You mean 1406\1410 or the one from here:
Open PS2 Loader d051a02 2020-01-26_17:07:08Grand Theft Auto San Andreas SLUS_20??.??
get stuck in logo splash screen. wont move. SMB and HDD.
Works fine on SCPH 90010 (WTF?)
messing with MODE 1 seemed to fix SLUS_213.59
Just use Mode 1 if the speed is too fast. This happens a lot, but most game will only have trouble with framerates. Some will actually have a problem loading textures. PS2 just wasn't made for high-speed data transfers.
In MOST cases it has NOTHING to do with "high-speed data transfers", a.k.a. "bandwidth"...
It is more of an issue due to "too fast ANSWERS (timing-.related, not the amound of data transfered)" and other timing-related stuff, depending on the entire setup (both hard- & software)...
Yes and even when it doesn't cause issues it greatly slowdowns the loading, so I don't enable it if not necessary (I've almost 500 games into the HDD and 90% of them run perfectly in UDMA 4 without the need of MODE 1).
That's why I said, just use Mode 1 if the speed is too fast.
In my experience, most games will work fine with UDMA4, but not optimally. Even though you shorten the loading time, there are problems with the data coming too fast if PS2 is streaming graphics, which can cause slowdowns that don't normally happen in the game.
I cannot make this game to work from HDD:
ATV Offroad Fury 4 [SCES-54688]
On the @Algol list it's given as working with MODE 6 ON (same on PS2-Home list too but referring to the USA version), I tested the game with the same OPL version (1319) but Always got BSOD after initials logos/advertisements.
Tried: MODE 6 / MODE 3+6 / MODE 1+2 / MODE 6 with MDMA 0
I'll check it with other OPL versions asap.
From what I remember it is DVD-9 game.
Mostly test with latest version (currently 1436), 0.9.3 or even 0.8 should be helpful.
The strange thing is as you mention game seems to work with 1319 on some compatibility lists.
It's weird, I hope it isn't some incompatibility with my set. I tested with and without VMC, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't make any difference, it always passes the MC check at game's boot.
My mystake, on @Algol list it is the third game actually (the 4J writing confused me), and being the Ps2-Home test referring to the USA version, then the PAL one was untested. It may be not compatible.
I tested also on OPL 0.9.3 and 0.9.2 with same results.
You mean BSOD after this splash screen:
Is Sega Ages 2500 Series Vol. 1: Phantasy Star Generation 1 still broken unless played from a custom build with a very low speed hard-coded?
I have the same problem through SMB.
Thanks, added into 1st post.
Can somebody check ATV Offroad Fury 4 with an IDE HDD using Mode 1+3+6 and the PS2 Logo option On (on a PAL console)?
I think star ocean till the end of times pal cd 1 don't boot on smb with mode 6 turned ON
but star ocean USA works strange
As for Star Ocean: Till the End of Time...
this game should be on DVD not CD:
Did you tried other compatibility modes except of 6 or any other combination (6+2... 6+2+3)?
It's an dvd I said cd 1 but is dvd i tried modes 1+2+3+6 don´t boot but USA version boots with mode 6 on
I've tried Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (SLES_820.28) with mode 6 through SMB...
Game should at least boot and I can start new game.
I've made this test with OPL 1436:
md5sum of disk 1: "c9f4f915e172215bb1b0427d1e77dea5".
Could you check md5sum of your ISO?
Did you use the same OPL version?
Did you enable VMC, GSM or any other additional option?
