    Ok so i started to play Tales of symphonia using dios mios lite 2.11, and now im about 5-6 hours into game, so far its been working perfectly.......... Until i got to the first cutscene with Magnius in Palmacosta, it plays fine until his henchmen casts the fireball, then the screen turns black, while the music is still playing, nothing else happens, it just stays at the black screen! >_>

    Heres a video i recorded to show where this happens, every other part of the game worked fine except here, and now I can't get pass this a-hole and continue the game because of this >_>(as If I needed another reason to hate Magnius)

    Have you tried checking the iso's md5 with redump's? Otherwise you could import your save and try it on either Dolphin or Nintendont to see if the problem is DM(L) only but checking if it's a clean iso is the easier option.

    I came here to say, I had to find a pretty round-about method to solve this. Basically, I had to export my ToS save and load it into Dolphin on my PC and play the game past the scene. Afterwards, you can save and export the save back into DM and it will work fine. Of course, this only works if you have a computer that can emulate ToS.

    A word of caution, a similar glitch happens when you first get to Ozette later on. When Rodyle tries to talk, his speech bubble freezes the game, and you have to do the same method of exporting to Dolphin once more.

    good tips

    but is not much point (esp to the dev) if you can't confirm your ISO is a know good dump.

    I know this is an old topic, but I was wondering if a method to fix this problem has come to light?

    If your ISO MD5 hash matches the one on redump.org then it's DIOS MIOS that's the problem and it isn't supported anymore. Try another Gamecube loader like Nintendont.

    The tool in my sig can validate your disc image automatically.
