    WORK IN PROGRESS!!! BUT FOR NOW IT SHOULD BE USABLE

    Tutorial is describing step by step how to stream your Vita/PSTV games to screen of your PC or smartphone. Is opposite to Vita Moonlight, don't confuse both of them. rinCheat used in this tutorial is custom build, by that I mean is not officially released. But I didn't make any changes to code, I just compiled latest available source code into plugin. Below tutorial assuming that you know henkaku basics, and you are able to add plugins by yourself.

    A. Install - First setup

    1. Required:

    • Vita/PSTV on Henkaku with taiHEN framework or Enso (so 3.60 firmware)
    • Latest rinCheat plugin with net_module plugin
    • Vitashell
    • PC or Android phone connected to same network (router) as Vita/PSTV

    2. Install basic rinCheat files on Vita/PSTV

    This step assuming that you will use ur0 for plugin loading, if you are still not doing this, you should change it. In short time this will be new standard (Enso + SD cards, but not only). Also this step assuming that you DON'T have config.txt in ux0:tai/ location!

    • Run Henkaku
    • Open VitaShell
    • Run FTP
    • Copy rinCheat.suprx to ur0:tai/
    • Copy rinCheat folder to ux0:data/ (also to emulated uma0/ux0)
    • Done!
    3. "Install" files on PC

    • Extract downloaded files from PC folder to preferred destination (if path is C:\<your folder> then add administrator priviledges for app)
    • Add optional shortcut to rinCheat Streamer.exe file to your desktop

    Note: Files libjpeg-8.dll, SDL_image.dll, SDL.dll, and rinCheat Streamer.exe need to be in the same folder.

    3.5 Install files on Android phone (optional)

    • Enable Third Party Apps Installation
    For Android OS version 2.3 and earlier:

    Step 1 – Go to Settings.
    Step 2 – Go to Applications.
    Step 3 – Tap and check “Unknown sources” box.
    Step 4 – Tap ‘OK” when it show the warning.


    For Android OS version 4.0+:

    Step 1 – Go to Settings.
    Step 2 – Go to Security.
    Step 3 – Scroll down and check “Unknown sources” box.
    Step 4 – Tap ‘OK” when it show the warning.

    4. Small explanation regarding next steps.

    taiHEN, that part of Henkaku that is running your plugins reading "what to do" from txt file named config.txt. With latest Henkaku releases is better to keep that file into ur0:tai instead of ux0:tai becuase this will help to keep compatibility with custom SD adapters, and uma0: to ux0: mounting. Keep in mind that taiHEN firstly try to read ux0 file instead of or0 one. So for compatibility with next steps you need to delete ux0:tai/config.txt file.
    Config.txt work "per title" (excluding some options like *ALL or *MAIN - DO NOT USE THEM FOR rinCheat!!!). So rinCheat plugin is added per game. If you have 3 games, you need to add entry in config.txt for all of them separately by title ID (title ID is easy to read in ux0:app folder, just check icon0.png to make sure that ID match to game you want to add).

    Also you should know your Vita/PSTV IP address for next steps. I'm assuming that you already know it.

    5. Enabling rinCheat plugin for your games.

    • Open config.txt (located in ur0:tai/) using vitashell
    • At bottom click right d-pad button (insert line)
    • In new line write (using X button, then onscreen keyboard) your game ID prefaced with * sign (for example *PCSE00880)
    • Add another line below that one with entry ur0:tai/rinCheat.suprx
    • Push circle, and select to save file when prompted.
    • Add more games if needed with above method
    • Restart Vita/PSTV

    B. IN-GAME launch/setup - Needed every time

    1. Enabling stream plugin on Vita/PSTV

    • Enable Henkaku/Enso
    • Run game that you previously added for rinCheat in config.txt
    • Wait for title screen (optional, but recommended)
    • Push Start+Select (Options+Share using Dualshock 4)
    • Now rinCheat menu should appear
    • Select option called net module using D-Pad, then X button
    • Optionally you can select quality, my tests confirming that everything above normal can cause issues on games without hardware acceleration.

    2. Running enabled stream on PC

    • Go to folder where rinCheat Streamer.exe file is
    • Double click on rinCheat Streamer.exe
    • Type your Vita/PSTV IP address when prompted, and push enter
    • Now new window with stream should appear, here is your stream

    alternative:

    • Double click on rinCheat Streamer shortcut that you previously created
    • Type your Vita/PSTV IP address when prompted, and push enter
    • Now new window with stream should appear, here is your stream
    2.5 Running enabled stream with Android phone.

    • Run VitaView app
    • At top of screen type your Vita/PSTV IP address
    • Push Save Vita IP
    • Push Start
    • Here is your stream

    Note: In next run just:

    • Run VitaView app
    • Push Start
    • Here is your stream

    C. Recording stream on Windows 10

    1. First run

    • Enable stream on Vita/PSTV
    • Open XBox app from start menu
    • Run rinCheat Streamer (this need to be app that is on first screen, I mean other windows need to be behind that app. In other words, click on app window :P)
    • Press the 'Windows' key with the letter 'G' (Win + G) to open the Game Bar
    • At prompt do You want to open Game Bar check "Yes, this is a game"
    • Once the Game Bar is loaded choose your option, Screenshot (for a single image capture) or Start Recording (for capturing video from app).
    • Push stop when you finish recording
    • Done!

    2. Second, and later run

    • Enable stream on Vita/PSTV
    • Open Xbox app
    • Run rinCheat Streamer
    • Press the 'Windows' key with the letter 'G' (Win + G) to open the Game Bar
    • Once the Game Bar is loaded choose your option, Screenshot (for a single image capture) or Start Recording (for capturing video from app).
    • Push stop when you finish recording
    • Done!

    D. TL;DR

    - I'm pro, this tutorial is too long!!!
    - You are pro so this tutorial is not for you! We both know that you already know this stuff.
