    /retroarch/cores/system/PPSSPP is indeed the default path for Switch.
    It's also already bundled in the release 7z.

    @m4xw thanks a lot for the awesome ppsspp switch version & i look forward to future updates for it :)

    btw did you also make pcsx rearmed libretro libnx ? if so do you have any idea how i can make Breakout for PS1 run on it as it crashes the console every time i try to run it,i have tried EU,US & even Russian version from some russian forum all with the same result. i'm huge breakout & space invaders fan & would really appreciate if you can help me get Breakout working on switch.

    Yea i did.
    Starting via album? Some PSX games need more ram.
    Otherwise i will need a crash report + detailed reproduction steps.

    Found a control problem with BBS? using the analogue up or down changes command decks. I thought that was DPad only?

    works 100% for me. replace fonts for text fix in menus and character dialogue boxes (search this thread if you need to find out how.) FMVs play beautifully on the patreon build i have, dunno about public.

    Is there a known problem with saveGAMES (not states?) In Crisis Core using the in-game save menu, I can save fine in an empty slot, however I cannot overwrite existing saves, nor can I delete saves.

    I’m trying to save a bit of space by compressing my PSP games. Is there a better format than .cso? And do all compression apps compress the same?

    There is not a better format than .cso. AFAIK they all compress the same.

    How does bbs play? I suppose it's not full speed, but, is it playable?

    I'm on fat32. I'm assuming all the crisis core saves are contained in a single .srm anyway so it would be odd of a filesystem-level error was causing this.

    Edit: I can see now that PPSSPP seems to use more like a virtual memory card than individual srm files, with a separate folder for each slot. Not sure what to do with that however.

    Change the controls to RetroPad w/ Analog and disable D-Pad emulation. You probably also need to turn up the sensitivity a bit (~1.5 ish)

    I have no clue why Joystick -> DPad emulation is the default on the switch.

    Not really. maxcso does a generally better job than the original CSO compression tools, and since PPSSPP doesn't have CFW limitations you can add --block=16384 to use larger blocks (compresses better generally) and add --use-zopfli (this is an alternative compression program made by google specifically to compress certain android components) if you're patient and want another 1-2% shaved off. This is a console tool, by the way.

    I wish there was some kind of LZMA-based compressed ISO format (deflate is not nearly as good nowadays), but I digress.

    Incorrect. There's more than one implementation of the deflate algorithm out there, which is what CSO uses. 7-Zip's implementation produces better compression than zlib (the de-facto standard), and zopfli produces better compression than all the other implementations (at an extreme compression time trade-off)

    This is what I thought!


    Thank you, took me a bit to get my head round it but I've got it running now. With the settings you suggested it's a bit slower but that'll be totally worth it even if I only shave a % of lol, thanks again!

    Edit: for anyone interested using what chaoskagami said I compressed Ys seven,

    ISO - 728mb
    CSO (compressed with ciso-xp) - 461mb
    CSO (compressed with maxcso) - 443mb and took approximately 2 hours

    Aside from the time consuming, there’s any emulation, performance, compatibility issue? My SD is getting full quickly so I’m interested in trying to optimize the game sizes.
