    Well ... i have 4.01 M-33 2 and i tried Klonoa and Digimon World 3 now and Klonoa is only black screen after sony logo and Digimon World has major bugs ...

    any way to fix this ?

    is there maybe a better working PSX emu for PSP than the official one ?

    well in the espalpsp readme it says i need 3.02 B but there is no A or B in the popsloader and with 3.02 it doesn't work ... whenever i change the room i get either black screen or psp shuts down ... but well i will try 3.71 ...

    Well if you have M33, 3.71 Pops is the best, I'd use that

    Well like i sayed didn't work with any version ...

    any idea if the kernel version i use has some effect ?

    and maybe the region ? my PSP is set german but the game is American ...

    the PSP itselfs is region free but what about the PSX emu stuff ? do i need to set my psp to American maybe ?

    I just remembered that sometimes if the folder name you keep it in is over 32 characters, it won't work. That worked for me.

    well i tried what i read elswere and used another id when compiling the psx game into eboot and it worked ... seems that with the original US id it won't work
    dunno if it was the JP id or whatever but with the other one it currently seems to work just fine ...

    Cool didn't know about that page ...

    there is the same thing about the ID that i found out thanks to google ...

    Now if there is someone who knows more about this stuff, i would be pretty much interested to get an explanation how the different id makes such a difference in compatibility ?

    Maybe you just need the correct id because of the region of the game. You wouldn't want to convert a region 1 game with a region 2 id.

    It is true that different versions of the game have different IDs, but it's not region based. The only three versions that make any difference is NTSC-J, NTSC-U, and PAL-E, in that order (due to the order of processing and releasing those games). The ID given to these games typically relate to the release # of those games. However, 99% of all games you'll find on the internet will be NTSC-U, so this doesn't make a difference.

    As for what difference the ID makes, I really can't say. Some people report better results playing with some IDs or POPS versions than others. The details of people's findings can be found in the above given link. http://www.gamerspress.com/index.php?title...patibility_List
