Help w/ DOSBOX emulator - crashes my PSP

Post by BrandeX » Sun Aug 04, 2013 3:44 pm

Hi, does anyone have a suggestion as to why my PSP can't run DOSBOX?
I get a dosbox error screen that looks something like this, which freezes the system:

Sorry it is so blurry, it's mostly useless info for debugging I think, at the top it says "Bus Error".
I have a PSP-2000 with 6.60 Pro-C2 and have tried every download of dosbox at viewtopic.php?f=47&t=11004

The crash/freeeze and error screen comes up immediately after clicking to load DOSBOX in the XMB.

Personally, I have never gotten DOSBOX to wok on my PSP-1000 or PSP-2000 so I just gave up. You could try downloading it from various sources by Google searching it and see if they work.

Casavult / else \ get Dosbox EasyNavigatorand i´m sure it works for you. Yes some apps may not work on fat-psp as well or as fast as on 64mb device. It may has some bugs with custom cpu settings or plugins.
For me all dosbox ver. and mods are working well with ofw^^

As eluded to in my post, every single version of dosbox I have ever tried gives that same error. It used to work back in the day when I ran Gen D3 CFW.

Try ME CFW?
GEN is 95% M33 (even if DaX was never properly credited) and ME is essentially a updated M33
if your 2k is not cIPL compatible then use LME as its the same just not permanent

I have never had that error,
tho I did use pspdosbox but never ever had it run any OS,
be cause of the keyboard I did nearly run win95 on it but again the keyboard was a bad shapes.
Can be a reason for,
1. All the dosbox here(wololo) are some what modded, (as I said "can")
2. Mabey your psp just rejects it.
3. Try it on a new "other psp"
but that's strange, the bottom codes show 000000"0 ---> 000000
Well any who, can't help you Mabey boch psp?!?!.
but I'm interested in that 0000 code lol.

Actually, it appears that my issue could be exactly the same as another user posted here: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=11762 last year. Someone linked a working DOSBOX build, but the file is no longer available on mediafire.

Are there any issues involved in flashing from a newer CFW back to an older CFW?

i added a lol smily because i wrote dosbox and edited post to link it to easy navigator .. which is the same link
Hope you got it now or soon.
Keep in mind if you like to boot a ms-win it can take very long time... some people wrote up to a hours even more! Pressing buttons while loading easyly make it crash.
