Best setting For PPSSPP Android – Highest FPS, Tested with God of War and more!

Here is the list of Best Setting for PPSSPP Android. We will help you with best settings for PPSSPP emulator for better performance and highest FPS.

Hello to all readers and of course games lovers. Since ever I’ve grown up, I always used to be a big fan of action-adventure video games and my most favorite series were God of War. I’ve completed both the PlayStation 2 parts and already completed its PSP based version, God of War: Chains of Olympus, and the Ghost of Sparta on my Moto G Android phone (earlier) and on OnePlus 3. Here we’ve got the same settings. We will help you with best settings for PPSSPP emulator for better performance and highest FPS.

However, at initial, it was a bit difficult to play it on my mobile because of low FPS and graphic glitches. After being familiar with PPSSPP emulator, I tried multiple settings and tested over many games such DBZ series, GOW, some racing games, Final Fantasy, etc., and finally came up with settings which actually work not only to increase FPS but they also bring good graphic quality as well. We’ve recompiled these settings, and re-published this tutorial.

Just tuning the few options in PPSSPP, you’d be able to get the maximum performance to play games more smoothly and less lags, however, the performance of PPSSPP is entirely depends upon the power of the device, Motorola G is good enough to play most of the games and over the PPSSPP, it is giving an awesome performance. In the past, we had a great time with Motorola phone, and now we’ve tested this emulator on OnePlus 3 in order to bring these updated settings.

Below is the Best setting For PPSSPP Android, I’ve figured out with so many attempts, testing, and experiments to achieve high FPS as possible, I hope it will work for you as well.


Best setting For PPSSPP Android

1# Graphics

In this section we cover some major settings that should bring good graphics, and smooth performance. Since, the performance varies from device to device, it would be a good try out some changes on your own.

rendering mode

Also see:

– Rendering mode

Under Rendering mode, Tap on Mode and select buffered rendering. If you’ve a powerful handset such as OnePlus 3, Samsung Galaxy S6, 7 or 8 or somewhat like them, buffered rendering shall do wonderful work for you.

Update 07-1-2018: There has been major change implemented in this emulator few days back. The graphics rendering now supports Vulkan that works very fast, and smooth compare other reset of the shaders.

It works for both, high-end, and low-end devices.

So, going forward, we don’t have choose between such choices. You just need to select Vulkan under Backend.


This should bring major performance spike in your PPSSPP gameplay.

– Framerate control

Keep off the Frameskipping option, and un-check the Auto frameskip. That helps to ensure a smooth gaming experience.

There are two more settings under this panel. Check the Prevent FPS from exceeding 60 and put 0 values in alternative sped (in %, 0=unlimited).

– Features

There you several options to configure PPSSPP’s graphics appropriately. For better performance, we keep Postprocessing shader Off.

[Update: Sep 14, 2017]

We got little more deeper, and found a shader that improves the performance little bit more, instead of keeping it off as we did before.

Instead of keeping it off, or selecting any other shader, choose Vignette. We’ve seen good improvement in FPS using it on OnePlus 5, and hope that it will work on other devices as wel.

However to make graphics more smoother, one can choose “Bloom” under Postprocessing shader (it may affect performance).

Next, enable the Immersive mode to get full-screen display.

performance settings

– Performance

Here comes the most important aspect that gonna boost the entire performance of PPSSPP Emulator. Changes to these settings affect performance directly.

We had many trails, and tests to bring these settings.

If your device is powerful like OnePlus 3, equivalent or even more powerful (Galaxy Series), than high rendering resolution will work.

Try with 2x Rendering resolution. It brings impressive graphics and supports stable gameplay too.

Note: If your device is kind of low-specs or if you see low performance, then go for 1x Rendering resolution.

That should bring performance to its peak. Chose Display Resolution as mentioned in the above image.

Further, make sure to check Mipmapping, Hardward transform, Software skinning, Vertex Cache and Lazy texture caching (speedup).

Let Retain changed textures (sometimes slower) unchecked while keeping Disable slower effects(speedup) and Hardware Tessellation(experimental) checked.

Try to make your own settings by keeping on or off these settings.

– Textures scaling and filtering

Since we already setup with 2X rendering resolution, there is no need of using Textures scaling and filtering.

Just keep’em off all the time.

PPSSPP hack settings

– Hack Settings

Just like performance settings, these settings play a very important role when it comes to smooth, and stable performance.

Under these settings, just check following two options:

  • Timer Hack – improves FPS significantly.
  • Disable alpha test – best for PowerVR powered phones. It takes advantage of PowerVR’s graphic chips for better graphics.

And keep Aggressive mode in Lower Resolution for effects.

Don’t make any changes to these settings. They work for most of the devices.

