FRONTIER 1337 is a port for PSP from the 1993 Atari version of the game "FRONTIER - Elite II".
For those who still don't know this game, here is the intro sequence :
Here is the changelog for this new version :
- 30% speed improvement!
- Choice between fullscreen and original resolution at the begining.
- Select button is now also used to switch between radar and missiles.
- The game engine FPS can be show/hide by pressing right trigger plus select button.
- Now, you have to press CROSS button to pass the police arrest.
- Hold R trigger for moving the mouse cursor slowly (thanks JLF65 from DCEmu for the help).
- Hold R trigger and press D-pad UP to force mis-jump.
- Brand new PSP splashscreen and icon.
As always, for a better framerate result, set the level of shape detail to 'low' in the setup screen (start button), and disable things like 'Space dust, clouds etc' and 'Background stars'...
Don't try to change commander's name when you are saving your game. If you want to change it, rename the file in the savs folder.

The sourcecode is included in the package. Use Minimalist PSPSDK to compile the game.
For unknown reasons, the game only compiles with the 0.10.0 version. If someone wants to take a look, the error is located in the screen.c function void Screen_Init(void).
Your computer must have loads of RAM to compile the huge generated C file.
