    Soywiz's PSP Emulator for Windows, PspEmu, has been updated to v 20120407 r256. The emulator is written in C# 4.0, and is starting to show some major promise! Games are starting to boot up, and more homebrew is running.

    I'm eagerly awaiting the time when we'll be able to emulate PSN functionality; then my army of PSP2 characters will take over!

    This is nice and all, but isn't JPCSP a little more developed? I believe it runs quite a few commercial games...better than CPCSP IIRC.

    I'd imagine the goal is to create something that doesn't rely on Java (and the overhead it requires) getting in the way of emulating something as powerful as the PSP.

    definitely jpcsp is better but java causes many issues exactly as lily is saying and i am talking not through theory but using jpcsp myself. the ps2 and wii emus run faster and the dev himself has said there are some restrictions to java.
    i just am impressed by how reverse engineering works to make emus work. thats how emu's are made?

    I hope that Ultra Ghouls n Ghosts is fully playable someday, on an emu, that is.

    Ah I see. I was surprised to hear how much further the Java version got TBH, didn't think much would come out of it when the first few builds were released.

    Well, you're running an emulator in an emulator (possibly emulating that as well too), so it isn't optimal for this stuff AT ALL. Not saying that java is bad or anything, it has its quirks, but it can get a little bit ridiculous if you think about the mechanics behind it.

    Well, it says this emu is coded in C#, which is also an interpreted language like Java so they're both pretty much equal when it comes to efficiency. And Java works well on all OS's, while C# only works properly on Windows (Mono is a pain in the ***)

    But it's nice to see progress coming along in emulating newer consoles :)
    It makes me want a 3DS emulator too. But I know, it'll be a long time until it happens :(

    Hello Dirbaio... I recently discovered the amazing world of NSMB hacking and then found NSMBHD, and then i saw you're the manager there. Good site. I'm thinking about registrating there as i am hacking NSMB myself. So maybe we'll see each other over there too.

    Anyway, sorry for the OFFTOPIC
