I got the same problem... It took my a long time to get this game running and when I finally did, it freezes when you get into the elevator in your new home and the screen turns black and the PSP eventually just turns off. I hope there is another patch or something that can be done. let me know if you get the RUNUMD method working. It says its compatible with direct load for umdemu .8c in the list but it only freezed for me when i try to launch it. Thanks to anyone who can offer any help!
