    Installed and tested your update - in-game saving in Vagrant Story now works. Hangs on wyvern and on the loading Vigilante 8: 2nd offence isn`t fixed yet. Are you planning a system for sharing save states (in the emulator) or saved games (in-game saving)? I think it would be very nice and unique feature

    Can I just add how ridiculously happy I am that I can now dive in to Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII back to back. I've been looking at which games I wanna revisit and never realized how many of my favourite games were multi-disc. Andre, you are my hero.

    I've been playing with it a lot today and come across a few games that don't seem to work, but haven't had a chance to test them out with other emulators on my laptop to make sure it isn't the files themselves, but the two that don't work Evil Dead: Hail To The King and Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro.

    Other than that, the only thing the emulator really needs are 3 things:


    -For the SkyDrive integration to work better, but it looks like that is due to API issues.
    -Add support for the L2/R2 buttons.
    -Add a way to backup both the memory card data and Save State data to SkyDrive.

    Everything else runs smoothly, I've been playing FF7 and Gran Turismo today.

    finally EmiPSX for wp8
    how to download it

    It's in beta right now, so you'll have to get in touch with the creator (Andre o Botelho) and get him to email you a link for the download.

    Hopefully this will be out soon, although I've been reading that there's issues with games requiring two discs, such as Metal Gear Solid, etc. I would love to have MGS on my Lumia :)

    There was an issue where saves wouldn't be able to carry over, but that has been fixed as of the last update. I am actually downloading MGS right now to test out and see if it works, I will report back.

    He doesn't seem to check it too often, so give it time guys, it took about a week before I heard anything.

    Sad to report that MGS doesn't work for me, but again, might be the file itself. To be honest, only 4 games have worked out of the ones I've tested (FF7 & 8, Gran Turismo and Silent Hill). Ones I've tried that don't include Clock Tower, MGS, Evil Dead.

    Games that I could test and are working:
    Metal Slug - sound is not good but I've finished it already ^^.
    FF7 - Just test, is working and playable - can't sai if it works until the end.
    Gran turismo - last time I checked was working but a little slow.
    RE2 - working so far.
    Tekken 3 - CPU 100%, BIAS 1 - playable with low framerate(not noticeable) but hangs randomly.
    Crash 3 - playable.
    FFT - playable with great speed.
    Chrono Cross - works - haven't made more test because I only have a iso.

    Nice. Any thoughts about that hangs in Vagrant Story and on trying to play Vigilante 8: 2nd offence? Please make a possibility to share save states and in-game saves through SkyDrive and, maybe, HTTP like it is in wpTorrent. I think it`ll make easier to find a reason of in-game hangs like that one.

    Do you still need help with translations? I can help with Russian version.

    Andre, my understanding is that .iso are generally unsuitable for PSX ROMs since they can only contain one track. PSX games often contain CD audio tracks in addition to the game data, so BIN/CUE, MDF/MDS and CCD/IMG are more suitable candidates for support since they are designed to support multiple tracks, it is also possible to convert an .iso image to these formats anyway. If it was essential to support .iso images on the phone can't you just instruct users that they must rename the file extension to something else of your choosing before loading it onto the phone?

    P.S.
    Nice to see some beta testers are providing good feedback and testing plenty of ROMs. I hope those requesting beta access follow Roman and Mister Gore's example, namely that betas are for testing and providing constructive feedback not to get early access to an app so you can play your favorite game.

    FF7 runs great, only problem I have encountered is the screen going glitchy when you load a save state, but opening the menu or switching to a different screen fixes it right away. I am almost at the end of disc 1 so I'll be able to give you a heads up on how everything works switching over to disc 2.

    In my experience (which is admittedly limited) with Gran Turismo it runs at full speed and perfectly. Just kinda hard on touch controls.

    Hoping a future update makes more games compatible, I especially wanna play Clock Tower and MGS. Also, haven't tried any Resident Evil games simply because the sites I get my ROMs from don't seem to have them, but I will try them out soon.

    In other words, I have the horror game market cornered for the beta test haha.

    Sad to hear that Metal Gear doesn't play right now :(

    Although, Resident Evil 2 would be a nice concession! Can't wait for this to get into the store. I'll definitely waste some time playing some old PS1 titles ;)

    What model handset are you using for the record? I believe Andre tests mostly with a 620. There may be a considerable speed advantage on handsets with 1.5GHz CPUs, this is another reason beta testers are important. Indie devs don't have access to a plethora of hardware to test their apps on, in the case of an app like this which is pushing the phone to its limits this presents obvious issues with testing.

    Unfortunately I'm thinking a lot of the game specific problems will have to be debugged on a game by game basis. Given the complexity of this port in comparison to other emulators I'm concerned compatibility will be a real problem even after release. Given that previous emulators have essentially been direct ports of existing emulators from other platforms they can maintain good compatibility, they have set a high bar by doing so. In EmiPSX Andre has been making considerable changes to the core to get the required performance on WP8, I get the feeling a lot of people will ignore this and just assume it will work flawlessly out of the gate. Hopefully if you and the other testers can at least get the start of a compatibility list you'll spare the "public" some unpleasant surprises in terms of performance and compatibility expectations.

    I'm using a 920 so that does explain the better speeds. It also allows me to test out the loading of the files without an SD card.

    I own a 620 because was the cheaper($250) at the time I began developing to WP and is the lower spec hardware to develop. Anything that work on it have a high chance of work High end devices but the opposite is not true, but I don't own a High End device so any feedback will help.

    I was right up till the end of the first disc of FF7 and was having constant graphical glitches and freezing.

    Not sure how much further it would have gone as I ended up flashing my phone to get the Amber/GDR2 update, which is great. Starting on FF8 now, will report back on any issues :)
