  3. This game is SO much better with the unstretch and slowdown fix.

So I have the slowdown fix installed a-okay...what exactly does the unstretch fix do?

Basically what the name implies.
'm not sure what the resolution really is, but the game was not actually made to fit the PSP screen (I'd honestly never noticed until seeing it fixed, but the shops are especially jarring to see the difference).

I actually prefer the screen resolution the game has standard for the PSP, the original (unstretched) version is a bit to small for me to see. In my old age my eyes aren't as good as they used to be.

The person that made this plugin would be none other than Archaemic, who has also found and released an exploit (a modified TIFF for 5.03 and a few other exploits as well as some homebrews). He's a great dev and a definite credit to the PSP scene.

Also, here's the latest version of Livepatch (v0.1.3 and the debug v0.1.3) as well as the latest WotL patches -

Livepatch v0.1.3 - http://www.mediafire.com/?a43zv9r0yfjh3a2
Livepatch v0.1.3 debug - http://www.mediafire.com/?fyg3b98s47yem25
Latest WotL patches - http://www.mediafire.com/?hh3y5gakacaa777

I'll post a thread if Archaemic releases any updates for Livepatch or the WotL patches in this forum.

I hadn't really planned on keeping the unstretch on m'self, not until I wandered into the shops when they weren't being effected by the patch. Once I saw how blurry they were I couldn't un-see it.

'rest of the game looked fine enough, but those images hurt my eyes once I finally noticed it.

The native resolution of WOTL is 340x240 somewhere between a 3:2 and 4:3 aspect ratio, the PSP's screen resolution is 480x272 which is pretty much a 16:9 aspect ratio. The result of stretching to the PSPs resolution is that the image is blurry and a bit deformed.

I have decent enough eyesight I think, but the unstretched screen is a little too small for me. I'll take blurriness that I can see over crisp sharpness that strains my eyes reading it. C'est la vie I guess.

I too don't use the unstretch patch, because I typically play my PSP at home on my TV. It doesn't fill the whole screen (no PSP game played on the TV does) but it fills a lot more than it does with the patch. Can't wait to see if they come out with anything else--I'd really love a couple of the nice things that hacktics has made over the years to be available as a patch, rather than needed to mod an .ISO. For instance, I'd love a patch that allows special characters (Agrias, Mustadio) to perform the Tavern quests, or the patch that lets you purchase anything that you have had stolen/rent in battle from the Poacher's Den.
