    I have the iso, and the patch, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to patch it. Googled it, but there are a lot of pages that come up, and I'm not sure which to go with. I have to go pick up the kids from school in about 20 mins., so I don't have a lot of time to screw around. Everyone here has always been very helpful, so can one of you folks hook a brother up with a link to a guide?

    Thanks in advance.

    I did the process and it worked.
    I played for about 2 hours with no crashes btw.
    Just remember to patch for M33. There is a small readme on the file you will download. You need as well UMDGEN.
    Well hopefully you can figure it out after this.

    I've done it a few times before, but damned if I can remember how. So thanks for the link, I'll be doing this as soon as I get back!!

    Please don't tell me you're still on that damned M33. It's a sunk ship, jump onto the GEN bandwagon already! I'll wager that GEN-D2 (or D3, whichever) will play that game without any decrypting whatsoever.

    I agree that m33 is outdated but if you have lots of homebrew (1.xx and 1.50) they won't work with GEN. There are advantages and disadvantages with both firmwares

    I didn't even know this was coming out so soon. I'm tempted to play it just to see what has changed, but on the other hand I am sick of seeing this game resurrect on every platform known to man. I'm pretty sure they released a version that runs on my toaster--it's like the Linux of video games and it won't die no matter how mediocre it is and always has been.

    I believe that GEN still has to decrypt, but it's an automated process when you launch a game.

    I believe it is on-the-fly decryption, yes, but the point remains the same. If the OP was using GEN, chances are they would not have to make a thread like this at all.

    Although, it seems it is not perfect with everything. Note - the new MLB game. Gen users seem to be having a bitch of a time with that one. If you have to wait for a working fix either way, I'll stick with my m33.

    Guys don't turn this into a Flamewar between M33 and GEN...
    Please will ya? It works. And we should be thankful it DOES. unlike a MLB as said apparently.

    There is a decrypter for M33 which you run from your PSP (don't remember the name but was in a thread in this forum) and the last version added support for the same version of the "on the fly" GEN decrypter. I used that in the past, but changed to GEN for the latest games when the decrypter wasn't updated (and a couple of days after update, the new version of the decrypter got released)

    I did get it to work, thanks much. Appreciate the pm offer.

    Now I need to find a patch for the new MLB games. Don't know how to make my own (dummy).

    I went to psphacks.com to find it but couldn't. Any chance you could post a link?

    I would use GEN but GEN has some bugs that make certain games freeze (such as Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier).
