Final Fantasy IX Problems

13 Replies 1,592 Views Created 25-08-2010
I'm having issues with running my Playstation copy of Final Fantasy IX. I've done my best to search for information but I've mostly just found bits relating to known problems with Final Fantasy VIII other than a few topics with people in various places mentioning they can't get IX working either. What happens: Disc loads to show Playstation logo then fades to black and freezes. My Setup: PS3 Slim System Software Version: 3.41 Final Fantasy IX: SLES-02965 (PAL) Things I've tried: All 4 discs Using SCART cable to minimise scaling issues. Loading with and without a generated Memory Card. I'm not interested in paying for the PSN version, just trying to work out why my version isn't working. If anyone has any information I would be most grateful. Is there any official word of IX as there seems to have been on VIII? Has anyone got IX working now? If so what PS3/System Version/IX CDs are you using? Any other fixes people know of? It's rather anoying that the emulator doesn't seem to throw out any errors. Anyone got any thoughts?

I'll forgive you for not reading my post as it looks like all the formatting was sucked out and I can't even seem to edit it now. I'll try to add a formatted post now, with some added bold just for you.

IX should work fine. Have you checked the discs for any scratches?

 

I did check the American backwards compatability site, since I couldn't find an EU one, and it said all issues with backwards compatability of FF IX were fixed way back in System Software V1.9

There is some slight scratching, but just normal wear and tear, just tested it again (on my PS2 this time) and it works fine. I guess this does mean I can play it still (if I can find a PS1 memory card), but I'm awkward and the fact it doesn't work on my PS3 makes me want to work out why ^_^

 

Edit:

Just found this: http://www.ps3comp.com/psone/Final-Fantasy-IX-SLES-02965.asp so it looks like some people have had it working in the past atleast. Very odd.

Hmm, odd, Sadly I have the download version so I can't check if it works.

 

I'll ask some of my friends if they have a disc version I can borrow from them and get back to you :)

Same here. Just checked now and all four discs of VIII and IX work with the exception of last disc of VIII. 

 

Very odd indeed seeing as I have the same disc code as the OP... The only thing I can think of is that your PS3 is a Slim, but that shouldn't affect the software emulation, should it?

That was my first thought, but I don't think it would. And if it is why then that's ridiculous.

Maybe it is that it's a slim :( I've just tried a System Restore (only a quick format though) and reinstalled the System Software to no effect. I've read in a few places about some kind of compatibility downloads for some games not sure where these would be found though. There's no settings people have had to tweak to get PS1 games working?

I've finally managed to dig out another PS1 game (I don't have many) Bloody Roar, and that's loaded without problems. So at least I know it's just FFIX causing the issue :(

Just to update the thread in case anyone stumbles across this in future: I've taken to trying the disc every time I get an update just in case and with the 3.5 update my patients was rewarded! FFIX now works <3 It's shiny on playing on my PSP via the PS3 beautifully.
