oh wow i never knew that the compression for fpse was the same as the psp one. i never noticed that both are pbp files until you mentioned it.
anyway i tried moving my psp eboot converted file into fpse and voila it worked! all the sounds now finally play from the character select music to the stage musics. framerate is a lot worse though (most likely due to the musics playing). i dont know why the other compressed file didnt work. they are both the same size and they are both from the exact same rip. i tried the bin cue too before for the older versions of fpse and sound never worked then either. very strange.
now i just need to get tobal to work. just a quick question, i noticed since both fpse and psp use the same compression format (pbp), can i play games that are multi disc and compressed into one eboot from psp conversion. for example i have final fantasy vii 3 disc combined into one whole eboot.pbp on my psp. would the game still play without switching disc on fpse?
thanks for all the help thus far. i really appreciate it!
