PlayStation Vita plugin developer Nameless Ghoul is back at it again with yet another good one for our PlayStation Vitas.
That’s right, just a couple of hours ago at the time of this writing, Nameless Ghoul changed the game (in my opinion). The man brought us a plugin that gives the Vita a core capability that cell phones and computers have had for years now.
The plugin is called NoSleep and it does what you might think that it does. It tackles the sleep timer’s pesky limit. This way you can have the sleep timer disabled entirely. Nameless Ghoul mentions how helpful for the modders and hackers out there that may need their device to stay awake for extended periods of time depending on what they’re trying to manage or accomplish.
He further mentions that it may be able to fix the issue when a device goes to sleep and does that awful thing where your save data ends up corrupted. However, at this moment in time, that aspect has yet to be tested. It could very well be that those games would just have corrupted data at checkpoints or save screens regardless. If anyone tests a game that is notorious for having corrupt save data after the device falls asleep could send Nameless Ghoul a tweet with their results, that would help us all.
Now there is a caveat to the whole thing and as obvious as it may be to some of you, it still has to be said for the rest of us. Your battery will drain faster. I bolded and italicized it because it’s ultra important. If your device cannot go to sleep, it cannot conserve power. So use this plugin intelligently and only when necessary.
It’s quite easy to install. Start by downloading the plugin that is listed at the bottom of the article. Then you’ll just add the path of the plugin to your taiHEN configuration that is under the *KERNEL section.
