[DQ8] [PAL] CRC not working on full boot and language problem
#1
Exclamation 
Hi everyone!

I am currently trying to play the ISO of the pal version of Dragon Quest VIII in french with some cheats and hack (including the PAL to NTSC hack with allow to play at 60Hz instead of 50Hz), but I am having an issue with the full boot mode, which doesn't recognize the CRC of the game.

Here is what I get:

After searching a bit I realized that it is working in the fast boot mode, except the game is then switched in English (with or without games hacks), with no way of turning it back to French in-game.

Here is what I get, just in case:

Therefore I have only two choices:
- playing the game in full boot mode in French without the hacks
- playing the game in fast boot mode in English but with the hacks

Does anyone knows a trick to force the CRC detection in full boot mode?
Or a way to force the game in French in fast boot mode?

Well, the game is French in full boot because full boot completely executes the BIOS, and it will pass on the language setting there. Fast boot doesn't, so that explains that.

Try playing without the hacks in French until you get to a save point. Save, and then try fast boot and load your save. Maybe it will go back to French, since the save will have been saved under French.

or you could simply enable the hacks and fixes manually instead of using auto detection.
this way, they'll work even when using full boot.

Yes I tried that, sadly the game stays in English (the language settings don't depend on the save) Sad

That seems to be a good solution, but how do you enable them manually?

Strange,no matter what I try(iso loader,lunizappz iso,gigahertz)with full boot on Ar Tonelico 2,the codes are always loaded.
I always get a crc and the codes are always loaded
How do you load the game(image(by using the iso loader or plugin),mounted image or from the disk)

I think he is talking about the special game fixes but that has nothing to do with your problem.
#6
OK I found a trick to get what I wanted.
What I was interested in with the hack was the PAL to NTSC code, which makes the game far smoother.
Then I simply used "ps2 PAL to NTSC patcher v1.06" to patch the iso to NTSC instead of using the hack, and now with full mode everything work perfectly!!! Laugh

I used the default plugin to load the ISO file.
I tried some other ISO files (all PAL), and they all do the same.
I also tried another version of pcsx2 (last SVN), and other plugins, but it always does the same too...
