For those who haven't seen previous version Hu-Go is a famous emulator of NEC PC Engine console, running on many system such as Linux and Windows. (see http://www.zeograd.com/ for details)
PSPHugo is a port on PSP of one latest version of Hu-Go.
What's new then in this version :
- Improve global emulation speed, PC Kid is now fullspeed even at 222Mhz
(overclock parameter set to 26 and sound 22Khz mono)
- HCD file support but sound audio track are still ignored
- Cheat support !
- Memory monitoring engine to find your own cheat code !
(It is all explained in the README file on a simple example)
Thanks to NC and my son for beta testing.
How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.
Sources are included, and this package is under the GNU public licence v2, read COPYING.txt file for more information about it.
If you want to discuss on this emulator, you can do it there :

Is HuGO really a good choice? It hasn't been updated in years, and compatibility was spotty at best..
I'm inclined to suggest you take a look at Mednafen, which has a TG16 core as well as others- you could probably port each core as a separate emulator once you've got the baseline TG16 stuff working.
I didn't want to port already ported emu ... Hu-go has never been ported, and i can play all my favorite games (PC kid, and soldier series).
Where is a port of Mednafen to PSP?
Ootake is the best free PCE emulator for PC.
But for a "easy" PSP port you need speed and a non-asm core.
I really glad you put in the Memory monitoring engine no PC engine Emulator on windows or Linux has this I would love to see this emulator on Windows some time
I will add this feature on some of my emu ports, i've so many games to finished
As usual - really great work, but why .hcd? Dou You plan to add .cue support in the future? If not - would You please describe how to make hcd-files properly (i've tried cue2hcd.pl converter, but unsuccessful).
hcd is the format supported by original hu-go version ...
If you want to convert cue to hcd :
Hmm.. hcd-files made by pceconv utility looks different to yours. If i get it right, this hcd-converter was made to convert iso/wav into "official's" psp-pce emulator (ok ok i know it's Yuna-replace trick) format.
I've written mine (dracx.hcd) manually using a .toc file ... there is .cue to .toc convertor, but i can't remember where i've found mine ...
No problem - TurboRip can make .toc.
Would you explain meaning of:
What is "lsn" (why not "msf" or something? )
What is that number (3890)? Is it a track's lenght or something other?
It's all explained in original HUGO readme
DOS version HU-GO. It was confirmed that started.
If the same file is started with psphugo-v1.0.4, it becomes the
screen of the CD player.
Is it a present specification?
I've written my dracx file manually, using .toc file ... If you see the CD player it means that it doesn't work.
Is there any way to fix problem with games like Cadash for example? There are only background is rendered, and no characters or enemiesl...
