[Bug Report] Spider-Man 3 [NTSC-U/PAL]
#1
Game Title: Spider-Man 3
Region: NTSC-U & PAL
Region ID: SLUS 21552 & SLES 54723
Game CRC: 29873A0C (NTSC), 0C881B25 (PAL)

_________________________________________

Bugs & Notes:
Issue 1:
If you have Memory Cards inserted, the game will lock up during the loading of the first mission.

Issue 2:
Sound in the game may randomly lock up as well, causing the sounds to loop in a glitchy way. (As heard in the video).

Issue 3:
Completing mission 1 will take you to the loading screen, at which point it will permanently be stuck there. The game still 'functions', but it's just constantly loading and does not advance.

During all these issues, nothing strange can be found in the console log window, it acts as if nothing is wrong.


Possible work-around / Temporary fix:
For Issue 1; Ejecting ALL Memory Cards allows you to load up the game just fine, and Mission 1 will play correctly (up until completing that mission at least). I don't know of any working work-arounds for the other 2 issues.


Video Example:
This is relevant for issue 1 mostly.

Currently testing without mVU Flag Hack and MTVU Hack, to see if it continues on the loading screen.

[Edit]
Game randomly froze up in the middle of mission 1 now. Could be related to issue 1 still, or issue 2 as the sound is bugged up too.

[Edit 2]
Still doesn't advance on loading screen after mission 1 has been completed. This is with ALL hacks off.

Give it a try with the SSE4 builds of GSdx and OpenGL renderer as well

Does "EE timing hack" fix the issue? If it doesn't, a block dump of the issue might be useful.

To be honest, I don't think it would help. I might be wrong though. Tongue

To fix the freezing,use the Asynch Mix option in the SPU2-X plugin,sound will not be too good and will not be synched when more than 50\60 fps but the game will work,no random freezing,i've tested it multiple times
Also set speedhack the VU cycle steal to 1 and the EE cyclerate to -1,that's how i got it to work,i get it from the start to the intro movie,when it freezes on the loading screen (after the cutscene of Spider-man breaking the window and saving the redhead woman).

Sorry, but block dump? I assume it's similar to GS dumps? I've been out of the loop for a while.

My post feels rather weird when you quote it like that. Tongue

Either way, check Linuz ISO section on the configuration guide, they've provided details on how to create a block dump there. Smile

You don't actually have to use the Linuz ISO CDVD plugin to create block dumps. PCSX2 will create a block dump if you change the CdvdDumpBlocks setting in PCSX2_vm.ini to enabled. I think the dump will be created in the directory where pcsx2.exe is (at least for the portable version).

I wish I knew that yesterday when I spent 4 hours converting Gran Turismo 4 to a single layer disc Tongue
