Changelog

v0.72-psp-0.0.5

  • Restored support for Slim models. Owners of PSP 2000, 3000 and Go can now allocate up to ca. 42Mb (by changing 'memsize' in the dosbox.conf file).
  • A partial workaround to the keyboard issue was also added.

v0.72-psp-0.0.4

  • Restored support for the dynamic core.
  • But the on-screen keyboard is still pretty much broken.

v0.72-psp-0.0.3

  • This release of DOSBox for PSP is based on DOSBox 0.72.

0.71-psp-0.0.2

  • This version solves the audio issues with the previous release.

0.71-psp-0.0.1

  • First pre-release built on the recovered code base.
  • Known issues: no sound, instability if the dosbox.conf file is altered, freeze if the p-sprint keyboard is used.
  • The build does not include a file manager, and will boot into command line. We recommend to include a third-party launcher, like LaunchBox for MS-DOS. Once added to the DOSBox folder, add the following code at the bottom of dosbox.conf:
    • cd LBXDOS20
    • LAUNCH.BAT
