Re: Kingsley Adventure black screen

I have tried this briefly using K1V2 setting and I seem to get into the gameplay fine using the NTSC-U verison. Not played much though but it may be worth a go.

Re: F1 2000 (NTSC) - Runs ~ 3 X Slower During Grand Prix

I don't have the original disc anymore and don't really fancy wasting a CD-R on it. I have looked at numerous youtube videos and it does appear to have slow down issues when there are a large amount of cars in front to render. I don't remember it being this severe when I originally played it all tho...

Re: Spyro Year of the Dragon hangs

I am using an unpatched NTSC version, ReDump verified and changing the audio setting to K1V2 solved that problem for me.

F1 2000 (NTSC) - Runs ~ 3 X Slower During Grand Prix

The game runs at full speed during time trial when you are the only car on track. Using the quick race option the game runs very slowly when there are multiple AI cars on the track.

Can anyone else confirm this?

Re: Official PSIO News and Development Thread

Just done some further testing and Spyro 3 NTSC V1.1 (ReDump Verified) (Unpatched) works using audio mode K1V2. Tried 3 times and it went past the Bianca animation fine. :dance I haven't played much more than about 10 mins or so as my time is limited at the moment, just though I would let you know. ...

Re: Official DCIO News and Development Thread

I did the 12V Fix mod on my PAL Dreamcast and the RGB Scart output stopped working, this is with the official cables. Only the Hanzo VGA box worked. I prefer using RGB Scart on a CRT so I can use a light gun etc During my testing I did not notice any obvious difference in how warm the console felt. ...

Re: DHL Timeframe?

Mine took almost a month to arrive. It was actually delivered by Royal Mail and was being held at the sorting office due to custom fees. So try your tracking on the royal mail website instead.

Re: Possible bricked PSIO?

It took about 2 minutes or so. I was using a 128GB SanDisk Ultra Plus, it had about 4 games and the update files. I didn't do anything other than turn on the system and then turn it off when the message about having the update file still on the SD card came up on the screen. I always check the LED i...

Re: Possible bricked PSIO?

You need to delete the firmware files after you have updated, just leave the menu.sys file in the root of the sd card. Those files have been deleted. All that remains on the SD card is menu.sys. The thing is, I haven't see the PSIO menu ever since firmware upgrade. Before I would see the black and ...

SBI Support for Libcrypt Games?

Loving the PSIO so far, only issues I have are with libcrypt games. I know you can patch the bin files but these usually add intro screens to the games and cheats. If would be great if it can support SBI subchannel data to allow these games to run without the unofficial patches. I know some games li...

Re: Official PSIO News and Development Thread

I have also had a quick go on castlevania symphony of the night and gran turismo and did not hear any obvious audio issues, but then I have never played castlevania before so I am not sure what it is supposed to sound like. I am just running it through RGB Scart, maybe when HD upscalers get involved...

Re: PSIO UK delivery warning.

I am happy to pay the 20% VAT. For me it's the Royal Mail handling fee which is annoying because they charge £8 per parcel to put through customs, which usually exceeds the VAT to pay. Parcel force are even worse. They charge about £11 per parcel and we have no control here who decides to take respo...
