Borderlands 2

Wait you still have hope?

Borderlands 2 is a legendary game on the PSVita, not because it's an awesome game or something, but because the port was horribly made. But since the franchise was so popular, people started trying to revive it with some tweak to make it playable. And that since 2016 until today. Reddit user (u/MODman01) claim to have found a correct setup (a mix between best graphics and best performance) for Borderlands 2 and share his setup :

  • Use the latest Borderland 2 (1.09 as of now, and forever I suppose)

  • Use nonpdrm, not maidump or vpk (Legit bought game should works too since they aren't different from nonpdrm format apart a legit license)

  • Overclock to 500MHz

  • Use VitaGrafix to set the Framebuffer to: 640x368.

  • And the last thing is installing the Patch, (Installation instructions are the folder directory and names)

Some comment from the OP :

So after all the testing I have done for this game I found out some interesting stuff.

The only way to make the game run better (fps wise) is to overclock and reduce the screen res to: 640x368.

No matter how low the texture res or the object spawn range is, it doesnt effect the performance not even by 1 fps.

For the record, this is everything that you can change in the game files:

MaxSmoothedFrameRate=
ONLY NEED TO CHANGE THE FIRST ONE
DOESNT EFFECT PERFORMANCE
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ViewDistanceConsoleScale=
DOESNT EFFECT PERFORMANCE
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DefaultPostProcessName=
WIHOUT OUTLINE: WillowEngineMaterials.CinematicScenePostProcess
WITH OUTLINE: WillowEngineMaterials.WillowScenePostProcess
DOESNT EFFECT PERFORMANCE
BUG: THE DUST, MOUNTAINS
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TEXTUREGROUP_World=
STOCK: 1024
ONLY NEED TO CHANGE THE FIRST ONE
DOESNT EFFECT PERFORMANCE
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And that's it, If you have any questions or suggestions, you can contact u/MODman01 on reddit.
