As stated in point 6: http://forums.ppsspp.org/showthread.php?tid=402

This builds are non official builds, some errors not present in the main releases might occur. just be patient till the devs fix them again.

Can you give me more details? What is your Android device?

Everybody are reporting the same thing for me. I got the same problem.

Since he hasn't replied yet, let me fill in with some info on results with my own Android devices.

I've tested "ppsspp-v0.9.1-1657-g5c3f6ba-android.apk" both on my OUYA and on my "DMTech Tablet 816HDC" (rebranded PIPO Tablet), with identical results.

Installation of the app works fine, as usual done by sideloading through "ES File Explorer".

Launch of the PPSSPP GUI also works fine, with access to its usual menus.

Launch of any game results in immediate crash out of PPSSPP. For the OUYA this lands me in the OUYA 'Make' menu, and on the tablet it lands me in the normal desktop. For both cases this is the place from which PPSSPP was launched. This crashing occurs identically regardless of whether cheats are enabled or not and regardless of whether the game is launched from the "Games" menu or the "Recent" list.

I've now reverted to the version I previously used, which is "ppsspp-v0.9.1-1627-g0a47509-android.apk", and with this everything is back to normal again.

So whatever causes this crash was added somewhere in between builds 1627 and 1657. Thus a short series of tests should be able to pinpoint it. (A binary halving test method should find and confirm it within 6 version tests.)

Best regards: dlanor

I've now performed the pinpointing tests I mentioned in my previous post, and have determined that the last working build was 1640. That one works fine, while 1641 crashes like all the others since then (including the latest build 1660).

I did not test every single build between 1627 and 1660, but used a binary halving method to reduce the number of tests to 1+log2 of the version count. And the number of available versions to test was further reduced by the fact that the buildbot didn't make Android binaries for every build.

Summary:

"ppsspp-v0.9.1-1640-g996e468-android.apk" works fine,
and the same goes for all tested earlier builds.

"ppsspp-v0.9.1-1641-gab759a9-android.apk" crashes at every game launch,
and the same goes for all tested later builds.

For me every build since 1615 the emu crashes before the splash screen of emulator. My device is Xperia Mini ST15i. I've tried everything possible to make it work(wipe cache and dalvik, clear data) but with no success. I hope for a fix.


RE: ppsspp build 9 oktober 2013 is force close on my android - GuilhermeGS2 - 10-10-2013 12:13 AM

I'll test the rev 1640 here. I hope it works.

That must be a different problem from the one I've been testing, since every recent build (including the latest build 1660) installs and launches correctly on my Android devices, with both splash screen and the subsequent menus perfectly normal.

It's only when launching a game that builds 1641 through 1660 crash here.

I'm fairly certain that it will work, if the problem you had is similar to mine, in that the crashing occurred when trying to launch a game.

But even with that working in build 1640, you may still have some other problems, depending on your Android device.

eg:
My OUYA can use build 1640 with good results in all games I've tried, but my DMTech Tablet shows black screen for several of those games when using the same PPSSPP build, so for that device I've reverted to a MUCH older build, to restore graphics functionality (currently using build 1463). Possibly it could work well with some newer versions too, but I haven't bothered to test that yet. (I don't normally use the tablet for games, since I have the OUYA for that.)

Working fine again with rev 1640. Smile But I didn't see any strange issue yet, as graphics glitches.

Good, then your results are similar to what I get on my OUYA.

On the OUYA I only rarely get graphics problems, such as in the Disgaea 2 intro, where I have to first disable buffered rendering and then enable it again, to get rid of some flickering. But this kind of graphics issue is to be expected for a few games in any emulator under active development.

The DMTech Tablet I mentioned has more serious issues, causing it to black-screen for games that work fine on the OUYA, unless I revert to a very old PPSSPP build. But that says more about the low quality of my cheap tablet than it does about PPSSPP... Confused

Even so, I hope that future builds will fix some of those problems too, so that the latest PPSSPP builds can be used on all Android devices, even though the cheapest ones will never perform as well as quality devices.
