    Thank you panzer_baboon.
    Goodnight. Someone knows if they are going to update this emulator so that the roms that some lentisimas are improved?, Example r-type and r-type 2 and r-type leo, go very slow. The roms of pc-engine do not go, those of megadrive also, those of msx, neither ,,, It is known if they are going to update it and improve something of this ????. Thank you.

    you're right. many other games (such as "joe & mac caveman ninja" for example) are very slow. the emulator crashes a lot also and quit to main psvita menu. i hope in a new version soon.

    It's sad that emulation of SEGA, TAITO, Data East... games are much less optimized and run slower than CPS1, CPS2 and NEO GEO games... :(
    PFBA is still a great way to play arcade games on the Vita!

    exactly! for example joe and mac caveman ninja is totally unplayable! it's sad to see that these games run perfectly on a galaxy s3 but are too slow on psvita hardware, due to a low optimization.

    I just came across this "no roms showing" problem again. Again it happened because I used Windows to copy the roms to the USB stick, for faster copy speed. It just doesn't work that way. But if I put the USB stick in the Vita TV and use FTP to transfer the roms to it, they show up fine.

    Guessing that since this has not been Updated in 2 Months, either the Dev is taking a break, or it is Dead?

    Some acknowledgement would be nice at the very least. People have been making requests, and they haven't heard "sure, we'll include that," or "we'll think about it," or even "the project is on hold." Just stony silence. Nobody likes being ignored.

    It's a homebrew emulator ported/enhanced by a few people in their spare time.
    The polite thing to do would be to thank them when/if there are updates, they do not owe us anything including posting to tell us there are no more updates.

    An easy way to check progress or if a project is on hold is to go to the github page and check activity there. If you go to github.com/cpasjuste/pfba and github.com/rsn8887/pfba , and look at recent commits, you will see that neither of us had time recently to work on the projects. If you check activity for a username on github you will see if and how they spend their time with coding.

    Nobody owes you or any of the others here that are complaining anything. It's posts like yours that cause many of these guys to stop working on homebrew/emulation. It's not like they're getting paid to do this. People should be thankful for their hard work.

    I'm extremely grateful for the work that cpasjuste and rsn8887 have done on this emulator.
