I have a copy of the game, but it's horribly scratched. I tried to make a copy to play on my Playstation, but it doesn't run when trying to do the disc stone thing. I tried it on ePSXe but it does the same thing. I tried the disc change thing, but that doesn't work either. Should I try an ISO and CD combo, or is there something I don't know that's stopping me?

Best thing I can think of doing is doing some kind of disc restoration procedure (like the toothpaste trick or the Game Doctor thingy) then making an ISO in Alcohol 120% at low speed. If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to buy a new disc. How are you doing the disc change part in ePSXe?

Create an ISO image using a DVD rom drive, my FF8s are so messed up they won't play most of the time, but my DVD drive copied them without any issues and I could play from the CD as well. My brother ownes Digimon world, it won't play on a real PS2 , but the emulator plays it as well, however I haven't tried ISOing that game.

I don't have a DVD drive to do that with yet. I actually got it to work after a few tries. n_w, what's this toothpaste trick you mentioned? I've never heard about it before. Maybe I can get The Game of Life to work. My dog was chewing on it and it just doesn't work now.

heh, its not the toothpaste "trick". basically, you gotta get plain toothpaste (i hear the generic stuff is good...you dont want whitening or any of that. just plain toothpaste). toothpaste cleans your teeth with detergent or whatever it is, but the main point is that it's abrasive. put some on a cloth and rub it in a circular motion (pretty sure it's circular...) around the CD. that polishes it...hopefully you can buff out some scratches.

yea, generic works best, and yea, it's circular. usually I go counter-clockwise

(see I can be helpful at times) lol

I tried it myself a little while ago and I couldn't get it to work very well. I know that it does work though, my brother used the procedure on a bunch of my dad's CDs and it fixed them right up.
