    Is my computer powerful enough for PSP Emu? Here's the specs: Pentium(R) Duel-Core CPU 2.60 GHz
    6.00 GB of RAM. Thanks Tempers!~

    You might be able to get some games, but the more graphically intensive ones will give you low framerates.

    Hm... So example: God of War, Kingdom Hearts, etc. Those won't work? But games like Daxter will?

    I don't know the specifics for different games, but I imagine 2D games would be easier for you. I tried Crisis Core on my computer that has better specs than you, and I can't even get 30 FPS. If you look in the forums for the various PSP emulators, there will probably be some recommended specs for any games you want to play.

    PPSSPP 0.8.1 uses a JIT (just in time) recompiler that has a massive speed boost for games. www.ppsspp.org has a compatibility list that's up to date and system requirements :P

    You need to install the audio codec, but that's all done through the emulator's audio settings. Some games will be more intensive than others, I'd saw the requirements are no worse than DeSmuME 0.99 (which is the faster version, also JIT). What are your system specs?

    I recorded that with no settings tweaking on a Core 2 Quad Q8400 and Radeon HD 5770.

    These recent revisions have really upped the performance of the emulator. My brother's been playing through the PSP version of FFIV, and he hasn't had any real problems other than a few spell effects, and the boss transitions, causing some slowdown.

    Really glad to see this system get some progress on the emulator front.

    I knew that JIT recompilers can do crazy things with speed optimizations, but wow....:blink: That's pretty dang amazing performance on an older CPU.

    Just a little something I want to interject, the compiled emulators from that site can be sketchy at times, so for PPSSPP, you can try the ones on here if you feel wary ;) You don't have to get them from here, but I'll post the link in case :P

    Just uploaded this
    *No Controls only Keyboard so expect bad gameplay*

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Which control would be better with it? PS3's or Xbox360's

    That looks Sweet!~ Question!! When I run God of War it runs fast the first screen, then slows down! What can I do to fix this?!

    Idunno', the only time I've used that emulator was to make that example video. Maybe something about frame rate limiting if it's in the settings.

    B-) Some games still might have issues running at full speed. :P Other games like Final Fantasy I - III, Star Ocean would likely run full speed, but see if the frame skip is set to 0.

    I think frame skipping is set to 0 by default, but I'm not entirely sure. I'll need to check on that :P
