Beetle PSX and ECC/DCC games

I’ve seen a lot of people saying how their patched games are not working, but I’m having the reverse problem of that. I’m trying to start the french version of Final Fantasy VIII. The disc is confirmed to be a perfect match redump match ( ) but the game won’t load, I’m just getting a black screen post-BIOS. As far as I know I’m also using correct BIOS dumps

I could not find any information anywhere about that… can Beetle PSX actually play games with protection? If not how can this be implemented, and can it be done without patching the ROMs?

Do you have the sbi file(s)?

Oh I see, it’s not the ECC/DCC part that’s causing issues but an additional crypto-protection, that’s why I couldn’t find the info I was looking for. Thanks :sweat_smile:
