  1. anyway to run vitamin dumps, getting error

    |C| [get_archive_contents_path]: A Vitamin dump was detected, aborting installation…

  2. Nice tutorial. I am having a problem though. I have tried many games including homebrew and al i get is this
    [12:01:29.767] |C| [get_archive_contents_path]: A Vitamin dump was detected, aborting installation… Any help you can give would be great.

  3. Is it really worth buying a PS Vita for this emulator? I only dump games and don't download from sites unless the game isn't available for purchase. Do you know where I can find a site that shows how well each game runs on the emulator compatibility-wise?

  4. I don't know why, but the games don't work for me. I've tried 2 games: Devious Dungeon and FullBlast.

    Everything worked during the installation. Both the firmware and the zipped games.
    All I get is the cover picture, and then the emulator hangs completely so that I can only close it by force.

    What am I doing wrong ?

  5. I have a question !!!! Can I emulate KillZone: Mercenary Warfare and also play the multiplayer as well!!? Please answer!!!!! The reason is just that I want to get a steam deck and so I was wondering if I'm able to install that game and also play the multiplayer as well

  6. I downloaded ridge racer in VPK version when I go to install it tells me FAILD !! How should I do? It has three files one in ZIP format and another 2 in VPK blank. I tried compressing to ZIP but it doesn't load it that way either. Could you give me a hand please? Greetings from Italy.

  7. Not worth the time to do all this. Only 15 playable games and they are garbage

  8. Hi, thanks for the video.
    Is it possible to use a Dual Shock 4 controller and its touchpad for games like Tearaway? Is there any way to do that? Many greetings

  9. Hey I have a Question. is there a way you can play on vita3k with a ps3 or ps4 controller? if so, how do I set it up?

  10. I never had a Vita but once the emulator is working well I'll finally check out some of the games.

  11. the download for the update 3.73 is not downloading. do you have an extra in a filesharing site?

  12. K, so i got a problem. I downloaded shovel knight in zip file, but when i go and install it on vita3k, it says that it failed to install, what do i do?

  13. Okay, what about if the message will pop up

    "Could not create OpenGL context! Does your GPU at least OpenGL 4.1?"

    is that any possible can fix it or RIP

  14. Question! my rom comes in two parts. how do I install them to the emulator?

  15. Hi Blaine can you please please make a video on how to update madden 13 on the PlayStation vita. They have current rosters and new jerseys also stadiums and a graphic patch. I will leave a link for you. so you can go to the website and download all the files needed. The website is in the description of the YouTube video.
