I have a recurring problem with a The Getaway DVD backup. The game freezes in exactly the same scene everytime I play it. It is the mission 2, right after I get to the Republic, I start shooting, kill 4 or 5 guys and the games freezes.
I got this problem about two days ago.
Is the bakcup the problem or is it my PS2?
I have no idea what is the brand of the DVD used for the backup. :confused:
I have not tried any of my other backups yet, but they were not giving me any trouble. :D
I have a JAP PS2 SPCH 30000 V4 no gap, magic 3.0 chipped.
Any comments, suggestions will be greatly appreciated
My guess is that the problem is your magic 3.0. Try another brand of media and you will get the same thing if it is the chip.
the other DVD Backup I have is recorded on a Pengo Technologies DVDR, it froze just once and that game got played hard and long.
I was suspecting the chip also, but it seems a bit suspicious that the game freezes exactly on the same spot
I had a magic 3.0 in my V3 pal ps2. All of my games would stutter like crazy. I thought it was the media i was using, datawrite yellow tops 1x. I took it to the bloke who put the chip in and he swapped it for a messiah 2 free of charge :). Well what do you know. Every game boots first time and no stuttering what so ever. So i reckon every chance it could be the chip.
