PPSSPP on Sony Android TV not working - arjank - 03-20-2017 07:44 AM

Hello, I installed PPSSPP on a Sony Android TV. No problem installing the app but when installed I cannot control the menu of PPSSPP. I can move around the choices in the menu but when I use 'enter' nothing is happening. Anyone a tip what I am doing wrong. Thanks in advance. Greetings Arjan

What are you using for controlling the TV? If it is possible, maybe plug in a keyboard or a usb controller and try with them.

Thanks, I was trying to control it with the remote of the TV. Now controlling it with Dualshock ... working now. Thanks for the quick response.

Thanks, the following problem is that when the usb-stick is attached to the tv I can't find the USB path in PPSSPP to start the game. I tested it on my laptop, no problem with the usb-stick. The game started right away. Where to find my usb-stick path when hooked on the SONY TV. Thanks in advance.

It should appear in the "mnt" folder of the device as another folder. the contents of the flashdrive are there.

Hey arjank, any chance you could try the following:

* With your working controller, go to Game Settings / Controls / Control Mapping and choose Test Analogs
* With the remote control, press Enter

Then report back which keycodes you see at this point at the bottom left of the screen, if any.

Done: Here the results

I dont remember correct name but check in those folders.


RE: PPSSPP on Sony Android TV not working - Henrik - 03-22-2017 02:50 PM

Thanks for the code, 23, that's DPAD_CENTER. We should listen to that as an enter press, I'll fix that.

Still no joy in the MNT folder to reach my USB-stick which is directly connected in the SONY TV. Any further tips ?

Mmm... maybe the stick is formatted in some weird way and the TV does not recognize it? What format is it? FAT32? NTFS? exFAT?
The safest format is FAT32. It is sure to be recognized by anything.

The stick is formatted FAT32. The stick is recognized by the SONY TV because when I plug it in a menu shows what to do with it (video/photo/music)

If it is recognized then it needs to be mounted somewhere. I dont really know where but there needs to be a folder where it is mounted.