– Overlay Information

To check the frame rate of games, it is recommended to choose FPS counter. Once you have it enabled, while playing the PPSSPP games, it overlays an information such FPS on current time basis.

Just put FPS under Show FPS counter and let other settings untouched.


2# Audio Settings – The Best setting For PPSSPP Android

Still, this emulator fails to render the audio part appropriately. If you enable it, the outcome is found to be quite noisy, lagging or something that may irritate you.

Audio settings PPSSPP

The audio works well with some games, and does not with many.

We recommend to try your own too if it works or not. In our case, it didn’t work with God of War, but works for many other games such as DBZ, and Naruto.

So while playing GOW, we kept this option disabled, and we recommend the same.

3# Controls

Thought, it totally depends upon a user how he/she would prefer the control. Still, we are excited to share our implements.

To play God of War extensively, you need to access R1 and L1 buttons on the Go. To make use of only right hand (or left), we have overlapped, these two buttons as shown in below screenshot:

Through these, it becomes easy to use these two using only one finger. Also, one can use both of them at once.

Another that we recommend it to remove that Unthrottle button from the touch buttons. To do that, just head to Touch button controls, tap on Visibility tab, and un-check the Unthrottle button.

Make further changes as per your comfort.

4# Tools

Under this panel, there is only one thing that we gonna change. Actually, these options come helpful for developers for development purpose.

For ordinary users like us, they’re nothing.

– Developer Tools

This option basically helps emulator to choose between two different recompilation features. Just Tap on Tools, under it, look for Developer Tools.

Tap on it. Next, under CPU Core select Dynarec (JIT) (something similar).

Selecting this feature, make sure to bring out the maximum outcomes, best PPSSPP performance.

5# System Settings

Under this panel, there are several major options to configure PPSSPP emulator appropriately, and optimize for better performance.

– Emulation

A few changes may affect performance drastically. So we recommend to go for Trail and Error method. Try to make your own settings or just lookout for one that we have mentioned here:

It is important to keep Fast memory (unstable) checked. It works on most of the Android phones, irrespective of their hardware. That means, it can help to improve overall performance.

Multithreaded (experimental), well we keep it off most of the times. We had no preferable outcomes with it. Try it out yourself, it it works or not. Since, this Emulator varies device to device, it might worth a try.

I/O on thread, just let it checked, and under I/O timing method, select Simulate UMD delays or Fast (lag on slow storage) (for low end device. These two add a little bit of smoothness to overall gameplay!

Let Force real clock sync (slower, less lag) remains unchecked.

PPSSPP general settings

Try to put a lower value to Change emulated PSP’s CPU clock (unstable) . In our case, we put 383, and tried few more values near to it. If you see no impact, let it be in default.

And let other options unchecked.

psp model settings

– PSP Model settings – The Best setting For PPSSPP Android

For better support, choose PSP-2000/3000. Actually, it does not help with performance in anyway, but it helps to increase gaming support.

All done! You’ve tuned your PPSSPP Emulator for best performance.

However, you may own change settings to tune it more better as performance device to device may differ for different settings. I hope this settings helps you for better game play of the PPSSPP emulator on your Android device. You’re most welcome to share your best PPSSPP setting as well, your comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Deepak Gupta February 8, 2016 - 1:58 pm

Rasmi ranjan February 10, 2016 - 2:30 am

On my phone intex aqua power plus the setting for God of war ghost of spata wasn’t made by me please help me to set the graphics with soundsound please…

Deepak Gupta February 10, 2016 - 3:41 am

Hi there,
Under hack settings: just check “Time Hack” and “Disable alpha test (PowerVR Speedup, artifacts)”. See if it works!

VIC COC MICT February 10, 2016 - 4:37 pm

Plz help me…
The setting working great but at some part when i play god of war ghost of spart at some places my screen become dark and i cant see the way also ….. plz help me

Deepak Gupta February 10, 2016 - 6:56 pm

Hello there,
In that case where you see dark areas, you could use “Buffer rendering” under mode. Try this I hope it would help you!

Naineesh February 13, 2016 - 4:49 am

Hi Deepak,

I have just bought a IPEGA Controller and own a moto g device. Will the controller make my phone lag? Are there any additional setting if we have a controller?

Deepak Gupta February 13, 2016 - 6:44 am

Hi there! IPEGA Controller is awesome accessory for an Android device! No it won’t cause any lag issue! To use it with PPSSPP, you’ll only have to use control mappings!

princess March 11, 2016 - 5:37 am

Hi william thank for your comment!

You could try one thing. Instead of Non-buffer mode, try if buffer mode works or not!

Hi jack!

If you’ve a powerful handset such as OnePlus 2/3 or Samsung S6 or something like that, try to raise the “Rendering resolution” and check “Disable slower effect(speedup)” box under Performance options.

