It’s been a few months since Vita Moonlight was updated but its current maintainer ‘d3m3vilurr’ hasn’t forgotten it as he’s just released version 0.4! Version 0.4 brings about some small tweaks that make your experience better and also patched up an notable issue.
Moonlight is an open-source implementation of Nvidia’s GameStream protocol which allows you to stream your games/emulators from your PC to another device over LAN at good framerates with minimal input lag.
Vita Moonlight even allows you to play modern Zelda games on your PSVita! Video by Martin2676565
This technology is particularly useful for people who have a high-end computer but also make use of lower-end hardware and it could also make for some pretty interesting situations on your PSVita as you could use it to play emulated Wii/Wii U games! Yes, this allows you to play recent Legend of Zelda games on the PSVita as Cemu (a Wii U emulator) can even emulate Zelda titles (like BotW) that are available on the Switch.
To use Moonlight, you must have a desktop or laptop computer with a supported NVIDIA graphics card, a good internet connection and a CPU that isn’t too old. System requirements can be viewed here. Best results can be achieved if the computer you’re streaming with is connected via Ethernet.
What does Vita Moonlight 0.4 bring along?
Vita Moonlight 0.4 brings about the following updates:
The app list is now sorted alphabetically so you can find the game you’re looking for more easily
The special input configuration settings have been improved
You can now map more mouse buttons which could be useful if you use a multi-button mouse on your main system
A connection issue was fixed as some video clean-up functions have been added
The base code has been updated with some changes from the upstream Moonlight branch
To grab Vita Moonlight, simply open VHBB on your PSVita and grab it from there. Alternatively, you can also grab the VPK from the link below and install it manually via VitaShell.

I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.
