Summoner 2 - Black screen / Freeze problem
#1
So I'm at my wits end trying to get Summoner 2 to work, Google doesn't return anything helpful and the PCXS2 wiki says it's playable, but for me it goes black and hangs at the intro video after I start a new game every time with the error message;

microVU1 Warning: Branch, Branch, Branch! [0218]
microVU1 Warning: Branch, Branch, Branch! [0218]
microVU1 Warning: Branch, Branch, Branch! [0218]
microVU1 Warning: Branch, Branch, Branch! [0218]

The game works fine on my PS2 and not a visible scratch on the disc, I've made probably around 40 iso's from my other games using ImgBurn, so I don't think this ones a bad dump, but to be sure I made it again with the same results. I'm just going to give up on this title unless someone here has been able to play it on PCSX2 1.0.0.

Is this just one of those problematic games or is there some workaround I'm not aware of?

My settings are all pretty much set to default, but I did play around with random changes to see if it would fix anything, but no progress.

I've tried that but the black screen / freezes still happens, the only difference is no "microVU1 Warning: Branch, Branch, Branch! [0218]" error in the console.

Just tried both D3D9 and D3D11 software and hardware, no change.

The last time it was reported playable was 0.9.8 so I'd suggest trying the latest svn build, if that doesn't work you will have to use 0.9.8

Tried with the latest svn build r5444, and it's still borked, guess something broke between one of the old versions of PCSX2 and the new ones, tis a shame.

I don't know how to find an old rev from that date, but I did go back to 0.9.8 r4600 and the game now works, microVU1 Warning: Branch, Branch, Branch! [0218] is still a thing in the console but at least it works.

Anyone able to add this to the bug tracker? I'd love to see this problem get fixed in a future build. Also thanks guys for the help.
