The Joystick Analog test available from http://forums.qj.net/psp-development-forum/157617-joystick-angle-test.html now fails to start in PPSSPP, i previously utilised this when testing KrossX;s xinput changes.

It runs if you put it in its subdirectory like this: PPSSPP/MemStick/PSP/GAME/JoystickAngleTest .

I recommend that you put all your PBP files in nice directories like that because PPSSPP will get a nice interface to navigate games on "memstick".

But yes it's a bug that it won't load from another folder.

I take it that one must put the homebrew game folders to where PPSSPP is installed... what if there is low space in phone main memory (Android) and I'd prefer to keep them on the sd card (extSdCard/ on Samsung in my case)?

On Android the "Memstick" folder is simply the sdcard. So put homebrews in /PSP/GAME directly in the root of the sd card.

Is this an issue? I notice it's still open.
PPSSPP used to allow homebrews to run when launched from any directory. I know a lot of homebrews only look for their assets in PSP/GAME, but should we allow launching from anywhere as well?

@xsacha it should be allowed, or there should be an option to change the memory stick location.
it's incredibly annoying having games split over internal storage and sdcard, and on many devices there's not enough space on the internal storage to keep al your games there.

PSP/GAME is on your SD card. The new UI will assume that you have your homebrew there and present them all nicely with icons in a single list (might still add an option to change the path, we'll see - that might be needed on Symbian or whatever)

didn't notice it also works if the folder is placed on the SDcard.
by default the /PSP/GAME folder is created on the internal storage.

Hm, that's not intended to happen, that's probably a bug. But you shouldn't be able to even see the internal storage on Android anyway without file managers or rooting.

I think we're having a little misunderstanding here.
with internal storage I mean the file storage built into the device(mounted as /data/media, /sdcard, /mnt/sdcard, and /storage/sdcard0 on my phone)
sdcard is the actual SDcard (/mnt/extsdcard and /storage/extsdcard)

Is this issue still relevant or present?

I have tried it. But, when the ppsspp loads it, it is directly crashed. Any idea?

I don't think this issue is present in current builds anymore, so I think(?) this can be closed. I ran the homebrew provided in the first post from a location that wasn't %memstick%/PSP/GAME and it worked fine. Of course, homebrew that expect to be in PSP/GAME won't run correctly, but that's not PPSSPP's fault.
