Zoe Quinn….a name that has been resonating throughout the gamingcommunity for a few days now. A name that conjures up images of horror and rage, twinged with deep disgust and revulsion that has not been felt since Sarkesian first hit the scene. A name which will go down in infamy among the greatest of all media whores. Zoe Quinn has cemented a reputation for herself as gamings little ‘Slutty Buddy’.
I’m sure most of you have heard the Zoe Quinn story by now,but for those who haven’t here’s the cliff notes.
Five guys screwed this for favours?Just loading her image nearly crashed the site (seriously).
I utilize more than a few emulators for my gaming, in fact I think I probably have (or almost have) at least one emulator for every system ever made. Unless I actually possess the console, of course. I have a great deal of consoles too.
And believe me,there were a LOT of consoles made.
There is something to be said for playing games on your computer as well though, especially on an emulator. So there is the odd time when I’ll play my console games like Dark Cloud or Super Mario World on an emulator as well.
I’m drifting away from my point however, which is that there is a new version of the PPSSPP emulator available for download. It is an emulator for the PSP system that I waited for quite a while before it finally worked well enough to be usable for most of my games. They managed it about a year ago though and now a new version has just come out so I thought it a good idea to bring this to mind since I haven’t had nearly enough time to write about games and game stuff as I would like.
The new features are as follows.
CLUT (paletted) texturing from framebuffers supported, fixing many graphical issues like the shadows in Final Fantasy: Type-0.
More types of framebuffer copies are now handled correctly, fixing a variety of graphical issues, like the sun in Burnout and many more.
Better savedata compatibility with the real PSP.
Support for more codecs used by “Custom BGM” and sometimes regular music in games: MP3, AAC.
PMP video format support.
Implemented some strange blending modes like ABSDIFF as shaders, fixing the outlines in DBZ Tag Team and more.
Emulation of the vrot CPU instruction improved – it caused cracks in FF3 graphics before.
Many bugfixes around the UI, touch D-pad now works better when scaled large.
Workaround implemented to support Star Ocean’s stencil trickery as efficiently as possible on all platforms.
Major corrections to module loading and memory management, fixing further games.
Bulgarian and Thai language translations were contributed.
Many, many more game fixes and bug fixes.
So for those who are like me I recommend getting the new version for your PSP games. And I promise to try and get more focus on games and stuff in the new future as well. There’s just so much going on with all the other things in the world that it seems like everytime I turn around there’s something else that I want to write about, or some other sink on my free time.
This is the second part of our Let’s Play for Super Mario Brothers 2. Apologies for the mistaken order but we didn’t realize until recently that we had forgtotten to include it. Watch them here or on my Youtube Channel.
