    PPSSPP/Libretro Switch Public Beta by m4xw
    ==========================================

    After a lot of work, I am very happy to share this with all of you.
    Audio & Video support works, many core options cause Issues tho.

    It is mandatory to "Close Content" after changing any Core option and restarting RetroArch, else it will potentially crash, don't close the RetroArch menu!

    Special thanks to hrydgard for everything he has done for the PPSSPP Project.
    If you want to support his work, consider buying PPSSPP Gold https://central.ppsspp.org/buygold even if you don't use it!

    I will PR it once the libretro port is finished, also implemented half of what's needed for a Standalone port ;)
    Source is on my Github, but it's highly WIP and needs a custom RA and a custom ffmpeg, so you should just wait if you want to build it yourself ;)

    Libretro Docs (important informations for this core):
    https://docs.libretro.com/library/ppsspp/
    Official Game Compatibility Tracker (your mileage might vary): https://report.ppsspp.org/games

    GitHub (WIP Switch): https://github.com/m4xw/ppsspp/
    GitHub (Official): https://github.com/hrydgard/ppsspp

    Installation Instructions
    ==========================================

    Drag & Drop the "retroarch" folder to the root of your SD, overwriting any file (it will not touch any options).
    Assets are bundled, so you don't have to bother with that.

    Notes
    ==========================================

    If you are using ANY method of loading RetroArch OTHER than Atmosphere's title redirection feature, DO NOT report issues that you encounter.
    These issues can skew testing and could very well be caused by loading through an unsupported method.

    Video slowdowns are related to missing hardware accelerated decoding (nvdec), it's not a libretro/PPSSPP Issue.
    FMV cut-scenes will be fine.

    Updates
    ==========================================

    Added JIT and JIT Vertex Decoder Support
    - When loading Savestates with JIT, make sure to instantly open the RetroArch Menu again and wait for it to complete loading
    - This is a libretro specific bug (not switch port related) and will be fixed later on


    ==========================================

    -Added Vertex JIT Core option (turning it off fixes some games currently)
    -Added Disable slow Framebuffer effects Core option (Speedhack)
    -Increased Savestate Chunk size to 4MB (speeds up savestate load, ~2sec)
    -Band-Aid for Savestate load + Save (no more opening menu for them to work)
    -Renamed "IR JIT" to "IR Interpreter"
    -Removed Threaded IO Core option (non-functional)
    -Removed Non-Buffered Rendering Core option (non-functional)
    -General system stability improvements to enhance the user's experience.

    No, but you can enable cheats in the core options (at the very bottom, you might need to enable advanced settings in RA first)
    I might finish the standalone port too, like i wrote, half of whats needed for that is done.
    Take a look at the libretro docs.

    These only run good with JIT, so you will need to be a bit more patient.

    IR JIT at max switch clock speed.

    Tekken Dark Res = 52 fps
    Tekken 6 = 41 FPS

    Not bad at all. PPSSPP code bases are really well coded. :)

    Great job tho, you did a huge work on N64, I couldn't have guessed that we could get PSP emulation so quickly, thank you for that

    Hi!
    I open the Retroarch via album and my backups of psp doesn't work.
    I did:
    1- Load core and choose PPSSPP.
    2- Load content and select the game.
