This is a savestate right on the victory screen of Zero Blue. (Rather long fight). The game goes to 0 framerate and then PPSSPP will force close afterwards.
Savestate screenshot not included.

The version used is v1.3-861-g701b974

RE: 7th Dragon 2020
Imo the problem in that savestate is either a timing issue or data corruption as it either reads/writes something too fast/late or just doesn't have correct data in memory. Potentially caused by awful/hackish settings or some broken cheats made on psp.

So first thing to try is to - disable cheats, restore all settings to defaults, restart emulation and reload from normal in-game save then try again.

If it still crashes, it could be your copy of the game or whatever bad happened affected also your savedata.
For example your characters doesn't have any names, meaning you didn't read how to name them correctly despite playing english version and translator placing instructions in the tutorial script;]. While broken names doesn't cause instant crash in that fight(as far as I just tried intentionally messing my own), it could while playing affect some other important data over time, potentially bugging even your savedata. In which case sorry, but your progress could be screwed.

The fight itself, as whole rest of the game works fine for me. And at least for that fight, also with english translation(which does have some bugs in other places). Not from your savestate ofc, savestate keep all bugs so everyone who loads it will have exact same problem as you.

RE: 7th Dragon 2020
Thanks, hn yeah, I did miss the fixwidth warning - by the time I realized I already renamed the Navi. >_<' didn't cheat in this playthrough tho, and did try to pass that area with PPSSPP defaults.

I'm gonna go back to a hard save a little further back to see if I can extricate myself - Failing which, it'll be the end of 7D2020 for now, because this part is quite late in the game. =.='

RE: 7th Dragon 2020
If the problem affects savedata and potentially started by incorrectly named characters, maybe just remove them?

I mean this game doesn't really make a good "role playing game" as it allows deleting and creating player characters at will and doesn't have any character developement either, so you could use that, remove glitched ones&create new ones(with proper names;p) then use cwcheats to easily rush through the boss fight.

No guarantees it would help, but might be worth trying, and starting from last savepoint before the boss it wouldn't take much time since there's an exit point right there also with cheats even low level characters could easily kill a dragon / or be leveled very fast.

RE: 7th Dragon 2020
Update: I had a hard save from right before beginning to clear the Daiba Icepack. Replaying from that point allowed me to beat ZeroBlue properly without crashing - and best of all, without rebuilding my team at all. Great :3

This should be a lesson to me for hardsaving more often, and in different slots. =.='
