Lali ho. I've noticed that some of my games, notably Futurama and Dirge Of Cerberus, seem to be struggling with cutscenes. Gameplay seems unaffected thus far but the cutscenes stutter every now and then. Is this something to do with ESR, FreeMCBoot, the quality of the disks used, etc? Everything else seems unaffected for the time being, so I'm not thinking its the disks. I used Tesco Value DVD-R disks for the first batch, which the two affected games are stored on. Maybe they're just dodgy copies? Might be nothing but if it is a symptom of a larger problem with the system, I'd rather nip it in the bud before my PS2 dies on me and I'm left with sod all to do with my time.
