Vita Moonlight Alpha 6, more bug fixes
Developer d3m3vilurr is back at it with another Moonlight update that fixes quite a few bugs with is one of my favourite applications for the Vita. After doing some testing myself I can report that all the issues I had with Vita Moonlight and the GeForce Experience 3.x builds seem to be all gone: first I wouldn’t get image, then my Vita refused to pair with my computer and would crash every time during the pairing process. Now I think it’s safe to tell any users who were on the fence with GFE 3.0+ that you can update freely and still enjoy your PC games on your Vita, whenever you feel like. This update also brings back the analog sticks for Vita 2000 users, as well as fixing some memory leaks and issues with control remapping.
What is Vita Moonlight?
Moonlight is an open-source implementation of the nVidia GameStream client that allows you to stream your Steam games (and some non-steam ones) to a mobile device of your choice. It allows for high-quality streaming with minimal to no input lag of your PC games. Originally the GameStream system only allowed to stream to nVidia Shield devices, but Moonlight allowed people to stream to their favorite devices and now we can use it on our Vitas too. You can check is your GPU is supported here.
