Hello dear Community,
i need help .
I've been using FreeMCBoot, OPL v0.8 and an internal HDD to play Valkyrie Profile 2 Silmeria (NTSC). So far the game worked with no issues at all. After 50 hours of playing I've gotten to chapter 5 and a Mid Boss called "White Dragon". After i've beaten him i, as always, saved my game and from that moment on the Game keeps freezing whenever i enter a battle.
I assumed that it would be just temporary so i decided to turn off my ps2 and retry later... turns out it happened again. Then i tried to avoid battles until the next dungeon and again it froze the moment i got into battle.
Since the Laser of my PS2 is dead i couldn't try it with the original disk.
I tried to google it out and found out that this issue is related to using cheat codes and/or cheat devices like Action Replay and those alike. Thing is i haven't cheated nor have i used any cheat device, app or anything like that. Just FreeMCBoot and OPL.
People claim there is no solution on this problem other then to start over since the save file has apparently become corrupted.
My question would be: is that really the case? Is there no way on modifying the save data so i can just continue?
If there's really no other solution then to start over how do i make sure this happens not again?
Its really frustrating... i mean 50 hours of gameplay just down the drain... and the story just got really interesting .
So please help out if you can. Any hint is appreciated.
