    [INTRODUCTION]
    .................................................. .............................
    .................................................. .............................
    JPCSP is a Playstation Portable emulator written in Java for the PC.
    The reasons for this choice rely on the portability and flexibility of this
    programming language, which makes it much easier to test and apply changes
    whenever needed.
    This emulator is an open source project. If you want to contribute, check the
    links at the bottom of this FAQ.

    In this FAQ we intend to explain the multiple functionalities and
    architecture of this emulator, as well as list all the needed information to
    clarify any possible doubts about it's usage.

    Please keep in mind that JPCSP does not support or endorse piracy.

    [JPCSP FAQ]
    .................................................. .............................
    .................................................. .............................

    1. Getting started:

    Be sure to have JRE (Java Runtime Environement) installed in your computer
    before attempting to run JPCSP.

    NOTE: It is strongly advised that even on a 64-bit OS, you should install the
    32-bit JRE release and use JPCSP's 32-bit version, for compatiblity reasons.

    If you've downloaded the Windows version, use the batch (.bat) files located
    inside JPCSP's main folder (start-windows-x86.bat or start-windows-amd64.bat).

    If you've downloaded the Linux version, use the shell script (.sh) files
    located inside JPCSP's main folder (start-linux-x86.sh or
    start-linux-amd64.sh).

    If you've downloaded the MacOSX version, just double click the application
    bundle to start JPCSP.




    2. Loading/Running applications:

    To load an ISO/CSO image, you need to place it under the "umdimages" folder
    (this folder can be changed under Options > Configuration > General).
    For homebrew, place the application's main folder (which should contain the
    EBOOT file) under ms0 > PSP > GAME.

    To know which games are currently compatible with the emulator, you can check
    JPCSP's forum for the latest news and an updated compatibility list post.

    The games tagged as "Encrypted" cannot be loaded by regular means. The only
    legal option is to own a PSP and use it to decrypt your own games' boot file.




    3. Usage:

    The "File" menu allows you to load UMD images (Load UMD), homebrew applications
    (Load MemStick), and any other file such as demos (Load File). It also allows
    to capture and load the current RAM memory and GPR registers' state to a file,
    so it can be used as an additional save option (Save/Load Snapshot).

    The "Options" menu contains dedicated settings for "Video" (Rotate and
    Screenshot), "Audio" (Mute) and "Controls" features, as well as the
    "Configuration" menu.

    The "Debug" menu contains all the advanced features of the emulator such as the
    logger, the debugger and the memory viewer (see section 5. Advanced features).

    The "Cheats" menu allows you to apply cheats to the current application.

    The "Language" menu allows you to change the language of the emulator.

    The "Help" menu contains the "About" window.




    3. Command-Line options:

    Usage: java -Xmx512m -jar jpcsp.jar <OPTIONS>

    -d, --debugger Open debugger at start.
    -f, --loadfile FILE Load a file.
    Example: ms0/PSP/GAME/pspsolitaire/EBOOT.PBP
    -u, --loadumd FILE Load a UMD. Example: umdimages/cube.iso
    -r, --run Run loaded file or umd. Use with -f or -u option.




    4. Requirements:

    Minimum:
    - OS: Windows 32bit or 64bit / Linux 32bit or 64bit / Mac OSX;
    - CPU: Pentium 4 and up;
    - GPU: Any graphic card supporting OpenGL 2.0 and up;
    - Memory: 1GB RAM.

    Recommended:
    - OS: Windows Vista / Windows 7;
    - CPU: Dual core @ 2.5 GHz;
    - GPU: Updated graphic card supporting OpenGL;
    - Memory: 2GB RAM or more.




    5. Advanced features:

    - Font Override:
    It is possible to override the font used in the log window by editing the
    settings.properties file.
    You can specify a system font name, such as Arial or a TTF file name.
    We suggest Mona for partial Japanese character support.
    Alternatively you can install extended language support in Windows from the
    Regional Settings in Windows Control Panel, you will need a Windows CD and
    around 300mb disk space.

    Please note if a font does not work it is a limitation of Java, not JPCSP.


    - Game Pads:
    We don't support game pads in JPCSP yet, but you may use 3rd party software
    that maps your pad's buttons to the keyboard.


    - Patch files:
    To avoid repeatedly editing the settings each time you want to play a different
    game you can save them in a patch file that will get automatically loaded with
    the game. Patch files go in the "patches" directory and are named after the
    game's Disc ID.

    Please note when a game is using a patch file all compatibility settings in
    the user interface will be overridden regardless of their state.


    - Media Engine:
    NOTE: Currently, only supported in 32-bit Windows.
    The "Media Engine" can be enabled under "Options" > "Configuration" > "Misc".
    You also need to unpack a folder called ffmpeg-natives.7z located under lib >
    windows-x86.
    This allows JPCSP to use the FFMPEG's wrapper Xuggler to decode and playback
    ingame videos (instead of faked MPEG data) and audio (ATRAC3 only, ATRAC3+ is
    not supported yet).


    - Debug Tools (under "Debug" > "Tools"):
    * Logger:
    The logger is a tool that can be enabled under "Debug" > "Tools" > "Logger" >
    "Show Logger". This opens an additional window that keeps track of the internal
    functioning of the current application in the log4j style.
    With this tool you can check which syscalls are called by the application,
    which code blocks are being compiled by the compiler and so on.

    You can also customize it's usage by going to "Debug" > "Tools" > "Logger" >
    "Customize...".
    There you can specify general settings like opening this window at startup,
    preview the current log4j settings' file (LogSettings.xml), output the logging
    information into one file (formatted HTML or plain TXT) or several splitted
    files and even change the logging method in use (GPU log only, for example).

    Note: After these modifications are applied, you must press the "Generate new
    settings file" button to update the external log settings' file. The changes in
    "Settings" and "Advanced" tabs are not saved by the emulator so the user can
    easily regenerate the original file.


    * Debugger:
    The debugger allows you to view the disassembly, place, export and import
    breakpoints, step through instructions and override the program counter.
    The contents of the GPR and FPR are present in the side bar.
    Raw memory and VFPU registers are available in separate windows.

    There are some other miscellaneous features in the side bar:
    -> GPI switches and GPO indicators;
    -> GE Capture:
    The GE is the graphics unit. We allow you to capture and replay 1
    display list. All textures used in the display list will be saved to
    the tmp directory.

    For best results run replays in the same game the capture was taken in.


    * Memory Viewer:
    Displays the current's application raw RAM memory.


    * Image Viewer:
    Displays images directly loaded from the VRAM.


    * VFPU Registers:
    Contains internal information on VFPU oprations.


    * Instruction Counter:
    Lists all instructions and their frequency for the currently loaded program.


    * File IO Logger:
    Shows all IO activity.
    Useful for developers to make sure they are reading files once only and as
    quickly as possible. It can also tell you if you have forgotten to close a
    file handle.


    * ELF Header Information:
    Shows ELF section and program headers parsed from the application's main boot
    file.


    - Profiler:
    The profiler is a method used by JPCSP to analyse repeated code sequences in
    order to allow further optimization. If you wish, you can turn this feature on
    under "Options" > "Configuration" > "General". The data will be saved for a
    certain application after closing the emulator.
    Use "Reset Profiler Information" under "Debug" to clear the saved data.


    - ISO contents:
    You can dump the current ISO/CSO image's contents into an illustrative .txt
    file. In order to do this, go to "Debug">"Dump ISO to ISO-index.txt".
