cpe2x file name limitation

Post by jman » October 26th, 2013, 1:14 am

CPE2X as of version v1.5 apparently does not allow cpe files longer than 8 characters.

Code: Select all

>cpe2x 8_chars_.cpe
CPE2X Ver1.5

convert from 8_chars_.cpee to 8_chars_.EXE for Japan area
pc0:80108144  t_addr:80100000  t_size:0000d000

Code: Select all

>cpe2x 9_chars__.cpe
CPE2X Ver1.5
Copyright (C) 1994,1995 by Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.
ERROR: cannot open file 9_chars__.cpe
I know the PS filesystem allows 8 chars + ext, but ...oh well, this got me for a couple minutes before understanding

Someone should open a ticket on the Sony bugtracker :)
