Like for example, could someone maybe RE Killzone for the modified KZ3 engine they used for Mercenaries?

also is modding games any easier now? Discounting that modded VPKs can be shared (taking out the manual bits in undubbing certain games) is the actual modding itself any easier?


TL;DR I guess my only real question, is if Vitamin leaves the games unencrypted (but still playable) or if it only leaves us with a VPK that's had it's DRM ripped. Making modding easier to do if the former, or only enabling Piracy if the latter

My question is where will be created a game launcher gui. Is getting me nervous see so many bubbles. I prefer a clean banner selection like ppssppppxyz for android. Or a wiflow style with 3d box covers could be nice too.

Why not just put the bubbles into a "Vita Games" folder?

Just Curious, if we can rip data, can we write it? because holy shit the possibilities, u could buy a shitload of cheap games and write much larger better games to the carts, u wouldnt need a giant ass mem card! however this is more of a question do u guys think this might be possible?

I think carts are read-only. You need a memory card if you want to save your game, I think.
This is not an issue with Vita2000 - it has built-in 1GB memory card.

no no i mean overwrite the game on the card and store applications or other game backups in it, so use it to store games/apps/homebrew and still have the mem card in there to store important stuff like henkaku and what not

Improved framerate due to Vitamin dumps getting to work with amphetamine plugin which changes CPU and GPU clock rate (via holding for a while select).

I will try it. Thanks.
But i dont like the bubbles at all. I keep my hopes high. Someday a mod like cyanogen will wipe this system apart and bring a nice and beautifull new style.
