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.

Thankyou to all for the information!
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.
Yes, that's the magazine. What do you mean with "try patching that"? Do you mean to skip them? I told I actually can use the menu (demos, videos and credits sections, you know, what I cannot do is to play the demos I have chosen from the menu, and neither the videos).
Thankyou again!
Hey, there's something more. I had the idea that downloadable demos like from where surely executable, but screen goes black and nothing happens. :eyespin:
Can somebody tell me if that kind of demos are more compatible?
Another little question. Does somebody have bought a 7000 series geforce card? I would like to know if there is some important difference in ps2 emulation between the new card and the old one.
Well, the graphics card question was only a curious one.
Talking about another subject, the last day I was able to run colosseum demo. When I saw the colosseum I almost cry :lol: . But that was the only demo that I could run because with the others the screen goes black, no matter the configuration I have.
