Four Games.
#1
There are four games that have the illustrious position of having a rating of "NOTHING".

I don't want to accuse anyone of anything but I suspect some of these games might have been tested after riding the high seas and may have gotten bad dumps. As three of the four are European games I'm wondering if someone wouldn't have more ready access to physical copies of these games than I do living the middle of the US. They are 

1. Ape Escape 2 - Chinese version - the American version says it's completely playable which makes it's position highly suspect to me.
2. Fightbox  - EU only game. made by the BBC
3. Sega Superstars Eyetoy  -EU VERISON - The American version has a slightly higher rating of intro probably because of the lack of eyetoy emulation.
4. World Rally Championship 4 - EU VERSION

well I can only speak to World Rally Championship 4 EU since I own it and it always freezes after the opening menu/intro (TLB miss).  it does work on pcsx2 versions from about 10 years ago but thats worthless since the game needs the xgkick hack and that doesnt exist in those builds so it has SPS everywhere. I have been hoping for kozarovv or prafull to find a fix for this game before pcsx2 1.6, but it hasnt happened yet :/  https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2/issues/1782

after testing the patch can you do a write test report .

and please note that you ran off a physical copy.
 
this seems to suggest that the game isn't a nothing.. it's at least an "Intro" if not a "Menu"

kozarovv, yes i just tried it again and it does not work. and yes, using the correct CRC CDE7C999. tried both fast boot and full boot and of course that didnt make a difference. i might of also misspoke earlier as now it is an instant black screen. i thought  i remembered getting a quick intro screen a while back but now it certainly is 'nothing' with the usual TLB misses in the log.
