Title: Can anybody help me?
Post by: Oxbow33 on October 29, 2010, 11:16:02 pm
I'm currently running the psp version of the ur-quan masters (its v0.6.2) and I wanted to know if there was any way for me to install the "Kor-Ah De-Cleansing mod" on the psp version. I am a complete noob at stuff like this, and appreciate all the help I can get!
Here's a link to the psp version of the game, if you want to tinker with it http://www.megaupload.com/?d=GMYDZ7U6 (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=GMYDZ7U6)

Ehh, if I could figure out how to compile it for the PSP I could give it a shot.
I've tried before and failed plenty of times. The only things I've ever managed to compile for the PSP were the example programs that came with the sdk.

Yeah, i dont know anything about coding of any sort. I think important information is in "eboot.pbp" and that it can be extracted using the program "pbp unpacker", but thats where the knowladge ends. I LOVE this game, i'm just really bad at it, and cant beat it in the 2-3 year time limit.

The .pbp is a container format for the executable and the XMB graphics that pop up when you hover over it.

Maybe short of hex editing it, I don't know.

If I could figure out how to compile it properly or even where to find the source code to compile it in the first place then I could give it a honest shot.

Using pbp extractor, you find a file "data.psp", upon opening that up as a .txt, i managed to find mention of the actual game, although, nothing major, mabye that can be important? Sorry if im irritating you by contributing random ideas, i just really want to actually beat this game.

I already looked at it through a hex editor to see if I could find a way.
I just downloaded the PSP SDK and I'm gonna see how I fare.
Also testing uqm on my old dusty PSP...

Well I can't for the life of me even get vanilla UQM to compile with the setup exactly the way it's supposed to be.
As soon as I fix one error ten more pop up in its place, that gets so very infuriatingly frustrating.

So when I get some time off of work I'll contact Sharkus and see what he has to say about compiling it.

Thanks for your help so far! (almost) every other forum on the internet would just dismiss me as "another noob" and ignore the thread, and i really appreciate the willingness to help and overall respectful attitde this forum has!

Well I sent him a message November 8th, but I don't believe he'll answer a PM on the DCEmu board.

At the moment I'm looking for an e-mail, my google-fu has turned up a blog so I'll see how it goes.
