Fighting Force: Black screen after character select

Post by joacoza » December 14th, 2019, 11:19 am

After selecting a character, the game shows a load screen, and after that it goes black, meanwhile the PSIO's led stays on.
Tried on Midboot, and all EXTDSP settings. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Is the image Redump compatible? Does it require a CU2 sheet? Did you use the recent versions of System Console (2.5 or newer) to create your images?

Yes, it's redump compatible, and It does require a CU2 sheet, which i generated using the latest version of System Console (2.7).

Did you also merge it via SysCon? If so, was that with or without the +2 seconds option?

Yep, merged it with SysCon also, without the +2s option. Tried with it enabled, too, but made no difference.

NTSC or PAL?

If NTSC, which revision?
Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four, five times more, perhaps not even that.

The game is broken on V2.6.10.

Damn it, well thanks for the help anyways, guys! I'll wait for the next update.
Should I report this to the 2.6.10 Bug Reports thread?

I don't think Matt is taking any bug reports right now, especially for CDDA games. The next firmware is supposed to fix issues like this one, so we all just have to wait. Seems like the Driver freeze and some frame pacing issues are slowing down the release, though.
