Call me a n00b but what's with that site? oO

All it says for me is 'PSPEmu is coming' and 'PSPEmu is released'.

Any other info about it?

It is the site from which PSPEmu was supposed to be released, then it was "shut down" by sony, then it was back up, but then had a countdown on it, the countdown expired, and now says its out.....

That's where we are now.

He setup a blog over at EFx2 today too (nothing on it yet though) .. http://blog.efx2.com/user/mattfazzer22/ .. Same e-mail and MSN contact for him. Who knows :D

Forgot to mention he signed up as his B-day as October 28th 1991 .. which would make him turning 14 soon. Now I don't judge by age because I have been surprised before. Who knows maybe he is some wizkid :p

I've did some googling and even though I hope it's true, it might as well be a fake one... Let's hope it's not :)

Edit:

http://pspsaves.info/news.php

It appears Matt Fazzer, of http://mattfazzer.bl.am/ has cancelled the multi platform PSP emulator he was working on.

The reason for this he states is due to 'threats of court action'.

Quote From Site:
I have also received an important email,
threatening court action for the production of
my playstation portable emulator. I therefore,
cannot continue my work with PSPemu I am
very sorry for all the inconvenience this may
have caused the PSP community. I would just
hate to get into serious trouble.


Alot of people agree a multi platform PSP emulator would take a very long time to code and involve more than 1 person.
I personally think Matt bit off more than he could chew...
This combined with the fact he's 14 could mean he's either very serious, or just someone begging for attention by creating a hype about nothing.

its all rubbish, the 'author' sent LoRd_SnOw a copy of this apparent emulator, which had some code on it to "protect it" from being distributed, after about another week or so he managed to get the code of him.

the result recieved from him when asked what was on it

"nothing it was just a gui made it look like a real emu."

PSPemu Project - Still Going On

Mattfazzer LOGO

I had a short talk with Matt Farrow, the author of PSPemu, a PSP emulator for PC & XBox about his current progress.

Basically, he did something much more than the old ELF interpreter can do, and tried to build his own firmware infrastructure by disassembling and reorganizing the official firmware. Currently he has implemented the basic functionality of Game, Music, Video, Photo and Network.

When talked about the emulation of a commercial game, he mentioned that he invented a new format which comes with .UMD as the file extension. This format will be converted from game ISOs using his own tool, which will bring file compression support to shrink the size of an ISO. But in the mean time, you can still stick to good-old ISOs using all kinds of loaders inside the emulator.

Currently, the emulation speed is fairly slow, around 4 fps. So far he only got Lumines running, but slow as hell. He said he will not release the emulator until the emulator can achieve 15 fps.

Some other features, like WiFi support, will not be supported in the incoming beta version, since it's too much work for an individual to complete.

In the end, he said the emulation speed might be able to achieve "perfect" in February of 2006, which was a bit too far to see ;)

--------------------------------

Well... Personally, the information above is still not enough to convince me that such a fancy emulator really exists. Maybe, at least, some screenshot will make us feel it's existence, and Matt agreed with that.

For more information on PSPemu, the official website is [here].

Thanks for the interview, and, wish you a good luck on the development, Matt! :)

I really am hoping that this is true, but it doesent add up... You can only hope for the best... right? :rolleyes:

it takes years to program a PSX emu, yet this guy, single handedly manages to throw together a PSP emu in 4-5 months.

hed have to be clark kent himself to achieve that feat.
