Having an odd (maybe) issue with ESR
Odd to me at least.
I am using FMCB with ESR beta 9.b
I made a backup of my copy of FFX to test ESR with. The first time I tried to boot the game with ESR it would take about 20 minutes for the screen with the multi color borders to show up. After it turned cyan it would just go to a black screen and stay that way. I had burned this with DVD Decryptor at 4x.
I reburned the ISO I had made at 1x. ESR booted the game flawlessly. I got to the point right after the opening FMV (when Sin attacks Zanarkand) Then as I was running accross the bridge with Auron I get as far as him pointing up and saying "Look" The game sort of freezes after this.
I say sort of because Tidus and Auron move as if the are interacting with one another. Head movements, walking around the screen, but then they flash around the screen for a few seconds then "snap" to the middle of the screen and freeze there. Music keeps playing and nothing I press on the controller works. Can't even "square reset".
After this happened repeatedly I downloaded an AR Max save that starts at the first save point beyond this part of the game. I put the save on a usb drive, booted AR Max (original disc), and uncrushed the save to my memory card.
Now when I try to boot the FFX back up disc I get the ESR "title" screen, then the screen goes black and does nothing.
Also the Playstation Browser reads my back up as a DVD Video.
I apologize at the wordiness of this, but I know that when making a first post about a problem, sometimes the tiniest thing missed is the thing that solves the problem.
