Question about Activision Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain for PlayStation 1

1 Answer

My PS doesn't acknowledge my Blood Omen or Soul Reaver games.

I just received my legal copies of Blood Omen and Soul Reaver, but my PS doesn't want to play them.. the "Please insert a PS or PS2 format disc" screen keeps appearing. I have no idea what the problem is. Can anyone help me?

Check the text on the back of the game cases. My copy of The Da Vinci Code (UK version) says "This software is only compatible with the PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system displaying the [__PAL__] Logo", whereas my Backyard Wrestling: Don't Try This At Home (US version, sent by a friend from Canada), has the legend "THIS SOFTWARE IS COMPATIBLE WITH PLAYSTATION 2 CONSOLES WITH THE NTSC U/C DESIGNATION."

also, check the codes on the left side of the disc, again, The Da Vinci Code has the game's internal ID code as "SLES-54031" and the [__PAL__] logo, whereas BAckyard Wrestling shows the [_NTSC_|_U/C_] logo, and the internal identifier SLUS 20638. The 4 letter code identifieds the country/region it was intended for sale and use in.

If this is the case, then your only option is to buy the games again, from a local retailer, to ensure the correct region, buy a foreign console, or, have your console chipped to play imports/copies. Be warned, however, that not all chips are perfect, and that you may end up damaging your console if you chip it yourself. I chipped my PS2 a while back, to play BY Wrestling, some 3 months later, the chip caught fire. It was a pretty display, but my ps2 ceased to function. permanently.

My playstation has stop loading,but the disc continue spin


Hello, this problem is common. PS1 is a great machine, but the laser disc lens after serving us for years at one point it stops reading discs. Usually this problem doesn't happen suddenly, but there is a time period in between where sometimes it loads games and sometimes not. If you've noticed this symptom, then you may try to bring few more life to the PS. - Switch off your PS and open the round cover, locate where the laser lens is. Wet a cotton bud with one or two drops of a common glass cleaner. Clean very gently the lens for like ten seconds with circular movements, wait one minute so it'll get dry. Now put your game in and see if it has worked. You may try more than one disc if the first doesn't load, because some games are easier to load. - If this won't work, you may try to put your PS standing in vertical. Put it on one of its side, maybe better standing on a wall or on the side of the tv. It may sound weird, but sometimes it has worked for me. If one side wont work, just try also the other one. - If none of the above will work, i may suggest you to get a new one, on ebay you can find still many PS for few bucks.
Hope it'll help, good luck! Peter

Are the playstation 1 games discs or are they something else.


Hi the ps1 games come in cd format so if your buying the games from shops then they come as cds, how ever if you search using google you can find sites that let you download the games onto a memory card this isnt legal so icant give you many details but searching google will help you then copy the games onto a memory card and also the ps1 data onto the card and you can then play games without cds you just insert the memory card in the card slot on the ps and then you play the games that way.

I hope this is some help to you

Hi, i have a ps one i want to connect to my tv via the aerial. iv plugged it in and checked the av channels but cant find it, is there anything i need to do?


Hi, right now as your plugging it in via the aerial socket then this means you wont be using any of the input channels or source channels such as av ok.

now what you can try is when its plugged in and switched on go through the channels on the telly using the telly remote try channels you dont use such as 0 6 7 8 9 10 if after trying these you still have no picture then you need to put the telly on a channel you dont use say 0 then make sure ps is switched on with a game in then on telly remote choose menu or setup then you need to use the tv setup function to search the frequency as if you are tuning a channel in so do this till you see the game then store it onto that channel, now when ever you want to play the ps you just plug it in and put it on the channel you tuned in.

or an easier option would be to go to the well known auction site and buy a ps1 scart lead then when you plug this into your telly you just choose av1 or av2 and then you can play it without tuning the channel in so this owuld be the easiest way

let me know if you have any problems
