...and I was doing so well! Got it nicely downsized and patched but there appears to be a conflict that's causing the game to freeze after the autoload screen. From my previous efforts, I noted that there was at least half of the opening movie on the layer-0 vol file. The complete movie resides on the layer-1 vol (Movie36.pss if you've tried extracting it) but unfortunately I can't find a trace of it with the hex editor on layer-0 (There's usually a headnote for TMPGEnc which sony uses for encoding), so it's more than likely to be encrypted. Interestingly though, RipPSS found a file that was the same length as Movie36 but when I loaded it, it was a dud. So to sum up, I'm assuming that the two movies must be compared before loading. Not totally sure on that or whether that indeed is the cause, but I think I'm going nowhere now, and plus, I'm totally out of media until next week.
