Okay, I've used three different types of media (fujifilm +r, memorex -r, and another type of +r) and all have the same result, the game starts up slowly and freezes every two or three seconds. I used dvd decrypter at 1x and 2x and an NEC burner. Loaded with swapdisc fix on a v.4 ps2 with flip top. What do you guys think. thanks.