Mehmet (TR,30,m ) June 26, 2017 - 1:20 pm

thank you very much this settings,(for my LG G2) choppy audio is a general issue of ppsspp emulator. increasing the frameskip didn’t fix the audio.

Deepak Gupta June 26, 2017 - 4:49 pm

Hi Mehmet,

Thank you so much for your appreciation. The Gold version of PPSSPP Emulator may over the Audio problem to some extent. Try it, and share your experience.


Amit July 4, 2017 - 11:31 am

Hello sir im useing ppsspp gold v1. 4.2 an i getting problem with all game the performance is very slow an audio also vry bad so plss help me, email me ur best settings for ppsspp gold

Here is my email address apatwa400@gmail.com

Jay July 17, 2017 - 6:59 pm

thanks for the guide, it seemed to help.
But games were super slow motion. Frameskipping seemed to help. Medievil worked great for a while but then suddenly l1 wouldn’t work if I touched any other button. It would work but when I touched anything it would stop and nothing worked for a few seconds. Then everything worked until I pressed l1 again and cycle would repeat. Tried unistall and reinstall psp but same thing happened. Resetting the settings didn’t help either. Now it’s stuck like that and nothing I do fixes it. Any advice?

Jay July 17, 2017 - 7:04 pm

BTW, I meant to ask if a crappy connection affects it. And also, ppsspp always shut down if time hack was checked.

Deepak Gupta July 19, 2017 - 7:35 am

Hi Jay,

Since you’re facing speed issue: super slow, that means you need to activate time hack option in order to get over this problem. Frame skip doesn’t work that much positively.

To give you more accurate information, let me know which device you’re using.

JC July 29, 2017 - 8:40 am

Thank You so much! Worked for me. Using Samsung Galaxy S5 and playing Final Fantasy: Crisis Core. No game lags, no sound lags. Smoother graphics!

Deepak Gupta July 29, 2017 - 8:43 am

That’s great to hear!

musbi August 23, 2017 - 2:20 pm

hi my ppsspp seems to be slow wat do I do

Deepak Gupta August 26, 2017 - 5:48 am

Hi there, since it depends upon the hardware, that’s why it might be slow. Which phone you’re using?

Deepak Gupta October 1, 2017 - 5:55 pm

Thanks for comment. It seems that sound works great on good hardware. On OnePlus 5, it works good. Though, it might get better in coming updates. Stay connected, we’ll be updating this post soon. Cheers!!

wahed October 9, 2017 - 8:26 pm

You might need to switch between Buffer render, and non-buffered. That should work!

Trying to get Tony Hawk Underground 2 Remix to work on a Samsung Galaxy 5 but no matter what set up I try it’s either laggy/choppy as shit or it will just close the whole emulator after a minute or 2 of starting a level..creating a skater worked fine alone with most of the other menu stuff but once I get on my board and just start having fun it crashes on me FFS…PLEASE HELP

Deepak Gupta December 20, 2017 - 5:02 am

Hi James,

Try to select Vulkan under Backend. It works good,and can improve performance effectively. Try, and let me know if you see any improvement.

Hello, what are best settings for v1. 5.4 ppsspp gold version?

Deepak Gupta January 9, 2018 - 4:29 pm

Hi Kevin,

Since this version supports Vulkan, you just need to select it under Rendering option. That should do that most of the work for you. Further, try some changes to further settings.

Ady January 15, 2018 - 11:58 am

Hello. Why should i not instert my memory stick? I saw the image and there is no check.

Deepak Gupta January 16, 2018 - 4:30 pm

Hi Ady, you must ask the same question on PPSSPP forum. That would be able to help you!

dark January 22, 2018 - 10:06 pm

What is this version

Jong January 23, 2018 - 3:35 am

Slow at my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Gt-P3100

Deepak Gupta January 23, 2018 - 4:25 am

That’s sad to hear.

Try to change some settings in graphics and see if it gets improved.

Alex January 23, 2018 - 8:05 am

Do you have any suggestions for NBA 2k12 on a Moto X4? Tried turning on Vignette and Vulkan. Game is still slow motion and sound is glitching

Deepak Gupta January 23, 2018 - 11:42 am

As you suspect slow motion, make sure that you check the Time Hack box. If it remains unchecked, it causes slow motion. Try it out, and let me know if it works!

Pierre February 14, 2018 - 11:27 am

It works wonders for me (constant 30 fps) :D Thanks! And the sound for GoW is perfect with a OnePlus 5 with PPSSPP gold v1.5.4, I just followed the guide except for the CPU clock (just the default setting, unlimited)

The sound glitches are common in many Android phones. You can simply turn it off to reduce interruptions.

Hi there,

It seems due to outdated hardware, this app is not working properly. I would suggest to keep resolution at 1X, and skip Buffer rendering.
