What is Vita Moonlight?
Moonlight is an open-source implementation of the nVidia GameStream client that allows you to stream your Steam games (and some non-steam ones) to a mobile device of your choice. It allows for high-quality streaming with minimal to no input lag of your PC games. Originally the GameStream system only allowed to stream to nVidia Shield devices, but Moonlight allowed people to stream to their favorite devices and now it has graced its presence on our Vitas too.
Changelog for Vita Moonlight Alpha 4:
- Control scheme remapping
- Configurable front touchscreen buttons

Instructions for Vita Moonlight Alpha 4:
With all these changes comes also a new way of doing things and ShadowPrince has done us the favor of listing all of them:
config.txtaren’t needed anymore – everything is done from within the app.
Obviously stream configuration only applied after stream restart, input applied instantly.
If you want to use Vita native resolution (960×544) you need to go to NVIDIA control panel => change resolution and add the resolution manually. (Customize=>Create custom resolution) Also, some games might need additional settings to stream 960×544 (for example, for Portal 2 I had to add
-width 960 -height 544command line options).
- LT/LR/LT/RT – back touchscreen
- Pause stream – front-left corner of front touchscreen
- Special key (XBox key, Guide key) – bottom-left corner of front touchscreen
Enable mapping filein the settings.
Example: config file with swapped triggers and bumpers: vita.conf
Special buttons on front touchscreen
Check settings. You can also enter key code manually, check this page to find out the right one. Keep in mind that Alt-Tab or Windows key will not work.
Back touchscreen deadzone
Check settings. For easier configuring menu also visualise touches.
Disabling power save
Enabled by default. Vita will not go to sleep when stream is running.
With all of this, what was good just became infinitely better! While I can’t give it a spin right now because the desktop is off, I sure will tomorrow as soon as possible. I am always excited for new releases of Moonlight on Vita and this is no exception
