I've been searching for awhile now but I haven't even been able to find anyone with the same problem even. Anyway, the game starts up just fine and I haven't seen any slow downs. But I can't progress after I meet Pepitta for the first time at the hotel in the beginning of the game. The cut scene will play, finish, and then fade to black but it never unfades. It just stays a black screen. I let it sit there for about 10 minuets before. I'm using version 0.9.8.
Any help or idea are appreciated. And thanks in advance.
Are you by chance using any undub patch for the game? Also, are you using any non default settings for PCSX2 (speed hacks especially?). Are you loading the game from a saved state or a normal memory card save?
I've had the game lock up on me from using cycle steal speedhacks occasionally.
Well at first I thought it might have been because I was running it from the disk so I used imgburn to rip it but still no luck with it. I could get past that part just fine on the console, well I could when I last did it. Now that I think about it, I should try it in a system to rule out the disk.

I had a similar problem on the PS2 console (the real physical PS2 and game). But my problem was in the scene where you have to switch from Disc 1 to Disc 2 same kind of freeze happened couldn't solve it and had to return the game and get another one (that was about 7 years ago).
My first PS2 was HORRIBLE and scratched all my games but one thing that helped with freezing games is to turn on the Disc Diagnosis in the system BIOS. This is on the real console so I have no idea if it would work on pcsx2 but it's worth a try...
