    Hey everyone!

    So i keep seeing both Pkgj and Pkgi being mentioned. is there a difference between the two? should i have both on my hacked vita or does it not matter which one i have? currently i have Pkgj. also, im trying to get retroarch set up and was wondering what cores aside from nes, snes, genesis/mega drive, all 3 gameboys can it support? would i be able to load scummvm or maybe N64? maybe someone has a comprehensive list of what cores work and dont work might help so i know what i can add and shouldn't. Thanks everyone!

    About PKGI and PKGJ, you should know first that they use the link from sony official server to download encrypted Vita game, then decrypted into what you play. PKGJ has better feature which PKGI dont have, like DLC and PSX. All the links they used are provide by people who buy the game and recover the links then share, mainly on NoPayStation. PKGJ still the main client to download on vita.
    You can also use PC client for NPS browser beta to do the download then copy by USB to Vita, same result, PC connection faster. The reason for beta because older site do not get update anymore.

    About emulator on Vita, this topic has all you need:
    http://wololo.net/emulators-for-the-psp-ps-vita-the-ultimate-download-list/

    And about RetroArch, RetroArch on Vita best for:
    • NES - FCEUmm
    • SNES - Snes9x 2005 (Non-Super FX games)
    • GEN/CD - Genesis Plus GX
    • 32X - PicoDrive
    • Neo Geo / CPS - Final Burn Alpha
    • PC Engine / TurboGrafx 16 - MednaFen
    • GB/GBC - Gambatte
    Adrenaline (PSP) for:
    • PSP (duh)
    • PS1 (near 100% perfect if using latest)
    • GBA - use UO gрSP Kai v3.4 Test 4 Build 225

    For gba, using the latest nightlies you can now use retroarch. It's full speed in latest improvements. Way better than the psp emulators.

    Yeah, it is. Overclock to 500mhz, done. Pretty much everything is full speed on gba.

    What do you mean by "pretty much"? Try and be specific for once in your life.

    I got an even better idea. Why not just try it out and have a look for yourself rather than acting all keyboard warrior. I've told you that it's nigh on perfect now with overclock. It's up to you if you want to try it out, not for me to break it down even further for you.

    So what game or games specifically are you not getting full speed on? I'll test and see. But like I said I've tried everything I have (which is only about 40 games or so) and everything is running full speed.

    Soorry but one question. Graphic, audio wise the same, to force CPU to run at 500 hz to get the same result as other program running at 300hz, waste more power, with more heated CPU, why you two still argue, isnt it a sure thing this retroarch nightly running GBA help warm you in the winter?
