PPSSPP: 6 frames of internal latency

I always felt the PPSSPP core to be very laggy compared to my real PSP, but never really investigated.

So today I tried a few games with the single frame stepping method (pause + k), to get the internal latency. Tried three games:

  • Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles: 6 frames of latency
  • Pinball Dreams: 6 frames of latency
  • Parodius Portable (tried both the first and second Parodius from the menu): 6 frames of latency

Intuitively I would say something is off with the emulator implementation or the libretro core.

Does somebody possibly know whether this internal lag is correct or not?

This sounds as bad as the Mednafen Saturn core.

Can you feel any difference in standalone PPSSPP?

so ppsspp needs more hacking too?
