This is PPSSPP, the PSP Emulator, ported to the OpenPandora, available on the repo

Graphics are hardware accelerated with GLES2

A JIT on ARM is include starting build 03.

Notes that this is an app targeted to Android market, with touch devices. So GUI is touch oriented (click and drag to move, stay click to validate).

Controls are mapped like this:
Code:
Dpad => Dpad


  Y             /\

A   B =>     [ ]  ( )

  X             ><


Start => Start
Select => Select

Space => Menu
Backspace => Back
There is a Wiki here: http://wiki.ppsspp.org/index.php?title=Game_Compatibility

And a Pandora Wiki Compatibility here: http://pandorawiki.org/PPSSPP_Compatibility_List

Complete Source for build 01 here: ppsspp-pandora.tar.gz

Nice PtitSeb! Thanks. 

Jit for Arm? Isn't it ported yet or isn't it developed yet?

For the JIT for ARM, it is not developped yet. Planned for v0.6 according to the Website.

About nubs, yes, it is possible. I have disabled them in the first build (was fighting with SDL hangs), but I can try to anable them for future build, or do a build for that if there is demand for that.

PS: I had hangs with SDL when I SDL_Init with SDL_INIT_AUDIO (plus SDL_INIT_VIDEO | SDL_INIT_JOYSTICK). So I just left the Init video, and remove (comented) all Joystick code. It seems that the Init Audio cause the Hangs. The sound works even if not initialised properly...

From your recording, it's seems faster, but I'm glad you proved it  :)  .

I guess we will have some more nice videos soon  :p  !

I've just tried Tales of Eternia... It looks really good... Not playable yet but I compared with the windows version of the emulator and it looks promising!!

A Game which would be also Great to run is "Metal Slug Anthology"

But as i have a PSP and a PSVITA for the Comerziall Games, this Emulator will be used for the PSP Homebrew, just like the new DS Emulator (Expekt from Korg DS 20 Synthesyser DS Game)

Great port, thangs

Mind testing Ultimate Ghosts n Goblins?  Thanks!
Just tested it... I get a memory check screen and then black screen. Tested on the windows version as well, I get the same thing but I got lucky pushing buttons and I ended up playing. Not that smooth and big graphic bugs...


The black screen thing on the menu seems to be common if you look at the compatibility list.

I have made some test, to see the performances of the Emu.

I tried, with sound:

* The Cube demo.=> Full speed, that's good.

* Pocket Bobble Puzzle => Work great, but not Full Speed, something like 75%  => *EDIT* This one I'm not sure, I find it almost good, but still a bit slow.

* MotoGP => Works ok, but it slow. Between 20% speed to 50% (when you are alone). => *EDIT* My perception of slowness is not good, expect more like 10% of real speed.

* Tales of Eternia => Works good. Speed is 75% more or less. => *EDIT*, in fact, it is more like 30% of speed, so that lower also the other number.

I tried but not working (cross checked with Windows version) :

* Flatout Head => black screen

* God of War - Ghost of Sparta => black screen

* Metal Slug => black screen

* Patapon 3 =>  start, show some dialog that vanish before you can read them... After a while, you're stuck.

* Pixeljunk Monters Deluxe => black screen

* Split Second Velocity => Cyan screen.

* Tron Evolution => start, menu are navigable, but cannot get ingame.

* Ridge Racer 2 => Works ok, Camera problem (the initial camera points rear instead of forward). => but hang on my Pandora (works ok on Windows).

 

 

*EDIT* => Revise my numbers based on the Youtube video

How much overclock was used in your tests?

ptitSeb, are those real speed numbers (like from a display in the emulator) or just your estimations? I've seen some extremely poor guesses before. I find it startling that Tales of Eternia would be so much faster than in the Android version. You can get a speed comparison directly, compare here:

https://www.youtube.com/embed/N85vQVSK710?feature=oembed
At 4:18 to 4:25

One is 7 seconds, the other is 28 seconds. That means it's running at only 25% speed. And this is with a faster SoC (DM3730) at a higher clock speed (1.2GHz) so unless Android is massively crippling performance I don't believe your 75% number, although it's possible it's much faster in the opening credits or title screen. Playing the scripted opening would not be an obvious candidate for a high CPU load, but who knows.

I didn't find a let's play for the PSP version but I'm assuming that the timing is the same or close enough.
