Hello everyone and welcome to 2017! I hope everyone had a great révellion and all the best comes your way in 2017. Which brings me to the first release (on the blog) for 2017, coming your way from developer frangarcj: Oclock! With this, us taiHEN users finally get one of the best thing we could get, the ability to overclock slower games to get better and smoother gameplay. For those wonder, overclocking the Vita has little chance of damaging your device. I had my PSP overclocked 24/7 for years and it never suffered any damage in any way.
According to the developer, this release has two purposes:
For the end-user is a slim version of amphetamine that is taihen native. For the developer it describes a way of showing a menu on a taihen plugin without the need of another thread.
Which means this is a plugin that is much of a teaching tool as it is useful for us normal users. Pretty neat!
What is Oclock Vita?
Oclock Vita is a plugin developed by frangarcj and it is a simple overclocking plugin so you can get better performance out of your games. Nothing more, nothing less. It is created for the taiHEN framework so it is compatible with all taiHEN/HENkaku-running PS Vitas. Finally everyone gets access to overclocking!
Put “oclockvita.suprx” in ‘tai’ folder in the root of your Vita.
Change config.txt in that directory to load plugin for title of your choice by adding new lines like below:
# titleid for your game (this one is for Root//Letter for example)
To get your hands on the latest release of Oclock Vita, just head on over to frangarcj‘s GitHub release page and grab the latest vpk. If you have any issues I’d recommend leaving a ticket in the issues, but also to check out my ticket describing the issues I had before the plugin worked.
