It seems that the only way to get an English version copy of Brave Fencer Musashi running on a PSP is to use a plugin called POPSLoader. POPSLoader loads the EBOOT.PBP using previous firmware versions; when running BFM, results may vary depending on which firmware version you use (according to this
). Most of the time, the game just freezes after the first scene of the opening cutscene; instances of this includes trying to run the game on current firmware.Problem:
POPSLoader is nice and all, but it's more convenient (and less distracting during gameplay) to have the game running at full capacity without the aid of a plugin helper. What exactly is preventing the game from running on the current firmware/custom firmware? What causes the game to freeze up? Is there a way to edit the game's code to make it run properly on the current PSP firmware?
To the mods: This doesn't seem to be getting much attention here. Should I move this to ROM Hacking Discussion?
