PCSX2 Black Screen (Newcomer Issues)
Hey everyone, I'm a total newcomer to all this, just downloaded the latest version of the software yesterday and I'm trying to play Dragon Quest V. I followed the guide as best I could, and have tried to play the game from both disc and an ISO I made with ImgBurn, but neither method seems to work. I just end up getting a black screen with no music when I reboot CDVD (either full or fast). Here's my log info which I think has all the details requested.

I tried to make and run a copy of SOTC to see if it's just cuz DQV is a Japanese disc, but that didn't work either. I didn't change any of the defaults and I checked to make sure I had the latest version of DirectX.

Any help would be appreciated, I have no idea what I'm doing!

Not sure if it means those kind of problems, but as far as I know japanese original release bios isn't supported in pcsx2, potentially that's your problem, couse everything else looks fine. If you have any other ps2, rip and try a different bios. PCSX2 is region free meaning you don't really need bios matching game version.
