    Default PS2 Emulation on Android. (hear me out)

    OK! So I just got a Note 10+ and I've seen plenty of videos of people playing NFS:U2 and other PS2 games on android. But the issue I'm having is... well... there seems to be one functioning emulator for PS2 at the moment and its rather buggy, (damon PS2) and everything in it is hidden behind pay walls. But What I've noticed from using it is that the issue it seems to have is acceleration! every game I boot "runs" at a solid 60FPS, but for some reason they all run "Slow" and it reminds me of the older codebreaker hack for UG2 called "hypermode" where the codebreaker would effectively overclock your PS2 and the game would run very fast because the game speed seemed to be directly linked the CPU clock speed, Auto Modellista does the same, hell auto mod runs DEAD PERFECT aside from what looks like a clock speed issue. I should also clarify that these games run perfectly in menus, and the controls are perfectly responsive in game, it just seems like the game itself has been set to run in slow motion.

    SO! My real question! If were this close... WHY HAS NO ONE MADE A GOOD EMULATOR!?! lol

    Perfect emulator exists: RetoArch.

    It must be stressed that Play! is a Work In Progress PS2 emulator, and we mean that literally. Donít expect every game to run perfectly, far from it. However, it has a solid foundation and already has working dynamic recompilers for all the popular architectures, its value which cannot be understated. The libretro core also already has working savestate support.
    System requirements

    This core will require OpenGL on the desktop and OpenGL ES3 on mobile devices.

    Your system should currently be as powerful as possible in order to get the best possible results. As time improves, system requirements will probably reduce.

    Game compatibility is entirely dependent on the state of the upstream #Play! emulator. So as Play! improves, so too will the libretro core!

    Retro Arch seems pretty cool, I'll probably use it to keep track of other emulators, but the Play! emulator doesn't seem to run very well, I tried a couple games and they run much worse then they do on damonPS2. Thanks for the intro to retro Arch though, thats a very cool way to manage everything.

    Actually I have to agree with pix07. I have personally used RetoArch and have also read only good reviews online! I strongly recommend you should give it a go. Let us know how it goes for you

    Thanks for suggesting RetroArch its really amazing. You can try PPSSPP for playing PSP games though they all run pretty smooth
