PSP: Nightly build does not start on physical PSP-1000

Reported by: lolbot-iichan Owned by: rsn8887
Priority: blocker Component: Port: PSP
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:



  1. Download nightly build (e.g.
  2. Unpack it to ms0:/PSP/GAME/ of actual physical Memory Stick™
  3. Remove ms0:/scummvm.ini for a clear start
  4. Insert Memory Stick™ to actual physical PSP-1000
  5. Select ScummVM application and try to start it

ScummVM starts, game list is displayed

Screen is black, IO indicator blinks repeatedly for several seconds, then console silently powers off

ms0:/PSP/GAME/psp-master-d67b16a5/SCUMMTRACE.TXT file is created with just a single line:

Error in static void PSPPixelFormat::convertFromScummvmPixelFormat(const Graphics::PixelFormat*, PSPPixelFormat::Type&, PSPPixelFormat::Type&, bool&): Unknown bpp[4] in pixeltype. Reverting to 8bpp

I don't know how to enable debug logs on PSP, adding debuglevel=11 to scummvm.ini does not work for me.

Stable build works fine.

I can reproduce this on my real PSP-2000.

First commit that introduces this crash is this one:

The commit before works great, with correct mousepointer and all.
