Early Homebrew test results with Tomtomdu80′s 2.06 VHBL

I’m sure many of you are wondering whether to update or not to 2.06 for the upcoming VHBL release. I’ve done some tests with some popular homebrews that should help make it an easier decision. 

Below you can find my results testing the compatibility of the more popular homebrews, including some that don’t work with TomTomDu80′s upcoming VHBL release. All of my tests were done on a 2.06 Vita. So far I can confirm that the compatibility with TomTomdu80′s exploit is ok, but not great. Some of the more poplar homebrew are not working. It may or not be able to be improved. I’ve personally been testing with the US version, but compatibility should be the same across all versions. You’ll want to take this into consideration when choosing whether to update or not.

Please remember however that VHBL is a usermode exploit so that means no playing PSP backups, using plugins, CEFs or anything else besides homebrew/emulators.

HOMEBREWS/apps THAT WORK

(note: links are to the specific versions that I tested, which might not be the latest version for each homebrew. In general, it is recommended to get the latest version, but sometimes VHBL gives us less choice)

  • PSPFILER- Popular file tool for the PSP
  • WAGIC- As always Wagic works, which is due to the fact of it being developed to run in tight environments. Wagic is a heroic fantasy card game, in which you fight as a wizard against the computer.
  • CSPSP- Nataku92′s CSPSP homebrew port of the ever-famous Counter-Strike PC title in 2D.
  • Cavestory- The popular platformer/Action adventure freeware indie game. (Leaving to Vita OS and returning to game causes no sound)

  • Jelly CarComplete the levels without falling in this crazy car game. The point? You can change the size of your car at will, to avoid falling in holes.
  • Ragdoll Cannon- A 2d puzzle game. Shoot the ragdoll guy from the cannon. Hit the target to go to the next level. (Sound issues)
  • Vmenu- An alternate menu by developer Neur0n.
  • Bookr- A great homebrew app for reading PDF/txt veiwer.

HOMEBREWS/Apps THAT DON’T WORK

For all these homebrews, unless specified otherwise, I am still looking for solutions, so don’t give up hope, but don’t assume they will be compatible when we release.

  • DaedalusX64 (N64 Emulator)-Its a shame daedalus doesn’t work. I tried both r777, r790 and R13
  • gPSP kai-(GBA Emulator) (Loads but issue with savegame, might be fixable)
  • SNES9X TYL (Super Nintendo Emulator)- Black screen
  • DOOM- Might be fixiable, some issues seem to occur when loading certain sound threads
  • DUKE 3D
  • HALO: Revamped
  • Slender Portable
  • YMENU & PYMENU- Ive tried everything to get these to work, but its a no go.
  • Cubic Zombies
  • Lamecraft- Failure to generate terrain and errors
  • S4inexCraft
  • Quake Arcade
  • QuakePSP
  • Mario Fusion
  • HALF LIFE
  • NAZI ZOMBIES
  • Left 4 Quake
  • Atari5200

      was just wondering if this could possibly in he near future turn into a kernel exploit? I asked on youtube but no one responded… but I tell u guys this much if I knew the fundamentles of finding a game for an exploit I would deffinitly help with the grinding the gears,i love the idea of homebrew just like n e body else…. but the idea of an iso loader would be excellent. hats off to the dudes spending their spair time to make therest of us jackasses happy. thanks for releasing the info thus far

      That requires internet if Im not mistaken, so you’d need a kernel exploit. Im sure its compatible on TN-V, but I thought that got shut down anyways? No problem.

    So GBA and Snes emulators work? In your blog post you said they didn’t but in the comments you later stated they do, can you update the blog post so people don’t get confused or is that not possible?

    So basically this VHBL is useless because I can’t play certain emulators I really just wanted to play snes games but that opportunity is probably gone.

    dont be stupid acting like you are not satisfied with the VHBL playing homebrews and emulators…..if you are not on 2.0.6 stfu!stay with your firmware with the exploit that can play iso.but for us who are on the new firmware its a goodnews that we can try to play some homebrews….if you want iso buy psp its so cheap nowadays….

    Anyway thanks wololo for the info about the game and to Tomtomdu80 good job!!!!

    1. Pisson’s avatar

      It is not stupid to ask for CF !! The TomTom80 VHBL is a good thing but all nintendo are not available. I have already a PSP fat with CF but I have just baught a Ps Vita in order to chnage the screen size and resolution and hope for a N64 emulator that take advantage of the Vita power , that’s all.
      Have a nice day

    Thank you Jd8531, Tomtomdu80, and Wololo for all the time you’ve put in VHBL. People here are just being sacks of shit. God forbid an emulator doesnt work with the NEW exploit! I never heard of that happening. Yea I wanted SNES, GBA, and whatnot. But it looks like you people will have to wait. The developers of the homebrew emulators and games will have to work with the new exploit, these things take time, and this doesnt mean the emulators will never work, it just means we’ll have to wait until they are patched. Once again, thank you for the effort you guys put into this figuring out and testing this stuff, I wish I knew a little to help you guys move forward.

      They wont work. The emulator/homebrew devs are either not gonna want to patch them or are long gone from the scene. Whos gonna patch up all these games, especially Duke3d?

      I will have to test these myself. Thank god for having this exploit myself…

            good that means I only need to install one INSTALL.ZIP file then I can transfer everything through FTP instead of putting INSTALL.ZIP in the savegame files right?
