Hi, I'm a newbie. I have some questions about patches.
First, where can I find some guide to make patches, but not only to pass videos?
If I understood well, pcsx2 is improving constantly, so, does this means that in a future patches would be unnecessary?
And the last question. I have ps2 demos from ps2 magazines. Why can't I run some game, even using patches to skip videos. The only I can do is to run the Cd and see the menu where you choose the game you want to play, but when I choose one, the screen goes black, don't matter the game it is. I cannot reach even the game menus.
In that cd there are also video demos, I thought PCSX2 could run some videos, but its impossible to see something again.
I was wondering if it affects the fact of being many ps2 exes in the CD, that is, if the program has to redirect to another exe (surely this is a sillyness, but remember, I'm a newbie :emb: ).
Well, I hope not to seem idiot and you could answer my questions.

Yes you are right. The demos doesn't work cos there are a lot of games into a one CD, and the emu doesn't redirect correcty to other EXE's (they are called .elf)......
Thats not totally true, TWave. I have had better chances telling a demo disc Run CD then Open Elf numerous times. Though if you want to try other games on the demo disc use the Open Elf way, but I recomend the Run CD. Sorry if this is hard to follow.

from ps2 magazines
Is the PS2 Magazine the "Official PlayStation 2 Magazine?" If it is there are usually movies at the beginning in *.pss format so you might want to try patching for that.

Hope this helps! And Welcome to the forum!!

yes a lot of demos on them dvd's dont work, i have about 20 of them, and about 2% of the games will run :p
Weird, all the demo's I have work, by just executing Run CD. Well hopefully you can get the demos to work, Eloyc.
