    If possible are there any solutions where I can install the games to bubble? If not I'd like to know the other ways too. I'm trying to play Megaman Legends 1&2 with both analog sticks.

    Adrenaline if you are running Henkaku. It basically turns your Vita into a modded PSP. It will run all the great emulators available for PSP, and plays PSX very well.

    There's a way with ARK to seemingly install a bubble that directly load a PBP, and you can install a bubble for PSP games
    but I have no idea whether ARK allows PSX game or not

    I forgot
    Adrenaline runs PS1 games, but note that some people are reporting lag on some later versions of Adrenaline. IIRC 3 or 3.1 is the "best" for PS1 games. If you don't notice the lag, than latest is fine. You can put bubbles directly on the live area with this: http://wololo.net/2017/06/20/adrena...-psp-games-directly-livearea-3-60-adrenaline/ < But it's kind of a pain in the ass to do it every time.

    ARK also runs PS1 games, but without sound. You can also install separate bubbles with ARK, too.

    3.1 was the last lagless one, but it should have been fixed by now with v5.1. I believe it was caused by a graphics filter that you can disable now. That's why it only seemed to affect some games.

    Adrenaline 5.1 is the way to go, it fixed the lag on games on PSTV that @Tom Bombadildo said that it has on v.3.1

    I heard there were other issues on 5.1 with PS1 games, so I dunno if it's still considered "the best" just yet.

    I've personally noticed an issue with 5.1 when pressing the PS button to quit back to the XMB - the grey menu (with the volume bar etc) either lags greatly or doesn't work at all.

    Other than that it seems to work just fine for me anyway.

    I don't have this issue on my PSVita 1k
    Please, can you post this issue on Adrenaline github issue page? So we can get to see if more people are having this issue as well

    Best way to play PSX on a vita is on firmware 3.18 and use TN-X you have PERFECT games with PERFECT audio with no slow downs, well its native.

    It would if we didn't have Adrenaline. Adrenaline is updated TN-X with more features since it's using taiHEN power with it

    I'll sign up now and post an issue. It seems to develop after a short time running the game. Sometimes it just freezes the game up until you press the PS button again, sometimes it comes up but won't respond to button presses for a few seconds. It's just unreliable and laggy really.

    Yeah, I did tried TN-X and TN-V, Adrenaline is basically both together, it's even produced by the same developer.
    But as I said, on my PSVita 1k I had better results with Adrenaline

    People have reported issues with games on adrenaline and too many bugs, tn-x is just load and play with no adjustment needed and no slow downs or sound issues. TN-X wins.

    Righto hopefully that should be of some help :)

    Well that got closed quickly - sounds like it's going to be an issue for a while to anyone else who might be experiencing it

    I'm ok with what you think, just please, don't say stuff like it's a universal truth when it depends.
    For example, I have no slow downs or sound issues with Adrenaline, I didn't got most of the issues reported cuz mostly of these issues was PSTV specific, and I don't have one, so I never got these specific issues.

    Other advantage that I, personally, have is that Adrenaline is open source, if I find a bug, I can fix it myself, where TN-X and TN-V are closed source and if I find a bug, doesn't matter how small the bug is, I can't fix it and I can't ask for a fix once the developer only supports Adrenaline now.

    I don't care if you use TN-X as long you are ok with it. If it's all you need, then I have nothing to do with it.

    Btw, I'm trying hard to trigger your issue... But I simply can't. Maybe was a bad update from your side? Try download 5.1 again and manually substitute the adrenaline files

    I finally got the issue, but the probability is so low... I got the issue 2 times with 300 attempts
