PPSSPP stopped working



  • Rpi 4, Recalbox 7.1.1

    Today PPSSPP stopped working. Each time I try to run a game, there is the black recalbox screen with the pacman ghosts and nothing else happens. After 1 mn, I go back to the list of PSP games.
    I have added a new game and thought the gamelist.xml was corrupted. I deleted it and recreated it but no success.
    Any idea to fix this ?

    Thanks,

  • Thanks for your reply. However I do not understand how it can helps.
    Do you suggest I remove all the media?
    Do you suggest also to check the game files?

    None of my psp game works any more.

    @holmes You don't need to remove the media, you just need to update the gamelists correctly, corrupted gamelists can cause crashes, and you claim that you had a problem with the gamelist after adding a game.
    Is that the solution? I can't guarantee, but this is one of the possibilities, I don't know what you changed, I don't believe that adding a game affects the others, so, let's try to discard the possibilities.

    Is only the PSP having problems? Are the other systems working correctly?
    Are you using the default theme?
    Are you running on a 4k TV?
    If you delete the new game, do the others work?
    Did you check the format of the ROM you added?



  • Thanks for your suggestions.
    I solved the issue through a reinstallation.
    Means I had somehow corrupted somethings.



  • Hi,
    it's interesting that I've got same problem related by "holmes", but in my case, a new reinstalation did not solve the issue. Everytime I run a PSP game, the system stays in blank screen for a 3 o 4 seconds, and then goes back to the list of PSP games.
    I've looked the log and I see an "exit code 250!", but I don't know the meaning of this error code.

    I'm using Recalbox last version 7.1.1, on a Rpi4 4GB, mounted in the Retroflag NESPi4 case, and using a SSD 480GB to start the system. I'm not using any SD. As output I use a Samsung TV Series6 4K by HDMI.

    Rest of systems are working fine, even Dreamcast and N64, both at full speed. It's fantastic. The only problem is related to the PSP games.

    I have beed using Recalbox in the last years, and for example, in version 6 DragonBlaze, those same PSP rom started normaly and I can play them, without any special configuration. In fact, I've tested them with old my Rp3+ and run great.

    In the mean time, I've modified some adjustments, but no one has solved the situation:
    a) Leave in Recalbox only PSP roms in the share\roms folder.
    b) Delete the gamelist.xml.
    b) Modify the videomode, general and psp, using the 720p mode, as CEA 4 HDMI.
    c) Reduce the GPU memory of the raspberry from 480 to 320MB, in order to increase the main available memory.
    d) I've set both original themes including in the installation pack, and nothing changed.

    In my humble opinion, there is a issue related to the videomode or even the memory, but I'm not getting the point.

    Could you please let me know some ideas to fix this problem??? I don't know what else to do...

    Thanks,
    Luis

    In my humble opinion, there is a issue related to the videomode or even the memory, but I'm not getting the point.

    I'm not a developer, but, as far as I understand, you're right, the PPSSPP usually has problems with the videomode and the lack of memory, but an RPi4 with 2gb of memory already has enough memory for that, so, the problem in this case it must be the videomode.

    As output I use a Samsung TV Series6 4K by HDMI.

    Rpi4 has a known bug in the detection of 4k TVs, it will be fixed in the next version:

    Since your TV is 4k, I believe your problem is directly related to this.
    I recommend you be patient and wait for the next version.
