I'm trying to find out install game data (using "Install Data" option on some games) actually does anything if using an ISO on CFW. I've been doing a bit of reading up on this and keep getting conflicting reports. I know there are special "enhancements" if you install game data for certain games. The game I see talked about the most is Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. If you install game data, the models of weapons and armor show up without having to press . Just trying to get a solid answer on this as I have never really seen a difference.

Also, I've been reading that you CAN'T install game data with CFW as it errors out. I don't have enough room on my memory card to test this myself, so I thought I'd ask.

NOTE: If not allowed to talk about this stuff, I will wipe topic. Please dont ban me.

Well, generally, install data allows the PSP to read from UMD and Memory stick, thus shorter load times.
However, in CFW, you already play off MS so it doesn't really matter, unless...

...the game has some sort of bonus for installing data, like how Peace Walker wouldn't play Codec Audio (just text) unless you had Data installed (luckily you had the option of a smaller file on your MS)

    @BigOnYa,
    and the visual aspect of the game is quite crude (the sprite that looks best is that of the protagonist just because he is a stickman with sunglasses)

    There is a bullets behaviour you assign to your character, that makes the code easier, under "behaviours"
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    i meant that when the character is pointing to the right, the bullets spawn where they should, but when he is on the right, they move to the right but the spawn point is incorrect
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Itch.io has lots of free assets also. Under the bullets behavior tab, there is a "rotate bullets" option, can try that. Or in the code can try
    - fire bullet Player.X(PlayerDirection)

    That's cool tho, I'm proud of you going back to it, not giving up. It is difficult at first to learn, but fun once you get the hang of it. I think I've watched every tutorial video there is, but I still struggle sometimes to get stuff to work right. But gotta keep trying dif things, and eventually you will get it right.
