Default Wild Arms 2 problem

I'm running Wild Arms 2 on psxfin. The emulator can and does run other images (bin/cue & ccd/sub/img) fine as well as reading discs.

When I try and run the Wild Arms 2 iso I have from here it gets past the Media Vision screen and then has a black screen with some illegable text that's in a black filled font with partial white boardering. Behind that is a red struck through circle like you see on a no smoking sign.

I had this same problem on a Wild Arms 2 iso I got at emuparadise as well. An ideas as to what's going on?

Thanks

Sounds like the CD has some sort of protection on it. You may have to find a patch. Out of curiosity though, did you try in on another emulator, like epsxe?

No I hadn't. Would that really help the matter though?

If it is protected how would I get around that?

It would if there's a problem with psxfin's emulation that doesn't exist in another emulator.

As for how to get around protection, if that's the case... If you're lucky, someone else has already figured out a way around the protection and created a patch for it. If you're not lucky, you'll have to figure out how to hack the game yourself, which pretty much requires knowledge of the PSX's processor and associated assembly language.

If I were to use the actual disc instead of an iso would that avoid the problem? I'd prefer not to have to go through the hassle of setting up another emulator just for one game.

Translation: I'm screwed :P I barely understand Java let alone the inner workings of a PS.

if you have the disk... try using it first, and if that doesn't work, make a RAW 1:1 copy as a ISO and try using that. If both those fail... some googling around stated that using a PAL BIOS might fix the issue (you're on your own finding one). Finally, if none of those work, there's a patch available, but I can't give it to you due to the forum rules forbidding it (it's a crack circumventing copy protection). Try finding it on your own, it shouldn't be hard.
