Crash after Gyan joins, Perfect Sync does nothing

Crash after Gyan joins, Perfect Sync does nothing

Postby destroyermaker » Sun Apr 24 2016 4:00am

I'm playing through the game on Kega Fusion and every time, the game crashes when attempting to go to the next section (Battle 12, after Gyan joins). If I attempt to go to camp or the shop, artifacts appear on screen and the game resets, or I get this message: http://i.imgur.com/SPhCjuq.jpg. I searched around and heard using the Perfect Sync option will do the trick, but it didn't change anything for me. I also fiddled with every conceivable option, and still nothing. Anyone have a solution?

Hmm, it looks as if it's not liking your Sega CD Bios. Have you made sure you have all three (Eur, USA, and Japan) set up in Kega's options? May want to consider getting some new BIOS files and replacing the ones you have.

Could also try and see whether Gens+ can open the BRM save file and whether you can continue that way :)

Good idea on the different BIOS' but unfortunately that doesn't work either.

Tried Gens+ before and that didn't work.

Oh well I have to give up I suppose.

If you're playing from an ISO file, possibly look at changing the region code on it? Can't remember whether you can do that for Sega CD games or whether it's just a Saturn thing.

If you want, you can attach your save file to a post here and see whether the same thing happens for someone else? Possibly we can save it after the issue and send you the file back :)

Apparently you can but it seems complicated. I tried to do it with SCDConv and ConvSCD and it wouldn't work. I don't really feel like investigating further.

Sure. Here is my quicksave.

Holy crap. Yes. That is completely f*cked.

When did you last do a hard save rather than use a quicksave? As in saving to the actual BRM film and not a gs0 file.

Let me see if I can get anywhere with the BRM file. The Savestate is completely messed up lol. Would need someone who knew how to Hex Edit to help with that methinks.

Alright, completed the battle and got to the next one that you've been having difficulty getting to.

Find the savestate and BRM files in the ZIP attached to this post :)

Do a backup of your old ones just in case :)
