Question from Icheeva

Is this a glitch on disk 2 or is it scratched?

Im in the city of the ancients again, when this old guy tells me about holy and puts the key in the music box...

on my ps2 it just stayed there with him doing his default motion

then i tried it on my ps1 and it played an extremmely laggy cutscene and then it did the same thing

whats wrong? i dont want to start again ive got cloud all the way to lvl 69 and i dont want to start again

Icheeva provided additional details:

Its scratched in a few places yeah, and it wouldnt lag in a cutscene if it was a glitch would it?

Icheeva provided additional details:

i kept doing the scene and it got a little further but still breaks

im going to buy it off the PSN store, but my memory card converter doesn t read ps1 memory cards but its supposed to

Iamownage asked for clarification:

Just a question, how did u have cloud lvl 69 in the temple of the ancients im on the north crater with lvl 63 cloud O_o

Icheeva provided additional details:

To Lanownage; Yep he was lvl 69 XD

Ive got the dis working again and im in the north crater and hes lvl 93 now

jmanns asked for clarification:

Im having sorta the same problem. on disc 2 @ north crater after the scene where cloud gives the black materia to sephiroth the second time it freezes but hojos hands are still moving. What should i do?

Has to be a scratch. Obviously if two different consoles are having the same problem, its probably a scratch or smudge on the disc. If you have a PS3 however, you can buy the whole game for 9.99 off of the PSN in download form; much cheaper than replacing the discs.

First, is the disc scratched? If so then it's not a glitch.

Same thing happens with my game but what I found out is that if you keep doing the scene it will eventually work dont know ho long it takes but, I believe it helps to hold down the select button throughout the scene. let me know if this works.

if you see some scratches on the FRONT of the disc then its probably not a glitch because it is worse to be scratched on front

I have had this problem before, but try to move around when the old guy (Bugenhagen) is doing the default motion. If the problem persists take the disc to a game store and have it cleaned.

I your PS and PS2 froze your disc is scratched. But i heard that if you open and then close the disc tray(at least on PS, not sure about PS2 or PS3) then it will skip the cutscene. I heard it from i friend, I don't know if it actually works.

the memory card converter? if you still have it...boot up your ps2 with no disc inside...transfer the save files from your ps memory card to the ps2 memory card. then use the ps2 memory card on the converter...and you have your psones save file on your ps3. :D

or you can alway use a psp, you know? it does work on psp...which is what i'm playing on right now...

however, if it deeply scratched...then i guess you can buy those scratches repair or put it away and just play the psn the same thing anyway...

You should use toothpaste. I've used it on twelve games and they are basically renewed. Put three seperate drops on your disk(doesn't matter how big just don't waste), smooth them over the whole disk with your fingers, wait 5 min atleast, rinse it off under the faucet, and dry off with a t owel. Leave no water drops and you can use your fingers to help scrape off the toothpaste as long as the water is running. Baking soda toothpaste usually has the best results. I don't know why. Don't believe the popular belief that this ruins games. I haven't played zone of enders in years but now I can.

Just open cover and put any other disk, it should continue, maybe play some different scene, but you should be able to pass that part. I played most part of 3rd disk with 2nd disk in PS, since 3rd was scratched. I just used it to load game, than opened PS and replaced disks. Only problem was that sometimes it will play different FMV.

TO Mitsurugi:
To change discs on a PSxClassic game on your PS3, when the game says to change disc, press the PS Button and it'll give you a list of commands. one of those options says "Switch Disc". Press that, and move the directional pad up or down to change the disc number.
This is the same with all PSN classics that originally had multiple discs.

^^ clean your discs. Wipe with a very soft clothe like a white t-shirt or a soft bounty paper towel. Even better would be "lens paper" for cleaning camera and microscope lens (I don't think lens paper is very expensive). Wipe from the center hole outwards, not in a circle. Do not apply excessive pressure. Using coarse materials, pressure and circular motion will add scratches to the disc. Using a t-shirt even may do that as well, but it might be the "finest" thing you have. A tiny bit of water or salivia will help clean it of.

Its crazy how much a used copy of this will sell for...a local used games shop near me had like 3 of them for 45 dollars each...lucky I got given to me a few years back. It might suck but you may have to get an additional copy. I had to do that a few years back after the 2nd disc (gaea clifts) kept screwing up on a psONE, and both versions of a ps2.

sAviOr2k5 answered:

There's only two ways to go around that:

Ask someone to borrow you the second CD from Final Fantasy VII. (This one is pretty obvious)

Play it on Playstation 1 a.k.a. PSX, yes, I'm not joking around, PSX reading laser is better then the one on PS2, I'll give you a very close example, in two ocasions on my Final Fantasy VIII (8) game, the game gets stuck in PS2, while PSX reads it, I also tried it in two diferent PS2's, in two different CD's (the game is four cd's) right at the start when Squall goes against Biggs and Wedge, and near the end when Squall fights a trooper in the air to save Rinoa, so yeah, if you got a PSX lying around (I'm lucky to have one) give it a shot, you might be surprised.

samg1427 answered:

the same happened to me, I waited ages and eventually something happened. You may also encounter this problem after defeating THE Diamond Weapon boss which isn't far off... (give people fire draining armor and accessories for that) if the problem happens after fighting diamond weapon, restart the game.
