Impossible blend for D3D (Valkyrie Profile Silmeria)
#1
This is the error I suddenly started getting in Valkyrie Profile Silmeria (NTSC-J). The last time I played the game was a couple weeks ago and got an hour into it without any problems, but this time I can't play for a minute without it freezing and getting that error. It's still the same version of PCSX2 and the same settings, the only thing I've done since then is update AMD Catalyst from v11.7 to 11.8. I tried looking for older Win7 x64 versions but can only find XP/Vista drivers. Can someone help?

Edit: Nevermind I found it... Gonna see if it's indeed a driver issue

Nope, still getting the error

"Impossible blend for D3D: (Cs - 0) * As + Cs"

It can happen anywhere, usually a minute or two after starting the game. Tried it on several revisions, no hacks except for Tri Ace fix

Oh I think I found the problem... I had cheats enabled Blush After disabling them everything plays as it used to.

I'm not sure if it's my specific cheats or cheats altogether though. Mine are below, they're exp/money multipliers and do work but look kind of weird compared to the ones I've been converting for my other games...

patch=1,EE,203D95A0,extended,00000000
patch=1,EE,103D95A8,extended,00002200

patch=1,EE,E0020003,extended,003D8D80
patch=1,EE,203D8D80,extended,00000000
patch=1,EE,203D8D88,extended,00108200

Has anyone been able to cheat in VP2 and not have it freeze? Biggrin

EDIT: I checked back the site I got the code from and again I completely overlooked something... There's a code you need to use in addition to the above in order to prevent freezes. Now the cheats work properly and the mystery is solved!

Of what I've understand from the pnach tutorial, for PCSX2 you never have to use a mastercode Smile Though I had issues with Persona 3 myself when I had my cheats on, I got a crapload of Artefacts, I paused the game, disabled cheats, resume, started a new game, paused again enabled cheats and resumed and voila it worked like it should Smile Kinda funny actually that cheats can intervene with graphical Artefacts Smile

Oh that's no master code, just a mandatory code... I've run into it before, some codes require other codes to function properly. I wish they'd just lump them together and save people the trouble!
