Could you try Dynasty Warriors 2 and see if the 2nd cutscene locks up? Its the one after you pick your warrior in story mode. Me, my brother and a friend have each installed a Magic V in our playstations and the game still acts up (two magic v's on v7 and one 50k on a v9). Even the original store bought disc does this until the modchip is turned off and then it works perfect. I mean its no big deal because i've only had a problem with 2 of 50 some odd games but i was just wondering if there was more to a proper install than what the official installation claims or if there are incompatiblities. BTW, the games will work if i cancel out the particular "spot" by pushing the start button. The other game is ICO. Both are CD games. Thanks.
