few ps2 games don't load
few ps2 games don't load –
Been backing up a fair few games over the last few days onto very high quality TY discs. All burnt at 2x and verified, so i know the burning isn't a problem here. There are a few select games that load up, but always lock up at one of the loading screens.
So far its been:
- Worms 3D
- Prince Of Persia: Warrior Within
- Metal Gear Solid 2 - (cant remember - not substance)
Not too sure what's going on. They are direct copies of the originals. Any ideas?

just afew questions to help sort this out,what programs are you running?
in my sig
what kind of chip do you have installed?
boot method? im just putting in my game and it loads. all my other games are fine...
are you following the boot method right?
wow i thought the boot method would have been the problem i was thinking you had a duo. now i am stump i would have to look into this.
i have the same problem with my slim ps2 but its with no mod and no fix just swap method... im sure all the games are perfect as they all work on my older ps2 with modchip..for some reason most of them dont load in the v12
i have a thread in /ps2 modchips forum
Have you tried to force the booktype to DVD-ROM (+R media only)?
I use TY discs also, +R and I booktype everything to DVD-ROM. What burner are you using? I've yet to find a troublesome game with my NEC-3500 and I burn the 8X discs @ 16X, no problems. BUT, I've not tried any of the games you listed...
i burn on TY -R data at 2x on a pioneer 106. its got nothing to do with the discs. i've read tested them and they are perfect. its the game itself.
i will be getting a pioneer 109 when they come out.
I see you put MGS2 up there now, I have that one (if you are talking about Sons of Liberty). I just burned it on an 8X +R TY disc at MAX speed (got up to 15.3X) and bitsetting ON. The game booted with no problems here. I never burn @ 2X, takes too long and I've never "read tested" anything. Only way to know if it works is just stick it and try to boot it up.
Just for clarification, the actual discs I am using are Japanese FujiFilm 8X +R (which ARE TY discs unlike the crappy Taiwanese Fujis, which are ProDisc I believe) and they burn @ 16X.
ok.. i've worked out a few of them.
ive used PAL2NTSC to create the PAL/NTSC choser as the game loads. If i select NTSC + Y fix "Worms 3D" and "Prince Of Persia" work fine. the only thing is that the picture is slighty raised - but its all good. "XIII" didn't work and i havent burned mgs2 yet.
from the pal/ntsc choser, if i select PAL - the game freezes in the exact same spot as before.
my chip can force PAL. Normaly when you convert a game to NTSC, it runs faster - but because its on Force PAL it runs at normal speed AND WORKS...
i'll burn mgs and see how i go.
Isn't this a DMS issue ? Would be no surprise...
