在索爱Xperia Play手机上市前夕,Google将PlayStation模拟器PSX4Droid从Android电子市场中移除,引起软件开发者强烈不满。据国外媒体报道,PSX4Droid的开发者ZodTTD为抗议Google的行为,已经决定将新版的PSX4Droid免费,并在自己的博客上提供下载(链接)。

ZodTTD 表示,Google不仅将他的软件从Android电子市场中移除,而且已经冻结了他的Android开发者账号。在这个事情解决之前,他无法开发软件从 电子市场中获取收益。据悉,PSX4Droid在名称和ROM搜索功能等方面的确存在一些问题,不过Google的这个狠招也确实也伤了开发者的心。

I am currently unable to publish to Android Market.

In the meantime, I’m exploring 3rd party markets and I have decided to make psx4droid free, based it on the open source software PCSX-ReARMed by Notaz, and made it compliant.

You can download the psx4droid 3.0.0 APK installer package right here:

Developers interested in seeing the source that drives psx4droid, libpsx, can be found here:

What’s new in psx4droid 3.0.0? Well it’s based on a different emulator, PCSX-ReARMed. It has a better dynarec (cpu emulation technique) and lands up being much faster in general. It’s using a software GPU for graphics rendering, though I have an OpenGL ES 1.1 GPU made. OpenGL ES 1.1 is hit or miss for this type of rendering on Android devices. Many of these high end devices have slow Adreno 100 GPUs. So soft GPU is the way to go for now, especially with some improvements to come.

psx4droid 3.0.0 should have great compatibility, better performance, though it may be a lil rough around the edges when it comes to the settings panel. If you notice a force close in it, it’s bound to be fixed coming up.

Note that all save states previous to 3.0.0 are no longer compatible. If you have quick saves, be sure to turn OFF quick load before running games in 3.0.0. You should save over the quick saves or delete them before turning back on quick load.

Wish I could put this up on Android Market. This will just have to due for now.
