PCSP is a Sony PSP emulator in the early stages of development.
At the moment only Bubble Bobble pocket, Super Fruitfall , kazook and maybe more are playable.
PCSP has a nice debugger, configurable controls and no sound.

Well it is time isn't it. After the crazy night with hlide's updates it is time to release a new version of pcsp!
Most interesting aspects of this release are :
-Plenty fixes on GE engine including new shader render.
