Also, I need to send your pandora battery back to you. If I stick in a couple of 8gig SDHC memory cards would you be so kind as to put on a couple of PSOne/PSP ISOs you have lying around?

cheers!!

No noticable speed increase. But I haven't done any deep timing or testing, just noting playback quality of in game cut scenes.

Zetr0, did you ever get Dungeon Master running on a PSP Atari emulator? The thought of a portable DM makes me feel giddy. :)

Slightly off topic - if (in theory, of course) you had hundreds of ROMS for an emulator, is there a quick way to scroll through them all? Again in theory, i could have a game gear/master system emulator (or snes) with about 1000 roms - it would take ages to scroll through to S, or R. Can I just create new folder in roms, such as A-D, E-J, J-P etc??

Also (1) - Can anyone recommend a decent PC Engine emulator for PSP? There seems to be a couple out there.

Also (2) - does anyone have the CPS1/CPS2/MVS emualtor working on PSP?

Depends on the emulator.
Most will scroll 1 game at a time if you push Up or Down.
Several emulators jump several games (cant remember how many exactly) if you push Left or Right.
You can easily get from a to z (even with a 1000 roms) in a couple of seconds.

I'd like to know this too. Used to use PCEP on a much older firmware, but now I'm on 5.00m33, that no longer works. What are people using these days?

By the way, I've installed Hugo as my PC Engine emulator and it seems to work fine.

Regarding the ROMS - I have my Speccy, SNES, C64, and Megadrive emulators in lettered folders, plus a Favourites folder for the more commonly used titles.

1) Hm dunno.
2) I'm doing some investigation into this, will post results inthis thread.

@CJ

My friend, its always good to get a couple of reviews in, carry on your research, after all you have a PSP1000 model - enjoy your research I look forward to reading it.

You will find what you seek here (MVSPSP) and here (CPS2PSP), CPS1PSP / PicoDrive / Snes9xTYL will be up later this evening.

If i get time, I will put Fuse and PSPVice as well.

Right, finally got my CR-5400. Now, where's the best place for Micro SD cards? The 16GB ones on play.com are all class 2. Am I right in saying the class only affects transfer speeds? ie - the time it takes to copy stuff onto them from my PC? Or does it affect performance too?

Cheers ... :)

Remember to NOT use Windows to format your SDHC Cards.
I linked to a site with the proper tool on, so search back through this thread to find it.

It makes a world of difference to file access/load speeds. :wink:

I was under the impression that using the PSP itself is the preferred method of formatting. Is that not the case?
