For some reason, i can't get this game to play. I've tried multiple versions of gsdx, multiple version of PCSX2 itself, ZeroGS.
It hanged on most of these combinations when initializing the graphics plugin. Right now, i've gotten it as far as displaying a blank screen, with the console's last line being IOP Output something. It just freezes there.
Compatibility list on the site says it's Playable ( Green ) with 0.9.6. I'm curious to know as to who and more specifically HOW that person got it right.
Specs: Q8200, 8800GT, 2GB DDR2, WinXP Pro SP3
Combinations i've tried: Latest beta versions of PCSX2 and GSDX, last stable of both, speedhacks removed, different GSDX SSE versions, ZeroGS.
It's definetly not broken, because my .hack//G.U. games play fine.
Anybody know the answer to this?
You're definitely doing something wrong because it works fine here (and has been working fine for quite some time)
Use the 0.9.6 release pack and post your configuration for it.
PCSX 0.9.6 binary
GSDX 0.1.14 SSE4.1
P.E.Op.S. SPU2 1.9.0
Linuzappz Iso CDVD 0.7.0
EERec fully enabled
Emu hangs at 'Update IOP Module', i have to manually kill the process.
Are you running an iso or the dvd? If you are running an iso make sure you do not have it mounted with any other program.
Also use SPU2-X for sound and File->Run CD/DVD
Obviously i'm running the ISO, that's what Linuzappz is for. I ripped it so i wouldn't have to put up with the disc drive's noisyness. And no, i don't have it mounted. Out of spite i just tried the original disc, and that didn't work, either.
And i don't want to use SPU2-X. It broke the sound for all the games i have ( Kingdom Hearts, Chaos Legion, .hack ). I doubt it makes any difference to change the sound plugin because it's the graphics plugin that seems to be failing.

First,no it is not obviously the graphics plugin. You are getting a black screen,meaning a soft crash which can be caused by nearly anything really.
Have you tried updating DirectX with the webupdater? Also,paste in [code] tags the console output and post it here
Edit: Also try going in advanced and hitting 'default'
Really strange...everything looks fine there. I've got the PAL version so it could be a bug only in the NTSC one but I doubt that...
So you've tried using the GSdx in the 0.9.6 release pack,setting it to pixel shader 3,checking native and DX9 hardware and got the same result? Try using DX9 software mode in case it is somehow messing up badly,but looks like an emulator issue.
Does the latest PCSX2 beta behave any differently?
Latest beta version hangs at the line: 'MTGS > Thread Started, Opening GS Plugin...'
I have the PAL version too, so this is really awkward.
Just to be sure, i guess i'll start fresh with the 0.9.6. files. Though i really hate copying back the memcards and reconfiguring my joypads..
I'm starting to think my XP install is shot. It's been acting weirdly as of late, anyway.
Hmm ok using the latest beta try this:
Select cdvdnull as cdvd plugin,set gsdx to dx9 software renderer,go to run->execute,configure your bios and exit the emulator after you're done.
Then switch back to linuzappz and dx9 hardware and try again
