View Full Version : Help with starting
July 23rd, 2005, 07:03
I've used Deamon to mount the game (in iso format, downloaded all the plugins, and try to start PCSX. It just shows a black screen and doesn't load. I've waited for about 20 mins and nothing. No errors show up. Help please.
P.E.Op.S. Soft Driver 1.17 (Graphics)
Eternal SPU Plugin 1.41 (Sound)
Xeven's Cdr Driver 0.93 (Cdrom)
The game is Yu-Gi-Oh Forbidden Memories.

Yu-gi-oh is copy protected, you'll need to get a ppf patch in order to play it.

Ok, got the ppf file, what do I do with it?

locate the code of the game (it's something like sles-12345, or scus-54321, something along that lines), wich is usually written over the cd or on the box, and rename the ppf patch to that (but keep the extension). Then, move it to the patches subfolder on PCSX's folder (taking a guess here, it might be a little different as i don't have PCSX currently installed here, and i don't recall if it has the same folder layout as ePSXe). IIRC you had to fiddle a bit with the options to make it autoload the ppf patches. Then, start the game.
Alternatively, get yourself ppf-o-matic (google (http://www.google.com) is your friend), make an iso of the game, and apply the ppf to the iso using ppf-o-matic. Then, just load the game.

Ok, I got Ppf-o-matic, and applied the ppf file. It said the image file was incorrect. I went on, after applying it, and nothing changed when I loaded the game.

Ok, got the PSX intro to play. Now it just gives me the Memory Card/CD Reader menu instead of playing the disk.
