Fixing unplayable games
Hopefully this thread is still active

Trying to play Major League Baseball 2k10/11/12 on PCSX2 1.6

Its about the only game ive tried lately that does not run past the loading screens. It does the normal PS2 load up, a loading screen then seems to freeze.

Patch for Gladiator-Sword of Vengeance [SLUS 20793](U)
Fixes hang before reaching menus. This is basically skipping a part of the IPU so it causes occasional artifacts in FMV but makes the game playable.

Patch for Musashi Samurai Legend [SLUS 20983] (U)
Fixes majority of overbrightness issues. Little translucent fog remains in some areas (I can fix that but that creates other problems). Automatic gamefixes need to be tested.

prafull you are amazing - I'm re-setting up all my games using a newer version of Spectabis and I came here to make sure I had everything current for Primal - and I thought, I'm going to ask you to look at Musashi Samurai Legend. Then I come to the end of the thread and here it is! It works amazing, you are a wizard!!! I'll have to make a video to show people - I was looking for a fix just a day or two ago and then, here it is!!

If you take any requests for games to look at, right now 2 that I still have that aren't quite there yet are Cy Girls and Malice. Cy Girls has a problem with walls and floors disappearing in hardware mode, and Malice has a lot of weird issues with bloom and fog textures, etc. I have to have a lot of hacks and settings tuned to get a playable game. Software mode works better but it even has issues. It seems like the European Version of the game works better for me than the US version. If you don't want to work on these that's okay, I'm very appreciative of what you've done already! Thanks again!!

Hack attack! Smile Important note about emulators posted below. DO NOT report any issues using them, and DO NOT use them for any other game that description suggest.

Stolen - Fix game speed. Internally there still seems to be some minor lag. HW mode broken, use SW mode only.

Echo Night - Beyond

in certain areas using the flashlight drastically decreases the framerate and so slows down the whole game in hardware mode that the game become unplayable
Workaround: Software mode will fix the Slowdowns, But the Broken Shadows will Still remain
For NTSC (CRC - 2DE16D21) version use this code:

//Performance Fix + Remove Flashlight Shadows
patch=1,EE,00144034,word,3c020000 //3c023f80

Note: Disable Depth Emulation Wont fix this issue
