    PS2: Scph 39001
    MOD: some internal modchip to read physical backups (installed back in 2004 so im not sure wich one)

    Hi, the game never starts, it stays on a black screen until I use IGR to go back to the ps2 default screen.
    Same happens with Phantasy Star Universe Ambition of the Illuminus (SLUS_216.31). Other games runs ok.
    I have not tested it on USB or in other OPL versions.

    Why you haven't additionally tried any compatibility modes if you're only getting BSOD?
    E.g. mode 3+6 might help.
    Also try for test OPL 0.9.2:
    https://github.com/ifcaro/Open-PS2-Loader/releases.
    Maybe with this version game might actually work, as it is written in that list.

    I've checked Phantasy Star Universe (SLES_543.08) only with OPL 1406
    and it seems that none of the compatibility modes helps.
    I'm only getting BSOD at start.

    Thanks for your report.
    I'll try to add "Phantasy Star Universe"
    and "Phantasy Star Universe: Ambition of the Illuminus"
    into Game Bug Reports:

    Thank you, I have yet to try the suggested things, but yeah the second one has the same behaviour, those are the only tittles with major problems I have found so far since they dont run at all.

    It is possible to have more than one OPL installed on a memory card for compatibility issues like this one?

    Also Ive found other changes in games that has other restrictions or lack the ones listed in this list: http://www.ps2-home.com/forum/page/opl-game-compatibility-list-P

    For example Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance (usa version) is listed as not compatible with PADEMU, but it worked for me with a wired usb original dualshock 4 without problems so far on OPL 1627.

    And there are others that dont start with PADEMU like The Operative No one lives forever even when the same list dont say anything about it.

    Other games like Silent Hill 2 and 3 works very ok with GSM on 1080i with some V Pos tweaks.

    You can have as much OPL on MC* as you like, as long as you have space for it.
    Only filename should be different (e.g. OPL_1392.ELF, OPL_1406.ELF...).
    You can launch them through u\wLe or make a shortcut for it in FMCB Configurator and use FMCB menu to do the same thing.

    You can also try to launch them from USB or from HDD.

    There are also other lists:
    https://www.psx-place.com/threads/open-ps2-loader-game-compatibility-lists.19037/.

    I'm not maintaining none of them, so I don't know if I can help you with this one.

    I've updated a little bit Game Bug Reports by adding link to your report (currently it should be #11):
    https://www.psx-place.com/threads/open-ps2-loader-game-bug-reports.19401/.

    Thanks for your feedback\support.
