    I installed GoHANmem 2.0 in the right folder but Select + Right aren't doing anything.

    You need to create a game.txt file in the plugins folder as well and put the path of the plugin in as well as a 1 after it.

    So like:
    Code:
    ux0:plugins/GoHANmem.suprx 1

    GoHANmem comes with that game.txt file, already set up with that line.

    You are trying to use it with backup games only, correct? And you don't have any other plugins activated that might interfere with Gohanmem? Also make sure you're holding the buttons down long enough as well, sometimes it takes a few seconds.

    Other than that the only thing I can suggest is try deleting the plugins folder and re-transfer the plugins and a game.txt over.

    Games installed from mai dumps, yes. No other plugins installed, either. Tried holding the keys for a few seconds (ten, even), and no dice.

    Perhaps try loading games with different load options in MaiDump? There's really no reason it shouldn't be working, the only thing I can think of is either your game.txt is wrong somehow or your plugin is corrupt.

    Set load mode to 0 in MaiDump, which enabled plugins. Works now! Yay!

    Thanks, Mr. Pennywise! lol

    Excuse me, I have some trouble with plugins also, but I don't want to make a new thread, so I will post here.

    Actually, the only game which I can use plugin on my PS Vita right now is Steins;Gate (VT 2.0), so I guess there's no problem with game.txt settings, right?

    For the rest (all is mai dump), I can't activate any plugin in-game. I tried to change mode 5, 6 or 0, I also tried to rebuild database but still no success. I'm using Vita 1k EU 3G edition, is someone have the same situation?

    ====

    tl;dr: On my PS Vita right now, I can use plugin for Steins;Gate VT2.0 only but it doesn't work for the rest (maidump). Already changed mode, rebuilded database. So how to fix it? Thank in advance.

    If it works in one game it'll work in all dumped games, so it's not a game.txt problem.

    I honestly don't know why you might be having issues, I've never had any problems with plugins loading with any of my dumped games, maidump or Vitamin. I can't really suggest much else beyond deleting the plugins folder and transferring it over again.

    You're my life saver man! Thank you so much, every plugins work fine now. Damn, I stuck with that problem since the beginning of plugin development and really frustrated. Thank you again.
