    Okay, then the project is on hold. Fair enough. I do appreciate the time you and Juste have spent on this, for what it's worth.

    Hi @cpasjuste and @rsn8887 there is some possibility of adding support for comand list in figthing games of CPS2 and Neo Geo like the NJ PSP Emus.

    And add support for cheats like fba4droid and similar.

    It has been a while since there is an update, we hope that it can improve speed in some games such as data east and others.

    Greetings and thanks for your work friends.

    Sorry for my english I speak spanish.

    Has anybody tested input lag of PFBA compared to retroarch, on PSTV and VIta? Is it similar to Retroarch or larger? I don't have a test setup (fast camera etc.) to measure input lag, but I would be interested.

    For example, one could test time between button press and punch animation in KOF. Test it in Retroarch and in PFBA to see any difference. I think Retroarch is very well optimized for minimum input lag. I am not so sure how PFBA compares.

    The problem is I am trying to judge it subjectively without measurement, checking how it "feels." I am not sure if there really is a difference or if my brain is playing tricks on me.

    i've tried only pfba (not retroarch) on my pstv. i found the input lag very annoying (i used a dualshock 4 in wireless mode) and i can confirm that games are quite unplayable in wireless mode. that's why i'm waiting for a fix of this emulator which can also increase the emulation speed of some other games. only neogeo and capcom systems are well emulated. other "game systems", tipically of mame, are running too slow (i tried altered beast, crime fighters 2, joe & mac caveman ninja... all unplayable).

    Why does my vita seem to be blocked on left or right joypad direction while in Pfba ? I've get to make it work like charm on last blade 2 and shocktro but even in game my control are messed up.

    If official FBA does not support SNES games, then will not on PFBA.

    Fba was made to be an arcade emulator and the console cores are more of an afterthought. Therefore I would recommend using Retroarch for the consoles. The snes9x 2005 core works quite well on Retroarch Vita.

    I forgot to mention but v1.15 appears as a new separate bubble even when updating. The old bubble can be deleted.

    Earlier Post #2

    So Im after getting PFBA to recognise MSX, PCE, Coleco, Game Gear, Megadrive, Master System and SG1000 but the roms either dont work or cause an appcrash (C2-12828-1).

    Is this normal?

    EDIT:

    Ah. WIll try it out now. Thanks!

    PFBA does more than CPS1/2/3, in regards to arcade.

    And as of 1.15 posted above it does some console emulation too which I won't be using but it's nice to have all the roms included in the reference set working (for the most part). :)
