Ratchet and Clank 3-4 Freezing loading screen
#1
Ratchet And Clank 3 and 4 (Up Your Arsenal and Deadlocked) Freeze at first loading screen
I have recently downloaded PCSX2 0.96 (stable) and 0.97(beta).
I actually started with 0.97, but upon experiencing this error, I downloaded the other release.

First off, Here are my specs:
_________________________________________________________
AMD Athlon X2 240 Regor Dual-Core 2.8 Ghz per core 2MB L2 Cache
2066 Mhz FSB
3 GB DDR3 RAM
nVidia GeForce 210 GFX card (589 Mhz OC'd to 733, 512mb vRam)
1440x900 Acer widescreen display
__________________________________________________________
Now, on to the problem

With both games, EVERYTHING works perfectly until it gets to the screen loading the first level. It shows the ship flying to the stage (the standard loading screen) but at the point where it is supposed to start the actual level it freezes, and all i see is the last frame of the loading screen. the emulator doesn't crash, and it still shows 60.0fps nothing seems to be out of the ordinary on the titlebar of the window or the log window.

I manage to get ~225 fps when i have the limiter off.

I have been looking around for a solution to this problem and there aren't any issues that is like this one specifically, even though, i tried the suggestions they were giving for somewhat similar issues. I know the game is not completely incompatible because a friend of mine plays the game deadlocked perfectly, no freezes. no errors no issues at all.
SOOOOO i decided to start this thread.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I HAVE TRIED THE FOLLOWING{on 0.96}:
Tri-Ace games fix

All the different GFX plugins(ZeroGS, GSDx sse 2, 3, and 4){SSE4 does NOT work on my computer}

all the different CDVD plugins {the P.E.op.S doesn't work, says "please insert a PlayStation 2 format disc"}

i have tried the following SpeedHacks individually and some together:
Default, 1.5 and 2.0 Cycle rate

The following Advanced Options
EE Recs: positive and Chop/Zero, Normal and Extra + Preserve Clamp Modes Flush to Zero and Denormals are Zero

VU Recs: Nearest and Chop/Zero Round Modes, None, Normal, Extra, and Extra + preserve Clamp Modes, Flush to Zero, Denormals are Zero


INTC Sync Hack
Enable IOP x2 Cycle Rate


The Following CPU Options:
EErec, VU0rec, VU1rec, Multi Thread

The Following Frame Limit options (On CPU options page)
Normal, Limit with a limit of 60.0 fps, a minimum of 60.0 fps, and a consecutive skip of 2fps(when the speed drops below 60.0)
_______________________________________________________________
Every different combination I tried, The same result happened.
I'm at the end of my rope here, im begging you guys from my knees, please help me out if you can!
I'm ready to give up, but i really LOVED the ratchet and clank games.
Anyways, other than that, Everything looks and works fine. I have yet to see PCSX2 crash.
P.S. Please don't mind my random spelling/punctuation/grammar errors, my keyboard likes to stick.
P.P.S. I have been up since 11:00 PM trying to get this cursed thing to work X.X

Sorry but just removing the "downloaded BIOS" part doesn't take back admitting to it.
