    One of the best things that could happen to the PlayStation TV (Vita TV) was the AntiBlackList (Whitelist) patches that removed the restricted that will only allow certain Vita games to be played. While it did not make every single game playable, those patches did open most of the library up to user's., but some games would still proved to problematic leaving a bit of unknowns why some titles would not work, but developer OperationNT stumbled on to something very interesting with this new FakeCamera Plugin. This plugin is important for PlayStation TV (Vita TV) because some games would call for the Vita Camera and we all know that the PSTV does not come with a camera only the Vita itself. The dev has two new titles confirmed to work with this method, If you stumble on to another game let us know in the comments below, view all the details from OperationNT.

    • FakeCamera - Simulate camera answer on PS TV
      On PlayStation TV, some titles unlocked though AntiBlackList could crash due unexpected SceCamera API answers (because they were never conceived to run on a device without camera). This plugin could intervene to "simulate" expected answers and, therefore, avoid some crashes. It only works for titles which have been dumped (by Vitamin or MaiDumpTools).


      Installation: For each title which crashes when it should activate the camera, you can add those lines in ux0:tai/config.txt:​

      Replace TITLEID00 by your title identifier.​


      Compatibility
      • PCSF00007 - WipEout 2048 - The game won't crash on a multiplayer session start! (due to the useless picture feature)
      • PCSF00214 - Tearaway - It won't crash but it will be locked on some asked interactions (like shaking the PS Vita)
