The menu looks nice and clean and screenshot looks great with the scanline filter. I love retroarch but the menu system is far from ideal on a portable.
Getting the ROMset now, thanks cpasjuste :)

Edit: One very minor thing, I noticed the vpk isn't marked as safe. I hex edited the eboot.bin, changed 0x80 from 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 2F to 02 00 00 00 00 00 00 2F then repacked/installed and the emulator seems to run fine.

Hi, @cpasjuste, thanks for your amazing work
Can you please add support to analog imput? Games like: Super Hang-On, Outrun, Turbo Outrun, Power Drift and other uses analog then we cant move, only buttons works.
And a minor requestn can you add minor file management? Like press [] to delete a rom, it would make ease to remove incompatible or not wanted clones.

Thanks in advance!!!!

how do i play from ur0 ... ? i changed config but i still could not load roms
What I did was edit the config file ux0:data/pfba/pfba.cfg and changed line 0004 to
Code:
ROMS_PATH0 = "ux0:/data/rom/mame/";
I had already copied roms there in order to play it with retroarch.

edit: I modified it directly from VitaShell, it's quite convenient.

Anyone managed to get CPS 2 games to work? I keep getting the same error "Loading AVSP.KEY..... (NOT FOUND). I tried a bunch of different roms for Alien vs Predator and keep getting the same result. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

So yeah, the unofficial build posted earlier had issues with the analog sticks, but this one DOES work with them, which is great! However, I'm not sure why the right stick scrolls through menus along with the left. Since my right thumbstick has been dead for over a year, I can't use that build with my Vita. It works great with the PSTV, though.

    you may have to check the box that says "stay signed in." psx place used to have a problem like this for random people, including myself. that will prevent being logged out or it did anyway.
