The only major downside is that the NPC versions of characters don't use your theme assignments.
Let's say I gave Banager the EXVS version of UNICORN. It'll play when I have my own Banager attack, but Banager in stage A-3 won't play that theme and use the game's version of UNICORN. --- "The 86 is a car that trains its driver." - Bunta Fujiwara
On the "non legal" PSP ( DLed ISO & Custom Firmware ), only ONE mp3 is shown... and it end non readable with some error message. On the Full legal PSP ( UMD & official 6.60 Firmware ), I still have only ONE mp3 showing, BUT it play fine. --- I'm a painter; blood is my ink and the world is my canvas.
Everyone having issues with the custom BGM feature beyond the aforementioned 'corrupt ID3 tag' problem is a filthy, dirty pirate who is an even filthier, dirtier PSP hacker. Works fine with a real UMD on an OFW PSP! Try not stealing the game maybe?
If you're referring to me, I have the UMD. I just figured out the problem that I have the animations off at the option settings. Thank you for your time and mostly for the accusations. Good day.
Cool, wasn't referring to any one person here, was speaking in general. But the point is you're not running the latest OFW... and are probably not on the latest OFW because you're on a CFW...which is still not legit. Why are we discussing this on GameFAQs?
So ah yes...the comment still has merit. Have a drink, on me. --- Things get damaged, things get broken... I thought we'd manage, but words left unspoken left us so brittle...
It's all about being on 6.60 in general, tested it out between a few friends
True that. Same problem with the Masoukishin 2 video files used during the finisher attacks, which would sometimes play and sometimes would not. Probably has something to do with 6.60 fixing bugs in some of the I/O related PSP system APIs, or maybe a tweak/tune-up for the maximum achievable I/O throughput or something. That kind of thing is difficult (if in some cases not impossible) to hot-patch through the loaders in older custom firmware, which is why it can (and will...) break down so easily.
Furthering the discussion: I've been seeing posts related to sampling rate and bit rates, but has anyone checked variable/averaged vs. true constant bit rate? All variations of variable bit rate used to be a pain with old MP3 decoders to some degree, so maybe this is a resurfacing of those issues? (Certainly VBR vs. CBR could explain the random speed up & slow down I've seen mentioned at least once...)
