Banned PlayStation Emulator for Android, Now Free and Open Source
If you can't beat them, change the game. ZodTTD shifts PSOne Emulator, PSX4Droid, from the Google market to open source.
The developer completely pulls out of the Google market, as he puts both the app and the source code online available for download. And he starts off his self-publishing career with a bang with the PSX4Droid version 3.0.
So what’s new with the PSX4Droid version 3.0? ZodTTD shares that “it’s based on a different emulator, PCSX-ReARMed. It has a better dynarec (cpu emulation technique) and lands up being much faster in general.” The new version uses an improved soft GPU for graphics rendering that aims to come out nicely for any Android devices. It also promises to have great compatibility and better performance but there will be a couple of issues along the way, which the developer shares he will fix soon.
You may have remembered a couple of weeks ago that the PSOne emulator was removed from the Google market for reasons not yet confirmed (although the developer reports that it has something to do with a trademark logo). Since then, Google has closed the developer’s Android Market and CheckOut Accounts, making him unable to publish any apps at all. He’s still making efforts though on having his account restored.View Article Source »
