Black screen while trying to launch from uLaunchelf and ESR after FMCB install
Black screen while trying to launch from uLaunchelf and ESR after FMCB install –
Hello all. I just installed FMCB to my MC using the swap trick with 007 Under Fire. I used the noobie package to do so. I've been trying to install a couple emulators. I am not totally sure I am doing things right.I navigate to the elf files on my usb device using Ulaunchelf but when I click through the screen goes black. I tried 3 different usb drives and cards. Thinking it may be an issue with the usb I moved the elfs to my MC and I get the same problem trying to launch from there. Once I did get a red screen for a second but it flickered and then went black. I also once heard some music playing with a black screen(Im guessing this has to be some sort of splash screen) .Any ideas on whats wrong or what I am doing wrong? Last night I made my first backup and noticed something that might help. I launched my disc through ESR. When I did I got the black screen and that music. I hit X on the controller and the colorful screens flashed and the game loaded and played just fine. This morning I tried playing again and now I still get the black screen with music, and the colorful flashes, but when the game loads the screen is black and I only have audio. I tried launching from ESR right from startup and then tried navigating to ESR through FMCB and then launching the game and I get the same result. All the menus of the programs installed (Ulaunch,ESR,SMS,HD loader) all work and are visible. It seems like the black screen happens when I try to run something. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance!
Some info on my system and software I'm using:
USB thumbdrive and usb card reader all formatted 32FAT
FMCB version 1.8
ULaunchelf version 4.39
ESR beta 9b
Emulator elf files:
Ok some more information. This has got me baffled. I had the PS2 hooked up to my HDTV using component cables(multicolored). I switched to the PS2 original composite cable(Red,Yellow,White) to see if that made a difference. Something weird happened. Now when I run the emulator elfs the menus show up(although the PGen never gets passed a loading screen) but look horrible. Are these emulators not compatible using component cables?
Also now when I launch my disc from ESR I both see and hear that splash screen. After that a loading screen flashes but then the screen flickers and the black screen returns when the game starts. I can hear the audio but still have no video. This game worked fine last night with the component cables hooked up. I also put in a couple original PS2 retail games and they played fine with no issues using the composite and component cables.
Another interesting note....I went through the Ps2 browser and found a corrupted file on the exploited MC. Could this be the culprit? Could I just have a bad installation on my hands? The file is only 2KB but I cant delete it. I also cannot find it browsing with uLaunchelf.
At this point I am considering formatting the MC and starting the whole process over. Is this safe to do? Is this a good idea?
