I've tried multiple copies with the same issue. Any suggestions?

Try disabling Fastboot.

Try Midboot and all of the K1V modes.

It's probably been fixed on the latest firmware, but what do you mean by 'patched'. LibCrypt has been removed?

He means English language patched. Policenaughts was a JP only release with heavily JP text throughout, so only good for native speakers or anyone who could read Japanese.

We can't use patched games as a test platform to fix PSIO sorry. This will have to be ignored.

The translated version works without problems.
I checked on the latest firmware.

Prepatched version. It loads with Fastboot and Midboot. I have this game, but it's too much trouble to make images and patch them just for testing.

I didn't test it on PSIO yet, but the fan-translated version of Policenauts works perfectly from disc on real hardware.

I think something is wrong with your copy, though. The game should at least boot.

It did boot using 2.6.7 and Midboot, 0 issues so far. Thanks ladies/gents for dealing with my shenanigans and poor wording.

For the record I was using a pre-patched version.

Great that it's booting for you!

Please, drop a word if it plays 100% after you're done with this classic. We need more reports about completed games.

Will do, the only thing I've 100% so far is Legend of Dragoon and FFIX both NTSC copies.

Great to know Legend of Dragoon is compatible. I want to complete that game at some point.

Completed it two years ago for the first time (without PSIO :(), and really liked it. It's somewhat worse than my all time favourite FF series, but art style, videos and music are cream of the crop. It took me some time to get used to battle system though, you have to have really good reflexes for RPG fan :D
