158w ago - Recently the PlayStation Suite SDK went into Open Beta as part of Sony's Developer Program, and now someone has managed to successfully port the Nintendo (NES) emulator FCEU to PlayStation Vita on the latest PS Vita v1.67 Firmware.

It's pretty easy to do, you need:

1. PS Vita
2. Computer running Win XP/7
3. Files included below.

To quote via glichxp.com/?p=1986 (linked above): How to Play NES Roms on PlayStation Vita SDK on FW 1.67

  • You will need to sign up for the development suite by going HERE on your PS Vita browser and clicking Try now then clicking download under section 2. (this is a Sony site and the download link will launch the PS Store on your Vita)

  • The NES emulator is available for download HERE. (Click the green button to start the download.)

  • You will also need Vita Connect. (will allow you to copy .psspac files from your PC to the Vita)

  • Once you have these two you will need to extract both to a folder somewhere on your PC.

  • The Vita Connect download also contains the source code of the program and a pre compiled program in the “VitaConnector/obj/x86/debug” directory

  • You may need to copy the dll files into that directory from “VitaConnector/lib” directory.

  • Once you have the program running find the file leaf.psspac from the download earlier in this article.

  • Connect your PS Vita using the usb cable to your PC.

  • Open the Playstation SDK app on the Vita before clicking refresh.

  • Click on “refresh devices”

  • Click on “connect to the device”

  • Click on “upload”

  • Restart PS Suite Dev on your Vita

  • You should now have a “Leaf” game

  • Launch this to play NES

NOTE: For whatever reason the emulation only works at 15fps.

Leaf controlls[] and X are your A and B buttons Triangle will change the rom that's loaded. dpad is your movement keys.

Locate the compiled Vitaconnector and launch it.

Once open, select "Refresh devices" until your Vita appears in the box above, then click on it

click "connect to device"

In the package box, click "select" and browse to find Leaf.psspac (the nes emulator)

Then click "Upload" and wait until you get the dialogue box saying "upload complete"

Close PSSuite on the vita and reopen it.

Now, you'll have the option of selecting "leaf" which will open the nes emulator.

Did exactly like it says in the first post and did this and still it errors when I try to connect.

Weird, the app doesn't find my vita when i am in the developer. but if i minimize it then the app finds the vita. but i try and connect and select upload and it doesn't work, but then i go back into the vita connector and select refresh then the vita disappears and doesn't have anything connected. i did follow the guide and can't get it working, anyone got any ideas?
