Need help converting FF IX from PAL to NTSC

Post by stevealexanderames » Wed Nov 21, 2012 12:22 pm

The title is pretty clear :lol: i'm trying to play Final Fantasy IX in a decent way on my PSP, but i have the same old dang issue with the display options due to the format of the game (i have the italian PAL version of the PSX discs); the fullscreen option has two big black bars over and under the screen, and the "custom" display option cuts the menus and the dialogs...

is there anyone who know how to use some PALtoNTSC tool and knows how to help me converting the game?

there are lots of tools actually, but i can use none of em :lol: look here (i'm pretty sure that site does not contain anything illegal :? else please delete the link)

i tried with PSX2PSP too using the second Y-position patch, the program says that a patch is found and while converting to EBOOT it seems to apply it, but the result is an EBOOT that boots but then just freeze after the ps logo...

What CFW are you using?
If you're using PRO, can you not just force region in the VSH menu? It should have the european-PAL option in there?

Don't use PSX2PSP. Use POPStation GUI v3.00 BETA by ZingaBurga. http://endlessparadigm.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=57

Check the PAL fixes. Worked like a charm on my PAL version of FF9.

i'll try it right now, thanks for the suggestion :)

EDIT: nope, just the same result, i don't know... can you tell me what settings did you use to convert the game exactly? and the pops?
