    Hi guys, I just want to ask about your experiences of using PSX emulators on the Vita. I've tried Retroarch on Switch but there are crackling sounds. I cant enjoy Suikoden 2 at all. I've decided to try it on my Vita however I don't know which emu is the best. Thanks in advance.

    PS: I've read a similar post suggesting Adrenaline but the thread is already 2 years old.

    Adrenaline is the best. Adrenaline is PSP emu for PSP and PS1 games. made by Sony for PS1 games. just get the latest Adrenaline and you are good to go.

    Adrenaline is by the scene legend The Flow

    RetroArch is improving always. but i would recommend Adrenaline still.

    Yo, another Suikoden II fan! I would suggest getting the official PSN release of Suikoden II (eBoot) and not a converted PSX game, it fixes a glitch that can happen during the fight with the mist monster boss in the mountain pass early in the game.

    Which one's better though? The one released by Sony in PSN or this one? https://github.com/pyriell/gs2-bugfixes

    Damn, I never knew about this patch. As for which is better, obviously the patched version seems best, although certain guides online that exploit these glitches may no longer work. As for compatibility, the mist monster issue was some sort of compatibility issue with the PSX emulator the PSP/Adrenaline runs. The PSN release was fixed for this issue, something this patch doesn't do. There have been updates to the POPs emulator though since then, so it may not be an issue. The old way of getting around it was exporting the save before the fight, doing the fight in another emulator, then saving and re-importing the save. I guess you could also temporarily swap over to the official PSN release for just that bods fight then swap back. I'd say use the bug fixed version and simply see if you have any issues. I know I'll be trying it out.

    Hey, so turns out I can have the best of both worlds. I was able to extract the ISO from the official PSN Suikoden II, apply the patches to THAT ISO, then remade the eboot file with the official images and such. Now it has both the mist monster fix and all the other fixes. Thanks for bringing those fixes to my attention, looks like I'll be playing the game once again, lol.
