View Full Version : ok.... iso problems once more
May 22nd, 2008, 15:37
I have read through quite a few threads on how isos arnt responding and things, but none have answered my problem.
I have an iso. (also tried the .bin version)
When I try to play it, all I get is a black screen, i have left it to sort itsellf out for about 12 mins, still nothing.
heres my settings:
Video Pete's D3D Driver 1.76
Sound ePSXe SPU core 1.5.2.
CD P.E.Op.S. CDR Driver 1.4
Bios: tried both SCPH1001(USA) and SCPH9002 (apparently PAL?)
Sorry if there is a blindingly obvious thing that has stopped the iso from working!

What game are you trying to play, have you tried from Cd also?

Spyro the Dragon, I have tried running the disc and that works fine, I created the Iso using MagicIso before lending the disc to a mate

it might need a .ppf patch if your disc is PAL. do you have a .cue file that goes with the .bin?
May 22nd, 2008, 16:10
yep, same folder as the .bin file as well.

yeah if you have both then they should work fine, .bin/.cue is a valid format for psx games. im going with it needing a .ppf patch then, it circumvents the copy protection in PAL versions which i would imagine your disc is.

ahh, makes sense, and where can i pick up one of the delightful .ppf patches?
May 22nd, 2008, 16:30
well this is where the hair begins to fall out because since i dont live in an area where PAL region games are sold, i have never really had to use a .ppf patch myself. call it being lucky or just call it being jonc2006™, i dont know, but i must admit i havnt the slightest clue on where the little bastards are actually found on the internets. but you can rest assured that they do indeed exist.
however, googling ".ppf patch" or "spyro .ppf patch" might get you going in the right direction. i think ngemu has (or had) a section for .ppf patches but from what i have been told, the link doesnt work, probably due to communist infestation but thats just my opinion. if you want to try it yourself i think this (http://www.ngemu.com/misc.php?action=ppf) is it (this is the same link found in the troubleshooting FAQ if i remember correctly). i wish i could be of more help here but unfortunately the powers that be limit my usefulness when it comes to .ppf patches.
