Success With Star Wars Battlefront "Black Screen of Death" !! –
Managed to get Star Wars Battlefront PAL (Known for Black Screen of Death) to work. I noticed that the game itself has it's normal SLES,SLUS,SCES file but also has an ELF file SWBFRONT.ELF.. See where im going......
I simply copied the files on the disc to my hard drive, then using notepad edited the top line of the SYSTEM.CNF to read.. YUP you guessed it..
BOOT2 = cdrom0:\SWBFRONT.ELF;1
Then rebuilt the ISO in nero in no particular order and making sure to rename it "1_01" which was the original name for the disc.The ISO is half the size because you have only made an ISO not ISO/UDF (I think) don't panic though.
Dumped it using HDL_DUMP 0.7.3 with the HD attached to PC using SWBFRONT.ELF as the Disc ID (Instead of SLES/SLUS/SCES_XXXXX)
Loaded it with all modes OFF... nothing...
All modes ON... SUCCESS
I hope this can help to figure out the BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH problem. Someone with more experience may be able to work back from this...
I don't think the network capabilities work doing it this way.. but from what i can see i believe this is the first a BLACK SCREEN OF DEATH game has been loaded using HD Loader.
I have a PAL V3 NO MOD PS2 using MC Exploit & Fully patched & skinned HD Loader
GAMES THAT WORK USING THIS METHOD
Star Wars Battlefront NTSC/PAL...............(SWBFRONT.ELF)
Metal Gear Solid 3 OPSM Demo NTSC.........(MGS\MGS3.ELF)
GoldenEye : Rogue Agent.........................(GE2\GE2RDVD.ELF)
And Kudos to everyone puttin in the time!!!
Excellent! I assume fixing the NTSC version would be a similar process? Let's hope other games can be fixed that way as well.
NTSC or PAL shouldn't make a difference.. i just need some more BLACK SCREENERS to test
It was a pretty rough job but im playing it right now. Could probaly tidy the image up a bit (use the proper LBA for each file/folder) but it seems to work.
Im thinkin the Black Screen problem lies in the SLES,SLUS,SCES file?
Got Evil Dead Fistful of Boomstick PAL.. I'll see what i can do with that..
ohh viewtiful joe would be marvellous =) any chance someone could try it out with that one?
I only got the idea this morning.. if i can get my hands on it i'll give it a go
