    psp FRONTIER 1337 - version 0.3.0

    FRONTIER 1337 is a port for PSP from the 1993 Atari version of the game "FRONTIER - Elite II".
    For those who still don't know this game, here is the intro sequence :

    Here is the changelog for this new version :
    • 30% speed improvement!
    • Choice between fullscreen and original resolution at the begining.
    • Select button is now also used to switch between radar and missiles.
    • The game engine FPS can be show/hide by pressing right trigger plus select button.
    • Now, you have to press CROSS button to pass the police arrest.
    • Hold R trigger for moving the mouse cursor slowly (thanks JLF65 from DCEmu for the help).
    • Hold R trigger and press D-pad UP to force mis-jump.
    • Brand new PSP splashscreen and icon.

    As always, for a better framerate result, set the level of shape detail to 'low' in the setup screen (start button), and disable things like 'Space dust, clouds etc' and 'Background stars'...

    Don't try to change commander's name when you are saving your game. If you want to change it, rename the file in the savs folder.

    You can find useful informations about the game on the official website, or about FRONTIER - Elite II in general at Frontierverse


    Just unpack/copy FRONTIER_1337 folder to MS_ROOT/PSP/GAME
    If you want sound, download the MUSIC and SFX packages, and place them in the FRONTIER_1337/data folder.


    Analog-stick - Move the cursor through the screen
    Hold R trigger while moving the mouse cursor for a more slow and precise movment
    SQUARE - Used like the left mouse clic to select things with the cursor
    CROSS - Used like the right mouse clic + "p" key to get through the police arrest thing
    Hold CROSS + Analog-stick - Roll the vessel
    Hold CROSS + SQUARE - Fire laser beam
    Hold CROSS + D-pad UP - Zoom-in with the camera in external view
    Hold CROSS + D-pad DOWN - Zoom-out with the camera in external view
    D-pad - Rotate the camera in external view, and make ravel the galactic chart or the stockmarket list
    TRIANGLE - Rear propulsion to increase speed
    CIRCLE - Front propulsion to decrease speed
    L and R triggers - Choose the functions that where directly available on PC with F1 to F10 keys
    L + R - Validate the choosen function
    Start - Go to the option screen
    Select - Switch between radar and missiles
    R + D-pad UP - Force mis-jump
    R + Select - Show/hide game engine FPS


    The sourcecode is included in the package. Use Minimalist PSPSDK to compile the game.
    For unknown reasons, the game only compiles with the 0.10.0 version. If someone wants to take a look, the error is located in the screen.c function void Screen_Init(void).
    Your computer must have loads of RAM to compile the huge generated C file.

    I'm trying to get the Frontier port to install on my PSP slim. I'm connecting the PSP to my pc using USB, then extracting Frontier by selecting all files in winzip and extracting directly to the savedata file in the PSP. I can see the Frontier1337 file when I open the savedata file from my PC when connected to the PSP via USB. When I go to the Game/Save Data Utility file on my PSP's home screen, it just has 3 "Corrupted Data" files.
    Please help

    Hi, as said in the readme.txt within the frontier package, you have to unpack the FRONTIER_1337 folder to MS_ROOT/PSP/GAME (like every homebrew in fact).
    I hope it helps !

    Complete noob question I know but where's MS_ROOT?

    MS_ROOT = root of your Memory Stick
    So basicaly you put frontier into the game directory. Very simple. But from the questions you are asking me, I can tell that you don't have a custom firmware in your PSP and that it will not work. So I suggest you should read some basic tuto on the internet or search for answers on this very forum. It's easy to find and I will not explain to you how to "jailbreak" your hardware. Regards.
