    Just letting everyone know there is an update in the market. I haven't played around with it yet so let's post our findings
     

    Advertisement

  2. Ever since the update my list of PSX images went blank. All I see is a ROM Buddy advertisement in the list, now. :/ The images are still on my SD card and I can see them through the file manager, but even clicking on them from there doesn't work anymore, the prompt shows there's no apps available for running the file.

    Am I the only one with this problem?

    Ok updated to 1.3 and looks like it's broken. Some games no longer start, like FF9. others still work but are definitely slower like FF7 and RE2

    wish i didn't update. now i'm stuck with this version and i have to wait for the next one. And considering the time from 1.1 to 1.3, which was around 2months i think.. :(

    Both 1.2 and 1.3 are BIG steps back for me:

    1. All games are slower
    2. Hot Shots Golf 2 does not work now
    3. Crash Racing graphics messed up and unplayable

    Same for all games I tried that play good on 1.1. All slower, some have messed up graphics and others do not work past menus. Failed update.

    It seems like the dev tried to make one or two games work better (Final Fantasy games?), but made most others play bad now. I reverted back to 1.1, since FAR better than the two updates. No comparison for any game I tried.

    Can't you just revert back to 1.1?
     
  9. Actually the Final Fantasy games are slow as hell, too...

    As for what I mentioned before, the blank file list, that only seems to be the case in 1.2.

    While I agree that some game seem to be broken after the update:

    Grand Tourismo 2: corrupt car graphic
    War Craft 2: Game stuck on mission loading menu

    Other game seem to have gone from broken to working also:

    X-Com UFO: no longer randomly freezes every 2 minute :)
    Diablo: Dungeon graphic no longer glitches.

    Also for a few games like GT2 and FF7, there is no longer static sound in the in game music.

    So there is some improvement to the update. Hope the developer will fix the speed slow down and broken game issue soon.

    PS: anyone try metal gear solid yet after the update?

    Geez. It was 1.3 2 days ago. 1.4 yesterday. Now 1.5. I'll just go read the comments to see how slow THIS update is :p

    Would love to see Symphony of the Night (a 2D side scroller....) running at full speed. Especially on a phone with a beastly GPU like the Epic.

    Sweet guys, 1.5 fixes all the slowdowns

    Edit: "Ruunning into performance issues with psx4droid v1.5? Instead of using old version's save states, load the game fresh or from a memory card."

    Nope. Symphony of the night still runs REAAAAALLY slow on the fastest android phone to date. At a few points, it seems to go into super speed. I don't see it being anywhere close to a PSX emulator on PC any time soon.

    OK
    How do you load cheats in this emulator? Is that possible? I don't want to spend earned JP in FFTACTICS...

    Much too far from the waves
    Im interested in chrono cross and JUST chrono cross. I would love to have a couple other games but if that one works, you might as well kiss my battery life and normal life goodbye.

    I know a while back (About 3 or 4 months ago) It was working but the sound was kinda screwy and somethings didnt work. Does anyone know if this emulator is a bit more solid? I would be more than willing to fork over the cash if it works real well.
