WWE SD : HCTP Players, please help
I would like to find out if anyone here has become a victim of WWE Smackdown : Here Comes The Pain.
My PS2 never used to have any problems, but after playing HCTP for quite some time, clicking noises from my PS2 have started to appear during gameplay. While these clicks are sounding, I touch my PS2 and I can feel grinding and strong vibrations. Also, while this happens, the sound effects can still be heard, but the music will skip and even stop altogether. After I win or lose that match, when there's supposed to be a loading screen, the game will hang.
Xathian told me that the age of my PS2 is also one reason, and that HCTP apparently works fine on newer PS2s. However, after reading the forums at GameFAQs, it seems that even people with 6-month-old PS2s are experiencing similar problems.
My PS2 model is SCPH 30006, and is just over one year old, and my MM warranty has just expired. (Sh*t.)
It's been awhile since this problem started, and in the early stages, I could still play other games without problems. Now, I experience problems booting some other games.
I know that k3vlar's PS2 also has problems now. However, it is not clear to us whether the cause of these problems are indeed HCTP. It seems to be too much of a coincidence that our PS2s started giving us problems after we played HCTP.
I would like to hear from anyone else who has experienced the same problem, as well as what you have done about it. Thanks alot.
