Long story short, I'm trying to play an English patched version of my dump of "Jojo no Kimyou na Bouken - Ougon no Kaze", but I can't get it to work, either as an ISO or via a PS2 classic. It seems to boot into the PS2 emulator, but then just goes back to the XMB (hdmi loses input, gives a black 720p screen for a minute, no input, then back to XMB). It works fine in PCSX2, and all my other backups work fine on my PS3, plus it says its compatible on this compatibility sheet.
I'm currently running Rebug 4.81, and it's been a while since I've messed with PS3 homebrew, so let me know if you have any suggestions, questions or solutions, thanks.

edit: it also might be worth noting that, when mounting the iso, it shows on the xmb as a blue disc, whereas the rest of my ps2 games mount with a gold disc icon. I don't know how the system chooses which icon, but I do know that the jojo.iso is 3gb, which is definitely not a cd-size game, which is what the blue discs on ps2 meant lol. I'm not sure if there's anything to gather from this, but i figure it's worth mentioning.

Probably doesn't help much but I ran an English patched Front Mission 5 ISO and got it to work through Multiman and Webman. My only issue is I kept adding ISOs which causes multiman to crash upon launch every time which is why I later tried it with webman. No issues. Do your patched ISOs work on a hacked PS2 or a PS2 emulator? Have you checked to make sure they've been patched properly?
