Moonlight PSVita v0.1.2 released: GFE 3.2 compatibility
The PSVita is probably one of the most capable handheld devices to date but developer “d3m3vilurr” (on github) has ported Moonlight to the Vita for those with a computer that supports NVIDIA GameStream. This is almost the equivalent of Remote Play for some PS3 games and PS4 games on the Vita.
Moonlight is an open-source version 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 (currently also available on Android/iOS). 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 thanks to “d3m3vilurr’s” port, we can use it on our Vitas too. You can check is your GPU is supported here. One can also use emulators like Dolphin via GameStream to play various emulator games. Both PCSX2 and Dolphin have worked with varying success rates but make sure you have a PC up to the task). It’s advised to have a decent internet connection (7Mbps+ upload speed) and a good GPU for an optimal experience.
What changed/got updated?
The changelog is as following:
- Compress binary
- Support GFE 3.2
There are also some known issues that may or may not get fixed so don’t bring them up as bugs:
- Screen delayed after reconnection
- Unpair not working
The main update here is that GFE 3.2 is supported which is the most recent version which was released yesterday. The binary is also compressed now so it will probably NOT work with HENkaku R6 (but then again, taiHEN is the future so start using taiHEN if you want to use the latest homebrew).
