “IPv4 Address”. Thats your correct ip.

    -Now type that into the app (You have to do it everytime sadly) ip address, leave the port same, and if you did all that right, it should work!

    Your welcome.

  41. Lindy says:

    I can’t figure out how to send this app to my vita. I did rebuild all but when I go to run, it says my vita is off. probably because I don’t have the app on my vita yet as I can’t figure out how to do that part.

  42. Lindy says:

    Nevermind.. I didn’t notice a second download on the link provided above for the psm. I should be ok now. I had only downloaded the pc version.

  43. Jd8531 says:

    ps suite STAYS on your computer. 0.99 installs as a new program call PSM. Dont confuse them and you wont have problems.

  44. Rufus says:

    I’m sure having a good computer helps with this, but I’m almost certain that your router makes an insanely huge difference. I can play it in the same room as my router and get almost 1:1, the further away i get the framerate drops. I was fiddling with it outside my house and I could only achieve around 5fps. I am running on an old linksys G router. I wonder how much better my performance would be with a nice N router.

  45. ill try it with my comcast router brb… okay so it all depends on your router i went into my back yard and all around my house the furthest i got was 10km before i started to lagg to the point of 1-5 fps

  46. EpicRedPanda says:

    Works for me! 😀 I get about 40-60 fps with very little lag. Love this remote desktop app!

    • Mr. Awsome says:

      HOW!? I only get 15 fps, and my cpu can run anything well up to a heavy game of minecraft, and I have a great connection as well, so i dont get it.

      • EpicRedPanda says:

        Minecraft isn’t a really heavy game….
        My internet connection is very strong and my cpu is a 3rd gen i7 quadcore :)

  47. MACRO says:

    some suggestions about config?? cuz quiality SUX

  48. natsu says:

    I CANNOT transfer the app to my vita, but i can transfer it to my android… :(

    they say the update doesnt work with the vita connector?

  49. Ins4niaC says:

    my screen on my ps vita i blank and i have followed all steps but it isn´t working anyway! :(

  50. GaDo says:

    i cant see the FullScreen in my Vita my current Resu in my PC is 1600×900! and the avail resu in Remotedeskstop is 800×600

    • distefano says:

      you need to set your desktop to 800×600 too , then you see your fullscreen too .
      i got tony hawk pro skater to work that way , works great , however most other newer games dont .
      now trying to get mw2 and saints row to work .

  51. Hereiam says:

    I seem to be the only one in the world but… Why wont my mouse work in games like fable 3, bioshock 2, and any other for that matter?

    • Brett says:

      Look i realize it is something i must change in sdk thats fine i can handle that. just can someone point me in the right direction within the code?

      Otherwise this app is useless unless for old boring emulators.

  52. Prymed says:

    Works great for me! I regretted having to update to 1.69, but I decided to anyway. Hopefully your next VHBL will work on 1.69, @wololo. xD But the only real complaints I have is that when you run games on fullscreen It won’t show up on the vita, and some games (Portal 2, Skyrim) the right analog stick won’t move the axis of the game, but move the mouse. But all-in-all, grats to DigitalArts001 for his great effort on such a wonderful app. :p

  53. ghadz says:

    Great app plugged my pc to the hdmi tv run any emulator… Looks like my vita turns into a controller joystiq… =)

  54. ratatatattaa says:

    we want more apps ….. can you give to us more apps?

  55. Dee. says:

    How do you install? This doesn’t make much sense especially with no readme

  56. wes says:

    For all of you saying it doesn’t work you should read you need other itmes such as the ps sdk for your PC and the psvita dev assistant so its not just download and it works as wololo said” you need so motivation and/or programming skills”

  57. lalalalalla says:

    I know how to play left4dead onluy go to options in the game an put video and put short screen and adjust the size ok the pakxbd

  58. Justabit says:

    Although its allowed through my firewall, the ip I’m inputting is correct and both PSM and PSM studio are up to date (as a matter of fact I downloaded the both after this was posted and updated PSM Dev) I am still getting a black screen. Does anyone have any ideas what the problem could be?

  59. maxmeecehgan says:


  60. Ins4niaC says:

    I followed the directions carefully but when I try to load the app (or any of the demos) on my vita I get this error:

    “Failed to install application on device. Please make App Key Ring file from PSM Publishing Utility.”

    Can someone please tell me how to solve this? Thank you!

    • Billy says:

      You gotta buy a publisher license from sony. There isn’t a current fix for this right now. I currently am waiting myself :/

  66. ASD says:

  72. Je-Al says:

    wololo im having problem when i connect the ip address i only saw black screen on my vita…but i can use the right stick of my vita as mouse..what should i do..?

    • jonny2jo says:

      Just change the code and redeploy it into your vita and voila (i got it for the psm dev forum)

      Original code:

      // Set up the graphics system
      graphics = new GraphicsContext();
      sceneMain = new MainUI();

      dgl_connection = new dialog.DLG_CONNECTION();

      UISystem.SetScene(sceneMain, null);

      Fixed code:

      // Set up the graphics system
      graphics = new GraphicsContext();

      dgl_connection = new dialog.DLG_CONNECTION();


      • Dean says:

        I’m sorry but I am new to the whole PSM scene but I have obtained my publishing license today and I want to know where this code you have is supposed to go in the project. I don’t know where to put it and I am getting a black screen on my vita and the mobile simulator on my pc so something is blocking it please help!

  73. Hereiam says:

    Its the only way… Not that hard.

  74. Ryan says:

    Chill out bro? Heard of something called Google?
