I've not really been involved with the Vita scene since Ironhax came out on the 3DS last August, but at the moment I'm on the latest firmware, with the same VHBL bubble I've had since 3.35. I did have it on 3.51 for a while to use Rejuvenate, but I decided to update to the latest in November. I'm now wondering what can be done now on 3.55, since August. Is there a new version of TNX that can be used to get PSX emulation with sound, or is there some sort of workaround? That's the main thing I want from the Vita homebrew scene now that the 3DS emulates classic consoles decently.

Thanks if you know of anything you can update me on.

Why did you decide to update your Vita twice exactly?
Also, do you have a PS3?

I was trying to get online in PSO2, because I felt like playing for a bit.
Ah, that's understandable now! I don't think the Firmware spoofer would've done the trick either.. :/

Nevertheless, you are updated now, and there's not really much you can do about it now.

Speaking of not much you can do, for 3.55 users, you can only purchase Minina Lyar Chronicles from the online PS Store (USA and JP users only) and perform a savedata exploit to install a TN-V bubble or an ARK-2 bubble. (TN-V is better IMO).

Is there anything for PAL users?

That's a shame. It would have been nice to play some old PSX games on my Vita.
maybe you could buy a normal, cheap PSP-1000 or something. They're only about £30 in the UK now. But I guess you would want nice high-definition graphics using the Vita.

If you can find a ps tv on 3.20 (launch day) then you can play all the psp/ps1 Isos perfectly all day long :)

I say this if you have a PSP already hacked then you have already got what the PSVita has, so nothing new! I was really hoping that the web browser hack would lead to something but it has been around along time now and nothing yet has happened with it :( My 3.01 Vita has that much dust on it, it probably wont work anymore in fact I cant even remember now how to activate the hack anymore to access ePSP! last time I dragged my Vita out was for the Rejuvenate hack trying to get the dev menu on it but I gave up in the end with frustration and lets face it it was nothing special anyway in the end! the only rejuvenation it gave me was ageing with all the stress, it certainly never made me feel young again!!!!

Well Rejuvenate is a pain to get going (took me about six attempts, loads of reading up/tutorial videos) and the most use I have for it is SNES emulation which whips what was capable on the PSP, and testing other emulators. So getting it working depends on how much you want decent SNES emulation, from my perspective! And there's the potential for other useful stuff in future I guess. Remember it's still only been around 6 months and the Vita is trickier to code for, it's not fair to expect miracles in that time IMO.

You aren't going to get that on a Vita, either. It'll be worse, actually, due to needing to stretch to an even bigger screen.

It still makes for the best ps1 portable though, especially now we have L2 and R2 grips for both models :)

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
