    Yes it does, but for some reason I never spend it on what I want and ends up in other people's pockets X[

    Also on topic, another game I have tested

    Yeah and the phone cost at least twice the amount of an actual PlayStation two :rofl2:
    I'm actually all for emulators on phones because it shows the power and capabilities and I'm a total nerd for android.

    I have always wanted one of those phones because of the built in buttons. The closest I had was this HTC back in 2011 with a slide physical keyboard that my step dad gave me. It stopped working 2 weeks later....then I had an ipod touch but they suck with emulators.

    Since it's come out that the developers stole code from the PCSX2 developers and the PPSSPP team, I am no longer interested in this app unless they follow the GNU license rules and release their source code. Taking credit and money for other people's hard work is just low. I'm done here.

    it'll never run at good speeds or be playable enough as the tech on phones are too weak, needs at least 3ghz+ to get consistent performance and decent gpu to boot - will be a while yet...

    It already boots and some games run 50-60 fps. On my phone in God Of War 2 I made it past the first 30 minutes of the game.

    I forgot
    Clock speed has very little to do with it these days, this isn't early 2000 any more. And neither does having a decent GPU, it's only required if you're going to be using filters and upscaling various other enhancements, running everything native requires very little GPU power at this point.

    These days, for emulation anyways, it's more about IPC than anything, and ARM CPUs (like pre-Ryzen AMD CPUs, that's why an 8 core FX8350 running at 4.2ghz couldn't beat out a lowly dual core Pentium G3258 running at 3.2ghz in Dolphin benchmarks) have very low IPC. That's why full speed emulation (without using a bunch of speed hacks, like DamonPS2 does) is still far off for mobile devices. Unless ARM makes a massive change in architecture to increase IPC (unlikely), we're still probably 3-4 years off from at least broad, playable compatibility for PS2, or even Dolphin (again, without using a bunch of speed hacks).

    I missed this recently, but I gather the free version they finally put out was riddled with ads and broke it?

    Really want to test this on my shield tv, if anyone has info please let me know.

    Yea. Use the official version. It works fine. It called PCSX2 for PC. This crap is stolen code with (not confirmed) trojan virus in it. Dont bother.
