PPSSPP update: Now use a controller on your android device

The PPSSPP (psp emulator), just updated right after I posted a working game list. The best part of this update is you can use a third party controller on your android device now. It even has a how to download psp and homebrew games section. So far it fixes many issues with a lot of the games, that I tested. So it’s been Nearly two months of no releases are over, and a new PPSSPP is out. As always, there have been incredible progress:

 

  • Much improved control mapping, and autoconfig for a few devices like Shield
  • Large speed boosts in many games
  • Improved touchscreen control latency, important for rhythm games
  • Huge improvements to our internal PSP debugger by Kingcom!
  • A number of new games became compatible, such as Final Fantasy Tactics which just has some audio issues left.
  • A completely redesigned user interface, unlike the previous static one this one can grow with the emulator and has keyboard/controller navigation support, for the full lean-back experience!
  • Improved frameskipping, increasing playability on slower devices.ppsspp

So get downloading and enjoy! And thanks to all the contributors for their incredible work. If you would like to use your ps3 controller on the your android refer to this article: Android gaming with your PS3 controller

    no releases for over two months?
    there been at least 5 update per day which anyone can download.
    in fact, in 2 months, it jump from 0.5 to 0.8,
    how in the world did you get the “no releases for over two months” part?

      I said “Nearly two months” because all three version have been updated, this time Android,Windows 32bit,Windows 64bit. This time it was a big update and a good one for all three version. On 2013-08-31 was the last one and it was just a Update language. So no real big fixes,like this one: 1c52b76 dc9b515Merge pull request #3544 from unknownbrackets/module-importsInvalidate icache on stub/var import update. It has made many games work now, like DBZ tag team works I’m updating my game list.

    @hackinformer I would like to add that the latest version of ppsspp is (0.9.1). I’ve been following this emulator since version (0.5). And latest version was released not 8/31/2013 but 8/21/2013. Just saying! for those of you who want this emulator you can visit there site http://www.ppsspp.org

    It is the best psp emulator I’ve used so far. I am playing Crisis Core with below settings:
    mode: non-buffered rendering
    frameskipping: 2 during gameplay and 3 when in video cutscenes.

    Man, I had never heard of this emulator before! It works 99 percent perfect on average for all of my games for PC. I havent tried it for mobile just yet but I just wanted to say, DAMN! It works really well and the UI is the best UI of any emulator out there.

      How the hell did you get it to work for 99% of your games? The only game I’ve gotten to work is Ace Combat Skies of Deception and even on that one the sound is screwed up on some levels. Every other game I’ve tried on PC either freezes on start up or just black screens.

    Hi, first of all, thank you for providing such an amazing app that allows me to enjoy all my fav. psp games. Now I’m trying to get serious with my ppsspp experience by getting a bluetooth controller. I was thinking of getting ipega for starter. Is this device compatible with your app? Or is there any other controller that is optimized with ppsspp that you can recommend?? Really appreciate your help. thanks!

    recently as I’ve been using a controller with my ppsspp it causes all of the D-pad buttons to become simultaneously used, even when I disable them. is there anyway to fix this?
