its running quite nicely so far for most things! I tried Super Metroid last night and it ran properly, however it got pretty slow once the game started. Ran PC Engine really well, and SMS as well. So now I've got the following emulators running on my PSP;

PS1
SMS/GG
SMD
NES
SNS
PC Engine
GB/GBA/GBC (currently not using)

Is there any decent Atari Lynx emulation for the PSP? I assume that asking for a Jaguar emulator is probably pushing my luck slightly lol

ALSO, I have noticed an issue where I cannot seem to find my WIFI on the PSP, but I can see some wifi's near me, just not mine... is it to do with the time on the PSP being incorrect?

I've bought some new rechargeable batteries, 3rd party obvs, and a replacement battery comp cover, not sure when they will get here from hong kong though lol

Funnily enough there actually is an atari jaguar emulator for psp. I think it's just for proof of concept as it runs hideously slow (https://youtu.be/Q_2ALZteHfM). In terms of the lynx there is an emulator called 'Handy PSP'. It seems to work okay but the audio is quite crackly and the games don't quite run at full speed a lot of the time (~95% speed). Also, roadblasters doesn't work properly :-/

In terms of the wifi there is no reason why it wouldn't find it at all?! I know a lot of routers that use some of the newer security protocols (wpa2 I think) aren't supported by the psp and display the message 'not supported' in the signal strength column.

P.s. Even if you do get the wifi working, most websites won't load on the built in browser

PSP supports WPA but not WPA2 apparently. There are a few ways of going about getting that, my preferred way being daisy chaining an old router.

Interesting, thanks guys!

So in terms of Jaguar and Lynx, are there any decent emulators for those on PC? I am happy to run everything else via my PSP, I do have emulators on my desktop pc for sega etc but the psp is just a handier way of doing it.

I'll check out the wifi and see what its using, I use talktalk

Until recently, I used PSP, although in recent years I have been playing more from the phone, I already have the same taken, for the rest of the games I think it’s for the near future

See I was doing a lot of it via Android previously, but what with emulation on my PC, and PSP, I don't think I will bother with doing it on my phone from now on, I find touch screen to inaffective when trying to control and play seriously in anyway, but that's just my personal experience, I do have bluetooth controllers etc but it can be a bit of a hassle. I may simply use my phone to do SNES emulation as on the PSP, some SNES games seem to fail, such as Demons Crest (sections where you can choose your next area on the map) or Super Metroid (runs uber slow on PSP)

I mainly use a jxd 7800b for emulation now. Can even run a lot of dreamcast games :-)
