If you can't beat them, change the game. ZodTTD shifts PSOne Emulator, PSX4Droid, from the Google market to open source.

When there’s will, there’s a way. And app developer “” just gathered enough will power to find a way to provide content for his followers: go free and open source.

The developer completely pulls out of the 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 .

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 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.

You can download the psx4droid 3.0.0 APK installer package by clicking on this link. While developers interested in seeing the source can be accessed by clicking this link.
