CPSEmu 1.2 Released


Remember when I was having fun playing Street Fighter Alpha 3 as you can see from the screenshot above? I was using an app called CPSEmu which allows you to play CPS2 games on your Android device and the app has just been updated to version 1.2, bringing in some small changes such as:

  • fix background borders color (gray > black) on some devices
  • keep screen on while emulator is running
  • add switch button to in-game menu
  • switch kick and punch buttons for 6 buttons games

The most important bit is the Switch button which allows you to configure the game's difficulty settings - especially the one in Street Fighter Alpha 3 which I find a wee bit difficult on the default setting. Now you can play on any difficulty setting you want! Go ahead and grab it below:

Play CPS2 Games On Your Android Device! Namely Street Fighter Alpha 3 And More!


Fancy playing Street Fighter Alpha 3 or Marvel VS Street Fighter on your Android Device? Then you MUST try CPSEmu - the best and probably the only CPS2 Emulator currently available for Android! Developed by fellow XDA Developer Cpasjuste, this emulator allows you to load CPS2 roms via the app. As you can see from the screenshot above, I was trading hadokens with Ken while using Akuma in SFA3, running perfectly and smoothly on my ASUS EEE Pad Transformer. 

Oh did I mention it also works with Xperia Play's hardware controls? Yes and of course, it works great on my EEE Pad Transformer's keyboard dock - its just fantastic to play on the Transformer. One thing is missing from the emulator at the moment is the access to the game's dipstick section that allows you to set the game's difficulty settings - according to the developer it should be ready in the next release, so head on over to the link below and grab CPSEmu and start playing!

There's a donate version on the Android Market if you want to support the developer - you should since this emulator is a really fine piece of work!
