Feature Question

Post by samson7point1 » May 13th, 2018, 1:29 am

Does the PSIO have any impact on CD-ROM loading? Specifically does it allow you to play out-of-region discs via the optical drive?

1) No, booting an original CD-ROM works fine since PSIO is disabled when it's set to normal CD mode.
2) Yes it will, but later security checks depends on the game you're loading.

Do you happen to know if it will let me play a physical copy of VibRibbon on my US console?

Original copy or burned CD-R? Also, what version of 'Vib Ribbon' and on what console??

EG: Is it an original disc of the [PAL] 'Vib Ribbon' running on an [NTSC] console.

Yes, it will work fine since PSIO skips the BIOS license checking logic :)

Only copied CD-R's will not work (we can make them work, but obviously for legal reasons we don't make PSIO act like a modchip).
