Star Ocean: Second Evolution

RE: Star Ocean: Second Evolution
So it looks like I am having the same problem as The Randomizer was having in earlier pages where only dialogue boxes were appearing, though my game never crashes. I have it on non-buffered rendering and hardware transform on as someone advised, but no help. The FMV are perfect, battles are perfect, menu screens like character menu and start screen are perfect, but in the game all I can see are text boxes and the cartoon of Claude when he is the one talking. I have tried multiple versions and builds of ppsspp; 9.6, 9.5 and even 9.1. These emulators either stop working shortly after loading a game (sometimes by changing settings I can get them to work) or they all have failed to show these graphics - even the newest ones. I've tried other emulators, and one showed the missing graphics but was so bugged it was literally unplayable, and the rest just failed period. I have tried almost every option to change video settings on ppsspp and nothing seems to work, I've updated drivers, scanned my disk and repaired any errors, and have no clue what else I can do. It seems like my old laptop wants to render the graphics in a certain way, and the ppsspp emulator doesn't have the option for changing a setting to solve this problem.

Any suggestions? Either on how to tool ppsspp's video settings, or maybe modify my laptops video settings to work more properly? I've got Windows Vista 32-bit, and if its relevant my video card is (i think) ATI Mobility Radeon X1400. I'm not that adept with computers so maybe I am missing something obvious.... any help would be greatly appreciated. Star Ocean First Departure works fine btw. Also, reading through I see some have had better luck with the older builds - where can I find those?

Right, sorry, I should have been more specific. When I mentioned I had tried multiple builds of ppsspp versions 9.6 and 9.5 I was referring to the ones that are available at that site. While I have not actually tried every single one available there, I've tried enough to believe that 9.5 and 9.6 builds aren't what I need. I've heard some people mention that the version 8 builds resolved this issue I'm having, so I was actually hoping to find a site where I could find those versions of the ppsspp emulator. Unless I am missing something, that build site you gave the link for only has down to 0.9.5-1-g3abeb62, which I have tried.

RE: Star Ocean: Second Evolution
* maybe u can google the stable old
versions, like this one http://www.up4s.com/3brdxsrjq0fv/PPSSPP-0.8.1.apk.html

* or in buildbot page, press ctrl + F
* a search bar should appear, then enter 0.8 ?

RE: Star Ocean: Second Evolution
That link was for an Android build, and the ctrl+F search was of no help. I guess you are right though, I will have to search for a site out there that has some of the older windows builds. Thanks for trying to help though.
Getting close to giving up though.
If any1 else knows where I could find those older builds, or if they have one of the older 0.8 versions let me know, maybe someone could email it to me or something.... ohh well, to the search engine I go.

RE: Star Ocean: Second Evolution
Sorry in advance if I am necro-bumping.

I am using current version (0.9.7) and I did notice the text-delay issue also. After unchecking "Lazy texture caching", "Retain changed textures", and "Low quality splines and bezier curves", the problem went away.

Also, I had to manually enable frameskip (1) and enabled the Auto Frameskipping option... now Im getting fluid fps in all areas of the game, upscaled 2x, with 4x AA.

using nexus 7 2012, and win 7 x64 (runs constantly 60 FPS locked.); works great good job devs ^^

RE: Star Ocean: Second Evolution
Is this game fully beatable or does it crash later on in the game? I thought I saw some people state that it can be completed.

RE: Star Ocean: Second Evolution
Game broken in 0.9.7.2 x64, game loads, but no amount of changing rendering modes fixes the black screen, audio only. Game worked perfectly fine in 0.9.6.

Edit: Okay, the menu and title screen show up, but when a save is loaded, nothing but a blank screen, but there is audio.

Just 0.9.7.2, no other numbers after it. And like I said, it worked fine on 0.9.6 without any issues. Huh

Edit: Tried 0.9.7.2-287, works now, looks like something broke the game in 0.9.7.2, so yeah, wonder what the issue was.

Crashing on Game Load
Alright, so I got the latest version of PPSSPP a couple days ago. I loaded up Star Ocean: Second Evolution and played it for about an hour and a half without a problem. I entered Krosse Cave, started exploring, got about halfway and the emulator crashed. I thought this was a normal thing and took a break from it, confident since I had saved it fairly close to where I crashed.

I started PPSSPP up again today, hit the button to load my game on the emulator. It switched over and immediately crashed. I tried it again, it did it again.

I'm not quite sure if it's a problem with the game or the emulator. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there maybe a fix out?

RE: Star Ocean: Second Evolution
P.R.Pendragon, are you using the latest git build or the latest stable version? The latest git build may work better. Crashing shouldn't necessarily be normal.

Also, try disabling fast memory in settings.

RE: Star Ocean: Second Evolution
Does the game fully work now without bugs?
And can someone share a completed savegame with me? I would like to play on harder difficulty but dont feel like playing easy mode.
