Fixing unplayable games
Ruff Trigger seems to be having same problems as Iridium runners (both are from same developer Playstos Entertainment). Anyway I made a quick patch which seems to take the game ingame (need to enable ee timing hack). It still hangs after some time but may be I can fix that later with bit of work.

Patch for Ruff Trigger - Vancore Conspiracy [SLUS 21314] (U)

What's happening in Ruff Trigger?

I did an analysis on IR and it was interesting that the breakpoint stacks returned different results (when it hangs) when EE timing hack and the GIF FIFO hack were enabled in the menu (where it will hang as well) I'm going to look again and report here.

Here's what I got on the MTVU thread without manual gamefixes or with only the GIF FIFO hack enabled (in the menu) - Line 75 (it hangs in the else condition)

Code:
void VifUnpackSSE_Base::xMovDest() const {
if (IsUnmaskedOp()) { xMOVAPS (ptr[dstIndirect], destReg); }
else { doMaskWrite(destReg); }
}
---------------------------
With just EE timing hack (on the EE Core thread, nothing interesting in the MTVU thread) - (1st line after the bracket)

This is the same place it will hang in-game
(_hwRead32 <9,0> )
Code:
mem32_t __fastcall _hwRead32(u32 mem)
{
pxAssume( (mem & 0x03) == 0 );

Next address in the stack (again, first line after bracket):
(hwRead32<9> )
Code:
mem32_t __fastcall hwRead32(u32 mem)
{
mem32_t retval = _hwRead32<page,false>(mem);
eeHwTraceLog( mem, retval, true );
return retval;
}
---------------------------

It's Ok to make requests in this thread. 

Anyway, I had a look at Speed kings hanging problem some time ago but didn't manage to patch it. The game works in !play emulator though.

I remember looking to this as well. It goes in-game but no picture. I remember that Evolution Snowboarding will go black in the menus (I don't recall how to trigger that)

Sorry for bumping this old reply (I was going thorugh the compatibility list recently)

If Ice Age is 100% working with the patch, can you update the compatibility report for it? Thanks Smile

Edit: I was actually thinking of the 2nd game, that one's still broken I believe.

How are things going on the patch ? any updates of fixing the missing effect ?  Unsure
