T.O.M.E. patch for the PSP Go with HBL revision 50
People who have been following the progress of the Half-Byte Loader will be happy to learn that we have been making good progress over the past weeks. Revision 50 of the HBL feels pretty much stable to me, and I was able to run a (lightly modified) version of T.O.M.E. on the PSP Go.
T.O.M.E. is a great “text mode” rpg, available on many devices including the PSP. The graphics are very minimal, but the quests and RPG feeling beat lots of commercial games.
For people who want to update the source directly, all I did was change
in the file main-psp.c
The reason is that when running in the HBL environment, the PSP has a bit less free ram than a “regular” hacked PSP. Nothing serious, but still enough to fail with this specific game.
I want to thank Daddy32 for the T.O.M.E. port to the PSP, Davee for the HUGE improvement he’s brought to the HBL loading sequence, and psp-hacks.com (thanks a lot Greg!) for the PSP Go which helps me testing this stuff. And of course thanks to m0skit0 and ab5000 who made this possible in the first place 🙂
I am convinced that from now on we will see more and more games working on the PSP Go with HBL 🙂
I’m of course still trying to get Wagic to run with the HBL 🙂
