UNSOLVED ISSUE!

Post#1 » Thu Sep 10, 2020 8:13 pm

Anyone know what would cause freezing on telepiping loading screen and audio cutouts on the caves level for PSOv2 on DC? I’m using GDEmu with Pico PSU, Noctua Fan etc and this has just hit me spontaneously after 27 hours (not non-stop) of smooth gameplay. Even pressing X+Y+A+B and Start won’t take me back to menu. Advice?

UPDATE! Still no change at all in my freezing situation. I tried several different ripped files including TOSEC GDI and I even used a few different SD cards. Got to the exact same point in the game, telepiped and same occurance. I am now starting to think, since this happened all of sudden after such a long run of smooth gameplay, that this is a bug that has been saved in my game to the VMU or it’s a problem with the Dreamcast itself (possibly motherboard faulty or pins need cleaning). More advice or any experts please anyone??? I’ve given all the symptoms I can think of, any solutions???

Honestly I have no idea. I've never heard of such a thing happening. Where did buy your GDemu from? Have you tried running the game using the GD-ROM and see if it still happens?

My GDEmu is 100% original and updated to latest firmware, and as I said if tried a few different rips on a few different SD cards. Same problem.

UPDATE! I have the latest firmware, so I am left thinking this is a mother/logic board problem.

a good test to see sd card compatibility is to to do the crazy taxi stress test. let the intro video loops for 3 hours if it doent freeze all is ok
