No, work of SAGA engine games without voices is not supported. Of course, you may submit such feature request.

SAGA games should now work when no voice files are present with the latest SVN version :)

I'm having the same problem with the 0.11 PSP ported version.
Was the "sfx.res fix" added to the psp port?

there is two differnt file sizes for the file sfx.res in the english IHNM. I believe this is the problem why people can run the game on their PCs, but on the PSP it still gives, the cant find reasources error.

Yes, this has been fixed. The engine no longer checks for the size or the MD5 of sfx.res, same as it does for the speech files. The most probable cause that it can't find the game's resources is the lack of implementation for the common File::exists() function

Just checked it: the File::exists() function is a stub for PSP in the common file system code for PSP (it always returns true), which means that no SAGA game can currently run under PSP...

This is a problem which can probably be fixed the same way it has been fixed for AmigaOS - I'll talk with the person who wrote the file system code

Well, this problem is now fixed for the PSP, but there are other ports where it still occurs...

Hello md5,

When you say that the problem is fixed for the PSP, which version are we talking about? I downloaded the latest PSP port and I still have that problem.

Thank you!

What you need is a daily build. Or wait till 0.11.1 is released (in less than 2 weeks).
