    The major PlayStation Portable emulator, PPSSPP has been updated to a new version: 1.6. This update brings better performance for both the Vulkan and OpenGL backends, allowing for better compatibility and speed in multi core devices. Bugfixes for iOS and Android versions have implemented as well. Retroarch support has been added, along with Vulkan support for the Linux version. All platform versions have received the update, but the Android one is still being tested for bugs and will be updated throughout the week.

    For a second I read "Retroarch support has been ended" and was confused as to why.

    I just hope that games such as the Project DIVA line don't just outright crash anymore when trying to play them... My PSP is dead, so I can't play them:sad:

    They managed to get a even better performance for OpenGL? Dosn't runs it already on every toaster out there? :rofl2: I'm always amazed on what kind of old PCs it runs flawlessly.
    Offical RetroArch support is a nice addition since it gets ported to all kind of platforms :yay:

    I haven't found a game that I can't run well with this. Such a great emulator!:)

    What's your setup? For me they work fine until I try to play a song, then the moment I press anything other than pause, PPSSPP just crashes at best or bluescreens me out of nowhere at worst...:/ Usually it's just the crash though. Using a CSO version and I know it's not corrupted or anything as it's working just fine on the actual system. I'm not on latest version though and haven't updated in a bit, so that may be it, but I'm on 1.3 version and get the issue on any game that was made with the same engine as Project DIVA.

    I think you just answered your own question. Version 1.3 is over 1.5 years old. There have been numerous updates to the emulator since that time, with a number of the updates fixing bugs and crashes in certain game. I would update and try the game in the newest version before digging into any setting tweaks.

    May I ask why you're on 1.3 when 1.6 just came out? 1.5.4 has been out for ages prior, just curious.

    Nice to see PPSSPP get an update. I use it on my lower-end phone quite a bit, so to have performance updates is quite nice; maybe I won't have to use frameskip as often for games.

    I didn't bother updating for the simple reason it's too big of a pain reconfiguring everything because moving the settings configuration from the old installation to the new never worked properly for me in the past. Also, I have more important things to do than to keep checking for new versions and whatnot. Last time I checked a newer version was the 1.5.1 and it actually had more bugs/crashes for me than 1.3 so I went back and never bothered again.

    Is there a suggested setup though? Because I like cranking up the internal resolution to like x8, the anti-aliasing to max, no frameskip, etc., so basically max quality and ONLY Project DIVA 1/2/Extend have an issue. Guess I'll try this one...
