    Are you using a legitimate copy?

    Electronics Boutique is selling Skies of Arcadia game for $19.99 right now, so is Shenmue for the same price. [​IMG]

    I got them both (as well as Grandia II from EB), [​IMG]

    Shenmue I've finished, but like kabe2k, it's been a long time since I've last played SOA (still was on the first disc zzz).

    I was just asking cuz I know that the pirated version does some weird stuff with the game (real-time decompression and such) so it might cause the game to crash, definately worth buying though.

    how much was grandia 2?

    hmmm.. if i pick that up and silver i think i'll have all the dc rpgs that are in english

    sad

    but then again the segacd seems like the only sega console that had a decent ratio of rpgs to everything else

    I got Grandia II for $19.95 plus shipping at Electronics Boutique almost 9 months ago. However, they don't carry Grandia II for the DC anymore according to their DC RPG section; all they have are the PS2 and PC versions, both at $39.95.

    grandia 2 for the pc doesnt run very well even on decent systems from what ive seen, your better off sticking with the dc version

    ive seen in some of the ps2 reviews that they feel the dc version was better than the ps2 one as well, so bear that in mind as well

    Hmm, it seems that EB has lowered the price of the PC version of Grandia II; it's now $19.99.

    Don't forget that the DC version comes with a music disc. [​IMG] Can someone confirm whether the PS2 or PC version comes with it as well?

    Man... funcoland and their affliates really suck, atleast over here. When they get used games they toss the box or get rid of the front/back cd covers and then put the cartridges and cds into plastic sleeves. On the topic of the Skies of Arcadia rip, it's horrible, the music is out of sync and the thing always stutters, I picked up my original copy for $15. It's worth every penny and more.

    just to let you know I have an original copy and mine freezes before a ship battle after the same cutscene every time. All you see it a black screen and hear the music playing

    GD-ROMs are more sensible to dust and minor scratches than CDs. I got a RE: Code Veronica that freezes in a certain FMV, after you fight that "dude" with the big axe.

    Maybe you sohuld try resurfacing the disc?

    If you afraid of that, the only option other than buying a whole new copy is borrowing a copy, playing past that point, saving, then going back to your disc.

    I've heard this game is especially bad for fecking up. I assume you've tried wipeing it carefully and common sense stuff like that. It sucks that it can ruin a whole game thanks to one little spec/scratch. I'd suggest buying those spiffy new cd repair products that are out everywhere and give them a shot. Other than that, hit your dc when it gets to the part that it screws up. Not really smart but it worked for me at the end of Rez, it freezes there for some reason. I must skip it ahead enough to continue. Then again, that dc did end up electrocuting me a bit so I suppose it got me back for smacking it <_<

    I actually have this music cd, I traded a guy a game for 2 VMUs and he also sent that just as a bonus. You can have it if you want it [​IMG]
