Play PPSSPP Multiplayer Games on Android

If you want to play a PPSSPP multiplayer game using your Android device then you can follow the steps below, where I have shown you all the steps that you can follow to set up your PPSSPP app to play multiplayer games.

1. Turn on Hotspot on Android Device

The first thing you need to do to play multiplayer games on your PPSSPP Android is Turn on the mobile hotspot,

Just go to your device settings then find Hotspot and enable it or swipe down the notification panel on your android device and turn on the Hotspot.

Note: You do not need to turn on an internet connection, You can play games without any internet connection.

2. Connect the Hotspot to another Android device

Now Turn on the WI-FI on the second Android device and connect to the first device hotspot.

Make sure you are connected to the first device hotspot and not to any other device or WI-FI.

If both devices are not connected to each other then you will not be able to play the game in multiplayer mode.

3. Change the IP address on both PPSSPP app Settings

Now open the settings on your second device, then click on about device and find the IP address of your second device.

After getting the IP address on your second device copy it or write it on a piece of paper.

Open the PPSSPP app on both of the devices then click on Settings>Networking>IP address, Now replace the current IP address with the new one which you copied or write it on a piece of paper before,

Follow the same steps on both devices and make sure the IP address is the same on both Android devices.

4. Enable networking and hoc server

In this step, you need to enable two options, the first is “Networking/WLAN” and the second is a “built-in PRO ad hoc server”.

Make sure to enable these options on both Android devices,

Without enabling this option your game will not run or you will face problems while playing the game.

5. Set Port offset between 5000 – 6000

Just scroll down in the Networking section and you will see that there is an option called Port offset click on that option and set the number between 5000 – 6000.

Some games require less port Offset, for example, 5100, 5200, 5300. On the other hand, some games required high port offset, for example, 5500, 5600, 5700, or more.

If you see a message like change post offset when setting up the game, Then just increase or decrease some port offset.

Important: Make sure both of the devices have the same number of Post Offset

6. Setup the Game

In the last step, all you have to do is set up your game, first open the game to set up the game then select wireless or network. (These options may be different on other games)

Then create a match on your first device and then search for the match on your second device, If you see the match on your second device then click on the match to join the game. 

After joining the game just start the match and your multiplayer game will work without any problem.

If you see a port offset problem while setting the game, Then change the value on the port offset settings.

7. Now Enjoy the Game

If you follow all the steps then I’m sure you can play any kind of Multiplayer games on your Android device without any issue.

Also, remember then all the games do not support multiplayer mode that means you have to try different kinds of PPSSPP multiplayer games.
