Does data install improve performance? [/align]

No it does not. It was explained in a previous thread.

its for the umd, lessen loading times


RE: (Probably been asked) does data install improve performance? - Obi55 - 03-31-2014 06:55 PM

Yeah, but this does not apply to PPSSPP.

It helps a lot on a real PSP when running from a real disc, but as there is no physical UMD to spin in PPSSPP, there's no benefit. Some games will force you to install before letting you play though (e.g. MGS Peace Walker, .hack//Link), and there's not much that can be done about it.

tl;dr: If not required by the game in question, it's a waste of space, so don't bother.

Thanks

djmax clazziquai is another exception.
using data install is still useless, but there's a "installed data" file that fixes some problems and enables a harder version of some songs and the "story" mode.

Also voice overs in Mana Khemia battles don't play if you don't use data install

Actually this it not true in all cases.
In MHU for example you get to see weapon previews in the shop, but only if you installed the data. So it might not be a difference in speed, but can change things.

I own MHFU and I can see weapons previews without installing data...


RE: (Probably been asked) does data install improve performance? - nc50lc - 05-27-2014 05:58 AM

I think he means "automatic preview ". When you install data on MHFU, the equipments from shop will show its previews automatically; otherwise you have to press the specified button.


RE: (Probably been asked) does data install improve performance? - vnctdj - 05-27-2014 03:06 PM

Oh, I misunderstood then ! Undecided
Thank you nc50lc, I didn't know about this little feature Smile

Does data install improve performance? [/align]

i dont know how old you guys are but im 28 years old and i remember times where biggest hdd among kinds in your city was like 10GB and max speed for CD-ROMs (DVDs didnt exit yet) was x16 - where most kids had like 3-5 GB HDD and x4-x8 CD speed

and so around 90% of games at installation was giving you option - do you want to make full install (all data go to HDD and will be reeded/loaded from it) or you want to make minimal install (where only necessary files will go to HDD and rest will be loaded from CD) some games had medium install but nvm that

anyway what i learned from that was fact that its better to have bigger HDD than faster CD
cause games will load faster from HDD always and so in many games even when games loaded from CD some features ware disabled and was available only with FULL installation (in most cases some graphic effects ware disabled sometimes CD had lower quality of music or music was getting choppy when some locations ware loading)

and im telling you all this cause today we have huuuuge HDDs (my 1st hdd had 1GB LOL) and even if ppl download/rip tones of psp games (no matter how they get them) then i wont believe that person who do so dont have like 5-10 GB of extra space on which ALL games that he/she have on hdd could install that extra data that some psp games requires


and so i dont know how for you all but for me its obvious that if game provides data install than its cause it will let the game load some stuff faster
and now you think ok but i have psp game image so all is on hdd so it will load it fast anyway

and yep thats true but when you select not to install that extra data (on pc+emulator) than for game its like it still reads it from UMD so some features would be disabled to optimize performance


so my suggestion is better install all s#!7 game provide and dont give a [email protected]┬ęk
that few GB wont kill anybody


someone teach me how to make shorter posts

this is how idea of installing extra data back in my days was like

Tekken 6 is quite a demanding game. Have you tried using frameskip?
