psp Castlevania - The Dracula X Chronicles - ULES00841
Hi guys, thanks for this great works.

I wanted to play to Castlevania - Symphony of the Night.
It's a part of the PSP game "Castlevania - Dracula X Chronicles".
Code is ULES00841.

So I downloaded JPCSP "revision 3426" and the game launched, magical !

But "Symphony of the Night" need to be unlocked, to be "earned" as an item during the first game.

So I downloaded savegame files here :
http://www.gamefaqs.com/psp/938141-castl...cles/saves

But there's no way, no saves work : there's a lot of weird numbers.
I tried to change the location in the emulator but no way.

So I earned the game "Symphony of the Night", and I launched it.
The intro cinematic launched, the musics are played, but it displays BLACK screen : there's no image.

I tried many settings, but useless.

Please : can you fix both of these problems ?
- Savegame files compatibility with the original PSP
- Symphony of the Night screen

If you need me for anything (game, savegame files, etc.), tell me ^^

Thx

If you had done your homework, a quick Google Search on "JPCSP Encrypted SAVEDATA" would have brought up this: http://www.emunewz.net/forum/showthread....3#pid10533. For the rest of your problems, you will need to post a log and screenshots. Learn how to create a log here and in case you didn't know, JPCSP can create screenshots by pressing F5 on the keyboard (assuming you have a Windows OS).

I already check the box "JPCSP Encrypted SAVEDATA", and the game crashes.

1 - "JPCSP Encrypted SAVEDATA" solves the problem of the save files
(ça résoud le problème des sauvegardes pas reconnues)

[Image: 785962ULES00841Shot1.png]


2 - The game displays lot of bugs
(le jeu présente de nombreux bugs d'affichage)

[Image: 619592ULES00841Shot2.png]

[Image: 273439ULES00841Shot3.png]

It blinks, maybe this is my config which is bad, I tried a lot
(Ca clignote, peut-être est-ce ma config qui est mauvaise, j'en ai essayé beaucoup)


3 - ATTENTION: Each sound effects are played twice, it's pretty painful
(ATTENTION : Chaque bruitage est joué en double, c'est assez pénible)


4 - The game is playable, but the pause menu does not appear (sometimes it appears, it depends on the settings)
(Le jeu est jouable, mais le menu de pause ne s'affiche pas (parfois il s'affiche, ça dépend des options cochées))

[Image: 481160ULES00841Shot5.png]


5 - After that, I try to launch Symphony of the Night.
The game selection screen displays properly.
(Après ça, j'essaye de lancer Symphony of the Night.
L'écran de sélection des jeux s'affiche correctement).

[Image: 817269ULES00841Shot6.png]

The start screen displays too.
(L'écran de départ s'affiche bien lui-aussi)

[Image: 986633ULES00841Shot7.png]


6 - But the screen of the selection of the savegame won't display.
Sometimes it does, it depends on my settings.
But settings used to play on the first game won't match for SOTN.
(Mais l'écran de sélection des sauvegardes ne s'affichera pas.
Parfois il le fait, mais ça dépend de la configuration.
Mais la configuration utilisée pour jouer au premier jeu ne correspond pas à celle de SOTN)

[Image: 452292ULES00841Shot8.png]


8 - At last, whatever the settings could be, the game is BLACK, it won't display.
(Enfin, quelle que soit la configuration, le jeu est NOIR, il ne s'affichera pas)

RE: Castlevania - The Dracula X Chronicles - ULES00841
I should downgrade my JPCSP ? ^^
Son, I'm dErP... I thought newer versions were better...

Ok, I'll try, but I hope a future version will work soon...

Thank you very much ! ^^

Argh, but 3225 hasn't got savedata encryption...

No problem, I will wait for a new version which will fix the problem (considering the speed of the new releases), I have the time...
