PPSSPP version 1.12 out now, adds support for Android 12, fixes graphical glitches, improves multiplayer

PPSSPP-1.0-750x400.jpg

PPSSPP has just gotten a new update that adds a ton of new fixes and improvements. Version 1.12 of the PSP emulator is available to download, bringing with it support for Android 12's scoped storage, along with various optimizations for other platforms. A handful of games also now run without issue on PPSSPP, including NBA Live 08, Ape Academy 2, and more. Lots of audio and graphical improvements were also made, with reverb volume, being able to switch to new audio devices without having to close the emulator, and getting rid of image artifacting in certain games.

There are some new UI options as well, which lets you see how much memory you're using, an undo button for loading a savestate, and a new analog stick mapping menu. For those interested in adhoc play, PPSSPP 1.12 features some improvements on that front, too. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker now works and can correctly detect the right source port, response time for online play is better across the board, the emulator no longer crashes when you leave a multiplayer room in-game, and plenty more, which can be seen in the full changelog.

Give em a little bit to build the file for all of the other platforms.

I bought the gold version on google play, as well as the drastic (even though I'm a beta tester), epsxe, fpse, real3DOplayer, Nostalgia and the next on my shopping list will be francisco's Mupen64 plus fz, which is wonderful, including I created for him a scanline layer.

I wonder if they will ever let you use a filter to make the Valkyria CHronicles games look like they do on the home consoles.

Nooooooooo they spoiled the ppsspp mapper which was perfect, who had this idea???? I updated to 1.12 and my xbox 360 controller on my android tv box which was all set to ppsspp 1.11.3 and working perfect, then I had to remove the 1.12 I bought and go back to the previous version 1.11.3 because of a smart that it is resolved to play with the pitiful mapper. We want to collaborate by buying the gold version but this makes it more complicated.
