    Tested it with VD2. Now it won't crash anymore at the Intro. But the rain still drags the FPS down to 5~10fps.

    FPS is a constant 5-10 fps or is something like constant stuttering?

    Its stuttering. You can reproduce it right after the start of VD2, after the scene with the logo and the bat. Highest fps I was getting during this raining scene was 10fps.

    Could you download https://easyrpg.org/downloads/tmp/EasyRPG.vpk again? This should make the weather a bit faster but sounds more like a sound effect then a performance problem :/

    (make sure that the file is newer and you don't get it from your browser cache)

    Could you also take a look in the easyrpg_log.txt which should be created in ux0:/easyrpg-player ? and paste the "Thread priority is" line here?

    Btw the VD2 intro is very resource heavy. It has a BGM, multiple looping Sound effects (horses and rain and random lightning), weather effects and tone (color change for the atmosphere) effects. This will never run fullspeed on the Vita.

    Tested it, this time with VD1, the rain still drags the FPS down and its stuttering.
    And I get a "No free channels available" message.

    And here is the stuff from the txt:
    Debug: Thread priority is 0

    Hope thats what you wanted, there is lots of stuff inside the txt.

    E::// I just uploaded the txt, hope all that stuff inside there can help somehow.

    Wups, forgot to disable some debug output. okay, thanks for testing, i don't think there will be gigantic speed improvments in the next release for these games. This needs changes in the player audio code which is more work.

    Here is another release without debug output: https://easyrpg.org/downloads/tmp/EasyRPG.vpk but will probably not make much of a difference :(

    Nah, I'm glad that someone does all that porting work. I can wait a few years. c:
    And it's playable so far, yeah, it sucks a bit with the rain, but oh well, as long as we can play the games. c:

    So, tested all 3 - with VD1

    - EasyRPG1: Sound is very good, fps, while it rains is 45~60 (its jumping alot)and the sound is stuttering, I would say its very playable. Only problem so far is, after the rain ends, the fps dropped to 16 fps and stays there. Also the fps drops down to 12~ while it gets dark ingame.

    - EasyRPG2: Without the rain, the fps stays at 58~60 and the sound is very good. While it rais, the fps jumps between 35~60 with stuttering sound. Also the fps drops down to 12~ while it gets dark ingame.

    - EasyRPG4: Sound is very good, without the rain - fps also stays at 60~61. The fps also jumps between 35~60 while its raining - with stuttering sound, and the fps also drops below 16~ while it gets dark ingame.

    Also, all 3 got sound problems inside the menu, it's like a crunching sound while selecting an Item or an option.

    Latest nightly build does not work for me, the game just crash after I select start new game.
    The game also crash when you press 'O' or exit in the main menu (I assume they are the same).
    Will you fix it so they properly exit instead of crashing? Like, is this on purpose?

    Also, will you introduce controls mapping?
    I want to use 'O' to select instead of 'X'.
    Regardless, thanks for you hardwork! Really love the application!

    This is the crash for closing the game.
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9yGa15GieVUa2tXUFlEMV94Q2M/view?usp=sharing
    This is the crash after starting a new game in Ib with latest build.
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9yGa15GieVUUTEyeVd1RzctSGM/view?usp=sharing

    Here's other information if you're interested:
    The working build for me is easyrpg1.vpk in the zip you uploaded for another to try previously.
    Anytime there's an overlay in the game, the game drops to 17+fps.
    Music for the specific scenario will stop playing if game is interrupted (multitasking and then back into the game or locking vita).

    Thanks!

    Sorry for double post.

    Update:
    Installed the latest test build from 'https://rinnegatamante.it/EasyRPG_bigheap.vpk' instead of the one from OP thread links.

    Games play properly now (Tested Ib), will update about performance in a thread in your forum.
    Unfortunately, ending the application via the main menu still crashes it, Dumpfile: 'https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9yGa15GieVUekZ4bjdpOWhTczg/view?usp=sharing'
    Cheers!
