PPSSPP, the PSP emulator that everyone is talking about nowadays, has released a new version, 1.1.1, with some bug fixes!
What is PPSSPP?
Well, PPSSPP is a very popular PSP emulator, that runs in a plethora of systems, such as Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Android, iOS and much more! Able to emulate commercial games, and with a much better quality in most games than the original hardware, it’s one of the best PSP emulators out there.
So, what has changed?
Well, according to the PPSSPP official website, the new version has:
Fixed new crash in Persona and other games on ARM64, like Galaxy S6
Fixed crashes when trying to launch web browser when not present on Android, like on Android TV
Fix crash in games that used “depal” functionality (OpenGL)
Fixed rounding mode problems in the JITs
Fix crash when loading savestates many times, and savestate compatibility on Android-x86
Fix minor glitch in Ridge Racer
While this might seem like a very minor update, it’s always good to see the team behind the emulator working on it!
You need to convert your PSP games into ISO files or CSO files. To legally turn your own PSP games into .ISO files, you need to install “Custom Firmware” on your PSP. Google for that. Then follow these steps:
Insert the UMD into your PSP.
Connect your PSP to your PC with a USB cable.
At the PSP menu, press Select. In the menu that pops up (only on Custom Firmware), choose to UMD as USB Device.
Still in the PSP menu, choose USB Connection in the Settings menu (to the left).
On your PC, a folder will pop up, containing a virtual ISO file. To copy the game to your PC, simply drag this to somewhere on your harddrive and the copy will start. Done!
