I will send in a report in a few, thank's for checking that out for me.

I will resume testing here in a bit.
EDIT: report sent in. I am loading up the next batch of game's on my sd card. No other issues found and so far the tally of games with no issues is at 33, i am taking my time with this and i have been mostly at an hour a piece with each game.

No telling how long it will take but my goal is to knock out all the game's i tested the last time, in about a week from today.

The developers have been doing an excellent job on fixing the issue's we have all noted.

Forget the report on clock tower NTSC i made, i forgot to update that cu2 file. it was using the pack of cu2 files and it was one of the game's i forgot to fix.

I am down to the last two full sets of 32gb sd cards and this will be my last public list, i will still make list's and store them on my computer but everyone can refer to the JIRA website for compatibility issues. This has been fun testing all these game's and i hope we we see more people doing so soon, once the next batch of unit's are in people's hand's.

Thanks, I've deleted Clocktower. We're working on the new firmware at the moment, and so far we've fixed a few more problems. I'll update JIRA tonight with the new info :)

Excellent to hear a firmware is already coming so soon after the previous one. I'm waiting to thoroughly test until after the next couple of bigger updates are made available. Really looking forward to the XA improvement update whenever that is :)

This took me a long time to finish but here is my list of games i have tested for this set of firmware. I will start with the game's that have issue's and then go on to the game's that work. I would like to thank the Development team and also everyone who posted issue's here and helped with testing since i started this thread last year.

All game's have been tested for atleast 15 minute's to an hour, most of the game's got a hour or more.

PSIO games that have issuses
ARM Firmware: [V2.4.5]
FPGA Firmware: [DB12 29/5/2017]
Menu System: [V2.3.0]
All game's here are NTSC unless i add a note to them saying otherwise.

Final Fantasy Anthology: the opening FMV- it has a very infrequent slight stutter in audio and video, very minimal but noticeable nonetheless. Both game's run fine beyond the intro issue's.

Final Fantasy IX: During cutscenes i get a weird pattern appears and changes a bit till the cutscene is over.

Legend of Legaia: After the beginning cut scenes, i went to go practice with the monk by the shore in the village. Every time i started fighting him the battle would lock up and the camera just rotated and music kept playing .

MegaMan Legends 2:After the capcom logo the game is stuck on a blackscreen and pressing buttons does nothing.This happens on all XA/CDDA Mode settings.

MegaMan Legends: A audio bug with voice audio, when Roll speaks you can notice it very easily. it happens on all XA/CDDA modes.

Parasite Eve II: The opening cut scene before you start the game has a audio bug and it does it for the first cut scene after you start the game. I played all the way to the part where you ask to use the truck and i have not experienced another bug.
I spent about 5-6 hours on this one and did not see any other bug's, i almost finished the game.

SaGa Frontier: The game has audio but loads to a black screen and when you press button's you can hear a selection sound but the intro audio re starts every time and nothing happen's.

Tales of Destiny II: Voice audio issue's and cut scene audio issue's, the game seem's to play fine but the audio has issue's on all XA/CDDA modes.

I think the MegaMan Legends audio glitch you speak of has something to do with the XA decoding of which Matt and company will be creating a new decoding algorithm for. Playing some games like Lunar, or Metal Gear Solid VR Missions, you can easily notice how loud the sound is on those FMV's due to the XA processing as-is.

I send them a video, it is not low or loud sound, it is basically the same sound issue that has happened with other titles. I have no idea what causes it but from my experience the most common bugs is either, choppy audio or audio with poping noise's.
