PPSSPP God of War games black screen and not responding

As the title says, God of War games not working (Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta), I have 40 PSP games and they all run (they boot at least) but God Of War games just show a black screen and don’t do anything after, no logos, just nothing, I’ve tried with a clean Retroarch installation with the same results, obviously I have the assets folder in place, I tried using iso and cso files, trying files with different regions (I was able to see a warning screen for epilepsy stuff in Ghost of Sparta but then it stops working) and nothing seems to fix it… core is updated, latest version and even my phone can boot the game with no problems at all… Ryzen 3600, GTX 1080, 16GB RAM.

Anyone able to reproduce this?
