I would like to apologise.

I submitted a problem report for Floating Runner, saying it crashed after the first level. I cannot recall was CDDA type I listed the crash/freeze being under (top one in the menu - KV1.3 maybe?), but I've since played it again, testing it with KV1.1, and the glitch is fixed.

It loads the levels fine. I played through a few with no problems, and fine music. Sorry for submitting a pointless report, please disregard.

(Also, I tried CV:SOTN, and I've had no trouble with the audio. US version, BIN file, KV1.3 selected, using a CU2 file from the USA pack provided on this forum. Was this problem corrected in the latest firmware? Or is it at a specific place?)

For me it is freezing after the Square Logo.
After disabling Fast Boot also FF VII (Retranslation) is working.

Is that IS or IS NOT working?

It should be "IS". I have corrected the spelling.

Okay. I will try to test this issue further to make sure Fastboot V1.6 versus V1.7 is causing problems...

In case of FF VII (Retranslation) either v1.6 or v1.7 of Fast Boot was working.

Can someone here confirm something for me? I have been having issues with Gauntlet legends, if you try to save or go to the game menu while in the hub world the game locks up. I just want to make sure that i am not the only one with this issue, this is the NTSC version. I would put in a report but two things are stopping me, one the new firmware is coming and it changes how psio operates. 2. i want to make sure this is not just me.

I have a request from everyone who has posted in this thread, i will be compiling a list of games that do not work on the current firmware and it would be awesome if we can all pool our experiences into a masterlist with the current firmware.

I have been thinking about doing this for a while but i am only one person and together we could put a comprehensive list together, if would benefit newer customers on what needs fixing and what to expect right out of the box. This weekend i will put together my list and post it on the first post but i need your help to have a more complete list since i have only played about 70 games and only fully finished a handful so far.

Edit: You can send me a pm or just post here and i will add it to the masterlist i will be putting together this weekend.

It's better if you email them to me so I can add them to the JIRA database :)
So far I've got a lot of games that are mostly duplicates, so if I get any of those I'll just ignore them if they match others.

I will definitely email a copy to you, i already made reports for these games minus one(i will make the report before the weekend is up) but i will quick test a bunch of games tonight and add them to the list if they have any issues. My goal is to help make psio as close to 100% compatible as humanly possible as are many others doing the same. I hope i get some bites so we can all pool our data together, especially since i can not play pal.

Games that currently have issues all are NTSC

diablo [movies have audio sync issues but normal gameplay works as intended]

warcraft2 [during mission briefings the game freezes temporarily but will continue with audio sync issues for voice of the commander giving mission details, you can skip the briefings and the normal gameplay seems to work fine(have not finished the whole game yet)]

parasite eve 2 [Locks up during the street intro now long after starting]

Gauntlet Legends [Locks up when trying to save or going to game menu from pause]

Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels [Has audio problems]

Clock tower [Audio issues during the opening movie, audio issues seem to occur during gameplay movies with spoken dialog as well.]

Final Fantasy VIII [Intro FMV Skips]

Road Rash 3D [freezing during races]

Thanks! All of them already existed except for Warcraft, but I've added the new information to the JIRA database.

007 The World Is Not Enough [audio issues during mission briefings]

Clock tower [Audio issues during the opening movie, audio issues seem to occur during gameplay movies with spoken dialog.]
I already sent in a report and added to the list.

Edit: I am happy to report i bought a PlayStation Link Cable and just tested doom and final doom, psio running on one and the other using the cd. Both work as intended and i am very impressed, i got two other link cable games i can test and i will do so soon.

LiberoGrande [PAL]

Game has not sound at intro and freezes when you press start or when the intro finish.

Tried with all XA/CDDA modes.

Tried with and without fastboot.

Tried with and without CU2 cuesheet.

If I press Reset button the screen get stuck at PSIO logo. I got to shut down the PSX and turn on again.

Just reported using the official form.

Sorry for my english :D

Edit. EDC? Is some kind of protection? This game has EDC.
