I've been trying to get ps2 pal games running on USBLD Loader with no luck. I've tried both methods, with VMC & without. Get to the point where I can load and start game but I get a garbled screen like the one you see when you try to run a pal game on an NTSC sytem. The game is running because I can hear audio, but garbled video.

My setup:

NTSC-U launch 80gb PS3

swap magic 3.6+

Use both USBExtreme and UsbUtil to convert ISOs = same results

Use both USBLD 0.1 and USBLD 0.2b (whichever works on one is the same results for the other.

I'm starting to think you have to have an ISO to your specific region or something... I tried PAL Killzone and it just went to like a black and grey screen (like static on old tv sets) and that was in both the 0.1 loader and 0.2b. Couldn't get PAL ICO iso to run at all no matter how long I waited, just black screen and my thumb drive AND my ext hard drive flashed for a bit like it was reading info and then just stopped. HOWEVER, got gradius 5, final fight streetwise, marvel vs capcom 2, Shining force Neo, Kingdom Hearts (VERY SLOW VIDEOS like all other videos) NTSC-U all working.

Also... tried the PAL uncut ver of manhunt 2, starts the rockstar intro video and then to a black screen and just hangs anybody else have better luck???

My setup:

NTSC-U launch 80gb PS3

swap magic 3.6+

Use both USBExtreme and UsbUtil to convert ISOs = same results

Use both USBLD 0.1 and USBLD 0.2b (whichever works on one is the same results on the other, for me anyway)

My theory is that it doesn't matter by what means you take to finally get to the usbld.elf loaded but by what version and what they've tweaked in it that matters. So I'm guessing for better iso compatibility the coding is going to have to go into the USBLD builds. Now if only there were someone that spoke english working on it so I could confirm this

Killzone NTSC-U also not working on my system

*UPDATE* Got Metal Slug 3d (jap) iso working but oddly enough it only worked on usbld 0.1 and not 0.2b

I think my theory that how the usbld is coded is the key to the compatibility of which isos will and will not run is correct

What WD-disk did you try with? And how did you manage getting the others working? By flash? I'm about to try this method when i get my SM. Anyone been successful with a Western Digital My Book Essential Edition, the first ugly revision?

Yeah man, that's the one I got, mine has 250 gb. As mention before USBLD Loader ver 0.1 and 0.2 recognizes the hard drive, but I didn't have any luck with 0.2b. It also worked all the way from Swap Magic v 3.6 plus NTSC to .elf.

On another note, as I read that several people managed to boot ICO pal, I wanted to try it, and I did and it worked on 0.1 for me. But it takes alot more time to boot then the other games I managed to boot, so for that game you gotta have some patience.

I've played around with the loader a lot, shifting from 0.1 to 0.2, but I didn't have a lot of luck running games, and 0.2b didn't recognize my external USB Western Digital. I have a 20 gb PS3 US launch console.

Here's my compatibly list:

Ratchet & Clank NTSC - Working
Kingdom Hearts PAL - Boots but I get black screen after I've clicked on new game, when it's suppose to show the intro FMV.

Odin Sphere NTSC - Not working
Tony Hawk's Skater Underground 2 PAL - Not working
Yakuza 2 NTSC - Not working
Metal Slug 3 - Not Working
Kingdom Hearts: Chain of memories NTSC - Not working
