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.

    There is an issue with xmb menu driver on the latest versions of retroarch on vita which cause a gpu crash everytime you use the “close content” command. Therefore you’re kinda obliged to use the RGUI or ozone menu driver.

    Just thought you should put it in your article. I don’t remember on what version this bug appeared though and think the GBA performance from 1.7.7 makes it pointless to go back just for xmb imo but to each his own.

    Despite how much I love the Retro Arch project, the PS Vita port really is overall lackluster compared to the other available versions.
    Why are the data files separated from the main VPK file and why doesn’t it come pre-configured from the get-go is beyond my humble understanding of cross platform and homebrew developing… Something that is unintuitive as this just ends up hurting the port and the Vita homebrew landscape.

    Still, this tutorial was a good call to pick up my PS Vita, update my homebrew and get the latest Retro Arch up and running. And it has never looked this beautiful!
    Thank you for the article, Aurora!

    The fact that you need an effin tutorial to make RetroArch look semi-decent tells you more than enough about it… I really appreciate all the work put into it, but if I ever have the option to choose between standalone emu or RA, I always pick the standalone.

    I was wondering if you could give us some details on using minivitatv in combination with retroarch!
    2 Player with a Dualshock4 each would just be great – particularly with one of the new vita docks ;P !
    I am just really confused if i need to download a special build or if there is a trick to get everything running in retroarch 1.79/ 1.80?!
    In any case best regards! Keep the work up!

    Seems that the changes necessary are not in the master/nigthly builds right now…
