As an ex-psp HB developer I was so excited... - jamiefuller - 08-13-2013 11:48 AM

First of all, fantastic work on this emulator. its brilliant, by far the best emulator I have seen for PSP so huge thanks!

Many years ago I wrote some homebrew for the PSP, such examples as Sensitive, Boggle, PSP stack, Mayhem in Monsterland and some others.

Being the narcissist that I am the first thing I tried was my games =) however none of them work, which makes me sad.

I've tried all the different graphics settings and on both android and windows versions but still no joy (although enabling display raw buffer helps)

the game basically plays, but many graphical objects are missing.

Is this a known issue? is it something being looked at? is there anything I can do to improve? I would love nothing more that to get some of these old games playing on my phone.

Thanks again!
Jamie

Tried Mayhem in Monsterland with an older build(when Display Raw Framebuffer was still there)and background is visible but not the characters
You can post an issue on github here https://github.com/hrydgard/ppsspp/issues?page=1&state=open based on Homebrew & display raw framebuffer
If you try any latest build from here http://buildbot.orphis.net/ppsspp/ you will see that DRF removed and if you try the game and cycle through rendering mode for a brief moment the background is visible.DRF is important for homebrews,i hope for a return with the new UI Smile

@elsword you are asking for

Thanks sfageas, thats exactly what I was getting. I've never found an emulator that my games do work on but this one is by far and away the closest to actually working!

I'll try to log it on github.

I am retired from Homebrew dev. My work and family commitments have really taken over my life. I also have found a new love instead of programming in photography, which takes up what very little spare time I have nowadays.

Would be happy to provide any source cope etc for my games if it would help the devs though?


RE: As an ex-psp HB developer I was so excited... - stodag - 08-13-2013 02:53 PM

At least you can add a positive instead of a negative..
Good luck.

Welcome Jamie! Did you use the CPU to do all the drawing or just the backgrounds? Otherwise it's weird that it only partly works.

Feel free to send me your sources, [email protected] , I'll try to find time to take a look.

Thanks for banning that jackass elsword, arg.

Wow, thanks Henrik, Yeah everything was drawn using the CPU and standard graphics libraries. I've sent you the sources for PSP boggle. Any light that you can shed would be great, I really appreciate you taking the time to respond.

Thanks again.

If you write anything to the framebuffer, it's not surprising that it doesn't work.
The software renderer in the works will probably display your game properly when it is integrated in PPSSPP.
