Hello everyone.

Sorry for asking probably too banal things but I spent 2 hours already surfing here and didn't get an explanation HOW TO PATCH THE GAME :)

I have DreamPi and it works great with all the other games but I am giving up with PSO.... I have the NTSC-U PSO v.2. I downloaded the .cdi Loader and I DO NOT UNDERSTAND what to do next... I burned it on a CD and inserted in the dreamcast but nothing happens. It recognises like an Audio CD with 1 track.
I read few topics and everywhere written that this thing have to patch the save file on a memory card somehow but I have no idea how.

Please, can somebody guide me because I really feel so bad already about this situation. I feel that solution is a "peace of cake" but I cannot understand how to patch the game.

Thanks in advance!

How did you burn it? You need DiscJuggler or ImgBurn for CDI files usually. You can try burning my data/data version of BlueCrab's boot disc if the one on SourceForge didn't work: http://psopalace.sylverant.net/download ... er_2-0.zip

I am burning it in right way with ImgBurn. I have "early Japanese Dreamcast" without region lock, so I burned plenty of CDI's which works perfect, except this "Patch".

I will try now to burn your files.

Thanks

Nope, it does not work either... Just doesn't boot. Asks to insert a game disk. I really do not understand what am I doing wrong. I can chip any retro console with closed eyes, but I cannot patch this game :)
