- most games I tried run without too many errors (except for sound being messy a lot of the time & creating a working image can be tricky)
- games run a lot faster than with PSX4Droid
- a lot of options to set
- still a lot of work to be done yet
- no documentation about the menus and emulation options + no help to tell you how to get a game working (having to restart a game after loading the rom is vital yet isn't mentioned anywhere and isn't all that logical)
- the emulator is EXTREMELY picky about the image files - a bad image file nearly always crashes the emulator or makes it be unresponsive (quitting & restarting no longer work)
- the settings don't properly save and it's very confusing as well. Some save, some reset every time you open the app (like the controls, the screen size), some are never saved no matter whether you save settings as default or not (like the overlay - I can turn it off 100 times and it will always turn it back on). It makes for a very messy and confusing experience - please streamline this and make it more logical and user-friendly: let you save ALL settings, let the emulator remember all settings when you leave, let you save game-specific settings, etc.
- still pretty unstable when you change settings
For me, the wonky settings & instability are my main annoyance though because it makes testing different settings to see which work a nightmare. Still, this should be fixable and then this emulator will really be worth using.
Once you get everything figured out it stops frustrating you. There's a high bar for entry if you want to make games run smooth but it's worth it.
I'm playing a lot of games at full speed and I find it really enjoyable. Although I wish the GUI was similar to Gameboid/SNESoid.
From what I've heard, the next version is going to be awesome.
