Questions and Answers

Why does my PSP emulator (PPSSPP and PPSSPP Gold) tell that OpenGL support is not detected on my desktop computer or laptop? Can you give me the OpenGL 2.0 for PPSSPP 0.9.8?

I cannot play my emulator because I don't have OpenGL 2.0. The message appears on start-up. Do I need an upgrade? How do I fix it?

OpenGL 2.0 is required to use the PPSSPP emulator on your computer. Unfortunately, there are some older or underpowered computers that use GPUs (graphics processing units) that do not support OpenGL 2.0. This is often the cause of PPSSPP telling you that you don't have OpenGL 2.0 currently installed. To find out if your computer supports OpenGL 2.0 or not, follow these instructions:

If your GPU supports OpenGL 2.0, you will be able to find an update for your GPU that enables the feature. Make sure you only download the update from NVIDIA, AMD, or S3 Graphics' websites to make sure that you are downloading a safe file. If your GPU does not have OpenGL 2.0 support, you will unfortunately not be able to use the PPSSPP emulator as it was originally intended. Thankfully, a developer has ported the PPSSPP emulator to DirectX for broader compatibility with all sorts of computers. This port gives a performance hit of roughly 2 to 5 FPS (frames per second), but your games will still be playable. Click here to download and install the DirectX port of PPSSPP.

To fix it the error, it is most suitable to buy and install a new video card with the OpenGL 2.0 support into your desktop computer. Laptop computers will not be able to resolve this problem.

Hi, I have a PSP 3000 and I clicked on update on the PSP emulator but it said; error?

I updated the PSP about 3 months ago

It probably means that the update server has moved to a new location. You will have to update your emulator by navigating to the official download page (click here) and click the blue "Download" button to the right of the line reading "PPSSPP for Windows".
