    I just finished playing GoW for psp so I thought I'll get 1&2 for Ps2 but im reading there were a lot of problems coz its dual layered. At the mo I got Gow1 DVD9 so what settings shall I use with imgburn or any other app? I dont know what chip I have on my ps2 someone please help. I read about toxic patch for gow2 is it neccessary for gow 1?

    Founds this from somewhere. I never modded my ps2 so i don't know about burning ps2 games etc. But i assume that you need that dual layer patch and something. :a If it's not patched already.

    You just have to patch the image with the toxic dual layer patcher and burn , unless you have a newer chip that has auto DL patching , then you can just burn and switch the patching on in your chips config. Also make sure you set booktype to dvd-rom as well.

    If it doesn't work , then it's one of three things

    1)Crap media
    2)Your chip doesn't support dual layer.
    3)Laser is worn and too weak to read it.

    well i applied the toxic patch and after a few dres it worked. but during a big cutscene to athena it stuttered BIG time. I think i'll buy gow 2

    i couldnt set the booktype coz my freecom external usb writer was not listed in imgburn (oem?)

    I was never able to get dual layer PS2 games to work. So I just grabbed the DVD5 versions.

    If it's booted , then the booktype was probably set , I don't think they will boot at all if it isn't. Writer may of done it automatically as a lot do for +r dl. Stuttering is no good [​IMG] , either the ps2 didn't like the media (what did you use?) or laser is dirty or worn and just can't handle a burnt dl disc [​IMG].

    hah, you wait when you get to the bridge in god of war where the desert is and the game will freeze and won't progress any further, that why i end up buying the game, wasted a whole dual layer pack using various settings and never got it to work.
