Wierd. Thats pretty much the one I use, but an older version of it that I originally got for the PSX & it works perfectly for me.
You could try using CDVDLoader before you load up the AR2 Bonus Disc & select NTSC mode on that. It would probably mean the AR2 screens would be 'off', but the game might then end up being fine.
