My vp2 would freeze also right at the 1st battle, i tried the ps1 controller swap thing, i tried 3rd party controllers, i tried reburning on different media, none of it worked. Then I just started my ps2 up with out any controllers and let the game auto load until it asked me to put in my ps2 controller and then it worked like a charm! So i hope for anyone else who is having this problem that this will work for them if the ps1 controller swap isn't working.
P.S. my ps2 is a V7 with CC 1.0 with latest bm and hacked firmware
doesn't work for me. also, i have a problem with my bm, because it won't auto load any game. i always have to do it manually. and even then only the normal mode works.

I wrote this in another part of the board.
"I was able to get it to work without the ps1 controller swap trick all I did was load the game without my ps2 controller plugged in and then when the game asked for it I plugged it in and now no freezing."
Yea i also asked how did you get HDLoader to load the game without a controller.
I dont need the controller swap trick for DVD or for ToxicOS 0.41, it works fine with both of those.I just leave the PS2 controller connected.

SCPH-50001-N [V9] CC 2.0 SLE
SCPH-79001 [V16] Silver - unmodded
I got it to work by unplugging the controller and starting the game. The key is the have the controller unplugged before you power on the PS2. I am using the game on disc, not hdd. I have Crystal 1.2, with slim PS2 v15, and the latest hacked firmware. This game is awesome! Thanks to everyone for their input and tips.
The key is no matter what your loading it from just unplug it before it starts loading the game which also works when using cheats like codebreaker also.
