Just a random thought, but would it be possible to modify the game to trade A & S rank weapons to other players. It's currently limited to C & B Rank only at the little counter in the cafe. Let me be clear, I'm not asking someone to do this, (as much as it would be awesome) I'm just asking if it's possible.

Can't remember the exact setup, but at some point I could play on multi-mode with Windows 7 or 8 (different timeframes ofc). Never tried while I was on 10.

Today on Win 7: eternal loading after selecting a mission (solo) on 2 builds, lastest and a not-so-old nightly. A socket error happened, dunno which. Probably it's a wireless emulation bug, I can't see any logic on Nivulous "fix" other than lucking out with a functioning setup-build combo.

Yeah, we didn't see why it would work either, but apparently it did for him. That's why I hope someone would try it just to see if they can reproduce it. And if it works, it would be useful to have the working copy uploaded somewhere or to notify the developer.

This is kind of a weird question, but would it be possible to remove the Fanta Logo from the clothes that have it? I really like the Fanta Custom Dress outfit but it's really annoying seeing product placement on my character.

Also I think my save file is corrupted... I use the save state function in PPSSPP and now I can't save over the slot my main is in. This happened before and I deleted my previous character, but I'd really like to not have to do that. Is there a solution?

I don't think it's possible to remove the Fanta graphic, unless they develop a tool to edit the textures in game, which at that point, I'd be all for a full high res conversion. Lol Also, it means that you saved your game before that save state. Load your game normally, without loading a save state, and you should be able to save.

I could have sworn I read they needed to do texture replacement to complete the translation, though admittedly that could have been PSO2. I know Dolphin has runtime texture swapping but I'm not sure if the PPSSPP devs could add such a feature.

And I feel dumb....

If you play on PPSSPP, it now supports texture replacement packs as explained here: http://forums.ppsspp.org/showthread.php?tid=18963
From the sounds of it, just turning on dumping and then loading your character with the costume should produce the file somewhere, then you can edit it and place it in the replacement location.

Wow, nice. This is exactly what I wanted :D

Now I just have to edit it and make the texture look nice. >->

I feel like it'd be almost impossible to do a full HD retexture that doesn't rely on stock photos, but I would certainly welcome a PSP2iHD. The only question is, would increasing the resolution increase loading times? They're already pretty bad as-is.

The loading screens look hard-coded, since you can speed them. High-resolution textures would probably cause stuttering or crashs if you go over the game/emulator limit.

That is probably fair. I don't know enough about the game/PPSSPP's limits to say. I was also curious about a possible 60fps cheat, I know other games have that, but usually they cause incredible broken-ness.

As for translations and textures, some banners and what-nots are images instead of text, so you need to create a new, translated image and swap it. More work, maybe it's harder/easier than text, but doing this result in a competent final product.

I searched a lot for a 60fps cheat and what I tried, even from PSP2, didn't work on PPSSPP at that time :/
