Retroarch PSP games black screen

Recommended Posts

Retroarch is not working with PPSSPP. When I try to open a game it just goes to a black screen.  When running in debug this is what I get.  Any help is appreciated.

For the PPSSPP core you need a PPSSPP folder in your \Retroarch\system\ folder which contains all sorts of stuff like shaders, icons and other stuff which is available as a download if you look around. Unfortunately I cannot remember where I got all mine from, it's been a while.

I would suggest just using the stand alone version of PPSSPP anyways, it is in much better shape. That isn't to say the RA core is bad at all, it is fairly good but the stand alone is just way better.

I do have all of those files in the correct location but i still black screen.  The games run fine when i use the stand alone PPSSPP emulator. However when I run PPSSPP in launchbox it crashes.  Ideally I would like to get all my stuff working within launchbox and retroarch is working "better" than PPSSPP at the moment for that.

PPSSPP should work just fine with Launchbox, it works perfectly fine for me.

If you can post some screenshots of your emulator config screens in Launchbox maybe there is something off in your setup.

I have always had issues with PPSSPP in RA. After lots of headaches I ditched it for the Standalone PPSSPP. It works flawlessly with LB/BB.

Did you try using standalone PPSSPP.

Just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction regarding this. I followed the Unbroken Software, LLC tutorial and placed the recommended ppge_atlas.zim file in my retroarch > systems > PPSSPP folder along with some other stuff:

image.thumb.png.5696dcef762f3ed3d4059f9ce7958ee1.pngThough it launches games into a black screen, and when I press F1 to go into RA's menu it just has a white screen. I am interested in this possible shader problem and am wondering where the above-mentioned config file might be located. The only config file I have which mentions the PPSSPP is the retroarch-core-options.cfg file in RA's main directory: 

image.thumb.png.2d9613ac2464d8e95d37ae7defd14119.pngI know the PPSSPP standalone is better and I've had 100& success with it but would like to get the PPSSPP core going if I can.

The config file would be located in \Retroarch\config folder

I do not have a config file for the PPSSPP in my config folder.

Are there any config files saved in that folder even for other cores?

Also do you have save configuration on exit turned on in settings?
