Setup Instructions:

- You need ~1.5GB free space for data files.

- Make sure that you are either on 3.60 enso or 3.65 enso firmware version. Other versions may work too, but no support are provided for them! If you experience any issues apart from described in the Known Issues section, please upgrade or downgrade your firmware before asking for support.

- Make sure you have libshacccg.suprx in the ur0:/data/ folder on your console. If you don't, use ShaRKBR33D to get it quickly and easily.

- Install or update kubridge and FdFix by copying kubridge.skprx and fd_fix.skprx to your taiHEN plugins folder (usually ur0:tai) and adding two entries to your config.txt under *KERNEL:
*KERNEL
ur0:tai/kubridge.skprx
ur0:tai/fd_fix.skprx

! Don't install `fd_fix.skprx` if you're using the rePatch plugin !

- Legally obtain your copy of BackStab HD for Android in a form of an .apk file and data files. This port is tailored for v1.2.8d (latest) version of the game. Other versions may work too but no support is provided for them.
If you have it installed on your phone, you can get all the required files directly from it or by using any APK extractor you can find on Google Play.
Verify that your build is the correct one using sha1sum (can also be found as an online tool). sha1sum for lib/armeabi-v7a/libPirates.so must be 9a36ce92ac09f2908c155ab1debb3e138a3496b8

- Open the .apk with any zip explorer (like 7-Zip) and extract the file lib/armeabi-v7a/libPirates.so from the .apk into ux0:data/backstab/ on your Vita. Example of correct resulting path: ux0:data/backstab/libPirates.so

- Fetch the game data files from your device. You can find them at /sdcard/gameloft/games. Copy the com.gameloft.android.ANMP.GloftSDHM folder to ux0:data/backstab/ on your Vita. Example of correct resulting path: ux0:data/backstab/com.gameloft.android.ANMP.GloftSDHM/files/actors.gla

- Install BackstabHD.vpk.

- Change Language in-game. (Multilanguage tested: German, English, Japan , .....)


/

Controls:

Joys L or DPad - Move
Joys R - Camera
L1 - Aim Mode
R1 - Fire / Special Attack (when prompted in combat)
X - Jump / Sheathe Sword
O - Counterattack (when prompted in combat)
[] - Attack
/_\ - Interact / Switch ranged weapon (when aiming)
/_\ (Hold) - Call horse (only on some locations)
L1 + [] - Vengeance mode (when prompted in combat)
Select - Open Map
Start - Open Menu
Menus control = Touchscreen (PSTV+PS3 Controller working) (please read Issues point 5)


/

Known Issues: IMPORTANT

- when you launch the game for the first time, open the in-game settings (cogwheel icon in main menu), and do two things: Reduce controls sensitivity to minimum.In "Control Scheme", select Control Scheme 2.
- (Optional) Tap Settings in the bottom left corner of the port's LiveArea to adjust some settings. Namely, you can change analog sticks dead zones, change graphical detail level, and enable FPS limiter.
- On first levels, sometimes a loss of some sound (random, could be some of sfx, music or dialogue) may occur. Most likely, can not be fixed.
- Starting a new game over an old save loads the old save instead. If you're out of slots, you'll have to remove save files manually from the data folder.
- Please don't try to use buttons or analogs in main menu, use touchscreen.

Final Test :

PSTV 3.65 + PS3 Controller
This port is complete playable from start to end !
The graphics and textures are amazing, we have water and ice and fire effects, its perfect. The game is better than the most PSP or Vita games ! Its truly a perl and it was highlight for myself, playing the game in first time. The maps are very big and there are tons of hidden secrets and hidden extra missions. The difficulty is easy and I had only use my sword to deal with the enemys. Explore the world will take tons of hours gameplay fun ! The fights can be bloody and stealth attacks and fatalitys are possible.

- the game crash very often, its not a problem from the coder, its the game himself
- sometimes the in game videos dont work correct, but no big deal

All in one its fine, it has small mistakes here and there, but full playable.
Million thanks gl33ntwine & Rinnegatamante ! That was a highlight with tons of hours.
