Bug details: ScummVM doesn't start, crashes on start.

Your OS:
Sony Playstation Portable
Build: 1005 1st GEN white
OS: 6.61 LME-2.3
CPU/RAM: 333MHz/333MHz

The 2.2.0 version of ScummVM worked perfectly.

Deleted it completely. Also scummvm.ini and the Saves folder on ms0:
Copied 2.7.0 into the PSP/GAME folder and treid to start. Screen went black and after a couple seconds I landed back on the desktop(of the PSP). There seems to be a change in 2.7.0, that the PHAT PSP can't handle.

Could you try with 2.6.1 instead? 2.2 is a really old version.

I tried the 2.6.1 and it starts.
Mass adding Games worked, too.
The 2.6.1 seems to be the last working version for the PHAT PSP 1005 with 6.61 LME-2.3.
The changes made in 2.7.0 crash ScummVM on the PSP.

Monkey Island 2 starts, Larry Leisure Suite 7 does not (crashes back to PSP Menu).

I tested both 2.7.0 and 2.7.1 on my real hardware PSP slim and they work fine.

It could be a problem due to PSP phat hardware having less RAM? I don’t have a phat model to test.

According to ccawley’s tests this might be due to loading from fonts.dat. In future versions, it might help to allow a smaller fonts-small.dat to reduce memory footprint on machines with less than 64MB RAM.
