Default PPSSPP Emulator Settings For Constant 30/60fps


PPSSPP Emulator Settings

I'm going to use this thread to show you guys/gals my settings for the PPSSPP Emulator, setup for each individual game, all with screenshots provided as proof that these settings work! These settings are have all been tested with iPhone 5!

The current build of PPSSPP is fast approaching version 1.0 (current build v0.9.8) and the results are indeed excellent, offering many features like MFI controller support with button mapping, iphone 5 support (widescreen), multithread support (dual core+), FXAA antialiasing, anisotropic filtering (x16), cheats supported, DLC support, plus many more!

They all run from fair to great, but like most emulators, some games require a different setup for the emulator to run these games at 30-60fps. Visit PPSSPP: PSP emulator for Android, iOS, Windows, Linux, MacOSX, Blackberry, Symbian (official) to download the emulator (must be jailbroken). Their forum is very active and full of information!

Personally I use the jailbreak tweak, Controllers4all which is available from Cydia (ps3 pad works amazingly well) and turn off the button overlay

Most of the PSP's top titles have been optimised and are running amazing well (iphone 5 tested). I've personally tried and tested many games, below is a short list of the ones I've tried so-far...

The screenshots show it running at only 15fps, this is a bug with the built-in counter. Dissidia runs at 30fps until there is a lot going on the screen, then you will see fps drops

MHP2G for iOS has released in Japan App Store with many improvements.
So for this game there is no need to emulate.

I use Monster Hunter 3rd HD Ver. It's the PS3 version!! To get the non HD version to work you need the decrypted PAUTH files

I already know this but it is in Japanese and may take awhile to come to the West... I've also translated what I can, but it's still unplayable, for me at least!

With this emulation you can play it today!!! Fully translated and runs flawlessly, also the UI is slightly better on this emulation the items are displayed to the right rather than the center giving you a better view Also ALL the DLC can be added as well as all the cheats if you choose to

Hey I'm thinking of getting a ps3 pad to use with my iPad. How do you pair a pad with your iPad for controllersforall. My computer doesn't have Bluetooth. So I hope I can plug the controller and my iPad to the computer and pair them that way.

Unfortunately I don't have an iPhone4S anymore to test for you... But in saying that, turning off multithreaded in the ppsspp emulator will make the emulator use only one core, which kind of turns my phone into a 4S. With this setting disabled I still get a constant 30fps

Yes that's the only way you can pair your PS3 controller, via a USB lead to a PC or laptop... You'll need to download a program called sixaxisPairTool to be able to pair your PS3 controller, this only has to be done once! Visit this site to download SixAxisPairTool also with pairing instructions
