I am trying to copy a game. Final Fantasy VIII for Playstation 1. I am using CloneCD (version 126.96.36.199) to copy the CD. The first time it said it was successfully copied but when I try to play it I get the intro of PSX: the orange diamond and the Logo with “Sony computer entertainment Europe” and then a black screen with nothing. The sentence "Sony computer entertainment Europe is read from the disc, because an NTSC version of the disc would say “Sony computer entertainment America”, so I think it’s a safety issue. Then I found this site and downloaded some profiles for CloneCD. I used some profile named “PSX [libcrypt] Max Read And Write” but I got the same problem. A black screen. I always burnt my CD’s at 1x speed to be sure.
When I use the original disc in my Playstation it works. I have other copied games that work very well on my playstation 1. (yes, it’s chipped)
I once heard the Final Fantasy games for playstation were heavily protected. Could it be that you’re not able to copy this one game?
Can someone please help me with this?
I will be greatful.
