I've just started trying to use PCSX2 and the first thing I've tried is playing Shadow Hearts 2. It plays the opening videos perfectly and the main menu, but after selecting new game it just goes to a black screen and stays there indefinitely. Any Ideas?
Intel Core 2 Quad 2.50GHz
ATI Radeon HD 4850
Game is working fine here. Post which PCSX2 version you are using,plugins and their settings.
Your settings look ok...I guess you don't have the iso image mounted with some other program do you? If so umount it.
Also try running the game and posting here the last few lines the console prints after it crashes
Is it PAL or NTSC? Did you try running the original dvd in case the iso is damaged? My PAL copy here after selecting new game shows the intro video,so I guess yours gets stuck there?
