    I remember that with e.g Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy,
    I've to enable mode 2,3,6, so at lest 3 should work.

    Try to add your reports with tested\tried compatibility modes & with MD5 checksum.

    I've tried Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 1 (SLES_536.61) PAL version with OPL 1180 through USB,
    MD5 checksum = 970bd430d7d3e262f8add3653f891152.
    I didn't need to enable any compatibility mode(s).

    For Ratchet and Clank v2.00 (SCES_509.16) PAL version with OPL 1180 through USB,
    MD5 checksum = 32b8347b2bb80cd30d30ba0601ebb0ee,
    I also didn't need to enable any compatibility modes.
    Game starts fine after selecting new game.

    With Ratchet and Clank 2 (SCES_516.07) PAL version with OPL 1180 through USB,
    MD5 checksum = e184fc2a495a4654f748a8e8c587261c.
    Game is booting without any problems.

    So... In my setup everything runs fine.
    There can be some differences between PAL and NTSC version, but...

    could you try another USB HDD?

    How's about Twisted Metal: Black freezes after trying to exit the level? Same for USB/SMB/HDD, same for all modes/cold boot. For some reason OPL compatibility list says only USB and SMB are affected, but that's wrong, as it has exactly the same behavior for the HDD installs as well

    Can you give more info?
    What version of an OPL did you tried (did you tried OPL 1191)?
    What tool you used to install this game?
    MD5 checksum.
    ID?

    I've tried 1179, but I don't see any recent TMB fixes, so I don't expect any magic from 1191.
    WinHIIP 1.7.6
    Redump.org US image.
    As I've said, it's a long-standing bug, ps2-home and http://sx.sytes.net compat. lists both have it for 0.9.1, but both list it for USB and SMB only, while the HDD install acts exactly the same.

    http://www.psx-place.com/threads/open-ps2-loader-v0-9-3.13415/#post-83141 -- I've noticed someone has already tried to bring some attention to it here :)

    I've the same symptoms with 1191, OPL 0.9.1, so... "magic" in latest rev doesn't seems to help.

    I've tried HDLGameInstaller 0.817 (09/09/2018), but... the results are the same.

    Thanks for clarifying this.

    US one boots fine from USB for me (but only if defragmented, freezes with white screen otherwise).

    All games on USB devices needs to defragmented, otherwise they'll not work properly or will not boot.
    Currently OPL should warn, that the game is fragmented.
    There was some OPL reversions that do not required defragmentation, but it was lets say... long ago.

    I think that the problem with PS2 logo and boot from USB was fixed in later revisions.

    BTW have you tried Half-Life: Blue Shift:

    Title = SRS: Street Racing Syndicate
    ID = SLES_530.45
    Media = DVD
    OPL version = r1193
    Device = HDD, USB
    Mode(s) = 1+6+4\cold boot
    VMC = not tried
    IGR = not tried
    Compatible = see notes
    MD5 Checksum = cf983b7266fa17a8597a9f418c090508
    Notes = without mode 6 game may crash\freeze at random moments.
    Mode 1 helps with performance "stuttering".
    To pass this screen:
    [​IMG]
    I've to hold "E1 launch key" to launch OPL at cold boot.
    Or use mode 4 to skip first FMV which causes BSOD.
    Occasionally there are "weird\unusual" sounds (mode 2 or 3 doesn't help).

    "[SLUS-21780] Ferrari Challenge - Trofeo Pirelli (USA)" doesn't work at all, it seems, freezes after checking the memory card, none of the 'modes' nor the cool boot help. Haven't tried the HDD installation so far, but a little bit of googling reveals an old bug report from 2010 that it freezes exactly at the same spot in OPL-HDD and acts absolutely the same in the HD Loader.

    Maybe adding through "form" will be more accurate, because some informations are missing.

    E.g:

    Title = Ferrari Challenge - Trofeo Pirelli
    ID = SLUS_217.80
    Media = Probably DVD?
    OPL version = ?
    Device = HDD?
    Mode(s) = Tried all, see notes
    VMC = ? (probably, not tried)
    IGR = ? (probably, not tried)
    Compatible = No, see notes
    MD5 Checksum = ?
    Notes = Freezes after checking the memory card, none of the 'modes' nor the cool boot help.

    I hoped someone would also verify this on his side before 'forming' it (especially since it pretends to be the 'doesn't work at all' case).

    I understand, but you forgot to add what commit do you tried and MD5 Checksum.
    I've bolded these two entries.
    The "form" might help to not forget about these details.

    Same as above, 1179 and redump.org-matching image.

    Media = DVD, Device = SMB (HDD has been reported by another person in 2010), haven't tried VMC, IGR worked after the game freezed (disabling IGR aka mode 6 doesn't help, as stated above). MD5 = e15808634f24b57585578f25a9e801df

    About Ferrari Challenge i tested it long time ago in OPL 0.7 in the internal HDD, worked fine using Mode 6.
    In a first bot the game worked fine whithout using Mode 6, but after a soft reset with the IGR it freezed,
    and the only thing i was found for prevent this freeze is using Mode 6 for quit the IGR.

    I don't know if Mode 6 is still needed in the last OPL 0.9.3 version or betas.

    Best regards.

    Thanks @Zarper for your report.
    Did you tried to combine compatibility modes (e.g. 1+3+6)?
    You're using SATA-HDD, so it may means that you have got third-party NA (e.g. Gamestar) or you've genuine $ony NA+SATA mod?
    You disk is HDD or SSD?
