Broken Sword 1 & 2

Post by tadsg »

Hi,

Is there anyway you can compress the two games and still have it working on the PSP? I can fit them onto my memory card but it takes about 2 GB (1 for each game)

Also is it just my bs1 or does george go tranparent inside the cafe? (right at the start)

Thanks.

If you download the scummvm tools you can convert all the audio into ogg format which will save some space. They are still going to take up quite a bit of room but you may be able to get it down below 1GB for the pair.

Yes, that is to be expected, these are command-line tools. Read the included README

I invested in an 8gb card these Christmas and boy, it sure has been worth it so far.

Just had to make sure to format it in Fat32 with a 32 Kb cluster size to speed things up.

If memory serves me, the speech and music files have to be in "SPEECH" and "MUSIC" folders inside the folder you point compress_sword1 to. Could that be the problem?

Okay thanks i've done that and its worked thank you.

But now i have another problem I've converted the bs2 files and it works fine but when I get to the scene where i meet André at the cafe he goes to sit down and the psp screen goes black (thats normal) but then the music cuts off and nothing it just freezes and turns itself off.

I've checked the files they are all there its just not working though.

I'm running a PSP with CFW:5.00m33-4

Any ideas whats wrong?
