      Nowea 03/19/90 - 11/23/2022   11/25/22

      On November 23rd 2022, Nowea, a prominent member of this community, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. He was a good man, a close friend to many of us, loved helping others with games and sharing his passion for gaming with anyone that would listen. To help his family with the unexpected costs of his passing, a charity stream is being planned. The link can already be accessed if anyone wish to help out: https://streamlabs.com/llandrastall/tip He will be missed dearly.

Having trouble with the installation

Hey all, I'm trying to get this set up, and I can't get the patching software to work right. It seems like I'm doing something wrong with UMDGen. I drag and drop the folders like the readme specifies, select replace all, and a loading bar appears as if it is doing something; I then save the (allegedly) altered file as a .cso on my psp, but when I open the file, no changes are evident. I haven't even been able to get the banner to change by replacing the image file. Is there a video guide somewhere, or a magic spell, or something?

Just to check, your psp is patched to be able to run bootleg games?

If so, try opening the new cso file with umdgen again and check the modified dates of the files you replaced, it should be recent instead of 10 years ago, then make sure you're running the right cso file. You can also try saving the file as iso, some games have problems in cso format.

If you're using discord, you can join and see if anyone else had that problem

I tried it again, paying attention to the dates this time. They didn't change. So, I dragged over the files, got the prompt to replace all duplicates, and then nothing happens. UMDgen is ver. 4.

My psp is homebrew enabled, it already has a bunch of stuff on it.

Got it working, for some reason my psp only recognized the changes on a .cso; it wouldn't recognize a .iso under any circumstances that I could find.

Well that was strange, but as long as it works. In any case, feel free to drop in the discord if you want to talk about the game.
