It should do, so that means I won't use your Memory Card image because it's easier if you re-test it for us when we release the next firmware.

Awesome! Can't wait to hear the results :)

I'm just working on the Menu System still and Yuri has been really working hard on the firmware with me too (hence all the updates), so once we've finished, we'll release them. This is a major update. It's fixed a lot of problems 8-)

Once you guys have this PSIO project's compatibility mastered- these things will hopefully be a license to print some easy money set aside from production costs. Which also means time invested into other projects!!! 99.9% is right around the corner!!!

You are god amongst men, Thank you!!!!

By the way. I had a suggestion. Installing it seems to be the tricky selling point of the PS-IO, specially for people who live very far from Australia, like me. I don't live in a country where you can easily find a professional modder either so I thought that you could probably overcome this problem in the same way Jason from gametechus did with the nes hdmi mod, which was by rounding up a list of trusted modders around the world.

This way, warranty on the hdmi mod kit is only provided if you used one of the approved modders. It also serves as a guide for whomever needs professional install services and does not live in Europe or North America. I was hoping to find a professional modder in my country in South America, but it's really tough for me to discern having no technical know-how.

So, how about it?

Game compatibility notes:
Jackie Chan Stuntmaster seems to be working: http://cybdyn-systems.com.au:82/browse/CSGC-80
Hi Matt,

I upgraded to the latest ARM last night and still appear to be having freezing issues with this game. I think the easiest way I can reproduce it is by waiting too long in "map select" area before the first level. The game freezes and a short loop of the music keeps repeating.

I was able to play the first level without issues, but after clearing it I ran into the same problem where the game freezes and a short loop of the music repeats forever.

I'll try to get some better details when I play the game again tonight.

I'll add to the website soon an option to "Become a Professional Installer" where technicians can order Switch Boards in a bulk lot and become official/approved installers for us after passing a verification stage which we approve.

Strange, "Jackie Chan Stuntmaster" seemed stable for us. I couldn't get it to freeze at all! Maybe wait until ARM 2.4.2 since this update is big and has changed a lot of stuff.

say no to drugs kids.........great work on the boost in Compatibility PSIO team :praise. I find it interesting the Ridge Racer games and Rage Racer on PSIO have problems , along with POPStarter for PS2. They must have some strange code in the games that affects both PSIO and POPStarter.
