what my problem is ffIX...i'm not able to find out what version do i have...i tryed it on a psx and it's in english...so if it's american (ntsc) i souldn't have problems, and if it's english (pal-uk) i should use the patch by huligans...but when i try to apply the patch it says that the bin isn't correct and when i use pete cdrom plugin, the display (the trainer) of the patch appear but when i press x to start in pal mode, it return to windows, and nothing happen...guest why?
I gave up, i got a strange ff9 version, now at the end i'm tryng to have lended to me a psx from a friend
look at the scph code.
it should be on the cd or in its contents or something.
i know if it says SLUS then its a us ntsc game. there are other codes for other countries but i dont know them off the top of my head..
i found that my game is a PAL ITALIAN version, since i'm italian and it goes well on the italian playstations (with the mod chips) and this kind of psx get the scph9002 pal bios, i suppose that if i can extract a bios from this psx i can play the game witouth patches, right?
Now how can i extract a bios, i shall have an e-eprom reader, what kind of e-eproms (where the bios is loaded) are in the psx?
Sorry m8 no luck whatsoever with that idea. The emu doesn't have lipcrypt 4 support. Hence games with this form of copy protection (eg ffix) won't run without a patch period. Unfortunately there isn't one for the italian version sorry. Either wait 'til someone makes one or buy the us disk.
in order to do so, epsxe would need to now how to instruct the cd drive to read from the "intentional" bad clusters at the beginning of the cd, which i dont believe that most cd drives are capable of.
