If anyone has some time, please try a few of the games I've reported in the last couple days. I want to make sure my PSIO isn't causing any of the issues. Thanks.

Ridge Racer works perfectly for me. Latest FW, ReDump NTSC-U.

Works for me, also.

EDIT: I solved this issue, as some junk files produced by my Mac caused issues with my card. See here:

Toshinden is the only game from that list that's on my card at the moment. I'm pretty sure this worked on earlier FW's but, this time I'm getting a split screen effect and garbled text.

Here are some results of recent testing, confirmed by another forum user:

WWF WrestleMania The Arcade Game (NTSC-U): loads to a silent, black screen

Viewpoint (NTSC-U): gets caught in an endless resetting loop on the screen that says "PSIO" in the center (the screen you see when you turn the system on if you have Fastboot enabled, only this time there was no progress bar below "PSIO"). For some reason, trying to load Viewpoint brings up that PSIO screen, and it keeps resetting to the same screen.

Novastorm (NTSC-U): If you leave the opening movie to access the menu, and then resume the movie, the audio and video are out of sync.

Current, it worked on the former firmware. It was on my list of working games the last time.

Clock tower (NTSC) [Audio issues during the opening movie, audio issues seem to occur during gameplay movies with spoken dialog as well.] Same issues as with the last firmware but it was reported after the firmware was made, so it is to be expected.

Thanks - some of these are good to know for later!

You can add C-12 and Floating Runner to the list (NTSC-U both cases). That's all I've been playing recently. :D

Although a lot of games, including some favourites, aren't working yet (or were broken recently), there's still an enormous quantity of must plays to work through while waiting for those others to function. Spoiled for choice really.
