ps2 phat black screen... –
Been reading through these threads seems people have a similar problem to me. I'm on a old ps2 phat and ANY ESR patched game does not load. However I can play real dvd games just fine. Also its worth noting that I did just do the disc swap trick to get my freemcboot memory card on this very same phat with 007 agent under fire. It blows my mind that the laser could read that burnt copy after swapping and can't read any ESR patched games (not really but still).
So do I NEED to order some verbatim DVD-R? How do I find the serial number on my ps2?
Tried these games Memorex DVD-R and KHII with Sony DVD+R
Games I've tried:
007 agent under fire
Kingdom hearts II final mix
Resident Evil 4
btw I tried ESR and the ESR gui (whatever versions I have, I doubt it's relevant)
In the end I'm hoping to save myself the trouble of having to solder my ps2's slim power button back in place.
You have to use Verbatim DVD-R. I used to use Sony DVD+R and couldn't play any game. Use ImgBurn to burn the discs and make sure that you select the max write speed. Believe it or not max speed is the solution. I've tried several speeds. Burning at x4 and ESR couldn't load any game. Burning at x8 i played the game only 3 times with lags but burning at max was the solution.
