I’ve been having a headache with the PPSSPP core as long as I’ve used RetroArch. It refuses to co-operate with me.
I can load the core just fine, and load the game just fine… but then… THIS happens:
Oh, and here’s the log for this BTW… https://pastebin.com/pQ9kMnzC
So what happens is, I will load one of the Tekken titles for PSP, and get through the menus and pick my character, and it shows the fight card… and it starts to play the level. You see the fighter intros in 3D and all… and then WHAM this crazy graphics jumble occurs. It even completely freeze-crashes RA, so that log? it just ends abruptly.
Now here’s the REAL KICKER - After the D3D11 upgrade in 1.7.2 of RA or so, this problem had completely disappeared for me. yaaaay. I even have that install in another folder and it runs beautifully.
Except I did a fresh install of 1.7.3 because of some other issues, and now it’s back.
Problem is, even copying the exact same settings from the working version over does not fix the problem. The settings, the core overrides, EVERYTHING. I even copied the core .dll I was using over…
I went through every setting I could think of side-by-side with both versions running and it looks identical to me! Vulkan, D3D, OpenGL - they all give me this result.
I’m about to pull my hair out with this problem, because I know it’s something incredibly stupid that I’m not seeing.
Someone out there has got to have an answer for this Please help me…
