PSx backups help
I recently bought the newer psone at a garage sale for three dollars. When i brought it home to use it, i followed an online text tutorial to burn backups. This psone did come with a game, and that works fine by itself, but if i burn psone backups (acquired from romhustlerdotcom) and use the swap method to play them. Any backup game i have tried to burn, and i have tried several have not worked. Well, not well at least. the cut scenes are all choppy and keep skipping, and some screens that consist of words (or are supposed to contain words) just have almost a cross hatched box where the words should be. Is it the type of cd-r i am using? or is it the backups? any help would be appreciated. thank you.
Backups generally run slower than original discs so choppy cuts scenes are normal. CD-R brand and burn speed always have an impact on the quality of the burn. I haven't burned PSX games for over 10 years now so I can't help you there. I do remember that backup's disc size needs to be smaller than the boot disc you are using or the PSX won't be able to read the disc fully.
Just to let you know, no piracy talk and no mentioning where you got them either.
