Review[edit]

It requires the Jave Runtime Environment to be installed, which has a history of security issues. Because it uses Java, it is also much slower than PPSSPP. It is recommended to use PPSSPP instead, and only to use JPCSP if a game does not work. Development of PPSSPP is rapid, and it will soon overtake JPCSP in terms of game compatibility.

The developers of JPCSP never intended for it to become a standard emulator. It was created to better understand the PSP's inner workings. Thanks to the JPCSP team, PPSSPP is developing quickly. Both teams communicate and contribute with each other.

Audio[edit]

For most audio, you'll need some method of decoding ATRAC3+. FFmpeg plans to cover that, but for now you need at3tool or SonicStage.
