    psp PSPHUGO: PC Engine Emulator for PSP v1.3.0 (CD MP3)



    Hi All,

    For those who haven't seen previous version Hu-Go is a famous emulator
    of NEC PC Engine console, running on many system such as Linux and Windows.
    (see http://www.zeograd.com/ for details)

    PSPHugo is a port on PSP of one latest version of Hu-Go.

    What's new then in this version ?

    - Audio Track support for CD-ROM
    (support only MP3 format with stereo 16 bits samples
    at 22k or 44k rate)
    - CD-ROM TOC file format support.
    - Using TurboRip, ripped CD can now be used directly with PSP-Hugo !
    (see README file for explanations)
    - Increase PSP clock speed when playing mp3 CD tracks
    - Disable sound while saving states & screenshots
    (to avoid scratchy noise for few seconds)
    - Fix sleep mode issue
    - Replace SDL sound engine by direct PSP audio stuff
    to improve performances
    - Fix issue when loading more than one CD image
    - New backgrounds

    How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.

    You may find here a version TurboRip to convert your original CD
    to a format compatible with PSP-Hugo :
    http://zx81.zx81.free.fr/public/win32TurboRipV100.rar

    Please have a look to the README file to see how to proceed ...

    CD Audio track reading is very CPU consuming, so if you run CD-rom games
    with audio tracks, PSP-Hugo will automatically increase the clock frequency
    while playing MP3 tracks to 300 Mhz. (You may modify this parameter in the settings menu).

    Sources are included, and this package is under the GNU public licence v2
    read COPYING.txt file for more information about it.

    See http://zx81.zx81.free.fr/


    Enjoy,

    Zx.

    What an amazing suprise! Thanks again zx for your hard work and dedication to the psp scene. Your work is appreciated very much!

    I never tried Dracula X on my psp with any PC-engine emu, but I think it's time I give it a shot .

    thanks . CD Audio support is not really accurate, so you may see delay between characters speaking and their voice ... It's good enough for beat them all like games, but may be not accurate enough for RPG

    Wow, a nice surprise indeed.

    I thought this project was abandoned. I definately have to recharge my PSP. Haven't touched it this year, i guess.

    Thank you.

    its always nice to see emulators get updated, as much as i like homebrew im an emulation fan more than any.

    (pity that snes emulation on PSP is a dodo)

    i've got a problem with turborip, whenever I run it i get the error:-

    ( 6) Error opening Registry for "Hardware\Devicemap\SCSI\ SCSI Port 0"
    Error = 2
    portNumber = 0

    think its something to do with the CD ASPI (im using vista)?

    any alternative solutions to automate conversion of CDs into iso/cue/mp3?

    Unhappy crash!

    Cannot load .TOC files, system crashes.

    I am assuming that I am to load the whatever_game.toc file and not track02.iso.

    I've ripped original CDs with TurboRip as specified. All Trackxx.iso / .mp3 files in same direcory as .toc under whatever_game sub-dir under "cd-roms" dir (.cue files too).

    If I load .ISO file, some games do run, but no music.

    Crashes every time I load the .TOC and I'm a complete loss how to work around this. Any ideas?

    thx



    (Running 4.05 M33-2 on psp-2000)

    Thank you very much for continuning to work on this! I've only tried six CD games so far, but I've been very impressed at how they've run. This has got to be the best pce cd emulation on the psp so far. Unfortunately, it seems like the audio code is still a bit buggy. Most emulators have a problem with audio/visual syncing, but so far this one looks to be pretty far off on a consistent basis. And then, there are times where the CD audio continues while computer generated bgm is also playing... This is particularly annoying in Y's after the intro plays, and then the game starts... but the intro music continues to loop in the background behind the game music.

    Also, there are some pretty heavy graphic glitches in the cut scenes in Lords of the Rising Sun.

    But, honestly, thank you SO much for continuing your work on this emulator!

    This update was quite a surprise... I was under the impression that this was no longer being worked on. But yeah, I'm having the same problem as the guy a few posts back. Whenever I try to load the .toc file, the emu just crashes to pieces. I've used both 'TocFixer' and 'TurboRip' to get as accurate an image as possible; I even used the .toc data off of the Necstasy site, but no luck. For the record, the only game that I tried was 'Seirei Senshi Spriggan'. If I load just the ISO, it works, but... no music

    Well, I guess in the meantime, I'll just keep using the $#@!bersome-but-99.99%-perfect 'Yuna-swap trick' until I get this issue all figured out.

    i haven't tried turborip on vista because i don't own such "operating system" ... it seems it doesn't work .

    TOC file should have the format generated by turbo rip with TurboRip.exe /PCEP /RS=22050 options.

    Have a look in doc folder of the zip archive for an example. All audio tracks should have a name like :

    01.mp3 if the track is the track number 1 in the TOC.

    Yes, there is no synchronization between voice (cd audio track) and image, so you may encounter very strange issue ...

    that's strange i will have a look on this issue. I'm playing only one track at a time so it might be a bug in audio / music threads.

    PSP Hugo support only toc files generated by TurboRip with the parameters /PCEP /RS=22050. Without those parameters, or without TurboRip it might just don't work.

    90% of the games i've tried are working fine using TurboRip with /PCEP /RS=22050
