    I have used nero 6 to create successfull copies of final fantasy tactics, breath of fire 4 and vagrant story that work on my ps2 using breaker pro to boot them. However i tried doin the same with legend of mana and it wont boot up
    on my ps2 with breaker pro, but the emulator epsexe will boot it no probs
    on my pc. I cnt see any reason why it will not work!!

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Cheers!!

    Legend of Mana is one of the few mod protected games for the PSX. You need to patch the .iso version of the CDimage in order to boot it on your PS2 with Breaker Pro. You need to get an .iso verion of the game or the patch won't work. You can obtain the patch here: http://www.megagames.com/psx/psx_xps.shtml#Introduction I personally have not got the patch to work as I have a .img version of the game, so make sure to post if you are able to get the patch to work, Good Luck. Correction only the NTSC Jap. version is mod protected. The U.S. NTSC version of LOM is not mod protected, so no patch is required for the U.S. release. Perhaps you got a slightly defective .iso image. I have the same problem with Legend of Mana, and will post as soon as I know how to burn it correctly or come across an image file that works properly.

    Damn it man this is an annoying one. I found another image file and still have the same prob. I don't know if I got the Japanese NTSC version which is mod protected or what. When I start a new game the text is in English, so I doubt it. The US NTSC version is not mod protected, yet that is the only logical explanation. I am pretty sure that it is some form of Libcrypt (Sony's lame mod detection code-easily bypassed with a patch) because the game boot's on ePsxe and PSXeven fine. There are like 4 different patches and none of them seem to work. I am tired of wasting GD CD's on this game. I WILL find a solution and post it as soon as I do Mikeoes.

    Yer i tried patching my version which was a .img file which is the u.s. ntsc 1, but i got no joy with it, the patch loaded up but then when you tried booting the game from the patch i just got a blank screen (im not sure if i patched it correctly tho) it was the paradox patch i used. But it seems strange that it works on the emulators and not on the console, especially if this version is not mod-protected!! Some one has dun it tho coz i found a thread and they had a list of succesfull psx games they had backed up,and it was in there list i messeged them but they sed it was years ago wen they did it and they cnt rememba how they did it!

    To be honest Mikeoes I have put Legend of Mana on the back burner for now. I burned it patched, unpatched, tried PAL, NTSC,and off video modes. I burned it with Nero, Alcochol, and CDRWIN, at 4x with the correct settings, all to no avail. It just says booting CD... and sits there on my PS2. Each time PSXeven and Epsxe boot the CD fine and it's not listed on any list of mod protected games. The Jap-NTSC version is mod protected, but the U.S. version is not. I came across a post with the same problem (I forget where) and the solution listed there was to boot LOM on a PSone as that seemed to work fine. In that post the person could not boot LOM on a PS2 either. This pisses me off because I have booted mod protected games, PAL games, and NTSC games all with no problems. Of the 30 or so backups I have, LOM is the ONLY one which will not boot. If anybody has booted LOM succesfully on a PS2 with Breaker Pro I would appreciate it if you informed me how. Thank you.

    My theory on this is as follows. All the bt files for Legend of Mana are in .img format or in other words made with clone cd. I burned LOM using Nero, Alcohol %120, and CDRWIN. Each time when I tried booting LOM it would boot on my PSX emulators, but not with Breaker Pro on my PS2. I thought about trying to find a different image file, but all the torrents are for the same .img Clone CD rip. No dice there, but I never thought about burning it with Clone CD. I deleted the image before I came up with that idea, so unfortunately I'd have to d/l it again. I will d/l it again sometime soon and try burning it with Clone CD, and post the results. Mike if you have the same .img file I had, try burning it with Clone CD and see if it boots. It's a long shot but that's the best I can do right now, Later.

    Yeah I burned it with Clone CD and it didn't work. I tried Memorex CD-R's and Sony CD-R's with no luck. I burned at 4x, 16x, all with no results. Some people say Memorex CD-R's are crapola (their DVD-R's are) but they've always worked for me. The only answer left is the Clone CD rip is faulty. That was my original theory anyway. I couldn't find a another torrent for LOM other than the Clone CD rip. So in short we're SOL until somebody uploads a working image of LOM.

    Well there is one way to get it work, with a modchip. I just got a Matrix Infinity 1.54 installed in my PS2 and LOM plays perfectly. This means it's incompatiblile with Breaker Pro. Oh well, Breaker Pro is still a great product. This is the ONLY game I couldn't get to boot with it.

    It's easy to find. Try any bittorrent site. You would have to use a PSX emulator.

    62. Q. Screw the PS2, I wanna play PSX games on my PC, where can I find emulators for that?
    A. http://ngemu.com/psx/index.php These are a lot more doable IF: You find the PSX bios. For copyright purposes think Google. Then you have to have a reasonably powerful PC, let's say with around 512MB's of RAM. Then you have to configure the audio, video, and CD-ROM plug ins. These will differ greatly from game to game. Mix, match, and google are your friends once again. The two most stable PSX emulators seem to be PSXeven or ePSXe. Most games run fine depending on how much you have running in the background and your plug in configuration.

    8. Q. What should I use to download PS2 games?
    A. Bit torrent, P2P, IRC, or newsgroups. Bit torrent is the easiest and most common way. You need a BT client like Bit Tornado, Azureus, Bitlord, Bitcomet, Shareza, etc.

    9. Q. Where can I find PS2 games to download?
    A. http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/249297

    Thanks for the info, however i am still a bit unsure about a few things so i u could help with any of these I would be really greatfull!!!

    Ok I have epsxe and all the necassary plugins, and i used utorrent to download a of LOM called Legend of Mana (u)[PSX](CloneCD).rar, the download was 100% complete however the file didnt change from that icon that windows uses when it doesnt recognize a file type. I know this might seem like a dumb question, but this is the first time ive downloaded a psx game, so should the file icon change? and do i need to burn the file to disc or can i open it from its location?

    So any help u can give me will really be a great help?

    why can't you just extract the files in the .img file onto your computer, then make it into an .iso, and then patch that?

    Because he downloaded a LOM rar file. You need to Winrar to extract rar files. You can do that if you have an original copy or a backup copy of the game. Patching it wouldn't help. The NTSC-US version isn't modprotected, only the NTSC-J version is.

    beg your pardon, i'd hate to reign in on your parade, but i think i said, why can't you extract the files from the img onto your computer, then use magic iso, to put it back together as an iso, then use the patch system. as far as downloading the game, i am pretty sure you would not find many places to get it in anything but a rar or zip file. now, my main question is where is your source of information on ntsc-us benig non mod chip copyrighted, and thhe jap version being copyrighted?

    No I know the NTSC-US version is not mod protected. I'm not in the habit of passing along BS info. If you want to see for yourself: http://www.go.to/psxcplist http://www.megagames.com/psx/psx_protected_games.shtml
    FYI I've burned mod protected PSX games, patched PAL PSX games to NTSC, made 1 to 1 copies of PSX originals, burned NTSC-Jap games, burned PSX successful backups with Alcohol 120%, Nero, both CDR-WIN's, and Clone CD. I have a pretty good idea what I'm doing when it comes to PSX games. I've also used Breaker Pro with a flip top and a slide card, and now I have a modchip. Not to be arrogant, but you'd be hard pressed to find someone in these forums that knows more about burning PSX games than I do.

    luckily for you, i can not see your face, as you might be hard pressed to hide it away... i too have used a playstation for many years bub. as well as the invention which can be used almost as easily as a vcr called a cd burner. i even found a way to make duplicates of my mothers best foods, isn't that something.
