View Full Version : Front Mission 3?

I've tried everything. From changing the ID, to reducing the amount of compression, and it still freezes up mid-battle. I'm on the mission where you're at the powerplant, and no matter what, no matter what version, how it's converted, it still freezes. I've tried on 3.40OE and now I'm on 3.30OE, and it still does. Does anyone have a clue how to fix it?

most games work better with 3.03OE, try that dude!

I'll try that and get back to you, thanks!

Press start while in a battle and activate the battle skip feature.

Actually, changing to 3.03 OEC fixed every problem, even with battle animations on. Thanks!

Looks like it started freezing again at about 3 hours in. Agghhghg.

So apparently it's being caused by a specific audio bug, since it only freezes when entering battle against a wanzer with destroyed legs. As soon as the leg sound starts playing, there's a good chance it will freeze.

its been more than a year and still no fix for this. i wonder if someone could replace the offending audio file to experiment with it. its still the best game for psx~

I have tested and verified that front mission 3 works flawlessly.

1 catch however, I will explain.

I have read in multiple threads that the intro was locking while the leg animation/sound effect was working now. This only seems true of a COMPRESSED eboot of the game. I had a compressed one I downloaded a while back. But I also have the actual PS1 game. So I just made an UNCOMPRESSED eboot of the game and I have been playing it for hours purposely going for the legs whenever I can.

No problems whatsoever. Runs like a dream and I can finally play one of my favorite games wherever I want.

Spread the news. I tried to google if anyone realized this game works. But found no such luck. This needs to be told because I know people have been trying to get this game to work for a couple years!

Have fun!:thumbup:

Well I can't say for sure, but I'm playing it on 5.00m33-3 Phat with 3.90 pops, uncompress and it hasn't freeze on destroying the legs. So go with this setting to see if it works!
