RE: memstick folder path
If you are on Windows Vista/7/8 you can use the mklink command prompt function to make junctions that will trick the program into thinking that your memstick folder is still in the same place.

Consider the following scenarios:-

1. Your ppsspp folder is in C:\ppsspp\ which means that the program would look to C:\ppsspp\memstick for the location of your savedata

2. Your actual memstick folder (with all the save files etc) is in D:\memstick since you are running out of space in C:

The procedure:-

1. Open up an administrative command prompt. (Start, type in cmd, right click on the icon that appears in the search results and click on Run as Administrator)

2. If the above details as outlined in the scenarios above are true, type in the following:-

mklink /j "C:\ppsspp\memstick" "D:\memstick"

(The first path is the place where you will create the junction/virtual folder which will be linked to the second path, which is the actual location of your save data and the memstick folder)

3. Press Enter/Return key

(If you get an error at this point, make sure that the memstick folder in C:\ppsspp does not exist, it should not be there, so that windows can create the junction)

4. To test out whether or not it was a success, go back to your original ppsspp folder in C:\ppsspp and double click on the memstick folder there (it should be a folder with a shorcut arrow next to it).

It should properly load the contents of the folder you've linked to which is actually in D:\memstick

You've now linked your memstick folder from D: to a "virtual" one in C:\ppssspp and the emulator will still think that the savefiles are in C:\ppsspp\memstick

i made a ppsspp launcher for my suite with a special feature: memstick detection. memsticks will automatically be detected and set in quicklauncher mode and a menu will ask which you would like to use in launcher mode. you can type default in launcher mode to use data\ppsspp\ if no memstick is found in both modes it will simply launch using data\ppsspp\.
