    Sometimes you have to use the Euro version instead of the USA version. Besides the extra languages, there is barely any difference in most cases, anyway.

    Hello.:)

    After successful converted these Adventures (EDIT:"Aztec - Der Fluch der Azteken SLES-03052" works now).
    NOTE:


    I have noticed one thing:

    NONE of them are running on higher POPSloader Version then 5.51.

    On 6.00 and higher I get Black Screen(s) and no change to get back (the HOME Button has no longer a function at this point).I only can hold the POWER Button and turn the PSP off.

    -
    maybe because these are GERMAN only versions ?
    - maybe of the CFW ? 6.61 PRO C2 permant.
    - maybe of the "custom" Add ons ? I put in every game an ICON/BACKGROUND/INFORMATION Picture.The games work without any issues.I do not get errors on converting with PSX2PSP v1.4.2.

    And I do not think it is game relevant because screen size adjustment and disc change works.
    Only on very low versions of POPSloader I got issues.

    Thank you for reading.:)

    I am trying this I have the original CD back from 2002 christmas. When I try to play the European version after the language selection screen the game goes black.
    I can access the PSP pops menu leave the game and reset it but I can't start a new game. I used img burn to create the CD image.

    Actually there is a significant difference. Almost all PAL games of that generation are only 50Hz which means they run around 17% slower than the US version. A lot also have large borders at the top and bottom due to the resolution difference between pal and ntsc.

    Yeah but in the PSP is barely noticeable. And the fact the PAL games are slower helps the PSP to run them better.

    Some games strain the Playstation hardware hence why you have to use the PAL version for the PSP.

    For example, using Digimon World 2003 instead of Digimon World 3.

    And some games just can't run on the PSP like Discworld Noir.
    That's your problem, just download the iso from somewhere online and it should work since the original game has copy protection.

    Also don't use the USA version on the PSP since the PSP hardware can't handle it.
