Being a recent title I wondered if this has new protection making it incompatible with ESR?
I have a PAL SCPH-75003 Slim Satin Silver PS2, using FreeMcBoot 1.8, not sure about the ESR version except that it's the latest one I think (FMCB and ESR was installed for me). I patched the the image with ESR disc patcher GUI v0.24a.
What happens is that the FMCB logo splashes on screen, then the ESR splash, and then nothing but a black screen. I waited for 5-10 minutes before restarting. I noticed the disc was still spinning until I interrupted it and then it stopped when I opened the lid.
I cleaned the lens with rubbing alcohol to see if that made a difference and it didn't. I have read other comments stating that this does not work work with HDloader 0.8c (I think), but it does work with swap magic.
I'm burning on TY03 discs at 4x. I've tried two discs and both demonstrated the same problems, in case it was a bad burn. The image is PAL. I might try the NTSC image, and see if that works.
any ideas why this might not be working? Should I try the memento patcher, and if so is that just a case of patch the iso with it, then burning it and loading with esr?
thanks in advance
