Missing text layer in Beetle PSX

I’m playing Vagrant Story in Beetle PSX. I played a lot last month but had to pause it for a while.

Now some of the text is not being displayed, like target names and item description. Everything was working fine before.

Anyone has any idea of what might be happening?

I am running it on Archlinux so I am thinking that a recent update might have caused it? I also changed my monitor and have a ultra wide monitor now, so maybe that (?), I don’t know.

Is there any configuration for hiding displaying layers in bettle PSX?

Ok rolling back the last beetle psx upgrade solved it for me.


I’m having the exact same problem. Could you please tell where you found the rollback file(s) and where did you overwrite them? Thanks!

Could I trouble one of you guys to open a ticket (preferably with some screenshots explaining the issue) here: https://github.com/libretro/beetle-psx-libretro/

It would also be useful if you could pinpoint which commit caused the issue.

Are you using Arch? In my case I check what was the previous version of beetle-psx that I was using by reading the log /var/log/pacman.log (open the file and search the last line that beetle-psx, check the versions). I found the following line:

[2020-09-13T10:42:53-0400] [ALPM] upgraded libretro-beetle-psx-hw (2362-1 -> 2383-1)

Then I installed the previous version back using my cache:

sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/libretro-beetle-psx-hw-2362-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

You can search for the files available in /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ to find the correct file.

If you are not using Arch then I don’t know. Try finding your distro equivalent of version 2362.

@hunterk I will try posting on github.
