PSP emulator PPSSPP has a big new release out

Remember the PSP? The classic Sony handheld lives on thanks to open source with the PPSSPP emulator.

Just today, June 27, they tagged the 1.10.0 release on GitHub and it looks like it's absolutely crammed full of goodies. The first update since October 2019 too so there's going to be plenty of fixes included for those of you wanting to play some classic PSP games on modern platforms.

Some highlights from 1.10.0:

  • Performance improvements and improved game loading speed
  • Graphics and compatibility fixes
  • SDL audio fixes
  • Ghost in the Shell graphics fixed
  • Raspberry Pi 4 EGL crash fixed
  • Added simple multiplayer chat
  • More advanced postprocessing (multipass, parameters)
  • Camera supported on Windows, Linux and Mac
  • SDL mouse support, Qt menu upgrades
  • Fixed fullscreen toggling with Vulkan in SDL build

And there's plenty more. See all of it on GitHub and learn more about PPSSPP on the official site.

For any easy install on Linux, you can grab it via Flatpak on Flathub. It's currently still the previous version so hopefully it will see 1.10.0 in the next week or so. Otherwise, you can grab the source on GitHub linked above.

I remain in awe of how well PPSSPP and other emulators work, especially as developers working on such emulators do so in their free time. Keeping old platforms alive long after the creator is done with it, excellent work again.

Awesome, I played throughout the entirety of Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker on my Android device using PPSSPP and it ran amazingly well, so would love to try running it on my Linux box with this latest update.

Many years ago, when I was in high school, I wrote two homebrew games for PSP. To my joy, they work great in PPSSPP. You can find them here: https://coldpie.itch.io/
