    No. If the game works, it works.

    The same impact as any other CSO file for decompression. Which is to say, a small impact on CPU but less of a disk hit.

    PPSSPP is 100% compatible with these options. I'm however pretty sure the inferno driver on PSP CFW is limited to 2048 blocks, so if you're planning to use a real PSP or Vita to play these CSO files, they probably won't work there.

    Good morning everyone!
    i'm really amazed by the stuff you, m4xw, do for us and make me not regretting buying a switch.
    So i tested some games the other day and wanted to share my experiences with the latest build
    1. Ace Combat - Skies of Deception: flawless
    2. Syphon Filter - Logans Shadow: a tid slow when engaging multiple enemies, but still playable
    3. Crisis Core - flawless
    4. Jak and Daxter - Lost Frontier: Crashes after intro movie when zooming in to Jak
    5. S.O.C.O.M. Fireteam Bravo 2: Blackscreen
    6. Tenchu - Shadow Assassins: flawless
    7. GTA Chinatown Wars: minor stutter. Not a big deal for some, but for me it's annoying
    8. Peace Walker: As mentioned before a few times, works like a charm even with fps cheat (haven't tested 60fps so far, but 30fps enhances that game so much)
    9. Ridge Racer 2: flawless
    10. Burnout Dominator: Menu text is screwed, but game works. Fps are a bit slow (but that might be a game issue, haven't tried the fps cheats yet)

    All of the above was tested with and without vertex cache. Some might need it, for some you better turn it off (can't remember which one needs vertex and which not)

    I use the 540 res and fxaa as a shader. And it's the latest public version i'm using.
    Now i was just curious:
    Someone earlier reported that Socom works flawlessly.
    There's no way i can manage to get that game working, so maybe there's a trick i don't know? I'm using the EUR version of that game and even tried different EUR isos...

    Another question that just came to my mind:
    I'm a patreon but i'm not connected to discord. Do i miss much with waiting for patreon updates or is the public version i'm using currently the latest one?

    Regards

    @m4xw
    Please if possible and not to much work, make it so actual homebrew can be placed in a PSP/GAMES/Homebrewhere Folders as it makes a huge mess placing them on Root of SD..

    Why would it need to load them from the root of your SD?
    Can't you just select them in the filebrowser?

    Loaded the PPSSPP core first?

    I have this behavior, if I load pbps without loading into the PPSSPP core first. (Not tested on homebrew pbps.)

    For you? ;) I actually took your tip, and loaded up bookr.pbp from root prior to posting the last reply. So thank you for saving me time. :) I didnt test it from other locations, and was interested in if this indeed was an issue. Now it seems that way, so thank you for your response. :)

    I was trying out CSOs days ago. That time it took for you is absurd. I'll find the name of what I use and post, along with some examples. Like Angry Birds going from 150mb+ to around 20mb or whatever and still playing. Also a 1.5gig game to 900mb+ and it plays.

    I have PSP homebrew on my Switch. Create a folder for them inside of /switch and put the folders in there. No need to have them on the root or scattered. Start PPSSPP then the EBOOT {which I recommend you rename to the app's name}. Also, they can be forwarded with Nro2Nsp.

    Angry birds is not 150GB (150000MB is 150GB.) Aside from that, some games in particular are extremely compressible and others are not due to games already using compression or using encryption. The time taken is indeed absurd; as I said, zopfli is an extreme compression time tradeoff for an extra percent or two, and there isn't currently any deflate-based compressor that beats its ratios no matter how hard you may look. But for non-compressible data you will get diminishing returns on any compressor.

    The person I provided that answer to wanted to save every possible byte. maxcso is much much faster when you don't use zopfli, and still generally produces better ratios. To be honest, if your goal is to compress without waiting days then zopfli is a poor choice.
