Hi,

here is the first release of my CPS2 emulator for android.

CPSEmu is a Capcom CPS2 emulator for android. Play your favorites CPS2 games like Marvel Vs. Capcom, Street Fighter Alpha 3, Progear, Mars Matrix and more on your android device.

- Use the same GUI as my NeoGeo emulator "NeoDroid", so "NeoDroid" will benefit of all the changes added for this release.
- You can put your roms anywhere on your device, but a cache file is created for every (parent) games in a "cache" folder in your roms directory. If you move your roms, move that folder too.
- CPSEmu use a cache file when running, if you have some slowdown in the emulation, try to move your roms on another partition/sdcard.
- Thanks to frandroid for providing an xperia play device to improve/add control code/compatibility

Not bad.. gave it a go on my transformer and just got 19xx to play. When creating the cache images of any other game like mvc, I kept on getting error messages, something about crc and CPU1 (sorry, I forgot exactly what the message said, but I will check later). The roms are ok as I know for a fact that they work.

One other thing is that I couldn't change directory and the device did not look on my SD card to see if the roms were there or not.

That said, 19xx plays butter smooth, although the on screen controls could be better (ie the cross pad a bit larger as it is very easy to run your fingers out of it). I still have to try with my TF keyboard though.

Good job otherwise. I will test on my EVO 3d and report back.

Are you really going to make the GUI for NeoDroid white?

I know this is minor, but I much prefer the black. Perhaps an option?

Also have you considered using the menu button to open a menu with settings, email, exit, rather the the icons at the top?

For devices with a small screen and lots of roms, every bit of screen space helps.

In any case good work with these projects.

:edit:

I realize this is verison 1.0 and you probably have changes and additions in mind already.

A couple other things I noticed, in Marvel vs Capcom the lower buttons are punches and the uppers are kicks.

And the option to disable sound would be nice.

:edit 2:

I'm having a little trouble mapping hardware buttons. When I press up dpad (on a ps3 controller mapped to the phone's hardware dpad) for the first key, the clear button turns blue (highlighted) and it doesnt map the keypress and move on to the next one. In neodroid the mapping works fine

Works great with the games that are compatible, hope to see more games added in the future and the on screen pad is a bit small would be so much easier if it was enlarged a little bit, but that is my only complaint. This emulator is silky smooth and it's so awesome to bust out STF3 and it play flawlessly!

best emulator I've used on android so far.
I've only tried a handful of games and all ran perfectly on the xperia play.
Will purchase full donate version. no doubt.

What games are you running that are slow?
Every rom i've played has been silky smooth.
It's the fastest Emulator that i've tried on my XPlay.

- You are probably trying to run a "clone" rom, which need the "parent" rom. Look in the "Compatibility" tab (search button), if there is a line with "parent:xx.zip" then you also need "xx.zip" to run your rom.

- You can just use the "back" button of you device to browse to your roms directory, each time you launch a rom this path will be saved as default rom directory.

- I will see to add an option to change the theme :) (btw: NeoDroid gui is white since a while now)
- Unfortunatly, google now ask developper to not use the "menu" button anymore, so i add to find another way: the menu bar.
- w00t, i see why this is happening for the buttons mapping, i will investigate in this problem and release a fix soon (in a few days)

- If i'm correct all the CPS2 games are currently supported (except choco which is crap anyway), so i can not add anything else :p

- I do not own a tablet so i tried to do my best but it's hard! I will maximise the dpad size for tablets. Are the buttons size ok ?

thank you soooooooooo much
it has save option :) really good .

but rununig slow on my xperia play .
For now the emulator need to use cached graphics on your device, so it need to read this cache file a lot during emulation. I had no slowdown on my xperia, but i use a 8GB sdcard. I guess your sdcard is a small one or a slow one.

Excellent first release so far, looking very forward to making this my go-to CPS emu. Few things i'd like to point out from someone whos been using emulators on android for years. My config is a Touchpad running CM9 @ stock 1.2ghz dual core.

Sound is off. You can tell immediately from the insert coin sound in SSF2T and Vampire Savior, they do not sound accurate.

Games feel laggy. At first when i tried SSF2T, it was incredibly laggy, but then i found how to disable the filter and it was smooth after that, but still had a weird lag to it. The addition of a FPS counter would be excellent to see whats going on.

No support for players 2-4 to be configured in hardware buttons. I have 4 wii remotes + 4 classic controllers + 2 TVC Wii arcade sticks, so i have the ability to get 4-player arcade games going ontop of full 2-player fighter games with full arcade sticks, which i use with Mame4Droid often. Would be a great addition.

Emu runs in compatibility mode in Android 4.0. Instead of the menu button being natively working, it scales everything to fit the screen. It still looks great, but native 3.0+ support would be great.

Otherwise this is a great emu and i am enjoying it quite a bit. I would also love for CPS1 to be emulated at some point as well, to get all 3 major emus (CPS1/2/MVS) done by the same author would be awesome to have everything uniform.

Excellent work and keep it up.

The touchpad just has 32 gig of internal storage which is quite fast, no SD card of any kind. Ill update to 1.1!

Edit -

Updated to 1.1, and indeed it is now running natively in 3.0+, no more compatibility mode. Now however, i am running everything non-stretched, and the top bar ontop (touchpad is 4:3 res so gets mostly full screen for CPS2, full screen for console emus like snes/nes) is black and the bar below is grey. I thought something got weird so i switched from stretched, scaled and native, and noticed the background goes from black to grey now, previously on 1.0 it was all black. Due to this, it looked like 2 incorrect levels were displayed on top/bottom when it likely is just a bitmap change to the background causing it.

Otherwise, i think the games are running properly, but the sound being so wrong is making me think it is not running 60fps. Great work so far.

- You are probably trying to run a "clone" rom, which need the "parent" rom. Look in the "Compatibility" tab (search button), if there is a line with "parent:xx.zip" then you also need "xx.zip" to run your rom.

- You can just use the "back" button of you device to browse to your roms directory, each time you launch a rom this path will be saved as default rom directory.
Great! Thank you for the answer. I will install 1.1 and I will let you know how it goes.

Edit: ok, I installed 1.1 on my TF and you were somewhat right about the roms.... ironically, the ones that do run are the US clones. I actually have the (EUR) versions (full roms) and they spit out the error I told you earlier, but once I got the US clone file and ran that, it was good....

I think I may have found a bug. The key assignment....

I assigned hardware keys from my TF keyboard and only the Start, Coin, and dpad are being saved. None of the other 6 buttons get saved for some reason. I did it a few times over, turning off the program, etc and still nothing. I did notice that one of the changes you made included a tweak on this, so I am wondering if maybe something else got lost with the fix.

Looking better and MvsC runs like a champ!
