    Hello,

    I've tried for hours and days now to get this to work and I'm literally pulling my hair out now. I'm about 10 minutes away from smashing this vita.

    I just cannot properly install gpsp, I've been all over the internet and just keep seeing a million conflicting descriptions, use FTP, ZIP the file, don't ZIP the file, put in this directory, put in that directory. I have no idea what to do. I don't know what file to put where or anything and I'm just sick now.

    I've got QCMA, VHBL, GPSP, GBA bios and ROMs. I just need a decent set of instructions with the correct places to put the files please, before I just lose it.

    It's the hot new thing, it's Vita-mode homebrew. If you're on 3.60 firmware you can use it.
    https://henkaku.xyz/

    This will give you access to mGBA, a GBA emulator which runs in Vita mode.

    But if you still want to use gpsp or maybe TempGBA in PSP mode, HENkaku will help you as well. I've had trouble using FTP in VHBL, because the EBOOT.PBP file doesn't copy correctly. If you use HENkaku's FTP client, then you can copy your PSP homebrew more easily.

    PSP homebrew folders (folders containing an EBOOT.PBP file) can be copied into the ux0:/pspemu/PSP/VHBL folder.

    It looks good, its nice to be able to actually access the file structure. However, it says I need to have a .vpk file but the VHBL folder isn't that.

    I see what you're on about now, I'm going to try uploading the GPSP folder into that now.

    Does gPSP need to be a .ZIP file? I've copied it over unzipped and I can't run it, it just opens the files contents and when I try to run the EBOOT.PBP it just says an error has occurred

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    I've uploaded my file structure I'm just stumped. I've copied the contents of VHBL into the VHBL folder, then in there I've placed both a zipped and unzipped version of gPSP. I just can't launch anything from there. I've obviously missed something somewhere here, it's just getting frustrating now. File.png

    No problem, I've figured out some of it though I'm guessing I need to zip the gPSP folder and give it the extension .vpk? When I try to install it on the ps vita though ti says out of memory.

    No, that's incorrect.
    .vpk is a format for Vita mode homebrew.
    gPSP is PSP homebrew, and will only run from a PSP mode loader such as VHBL.
    mGBA is Vita mode, so that can be converted to .vpk (though I'm not sure specifically how)

    I managed to find a mGBA.vpk but when I ran the games they were very slow and jittery. Looked through all the configuration options available and couldn't see a way to fix it. Probably time I just gave up

    You need to access through the file manager (HENKaku) and go to your PSP folder and unzip the gpsp emulator and transfer it to PSP/GAME you need to install VHBL in order to use gpsp otherwise mGBA is your only option :P you can check wololo if you want to know how to instal VHBL ^^

    mGBA on Vita isn't optimised since Vita homebrew doesn't get nearly the attention the PSP did.

    gpSP still works well.

    I had VHBL installed but I couldn't install gPSP through it, I tried zipping it and calling it INSTALL.ZIP and placing it in my folder PS VITA/PSAVEDATA/###/ but it wouldn't install. I couldn't even see the folder there when I looked in my VHBL.

    If you use Henkaku you don't even need to use the cumbersome INSTALL.ZIP install method, you can just copy your emulators into pspemu/PSP/VHBL/ directly over FTP.

    A normal zip won't work, it has to be uncompressed. There's no point using an INSTALL.ZIP unless you can't FTP though.

    I used FTP and copied gPSP directly into that folder but had no way to launch / install it
