here's my situation ... my uncle gave me his ps2 cuz he's having problems with burnout 3 ... for some reason the only thing we can choose in multiplayer is the party crasher option. all the other options are greyed out and we're not sure what's causing it ...
here's the setup he's got:
unknown modchip (possibly a magic 3.1 or a variant)
hdloader w/ v.05b patch (used all the date/time patches 0-3) on either the cd or memcard
now here's another thing ... i noticed that the system date/time doesn't seem to get saved when we power down the ps2 and i'm not sure if this has soemthing to do with it.
any help would be much appreciated
