SNES9XTYL gets updated for PSVita!

The snes9xtyl emulator has been updated again.Also with steady support for Ark, VHBL and Adrenaline. Developer esmjanus have been pumping out steady updates with improvements of each release.

The Snes emulator for Ark and VHBL offers fair emulation and since the snes9xtyl have been ported to the VHBL and Ark, it’s still difficult to get some games to run full speed with sound due to the media engine not implemented in Ark or VHBL.
