    I'm playing Danganronpa at the moment, and all that text on a small screen gives my a headache after a while. So I was wondering is something like Moonlight on backwards existed, or if it is even possible.

    Thanks!

    At the moment, no. It should theoretically be possible with taiHen now, since plugin loading now runs at system levels so it's only a matter of time and interest.

    There's a plugin like this for the PSP, called RemoteJoyLite, which worked fairly ok, so I would imagine someone might figure out something for the Vita as well.

    I think the plug-in RinCheat has an option like that.

    I nearly forgot about that, yeah. The only downside for that is compatibility is a bit iffy, not all games work with streaming and it can be fairly choppy.

    Gambia, The
    Just tested the Vita ->PC stream function of rinCheat.
    1.even on best quality it doesn't look ideal as hoped. You can't change the size of the streaming window(maybe if you change Windows resolution).
    2.Even on lowest quality it has a bit of frameskipping.
    3.The description in the readme is kinda incomplete. I never used Amphetamine so i had no game.txt folder. Dunno if that creates it or not.
    I understood, that I have to create it myself.
    It worked but streaming was not activated.
    You have to not just add the line
    Code:
    ux0:Plugins/rinCheat.suprx 1
    but also(if you want to use the stream):
    Code:
    ux0:/data/rinCheat/net_module.suprx 1
    so together game.txt =

    Code:
    ux0:Plugins/rinCheat.suprx 1
    ux0:/data/rinCheat/net_module.suprx 1
    4.Some official and Wololo listed rinCheat DLs doesn't include the rinCheat Streamer.exe
    It was included here:
    http://www.psx-place.com/threads/ri...gin-stream-screen-over-wifi-new-cheats.11233/

    5.It won't stream sound, you could hook your Vita to a different sound system via audio out.

    6.after all these critics, I have to say it's already awesome to have this option at this state and I hope it will get a bit more shaped over time.

    I think it could increase quality if you stream over a USB cable, like on PSP days.

    7.What would be really incredible, if we could use either a DS3/4 controller directly connected to Vita or maybe, like PSP, use a Controller on PC.

    Thank you for al the replies (in particular Evilengine)!
    Given the state of things, I suppose I'll wait for something more polished, but I'll keep an eye on rinCheat.

    Same for both PSTV and PSV. On the PSTV, you may want to do audio out via Bluetooth as it lacks a headphone jack.

    Because when a regular Vita allows everything a PSTV allows, plus the portability with buttons and screen you don't need a PSTV.

    Personally, I'd enjoy playing on my pc monitor when I'm simply on the couch.

    Don't know why people are arguing over this. I got an used PSTV for 20 bucks and no more headache reading those small texts. If i need the portability i'll just switch the card which take less than 1 min. Why streaming when you can do this for such a small fee and without quality/framerate problems.
