Trouble with Griffon Legend

Post by NiccaTales »

I’ve been trying to play The Griffon Legend on my PSP, but whenever I try to start up the game, all I get is a black screen. Could someone tell me what I’ve been doing wrong?

Did you try waiting a bit more? I don't have a PSP, but I've tested this game on an old, underpowered machine with low I/O speed, and indeed it can take 45 seconds loading on a black screen before the game starts (it looks like `BitmapRawDecoder::decodeFrame()` is a bit slow). The PSP is maybe in a similar case.

Yes, I did wait for a while at first. After ten minutes, there still wasn’t any difference. It was still a solid black screen. :/

OK, thank you. I can reproduce this problem with the PPSSPP emulator.

I don't think I'll be able to fix this problem myself, but I've submitted a bug report for this:
