messiah 2 1.31 has major problems?
I was set on getting this chip until i read neoasic has reported that the messiah 2 1.31 has DVD-r boot problems at this page . It seems that dvd-r doesn't boot after reset on two key ps2's the SCPH 50002 and the SCPH 50004 according to the quote they posted:
has this been fixed? i really don't want to shell out alot of money to install a mod customers will percieve as defective.
DVD-R boots fine on SCPH-50002 and SCPH-50004 with first loading in addition to RE-PLAY. The problem with RE-PLAY is that you will get a "Red Screen" once you tap the reset button. In this case, you have to re-boot the game from Stand-By mode (Red Light). This issue never happened on SCPH-50000 (JAP) and SCPH-3900X (JAP/US/PAL) console.
i'm holding out till m2 1.32
not trying to rain on your parade but it looks like it doesn't work on the us 50001 as well according to foundmy.com. I like the messiah 2 but it seems as though there are less features in it to justify the price diff. between it and the DMS3 - more chips will follow that will be v9 compatible and at a cheaper price, when that happens the messiah 2 will have to ad extra features or tthere will be nothing in it to justify the price.
