Ah, my mistake for not clarifying. I'm trying to emulate the first Spyro game, and just to be sure, I tried installing the US NTSC rom. This time, the music did play at the title screen, but as for the game itself, safe for the music, it completely froze when trying to access the memory cards. As for my flash image, it's likely not corrupted as I have upgraded to the latest firmware, but I'm not sure how I would find out if it would be corrupted to begin with. I placed the rom in "/media/data/local/home"
What I meant by 'corrupted image' was your CD image of Spyro might be corrupted or flawed. It's not unusual because CD images are so huge and uploading to the GCW's internal storage is pretty slow and can time-out very easily. Are you sure you have free space on your device and haven't used it all up copying PS1 CD images to it?First
, if you don't have any saved games you care about, you can try renaming/deleting your memory card files in /media/data/local/home/.pcsx4all/memcards/ folder and fresh ones will be created when you next run the emulator. You will lose your saved games if they're deleted, of course
. If that doesn't work, you can delete the fresh ones and rename the originals back to their original names. Then, I'd try the following:
1.) Verify you have a working ROM named as /media/data/local/home/.pcsx4all/bios/scph1001.bin and have it chosen instead of HLE in the emu settings.
2.) Verify different games than Spyro work before fighting with just one game. You haven't told us if you've gotten any other games to work.
2.) Try copying the Spyro image from your computer to a microSD card and see if that works on your GCW. it will be in /media/sdcard/WHEREVER If it works, that means the game CD image in your home directory got corrupted or wasn't fully copied over.
3.) If that doesn't work, try a different Spyro game image. You can use a PSP Eboot .pbp if you like, or a regular .bin/.cue image, preferrably NTSC US.
4.) Remove the file /media/data/local/home/.pcsx4all/pcsx4all.cfg to reset your settings to defaults. Change BIOS setting back to scph1001.bin afterwards , of course, as Spyro won't work with HLE emulated bios.
