Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance on ESR
Metal Gear Solid 2 Substance on ESR –
I'm trying to get this game to work.
With the original NTSC DVD9 version, I took it to my USB HDD and tried with OPL but it didn't work.
Now, I found a way to make it work by extracting both layers with Apache and making a new iso with UltraISO. This way it worked. Then, I got to a point in the game (after 7 hours of gameplay without problems) where when I tried to use the elevator, it'd freeze on the text screen before entering that section.
Well, I tried with a ripped PAL version (could fit on a single layer . Always using OPL, got to the same point of the game (by converting the save from NTSC to PAL), entered the elevator and it worked. Guess what, the next room I had to enter, it froze there. Yeah.
So I tried burning that version, patched with ESR, at 4x with a TDK DVD+R, and tried loading it to my PS2.
If I tried with auto-boot, FMCB logo, ESR logo, colors and black screen.
If I tried thru ESR, colors and black screen.
My situation is a bit complicated. I have a Fat NTSC PS2 (SCPH-50001/N), using it in PAL territory, with don't know what modchip (old one, pre-2006).
When I try to play original games with Free McBoot installed, it won't work.
When I take out the memory card with original games (without FMCB) it will work.
When I try to play burned games thru the modchip (without FMCB) it won't always work. Always been like that.
It's not the laser cause I tried with another original game and it worked. Never got to make a burned copy work myself.
If anyone has the patience to sit me thru this one I'd really appreciate it.
