I have a small suggestion for something that may be worth adding to your Systems Manual.

The fact that some games have copyright protection and will not play on PSIO without first being patched (and perhaps list some of the popular hits)

It feels like something that should go without saying - that if you are nerd enough to own a PSIO, this kind of thing is assumed knowledge... clearly that's not the case.

I've recently been playing FF8 on my PSIO and after watching a few FMVs stutter - I came here to see if it was a known issue, and it is. However on the compatibility page it is listed that the PAL version boots to a black screen - which we know is simply copyright protection and not a fault of PSIO (I play on the PAL version and have patched the game so it loads)

It might also be an idea to even add the ability to apply ppf patches through your Systems Console program. Unless it'd take a lot of time to implement, in which case time would be better spent elsewhere - there are plenty of ppf utilities out there.

I'm pretty sure I added information about LibCrypt to the end of the Systems Manual under Q/A, but you're right. It should be mentioned prior to that. Thanks for the suggestion :)

As for adding PPF patching to the Systems Console, I'd need the source code to PPF-O-MATIC from Paradox.

Do you mean the patches are automatically applied by the Systems Console, or that you can use it to apply the patches yourself? Either way, it's a great idea.

Matt was this FW update basically a patch for Resident Evil with a more robust and dedicated FW coming later in the year?

And in response to your JIRA question for "The X-Files"- In-game scenes still skip and cut out entirely with new ARM FW.

Yes, if you login to your account, you'll see it's marked as "Processing your PSIO Cartridge for Shipment...", so your order is in the logistics stage now. We're waiting on DHL now to come and pick it up :)

We're updating our SSL certificate so that will happen. It's safe to continue of course.

*UPDATE* It's fixed now.

You should have received your tracking number from DHL, but I'm also sending them manually in case you have not.
