It would be cool if you could find out a way to get the background sprites on 3.71 m33-3

I found out that isn't a matter of convertion lba07, but instead a matter of pops version each firmware use. Your pops version, probably 3.40, its one of that which could play the game with less problems, thats why you can play without emulate other pops with popsloader.

You will need popsloader and 3.72 pops from 3.72 firmware. Get the pack I post here in few previous posts and install this popsloader plugin and you will be able to run it .

Feel free to ask if you get some problems.

edit: Btw, I don't need to change the game id to make it work with pops version 3.72

Yes. Get popsloader last version for 3.71m33-3 from DAX site (there are some instructions) and activate the plugin at Recovery Menu. You should first have copied the pack I mention above. Then when you run the game, while displaying the boot image, press R, and a menu with all pops version will appear so you can choose which version you want to emulate. Choose 3.72 which is the best one so far.

Here's a video with LBA1 playing on my PSP Slim: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CI36ynJzsjU

I also fix the screen positions in the game. It looks better this way.

I can say I get 98% of full screen, only because a little bit is cut-off at the bottom of the screen while fixing the screen. It was the best I could get with a lot of tools I use. If you see the intro movie in the uploaded youtube file, you can see a bit of speech text cut, but you can still read it and not much loosed.

So, I really advice to fix the screen the way I did.

I use the program Zapper2K converting PAL to NTSC with positions in 0,0

Always patch the image file (iso, img, bin) because convert it to eboot. I also try a lot of iso to eboot tools and they are all the same, they always give the same output, so, patch the iso with zapper and try to play the game this way.

I'll as soon as possible make a little guide to all those stuffs and also upload my custom images and sounds for this LBA eboot.

I don't see any major glitches using pops version 3.72, only some times half of the screen is refreshed, but it occurred very often and we can always recenter the character to fix it.

Not using the way I did, you can use a normal convertion without patching any of those commons pal2ntsc fix those programs came, and you will get a 16:9 screen view, with those black bars at top and bottom at full screen not zoomed, and I still prefer patching it with zapper.

You should have something to increase the cpu speed in dosbox. At least the pc version have.

About the top&bottom bars, yes they are equal and X is centered, but because of this bars the game looks stretched. So, I really recommend applying Zapper, its easy and you can play without problems

Of course LBA 2 is compatible with DosBox. But what has that to do with LBA 1 on PSP?

LBA2 on psp? that is probably just a dream.. if you can get the dosbox on psp with lba2, that was why I asked it.

I don't think it's really possible to run DosBox with that game on the PSP, it would be horribly slow.
