After I published the article about UAE4All Mod 1.36 yesterday, I decided it was about time I beat the game Portal that I had spoken of in one of my GekiHEN Wishlist articles. To my shock, I realized that both normal saves and save-states were not working. I decided to contact the developer over this issue to see if it was a failure on my part or a bug and turns out part of it was a bug.
Developer rsn8887 has already pushed three more updates to UAE4All and among them is a fix to the savestates issue that I, and probably other people, was having. Among the other stuff that got fixed in these updates is the sound capabilities of the emulator. So if you were having issues with the sound in the games you’ve been playing, these updates might help in fixing that.
What is UAE4All Mod?
UAE4All is a popular emulator of the Amiga 500/1200 computer that has been ported to many platforms from the PC to the Dreamcast and Pandora. It was ported for us PS Vita users by developer cpajuste of ScummVM Vita fame. The emulator is fully featured and runs fullspeed and is the better alternative to the old PSPUAE emulator that you could run on the Vita’s PSP emulator. This mod version has been developed by rsn8887 and is based on cpajuste‘s source and it improves the emulator greatly in all areas you could wish for.
