Re: [2.6.19] Rockman x5 and x6 cannot boot in latest firmware

It might be related to the Crash Bandicoot Racing crashing on NTSC consoles.

Seem like there's a bug on NTSC machines right now. Very strange, but probably easy to fix.

Tested the PAL version on my 5502. Bug confirmed! It's wayyyyyy out of sync. Nice find. I will get this fixed immediately because it's in my top 5 list of my favourite PlayStation games :)
PSIO can actually affect sync in games :?:

And won't this fix break any of the other fixes to audio?

Try resetting with START+SELECT (on the initialization screen, hold the buttons) and then use Midboot.
tested on this,. system resetting with all refreshed defaults ,still black screen and no loading after click game loading.
Try a different SD card.

Re: [V2.6.19] Crash bandicoot racing freezes after first cutscene

Whatever changes in the past couple of firmwares for SD card read should be looked into because the last thing you want is people needing to play SD card model/brand/format lotteries to play their games, especially when it wasn't really as much of a problem before. Because the timings were far more...

Re: [V2.6.19] Crash bandicoot racing freezes after first cutscene

I recommend trying different SD cards. :) I also think this is the key. Even if this is a change in the Menu System, I think it's related to SD cards. Maybe even the SD card compatibility gets lowers when the CD-ROM emulation gets higher? The windows for timings might get more and more narrow as th...

So weird. After all these tests, there doesn't seem to be one common denominator.

In the past this game worked fine without any tinkering on my part.
When was that? Which firmware?

Re: [V2.6.19] Crash bandicoot racing freezes after first cutscene

It might depend on the type of modchip.

Or it's, again, something with the filesystem. Maybe it fails if the SD card is fragmented or when it uses a particular chip? Very strange since it seems there's no reason or rhyme to the models it works and doesn't work with...

Re: [V2.6.19] Crash bandicoot racing freezes after first cutscene

Crash Bandicoot Racing uses anti-modchip protection. Maybe that's it?

The American version does NOT have anti-modchip protection.

Re: [V2.6.19] Crash bandicoot racing freezes after first cutscene

Definitely works perfectly on SCPH-1002. I tried it multiple times and it always goes through that intro into the main menu with the flag background.

And yes, I mean the Japanese version.

Re: Resident Evil 2 (Dual Shock) won't boot using LoadExec (v2.6.19)

With K1V4, it didn't boot for some people, unless they used the search function. It seems to depend on the SD card, but it also might depend on the console version. There's something up with that: Crash Bandicoot Racing works for me and AMG, but not for several other users. :?

This seems to depend on the console version.

Matt, you need to start cross-checking changes on multiple PS1s.

Re: PSIO Development Discussion Thread

When the "fastboot on midboot" option is disabled, the playstation crashes. Something really weird is going on here... For me, disabling the "fastboot on midboot" option does not crash my PS1. However, the Tomb Raider 3 demo in Fighting Force 1.1 NTSC crashes on a black screen for me on exit. For y...

Re: "Fighting Force (USA) (v1.1)" [Menu System V2.6.16]

I also realized that when entering the tomb raider 3 demo, and then leaving the demo and opening the fighting force, the game has no sound from the music and videos (FMV). I'm surprised you can even exit the TR3 demo. For me, Kito and AMG, the TR3 demo crashes on a black screen when attempting to e...

I have a US region Playstation playing with the US version of the game.
Then it makes no sense that PSIO would affect the sync. Are you using an HD or UHD, by any chance?

Somebody with an NTSC PS1 needs to cross-check this.

Re: [V2.6.19] Crash bandicoot racing freezes after first cutscene

Also, when copy/pasting the new MENU.SYS into my sd card, I use a really shitty usb adapter when I'm lazy to use anything better which is across another room, and it disconnects a lot, yet windows still says it's ok. I checked both the MENU.SYS and Crash bandicoot hashes after copying them, and the...

You need to play the NTSC version on an NTSC console (or mod a PAL console with an NTSC crystal oscillator).

Re: [V2.6.19] Crash bandicoot racing freezes after first cutscene

Change "PlayStation Logo Popup" to OFF and re-check the game. same thing happens. Just to exhaust all options, check with different SD cards. Or reformat the current one, but change the number of folders. The game works for me, but I can only make a video with a PS Vita, which is cumbersome. If you...
