PPSSSPP VR - Windows
- Rift DK2FREE
PPSSPP VR is a PlayStation Portable emulator for the Oculus Rift that lets you actually be inside PSP games. You are not playing on a virtual handheld or screen, you are inside the virtual world. Important: do not resize the mirror window while in VR mode! Otherwise the GUI will stop working.
There are no default VR keys, so you should first go into Settings, Controls, and set the Freelook Reset key, I recommend 'R'. If you can't see the settings, you can turn off your Rift before you start PPSSPP VR, so it launches in non-VR mode. You should set whatever controls you want to use to play, remembering the real PSP doesn't have a right analog stick, L2, R2, L3, or R3 buttons, a touchscreen, or motion sensors. You should go into Settings, Graphics, and set your internal resolution to something large like 5x. The native PSP resolution is 480x272, which is terrible for VR. Also make sure you use OpenGL, because D3D9 is not supported. In Settings, VR, you can adjust the size of the VR GUI, settings for all games, or game-specific VR settings. Game-specific settings work differently than in Dolphin VR. Currently in PPSSPP, all settings are global unless you create a game config in the pause menu for that game. If you have a game config then all settings are game-specific for that game. You don't need a game config to use the game's default VR settings that I created. You need to rip your PSP games to .iso or .cso files. In PPSSPP, you can browse for the folder that has your games. In the game list, games I have tested will have a number of gold stars out of 5 in the bottom right corner. 5 = perfect, 4 = good, 3 = playable, 2 = bad, 1 = unplayable. If there are no gold stars, then it hasn't been tested and doesn't have default settings for correct scale etc. Press Triangle on a game to see the game's info and options. At the bottom of the info screen it will list any issues the game has in VR.
