Ok, let's get it straight: 1. Someone gave me a DVDR with the game, that works in his modded PS2. 2. Tryied to play it in my PSTwo (Slim) with the SwapMagic 3.6 DVD. Result: Not a valid PS2 disk. 3. I did search in this forum for clues. Found SoR's patch, a ppf file to apply to the game's iso. So I copied the DVDR to my HD as an ISO file. Then used the program that patches iso files with the ppf files. Burned in Nero (Express). Result: Not a valid PS2 disk. 4. Replaced DUMMY.BIN with a text file. I made sure the extension is BIN, not TXT. Burned in Nero. Result: Not a valid PS2 disk. I'm running out of ideas. Anyone has more ideas? Or spotted something I'm doing wrong? Thanks for any advice, and sorry for posting another topic about this game.
