PS1 import game freezes?
PS1 import game freezes? –
I've been struggling tying to get my USA version of Parasite Eve 2 to work.. but no go.
It boots fine and works fine up to when i press "New game" - it freezes after writing the first two blocks of text on the screen (see attached picture). I tried fast disc speed, normal disc speed, smooth textures, standard textures, 50hz, 60hz.. still not working.
Console is a GH-051-32. Laser is new. Disc looks brand new, NO scratches.
When it freezes it sounds like it starts reading like crazy, like it can't find the next block of data. Tried backing it up at computer, doesn't work. Tried booting the (original) disc in a PSX emulator (on PC), working fine.
Any tips? I want to finish this game but i do not want to play it on an emulator.. ><
Is this specific to my console? I heard some PS2 revisions have trouble running certain PSX games.. wondering if it could be what's wrong..
The new console models (like yours) do indeed have problems with some PS1 and PS2 games. Maybe Parasite Eve 2 is on that list too.
The only thing you haven't tried yet is booting the game in Minimal Mode. (manually press X on Boot Media to get to the Boot Mode Menu)

Yes i am on a PAL system, the disc is from the states. I bought a huge sack of assorted PS1 titles from the states some time ago for cheap..
How do i change the region patching? How do i turn off BM? :-/
Other import games work flawlessly, like the (original) Parasite Eve.. but not the "2".
Will try minimal mode.
