Idea: PSP emu?

Postby hyellow » Fri Aug 28, 2009 5:05 pm

First of all, many great thanks for the creators of this psx emulator for windows mobile.
Altough I have not yet found the ideal settings to achieve playable gaming experience on my xperia, i'd like to say that I've been following the project for several years now, and with every new windows mobile phone, i was trying the emulator again.

But now... my question is, could it be made possible to emulate psp games? I mean, psx is near dead, games are hard to download and games are not that recent anymore plus, maybe it's a good idea to start a fresh and new project.

There is an open source psp emulator, could that be the basis for an windows mobile based emulator.

I know, fpsece hasn't reached the final build yet, but i think that psp emulating will be the bomb.

I actually totally agree. This would be an amazing feat. I think it deserves a fair shake when fpsece is all said and done.

The PSP and PS1 have around the same hardware requirements, no? This would be interesting to see in the very least... sheesh

I guess us mobile gamers are getting greedyy :twisted: :lol:

Thing is though, the PSP is closer to the PS2 in terms of spec than it is a PSone. Can anybody really imagine a working PS2 emulator on a phone? I can't.
I think It'll be a couple of years before any mobile is capable of emulating a console as powerful as PSP or PS2.
That's not saying it wouldn't be cool, I hope I'm proven wrong.

the hardware is getting better and better everyday, for example, snapdragon, wich still is very new, not maxed out yet, but already proven itself with fpsece 0.10. on the other hand, you have nvidia tegra, already found in the zune hd, but also making it's debut in one htc newest phone. also, the cortex a8 found in iphone and few others, also is powerfull with the support for opengl 2.0.
so i my gues was, it would be a great idea tp alreadu brainstorming about, to see if it fits future hardware.

Hey guys its not funny?
Do you know that you said?
The quantity of MHz does not influence on something... I mean it's simply a maximum frequency with which processor works, i.e. quantity of operations.
In PSP it is specialised operations, on which Pocket PC must have about 2.5 MHz.

Guys - ITS IMPOSSIBLE - you must remember that!!!

P.S.: Anyway if you find PSP engine sources we could think up something... :D

I think there will be a N64 emulator before a psp emulator, I remember UltraHLE running on my poor celeron 800Mhz PC years ago.

UltraHLE worked almost perfect on my 400mhz cpu 32mb RAM and a 8mb voodoo2 :)

Voodoo² kicked ass!
I remebmer "Autobahnraser". In the menu-screen 1-2fps(2D). But when I started a race (3D hardware-acclerated), everything works full-speed.
That was great fun. An in contrast to newer graphiccards with my VooDoo² even older games looked better :)

perhaps you should start a project like UltraHLE for PPC ;)

I didn't say it would be easy or even possible, but I kinda liked the idea, for one, never thought would be possible to play psx games on ppc. Hell, psx games (in times there was Bleem!) would't run fairly enough on my p3 1.2ghz, and now fpsece can run on a ppc. But still, it's quite a challenge, but i'm hoping that the first playable beta will be out within two or three years from now.
