    Sweet. All we need now is for all cores to be in the one RetroArch VPK!

    • I like having 1 bubble

      THIS! I can’t get used to having 1000 bubbles for emulators when we can have a single app/bubble

      • Yes I can

        except psvita only allows 100bubbles in the livearea. That being said, I challenge all devs/hackers to tweak psvita system to allow for more than 100 bubbles, or 1000 bubbles, so that the post of this guy will be validated. Thank you.

    I’ve still been unable to get this to work. Attempting to load any actual games with any of the VPKs just unceremoniously dumps me back at the main RetroArch menu with no explanation as to why.

      What Retroarch emu are you using? if its NeoGeo you should use MAME Roms, also many people dont recommend using some of the emulators provided with Retroarch, because of of them ont work properly

      • SRKautroGP

        Oh i almost forgot, some emulators need a BIOS to be able to run Roms, just put the bios in the same folder as your Roms and you will be good to go!

    Actually, i prefer rgui. Its a lot simpler to use than the fancier xmb

    In this new version, does the keys X ans O work correctly. In the previous version, theses keys were mapped as japanese vitas (X to quit ans O to validate) ans there was no way to change that.

      Found how to swap the buttons, just edit the retroarch.cfg file :
      menu_ok_btn = “0”
      menu_cancel_btn = “8”

    >>At the rate that RetroArch nightlies get released it’s hard to write articles about every single change, every single day, even when there are none. With that said, it feels good to be able to write and remind people that this exists whenever a major update gets released, which is the case for today’s nightly.

    I just hope you’ll write one when the emulation gets really good and comfortable to play. You know, full speed, no freezes, quick saves, etc.

    I hope I’m not sounding ungrateful because I really don’t mean that – all the work going on around Vita hack is amazing. But I don’t want to experience games worse than what they are supposed to be, so for now I’m just reading about all the Vita scene without actually using anything.

    What should be awesome is to have every core in one vpk<3
