Thanx jeffx ! That fixed it ! You're right too, with regards to that patch - to the unsuspecting, that might be frustrating if not everything is downloaded.... I do wonder why the patch has to download anything? Why isn't it fully self-contained? Most patches are like that....
There are three types of people in this world.... there are those that make things happen, those that watch things happen, and there are those who wonder what happened.
Well, that certainly explains my issue, too, then. And I thought it was my machine. I've had so many problems with its Windows installation. Hardly a day goes by that I don't think of reformatting it, but I have SO much installed on it and this is mid-semester and all. At least it doesn't crash on me and cause me to lose work.
I was having the same issues with Ys II eternal and disableing the avi playback works but my game was still playing in japanese. I checked out the files that were extracted over and for some reason it did not extract all of them over. So I dragged and dropped the files straight from winRAR over to the directory and reapplied the patch (still have avi playback turned off) and everything worked like a dream! Sweet Im glad to be able to get it to work....If you still cant get it to work PS2 has a release that has extra characters and a new battle system (I believe it was an english release) with different music....>SO that could always be a second thought.
