Game on

With PPSSPP emulator you can play PSP games in HD, customize on-screen controls, save and restore game states and continue from where you left off by syncing saves from your real PSP.

Options include

Buffered rendering (the PSP can render to any location in its VRAM and use as either the scanout buffer or textures). Many games use this to implement special effects, or simply to implement 30fps (you need to show the same buffer twice).

Hardware Transform: uses vertex shaders to do T&L on the GPU instead of doing it in software on the CPU. Faster performance depending of the GPU.

Linear Filtering: a simple filter that smooths the picture. Basically forces bilinear filtering on all graphics. May cause artifacts but also smooth out HUD and 2D.

Simple 2x SSAA / doesn't exist on SDL version: a simple Super Sampling Anti Aliasing 2x algorithm. Reduces aliasing from picture, needs a relative powerful GPU, especially on higher resolutions. Disable if you're having performance problems. Requires Buffered Rendering.

Vertex Cache: an optimization, that makes things faster and in turn might miss some changes in geometry - though PPSSPP do it best to make it reliable there are some edge cases it can miss. Deactivate if you see strange graphical glitches.

Frameskip / Frameskip (beta) *only appears on in-game settings*: activates frameskipping, may or may not give you a better performance. For now, it somewhat negates the Buffered Rendering option, so you may see graphical artefacts and/or screen flickering even with Buffered Rendering on.

Use Media Engine: all it does is control whether HLE functions return -1 or attempt to work. If the game is not calling sceMpeg functions, the option shouldn't have any affect.

Some games may hang with this option off, others may hang with this option on, your mileage will vary.

Fast Memory (dynarec, unstable) / Fastmem (may be unstable): simply assumes that all memory accesses the game does are valid, and thus skips some checks, gaining a bit of speed.

Ignore illegal reads/writes / doesn't exist on SDL version: debug feature, can be ignored.

Reviews From google play store

This is probably the most optimized emulator ive ever used. I can play all games on 4-5x default resolution with AA and texture upscaling. The menu looks great. It runs by far way more flawlessly than other graphically similar games on other emulators like dolphin (i love dolphin, its just so unoptimized mobile). Moto Z2 force here with snapdragon 835, had 0 issues with god of war, kingdom hearts birth by sleep, etc

Almost Perfect! It ran every game so far flawlessly and let me have custom settings for each individual game. You have so much control over the emulation settings. My only problem are the touch controls. Being able to save and load your own touch control layouts would be very helpful as some touch layouts feel more comfortable with certain games.

the emulator can't play spider man 3. how is those is when i tap de spider man3 game it runs the introduction of the game (spider man and all it's related characters...............bla bla bla). that's were it stops.. it will be showing me only the introduction of the game why is that? just downloaded spider man 3 with 1.22GB, i don't want my GB to be wast. is there any setting that i need to enable or disable for it to play!? i need help.!!!

Very good emulator considering it offers the app for free without annoying ads. Would appreciate if something can be done about better rendering since I can play heavy graphic games on my phone but have to settle for lower quality settings for emulators. I understand thats just how emulators work but who knows, maybe you can fix it.

I really like this emulator because it let's me play games I played from my childhood. But the only problem I have with this app is that some games don't work and keep lagging, such as 'Darkstalkers: Chronicle the Chaos Tower' is lagging and messing up. And if the creators or the workers of the ppsspp company please fix 'Darkstalkers: Chronicle the Chaos Tower and other games please. Thank you.

I'm having some problems with a game called Riviera The promised land. The level with all the tombstone seems to habe either a bug or a problem. I'm not sure if its the emulator or the rom but I haven't been able to progress for like 2 years now. Please fix this if you are able, thank you.

Would want to rate this five stars,but I can't load a savestate of Persona 1. It says ''Savestate is for an older version of PPSSPP!'' and I have to now redo it until I get to that point. Edit : I got to SEBEC so...My rating is now 5 stars. Edit 2 : Now my oldest savestate of P3P is failing to load! The message I got was "Failed to load savestate".

Thank's Dev, finally you updated this app. I've been waiting for too long. For this update I think this emulator is very fast right now, but I got one problem here. When I was play Tactics Ogre and Dragon Ball Shin Budokai: Another Road there a small problem is: 1). Tactics Ogre is become very lag in this version emulator and when I play in your previous version emulator Tactics Ogre is very smooth. 2). Dragon Ball SB: AN I've got glitches small black screen in bottom screen when I'm playing it

Download one file and have it not work is a coincidence, but many more times than that and we have a problem. A simple game like Patapon wasnt registered as a PsP game for whatever reason. Not sure whats happening, but this isnt qorking for me at all.

welp, i recomended using an highend phone for this emu, inorder to run any type of psp game smoothly no lag. but for my phone with min spec its still palyable at 40fps (star wars battlefront2)

Works good in my Huawei Y7 Pro 2019 👍 i played tekken 6 and so far the gameplay turned out well but there are times when the graphics get a bit shaky in the practice mode if the usage gets prolonged but there are no lags at all. I recommend using this app if your device has a 3gb ram and above and also a high amount of ghz and core. All the best for the developers of this app.

Its a really great emulator. But the only thing im worried about is that you need a better phone for smoother graphics. The settings is not helping to my other games except for Metal gear solid peace walker. But still, the best emulator for psp thanks man.

Shortly after updating the app i got this: "The native part of PPSSPP for ABI armeabi-v7a is missing. would you like to download an official build?". i mean man. what kind of update is this. edit: looks like i found the problem. the app was originally moved to my external storage before the update. looks like, after the update it stayed that way and has incurred the error. But, when i tried moving it into my internal storage it began working again btw thank you dev for your immediate response.

Guys, it's an emulator, you need to find your own game ISOs to be able to play. The developer couldn't have provided them for copyright reasons. This works awesome as long as you know how. Huge thanks to developers!

I Love This Emulator! NHL 07 Works flawlessly with a few bugs of course but still emulator works real good on my SM-T380 a.k.a Samsung Galaxy Tab A 2017 I would love to donate but I don't have Google play credits sooo Keep Up The Good Work! also can you please fix the frame skip cause when I use it when a PSP game lags it like goes frame by frame which makes it sound choppy GO LEAFS GO!

please help me with Harvest Moon Boy & Girl and Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, they keep crashing after 3 moves. I really love this app because it brings back my precious games in ancient PSP tech

SWITCHED TO OPEN GL BACKEND- FIXED MY ISSUES. New Update introduced a problem with the Square, Triangle, Circle and X buttons. The touch input areas for the four buttons are misaligned to the left. The touch area worked perfectly in the center of each button before the update. I am not the only one to have this problem after reading comments. Seems like the screen isnt properly aligning. resolution stretches past edge on note 9. Thanks for a great app!

now i can't play fat princess because of the update, it runs very slow, please fix. for now I'll use the older version [UPDATE] I tried playing other games on the newest version and it stutter occasionally, about twice or thrice every hour, its a very bad thing when playing patapon since I'm getting lost on the beat, I thought I can give it a try but I cant play properly on the newest version, on the previous version nothing seems wrong and it runs very smooth, I hope you can fix it

I just gotta say that playing crisis core, a psp game, on my phone, in VR with my GearVR, with an xbox controller at 4x original resolution is an experience I never thought possible a few years ago. And it's absolutely awesome, thanks a lot guys.

Love it! It performs greatly well on most games now. But one big problem is that the silent hill shattered memories doesn't run properly or satisfactorily. I've tried tons of types of settings, but it just wont work. Please fix it. This game was the only reason I installed pppspp.
