NoPayStation is an app designed for users to download games, DLCs, updates, and themes on their PC or Mac and then transferred over to the PS Vita. These downloads are from users who actually brought the downloads and uploaded it to NoPayStation for everyone's enjoyment. This provides a safe and quick method to obtain what you are looking for. In order to use NoPayStation, users must have certain plugins already installed. Please refer to the "Already Installed section" for the prerequisites needed before you can use NoPayStation.

Step 4: Close NoPayStation and Rerun.

Close the options page and exit out of the NPS browser. Then run it again.

 

Step 5: Download Game/DLCs/Themes.

Browse for the game you want, and you can filter it just to Vita games for an easier search. Right click on the file you want and click on the Download and Unpack. Do the same for any DLCs.

 

Step 6: Enable Hidden Folders

You need to enable View Hidden folders to see everything in your memory card. Go to View / Options / Change folder and search options / View / and select "Show hidden files, folders, and drives", and make sure to uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).  Click Ok.

 

Step 7: Connect PS Vita to the PC.

Turn on your Vita and launch VitaShell. Press SELECT to connect to your PC through USB.

 

Step 8: Transfer Game File to Memory Card

Your downloaded game file will either contain an App folder or a folder that starts with a letter follow by numbers. In this example our game has an app folder and inside is PCSE00651. You should see an app folder on your memory card folder. Copy the PCSE00651 folder and paste it into the App folder. Wait for the files to finish transferring.

 

Step 8.5: Transfer DLCs or Patches.

If your game file contains other folders such as addcont (DLC), license, patch, app (game itself) then you will need to transfer those over to the same corresponding folders on your memory card. If the folders are not on your memory card, then create them.

In the diagram above, each folder will contain the game ID (PCSA00147), except for license. You need to move each folder in the red square to the same folder in your memory card. Ex: Move the PCSA00147 folder in the app folder to the app folder in your memory card.

 

Step 9: Have VitaShell Install the Game.

Press triangle and click on Refresh LiveArea and press X to continue. The screen should say “Refreshed 1 items.”

Note: If you are transferring multiple games, you only need to refresh once. In that case the screen should say “Refreshed X items” where X is the number of games you transferred.

 

Step 10: Go Back out to the Home Screen.

Go back to the home screen and scroll all the way down. There should now be a bouncing bubble containing your game.
