    Thank you for the new pfba with 0.2.97.42 upgrade rom set !
    Console games works quite well, except sometimes you get a crash when you want to change game. Coleco still doesn't work.

    Sadly games like outrun or space harrier now have a problem with the direction. Left go right and right go left, and sometimes right and left just go right... Hope for a fix in the next update.

    fine work on this interface awesome if you ask me. However I have two questions: How do you edit the game list to add games to the list, is that automatic if the game is in the roms folder, or is it like Hyperspin where there is a text file, and small db to edit? And, I have the .39 romset however only 9 roms actually work. Most state they are missing a key file or several, or it's missing some graphics file. How does one fix this issue? I'm not that familiar with how or what PFBA is using to run the roms, I'm assuming some recompiled version of MAME, and other emulators.. so I'm guessing bios files might be required.

    From what system(s) are the roms you are trying to run, on?

    I'm using .39 romset as well and apart from some of the newer supported systems in 1.15, like coleco, msx sg1000 etc, i haven't had any issues playing my usual CPS1/2 & Neo Geo roms.

    I don't think there is a re-scan roms option in the app. It's automatic. From my experience if the roms are in the correct directory, they will be recognised when PFBA boots up.

    Also, you can add rom directories here:

    I just want to say that Cpasjuste has been making a LOT of changes recently on github he has been working very hard. It is a big work-in-progress and takes time. I bet the next release when all his changes are finished will be awesome.

    I stopped making changes to the old code so Cpasjuste can finish his major work on the new code first.

    I was finally able to merge all the changes to master, so here is a new release. While i tested it a lot, there may be some new bugs i didn't spot yet, which will be fixed with time.
    Thanks to all the support, and thanks to @rsn8887 for the help.

    Download: https://github.com/Cpasjuste/pfba/releases
    • pfba-1.51_vita.vpk
      • PFBA: some ui adjustment
      • PFBA: fix 4/3 aspect ratio
      • NX: add audio (not perfect, but mostly ok)
      • NX: many fixes and improvements
      • PSP2: lot of ui changes
      • PSP2: fixed shaders (was not properly scaling, linear filter and sharp+scan shader is now perfect)

    @cpasjuste, Thank you, thank you and thank you, I'll install it right now, if I see errors I'll let you know. Thanks to @rsn8887 who has also worked hard in this emulator. Very many thanks to both of you.
    :hrth::):yaypsp::hrth:

    Known errors are:
    Operation wolf: the analogue the peephole goes crazy.
    1942:, the screen change does not correspond to the controls, they are reversed.
    R-type: is still not flowing ...
    Arkanoid does not work the stick, nor the crosshead.
    steering wheel goes perfect 1.07 pfba vita.
    Bug in the interface, When leaving a rom, the word GO of the options disappear and they are replaced by the icons of the controls.
    The vertical games are not autoconfigured.

    More know errors

    Monsters Maulers And Gaiapolis does not work.

    B Rap Boys has a particular error.

    @rsn8887

    We need a different combo to start + select, maybe touch menĂº or another combo.

    Nice release. Glad you are still supporting the ps vita despite the nintendo switch recently being hacked.

    it would be possible to add dipswitches to all the games because they only have neo geo, capcom and pgm and toaplan games, data east, etc are in hardest by default.

    It does not work for me to change the combo to launch the menu, it could be tactile like the two front corners.

    Greetings friends

    Wow this is a great new release. Thanks @cpasjuste. The preview images display much faster, and the menu looks much better. Navigation of the menu is also much faster (scrolling by pages etc.). Everything looks much more modern.

    Here are some screenshots of the new menu style:

    The preview images load instantly now!


    @cpasjuste: I just made a small PR just to add sharp-bilinear-simple shader back into libcross2d, maybe you can take a look when you have time. I wrote a little article here why that particular shader is great: https://github.com/rsn8887/Sharp-Bilinear-Shaders/blob/master/README.md

    @cpasjuste: is the rendering code in PFBA fully optimized? Do you think it is possible to improve performance in more demanding games (e.g. CPS3, Taito F3 and PGM)?

    Yes, it is :/ Rendering is not really a problem on the vita (GPU).
