    As the topic title states, I'm having mid game freezing issues with 8. I'm on 5.50 Pro 4-How can I resolve this?

    Thank you.

    Usin' Pops? if not try it. check the compatibilty list to see which FW's Pops you need to use. OR you could update to 6.20 PRO-B7 works PERFECTLY for me.

    I was actually planning on doing that tonight-but I'm actually petrified since it requires me to go OFW before I switch over and knowing my luck I'd fuck everything up.

    It's actually really easy. I used the top spoiler from here, and literally just finished downgrading to 5.00 OFW. All went perfectly. Hellcat's Recovery Flasher is a fantastic tool.

    Oh yeah, I was also on 5.50 Prome-4, for reference.

    It's the game, download another ISO/CSO and the problem will be fixed. I had God Eater:Burst and had a mission freeze problem but once I downloaded a patched ISO the game worked fine, I had to convert the .SAV file though but it was easy, if you need a tutorial on converting your .SAV file just PM me.

    PSN-PS1 games don't need pops...

    you are right but if my memory serves me right the lag was a psn version issue with CFW psp's get a non PSN version and the problem will go away with the right pops
