(GC) Freeze while patching

Post by Tayumpee » Mon May 25, 2020 6:51 pm

I am on Gamecube playing PSO E1&2 (not plus) on all original hardware and while applying the movement runtime patch, my game froze. I've left it running because last time something similar happened, I shut off the Gamecube and the character save corrupted. Does anybody have a recommendation of what I should to to make sure my save does not corrupt?

When your memory card gets old, it can take longer to save. Wait a few seconds before applying any patches. Sega coded patching incorrectly in non Plus, so you sometimes crash when applying patches. You can use the Combination 1 and 2 patches to reduce the crashing risk compared to applying patches one by one. You only lose Meseta when you crash on the patch menu, so if you bank it, you won't lose anything.
