You also mentioned in another thread that you lowered the default CPU speed of the emulator as well, from 222 MHz to a lower number.

That is the key to attaining the faster speed, as stated in the guide.

Increasing the framerate in the in the ppsspp.ini file (from 0 to 80 for example) will only increase the fixed speed that you've chosen when toggling to it from the default of 60 (100% speed in the latest revisions) to 80 VPS.

0 is the default option (means that if you toggle it to fixed, the Speed will remain steady at 60)

As an experiment to prove the hypothesis try the following:-

1. Increase the framerate in ppsspp.ini to something ridiculous like 2000

2. Make sure PPSSPP is set to display the Speed on the top right hand corner of the screen.

3. Toggle the mode to Fixed Speed.

4. Notice that its only increased the speed to as much as your device can handle. You won't actually get 2000 VPS by setting it to 2000 in the ppsspp.ini on your Android device. What you've actually done is to remove the upper limiter on your device, much like the unthrottling function that PPSSPP already has.
