    Having a slight problem...I've recently burned MESH's release of Red Ninja: End of Honor for the Playstation 2, and when I go to play it, the screen is black and white and it keeps flipping reallyi strangely, like the tracking is off on a VCR. I'm using Swap Magic 3.3 and a Slide Card, and I've tried using both DVD Decrypter and Nero to burn the disk, but so far they've both had the same result. Could someone help me out?

    Most likely a PAL release.

    Since you have Swap magic have you tried bootin in PAL mode.(or vice-versa)

    When it starts up (swap magic).
    It says Normal mode or Ntsc mode.
    You can switch that to PAL mode.

    You may or may not have to do "special boot" (press square instead of x)

    I tried the PAL boot with just pressing x, and then I tried the PAL boot while pressing square, and then I just tried the normal mode while pressing square, but after I do so (at least with the PAL), I just get a black screen and nothing loads. Any other suggestions?

    i also tried to back up my copy of red ninja: end of honor.

    i can get up to the new game selection, but then the game freezes at the now loading screen, the orginal plays fine.

    is there any software that can verify a 1:1 copy of a disc?

    ill try backing it up again.

    it works like a champ now for some reason. i saved a game using the origninal, then i pop in the backup, and load up my saved game, and the game plays, doesn't get stuck anymore, . who knows, my v12 is picky sometimes i guess..
