The SNES, SMS and Genesis ones are the only ones I've tried so far and all work great. Genesis doesn't support save states but I can't see it being long till that's fixed. I'm so excited about this new hack, I've been hoping for a full Vita hack for years and this is awesome. Keeping my fingers crossed for a native N64 emulator now.

Genesis plus does support save states, and it also play sms and gg roms so there no need for the other smsplus emulator.

The one I downloaded from the HENkaku site doesn't, it's got the menu there and you can save, but when you go to load the save nothing happens. It says on the page it doesn't support savestates yet :

https://github.com/frangarcj/Genesis-Plus-GX/releases/tag/1.7.5-RC-Henkaku

Is there another version that does, then? Thanks for info about supporting SMS games though, didn't realise that.

I'm hoping we see a MAME release and ScummVM with touch support too at some point.

EDIT : That release I linked to doesn't support SMS yet. I'm guessing it'll all be incoming though. I think the PSP release does, doesn't it?

According to this person on twitter https://twitter.com/_Falaschi_/status/759580494086434816 we can already run PSP games or demos without vhbl, the games work natively they just have to be DRM free, and put the games in right directory.

Actually, that wasn't what I was talking about. VHBL can run homebrews and emulators that were meant for the PSP, they can't actually run PSP games or demos.

Yes, your link shows that it may be possible to play PSP dumps (and maybe vita dumps too?) if its DRM free. Someone is probably already working on a no DRM isoloader

Put SMS and GG Roms in a zip, that the only way they are gonna work on the emulator. For some reason i can only load roms in zip files.

Apperently when i created the savestate, it shows it was created with a picture, but i never loaded it as i didn't need to yet.
Upon closer obseravtion it didn't load but continue game as normal. So my bad. :blush:

Loading states don't work but creating them do? What the heck??:unsure:

I wonder what would happen if you loaded the save state file as a new game rather than from the savestate menu? I'm gonna try that now. Works on PC emulators.

The GBC emulator in the showcase is fantastic, been playing through Crystal again on my Vita. I would say wait about a minute after you've saved before closing the app though, it doesn't seem to properly save straight away. I've lost a few hours data from being too hasty :P

All I really want at the moment is save states working in the Genesis emulator :( Anyone know if Picodrive will be released working on Vita at any point?

    I just ordered one these, got tired of bunch of external drives for dif game systems game backups (Some require FAT32, some NTFS), so wanna combine them

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Does it cap out at a certain tb
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    no, i can switch to which drive I want to access with a button on it, I have 4 2tb and 1 4tb, all dif formats, so will work good for me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So you could have a petabyte with it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    You made me go back and look, it says 32tb max per drive. It will be nice when setting up game systems, I can carry one enclosure around, instead of grabbing the right Ext hdd for, say Xbox360 games
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So about 128tb still more than you'd ever need

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I thought about just buying a new ext hdd 12tb like you shown, then format multiple partitions on it, but I'm lazy.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Buy 4 won't have to

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    It was only $75 so still cheaper than a new drive. And less hassle. It would take forever to copy everything over also.

    I like retroarch, once you set it up completely, it's cool. Artwork, summary, and screen shots for all your games is a nice touch. It's basically a organizer for all your emulators/games.
