I created a .gi image of Commandos 2 using RecordNow Max 4. The global image was created successfully and I then burned it on a maxell DVD-R. After loading it on a 3901 system the screen sais 'loading'..goes to a black screen and then the 'insert PS2 disc' screen pops up. To ensure that I burned it correctly I placed the original in there.. the screen sais 'loading' and then black screen, but then eventually loads the game. However, the orginial took about 2 tries before it loaded after that initial black screen. I noticed some flashes on the screen after the 'loading' window which seems like the system is doing some double check. Has anyone successfully played this as a backup? I'm using one of my Apple v2 chipped units. Could this phenomenon really be related to the game having a safety 'doublecheck disc' protection on it or could it be media or burn method related? Strange, if it was a bad burn the initial 'loading' screen should have never popped up... Maybe i'm wrong.
