    Yes it is ture, I know that you shouldn't use any healing or attacking during boss battles. and if that fails turn off the psp drill a tiny hole through the psp....shit head.

    Oh cmon, Mesiskope. Take it easy.

    Anyway... so far, I've heard people say Scan and Draw cause their PSP to freeze but I hear it's playable. Though... being unable to scan or draw kinda makes things kinda hella harder for me. XD;;

    There is a PSN version of this game out, right?
    If so, download the PSN version.

    No problems.

    Problem is, the PSN version is the one that causes the freezes.

    You can find some patched versions of FFVIII on the web, but ironically I haven't found any that get past the 'New Game' option properly.

    There are versions converted from the psx isos that work quite a bit better. I had a set in single disc eboots where draw/scan worked just fine for me. I had the occasional random freeze but nothing that couldn't be dealt with by saving often. Search around and see what you can find.

    Guys, you seem to have alot of misinformation.
    - Yes, there is a PSN version
    - The PSN version works perfectly on 6.xx firmware. Since all CFW are 5.xx it will still have freezes
    - Reason for these freezes is that 5.xx modules are a bit buggy
    - I hear people recommending using a converted eboot instead of the PSN one so that you can keep choosing different versions of POPS with popsloader, but honestly I wasnt really bothered with that.
    - I'm playing the game now (5.00 M33-6, about 11 hours in), Draw has NO FREEZES. However casting some spells might freeze it (scan worked fine for me, but I only tried it one time, cure and its derivatives work fine, shell freezes .. 2 moves by all monsters I faces so far freezes it)


    So basically, if you have the patience for it. It's playable (at least it is playable up to this point)

    edit: damn, finally an unavoidable crash.. It crashes on Irvines introduction fmv [​IMG]

    If it's hackable, yes. Check the stickys.
    Way to bump a thread btw.
